I've been a casino employee for 17 years. I can tell you that they are BAD! In the beginning, sure, they will treat employees and players alike, like kings and queens. But, after some time, they will gradually put the pressure on you. In the beginning, they will say, "We are not here to service gambling addicts, and we will contribute to having a gamblers anonymous hotline". But then gradually over time, they begin to take away comps from players and slowly begin to take away benefits from employees. BUT, it is the players who play for comps who play for entertainment; the players who play to lose and don't mind not receiving comps are the ones who are addicted!! So, these become the ones they prefer to service! Casinos ARE bad!

To the anti cansino people of buffalo and the buffalo news., I am a seneca native who fought then and still disagree,s now, It's been almost ten years since the political seneca party managed to swindle thier way to get what they wanted and still argue over the millions of dollars and control over these cansino's. Let it be known that some other's including myself still have no running water or sewage for the shacks we live in. I hope some you realize that it's not what you think, that all of us benifit from these casino's. We have some of the worst and the most selfish people in this nation., And at the same time we've become survivior's and still respect the fact that we try to be proud of who we are without having to get the american public drunk and steal thier money. Gambling is really against the true indian way. Iam sorry for my people on both sides. Yours truly a die hard in the mist of all thier should,nt be. I'am open for a commercial on TV, take care.

Hey you forgot to tell them you don't ever cash your annuity check, I'll bet, which in turn could be used to put water in your shack. One check is all it would take. Your choice. No water but a computer with internet though huh? Nice. We all have our priorities I guess. Are you an elder?

Yes Iam an elder and for your information I'am on a friends computer and the annunity barely covers living expenses but it,s better than nothing and I"ve tried to get the nation to help but because I disagreed with casino's Iam not a favorite it,s pretty tough right?

Then you are also getting more than annuity being you are an elder. What I find amazing is that you were so anti-casino yet have no problem cashing those checks that are derived from the casinos and are in fact living on them. Imagine where you would be without those checks if you and those like minded as yourself had prevailed and there were no casinos. I know water and sewage installed is less than one annuity so bite the bullet and just get it in. Being your an elder they may do it for free even. How many councils have you been to and brought this up? Any?

Again man you must be stupid Annuity,s don,t come from the casino, never did never will, they came long before casino,s were ever dremped of. And for also what you dont know? I'am not quite sixty and as far as council goes I can,t stand a swine fest As for you? You ought to grow up and study history before you act so smart and run your trap. it's people like you who know no respect for anything much less your kids if your lucky to have any.

I tried to help you and tell you how to go about getting water and sewage for your shack and now you wanna call me stupid. It's obvious you have no idea whatsoever where the annuities come from let alone how to even get water and sewage to a shack. You talk about respect when you are the one that dug the hole you're in yourself and want to blame others for your own problems. So o wise one do tell where it is YOU think annuities come from. I go to meetings and am well aware where they come from but I would like to hear it from you where the Nation gets this large amount of money to give us every year. I need a better laugh than a guy that gets $15k+ free and clear a year on top of SSI and whatever else and can't seem to get his shit together to get water and sewage for his poor lil shack.

.....Even I, a Non Native, know that the annuities do NOT come from the casinos. Why are you spreading such false information? Don't try to say you go to meetings that imply this, either you are making that up, the people there are mis-informed or you need a hearing aid.

Wel'll just like I inform the rest of the world, The dummies form dummy land have dummied up again. To answer to your question where the annuity,s come from here it is. Have some of you ever heard of Easement royalty's, treaty,s Tenneco gas company, and other utility's that cross our lands. And not what the Seneca nation would want you to believe, the Casino,s. the annunity's started in the early 70,s that was long before we started stealing white people,s money with casino,s. Oh and another thing? We'll if the dummies come out when they hear there's a project in the making to make a movie about the seneca civil war of 95-96 which I'am proud to participate in, bececause I was there. Let's see of the dummies come out now?

Citizens for a better buffalo huh, well it seems to me that your group is small in numbers and in no way represents how I nor how many others feel, so how about changing your name to something that represents your small numbers. Go spend the money you are getting on something worthwhile, like feeding the homeless or dressing kids for winter that cant afford it. Quit lining the pockets of attorneys and yourselves and do something that is worthwhile. The casino is there, and you know what contrary to what you think, I truly believe it will be there for a long time to come. If people want to go there it's their business, not yours.
Absolutely right! Those people are too stubborn and stupid to see that the only winner is going to be the blood-sucking attorneys who are leading them to believe they can prevail.
