So I guess the nation that controls the turning stone is a little upset about casinos in New York State. Fair enough, I mean it does have the potential to hurt their business. But aren't they always claiming they are sovereign? Why worry about what we are doing. Control your own little nation there and don't worry about what we may do. Personally I like the turning stone but this just seems a little hypocritical to me.

The white man pretty much made a holocaust of the Native American race. I say they deserve to have exclusive rights to casinos in NYS.

And also this is Cuomo's idea for getting NYS back in the black. Gambling. That's his grand plan. What a complete failure as a governor. He can't figure out any other way to create jobs. How about not taxing the hell out of businesses? No wonder no companies want to operate in this state. Nice friendly environment to work in.

Not to mention the inevitable ban on hydrofracking. This state disgusts me.

Throughout history nations have come and gone. Just the way it is.

Ya know, I've got nothing against the Oneidas. I've got nothing against the Turning Stone. But these "reparations" really are something. They already got all the land and sovereign status. They got the freedom to operate something for years that none of the rest of us were allowed to legally do. Now you're saying we owe them a guarantee of no competition? Screw that. Let's all open casinos on every corner and let the free market decide who succeeds.

Or we could just block the entrances to the casino using our roads. No one gets through on US soil.
Like you, I have nothing against them, it's just they play the "special status" and "sovereign" card when it benefits them. They tell us to stay out of their affairs. Fine, and we do. Stay the f out of ours.
