Since the SNI Casino in Salamanca was built one must look at the history of the SNI complying with the gaming compact. The results are clear when they wish they forget what they signed-they withold agreed upon proceeds. The same will happen up in Buffalo as they will stiff the city just like they did Salamanca. Later when asked by the State they will again say the State violated the compact when they did not. The past history indicates that after the casino is built and the compact signed that later the SNI will run Buffalo into the ground just like Salamanca. They say obey the treaty when it benefits them-any small to them infraction in their mind-boom they do what they want. Tell them NO! Their word is NOT GOOD.....

If it wasn't for the casino in Salamanca there'd be not as many "jobs" as there is now...it's pretty much all the sad town of Salamanca has left...

And just what qualifies you to determine if the compact was broken by nys or not? The results are clear that the state has indeed violated the compact or it wouldn't have even made it to arbitration if there was even the possibility that they hadn't violated. The casino in buffalo has been up and running for years now so where you been? Oh yeah down in sandford, no where near here. And past history also indicates that any tribes that entered into treaties with the government can expect those same treaties to be broken. People are moved from their homelands, tribes are dissolved and who is it that does as they please? And if our word is no good as you say, you have to wonder where we learned that from.

It really sucks when you do something "moronic" when calling someone else a "moron," doesn't it?

There is currently a temporary casino that is running in the city of Buffalo, as the SNI stopped building the mega casino because they said money problems, along the same time members were caught taking from the till!
The the SNI stated the the State were in violation of the compact by opening a racino in Hamburg and other parts of the state but kept the mini casino open in Buffalo, and that they would not build the mega casino until the state closed these racinos, well they haven't been closed and it appears the SNI are going to restart the building of the mega casino in Buffalo? How about the exposed metal, will it need to be torn down or is it still stable?

Listen Gomer, the SNI stated that they have not given up on the site for a permanent mega casino and there were concerns, a year a go about the steel beams that have been left in the elements for such a long time but at that time structural engineers stated the steal should be fine but not to leave them in the elements for a long time or it will break down, understand that Junior Gomer DUMB ASS!

Red face? Too bad you weren't good at reasoning as you are at being a rascist PUSSY-cat. Now go crawl in your kitty box like a a good little kitty and leave these discussions for the adults.
If anyone has a hand out we would all be to blame considering that the Senecans have given millions to the city which has been squandered away on useless projects with very little projections as far as job growth and profitability.
Examples would be Main Street Buffalo and Main Street Niagara Falls which has lost much of its glitter and robust and would need a major CPR to revive it.
If you don't like there business then keep your hands in your pockets instead of your hands out.

since everyone wants to screw the indians how about taking back the land downtown and making a huge welfare project for all the scum who complain about no jobs and continue to stay on welfare generation after generation.the mayor could put in a anchor for the waterfront which would be a food bank and have a block or two for drive by shootings.the board of education could also locate there and have a school that has real low expectations for future welfare kids who will replace their aging welfare granmas

it's funny how mayor brown was all for the casino several years back when the city took their money for the land.now that they stole the money from the seneca nation they want to throw them under the bus.this is an obama tactic the mayor picked up while kissing large butt at the whitehouse super bowl game party
