    Every President elected in a year that ends with a zero. since 1840, has been assassinated, or died in office, or has survived serious attempt to kill them.

    Until now. Now, instead, George W Bush is killing America.

    The idea is that Tecumseh, who was defeated in battle by Wm. Henry Harrison, laid the curse.
    So yeah ... native American, or Amerindian, as Nick says.

    Here is a Cherokee curse. Hairy canadian man who wears red dress will cause butt pain. Well, unless you are part Cherokee. Then, it only applies to others.

    Do they have to die in the term that had a zero?

    Or just before leaving office?

    I'm just saying we still have 3 and a half months to make good on the curse!

    C'mon America! You can DO it!

    What president ever elected in a zero year deserved it more?

    Before leaving office.
    Lincoln was first elected in 1860 and was assassinated in his second term.
    FDR was re-elected in 1940 and died just after starting his fourth term.
    They had to win an election in a year divisible by 20.
    (Not just a zero year. 1990, for example, wouldn't cut it. But 1980 and 2000 in principle would. And Reagan, the 1980 victor, was almost assassinated, while Bush, victor in 2000, looks good to finish his term.)

    LOL. you know, most native americans laugh when people say "i'm part cherokee, you see my great great great grandma was cherokee." we think "so you're pretty much not native american then :wink:"

    i just think it's funny how people act as if they know things about the culture. every tribe is different. but i will tell you that you more than likely have no idea what you're talking about unless you're native american and are knowledgeable about your tribe. native americans don't like to share things with others outside of the tribe unless it's other tribes. that's why the languages aren't common. you can't just learn anything about native americans from a book. the only way you will learn is if you learn from someone in the tribe, but even then, it's unlikely.

    i will say that there is such a thing as a medicine man...some are good and some are bad.

    I AM Cherokee and have a card to prove it!! :biggrin1:

    I say the 5 Indian nations ought to call in the note, bankrupt the entire country before our illustrious president does, and take ALL our land back!! :tongue:

    And Nay-Nay is right.
