An old Indian Chief sat in his hut on the reservation, smoking a
ceremonial pipe and eyeing two U. S. Government officials sent to
interview him. "Chief Two Eagles" asked one official, "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 over a minute and
then calmly replied, "When white man found this land, Indians were
running it." "No taxes." "No debt." "Plenty buffalo." "Plenty beaver."
"Women did all the work." "Medicine man free." "Indian man spent all day
hunting and fishing." "All night having sex."

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