    When did she know? Doesn't matter, it's her behavior now that is sinking her. She knows she's not, so she should admit her error promptly and take her medicine. But she isn't doing that, she's falling back on lame excuses, delay and my favorite, "I feel Cherokee".
    We've already been over this...3 Cherokee members showed up at the protest. 3. And there are members who dont even care.
    Silly poor people

    Here's the timeline:


    Ye.. that's right.. and A Jackson was the only president who defied the US Supreme Court which ruled they were a sovereign nation.. He told the court to keep them there if they could and he told Georgians to light a fire under them and they will leave.

    And ... the Cherokee had helped him win the Battle of Horseshoe Bend.

    Its not a proud moment in American history..

    Yep... here's the supposed famous quote Andrew Jackson said of the Supreme Court ruling that said the Cherokee could stay.


    "John Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it!"


    All this after Jackson allied with the Cherokee on the battlefield to fight the Seminole. What a betrayer prick he was.

    In his time he was a conqueror. He was a prick and a lot of other things but, in fair play as a leader in American History: there is little doubt about his stature.

    For those of you that disagree, a history of the US, or even the world might help.

    He's known for four things.


    1) Killing indians
    2) Fighting the battle of New Olreans against orders and after the war of 1812 had ended
    3) Trail of tears
    4) Dismantling the central bank


    I'll bet that's a lot more A. Jackson history that you could pull off the top of your head.

    I'd like to go the other way with it and nationalize the fed and put it under the authority of the congress which constitutionally has the power of the purse. Then it can be audited all the time and we'd have pressures on those who print the money rather than having it privatized and out of our reach.

    Are you really that thick. I am not a great fan, but his performance, except for a dogmatic hacks is historically deemed great or near great. Btw, this seems like it's goning to be one of these inane threads where posters continue till kingdom cone.

    If you come up with anything relevant I might respond ( 11:00 PM here)
