Indian Chief

I received the following e-mail about an Indian Chief’s answer to where we went wrong. Enjoy.

An old Indian Chief sat in his teepee on the reservation, smoking a pipe and eyeing two U. S. Government officials sent to interview him.

“Chief Two Eagles,” one official said, “you have observed the white man for 90 years. You’ve seen his wars and his technological advances. You’ve seen his progress, and the damage he’s done.” The Chief nodded in agreement.

The official continued, “Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?”

The Chief stared at the Government officials for a minute and then replied, “When white man came to this land, Indians were running it.
We had:

No taxes.

No debt.

Plenty buffalo.

Plenty beaver.

Women did all the work.

Medicine man was free.

Indian man spent all day hunting and fishing.

All night having sex.”

Then the Chief leaned back and said,” Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve a system like that.”
