    Why do you say this is His Flatulence's action?

    As an aside, I fucking hate casinos.

    This is ruthless though.

    Both could be true.

    Because of his history of being petty and vindictive. Using his position to fuck with people he was in conflict with before is certainly not out of character for him. However the part you pointed out would indicate that he at the very least did not initiate this. Had some influence on it? Maybe, but not his creation. My mistake.

    The article implies Trump's deeper and relevant involvement. Trump got involved to keep the Senate from passing a law to provide what I think would have been Federal protection to keep the reservation. Currently, the tribe wasn't recognized in 1934, so that is what the court case was about. The bill in Congress last year would have addressed that.

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), slamming her yet again as “Pocahontas.”
    This would have made the Court decision null as it would have no longer required that the tribe have recognition via the 1934 Act.

    Reservations should not have a special status anyway. Indians should pay all the taxes regular Americans pay, and not have any special treatment before the law.
    So-called "tribal sovereignty" is a scam. They want to be part of US when it suits them, but claim "sovereignty" to get special treatment. It should be either in or out, not whatever suits them best in any particular instance.

    Oh yeah, the native American population gets SUCH special treatment from the invaders. Why don't you go back to where your ancestors came, Derec? Because might makes right?

    Who are Indiana you are talking about? These are Native Americans, not people from India. It may also be worth reading up on the complicated relationship the government has with Native Americans that has led us to this point.

    And if you think Native Americans really have it so good... well... I suppose we can’t expect you to learn.
