    The money from the casinos goes to the Tribal Elders, not the rest of the tribe individually. Like all dictatorships the wealth flows to the leadership while the rank and file continue to live in poverty.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    The Scandinavian people claim America was discovered by Vikings and not Columbus. The difference is that when Columbus discovered it it stayed discovered.

    This was the beginning of the pacification and civilization of the Americas. A great moment in history.

    The lunatics here in DC are self-haters and have declared this day to be Indigenous Peoples Day.

    That is like giving Olympic athletes the Gold medal for coming in second place.

    Columbus should be considered a great man. The history surrounding him has been perverted by political correctness.

    OK, so the elders are happy.

    I am fine with that.

    True.

    The Viking presence in North America is very intriguing.

    Absolutely. North America was not at its potential with Stone Age dead-enders in the way.

    The US is the global super power and poised to colonize the moon and Mars. The native Americans would still be migrating across the great planes looking for food if we hadn't intervened.

    Spot on.

    No racial or ethnic group (that we know of, anyway) is indigenous to this continent.

    Or to the European or Asian continents either, for that matter. The ancestors of every human being living today were in Africa prior to 60-70,000 years ago.
