Meetings to discuss Navajo Water Rights Settlement

Full story: Farmington Daily Times

The project will cost more than $1 billion and divert hundreds of thousands of acre-feet of water from the San Juan River, and two groups are accusing each other of spreading misinformation.

Man, what next! Once again the Navajo Nation has been belittled and ripped OFF. Yes they came cordially (the NM government, lobbyists, corporations, special interest groups, land barons, foreign corporations, foreign governments, billionairs in pocket of NM agencies), negotiated, told complex written language in briefs, bribe NN water attorney (John Leeper) and put a permanent $$$$ account for him and others in its Swiss Bank that sustains his family and family offsprings and those cutting the deal forever. This deal is worth trillion by 2030, by corporate empire (no, Navajo Nation is lefted out). Now NN is a junior user under the control of the State of New Mexico. You dumb Navajos that voted for Joe Shirley Jr. and now Dumb Ben Shelly are so diighiz, diizhis danoli. What stupid people are you acting like an ape, a dumb gorilla, a dump crazy people

I acknowledge former Senator Leonard Tsosie and Representative Ray Begaye for opposing the finality of this agreement between the Navajo Nation and the State of New Mexico. I know that President Joe Shirley, Jr and Vice-President Ben Shelly supported the Navajo Nation Water Settlment agreement. The NNDOJ John Leeper was the go-between in negotiating the complexity of the agreement. What was concerning on these NM Legislator gentlement was how quick this was moving and dd not include appropriate studies or hearing. Representative Begaye once said, "...this is moving so fast that the Navajo traditional people are so removed from such a negotiation, thus frauduantly moving towards a collision." President Shirley went on ahead and signed the agreement. This forever losed NN people water rights against huge corporations. Who benefited from this agreement - Salt RIver Project Corp & other Corps making over $300 billion internationaly.

This will just be another example of the Navajo's wasting another resource. Nepotism will be the employment requirement, incompetence will be the business plan, and crying they weren't given a bigger handout will be the result. Navajo's have a major problem with racial discrimation: They have put their race above intelligence. Any time someone within the tribe points at "what they call an injustice" the tribe rallies arround the tribe offender - regardless of right or wrong.

The first sentence talks about mis-information, however this article is ripe with mistakes. The new pipeline project will carry tens of thousands of acre-feet NOT 600,000 acre-feet. The Daily-Times should run a retraction!!
