Linda seems to be off her meds.The Hiway 50 corridor is hardly rural.Do you know what rural means?I have lived here for 30 years and the 50 corridor has never been rural in all that time.Only time will tell but I really don't believe that the casino will make the drive to Placerville hell.All the traffic will be exiting in Shingle Springs and the traffic will not coincide with the usual commute traffic.I'm not saying that here will be no impact but there are benefits for some people too.Lastly,Who sayd El Dorado Hills is nice?That place is an embarrassing eyesore.There are some nice touches there but mostly it seems like a bunch of oversized tract homes stuck right next to each other.I feel sorry for those that bought those homes.

I've got to agree. Baumannville, I mean El Dorado Hills is WAY outta control. Only bay area lifers like the density in that part of the County.
And they can keep it, along with LaughCO!
Talk about close enough to spit in your neighbor's window!

You dont have to care if I am indian. What is important is that our government cares. Our government in its own little way has attempted to make ammends for its oppressive take over of our country. Is that good enough for you? Of course not because all you think about is what you have managed to "claim" as yours and your property values. Next time you buy a house you might want to do your due dilligence and not buy near protected land. Thats just as bad as people buying a house next to an airport then whining about it.
You talk about your people being oppressed, what the heck is that all about? I dont you see you in your country fighting for your rights. No, instead you come to my country and complain about how we use our land. If you are that concerned about your history then go back home and try and fix it. What gives you the right to plant your flag on someone elses land in order to fix your problems?
I am not pissed off for being set apart from society. In fact, I am grateful that society recognizes what they have done to us and have attempted to make it right. Actually, it sounds more like you are pissed off at your government for being big enough to try and make this right. For many years we have been pushed off of our land by people who want something that doesnt belong to them. And here you are with your little concerns about your property values. Keep in mind it was YOUR government that allowed us to have a small piece of our land back. If you dont like it write your congressman, if you think it will help.
My people didnt have to buy a license to fish before your little boats got here, why should we now? Besides, some Indians still fish for food, not just the sport of it.
I'm just curious.. "Our Government" I thought you Native Types were a Sovereign Nation Government.
And it seems to me "Your Government" are the ones with all the money putting up Casinos to make MORE money, and keeping you on the reservation in poverty... I can't for the life of me figure out just what it is the Indiginous Peoples want. Money or Fish!(No self respecting Native American would ever refer to theirself as "Indian")

Don't try to edit me, Trent. I can actually say whatever I want... Fifth Amdmt and all that stuff.
Besides, aren't you speaking for "others"?
And I'm serious. I am curious and I'm hoping some educated Native American, indigionous person will fill me in on what politics they (as a Nation) prefer.

I wasn't really trying to attack you Rosie.I'm only commenting on your comment that"No self respecting Native American would ever refer to theirself as indian". I know many that do and that is no measure of their level of self respect.As far as your reference to the fifth ammendment, I don't think that you know what the fifth ammendment is.If you do then please tell us all how it applies here.I think you are confused on that one.

Please don't read anything negative just because I'm posting... Thank you for your explanation.
I was being fascetious about the "5th".
My first article of the Bill of Rights allows me to speak my mind. It doesn't guarantee any of us the usual and expected recriminations that come with any unpopular "opinion"...
And the several Native Americans I have met in my life have corrected me on the anglicized term "Indian". "Indians are from India, Native Americans are from America".

Do you really think that our people are wealthy just because we are putting up a casino? Obviously you are misinformed. Besides helping many of our people that are impoverished, it will also contribute many dollars to our wonderful state. I AM indian and very self respecting. Native American is a term that is used to promote political correctness. I have no issue with either.
What is left of our peoples sovereignty is intact, even though we have been indoctrinated into the culture and government of the people that invaded and took our lands. Yea, it sucks, but isnt it great to be you? Its much easier being the person taking something from someone else than it is to be the one that has stuff taken from them.
Fortunately, our government recognizes the importance of the events of our past and has honored and respected what little pieces of land we have left. So, please think of us when your elementary children dont need to buy their textbooks or the school gets a new paint job. It very well may have been casino dollars that made it possible.
Be thankful its only a casino we put up. I voted for a brothel.

I partially agree with your comment about El Dorado Hills. The newer homes are an eyesore. Look at the development south of hiway 50 by Blue Shield. Those homes are horrible - they don't even look like homes. Just beige colored boxes all lined up in a row. Talk about living too close to your neighbor. The older homes in El Dorado Hills are very nice, such as Ridgeview etc. I will never understand how anyone could spend a million bucks for a home 10 feet from their neighbor.
I think Folsom is 10 times worse than El Dorado Hills, the homes up on the hill in that town look beyond hideous.
