The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation owns the Foxwoods Resort Casino in southeastern Connecticut, but back in 2008 when the economy took a down turn, the tribe didn't have enough money to meet its obligations to members of the tribe and they defaulted on a couple of loans. Now they are begging the federal government for bailout money to make up for casino losses.
Are you friggin' kidding me? The whole purpose of the 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act was to allow federally recognized tribes to become self-sufficient.
I'm sorry but it's been what, 500-600 years since white Europeans brought guns, liquor, and syphilis to the America's. Isn't it about time for lazy, drunk Indians to get over that and assimilate into society like all other minorities have managed to do?
They can't even get rich with a casino for heaven's sake. That's like hitting the lottery. How inept and incompetent do you have to be fail to make money with a money-making machine?
