All the Navajo businessmen are at the "Flea Market," what the hell is the RBDO doing and what it its purpose. Get rid of the government's power. How many new Navajo owned businesses have they started or how many Navajo owned businesses have the destroyed? or won't help to get started? Is RBDO only interested in RBDO?

We showed them Russians alright! Of how not to run businesses. They probably laughed all the way back to Russia.

Did they see how Navajo Businesses are run by Navajo Businessmen and women at the "Flea Market?"

you complain out 'handouts' being given out to the Navajos, yet you and other "Armchair Economists" are critical of a Navajo Tribal individuals TRYING to sell or perform business to make some dollars than to RELY on the Navajo Tribal Government or the Barack Obama Federal Government.
As i Understand, you pay the flea market booth fee and set up you truck and sell your junk! Then you'll be the only 'speck' in the large crowd....such a distinction!
Heck, you could be make the 'honorary' tribal member and get cup of coffee and a kick in the a...butt.

It looks to me that the RBDO is only keeping the Navajo businesspersons in the undesirable locations (Flea Market) and giving the best locations to larger businesses like for example: McDonalds, Taco Bell, Giant, Shell, and New Laundromat. Isn't the RBDO supposed to help the Navajos start their business instead it seems like they put the Navajos who want to start their own businesses on the backburner. Or are they (RBDO) only interested in giving up better locations to larger corporations who have money to shovel off to Window Rock? Thats just how it looks to me!

Exactly how many businesses are 100% or wholly owned by Navajo's in Shiprock? Flea Market, Buck's, and Kirk's Center might be owned by Navajos? And I wonder how much they pay (rents, taxes etc.) to Window Rock compared to the larger corporations?

Navajo Government oppressing it's own? Discriminating against the young who do not speak Navajo very well. What will happen when these old farts get to old and then who will be changing their diapers? They had better start recognizing the younger smarter generation and treat them like Dine'. Peace! See you in the rest homes.

So are the Russians going to come back? Are they going to throw mountains of cash at the Navajo Nation for businesses or are they laughing their behinds off after they saw the circus that the Navajo Nation Government was running?

I think the person said the educated smarter Navajos. The two that got caught were probably current officials?
