If It Ain't Broke Don't Fix It !

Found this quote today .......

AN old Indian chief sat in his hut on the reservation, smoking a ceremonial pipe eyeing two US government officials sent to interview him. "Chief Two Eagles," asked one official, "you have observed the white man for 90 years. You've seen his wars and his material wealth. You've seen his progress, and the damage he's done."
The chief nodded. "Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?" The chief stared at the officials and calmly replied: "When white man found the land, Indians were running it. No taxes, no debt, plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, women did all work. "Medicine man treat patient free. Indian man spend all day hunting and fishing, and all night making love. Then the chief leaned back and smiled. "White man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that."
