It's sad, but the stores aren't on the reservation, so the ban doesn't apply to them. If the tribe wants to do something about it, they could do like the rehab center lady suggests and set up contraband and DUI checkpoints on the road to that town.

rmoody: Hey, is this the thread were we blame addicts for their disease and look down on them while making dog whistle comments about their race?

hdhale: The reverse mortgage thing isn't usury per se, but if you think you're getting money for nothing, wait until your heirs find out that the house they thought they'd get to sell and divide up the proceeds on doesn't belong to them and instead all the equity was blown on trips to Vegas, beer, and the all-you-can-eat steak joint across town the past 15 years.*


Screw the heirs, it wasn't their money. They have no claim until the actual owners of the money are dead. If they (the real owners) decide they would rather spend it making their final years on earth better for themselves, good for them.

Shut down the stores. Next year the tribe will go after all the stores in Rapid City since that will be the next place they will drive to to get their beer. After Rapid City Chamberlain will be shut down, then Mitchell, Pierre, Huron, Yankton, Vermillion, and every town in between. Four years down the road they will tell Sioux Falls that they will need to to stop selling beer. Then it gets personal cause I will not go without my beer.

This. Since it's not in their land, they can only do so much. Then again there's people that just love to take jabs at 'em.

Hey, if they can make people fall into that, call it justice.
