How strongly do you feel that the Founding Fathers were very moral and responsible people?

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

Question by Dairy’s Scary: How strongly do you feel that the Founding Fathers were very moral and responsible people?
With only the love of country and countrymen and women at heart??

Do you think they were really all we hold them up to be? or were they trying to get over on people just like those politicians of today??

I like to think that they really had what was best for their New Country at heart. However, I find it hard to believe that all was A OK back then as far as corruption and lobbyists and whatnot goes.

How exactly were Asian people treated throughout the history of America? Even today?

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

Question by meOh: How exactly were Asian people treated throughout the history of America? Even today?
All of our history text-books focused only on the European people and the African people, but never made any reference to Asian people.
I know most Asians came during the Gold Rush, but were they treated badly like how African people were? Were they treated differently after the civil war?

Best answer:

Answer by Bachelorette
The Civil War which was between the North and South had no effect on how Asians were treated.Also, there was a higher concentration of Asians living in the West at that time because they helped build the railroads.
Asians were not treated nearly as badly as Africans but thousands of Japanese citizens were unfairly placed in concentration camps after Pearl Harbor. The concentration camps weren’t anything like the death and work camps in Europe that the Jews were in such as Auschwitz or Sobibhor(sp), but they like the Jews were put there against their will.
They weren’t treated well at all when they were put to work on the railroads. The Asians built the railroads from West to East and I believe the Irish built from East to West. I might be wrong about the Irish part though I haven’t been in a history class in a while lol.
Almost forgot about the “Gentlemen’s Agreement” which was an act passed by Congress I believe it had something to do with preventing more Asians from entering the country.

Does anyone see something uniquely different with how these troops deaths were reported?

Saturday, November 5th, 2011

Question by Really Now?: Does anyone see something uniquely different with how these troops deaths were reported?
http://www.denverpost.com/ci_12119972?source=rss

I do:

The title is “Truck Bomber” first and then “suicide attacker”.

Then it says that the 5 were in the “wrong place at the wrong time”. The bomb was set:
“near a national police station in a residential neighborhood in the northern city of Mosul as a U.S. convoy was passing”

Well aren’t convoys a common things around police stations, military recruit stations, hospitals, and training areas? Plus is this the only time troops were in the wrong place at the wrong time, and just “driving by”, I have never heard it told like that before.

So can someone explain to me how the “wrong place at the wrong time” works?

Best answer:

Answer by Wes
It was a weak attempt to blame the military while sympathizing with the bombers

Question by Whoze: If you were able to, would you shrink yourself?
If yes, tell me what height you would shrink down to and what you would do at that height. (For example, “I’d shrink to a height of 1 inch, and I’d ride on the top of a toy train”.) Be creative. Ten points today for Best Answer.
