Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me."

You are too stupid, and ignorant to breathe on your own. Who is it that tells you when to inhale, and then exhale? Your government? Sure sounds like it.

THE LUMBEES ARE NOT ABOVE FEDERAL LAW !!!!IF THEY VIOLATE THE LAW WHICH PROTECTS THE EAGLE AND OTHER BIRDS ARREST THEM AND FINE THEM !!
THESE NON-FEDERALLY RECOGNIZED GROUPS ARE POPPING UP EVERYWHERE AND ARE TAKING AWAY FROM RESERVATION SOVEREIGN NATIONS REAL FEDERALLY RECOGNIZED NATIVES AND TRYING TO SLIP IN ANYWAY POSSIBLE TO GET CASINOS AND OTHER NATIVE AMERICAN BENEFITS,
SOVEREIGN INDIAN NATIONS WERE REMOVED AND SUFFERED TRAIL OF TEARS WELL DOCUMENTED AS ALWAYS HAVING BEEN NATIVES THESE NEW GROUPS LOOK FOR LOOP-HOLES TO GET ANY SMALL THING THAT CAN CONNECT THEM TO REAL TRIBES AND THEN SAY LOOK WE ARE INDIANS TOO...THERE IS NO ISSUE WITH BEING PROUD OF YOUR CLAIMED HERITAGE BUT WHEN YOU TRY TO GET IN ON THE BENEFITS THATS GOING TOO FAR !! THE LUMBEE HAVE NO TREATYS WITH THE USA AND WERE INVENTED IN 1957 AFTER TRYING TO PASS AS CHEROKEE FOR OVER 50 YEARS ..SO THE REAL INJUSTICE HAS BEEN CHEROKEE IDENTITY THEFT BY THESE POSER GROUPS SUCH AS LUMBEE CLAIMING HERITAGE BASED ON MYTHS NOT FACTS .....PROTECT REAL SOVEREIGN NATIONS AND THE EAGLE FIRST..
THESE WANNABEE GROUPS LIKE LUMBEE AND CULTURE CLUBS WILL ALWAYS BE AROUND TO TRY TO GET IN ON THE BENEFITS !!!

Protect the eagle and other birds ,fine the violaters and wannabee people....

WHO VIOLATE LAWS SET THERE TO PROTECT THE EAGLE,

THE LUMBEE HAVE NO EAGLE FEATHER CUSTOMS... THEY MADE THEM UP A FEW YEARS AGO TO LOOK LIKE PLAINS INDIANS AT POWOWS!!!

LOOK AT THE SEMINOLE OF FLORIDA.... WHO ARE REAL NATIVES THEY HARDLY WEAR ANY KINDA FEATHERS ! BECAUSE THEY ARE THE REAL THING !!!

WANNABEE ALWAYS WANT FEATHERS TO FOOL YOU SUCKERS..

NATURE HAS ALWAYS SUFFERED AT THE HANDS OF MAN..

THE LAW LIMITS IT TO THE SOVEREIGN NATIONS OF INDIANS NOT CLUBS AND WANNABEES ,EVEN IF THEY HAVE LOBBIED CONGRESS AND BEEN DENIED LIKE THESE LUMPEES.

Lumbees ARE NOT PART OF ANY SOVEREIGN INDIAN NATION,
this is about Sovereign nations rights which means federally recognized tribes and not groups that wannabee recognized !
SO BETTER NOT GET CAUGHT TRYING TO USE FEDERAL INDIAN BENEFITS LIKE EAGLE FEATHER POLICY ,
REGARDLESS OF WHAT CLAIM YOU THINK YOU ARE !!
Eagles should be PROTECTed SOVEREIGN NATION INDIAN LAWS AND THE EAGLES AND OTHER BIRDS
SO AS A NON-RECOGNIZED PERSON WHATEVER YOU THINK YOU ARE
DONT DISRESPECT FEDERAL INDIAN LAW WHICH EXEMPTS SOVEREIGN NATIONS FROM THE FEATHER POLICY !!!
WHATEVER YOU ARE, IF YOU ARE NOT A SOVEREIGN NATION ONLY SOVEREIGN INDIAN NATIONS ARE EXEMPT AND YOU WANNABEE PEOPLE INVENTED INDIANS AND NON-FEDERALLY RECOGNIZED ARE NOT SOVEREIGN NATIONS SO STOP TRYING TO SLICK YOUR WAY INTO OUR BENEFITS as sovereign nations by claiming some heritage ....WE SUFFERED THE TRAILS AND REMOVALS AND YOU DIDNT
FACT YOU ARE NOT EXEMPT FROM ANY FEDERAL LAWS AS INDIVIDUALS NOT MATTER WHAT TRIBE YOU CLAIM IF YOU ARE NOT A NATION LEGALLY ..........
SO DONT MOLEST OUR AMERICAN EAGLES AND HAWKS PRECIOUS WILDLIFE

Wow this is the biggest post of bullshit, but a good waste of time though. I think Mr.Gomez should visit Pembroke NC during the Lumbee Homecoming during the 4th of July and think about reading this post to anyone who would listin, he might not make it away from there but until you meet these people and know their struggle write about your own history, don't get pissed because they are fighting for their rights because a name like Gomez sure isn't American so unless you feel like going back to your ancestors home land take a big dose of STFU and go blow on someone else's whistle. Are you mad because when your family arrived they didn't get as much aid as they wanted because if you look around everything seems to come in Spanish and English so we are making things easy for everyone and you should do the same and write an article about how you think that you should be the next president haha what a f*****g joke!!!!!!
