I feel it is there right let them..I also think a state casino would make the playing field even

Thank God we still have some Republicans who have a moral standard, and the brains to know a state casino is a bad idea.

The casinos are the best way to pay for the Vikings Stadium

I don't understand why it took since 1855 to protest about this but I say let them fish. Minnesota has bigger issues at the moment...say like...umm...the budget and a government shutdown?? Just saying...

Those Indians should have been rounded up and put in concentration camps. Oh, wait; they already were put in concentration camps.

but I do agree that it is high time that we ended the Native American monopoly of casino gambling in Minnesota. Won't happen now while the DFL has a lock on the legislature but the time will come. Then the natives can hunt,fish, drill and cut all they want since no one will be in their casinos'.

I scoff at how they are brought back to light as if one side is guiltless. Gullible media, citizens, and government. I say let them fish too, like everyone else who HAS to SHARE this land. None of us are responsible for the sins of the past. Some of us do not even have ancestors who took part in any of this, but yet know only America. Times do change, it's called reality and sometimes its for the worst, but honestly, usually it's for the best. Work together to conserve and preserve, and we can all take a resonable and fair share of them.
