    An old Indian chief sat in his hut on the reservation, smoking a ceremonial
    pipe and 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 that it was so.

    The official continued, "Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?"

    The chief stared at the government officials for over a minute and then calmly replied,
    "When white man found the land, Indians were running it.
    No taxes, no debt, plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, women did all the work,
    medicine man free, Indian man spent all day hunting and fishing, all night having sex."

    Then the chief leaned back and smiled, "White man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that!"
