The next fantastic crisis (story)!

Fantastic_ (from Merriam/Webster)_a : based on fantasy : not real b : conceived or seemingly conceived by unrestrained fancy c : so extreme as to challenge belief : unbelievable; broadly: exceedingly large or great/ 2. marked by extravagant fancy or extreme individuality./3. excellent, superlative.

I’m going with “a”

“Breaking story” now being pushed by the LP (lib-prog) media, is that Presbo traces his ancestry to the very first slave in America.  According to a genealogy company in Provo, Utah, Ancestory.com, who is either being used as a shill to push sensationalistic headlines or else has figured out a ducedly clever way to advertise their business, “while lacking definitive proof, said it had evidence that “strongly suggests” Mr. Obama’s family tree — on his mother’s side — stretches back nearly four centuries to a slave in colonial Virginia named John Punch.” -per the New York Times (part of the LP media).

I have evidence that strongly suggests that I may be the rightful king of France, but I have no proof, definitely.

The person that they were tracing was a Mr. Punch, an indentured servant, who escaped along with 2 white servants and the was caught and sentenced to lifetime servitude.  The article made much of the fact that he received a harsher sentence than the white servants.  Curious, in the absence of pictures and records was the unstated assumption that as a non-white, this man was African.  Given the lousy documentation of  the time, and ignoring the obvious question as to how an African male would have been signing up to be an indentured servant in 1640, the article totally ignored the very real possibility that this Mr. Punch could have been an Irishman.  At the time, the Irish were generously lumped in with everyone else as being non-white.  Of course, who ever heard of an Irishman named Punch?

Presbo’s claimed daddy’s ancestors, mostly arab, but also Luo tribesman on the west African coast, were all slavers who captured their countrymen and sold them.  Presbo’s mama’s ancestors, the English, were the main customers for the 4% that ended up in America. (You thought we invented it?)  A number of free Africans also bought slaves, but their ancestry is not specific.  We didn’t invent slavery, and after sacrificing over 300.000 American lives, we managed to end the legal version of it here and then joined the English with stamping out legal slaving over much of the world.  (Ending slavery was not the goal of the civil war, just a convenient excuse for ending federalism here and a useful byproduct).  For all our efforts, there is now more slave trade going on in other countries than we had in all of the US for our entire history.

So in all likelihood, Presbo owes himself reparations, which he should be made to pay, just as soon as he finishes paying the reparations that he owes for enslaving our children to the government with a crushing debt.

    I go with A too. What a bunch of BS.

    My lineage was either king of France or alcoholic military deserter and thief, both of whom were staunch advocates of copious infidelity. No definite proof either way. But as long as there’s no proof, I decided on the former.

    Me thinks you only have half the story here, Drrik. The Resident’s father’s ancestory can be traced back to the Barbary pirates, you know.
