    There has been a stopping of guard dogs and pepper spray being used against native American groups trying to protest a pipeline project currently going through North Dakota. In the end it won't matter at all because those with financial backing can seemingly not be stopped. So what if it's sacred land or a burial ground. It's fossil fuels that we want and that's what we'll get.

    T.J. are you still saying nothing is wrong here? May be we can use some of our "drones" to kill these natives; right?

    Dutch you may have me confused with someone else. I think there is a lot wrong in this country. Not that I am saying that there's just things wrong with this country which I know there is.... it's the people inside this country.

    Money corrupts I know. It's not just the greedy that I have a problem with. It's the judges and govt. officials who give their blessing to greedy people digging up sacred indian grounds that I have a serious problem. Is it not enough that we killed a huge number of naitive American and stole their entire country. Now because someone wants to make a dollar over their burial grounds I feel like this can often be a heartless country. Let's make sure we protect the wealthy .1 % who already own far more than they should.

    I sometimes think that until we have killed the last Indian and taken their last dime, some won't be happy. I am far less proud to be an American than I used to be.

    Wow, I can't believe that something went right for once. The govt. said that they were reconsidering their previous decision. I don't know that it's a sign that a decision would be made in favor of the Indians but I'm hopeful that just maybe a decision will be made not based on the wealthy getting more wealth. Can someone perhaps be considering doing something because it's right ?

    Not that it belongs under this subject, but the Pence clown did disclose part of his taxes as governor of Indiana. He only paid an average of 10%. Wow, if you would have the same position in Europe you would pay at least 50 to 60%. But yeah we have to wait till doomsday before we see Trump's tax return.

    Yes it's off topic but most want to see Trumps taxes. We know he paid almost nothing but the wealth of information would include that he's not as successful as previously bragged about. Not charitable AT ALL !!!!!!!!!!!!

    He's a cheap non-giving self centered SOB and the taxes would show much of that. It's my guess that he'll release his taxes about 18 hours before the election. It may also show cash received from Russia. I've recently read that huge amounts of cash have been flowing from Russia into Trump properties. Trumps son has gained from that previously unpopular source. Yesterday he was on Russian TV with Larry King and later said he was tricked. If you don't have a staffer who can google who Larry King works for, you're sad and inept. I didn't think the Russian issue was worthy of another thread.

    Back to the American Indians. On msnbc yesterday, they said this has been a peaceful gathering of a wide mix of Indians fighting for a common theme. An assemblance like this hasn't been seen in over 100 years. Why can't common persons from all states agree that A. We've taken everything that we have (real estate) from them. B. We put them on insignificant plots of lands that were mismanaged at best. C. We've made them welfare projects to benefit the white's who got a zillion acres of mountains, plains, desert, lakes and rivers, Ocean front properties, Lumber, minerals, animals but mostly those zillion acres to form a nation upon. That should be seen as a wrong and an injustice no matter what state that you currently live in.

    Tony, as I said many times; it is time we care about this country; not use all our resources to fight unwanted wars, in order to fill the pockets of a few. Indians have rights too; probably more than we do.
