what did the cherokee contribute to modern day society?

Syringes, rootbeer, rubberized clothing, beef jerky, and many of the tenets of the United States Constitution. Food staples (corn, beans, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and squash).

The Cherokee and those they descended from were on this continent for thousands of years before the white man set foot on it. Stories, legends and culture were passed down orally, but Sequoya developed a form of Cheorkee writing which allowed that lore and information to be transferred from those that held it (Medicine men, or Shamans) such as A`yûn'inï or "Swimmer, Gatigwanasti, Gahuni, and Inâ'lï, or "Black Fox" , into English.

The Cherokee used herbs for healing. An astonishing number have proved to be valuable in modern pharmacology. Many modern drugs have active ingredients based on these herbs that were chemically synthesized. More than two hundred drugs are derived from their healing remedies. Beginning in 1993, the National Institute of Health recognized the importance and use of herbal medicine as a treatment for certain types of illnesses.

Jack C. Montgomery, a Cherokee from Oklahoma, and a First Lieutenant with the 45th Infantry Division Thunderbirds, on 22 February 1944, near Padiglione, Italy, Montgomery's rifle platoon was under fire by three echelons of enemy forces, when he single-handedly attacked all three positions, taking prisoners in the process. For this he won the Medal of Honor. Charles George, a Cherokee from North Carolina, and Private First Class in Korea when he was killed on 30 November 1952. During the battle, George threw himself upon a grenade and smothered it with his body. In doing so, he sacrificed his own life but saved the lives of his comrades. George was posthumously award the Medal of Honor in 1954.

Will Rogers aka "The Cherokee Kid" is an American legend. He’s famous for saying “I never met a man I didn’t like". The outpouring of national grief over Rogers's passing is generally regarded to be the greatest show of national mourning since the death of Lincoln.

Where is this beef jerky hiding?

Where is this beef jerky hiding?

I can't find it on line anywhere.

They may have changed their name a long time ago and never made it onto the internet.

Check in some of the local stores in Ohio. Maybe it is still being sold there locally.

If your Unemployment Benefits ran out on Christmas Day which Grinch do you blame?

If your Unemployment Benefits ran out on Christmas Day which Grinch do you blame?

Start at the beginning. I would blame teacher's unions in the public school systems all over America for turning out dumbed down, propaganda filled, lemmings; who voted for a national disgrace. The triumvirate of disaster: Obama Reed and Pelosi. The 3 real life Grinches who stole Christmas from over 2,500,000 people.

New true words to an old favorite. Dedicated by me to the Non fictional Grinch ~

You're a mean one Obama

You really are a heel

You’re as cuddly as a cactus

You're as charming as an eel

Obama

You’re a bad banana with a greasy black peel

You're a monster Obama

Your Hearts an empty hole

Your brain is full of spiders

You’ve got garlic in your soul Obama

I wouldn’t touch you with a

39 and a half Foot pole

You’re a vile one Obama

You have termites in your smile

You have all the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile

Obama

Given the choice between the two of you

I’d take the a seasick crocodile

You’re a foul one Obama

You’re a nasty wasty skunk

Your heart is full of unwashed socks,

Your soul is full of gunk

Obama

The 3 words that best describe you, are as follows, and I quote

Stink, Stank, Stonk

You’re a rotter Obama

You’re the king of sinful sots

Your hearts a dead tomato splotched with moldy purple spots

Oabma

Your sole is an appalling dump heap

Overflowing with the most disgraceful

Assortment of deplorable rubbish

Imaginable, mangled up in tangled up knots

You nauseate me, Obama

With a nauseous super naus

You’re a crooked jerky jockey and,

you drive a crooked horse

Obama

You’re a 3 Decker sour kraut and toad stool sandwich

With arsenic sauce
