Uncle Sam Wants a Loan - Happy 4th of July

A short video from another perspective. Independence was not all inclusive back in 1776 this is a part of history to be remembered as well. Many lost a lot for the gain of USA existence. Don't squander it by loosing it to Corporate and Banker take-over.

Oh perfect is that? May I offer you a blanket and some trinkets? Don't mind the diseases in the blanket. What goes around.....

Indeed Kit I think they did extremely well pulling in many concepts into a short video; from the obvious to the more subtle.

That is so funny! The way the 'casino head' is really low-key & serious, just like Al Pacino in the Godfather!
And then, he begins by offering a treaty! And from California, Nevada & Texas, it's the whole USA! And, finally, offering trinkets for Manhattan! And that little wink, for the offer of the blanket... It's a combination of 'offering a proposition he couldn't refuse' and payback, in exactly the same way the US treated First Nations!

Another good find, Dandelion.

That was wonderful. And unfortunately a pretty tight representation of historical facts.
