    You make no sense. The Supreme court had already in effect ruled on the issue.

    He who has the most guns wins! Now, tell us about how "your people" tortured, mutilated, and killed each other for centuries before their was even a U.S. Goverment.

    so, you came and killed 90% of us off to civilize us. You are a prime example of why I have to try hard to make myself like white people. Egotistical garbage.

    You have been spouting garbage. Praising the Confederacy, an entity which was fighting to keep a whole race of people enslaved and tearing down our flag and the rest of the nation that has done so much for so many people all over the world.

    No one, no nation is perfect, but i tell you this the United States is better than just about any other place on the planet.

    Why don't you just move to Zimbabwe or Venezuela, maybe you will finally find some happiness and contentment instead of subjecting yourself to living in a place and under a government you obviously hate. You are free to go- now be gone with you!

    Reynold's ancestry is, for the most part, Native American or as the Canadians term it First Nations. As such, he has ancestors who were on the receiving end of U.S. Army firepower.

    That’s being a bit harsh don’t you think? Nonetheless we are all Americans.. black, white, red, brown. All have shed blood in wars to defend the freedoms we uphold. Reynolds has a legal right to point out atrocities & we should all recognize them as wrong and then move on...they are in the past. My sons fiancé is part Native American and I embrace that my grandchildren will have that in their DNA. Teaching them that the Nations flag and anthem represents a country that, while not perfect provides a constitution, try’s to do the right thing in a worldly spectrum is sufficient for me to solute it wherever the NA is played (both in home or out in public)...so yes Salty, I do salute the NA in my home.

    I heard just that type of explaination from an Israeli regarding Arabs, they are our American Indians and what did your country do to them? Shameful.
