so what if Indians apply for grants, they have the right too. and the casino's do pay taxes! look at the fight the Fond du Lac reservation is having with the city of Duluth! they already gave them 80 million dollars where is all that money gone too? the roads in Duluth are shit! yet the city and state keep raising taxes on home owners and people that are working to make a living!! I'm tired of it!!

This is ridiculous! If they had put African American People recieve money would all these posts really be put on here. I doubt it. I don't like how people think that Native American's get money from the Casino's.... Most of them get nothing but free medical. The medical help is so bad. They would rather pull teeth than fix a cavity. If you have a broken leg on saturday you have to wait until monday to go to the doctor because they are only open Monday-Friday 8 to 430. The towns they live in have no jobs and are way far away from a actual town with something other than a little gas station. This money is to help them get better and go to school. But everyone else is so worried bout it as if they needed that money or they were hoping to go to school for criminal justice. And you know what there is a lot of Native people that are out there that don't give the rest of them good names. That make the natives look bad. But this money is for Native's to learn in Criminal Justice. So maybe one day they will be in your area working.... and maybe save your life.... So just stop worrying bout the past, and hope they get a good education and do good in the future.

People PLEASE YOU all wanna blame President Obama for the war our economy OBAMA was not the one who sent our troops in to war,when in fact the only one to blame and point a finger at is GEORGE BUSH. You all want to place blame on whats going on here in the USA. You who all go out of your way to point at President are the BUSH followers who help get us where were at with the government, war and economy...George Bush had TEN YEARS to cause this damage to our country. Instead of trying to bring down our President who is trying to fix Bush mess we should be so lucky we have President Obama.
