Our View: Jemez casino not a good fit in Anthony

Full story: Las Cruces Sun-News

Granting the Jemez Pueblo Indian Tribe a license to open a casino in Anthony, N.M. would go against what Indian gaming should be about - jobs for the tribe.

Who made you spokesman for the pueblo white dude?

No wonder your paper stands on its last legs with people like you at the helm. Casinos, have, and always will be amount the money!

Oh yea, in case you didnt know it, the fastest wat to new jobs is money.

How in the world did the white man ever defeat the Indians?

Hey Indianblood, at least the article was gramatically correct and the spelling was right which is more than I can say for you. Where did it say the white dude was speaking for the pueblo? His points are well taken. IGRA was not passed with the purpose of making Indians instant millionaires. The rest of us have rights too, and we don't want or need another casino in this area.

I haven't made up my mind about this casino, but I do know that Stan Fulton is holding NMSU and the State of NM hostage with his promise of millions if they roadblock any competition for his highly profitable enterprise. The threat of losing the endowment should NOT be a reason for this newspaper to be against the Jemez project. His tactics are wrong and the Sun News is playing right in to his greedy power play.

I don't see why there are not casinos anywhere in the state.

Remember when they were debating opening up NM to Indian casinos? Those opposed said that the State would be ruined within a couple of years. It did not happen.

Now, with the exception of Ruidoso, all the casinos are in the Albuquerque area - why can't we have them here, and why do they need to be on tribal lands?

I say, opent up the whole d4mned state to casino gambling, it couldn't hurt anything.

Oh, I seeeeee.... your rights extend now to other peoples property. Yea, I think we heard this about two hundred years ago.\

Get over it...we are a sovereign nation. What is proposed doesn't hurt anyone. Hey, if gambling is good enough for the State of NM it is good enough for an Indian Nation.

Then stay inside your sovereign nation. Anthony, NM is within ancestral Apache territory and if you're not Apache then you have no business in this area. And your comment about no one getting hurt--guess again you hurt the Mescalero and the Ft. Sill Apache who are truly Native to this land. The Jemez would never have dreamed about doing something like this when the Apache were free to roam the land but now you have the White Man to protect you.
