This thread is really funny.
We know why there are trailers on the Rez because no one loans money for homes out there.
What are the others excuse for the Trailer Lifestyle.
And the because it is cheaper doesn't pan out. By the time you figure in depreciation of a trailer they become quite expensive to own, even if well cared for.
technically, since a Navajo does OWN the land, WHY even bother to renovate or improve the land or trailer lot? The land is LEASED by the US Federal Government through its localized Navajo offices.
What other group in the United States today has its own US Bureau as in Bureau of Indian Affairs?

Kinda points out the hypocrisy of a con.
No, it points out the hypocrisy of a liberal. They ask questions and demand answers, but don't have the guts to answer questions themselves.

Being spineless will do that to a person.

You asked the following question of another poster:

No. I want you to answer the question.

Is it ok with you that something is legally sold that can kill you, as long as the government taxes it?
I responded: "You mean like guns?"

To which you replied: "Or automobiles."

Where us your question to ME? If you want my opinion of the question you asked someone else, my answer is yes.

You, on the other hand, are a hypocrite, because you want to apply your standard only to things that go along with your idea--not across the board. Hypocritical double standard, as usual.

Now, why don't YOU answer the question?

That's what happens when you butt into a conversation between two people that you haven't been paying attention to.

I already answered the question: See Post #95

Oh, and as for your "like guns" retort? Guns manufacturers and importers already pay an excise tax of 10% on pistols, 11% on long guns. The taxes are built into the price of the finished product, so it's hidden from consumers who don't know about it. Like all taxes, the consumer pays the tax through higher prices, just as consumers end up paying ALL taxes on consumer goods.

It's called the Firearms and Ammunition Excise Tax. Look it up.

Which word? "Why"? "yet"? "(Not)"? "missed"? "Post 111"?

Just not seeing it.

I think you're afraid to even try to give an answer, since it would expose you as a hypocrite like your idol, Limbaugh.

If you are looking for someone to hold your hand, you've got the wrong guy.

Hypocrisy? That's almost the sole domain of liberals.

Limbaugh? No worries. Conservatives aren't idol worshipers. That's a liberal thing too.

The Federal Government is the landowner. they lease it to the tribe and its members. It is hard to borrow money on a lease.

As far as improvements and taking care of things. Sorry on average a navajo keeps their stuff neater, cleaner and in better condition than other groups in a similar economic situation.

The US government has the BIA because of the unique relationship between the US government and the tribes, through the treaties. Maybe if the government gives back even a tenth of what they took from the tribes the BIA wouldn't be needed.

Just happened to check back on this forum after not seeing it for a couple of weeks. As I thought it would, it's degenerated into everyone throwing out the race card, calling each other names, trying to debate on what should be allowed and what can be done with ones own property. How about this, why doesn't everyone just stfu and freakin clean up their rat holes? Several years ago after visiting Juarez, Mexico and seeing the filth and trash there, I couldn't believe an American town or city would ever look like Juarez. Well, here it is twenty years later and guess what? San Juan County's running a close race with Juarez. It's simple people...clean up your messes and DON'T take it out to the hills and dump it. We have a landfill and drop boxes all over the county, USE THE LANDFILL AND CLEAN YOUR CRAP UP!!!

Comparing San Juan County with Juarez? You are an idiot. Sorry you hate where you live. Ever been to the rough parts of Albuquerque? Pajarito Mesa? Ever actually BEEN to Juarez? Haven't heard about finding dozen of people buried in a shallow grave out in San Juan County lately, or sacks full of human heads. I think Juarez is a bit rougher than Farmington, but the people who live there don't bitch as much as some of you.

First off I didn't say I hated where I live. I said people need to clean out their rat nests and quit dumping trash out in the hills. Second, as a matter of fact I grew up in the valley of Albuquerque and know for a fact you don't see the heaps of trash and junk piled around people's homes there. Third, I didn't address the on going issues of the terrorist drug lords who do have people murdered and thrown down mine shafts or tossed out dismembered body parts on the roadways in Juarez. And yes, I have been to Juarez numerous times since I lived in Las Cruces for three years. And just so you know, bodies are found quite often murdered out in these hills, my sister in law being one of them. And just yesterday another female was found naked and stabbed to death on the bluffs and left out for the crows. So now what are you talking about?

I'm talking about you being full of crap. You apparently haven't spent much time around Albuquerque, or watch the news for that matter, because there's illegal dumps all around the desert out here. Some have been used for decades. Ever driven south out towards Bosque Farms? Up on Pajarito, people don't have trash service, running water, sewage disposal, or even electricity at some places. It looks like little Mexico. But you still don't hear the bitching like from you. And what do mobile homes have to do with piling crap around your house or dumping trash in the desert? If you really want to be on topic, why are you complaining about what you don't like about where you live? I used to drive up the Farmington quite often on business, and it's nothing like what you describe. But some people just have to complain about their neighbors I guess.
