You tell them April & most of us Native American Indians don't receive any checks or Gov aide. We never aked Whitey to pilage, rape, kill our people or take our land, we didn't invite them over, but once they came we did show them how to survive so they wouldn't starve to death. BIG Mistake... Even most of the ones on reservations don't get checks, so whitey don't know crap, I've already told him before to take a history lesson. I do taxes for a living & guess what, I have plenty of customers that have been Big Winners there. He's not there every day, so how would he know?  (Nov 12, 2010 | post #106)

Indians dont receive Gov. hand outs you fool. The Bia, which is a Gov agencey takes 80% of what you might think goes to Gov handouts. Then the remainder of that is maybe spent on educating poor indian children on deplorable reservations. You need a history lesson or something and what the indians are supposed to recieve is in the treaty from when whitey stole their land. They promised to provide them with exceptable living conditions. Take a look at a rez a real rez. those aren't exceptable living conditions and for those of indians not on rez we have to work our butts off just like whitey and the rest of the world. Get a clue and a history lesson. You know nothing.  (Jul 31, 2010 | post #94)

I agree with amused, you said a mouth full. And if you don't have the money it's your responsibility not to go, just like it's your responsibility not to do unneccessaery shopping at wal-mart if you don't have the money and people still do, is wal-mart reapomsible for that? I think not. Haven't been herer in a while, this my busy season for my business. But you keep them in line amused.  (Jan 9, 2010 | post #74)

It's no racism to it, read your history, it's facts. The Native Indians didn't have Beer until the white man came and introduced. What's racist about stating well documented facts. Ya'll sound like the racist. Have you ever seen any of the reservations, I mean real reservations in places like Arizona. So if you don't know your history or even the current situation of the Native Americans then how can you call me racist. I'm 1/2 Indian and 1/2 White, but I don't deny what the white ancestors did to the Indians. Unlike ya'll. I know the facts from old white people who actually lived among the Indians in tepees. Not racist, facts, dipwad. I don't normally resort to name calling unlike yourself. But since you've opened that can of worms, I have a number of names for people like ya'll. Theives, traders and on and on. What do you think the Indians gave them the land just because the white man was so friendly. You should visit a real reservation some day and see the deplorable conditions our Govn. has put them in, via the "Treaty" (what a joke). They don't hold up to even a portion of what they were supposed to. People in the Third world have it as good as or better. Atleast for them we have commercials for people to help them in other countries. So get your head out and get caught up to real facts. Not racism. Actually ya'll sound like the racist close minded pigs.  (Sep 2, 2009 | post #66)

Atleast they give a hotline number for help, do you see that on the side of alcohol, NO, the white man introduced and got the Native American Idians hooked on alcohol back when the white man first invaded this country, do you see them offering hotline numbers on their BEER commercials, NO. Atleast the Casinos offer help, more than the white man does.  (Aug 19, 2009 | post #61)

We don't do that to our children, THAT was my point the children suffer!!! And the point is you have to be responsible for your own actions. The father who spends all of his money and time on video games is no better than a drug addict. So if you get rid of gambling you don't think an addictive personality is going to replace it with something else as unhealthy or worse. They still are not going to take the money home to their families where it belongs. Don't call me a piece of work, I hold myself responsible for anything I do, and my child. Other people don't and they want to blame the Casino's. So is the game video game makers fault that SOME father's treat their children that way. NO, no more than it's the casino's fault, or the beer makers fault that the public isn't considerate or don't take responsibility. I am not that kind of person, I know where every penny of our money goes and goes straight to the household. This seems to be a "Not my fault society", and everyone wants to blame the casinos, the video game makers, the alcohol makers. No one makes these people spend their money unwisely. So get it right. Mine all stays in the household or for my child and our College educations. BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN ACTIONS.No one can do it for you!!!  (Aug 19, 2009 | post #60)

So drug money holds your town up, I live in a smaller town than Eufaula, and we have a LOT of drug dealers matter of fact we've been considered the drug vein from Dallas to Ok City by 20/20, 60 min., night line, but Drugs are illegal unlike Casinos, and what about the people that spend their last dollar on a stupid Lotto ticket, those kind of people will spend their last buck on anything except what they should, even if there weren't Casinos. As far as the smoke goes, like I said before, you can smoke in Bars, Clubs and lots of restaraunts, if you don't want smoke, simpily don't go where they can smoke, once again it's the individuals responsibility as to what they expose theirselves to. Like, I can't stand the smell of alcohol, so guess what, I don't go to bars. Simple. I see people in the stores, I know, they don't have a spit tune to piss in, but they will sure scrape up a couple of bucks to buy a lotto instead of something useful. How many people actually win on those? This society today is a "Not my fault" generation. If you don't have it to play, then its your responsibility to not play. Seriously how much money is wasted on Alcohol and you want to complain about gambling, atleast the Casino gives you a hotline number for people with gambling problems. Do you see any phone numbers on the sides of alcohol for alcoholics to call with their problem. NO THEY don't want you to get help ever.RESPONSIBILIT Y for your own actions. Grow up. Be real.  (Jul 30, 2009 | post #57)

You can smoke in a bar or club and they don't fall under alot of the White Gov laws. Plus the last I knew you can smoke at Bingo places too. So what is the difference on gambling your money away or the father that makes $16 hr and blows on Video game console at a couple hundred dollars and then continues to blow it on $60 a game instead on his children and he don't spend time with his kids because all of his games are adult games and he's on them all the time he's home. You have to be responsible for your own actions and if you're an addict taking away gambling they will only replace it with another addiction, like maybe DRUGS or acohol. That doesn't do the families any good, atleast with gambling as small as the chance may be, they may actually get some return on the inv. unlike drugs, acohol, or video games. You have to control yourself in all aspects of life. We are responsible for our own actions, be real.  (Jul 10, 2009 | post #52)

For one people who gamble are not uneducated or stupid. I gamble once in a Blue Moon and I know my limits. I am probably more educated than you ever thought of being. I am a computer programmer, Electronic engineer technician, a certified tax preparer/ office manager, certified landscaper and aquatic scaper, and a certified medical transcriptionist. And gambling unlike drugs are legal in the state of Oklahoma. What about the people who buy lotto tickets instead of milk. Or what about the people who give their children too much soda and junk food. Thats stupid and do you think that a person who would spend their last $10 grocery money on gambling, if gambling wasn't available wouldn't spend it on something else useless to the home, like alcohol, sodas, candy, drugs, other crap thats NOT groceries. And how do you think and what makes you an authority to what the Choctaws deserve. What did they ever do to you? You're probably White, and your people stole from all of the Indians to begin with. And if the Gov. ever held up to their treaties with our people maybe the indians wouldn't need to have such business'. Don't hear you gripping about Donald Trump, who has lots of casinos that I'm sure take plenty of peoples money. So what did the Choctaws ever do to you. They do help other tribes that do live in poor houses in other states. They have no running water, no electricity, no way of heating in the winter, no transportation and had their land stolen by the white man and put on land so far from civilization, that can't hardly get to school or get jobs, their average yrly income is only about $3500. So maybe you should get educated. And you probably sit infront of the tv or computer playing games. Whats the difference, you paid for the game and the electric to run it, money down the drain  (Jun 11, 2009 | post #42)

We went just the other weekend and stayed at the hotel and resort, had a great time. We took a hundred dollars just to gamble on and had a blast all weekend. I won a number of times over three days in a row, my husband and wound up breaking even we left with our hundred dollars and an entire weekend of gambling and the salt water pool was more than great especially at night. And a guy on a machine behind us only spent about $60 and won $1098. Gambling is called gambling for a reason and if you're gonna do it you have to know your own limits. You don't always win. It was great  (Jun 10, 2009 | post #41)

And if you knew your history you would know if it weren't for the Native American Indian language the Japanese would be ruling this country as far as the US Army protecting us goes. My husband is Indian also and he's also a Vet. Do you think only (other) people serve our Military. Look up the war with Japan  (May 19, 2009 | post #37)

We already paid our Tax, when the White man STOLE our country, and put our people on worthless land when we befriended them instead of killing them straight off the boats  (May 19, 2009 | post #36)

They do give some of the gambling money to the Indians after all of the overhead, but do you know how many reservations there are in our great country. These that have the opportunity to have Casinos are fortunate. There are Rez in Arizona and other states that are deplorable. They have no elec. no phones, no running water even tho they sit on water because our Gov. doesn't give them mineral rights, so they have to travel often miles and miles to Community wells, hope they get there early enough or that one will be dry, then they have to drive more miles to fill the lg 55 gal barrels with water, OH I'm sorry the majority of these people have no vehicles, their average income is only about $3,500 per yr.They don't get food stamps and stuff, because you have to have physical address for that they have a rez add. or a community address. They are so far from everything that many of their children don't get schooled,teen suicide rate is astronomical, alot of them have nothing to burn for winter to stay warm, other than their own trash or the wood from their homes. Meanwhile Arizona Pipes the water the rez sits on to the nearest regular communities, you know to water their yards, take a shower, wash their cars. You ever get the chance look up online the show In 30 Days put in their reservations, I think it was navajoe. They can't have casinos, they have no water. Electricity. They do help their own and the ones with casinos help them but their are about 11 or so rez just in Az. and more in SD ND NM that are in poverish. Only to name a few that don't have these luxuries. We wouldn't allow people to live out here the way they have to live. CPS or some Elder group would've stepped in long before now.  (May 19, 2009 | post #35)

I do taxes every year and I have plenty of people that have won thousands a year. My neighbor even wins $100 or so a week. So you can't say no body wins there. Theey can't use the money to fix the Highways because the highways are the states problem not the Indians.  (May 16, 2009 | post #33)
