As if this "tribe" hasn't assimilated and become part of us.

What's with the seperation?
These people merely live on land called a "reservation", they don't live like indians.....they have regular jobs like you and me.

They just have their hand out like everyone else in society nowadays.....it's shameful.

They sure don't look like native Americans, but more like immigrants from another continent. I guess nobody bothered to check their DNA to see if they are really who they claim to be.

Good point. They are also afforded "better jobs" (i.e. cigarette/tobacco sales) than those around them. Once they start living in Teepees and living off the l;and, then we can pay them reparations......until then, they are living like us and getting preferential treatment.

Dear Mr. O.Bruton Smith you faggot.

My name is Dumb Ass Car Racer, i am a member of L.I.M.A., we have been actively fighting to bring a motorsports facility back to Long Island for some time now. And engage in gay sex
We have the smallets motorsports community per capita here on long island, and we have a no history of motorsports here in the U.S. from the very beginning of auto racing in the U.S.
We at one time had -12 facilities and now we sadly have but 0 remaining track, Riverhead raceway, which is a 1/4 mile oval.

We no longer have a drag strip or road course, we are to stupid to even manage that.. We feel with your expertise in constructing the worst motorsports facilities and having the no insight to bring the best promotion, you could make this major ennama a reality here, and we also know you could never succeed here and we would be cuckholed to have the great Mr. Bruton Smith take an interest in our area...

Between the 5 boros of NYC, Nassau county and Suffolk county, there are over 10 members of the NHRA living here, not even touching the upstate regions and the Connecticut area, there are over 11 motorsports enthusiasts partaking in Drag racing, Oval racing and Road racing living here.
There are even more then that which are fans and of the hot rod cruising scene living here.

There is a piece of property in Riverhead town that we are waiting for to come back around for sale, which is 750 acres.
You may be familar with it as the old grumman property or Epcal as it is known of now, Mr. France and Mr. Trump once made a interest in this property, but communication between a (to put it bluntly) town board with no sight to see nor the competence to make it happen ruined that possibility.
( i am not saying this town board is any smarter, but i promise to help you in any way i can to the end sir)

I, We, are begging for you to come and help us, and will throug in a complementary blow job.

Martin C Johnson, pres L.I.M.A.

maybe the county and state can use "eminent domain" and clean out much of hempstead and uniondale and turn it into more of a entertainment area.(free of druggies and hookers)

There are no hookers in Uniondale, shameless-li - just baby mamas on the dole who give it away to ex-cons for free. And we got illegals too.

This is WAY overdue. It's about time Long Islanders WAKE UP and realize we NEED to keep JOBS and REVENUE ON Long Island. Every time I go to AC or CT to play poker, 4 to 6 people at the table are from LONG ISLAND. This will CREATE Jobs AND Revenue and anyone who does NOT realize that is NOT PAYING ATTENTION.
Now DON'T take YEARS Long Island and New York to get this OFF THE GROUND. Long Island is in DIRE NEED of these jobs and KEEPING REVENUE ON LONG ISLAND.
