Pine Ridge: Unemployment 80%, Life Expectancy 50; Candidates Mostly Quiet

Jan 11, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: KELO-TV Sioux Falls

Conditions on the reservation are tough. More than 80% unemployment. A desperate shortage of housing a ' on average, more than 15 people live in each home and others get by in cars and trailers.

The reservation system creates this type stuff.

Yes there is unemployment but any of us can leave and seek work anywhere in the USA. We are not held captive on the reservation.

The reservation system provided a welfare life style and ways to just get by without leaving. Its easy to just stay home and get by.

When anyone lays around on goverment handouts but has a lots of time and a little money booze becomes a problem. Is it ever a problem.

In my humble opinion everyone who is able should have to preform some work in order to get any goverment or tribal assistance. The free ride should at least end to the point where people have nothing to do but set around and get into trouble.

I believe many of my brothers and sisters would not work a steady job if one fell out of the sky. They would show up for a few days get a check and never show back up until the money run out.

Only we can make the changes. No use blaming anyone else.

And from my point of view, they dont have money in their pockets.
you could talk about the reservation all you want about welfare and government, but your words are still false.

When one has a WiFi connection, they can connect to ANYONE whose line is available. That dead piece of WHITE TRASH says the same thing under different names.

The so called "wizard" of the internet should know that WiFi connections have an access point (or hotspot) that has a range of about 20 meters (65 feet) indoors and a greater range outdoors.

Hotspot coverage can comprise an area as small as a single room with walls that block radio waves or as large as a few square miles.

It does not connect from town to town.

Internet stupidity is hard to fix. Remain stupid if you wish I really don't care but why try to make others believe your stupidity?

Try again dingbat but at least make some sense or know what you are talking about.

What's the matter are you done trashing the Native American Brother?

Why don't you post up your website and try to con the people out of something for your benefit?

Whether I am one or a hundred different screen names you are still the same dumb witch with a nasty mouth who trys to intimidate everyone who disagrees with you.

But you don't scare me so post away.

When I'm around you don't get a free ride with your trash.

Gee you sure have a problem when you go nuts. I wonder how you would like it if someone talked the same way you do about Native Americans?

But don't worry I find it fun to see you fly into a rage because you are being made a fool out of.

Just remember if you bring your lies to this forum you don't get a free pass when Fred is around.

Fred don't have to cuss or act stupid or use racist remarks, he uses good old intelligence to make a fool out of you.

You need a KOTEX and/or a TAMPON in the worse way. You are so queer. How long does your period last? Seems like you are ALWAYS on your period.

You are a odd duck. Why do you think that buying Kotex, Tampons and feminine wipes at Walgreens is some big insult?

You not I claims to be a woman and it seems odd that you would use that stuff as some crazy attempt to think you are insulting me.

I have more respect for women for having to go through their monthly cycles than to make fun of them or use it as a insult.

I respect women who are women and act like women.

Your sillyness is only an insult to you as a woman.

Yet, based upon your past on this board whenever someone pushes you into a corner you start puking up insults based around women.

Is all that something nasty to you? To me women are not nasty things to make fun of.

Is it because you are ashamed of your own body or looks?

Something is without question wrong with you.

Just a suggestion: Try putting a tampon in your mouth!

Word of advice: You're NOT a REAL woman. ACTING like a woman on her period 24/7 doesn't count.
