"The current interpretation by those who advocate that the feature on
the rock is a human figure is that it commemorates a fallen member of
the party of Henry Sinclair, a Scottish Earl whom some believe to have
made a voyage to the New World in 1398, "
This is the earliest solid evidence of Europeans in North America:
"Workshops were identified as an iron smithy containing a forge and
iron slag, "
"Food remains included butternuts, which are significant because they
do not grow naturally north of New Brunswick, "
Or maybe they once grew further north in the warmer climate?
"This area is no longer rich in game due in large part to the harsh
climate that plagues the region for a lot of the year."

The Mayflower dod not land until 1620 about the time the first French

the UP in 1763 after the F&I war.
The United States is not Europe and what works for Europe will not
necessarily work for The United States. It's the same story for my
Australian cousins, a European transportation system would not be
suitable Down Under. ^_^
But that comment again demonstrates how provincial harry's mindset is.
Obviously what works around him has to work just as well ALL OVER the world
It's a holdover from the times when Euros imagined they controlled and were
superior to the rest of the world
IDEALLY, replacement fuel sources for vehicles will be a variety of
options, electric, bio fuel from vegetable waste NOT FOOD, CNG, algea
grown in coal plants exhaust,, perhaps methyl alcohol directly from
Having a variety of power sources would create competition.
all the oil the world will ever has is already here. But given the
acceleration in crude oil use we cant drill baby drill, we will just
run out... someday there may be a more important use for crude oil
more important than gasoline.....
and the USA iimports a billion dollars a day in crude, thats all money
taken out of our economy to enrich others who hate us...
Chine will likely export brand new cheap battery vehicles to the US,
quality will be marginal but the low price will create a line at the
Right now a terrorist attack on the global oil infrastructure could
cripple our economy. that should of been fixed in 1972.....
Battery vehicles arent all the same, the leaf has no gasoline backup
The volt can run either.
A small micro sized trailer with built in wiring when the vehicle is
new is good for leaf type vehicles, and unneeded for volt type
The US has never started a world war, but you have two under your
belts. Does: "The sun will never set on the British Empire!" ring any
bells in your tiny belfry? How about your slave trade, where you limeys
brought slaves to your southern plantations, then left us to deal with
the problems when we kicked your syphilis infected carcasses out in that
little spat where a handful of farm boys kicked the shit out of "The
best army in the world"?
You don't know your history.
We were having a problem with the French.
When we sorted them out we came back and burned down the white house
and chase you across America.
The US started a war with Japan. You cut off their oil resources.
The US armed forces have never won a war since WW2.
Various forms of gooks beat them all round the world regardless of all
Oh, sorry, you won in Greneda.
And we have started many "world" wars, all against tyrants.
The US starts wars mainly in order to steal the resources of
countries. On a few other occasions because you have crazy presidents.
The White House? You don't know the difference between the
Rvolutinary War & the War of 1812. Only cowards, likethe British burn
buildings when they occupy a city.
Sure we did. After they bombed Pearl Harbor.
Yawn... What has England won?
After England lost them as a colony in 1974, and it really stuck in
The US also had:
Organization of American States
Antigua and Barbuda
Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
as allies against:
People's Revolutionary Government of Grenada
Soviet Union (advisory)
You have a long history of being greedy, bloodthirsty fools who start
wars for no reason, and you lost many of them. Then you needed our help
in both World Wars.

We did cut off their steel imports...after they brutalized China and
performed the Rape of Nanking.
They wanted the US out of the Pacific..they wanted total control of
the Pacific. We disagreed.
The rest is history.
Despite what the Leftwingers want to believe.
