All about who’s First!

Found near San Diego:

In a paper published today in Nature, researchers describe broken bones of a mastodon (an extinct relative of elephants) and battered rocks from a site in southern California. The team argues the remains demonstrate humans were in the Americas 130,000 years ago, in the early late Pleistocene epoch. If they are right, the find could call into question the long-held assumption that H. sapiens was the first and only member of the human family to reach the New World, because it hails from a time when multiple human species, including the Neandertals, roamed the planet.

waiddaminnit…. I’m cornfuzzed… again…

The First People / Indians get all sortsa respect, deference, and approbation simply cuz they came to this land first.

We honkies immigrated here second, so we’re called “land stealers” and deserve only disapprobation and certainly no deference.

But the same people are telling me that all the new immigrants deserve …wait for it … all sortsa respect, deference, and veneration. and free stuff. BTNIN

So approbation skips a wave?

Well, if this 130,000 year old discovery proves to be the case, everyone just switched a position. Wonder what that will mean?

But 130,000 years ago during the last interglacial period it was a meandering stream in a flood plain near the coastline. Camels, dire wolves and capybara roamed there. “It was a very nice place to live,”

It still is.

    Does this “First People evidence” really matter when American culture is being attacked and under threat of being destroyed by Progressive Liberals?

    So what you’re saying is that early American Indians committed genocide against peaceful, nature-loving, Neanderthals?
    The dastards!
    Truthfully I’m more depressed by the fact that they felt they had to explain what a ‘mastodon’ was.

    A nice place to live, if you could afford it, even back then.
    Heck, it clearly cost Mastodons an arm an’ a leg.
    sorry…

    Now, let’s talk about Mexican claims over the southwest US.
    Or the previous Navajo, Hopi, Apache, etc. who replaced the Anasazi, etc. etc.
    On second thought, no. That way lies madness.

    Since there were about several waves of immigration from Siberia into the America’s which wave of invaders gets to claim real native american status? Unfortunately for the first wave the other waves of Siberian immigration probably wiped out the first wave of immigrants or forced them to move further south.

    “Indians get all sortsa respect, deference, and approbation simply cuz” they’re people of color.
    “All the new immigrants deserve all sortsa respect, deference, and veneration, and free stuff” because they’re people of color.
    Honkies aren’t people of color, so …

    If the land bridge were in New York it would be a toll bridge.

    Who was here first?
    Yes.
    I mean the tribe’s name.
    Who.
    The ones that settle the Americas first.
    Who.
    The first settlers.
    Who.
    etc.

    Of course if you’d've ask them back then,
    they’d've said, “We’re the Fugawi.”

    ^ Y’mean y’might be descended from ancient Ainu who were on a three-hour tour from Hokkaido or the Kurils and got lost at sea when the weather started getting rough, their tiny ship got tossed?

    Well, if the Corps of Engineers could bury all traces of Kennewick Man (thanks to feather-not-dot Indian lobbying of spineless pols), then eliminating some old heffalump bones should be easy.

    F-Troop already told us who the the first tribe was: the Hekowie.

    When they got here one of them said, “Where the heckowie?”
