'Did I hear you say 10 percent of US's energy resources are on Native lands?'
Now wait a minute. Tell me, how do any resources on our lands get tallied up as a percentage of someone else's resources?
Well, let me tell you how …
First, it happens through blatant theft. That’s theft pulled off through fraud and extortion...with a little religion thrown in.
Then we get the same theft continuing with a penny on the dollar's worth thrown at an impoverished people and/or their corrupt leaders to, somehow, legitimize the theft.
And then we get to where the bought and paid for among us wheel and deal our resources away for a fast buck with those claiming to be "tribal leaders" calling it economic development or worse; calling our resources not ours at all but rather the resources of the nation that has stolen almost everything we hold dear and essentially pledging our resources to make America proud of us.
