What Do ‘Birthers’ and the Gov. of Greece have in Common?

They both willfully ignore the truth.  I don’t even want to get into these people who state that President Obama is not a U.S. citizen. Don’t they have anything better to do with their time?  It sounds like they don’t.

So how do they relate to the government of Greece?  The Greek government believes that Alexander the Great was Greek.  Are they serious???  The article in the San Francisco Chronicle doesn’t name names in the Greek government, but they really should.  Everyone should know that Alexander the Great was a Macedonian, from the Kingdom of Macedonia.  Greece apparently isn’t happy with Macedonia claiming Alexander as their own.  What they probably don’t like is that Alexander the Great conquered Greece—or I should say that his father Philip II (also King of Macedonia) conquered Greece.  So a conqueror comes in, takes Greece, and 2,300 years later, Alexander the Great is Alexander the Greek?  Give me a break (and give the Republic of Macedonia a break). 

History can’t be changed—it can only be revised and that is exactly what Greece and these ‘birthers’ are trying to do.

    Kevin, You know the old adage , but I offer this twist to it:Those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it. Those who know history and do not learn from it are simply doomed.

    Hey Wood, I like that phrase. Unfortunately the doom may also affect Macedonia, if Greece gets its way!
