"We are no longer citizens of the United States of America and all those who live in the five-state area that encompasses our country are free to join us,'' long-time Indian rights activist Russell Means said.


Native American have one of the highest social entitlements populations (Welfare, food stamps, WIC, SSI etc), so I guess this mean we no longer have to pay for them or offer them social or economic services. I'm not saying the white man has done everything right by the Indian so if you want to go, then go. Just don't come looking for any of my tax dollars. Which interestingly they are going to be a tax free nation. I guess they hope that there casino's will pay for their social services and infrastructure upkeep.

Yeah, this just a plea for attention and a chance to bash us. If the treaties haven't been honored, what makes them think we'll treat them any better after they withdraw if the USA is so awful. Probably won't have open warfare on them like last time.

Maybe they think Chavez will give them money like he sends to prop up Cuba.

The Lakota Indians may have withdrawn from treaties signed with the U.S., 150 years ago, but the Seminole Indians, I believe, have never signed a peace treaty with the U.S., so--unofficially--their war with the U.S. still goes on. This has reprecussions even today. Once when some Seminoles shot up a man's car, and he tried to collect from his insurance company to pay for the damages, the insurance company said (to paraphrase): "Sorry. This was an act of war, and therefore is not covered under your insurance policty."

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
