The day will come when Max Osceola, Jr. becomes Tribal Chairman. Then, Max's unique and consistent voice of reason and wit will surely and wisely bring the Seminole Tribe's story further into the American consciousness.
Max Osceola, Jr. will NEVER be the chairman of the Seminole Tribe of Florida. You obviously do not know this man very well at all. He is just as crooked as Mitchell and David Cypress. Don't let these newspaper articles fool you, the Seminole Tribe seems to be awesome on paper but their government is a mess and the Seminoles of Florida are a laughing stock across Indian Country because they allow this to continue by voting the same stooges onto their Council. The Tribe as a whole LOST today with the loss of Andrew Bowers because now their Council is complete with IDIOTS, including Max Osceola and his stupid "B.C." comments. Actually, the "B.C." fits the Council very well now. How about BASICALLY CORRUPTED!

Do you guys really don't have to pay taxes or is that just a myth? Also, do you get $5,000 a month per child from the US Gov't? If so, then I want some of PocaTwatus.
PocaTwatus. Thats good. I'll have to remember that for the next time i crawl off your mom.

But to answer your question. The government give us nothing. and we do pay taxes like everyone else. How we get our money is every time your mom goes to the hard rock drink and gamble away the fact that your her child, we get that cut. Our money comes from our businesses.
I hope this was informative and educational. If you hace any more questions please knock twice so I have time to finish on you moms face.

This isn't new. The Seminoles' leadership has continually faced financial difficulties and rampant fiscal corruption. Given the equally corrupt mess of our state and local governments, the ensuing disaster should not bring startled or surprised facial expressions.

People continually blame the tribe for not making the smart choices. This is hypocrisy in its finest form. It is horribly obvious that 99.9 percent of the non-Native American population is clueless. We continually elect the same cronies, too. We have not learned from our mistakes. In addition, we rely on spoon feeding from the government.

We should not blame others for our own shortcomings. This is personal responsibility. Oops! I said the unspeakable words! I should be banned from this forum. I should be cast out among the "barbarians".

The posters who blame the Native Americans have been hiding their own skeletons in their closets. We should be honest. We have been doped. We have repeated the messy ripples of history. As a state, we are condemned to repeat the past. Personal responsibility has vanished.

We do not get monys just for having kids. The child get his/her even share of the seminole tribe stock. Its is the childs money and is held until the child becomes of age. The only way you could benefit is if the mother was stupid enough to give you custoy of the childs money which never happens. The other way is if she become a sugar momma to you.
In any case this system was set up buy our elders who understood that more into the future money would help our people and created businesses to make money so that we all can have money without having to ask the white man for anything. Our Government laws looks out for us our officials, Thats a different story.

Is that really anyone's business on how much each Tribal member adult or child recieves other than the Tribal Member's?(That's whats wrong with the world today people can't mind there own business.)Are you jealous or are you admiring the wealth that the Seminoles have come into in just a few short years. You can't blame them for the money that they make. All you can do is blame yourself or someone else for supporting their thriving businesses. If you don't like it, OH WELL... there are other people in this state, country, world who do appreciate their business sense. But at the same time what does this conversation have to do with the topic of the artical "Seminole tribal chairman wins re-election"?

And this week Billie is back, a landslide. The truth about the tribe is this, and remember follow the money. The tribe collects $3 billion, yep $3,000,000,000.00 dollars a year, most tax free. This means if this tribe went public on the NYSE the market cap, or what the tribe is valued at is $250,000,000. billion. No you know why murder, bribery and other crimes exist. Some other facts. the tribe collects via government agency, BIA, an additional $245,000,000 million a year, your tax dollars at work!!! when each family of the tribe receives $850,000 annually TAX FREE from the casinos. Fact 3, they have two casinos offshore which receives bundles of cash three times a week via there own jet. And who shot the blind lawyer,twice???? another crime conveniently unsolved. Who is the mastermind sent by Lansky back in "79", yep, look at "Skip"
I predict a lot more shooting this year, watch out..
