Let's ban casino's as we the citizens have concerns over how the Indians are hooking people into becoming addicted to gambling.

They claim they care yet weekly they mail out things luring people in with false hopes of winning big money.

There goes the retired persons Social Security money, there goes the pension and more.

What really shocked me was I went to eat at one of the casino's is how many old folks were wearing those oxygen things that go in your nose.

Guess they don't care if there is smoke that is killing them.

So one Tribe forbids the little kids a once a year enjoyment of trick or treating.

How nice can you be?

No make that how mean can leaders be to forbid kids to have fun?

So, they'll load the kids into the back of pickups, driven by drunk parents, and drive the 10 miles or so up to Jemez Springs to trick or treat. Yeah, that sounds real safe.

Did you know, "FOOP" is a common term used in radio transmissions to Albuquerque hospitals from ambulances bringing injured kids from reservations: Fell out of Pickup!
