The Tea Partiers are stupid

Standard

They rail against high taxes. The Boston Tea Party was an attack on a tax cut!

The Tea Party want law and order but glorify a crime. The Boston Tea Party was an attack on private property. The Tea Partiers want to see taxes reduced but military spending increased. So much for small government! How would such an economically illiterate policy be financed? By borrowing even more and burdening generations yet unborn with an odious debt.

Dominica

DOMINICA

Dominica is a country in the American continent. This nation is an island that lies in the Caribbean Sea.

The aboriginal people of this land were Amerindian. Whites came to this country in the 16th century. European diseases spelt doom to the inhabitants of the island.

This island is very warm and fertile. The British seized control of it. It was hard toiling under the broiling sun. Britons sailed to Africa. The African countries often waged war against each other. Those who fell captive were sold into servitude. Enslaved persons were purchased by Britishers. These luckless prisoners were taken by ship across the briny ocean. They were forced to labour in Dominica.

In the 1830s slavery was outlawed throughout the British Empire. The people of Dominica were free. At first the white plantation owners still dominated the island’s legislature. Only men of property were permitted to vote. However, within a few years the majority of the electorate was black. The people of the island were left to their own devices.

Dominica became independent in the 1970s. In the 1980s the country was ruled by Eugenia Charles. She was the first woman to rule any Caribbean nation. She was called the Margaret Thatcher of the Caribbean but she was not as right wing as Thatcher. She supported the US military intervention in Grenada.

The head of state is Elizabeth II. She is the same person as the Queen of the United Kingdom. English is the official language. Most people are Christians. The majority of Dominicans are black.

The flag has a green field. There is a yellow and white cross. There is a blue and green of paradise on the flag. There is some black on the flag too.

The country is gorgeous but does not have good sandy beaches. There are not many tourists here. It is quieter than some other islands in the Antilles.

The Spanish found the island to be exceptionally fertile. The land is very hot and tropical. The Spanish sailed to Africa. African countries fought each other. Those who were vanquished were often made chattel slaves. These captives were sometimes sold to Spaniards. The Spanish sailors took these people across the ocean. The enslaved people were subjected to the most horrific brutality. They were forced to work by whipping and torture.

The plantations in this country made a pretty penny for the Spanish masters.

The Dominican Republic ceased to be a Spanish colony in the 1820s. It became an independent state. The Spanish planter class still ruled the land. The black people gained their freedom in the late 19th century.

In the 1960s this country was ruled by a tyrant named Alejandro Turjillo. He was violently anti-communist and therefore had a good relationship with the United States.

In the late 16th century the Spanish conquered this country. That is why Spanish is the official language. Christianity is the main faith of this country. The Spanish Catholic missionaries grafted Catholicism onto pre-existing pantheons. Local divinities were reimagined as saints.

The Andes Mountains run through this country. Ecuador is beside the Pacific Ocean. The Galapagos Islands are Ecuadorean territory. These are the isles where Charles Darwin formed the theory of Evolution. This was based on the way lizards had developed the ability to stop their hearts and restart them at will.

The flag is made up of horizontal bars – yellow , blue and red. They are in that order from top to bottom. Yellow takes up half the flag and the other two colours have a quarter each. There is a symbol on the yellow part. This is similar to a few other South American countries.
