The Injuns should be thanking us. When the settlers arrived, they were walking around in loin cloths, living in buckskin tents. Now look at them.....Free everything, health care, education, welfare on tap...casinos... Where do I sign up?

Not all Native Indians are lazy, drunk, high, whiney free loaders. There are those who work, some have very high ranked jobs, and are contributing members of society. They are even higher ranked than I was in the government civil service. The lazy messed up ones are just passing the blame for their own bad choices or refusal to choose anything in life. They chose to get intoxicated, drugged up and/or commit crimes and end up in prison, while others like them become judges, business people, artists, politicians, lawyers, police, teachers, government officials, athletes, nurses, mechanics, reporters, landlords, military, etc.
