Yeah...a Indian Casino right next to the Court House, right next to the hospital, right next to continuing care, that's a brilliant idea, a good place to build....NOT....! 29 Palms told the Indians to get lost, now it's time for Joshua Tree Citizens to tell the Indians to hunt for another city to build their Casino on... our tiny community is well suited for Citizens who love the peace and beauty the desert offers, and the high quality services of Joshua Tree's medical institutions, by the way how many real Indians are in the tribe...? does the tribe consist of just nine members who are being edged on by a money hungry lawyer group...? the casino would destroy Joshua Tree by attracting recently released low life's from San Bernadino County Jails, no offence to the Indian Tribe, but as a citizen of the morongo basin I say No to the proposed Indian Casino, go search for another location away from Joshua Tree.
Fun place
