Default indian wisdom...

A wise old Indian Chief sat in his hut on the reservation, smoking a
Ceremonial Pipe and eyeing two U.S. Government officials sent to interview "Chief Two Eagles".

One official asked, "You have observed the white man for 90 years. You've seen his wars and his technological advances.
You've seen his progress, and the damage he's done."

The Chief nodded in agreement.
The Official continued, "Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?"

The Chief stared at the Government Officials for over a minute and then calmly replied."When white man found this land, Indians were running it."

"No taxes."
"No debt."

"Plenty buffalo."
"Plenty beaver."

"Women did all the work."

"Indian man spent all day hunting and fishing."

"All night having sex."


Then Chief leaned back and smiled, "Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that."
