THIS IS THE UNITED STATES, NOT AFRICA, GO BACK WHERE YOU BELONG, AND TAKE THE MEXICANS WITH YOU, THEY ARE OVERLOADING THE U.S. MAKING THE WHITE MAN THE NEW MINORITY. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

Are native people living like they did 200 years ago? Do they not pollute as well? Do they not drive cars,etc.
In Canada, the legal tobacco industry is being forced out but illegal sales from natives are thriving. There are no age restrictions when buying tobbaco from the natives.
I hope Canada can add taxes to tobacco sold on the reserves.
LETS SEE IF THE "INDIANS" SELLING THIS GARBAGE ARE ON WELFARE, WHICH THEY ARE, THEY NEED TO PAY BACK THE SYSTEM. YOU KNOW THE BLACKS ALWAYS CRY THAT THEY ARE TREATED UNFAIRLY.... WELL LOOK AT YOU ANIMALS:OVERLOADING EVERY SYSTEM THAT THEIR IS EXCEPT EMPLOYMENT AND TO THE WHITE KIDS THAT ACT+DRESS BLACK: IM SURE YOUR PARENTS ARE REAL PROUD. IF YOUR WHITE, THAN BE IT !!!

THE US CONSTITUTION PROVIDES:

I have read so much garbage on this thread.
#1... The Constitution is a contract,(As you want to use as evidence), So is a treaty.

The Constitution is a contract that was violated by the scum in Washington. Therefore, we no longer owe any allegiance to the central government. Be that as it may, none of us here today signed onto the contract so it is null and void anyway. Secession is the path to liberty.

New york state can't manage their finances properly so who foots the bill, anybody they can get their hands on.When ny raised taxs on cigs and continued raising them what the hell did they expect the consumer to, just lay down and get raped by the government again.They looked for a way out and why not. At close to ten dollars a pack That is just insane.If it were at all possible to get everyone to quit they would be crying "where did all the money go" Lower the tax on cigs and people won't be running to the reservations.

I pay for their goddam welfare, their diabetes supplies and heartmedication they "need" because all they can do is sit at home and blow their welfare check on booze and their precious tobacco! Who'll pay for the cancer treatment? The taxpayers of NY! They live in NY, they can damn well pay taxes like the rest of us. Im sick of carrying their sorry asses through life. The American Indian isn't special anymore. Their culture no longer exists. They've become a burden to NYS. 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. Indians should count their blessings im not governor, or i would've given them a real "sovereign" nation- some deserted island out in the middle of the south pacific!
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.
youre paying taxes and a lot of it goes to black people. do they have their african culture? so they should go to hell as well then?

I have sat here and read some of these staments dating back to 2006. It is now April, 2011. Would like to say I am really shocked at the hatred and prejudice still held against the Indigent people of the USA... Like they're all poor drunks and do nothings. My GOD!
We (Caucasions) STILL don't get it! Hundred's of years and instead of learning from and respecting what's left of anothers indigent heritage... allowing them, to be themselves & even share with us what they've salvaged of their ancient and unique beliefs... we still go on in hatred and blaming them. Our ears and eyes closed. Our hands clenched in fists.
It's embarrassing. Its even more so as a white Christian. I am a white Christian woman - and I recognize this mentality. Its disgusting!
We promised Native American's things & land/ boundaries and have ALWAYS taken back our promises. Now today we are doing it again with taxes.
A promise is a promise. An agreement should stick. We should never go back on our word because we should simply be honorable. Not looking at it from jealousy, as: "ooh look at all they're getting, I want it!!" But looking at it from - we didn't give anything! We just didn't take it all. What they do with the little we left them... well it's theirs, and that should be final. Just because they might actually prosper we shouldn't say.... "oh, well then... if you're going to actually prosper, I change my mind!
Has the Caucasion - often Christian believing person - not changed at all? Theirs just no humility and that's rather sad.

I am all for sovernity. The Indians must then accept no police protection, no assistance from the local county CPS-yes they call us when their children are in trouble-real soverign- and no more financial assistance, given them back their fund the feds cant even account for and let them have soverignity its their right. As citizens a new yorker can goto another country and purchase its products-Canada for instance-enforce the same law we enforce when leaving our nation because we are leaving our nation to purchase stuff in another nation.

I think your a racist piece of trash, you know Indians aren't the only ones who collect welfare ya know, Whites, Blacks Hispanics, Jews, ECT...The point is this was their land before it was stolen and taken from them you think they would at least be given a state not even all they get is a piece of land in the boondocks so next time you decide to gripe just think they were here before your butt was and they have every right to not want to tax their items or pay tax. Oh yea thank god you aren't governor because I think I would be the first on line to assassinate your ass.

o I put on my new pair of CT/Loake brown calf semi-brogue today. After wearing them for a few hours, I felt a tiny pebble inside, so I took the shoe off, shook the little pebble out, and then when I was putting it back on, I heard a TWACK sound.
The tongue was pushed in. I looked into the shoe and found that the piece of stiching that connects the upper part of the tongue to one side of the upper broke!
Ooooooh...
