Typical comments from you bleeding heart liberals. Their leaders are lazy and shiftless. No they didn't learn it from us. They were here first, right?

How about the Navajo president who landed at an airport in N.W. N.M. in the Tribal turboprop, with only his family on board ( plus pilots and one bodyguard). They'd been to Las Vegas on "business", at tribal expense of course. That means we paid for it. How many of their tribal members could have used the money they blew on that little family outing to Vegas?

But, hey, they need more money for the tribe.

Hurry up and close your borders. We can do the same knothead.

Like I said, corrupt.

An Indian leader from southern N.M. once said, at a tribal meeting, " I respect the man that steals the most." As I said, it's a way of life.

I saw them leave preschoolers outdoors in blizzards, starve animals, send elem kids to school without shoes or coats in the winter because they'd pawned them for a dollar to buy cheap wine, and you bet, we do it too. Does that excuse them or us? Nope.

Apparently quite a few people have problems with reading comprehension and/ or your listening skills are pitifully inadequate. The story is about an ďallegationĒ, not a fact. Since KOB didnít print the entire report from last night, I guess those didnít hear the entire story where the judgeís concerns are jurisdictional issues, not racial.
Is it that most people that donít live on the reservations have no idea that many police officers on & off the reservations are Native and do make their share of DWI arrests? But hey, thanks for living up to my expectations of jumping to conclusions without knowing the full story.
As for getting rid of the reservations Iím not surprised that those comments come up. Itís not like the government doesnít have a long sordid history of & breaking Treaties or allowing non-Natives to not abide by the terms of those Treaties.
Regarding how reservations are rife with nepotism, embezzlement, fraud, forgery cover ups because it's a way of life, I guess that NEVER EVER happens off the reservations or with non-Natives. No, THAT could't be true could it. Puh-lease, gimme a break & keep your false negative stereotypes to yourself.
As for blocking the entrances to the reservations, go ahead. Albuquerque has reservations to the north, south & west. The only way to get in & out of Albuquerque would by through I-40 to Tijeras and no traffic via I-25. So have fun going to & from work if you live or work in Los Lunas, Belen, Bernalillo, Santa Fe, Gallup, etc, not to mention bringing having to re-route all traffic around the state, but go ahead.
Well said!
