Maybe the Indians should get together with the Sunrise city commission and their follies. Seems like the two entities like big growth and spending money without answering to the people.

I was just forced to move from Palma Nova. I Paid $15000 six years ago and was given $2750. The emphasis on forced!

And yes Sam try the history books. My dad always told me to believe half of what you read and half of what you hear, but for God sakes try to use your head not someone elseís.

And please don't respond to this until you get the facts.

I was born here I was right in the middle of it, and I learned about the Seminoles through the history books.

For the rest of you why don't the Cubans go back to Cuba, The Haitians, and so on.

I'm sure that some of you would try to shoot the Bahamians if the told you to get off their land too!

GOD HOW I HATE PREJUDICE IDIOTS!!

You call someone a prejudice idiot because they challenge what you think and what you were told? Hate is a pretty strong word especially for someone who is accusing others of being prejudice. History books are wrong all the time. It's been proven that the indians were not here first anyway. They will deny that of coarse. Their land is owned by the US Federal Government so it is in the united states. They are wards of the united states.

Obviously you can't tell the difference between a history book and a law book.
Here's a hint. A history book gives you someone's version of what happened; fiction. A law book tells you what MUST happen; fact.
Perhaps you should use someone elses head, yours isn't serving you too well regardless of where you were born.

Hey Sam,

Talk to someone, will you.

The LAW you are spouting about is Florida Law and has no bearing on the Bahamas, Cuba, or the UK because they are not a State in the USA and neither is the Seminole Indian Reservation. Stop commenting because you do not know what the Hell you are talking about.

Neither The State of Florida nor the US Laws have any Jurisdiction on Seminole Land!!!! And thatís the LAW.

When they occupy land that they don't own (not Seminole land, get it?), but have been granted USE of by the state, they ARE subject to the state laws affecting that land.
Now try to forget about the Bahamas or the UK or Oz, they're just not relevant; really.

So I guess by your own assestment the USA still does not have claim to any land west of the Mississippi. GET IT!!!!

Talk about narrow minded. You have a need to throw a nation off there own land (annex or otherwise it is still THEIR land), and the other idiots think that we should finish what Andrew Jackson couldn't (by force if necessary).

And thst is the end of this BS. Why don't you get a job with FOX Network they love people like you.

Isn't it funny that the indians tribes love to remind everyone that they are sovereign but they had no problem asking for over 6 billion dollars from the stimulus package. They were given 4.2 billion.

Long time player of 16 years was just banned today for life?
Why.well there are incredible things taking place with players who patron these casinos. Unfortunately its like fighting the mafia.
However, the FBI has a special division set up just for Seminole. Interesting. I wonder just how many palyers who found out to much were banned?

We as americans have been living on indian land without paying any rent for hundreds of years.We relocated them (at gunpoint) and killed them when they protested.Now we must pay! Who pays tens of thousands for a glorified storage shed? The same people who think that the prime real estate under them will never be sold? The american dream is to OWN the land...not just what sits on top of it.

The American dream is the Anglo saxon dream, based on John Locke's ideas about property, which were used to disposes and forcibly remove Indians from their ancestral homelands. How can you own something that was never yours to take, nor anybody's to give away?

Say what you want about casinos, personally I dont care for them. But the idea that anglo saxon values are self evidently laws which govern all human conduct, is at the root of an ideology that has been used to oppress and murder millions worldwide.

If Seminoles want land abutting their reservation to build homes for 200 seminole families they have lots of available land nearby. If Federal authorities could go onto their reservation in Hollywood and see the amount of vacant and derelict buildings where homes could be built. Also its well known that they have purchased all lots south of the park right up to Sheridan street. i,e (car dealership, storage building , and stripmall). Also Stirling rd mobile home park . All this available land should be developed to build homes for Seminoles . This would be better than what they are proposing right now . If elected officals would do their job i,m sure they could come to a better way of resolving this issue than throwing 1700 people out in the street .

I know the Chief of Police for the tribe, and he was a Hollywood PD decorated officer....do you have any proof of corruption, or just farting around?
