I think you are ALL idiots that want a casino in th smallest state in the country!! We owe the Indians NOTHING. Life is survival of the fittest and has been for thousands of years. No other country feels the need to "pay back" those that could not hold onto their property due to being taken over by a stronger entity. Same on anyone that thinks these casinos are going to lighten your tax load. This will NOT happen and has not happened for almost 250 years. Wake up America.

I'm glad we all voted NO on #1. We owe the Narr. Indians NOTHING. Don't like the state laws or how things are handled?....pack it up and head to the mid west. I'm tired of seeing them not pay taxes, go to college for free and whine that they got screwed. F that! I do some service work at Foxwoods behind the scenes. They are all ignorant as well. Seeing 16 year old kids driving around in Lexus' and acting like people owe them something. Need a good ass whippin. We have two places to gamble in RI if you so desire. Better yet, save your gas and time and play online. Have your buddies over and play in the basement of your house. We didn't need a casino. I am a young man with a new family and I would love to make more money and buy my first house. That casino would have done nothing for me. America does need to wake up! Legalize marijuana on the next ballot!!!!!! It will help the world!!!!!

I am and have been a RI resident all my life. I don't know why my ISP location says CT. I believe it should be out of Warwick.

hello I just wanted to let you know why I and several people in the Bradford RI area will vote no in Nov.
I rented to 2 narragansetts Indians and there children I am a landlord and I was told if the couple should fall back and not pay there rent the tribe would help. well I had 5 months of hell
and 12 police reports and a mess when they finally left. and I talked to several members of the tribal council and twice I tried to talk to the chief. I got no where these people left owing me 2 months rent and a septic bill plus there half of the water bill and the mess they left my apt in was horrible I have pic's to prove this all total they owed me a little over 3000 dollars plus I was in danger of losing my home that I lived in for 18 yrs. the chief would not even return my calls so as of the end of this week I will be putting in the opinion page of all RI papers my story I will also be putting huge signs on my property saying vote no on the casino. also I am going to let other landlords know if they think that they will get their money when they rent. they are in for a nightmare. I am now behind in my mortgage because of these people. my family and me are disabled. I am also going to talk to the newspaper to see if they will run a human interest story so that everyone in RI knows what happen to me can happen to anyone in RI and I am not discrimating against the narragasetts. my mother is full blooded black foot Indian. I am also telling everyone I meet what they did to me. and it seems like the chief could care less that they left owing me money I had to go to court to win part of the money now I have to go back to court to win the other half. then to try to attach wages it has left me with the feeling it would be real bad to have a casino in RI with them. if you would like to see the pic's let me know.

Guess you really don't want to see another casino in Rhode Island, do you? Would you rather see one somewhere else, or are you just against casinos in general?

Hey Paul,

This reply has nothing to do with what you were discussing although you make a great point and support your views.

My name is Cesar Cadenas, even though you may not remember me by name; im sure youll remember me by face if I were still 12years old. We use to play little league baseball together at west side little league. I played for the Abes Bagles black and yellow uni's... Your team I cant recall the name but it was red and gray colors. Anyway I always remembered you since you were one of the three homeruns I gave up during the season. You hit a 70mph low fastball that balrely cleared the right-center field fence. A line drive that may have only gone 30 feet high but got out in a hurry. The other two homeruns I have up were to none other than Danny Wheeler who plays for my hometown Tampa Bay Rays. Iv been living in Florida now for 15yrs. I spoke to Danny wheeler during a home game and quite surprisingly he remembers many of you guys. He remembers the all-star game against the presidents team game.(I made the all-star team that year but was ill so Pat Brennan took my spot)
I remember Mike Shannon, Greg Towa, YOU, Steve Francis, greg lawny,Kevin Gorsky, I also remember your shortstop who missed the all-star team although he was really good.

Id love to hear from you.
