Does that mean the white man gave me my smoke shop? Yeah you did take our land. Now you want my rights!?(again) Why don't you go after Canada, New York didn't collect state taxes on them yet!
You are CONFUSED and a DUMBASS racist. Im a white man, and I didnt take anything from you or your DUMBASS tribe. Go get an education the government pays for it, or are you too CONFUSED and a DUMBASS. Everyone knows the only thing that goes on at the reservations besides the smoke shops, is DRUGS and PROSTITUTION.

I know the Canadians have a serious problem with their Indian Tribes. They say they are all a bunch of alcoholic criminals on welfare. I thought the weren't supposed to drink firewater?

Indian reservations are US soil ... hence they recieve US welfare money and numerous other types of finanical aid, FBI and federal Bureau of Indian Affairs Police aid in criminal investigations, etc

They are NOT sovereign nations, and if they declare so it is an act of treason. We all know what happened to the Confederate States of America.

Why do the "Indians" deserve anything given to them? Because we took their land? I wonder if Hitler would have given the Jews a few dozen fixed slot machines to run in Berlin? Or if we should just let the Mexicans run the border illegally, hey, we did take Texas.
You, and your kind are the reason when I left Long Island I wiped the dirt from my feet.

You are raised not to trust people, use people to get ahead, to bad so sad for them.

I've travelled, I've acknowledge I was a NY'er, the most unfavorable response was "you are not from long island are you"

To many of you are rude, selfish, scared, self serving bluffing bs'ers.

To talk that way to a Native American proves your stupidity.

Living there I learned one thing. It doesn't matter if anything works, all it has to do is fit the part for 80%. Thats why you get the worst of the illegals down there. They are the only ones that can survive!

PHONEY!

I'm sure they are, they are welcome to what I left behind.

Think about it. You live on top of a dump. The garbage USED to be underground. Now they live on top. You can't manage to clean up your neighborhoods, because that means your family will go to jail. You are surrounded by illegals, you hate them, you hire them secretly, then complain about them. You create the very problems you whine about down there, because of your ethics.

It's a proud thing for a LI'er to steal their company blind, and boo hoo when they close up and move the company south.

The corruption in your school districts costs you millions in embezzlement's, but hey, that just means you have a chance to get away with it one someone goes to jail.

Every time I turned around, another person was arrested for stealing from the school budget. The remedy for this, was to hire more people, to watch the people, watching the people, who yes, watched the people in charge of the revenue. LOL.

I see too that your county cops have gotten plenty of media attention. Video's showing abuse, profiling, all sorts of unethical behavior.

But hey, you are bad, real bad mo'fo's and the rest of the country should tremble in your presence.

Hint - when you leave LI, and you tell people you are from NY, go ahead, be your arrogant selves. It helps you stand out and away from the rest of us.

In my estimation more than 90% of so called Native American Tribes here on Long Island are nothing more than Afro-Americans sitting on their asses living off the fat of the people. True Native-Americans can easily be identified by simple dental examinations. True Native-Americans have a gene that produces what anthropologists call 'Shovel Incisors'. No other race with the exception of Siberian natives have this trait. Really want to call FOUL...Suffolk Counties 'cap' on gasoline at $2 per gallon!

Don't Indians believe in sharing the earth? As for the tire burning, that was an act of terrorism and should've been dealt with accordingly.

If they don't want to pay taxes, they can forfeit their right to vote, take care of their own lands and people, and conduct their business to themselves. If the indian gets a 1200 dollar check in the mail every month from their casino, they dont need any welfare. they can get off their fat red asses and get jobs like any other NYS resident.
Boy are you ever over worked and soo underpaid, it is reflected by your hostility for sure, and yes you may have several valid points and I can respect that, however, you fail to walk a mile in our red ass moccassins. Not only do we have to face the fact every day that we have "so called special rights "and tax exemptions etc. etc. we are constantly reminded of it by the disdainful glances we endure when we step off the REZ . jealousy gets you no where!We are challenged to maintain our culture through a steady revival effort and dilligent educational process that allows us the equal opportunity to articulate our point of view on this whole mess called modern living. We do so by getting and maintaining respectable jobs, buying, yes buying respectable homes and raising respectable children who not only learn mainstream societal ideals to assist them in their adult lives , but also go to six intensive ceremonies plus per year to show our respect for all life so as to help reinforce their sense of identity. After all we do know where we came from, as opposed to the scourges and outcast of your European ancest
ors who were shipped out by huge boatfuls to purge Europe of scum. In 500 short years your ancestors have dimminished our Mother Earth to the mess she is today. Try to have a more positive and balanced state of mind, because our taxed and regulated red asses recommend it hands down, bring it down a knotch!

New York State suddenly wanting to tax tobacco sold on reservations is completely bogus. The government is doing nothing but showing their greed to the people in which they've been showing for years. I am not a smoker or a tobacco user of anykind but my girlfriend and a few members of my family are and the government is trying to stick them for unjust taxes any way they can. I personally wouldnt mind paying the taxes as long as they were lower than taxes off the res and if all the tax money went directly to the tribes to help them out. But unfortunately I know it wont because once again our government has to have their fingers in EVERYBODYS money. Having direct recent Native American ancestors I feel very strongly that the "americans" are treating Indinans like crap by coming and taking THEIR land and forcing them onto these reservations to begin with. The government basically wanted them on a concentration camp and is now mad that the natives made the best of things and are making money. So now they wanna make money off of them making money. The government is so unjust in so many ways that its not even funny.

YOU ARE A RACIST ASS!!!!
WHO WAS HERE FIRST THE INDIANS OR THE WHITES?
As far as I know the indians were here first. The whites just came and tore there land apart, all of you are sitting here running your mouths about the indians but how long do you think it would have taken you to learn how to harvest food? How long do you think it would have been before all the whites died becuase they didnt know how to live on native american soil? You all really need to look at the facts they were here first, whites kicked them off there land. They have rights too and the government shouldnt be able to take them away. If the government felt it was right before to sign a treaty then maybe thats what needs to be done now, keep things the way they were thats the way you keep your life going strong, we need to be able to live life not always want to start a fight like we did in Iraq.

I am a smoker and I dont feel that just because you are a smoker means that you just sit on your ass. i go to school, I work. Just becuase you drink doesnt mean that you sit on your ass either for whomever thought that they needed to bring that into the matter, and go completly off topic. Idians have rights to, if theres need to be taken then so do ours. We dont have a right to be here we ruined there way of living by taking there land and trashing it. You are all stupid

I think your an Idiot plain & simple. About terrorism you stated didnt you mean that when the Indians had their land & it was taken over by guns & killing of their people that in fact that was terrorism long before you were ever thought of? Oh yes and that terrorism that was brought on was by what you may know now by name as your goverment! You should KISS the ass of an Indian!*(/)*(|)* If not for them being the 1st terrorized to give up what they had you would'nt have been able to write that moron of a thought that you did..STUPID! & What have you really contributed to any thing except for being uneducated! you are a pure joke! remember Stupid is = to self-pity *(|)
