Australia got all the criminals, America got the Puritans.
By all accounts Australia got the better deal.
(This was kinda of off topic as the post was about racism.)
The thought that occurred to me was how in the fuck did one small boatload of religious assholes fuck up such a huge country????
I've seen the replica of the Mayflower and actually been on it. Also I have read history books and know about the Puritans and how many of them there were on that ship. So my question still is: How in the fuck did such a small number of religious assholes fuck up a country as big as ours???? Part of the answer is other religious assholes took some of the Puritan ideas and ran with them and are still running with them. Some of them actually out-Puritan the Puritans. Other than their whining about the "War on Christmas" as the Puritans didn't celebrate Christmas.
My question still remains. How in the fuck did such a small group of religious assholes fuck up a country this big???
