What are you talking about? Why post that without outlining the details. Hold on, I'll try and read your mind.

Yeah and they are having the Batavia show at the Holiday Inn. Last time I stayed at a Holiday Inn they only left one mint on the pillow...Can't believe Cat is going there, I know I won't be going ;)

The Indians have a land claim against areas they orignally owned in onieda county. They have a casino which makes millions and many gas stations, selling gas 10-15 cents less then neighboring stations, has a lot of people pissed off. I'm going to look at sleds.

Hey we have the same deal here in the north country, Hogansburg is the indian reserve, sell cheap gas and cigs, and have a casino. I go there to get gas... doesn't mean I have to hang out there.

Not been much trouble there in the last few years anyway, kinda quieted down some.

All I know, is that if I found a gas station selling gas 10-15 cents cheaper, I wouldn't be bitching, I would be gassing up !!! At 10 mpg which is what my truck gets, I could by an extra sled with the savings. They are going to do it, so you might as well take advantage of it.

I live 3 miles from the casino. This indian issue is a long story here in Oneida. I also run over 80 convenience stores in upstate ny and i live in the land claim. No taxes are paid for any of the sales of Cigs and Gas. Our average store sells around 250 cartons per week. The nations sells over 25,000. They have purchased property throughout the County and They pay NO land taxes after the purchase...My taxes continue to rise. They are out of controll. I will probably go only because it's my only chance to see the new sleds.

yeah it is a little more of a drive,i will make it worth my while and fill er up when i'm there.the only problem is if i bring my old lady again ,i'm afraid she is going to cost me another couple of hundred on the slot machines.and your right why only make the blue collar guy pay the majority of the taxes make every one pay no more free hand outs for every jackass who claims they were wronged hundreds of years ago.

Unfortunately thats the way things go. I speak for my native tribe in MI. The tribe I belong to owns over 6 casinos around the state of MI. Gas is cheaper and products are cheaper on reservation land. This was part of the agreements that were negotiated by your state and federal governments. Is it wrong? to some yes to others no. I look at what the nation did to many tribes around the country many years ago. Yuck!!! Now that many tribes are fighting back with a way to survive, many communities dont see it as, helping draw tourists, putting money back into the community, or helping with education among the tribe and community. All that many small communities look at is the $$$$$. To bad. I support my tribe and hope that you all have an opportunity to listen to the tribe at town meetings and speak up. Many are willing to support local ideas. Our's does.

I doubt they're worried too much about whats fair.......Nobody can argue that they have been treated way less than fair in the past.
