"The pueblo and Peters have argued that the casino would help reduce high poverty in both Anthony and Jemez, by spurring economic development."
PLEASE, Casinos are the biggest ponzi/pyramid schemes around. They produce nothing of benefit; statistically they cause immense misery to 5% of every person that gambles, and the economic benefit comes at the expense of other communities that lose their population's income to gambling. It is time we quit thinking like a bunch of small individual communities and think like a nation.
I, for one, have witnessed the Indians become a scourge of our population as a nation. They are autonomous legal entities and act like that when it comes to screwing local merchants with unfair competition because of taxes, opening up and placing obnoxious business next to populations that oppose them with out regard for their feelings, and they blatantly hire based solely on race. Yet they are the first in line for Federal handouts.
I have stopped doing any business with them at all and have convinced many of my NM guests to by pass these corrupt tribes during their travels here.
I have urged our senators and legislators to enact laws the apply reciprocal hiring conditions but have been told that is unconstitutional. Hmmm something stinks here.

You're right, you should have that same "right." But first, we have to kill everyone in your family, everyone in your village then force you to live in an undeveloped area on meager pay in abject poverty for at least three generations.
But first the Indians must recompense the earlier people whom the brutally displaced. This argument is tired and how long does it go on? Hmmm, my father wasn't involved, nor his father nor his. Was yours? Oh by the way it is not like the brutality was solely one direction between the ancestors either. In fact my great great great great grandmother and here baby were murdered by Indians. Have you paid me yet? Yea and I want to open a casino too! Get out of town!

Yes Please stay away because I got enphezema from all the smoke at the casinos. If you dislike the smoke then dont get a job there. Because at least at the nite club its once in a while but a job at a casino they cant pay you enough for the health hazard.
No one forces anyone to work at nuclear waste plants either, but try to get hired there. The employment line is out of sight. Literally, it goes around the block.

I'm sorry mister, just because you can get hired doesn't mean
you have to actually take a job there.

I was in the US military (naval aircraft carriers) from 72 to 92 and no one needed to tell me that war is not healthy for fuzzy animals, property, and humans of any age.

Please stop trying to create willing victims who will willingly cash their work pay-check and likely return later to spend part of it there at the slots or the snack bar.

For every job there isn't, there are 2000 who want one.

I would not spend a penny there the way the economy
is, they still see people losing thier homes and
gas prices up in the sky and people without jobs,
I can't understand how people are going to survive
if they go to casinos. This is a messed up world
and some are trying to mess it up more by building
this so called casinos that only no good to the
poor who will get poorer if they go to this casinos.

What is lost on a majority of you is that no one is forced to go spend their money at a casino, at the race track, at wal mart, or any other business for profit. If you are poor... listen, this is important... STOP WASTING MONEY ON ENTERTAINMENT! I can't even begin to express the irritation I feel at seeing an empty flatscreen tv box in the trash in front of some sh**ty single wide trailer that looks like it might blow over in the next windstorm! And, how about that woman with eight kids using food stamps at the grocery store wearing apple bottom jeans and acrylic nails (by the way, she loaded the kiddos and the groceries into her brand new hummer)? The people who are sucessfull in life are not there because they happened to grow up in a casino-free neighborhood. They are sucessfull because they made wise choices about money, education, having children, and life in general. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN ACTIONS!!! And if the casino is so objectionable, then what other high revenue industry are you working to attract? Again, QUIT SQUABBLING AND DO SOMETHING GOOD FOR YOUR CRAPPY LITTLE CITY!

Sincamisa, why worry so much about the casino whether it opens or not. You wouldn't be allowed inside anyway since you don't have a shirt (sincamisa) Just go to the park, maybe even the zoo, I'm sure they will allow you to play there without a shirt.

I mean, what gives him the right to monopolize southern New Mexico? We need jobs in this area.
Stan Fulton is the owner of Sunland Park Racetrack and Casino. He is desperate to hold on to his monopoly in our area. Even to the point of intimidation. I think it is time he learn how to share. He has made billions for years now. Look how Sunland park has improved in the last 8 years.
