Joe Biden is "Charles Ingalls". Trump is, ... well, ... not ...

    Been catching up on episodes of 1970's series "Little House on the Prairie", which chronicles the experiences of a frontier family in the late 1800's. The series features the Ingalls family, consisting of father Charles Ingalls, his wife Caroline, and oldest daughters Mary, Laura, and Carrie.

    Charles Ingalls is portrayed as the classic American patriarch, who leads and provides for his family ... in all ways physical and spiritual. He embodies the epitome of the American qualities of hard-work, thrift, loyalty, generosity, and neighborliness.

    The thirteenth episode of the fourth season of the series begins with a sentry riding fast into Walnut Grove, the Ingalls home-town, warning that a contingent of American Indians (i.e. Native Americans) is on the way. When a small party of Indians arrive, they greet the townspeople, saying that they come in peace, ... and wish only to obtain the services of the town physician render care to a seriously ill tribe member (who turns out to be the chief).

    The Walnut Grove towns-people are divided as to their response to the matter. The Doc and Charles Ingalls are willing to go with the Indian party to their camp to tend to the ailing chief, while others in the town want nothing to do with the Indians.

    As the episode develops, Charles ultimately makes the decision to secretly house the ailing chief on their land, and finally determines to help protect his guests from the riled up towns-people.

    A link to the episode can be found below ...

    Are you trying to ruin a good American classic? Get your creepy political comparisons away from my favorite childhood shows.

    It was sad when Laura found out about the Indian mothers death. She reminds me of my youngest daughter, with that big heart.

    Watching that reminds me of fancy glass ash trays and TV Guide magazine... And bacon and eggs, I don’t know why.

    I didn't resist watching the whole thing. It was shows like this one that caused some of us to see history in a more realist way when it comes to the plight of the Native Americans.

    That show is nothing but sappy sentimentalism.
