ecmoRandomNumbers: SpdrJay: The people in Arizona should use the money to buy some Mayan pyramids!

They are just tearing the hell out of them down in South America.

ORLY? Where in South America?


Belize. The limestone and some other rock that makes up the pyramid is being used to make roads.

Anyways, good on the tribe. We honkies may have been colossal dick for 400 years, but it's good that either side of that coin sees the other as a member of the community and helps out.

ModernLuddite: The Choctaw tribe donated money to the Irish.

In 1847.

This was soon after the Trail of Tears.

Now that's a mindfark.

Kumana Wanalaia: So we can't raise taxes one cent because Soshalizm, but it's okay to let casinos (regardless of who runs them) bleed suckers dry.

I don't like it, no sir, not one bit.


Taxes are mandatory, once they are written into law. Going into a casino is voluntary. No one is being legally forced to go into a casino and spend their money there.

vudukungfu: Just Another OC Homeless Guy: ecause robbery = voluntary giving.

Your honor. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury. My client never said he had an INTENT to do any real physical damage to the plaintiff. He merely said, "I have a gun" which is a god given right and constitutional right afforded to every American. He merely gestured with his hand which was indeed wrapped around a bag of skittles in the pocket of his Ambercrombie and Fitch hoodie, a popular raiment of our society's haute couture. He simply asked the plaintiff for some spare change. He never intended to imply any real threat to the plainiff, who could have spent his life working on his physique, rather than becoming the pasty, basement dwelling creature we all know has been mooching off of his mother for his entire adult life. My client only required bus fare and asked a neighbor if he could help out in his time of need. No more then the plaintiff would have ordinarily dropped in the collection plate of his local church... If he ever bothered to go to CHURCH. But he didn't. No. The plaintiff was exiting the local Good Times PORNOGRAPHY STORE when he was approached by my client, a simple community organizer, who, as a naturalized citizen from the up and coming country of Kenya, which is, as all of you jurors know, is the natural birthplace of our great president, and who has sworn allegiance to our country, unlike the plaintiff, when he was simple asked for a helping hand. I ask you, good members of the court, is this the face of a common thug? Or is this the face of the newest acquired member of the tenor society of the Broward County Community Baptist Church's Choir??
The defense  rests, your honor.


Uh.... wow. That is....

What I mean is....

Ummm....

Er... did you really waste what looks like could be 15 minutes thinking that up and typing it>

Hmmmmm....

fanbladesaresharp: SearchN: You guys are all looking at this the wrong way.

Tribal Casino donates money to the county and school system. Increases over all earning potential for students further in life. That monies coming back.

Tribal Casino donates money for recreational complex, bringing in more traffic to the city/area.. Which is near the Casino. Money is coming back.

Exactly. Money is just part of a cycle and they are forward-thinking with it. Now all the honkeys are getting in an uproar because they got smart with their money and break the stereotypes that have been held for so long.


Plus, if they wanted to, people in various states could vote to legalize gambling so that everyone could open casinos. But they don't, which makes it very stupid to piss and moan about other people making money doing something you could be doing but are choosing not to even though it has very few negative consequences. Oh wait, but I forgot, some people's religion says it is bad so they should piss and moan forever that other people are doing things they don't want them to and lightning isn't striking them dead and in fact they're either making a lot of money, being entertained, or being old and eating at a buffet which I guess is entertainment if you get old enough.

I'm just glad for the school - now that they've had a one time cash infusion they can find some additional ways to spend money instead of having to address the systematic problems with their yearly budget.

Speaking of comma/period Nazis, how about some love for the apostrophe?

Native Americans land/resources/lives

Native Americans' land/resources/lives

traylor: wademh: traylor: natmar_76: gameshowhost: For you Europeans, that works out to 10.000.000,00.

/.... you stupidheads and your comma|decimal issue

It's like they're intentionally trying to be different.
"WE'LL JUST REVERSE EVERYTHING!"

Wikipedia lists 40 countries using the point, 64 countries using the comma for separating the decimals. Also, "10.000.000,00" does not make any sense in places where the point is not used to note the thousand separator.

Moreover, 7.4 million + 2.6 million does not necessarily equal 10,000,000.00 (most probably not). The last decimal digit is supposed to be rounded. When you say 7.4 million it can be anywhere between 7,350,000 and 7,449,999. OTOH when you write 10,000,000.00 it is expected to be between 9,999,999.995 and 10,000,000.004.

Why can't you just say ten million? Oh I see, you gotta be different.

Now let's discuss American Billion versus British Billion

Let's discuss Tiffany Million instead.
