Occupy the Mayflower and sail back.

My family didn't come over on the Mayflower.

I always wanted to do a comic where a Buffalo and a Native American are watching the Pilgrims land. The Native American says something like, "F#cking Immigrants" and the Buffalo looks at the Native American and says something like, "You're telling me..."

Migration is the way of life. It is violent migration that is "bad."

We can't turn back time. We can only better the way we move forward.

Or to quote the article I link to in this post:

"The Revolution is when you stop pointing fingers, stop wasting time with those that disagree with you, and start building the society you want with your friends and family, with your neighbors and community. The Revolution will not be televised because the Revolution is a choice you make about how you see the world around you, and how you place yourself in it."

You might check your understanding of "where the buffalo roam" before you make too many copies of your comic.

Suggest you stick to quotations - that one is GOOD. Thanks

Awesome, glad you liked the quote (I quoted myself, as I wrote the article).

Do you mean the movie about Hunter S. Thompson staring Bill Murray? :)

"The American bison is a relative newcomer to North America, having originated in Eurasia and migrated over the Bering Strait. About 10,000 years ago it replaced the steppe bison (Bison priscus), a previous immigrant that was much larger. It is thought that the long-horned bison[vague] became extinct due to a changing ecosystem and hunting pressure following the development of the Clovis point and related technology, and improved hunting skills. During this same period, other megafauna vanished and were replaced to some degree by immigrant Eurasian animals that were better adapted to predatory humans. The American bison, technically a dwarf form[citation needed], was one of these animals."

"Archeologists theorize that the first people who came to this continent followed herds of horses, wooly mammoths, and ancient bison across this land bridge."

Everyone is an immigrant...didn't we all immigrate from the sea onto the land? "There goes the neighborhood" said the plants...

Your humor was OK but your set-up was flawed. Don't really think there were any buffalo in that part of the country to watch the Pilgrims land. That was my point about "where the buffalo roam" More based on my knowledge of buffalo that that of wikipedia.

It involved a talking Buffalo...

Occupy China, Cuba, North Korea, Vietnam or Laos. Those all seem to run their countries the way OWS likes it.

And in reality, that is where the 99% of the world live. Those are the ones that really suffer. We should Occupy the Third-World and spread love instead of fear and hate.
