(to C'mon Really)
It is not the truth that hurts me, what bothers me is the fact that you have the audacity to make comments about something you know nothing about. I am tired of people like you, whom I have probably covered in most of my previous comments; that make your little comments and hide behind your computer. When in fact you would get your little a** beat in a public forum for your bull**** comments.

You can't make these comments to the black folk any longer so you try to pick on us. Those days are over,(Chief, Squanto,) and all of your other racial profiling comments. You take advantage of our ancestors that calmed our people to not fight against your kind and do what the government says. We did it, we compromised, and we get your contempt. Not anymore. Go to hell on a shudder, and serve THIS country other than paying your bull**** taxes to go to more crooks than you deem us....

That is the truth your are programmed to not comprehend, so go along with the plan Einstein.

Rhonert Park, Upper Lake, Cloverdale and Ukiah are all starting Casino's the Hopland Tribe is done. Robinson, Coyote Valley and Konocti are finished as well. If Indian men were to actually work and pay their child support there would be no Indian poverty.

You obviously do not have a clue, there are many Indian Men working today, and fathering their children. I do not know if you are a step daddy, upset about your predicament; if so it is not fair for you to make that stereo type about Indian men.

Opinions about the Casino, are your opinions and I am not going to debate that, but you threw in a comment about all Indian Men. I am an Indian Man, and I find it insulting and have pity on you for your lack of knowledge and decency.

Would it be fair for me to say that (whatever race you are) do not have jobs and pay child support just because I see a few that don't?

There would be no Poverty total, if people like you would spend your energy on picking the right candidate to vote for and put in the right people in Congress and Senate that are really gonna do something for the people of the United States Population instead of lining their own pockets and protecting their own. Read the packets sent out via snail mail regarding candidate information and research their background. Don't just vote for who your clique has peer pressured you (group-think, status quo) into voting for.

Look at the big picture instead of your tunnel vision thinking. If your concerned about poverty, make an effort to do something about it as opposed to blaming Indians, we make up .5 - 1% of the population in the United States, so you are part of the problem, now be part of the solution.

The people they call the Pomo lived in Lake County anywhere from 12,000 to 20,000 years ,they were a very peaceful people , and they were here way before the ice age, so all the dummies out there that still think the 1st peoples came across on the ice bridge is what you call it ,well your teachers been lying to you all these years ...Read Dr. John Parkers report on the Elem peoples by Clearlake Oaks and other documents that are out there you just got to look,read forbidden archeology it says people been here 50 million years or more , believe it or not, I do , Our creation story says we were created here by Koot su and Maroonda since time began thats good enough for me KLEM hyu shuk

the soldiers in the 18oos' that rode horses and carried a sword and a couple of pistols ,and what ever he needed to fight those dangerous indians was about 146pounds and about 5'6'' Lil guys they kill little children with there big sword, Capt. Lions ,the murderer was one of those guys .Now they say they conquered us they had battles against us ,they would slam babies heads up against trees and rocks so not to waste bullets ,Army policy 1st dragoons and that was their battle.Put the people in their own round houses where they would dance and pray the soldiers would start a fire to the round house and if anybody came out they were shot. its time for healing the tribes ,teaching the children they are human beings and human beings respect each other Americans dont.

be a leader, not a follower, if one is concerned and has information, then share it. Otherwise remain silent and a hyprocrite...
