Full story: The Clarion-Ledger
Praises Oreck vacuum cleaners even after David Orech took our Katrina money to stay and snuck out with it not to another location in Mississippi but Tennessee a few weeks. later.
Likes Toyota and their run away cars. Was the biggest PR man for them making excuses on all the networks rather than doing his job. Don't think he'd talked to Toyota in months. Just kissing up. That Corolla might kill you as far has he knows but at least they paid him and Mississippi some money. Or I'm wrong and Haley knows what makes secret software in cars tick. Probably got a degree from Devry.
Likes Howard's and their illegals.
Likes that rapist he let go home for Christmas on a 30 day leave from Parchman.
He likes any corporation that'll give him a nickle. If they Choctaws dropped off a bag of cash him, the Lt. Gov., Sec. of State and Commissioner of agriculture(how did he get involved with this???!) Would all back down or at least turn that rhetoric down from a ten to a two when they could be found.
Any and all revenue from tribal casinos goes to the tribe, and NOT to the state. The state does not collect taxes on it nor does the state have any say whatsoever in regulation of said casinos.
These casinos are under the oversight of only the federal govt. and said workers only pay taxes to the tribe and to the federal govt.
While it probably would be beneficial to that one area where it's coming up @, as it would bring in gamblers from other areas, it's a bad idea because poor people in Jones County would gamble away their money and they wouldn't be able to get jobs at the casinos.
Employment @ the casino(s) is per the tribe. Meaning they hire and fire who they want and they can discriminate because of the nature of the casino operation and federal contracts.
The oil spill is going to murder the coast. We're already down at least 25% in our annual gaming revenues and we provide 40-50% of the state's total budget.
You'll be feeling that as well.
Barbour is right on this, this will actually be a net drain on the state because it'll keep gamblers from the Pine Belt and those who travel down the I-59 corridor away from the coast casinos.
The money will be sent to Philadelphia, where it will then be sent to wherever the tribe keeps it's long-term investments, which are probably bond, stock, and commodity investments in another state or country.
The tribe looks out for the tribe's interest, not yours. They also don't have to pay local or city taxes. They are exempt because tribal land, even if it's in 'your county' is not county land, but federal land set aside for said tribe who owns it.
They don't have to get permits from the county or state or city(if they are in a city) and will take revenue and send it up to Neshoba county, while most of you sit around broke.
Your gov. is actually looking out for your welfare and for the welfare for your state.
His political preferences and corporate interests aside, his support is good for the people who would go to Natchez or Vicksburg or the Coast and game there, and who thus would pay taxes that would support you in the state.
Instead, the tribe is notorious for hoarding it's money and keeping in Philadelphia.
You want money siphoned away from your region, support this casino.
You are entitled to your opinion, but you are posting half truths, either because you don't know what you are posting.
Answer these questions. Is the compact legal? Does the State of Mississippi support the Choctaws?
The answers are simple; do some research. I believe you probably work for the Casino industry.
Bottom Line; you don't have a clue on what you're posting, and only parroting what you have read.
It's common sense though. Do you not know anything about tribes and tribal casinos?
They pay NO state taxes.
They answer to one authority: the Dept. of Indian Affairs.
Congress and the President are the only 2 authorities with any sort of regulation over them. I've heard they even have a special type of federal court to handle tribal affairs.
The tribe is not answerable to Haley Barbour and State Troopers or local police CANNOT come onto tribal land w/out tribal approval. I don't even think regular people are allowed on tribal land w/out approval.
Their casinos are not regulated by the Miss. Gaming Commission. They pay no state taxes. They pay federal taxes and keep the rest for themselves.
If I am wrong, educate me. What I know I know from reading national press articles about various tribal casinos and what I was told in university regarding tribes and how they stand with the govt. now.
A tribe is basically it's own state. State authorities have no regulation over them at all in any manner, whether gambling, taxation, or otherwise.
I am no expert on Tribal Law, but I am well versed on what the Compact signed between then Governor Fordice and Chief Martin signed. I would suggest that you research the Compact. It allows the Choctaws to open a Casino on their Tribal Lands. The Choctaw reservation in Sandersville is part of their lands, and has been since the early 40's or late 30's.
It is true that the Choctaws pay no gaming tax or for that matter very few tax's to the State of Mississippi. Conversely, the State of Mississippi gives no money to the Choctaws for education, roads, etc;. The Choctaws do receive Federal grants. They are ruled by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
The Choctaws have developed several industries that have far reaching areas of industries. They are an expert at self determination. For years, the State of Mississippi could have cared less about the Choctaws. When Chief Martin started to develop various industries, the State got very interested concerning potential tax's. When Gaming came in, they developed two successful Casinos, and tried to develop a Casino on the Gulf Coast in Jackson County. Contrary to popular belief, the State or the voters didn't stop them, because they couldn't.
The Choctaws decided to withdraw their plans.
As far as law enforcement, the Tribe has it's own. Any one can go on a Choctaw reservation. I have several times. I am no Indian, and to my knowledge have no Indian blood in my heritage.
The bottom line is that this is an effort by a group of people to stop a Casino, who do not know the facts, and this lack of knowledge is probably being fueled by the Casino Owners on the Coast and other areas to keep it from opening. What's interesting to me, is that the coalition in Jones County is on the same side with the other casinos, in the same manner that these type of coalitions line up with bootleggers to keep liquor out.
Suggest you read the compact.
"I am no expert on Tribal Law, but I am well versed on what the Compact signed between then Governor Fordice and Chief Martin signed. I would suggest that you research the Compact.

I don't have to read the compact because federal law trumps state law(s).
Idk what they signed with Fordice but it was probably for window dressing and because they wanted to be nice guys back in the day.
They certainly didn't have to sign anything. All they have to do is file a claim with the Dept. of Indian Affairs and per approval after submitting the proper paperwork, they can open up as many casinos as federal law allows, so long as its on their tribal land.
I thought most of their holdings were up near Neshoba County but if the Jones County-area land is tribal land, I imagine all they have to do is file a claim with the federal govt. and wait for either approval or denial. Jones County is a ways away from their main area, so it'll probably be declined, but the federal govt. is within its power to grant them legal permission to open up a gambling operation on THEIR land.
"It is true that the Choctaws pay no gaming tax or for that matter very few tax's to the State of Mississippi. Conversely, the State of Mississippi gives no money to the Choctaws for education, roads, etc;. The Choctaws do receive Federal grants. They are ruled by the Bureau of Indian Affairs."
I already said that. This is what shocked me when I took a law class in college, their land is NOT state land. Even though it's inside the political borders of this state, it's not Miss. land. It's tribal land, it's literally like it's own state. If you go out west there are tribal lands(Navajo and Apache, I think) in New Mexico and Arizona who's land rivals that of the entire state here.
And it's THEIR land. Gov. Barbour and the legislature and our state courts have NO power over their land, taxation, water usage, anything.
They are their own political entity and make their own laws, which, as long as they comply with those of the federal govt., are fine.
"The Choctaws have developed several industries that have far reaching areas of industries. They are an expert at self determination. For years, the State of Mississippi could have cared less about the Choctaws. When Chief Martin started to develop various industries, the State got very interested concerning potential tax's. When Gaming came in, they developed two successful Casinos, and tried to develop a Casino on the Gulf Coast in Jackson County. Contrary to popular belief, the State or the voters didn't stop them, because they couldn't.
The Choctaws decided to withdraw their plans."
I know. I live in Jackson County, that's another reason why I know about the tribe and the laws pertaining to their land and business operations. I voted against their operations because it would have taken money from our casinos, which aren't doing too well these days.
But you are correct, we had no say. The federal govt. could have let them open up a casino had they so wanted to, and we down here would have had no say in the matter.
"As far as law enforcement, the Tribe has it's own. Any one can go on a Choctaw reservation. I have several times. I am no Indian, and to my knowledge have no Indian blood in my heritage."
You might be right on this, idk. I do know they have their own jail and police(cont.)
(con.)force but again, they aren't answerable to Barbour or any judicial, executive, law enforcement, or executive power when it comes to the state of Mississippi. They literally are a state within a state, answerable only to the federal govt.
And again, like I said, any gaming revenue they take from Miss. River and Coast casinos, goes to THEIR tribe and NOT to the state and to the taxpayers of Mississippi.
And look, the coast is 40% of all tax collections in this state. You diminish our casino and tourist revenue, you're slitting your own wrists man. That's lest money for crooks in the northern part of the state to use on their pork projects that they use with our money.
And trust me, the tribe will NOT share revenues if you ask them too. They use their own money on themselves and their tribal members.
"The bottom line is that this is an effort by a group of people to stop a Casino, who do not know the facts, and this lack of knowledge is probably being fueled by the Casino Owners on the Coast and other areas to keep it from opening."
No crap man. I DO NOT work for a casino nor do my relatives. I don't even gamble as I am a southern baptist.
BUT -- you miss common sense my friend. What facts am I missing? How will a tribal casino help you or the state of Mississippi? Unless you're a shill for the tribe and/or you have family in the tribe I don't understand why you're defending them, they really don't give a flip about you or your state. They have their revenue and could care less about you or the state that surrounds them.
"What's interesting to me, is that the coalition in Jones County is on the same side with the other casinos, in the same manner that these type of coalitions line up with bootleggers to keep liquor out.
Suggest you read the compact."
Again, the compact is basically toilet paper in a federal court. Federal law trumps state law. The state can file suit in court or can give a 'supporting legal brief' to said federal court siding against the tribe but they can't stop the tribe from building on their own land.
And the casinos in Philadelphia hire mainly(and maybe only) tribal members. Sure, tourist revenue benefits the surrounding areas but you gotta think, the tribe can send its own workers to Jones county to man the casino there. They don't have to hire Jones county residents if they don't want to. It's their land legally, not the state's.
That's my point. You're either a shill for the tribe or you are horribly confused, one of the 2. I don't know which.
Barbour, for all his faults and shortcomings, is doing the right thing here. He's looking out for his state's economic interests. If revenues go to the tribe, they aren't going to the coast or river casinos. And if they aren't going there, they aren't going to Jackson to the general fund.
Look, the gov. and legislature just slashed a TENTH from the state budget this past year due to budget and tax shortfalls.
Any further reduction in gaming revenue will only sink the state further into the hole and cause more layoffs for state workers in this depressed region.
Again, either you're insane, a shill for the tribe, or completely ignorant about economics and tax law and political revenue issues.
The tribe cares about the tribe.
They don't give a sh%t about you or anybody in this state.
Barbour is looking out for the welfare of the state on this one issue and I back him totally.
One of the rare occasions he and I strongly agree on something.
And let's not forget, if the fed. govt. backs the casino, Barbour can't stop its construction.
And you Jackson people will be out even more in tax revenue. But hey man, if that's what you want, whatever.
People are already moving away from the coast and OUT of the state(not to Jackson) because the oil spill is causing lay offs and a drop off in tourism.
You want more people and tax revenue to leave the state and go to the tribe?
Then support your tribe.
....and again, I don't know if you have a personal vendetta against the state or if you're a friend of the tribe or if you're just ignorant but you obviously weren't down here in 2006 or 07 when the tribe came down here to hold 'community meetings.'
I sat there and heard what the tribe official said to us. He told us in so many words that 'look, this is our land, we can do whatever we want with it.'
And per the fed. govt.'s approval, he was dead right.
We had a big vote on it and we said we opposed it, but our vote meant nothing. That land was not our land, it was there.
And had they built that casino, I guarantee some of the casinos here now wouldn't be here and many other people would have moved away.
Be on guard, as bad as Barbour is, I'm beginning to think soon you'll be nostalgic for his days in office.
He cut half a BILLION dollars from the state budget this past year:
And that article also notes that federal stimulus funds run out over the next 2 or 3 years. Those funds were helping keep a lot of our state budget items alive. Many people will be laid off.
If you live in a college town dependent on state revenue, or in Jackson, or in say where a prison or school or govt. office is, you're basically screwed.
Starkville, Hattiesburg, Oxford, Cleveland, Jackson and other cities will see sharp cuts in state money. Jackson has a lot of govt. jobs that won't be there next year.
A lot of the state money that vanishes into pockets for road projects in Northern Mississippi will be cut soon.
It's going to be very ugly. And Northop Grumman just said it's selling the shipyard down here. More layoffs here. The casinos are laying off, everybody.
Not good news from Jackson.
Hey man, you want to shoot yourself in the foot, have at it.
Just don't ask us to clean up the mess when you're done bleeding.
I won't dignify your posts by rebutting each thing you wrote, because if I did it would be, like yours, too long, and I'm not going to WASTE MY TIME, to someone who doesn't know the basic principals of jurisprudence, but yet pretends to have been a law student.
But it is evident that you haven't read the Compact or know what it is, or for that matter know where to find it. If you knew anything about what a Compact is, then you would know that the Federal Government requires an agreement re; a Compact between the State and The Indian Tribe in order to allow Gaming. Without a Compact, nothing goes forward.
I could also care less about you living on the Coast,that you're a Baptist, or trying to protect the Coast Casinos. Those are things by choice; yours! So live with it.
Again, No, I am not an Indian, but I am a supporter of the Law, which you apparently know very little about, but pretend to.
You also need to look at the revenues in the State, the Coast in it's three counties doesn't produce forty percent of it, you might start at the Department of Revenue re; Tax Commission.
I'm sorry about the industries leaving the Coast because I have property there, but it was my choice to own it there.
Take care, and go read a few law books, because it is apparent that you didn't learn nothing while you were in law school. By the way, Law books have very few pictures.
the land is the tribe re-served. look at the the developement along the coast, before the casino the coast was not developing. build it they will come instead of jones county increasing hattiesburg, coast, tax base, we can use a little outside revenue to increase our on base ie. hotel stay, restaurants, they need to make it bigger and better. we have liquor stores gun shops, sell beer on every corner, if you don't want to indulge simply don't go. the southernmost tribal land is sandersville after the jackson county stoppage, make since. if the governor care anything about all ms. he would have accepted unemployment benefits for the state. he's getting kick backs from the mafia control casino's . the matrix knows!
The problem with tribal casinos breeze is that they hire their own people. And tribes are not bound by the civil rights act, they can discriminate on hiring.
Because of contracts with the federal govt., Indian tribes can control the quotas of who works at their operations. Meaning if they wanted to, 100% of their employees could be tribe members. They wouldn't have to hire a single dealer to work at the Jones County site.
I also hate to break it to you man but the tribal casino in Philadelphia has done next to nothing for Philadelphia. There's a huge ass hotel on the site of the casino and most of the restaurants and attractions are tribal-owned and on tribal-land.
The tribes will put Taco Bells and Waffle Houses on their land. While private land owners will develop and you'll get a few strip malls and gas stations and fast food joints, Jones County residents will begin gaming en masse.
And unlike on the coast, where the money is largely recycled to the workers here, the money goes straight to Philadelphia.
And I don't want to urinate on your high hopes or anything but the Creek tribe in southern Alabama has a casino and they're pretty close to both Florida and Mobile. They still haven't really put a dent into the coast's casinos.
The problem is lack of population. Jackson is the only other population center in this state with enough people to support the traffic. There aren't enough jobs in your region to support your casino man.
Philadelphia will get all the money and your county will have a net loss of revenue because locals will gamble huge chunks of their checks away every week.
Plus, less tax revenue to the coast and the river casinos means less money for your county. Which means fewer jobs overall.
The proposal more than likely will be rejected for the same reason the Choctaws wanted land on the coast.
Hell, the Creek tribe in Alabama is closer to Biloxi than is Jones County.
If you wanna work for the tribe so bad, move to Philadelphia.
But from what I hear these days they're kicking people out of the tribe to keep more money for themselves.
The Jones county operation will probably be rejected for the same reason.
And @ a compact -- compacts are amendable at the discretion of the federal govt.
If the administration wants to, all they have to do is give authority and that casino is up.
But hey, you want them to siphon off your money, have fun.
It is apparent that besides pretending to have studied law,you make things up as you go along to try and convince folks that you are knowledgeable about a subject that you know nothing about.
You don't have a clue about what has happened to Philadelphia since Casino gaming came there. This statement is like the one you said about the coast producing forty percent of the revenue for the state of Mississippi. You are wrong again; check your facts with the Tax Commission, or contact the Tax Assessor in Neshoba County.
You are wrong about the businesses on Tribal Lands,they(Choctaws) own all the businesses located on it, and the largest number of employees are non-Indian, and the two casinos are managed by non-Indians.
It's apparent that you did not take my suggestion and read the Compact, or read what a Compact is,because of your misguided statements.
The BIA (Bureau of Indian Affairs) of the Government reads and approves or rejects the Compact that was agreed too between the Tribe and the State.
Another thing, the
Casino was not built on the Coast because of the vote taken in Jackson County , or the State of Mississippi, but because it was to be built on "Non-Traditional" land owned by the Choctaws.
For your information, the Choctaws had they decided to pursue building the Casino in Jackson County, would have probably prevailed.
The obfuscation by you and others concerning the casino in Jones County is exactly that.
GEEZ you guys have been busy, too much to read but the above jump out.
My reply is come to Laurel and look at the brilliant things poor people spend their money on.$3000 Chrome rims,$200 dollar a month cellphone bills, lot of Budweiser and 62 inch TVs. There is a reason many are poor.
Then we got all those fake rich with 65000 dollar SUVs and houses they can't afford that are now up on the market and high credit card bills running several thousand a year in interest. Need the government to stop them? One year of credit card interest payments alone are more than most people will ever spend at a casino.
That's capitalism. DO NOT BUY what you can't afford and Do not gamble what you don't have. People always will but then again if they didn't many people would be out of a job without these crazy spendy folks and they'd be blowing it on some other rainbow. Likely a pyramid scheme or overpriced speculative real estate. Go to youtube and look up cash gifting if you want to see how well people keep their money.
We do not need more nanny state government saying you cannot drop a quarter in a slot. If we do maybe the government needs to be at car dealership telling people they need to fully fund their kids college before buying so much car. Sorry sir, The Governor has decided you should get nothing more expensive than the Chevy Cobalt program car after placing $2000 towards your child's college fund. No Cadillac CTS for you.
As far as the state not getting money. I Don't really care. They do a very poor job in priorities and managing money coming in even in a good economy.
So Indians run a cult and don't pay their employees or do they go somewhere else to spend money? Try again. Money goes straight to Philadelphia? What about the coast? The money goes to corporations/rich people in Nevada, New Jersey, California, Wall Street investor/hedge fund people living in other countries.
Hmm, then the whole thing will go under and you are huffing and puffing about something that'll never stay in business. Makes your repeated arguments about sucking money from people, state, area ect. a moot point since it'll never work man, dude.
We got more than enough guvmint workers around here standing around. One of the reason the state is in such a mess. Too many government workers compared to 10 or 20 years ago. BUT WAIT YOU SAID>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>
So it will not work due to not enough population and here's why it's bad when they operate the casino that will not work. Ever think about going into politics?
BTW- I see white and black working in Philadelphia.
Here's the link that describes why the Bureau of Indian Affairs dismissed the tribes petition for the new casino.
The reason, it's too far.
My links are getting deleted by the moderators.
Not sure why but I'll do them separately in an attempt to make sure they stay up and so they're more noticable.
You act as if Mississippi Law overrules federal law.
I think on the point of the compact, we're playing semantics and arguing over terminology. You just want it to look like Barbour has power over the tribe and the federal govt. Why? I don't know.
A lot of rednecks I know like to show off their power, must be a macho thing.
Basically, the Bureau of Indian Affairs has the final say is my point. The state of Mississippi has no say other than what they file in court. But if the federal govt. approves the Bogue Homa site, the casino goes up.
I guarantee you if the tribe wanted to put up a casino near Jackson or Meridian it would be approved because it's much closer to the central tribe area.
The tribe just wants to get coast gaming revenue.
That doesn't change the fact that I'm still right on their gaming revenue.
They're not regulated by the Miss. gaming commission. We get no taxes from them. Their revenues go straight to the tribe in Philadelphia.
And no, the tribe runs their casino. I've been there before. All the staff I saw were Choctaw. The bartender was a white guy. The ONLY non-tribal employee. The waiters were Indians. So were the security guards and workers.
My facts are straight.
You want this casino to go up, you either have a grudge against the coast and you want our revenue to be reduced and/or your a shill for the tribe. I don't know which but it's the truth. But for every penny that goes to the tribe, that's one penny that doesn't go into the general fund.
And one less penny to fund your roads and schools.
You want that son? More power to you.
You have interesting observations about broader trends.@ the African-American community and the whole rims thing, I've found that if you even comment about race and you're not black, the racist card comes out so I let them alone and let them deal with their culture as they see fit.
That issue is a hornet's nest and not one I comment on in public.
At white people and the SUVs and maxed out credit cards -- I couldn't agree more.
People live beyond their means and they'll be paying for it in a few years.
Onto your posts:
"So Indians run a cult and don't pay their employees or do they go somewhere else to spend money? Try again. Money goes straight to Philadelphia? What about the coast? The money goes to corporations/rich people in Nevada, New Jersey, California, Wall Street investor/hedge fund people living in other countries."
There was a guy a few years ago in Washington named Abramoff or something. He was a lobbyist. The Choctaws funneled MILLIONS to him to bribe congressmen to let them stop a casino in Alabama or something like that.
The Choctaw leadership I'm sure has their tribe's money invested in mutual funds and stock index funds the way most state pension funds do. They aren't stupid, That's what I meant when I say the money goes elsewhere.
The tribe spends some money on their people for health care, etc.
As for the money, the majority of it is either pocketed by those on top of the tribe or 'invested' in the tribes name in some mutual fund elsewhere.
That was my point. Sure, some gaming revenue goes to Vegas or w/ever the companies are located but by and large our money stays here. And we have access to both the Florida and Alabama and Louisiana markets.
The tribal casinos problem is that they're way out in the middle of nowhere with no real airport nearby to attract gamblers. That means that gamblers come from local areas. Meridian, Jackson, the Golden Triangle, Tupelo, the Delta, etc. And the Choctaws aren't attracting enough out of state gamers to offset what they take from local economies.
I'll be blunt, outside of people from Hattiesburg, we really don't get a lot of gamblers from north of the coast. Most of our clientele is either local, flies in, or comes from Florida, Louisiana, Texas, or southern Alabama.
Mobile isn't even an hour's drive and it's bigger than Jackson. Baton Rouge is bigger than Jackson. Slidell is as big or bigger than Gulfport/Biloxi.
New Orleans is the largest city in the region. Many of our gamers(a stat I heard from a friend who works at the Beau is a quarter of our clientele) come from the New Orleans area. Pensacola/West Florida also provides a lot of customers.
In fact, one of the reasons why our casinos STILL haven't recovered from Katrina is because our business was dependent on people from Louisiana. And after Katrina, literally several hundred thousand moved away....taking their money with them.
The rednecks don't shop at our casinos or stay at our hotels. Look @ justice, he wants to screw us and give our money to the Choctaws.
If the Choctaw casino is allowed maybe it's time we sought new political leadership for the coast and cut Jackson out of our action. Maybe it's time we kept our own money and financed our own schools. And take our 40% of the state budget with us.
"Hmm, then the whole thing will go under and you are huffing and puffing about something that'll never stay in business. Makes your repeated arguments about sucking money from people, state, area ect. a moot point since it'll never work man, dude."
Look, the state of Mississippi taxes coast casinos at a rate of 12%-- PLUS all sales tax collected from tourists who shop at our stores and eat at the restaurants and shop at our malls and stay at our local hotels. I'm talking out of state people who come here via I-10.
Justice seems to ignore this -- the Choctaws give NO tax revenue to the state of Mississippi outside of what business OFF tribal land in Neshoba county absorb from tourists and gamblers.
The last time I was up there the movie cinema, Gamestop, all the strip malls were on TRIBAL land.
The tribe doesn't pay city, county, or state taxes.
So while Philadelphia may benefit a LITTLE, overall it does not.
And again, if the tribe takes a dollar from the coast casinos, that's a dollar that goes to the tribe, and not to Jackson. And if it's not going to Jackson, it's not going to you in Jones county.
"We got more than enough guvmint workers around here standing around. One of the reason the state is in such a mess. Too many government workers compared to 10 or 20 years ago. BUT WAIT YOU SAID>>>>>> >>>>>>> >> "
To be honest, that's a stereotype.
People in this state make less than people in other states and our unemployment and underemployment rate is higher than every other state in the union save Michigan.
Justice would have you believe revenue to the tribe is revenue for the state -- and if it were -- why isn't Barbour supporting it then?
It's because Barbour knows his stuff on this one issue. Harrison County on the coast has more people than Lamar, Forrest, and Jones counties combined.
If you think you can draw enough revenue to your local Jones County economy good luck. But you'll only be draining it from Wayne/Jasper/Clarke counties. Nobody save a few people from Alabama will come to the casino.
But hey, I'm backing off
"So it will not work due to not enough population and here's why it's bad when they operate the casino that will not work. Ever think about going into politics?
BTW- I see white and black working in Philadelphia."
But the tribe looks out for it's own interests first. They hire their own people first above outsiders.
But hey, if jutice or whoever else wants the casino, go ahead. When gaming revenues on the river and on the coast decline further -- and thus so does Jackson's money.
Don't ask us down here for a bailout.
The answer is no.
