I support Glendale chamber of commerce and it's executive members for opposing tribe's plan to create a Casino in the West Valley near city of Glendale. Casino is nothing but destruction of families. It ruines young men and womens and force them into illegal activities. Gambling leads to addiction and destroys life. It attracts criminal elements which is dengerous to society.
I urge every citizen of West Valley to oppose creation of Casino in our neighborhoods.
Thanking you.

Thanks genius, it is not all about having will power. Go check on schools and colleges drop outs. Preach them about will power and help them to get degrees.

I don't think gambling caused our students to drop out of school or college. I'm talking about will power to stay out of the casinos. You sound like someone who may have been affected by someones gambling problem. Sorry if that's the case, but there is help out there if will power is not enough. They can call 1-800-GAMBLER for help. As to your fair city of Glendale, leave it up to the voters to voice their opinion and let the chips fall where they may. Have a good day.

Please enlighten me as to exactly how does a casino force anyone to do anything, especially illegal activities?

I am in full support of anything the indian community wants to do with it's own land. Who are we to dictate what they can and can't build on their own land, as long as it is legit.

Glendale's pis*ed because they can't get their grubby little fingers all the way in the pie!

Hello,

How can they opose tribal wishes in regards to what the tribe wants to do on tribal land? I ask as was under the impression that tribes are self governing and in possession of limited sovereignty.

If you don't like casinos, dont go to one, I personally think they need to do away with all the tribal benefits as the indian community is collecting alot of untaxed money, and income running casinos, resorts etc, we also pay each person Of indian decent , unknown sums of money for education, housing, etc, the tribes and get us government benefits in a sense "double dipping". casino revenue and also benefits. How long does a country have to pay for the ignorance of its forefathers, my family didnt even live in the us at that time, they immigrated legally into the US though ellis island. No one made any special accomodations in the early 1920's, you learned the language got a job no matter how menial and made a living, no help, etc. Let them open casinos , pay taxes and and cut tribal benefits, how much does that help the economy and the deficit. I do not see special programs for African American who were slaves, or for people who worked as endutured servants, or the people who lost everything while in japanese internment camps, etc,
