The controversity is who did more to help Americans in their time period in history. Tubman helped about 100 African Americans escaped slavery via underground .

Actually, Tubman is credited with having escorted more than 300 slaves to freedom. And that's while she was poor and had a bounty on her head. Imagine what she could have accomplished had she had the backing of the US Army the way Jackson did! BTW, American Indians, who Jackson was also fighting to kick them off their own land, don't have British accents.

Not sure about the elementary language used, did not see that post. Sometimes the moderators will “bleep” the colorful words, or sometimes give a warning without banishment, hope that is what occurred. We do have to watch what we say. But, you are not the first to want to use some “colorful descriptive” language in a post!

Anyway, keep posting!

I would like to send my apologies to those who I offended with an earlier post on this particular thread.

 

I personally find that type of talk of elementary language skills, but felt it was necessary to get my point accross.  I am sorry to stoop that level and may now be banned from posting. But, my lesson learned...again!

 

"Divided We Stand, United We Fall"....  "When Love and Hate Collide"....two quotes I will ponder.

Maybe she wants a cut from their casino businesses. As far as Jackson-Didn`t he save 3  southern states from being capture by the British in the war of     1812?   The Dems are wanting to replace his image on the  $20 bill for a woman(Tubman) who no one ever heard of.


You know, the bloodlines of those throwing fits over the removal of confederate traitor statues are every bit as watered down as Warren's - generations removed does that, ya know - but every time a statue is removed, those descendants protest as if they just died last week, and run people over with cars. Bit of a double standard there. Actually a HUGE double standard. White man claims it, that's alright. But claim Native American ancestry, and it's cause for insults and racism.

 

We can also thank Jackson for the Trail of Tears, and for squashing anti-slavery petitions in the 1830s. Not only did he hate Native Americans, he hated black people, too. It was proposed in April 2016 that Tubman would be on the front of the $20 bill and Jackson would be on the back. You mean you had never heard of Harriet Tubman until April 2016?? That explains a lot.

Weren’t they also respected Veterans?

If Warren’s heritage is so important to you, isn’t pence’s support of “anti gay” therapy worth looking into?

I still think pence was staring!
