Any money the state gets from this bride/deal you will never see. It will all go to Albany and to NYC. Albany need to keep their hands out of our local area. The only person winning here is Albany. And yes the oneida nation brings jobs we normally do not have because of Albany over taxing us and pushing jobs out of NY. All on NY's business owners know this. The Indians doante alot of hard cash to schools and such which is documented, but greedy albany wants more.

And on this note with the Oneida Indian nation. Do you know why they are the only sovereign Indian nation? They are the only ones who stood with us during the Revolution in New York, Thank Washington.

The Casino hasn't got a penny of my money since they opened the doors 20 years ago. If I had my way, they'd all be back on the Res. growing ditch weed with one cheap-assed Bingo hall.

yeah they donate to schools but not for what u think. They donate for their own private buses and Indian class rooms. They segregate themselves. And walk around like we r being racist when in fact it's them. They only donate when it's to their benifit.

jealous, of what? Racist. Nah I am actually 1/2 Indian. My family worked hard for what we have and I wouldn't change my upbringing for nothing. Not even that measly $4000 a mnth the free loaders get. We didn't live in the trailer park on welfare until Ray rescued us. We built farms and BOUGHT our land!

The OIN have gotten this far by playing the game. If you are sore about it, well you better start learning the game. They deserve everything they have. It's not like they love the fact that their business is vice, but all those slot sluts occupying space in the casino seem to not care much at all. The only negativity I hear is racism, rumors, and hate. If you don't like this deal, write to your representative not Topix.

Without the Casino what is left around here ?
Answer: NOTHING !
Everyone has an opinion but 99% of you have been to the casino and it is high class for sure !
Good job Ray .
there it is in a nutshell. you actually call the freakin' indian gamblin hall "high class"....the place where blue haired, wrinkled up old prunes sit at video screens for hours on end puking their social security checks and sh!tting their pants. doesn't get much classier.

If I had it my way the non natives would go back on the boat and sail back to Europe with their rats, rapes, plagues and religious prosecutions (How's that for racist it sounds different when someone else is saying it, I really don't mean that, just putting it in a different perspective).
