Osda Sunalei (Good Morning) I have been reading the posts about people learning english and about prejudices, My family is primarily Cherokee I have been trying to learn tsalgi (the Cherokee Language)When my ancestors were young they were forced to learn english, to leave behind all their beliefs and traditions. I do agree that a person should learn the language of the country they have came to , But wouldnt the English language be just a foreign here as some of you feel that Spanish , or french or german is? I am a american proud of where I live and who I am, I feel no ill will toward anyone and believe in "Do unto others as you would have done unto to you" I agree that there seems to be a lot of bigotry and prejudice on this board, but I am not leaving it, instead I will have my say . Now as for Illegal Aliens coming here to get medical help.. Wouldnt you take your child anywhere that would help them? WOuldnt you be willing to do something Illegal to save their life? If you say no, then I think you are a liar. These are my opinions and if you dont like them then dont read what I have Said,,Jim

Good for you. Was waiting to hear from a real native of our country. Has been a heck of a couple days on this board. But interesting.

"A real native of our country", eh? How quaint. Show me anyone who has ever lived on this continent that can truthfully say: "None of my ancestors were born anywhere but here".

To answer the last question first, yes I would. It is a shame though, that living in one of the most technologically advanced countries medically speaking, does not entitle you to any of the rewards of same if you do not have the money to pay for it. IMHO, Americans are struggling and sacrificing to pay for services that many immigrants seem to get for nothing. Or more specifically, at the expense of the middle class working man via taxation. That was not the case with the young girl that recently died, just another thought. This is an entirely different debate.

As far as our native Americans, nothing can be done or said to change or right the wrongs that were perpetrated on them hundreds of years ago. I personally wasn't there and had no choice to voice my opinion on the way things were being done. I don't think anyone would disagree with the fact that things could have been handled differently/better. I too have cherokee blood running through my veins as I'm sure many Americans do. Lots of things have changed, some for the worse, some for the better. The indians used to beleive that the land could not be 'owned' and that it was there for everyone's use. I'll take down my fences if you will.

true, i might just go to another country to save a life but i could not expect them to accomodate
my language barrier. i would have gone to their land and was seeking their and help not the other way around.

Before you start for the day, you have to bring a pot of water to a boil and make note of the temperature...Then when you are boiling your sap, wait till it reaches 7.1 degrees above the boiling point you noted for the water...That is when the syrup is done...

If you have any more Ag or Syrup questions, please feel free to ask...
