    _American Genocide: The United States and the California Indian Catastrophe 1846-1873_
    by Benjamin Madley (assistant professor of history at UCLA) (2016)
    discusses the mass slaughter of California's indigenous peoples.

    This book stands as a rebuttal to both Americans who prefer to glorify
    the white conquest of indigenous peoples and to Americans who insist that
    blacks have been far more oppressed than every other minority in US history.

    That's how countries are conquered.

    It is the reason why people should not allow their country to be invaded by outsiders.

    Let the record show that Eladar apparently regards genocide as a normal part of building a nation.

    History demonstrates that it is.

    We are seeing the beginnings of it today.

    People are political realists when things go in their favor, and are political idealists when they don't.

    And what about Turkeys? How many Turkeys are needlessly slaughtered every year, just so people (of all backgrounds) can eat them?

    What?? I don't ever remember not liking cranberries.

    Not cranberries all by itself, but it goes well with turkey and mashed potato and gravy. Sometimes I would mix it altogether on my plate so it was one big mountain of stuff... and stuffing. A pile of turkey stuffing and turkey and mashed potatoes and gravy, with cranberries on the side. I'd take a bite from the big pile of yummy stuff and a smaller bite of cranberries. It was chew swallow and repeat until I had to loosen my pants... and then I'd keep on going until all I could do was lay on the couch (or floor) like a beached whale.

    And the next day I could make turkey sandwiches, or heat up a big plate full of leftovers and do it all over again.

    At my house growing up sometimes I would get a sliced disc from the can. I tried it by itself and it was pretty nasty.

    Tried lingonberries last year with some pork and it was pretty tasty. I'll try the stuff out of the can with the turkey and see how it goes.

    I don't see running mashed potatoes with the stuff. I just like mashed potatoes with gravy.

    Some years I make turkey carcass soup. Didn't do ot last year but might this year.

    I'm fairly sure fish and pie are politically correct... but not fish pie, that's just wrong.

    This youtube clip shows you don't need to eat the turkey to enjoy it...

    Pie is ok as long as it isn't minced meat. Don't know why they call it that since I have never seen meat in it. It is just some weird tasting apple and raisin kind of thing.
