  1. Was never good in history or the sort.....so......

    Why is it that Indian nations within the U.S. pretty much govern themselves, make their own laws, and dont pay taxes? Is this al because they've been pushed around their land hundreds of years ago or some other reason? If it's the land issue, why are they the only ones that get all these benefits and special treatment still?

    Also, should this "special" treatment last forever? Wouldn't telling the Indians welcome to the real world and time to play by the rules/laws that 90 whatever % of the rest of the country plays by benefit more people than it would be a detriment to?

    P.S. - I'm sure my questions are going to come off as ignorant and/or racist, but they are serious as I really don't understand this relationship / treatment.

  9. Last I checked this was an off topic message board consisting of primarily modernized, corporatized, westernized, packaged and prepared for delivery, generally affluent males in the age range of 20-45 who don't know fucking dick about history besides the filtered and laced horseshit they were fed and forgot about 10 fucking years ago. But admitting this fact would make us look stupid and ignorant so we attack this man, we berate this man, we kill this man who questions us. Fuck that guy.

  11. I dont hate the indians, but it seems these "priveleges" are an overall detriment to society......jobs, competitive business, etc.

  16. Indian = En Dios = what Columbus called the people he found to be in a state of nature, or with god.

    Many tribal people prefer American Indian to Native American.

    As to the OP, mostly due to treaties we signed and have yet to fully ignore/violate. Also, or the average person on a reservation, living under these "privileges" you so begrudge them, most live in poverty unrivaled outside of small parts of Appalachia.

  17. lol this is in no way a plattsburgh-eligible thread. i can't believe even old school OTers have a hard time with this...and why the hell are people so obsessed with handing out PB points? powda (where's he been?) or bigearn have it on lock.

    Very true. Most "En Dios" do not have any property rights on the reservations and the governing councils tend to be rife with corruption.

  21. the PB is for the chronicly helpless OTer...someone who constantly asks for help or advice with the mundane. stuff that has many different options and so the OP needs help deciding because he/she is truly helpless.

    not someone who asks one question that can easily be answered by a simple internet search. these are the people who should be shamed and told to gtfo

  22. What seems to be even worse than my 1 question that can be answered by a Wiki search, is the fact of how many people dont recognize that there is a bunch of questions in the OP and most are , hey what are others opinions on some of this.

  23. the point is we won't know if they are chronically doing it unless we leave points behind to track it later, human memory sucks

    so if the dude doesn't do it the rest of the year he won't amass many points
