Just like any new president, you can't change things over nite, it takes time. Obama is still good and still has my vote.

I respect you opinion and vote, but please, please, can you site one thing Obama has done for the private sector to promote growth, or to curb Federal spending, or to start paying down the debt.

Unable to determine where Mitt Romney stands on any issues, except keep taxes low for upper class, and he does not explain how he would fix the economy and create jobs.

Tribe gets 300,000 grant and matches it 300,000 for the popcorn plant. If it was managed right it would make money, of course the white people working there get the big pay check, while the tribal members get low pay. The guy managing don't know what the hell he's doing. Where is the tribe getting 300,000 to match, I thought the tribe was broke. Only a select few working for the tribe get full employee benefits, others get the shaft, I bet the chairmans relatives working for the tribe get full benefits, even the janitors. Others who actually put in a full work day are told the tribe can't afford it, if that's the case the council should take a pay cut, over paid for what little they do besides raise their hand in agreement with what the chairman wants.

Agree with Rezzed. Tribal members and reservation will not see any benefit from $600K being pumped into this popcorn factory. Heiss boys still get big pay right off the top, any new profits from production and marketing will go in general fund, general fund is chairman's personal cash for spending money, any time he wants a check, they sign one for him.

What about the rest of the Salazar money? Should be at least $12M left of that. The council endured a few weeks of protesting and gave out a little per cap, the members got their little checks, now it's all forgotten. Council still won't tell tribal members the plan for the rest of the money.
