Ruby, That's Native Americans not "American Indians". I wish you'd follow
your own dogma, Ruby ... for how are we supposed to take you seriously when
you don't? Such exclusivist language and concepts should be eliminated, you
rugged individualist you ... I wonder if those who want to remove such

are subject to the same controls they wish to place on others?

"As witnesses not of our intentions but of our conduct, we can be
true or false, and the hypocrite's crime is that she [he] bears
false witness against herself [himself]. What makes it so
plausible to assume that hypocrisy is the vice of vices is that
integrity can indeed exist under the cover of all other vices
except this one. Only crime and the criminal, it is true,
confront us with the perplexity of radical evil; but only the
hypocrite is really rotten to the core." Hannah Arendt
