My sister-in-law told me about her brother running for a position in a certain AZ county with a very high Navajo population. He is a Republican. He switched to Democrat to run because, in her words:
“They can’t read and only look for the “D” next to the name and then cast their vote.”
Wonder if that is much the same with this county.
... and close to 100% dependent on free Obama Money.
They cant read and only look for the D next to the name and then cast their vote... Sounds like many voters in Boston, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, etc...
Before I read the list, my choice was Prince George’s County, which came in at #4.
or Southern PG County, aka Charles County, MD
I live in Osage Co, OK....
I had a guy come to my door running for District Attorney....He sounded very Conservative...but I asked him what Party he was...and he told me Dim. I said, I wouldn't vote for him. He said...he couldn't get elected as a Pubbie.
He lost. And now works for the Osage Tribe.
No surprise here...Obama got the uneducated vote!
I just checked the XXXX County list of Superior Court Judges and... yep, the Honorable (except for lying about party affiliation) Judge XXXX J. XXXXX indeed won.
#5. Jefferson County, Mississippi (89%), by the Mississippi River south of Vicksburg.
I've no idea what you are saying.
I guessed, what do I win?
Wish I could say it was some other reward than the booby prize, BHO. (/s)
Sorry, based on my first post.
My sis-in-law’s brother in a certain AZ county.
I x’d out the county and his name, just so I wasn’t posting a full accusation based on ‘hearsay’.
I never could do 2 things at once
I think we should pay for buses upon buses of Obama Supporters to stop in for the week, and boost their tourism.
I’ll bet that each citizen is robbed, raped, attacked or shot during the week. And you can also be sure that not a penny will be spent by their kin-visitors.
Overload Obamunists with other Obamunists.
Thanks for the warning. I’ll stay outta that county.
I would guess it’s the most black, oriental, homosexual, mexican, puerto rican, jewish, fembot county?
probably some of those 90% black counties in the Mississippi Delta ..where I come from...are in there...Sharkey...Issaquena ..Holmes
maybe Rio Grande valley too
or Indian reservation stuff like near Rushmore or the Hopi area in AZ
wow ...it was in my guesses
and I swear on the grave of Bedford Forest I did not look at the article
i was up there last summer
with casinos those Indians have lots better housing than they used to
also the best juries in the nation for tort extortionists to win crazy personal injury awards
nice country though...kudzu, moss, plentiful whitetail deer and turkey, the river and extreme Stephen Foster dreams layout
I think Burr was arrested there?
Looks like y’all have some rough weather headed your way. Batten down the hatches and enjoy the storm!
Your talk of the lucious and beautiful Natchez Trace has me homesick. My daddy taught me to drive on the stretch of Trace north of Jackson. Wonderful memories! The Trace is so peaceful, and there is a lot of history packed in the miles south of Jackson.
BTW, I live in PG Co MD. LOL!
“I never could do 2 things at once”
No need to. You do 2 things one right after the other just fine. ;o)
South Dakota, and Native Americans, huh?
Not surprised. There are a lot of takers, of many colors.
It’s an Indian county in South Dakota that was most pro-Obama
I was at Rushmore.....monument not movie...two summers ago
Reservation housing better than in 70s
Puic stuff was dirty and poorly run by Sioux nation though
Guess that was culturally never their forte really
I give up. Which county? I have to click a link to find out? It can’t be more than 3 words.
I had posted a couple of sentences with the info, but the moderator had to edit that out, because the site does not permitted excerpts at all. The question is not mine, it is the title of the article.
The answer is Shannon County, of South Dakota, of which 93% is the Pine Hills Reservation.
I have to click a link to find out?
Of course, as is required to access the original article. Just click on "Bloomberg Business Week" in the header, or "businessweek.com" at the end.
It cant be more than 3 words.
You have to tell me what "it" is, that cannot be more than 3 words. I can't guess what you mean.
My guess is that the terms of government support of Reservation clients is quite different under Indian Affairs administration than for a typical welfare client. Even then, the income of someone raising a few beef or cows for meat and milk might not be above poverty level. The profit margin for farm operation these days may be razor thin, or even negative, even counting raising your own food. These horses and cows are not merely pastimes, they may be for basic subsistence farming.
That is very interesting. I’m glad I used “May be” or “might be,” for I do not truly know how life is for Indian population, reservation by reservation. I think that Mohawk high steel workers are very hard workers. When I lived in Niagara County in NY State, I was not far from the Tuscarora Reservation. I do not have any idea what the culture of the western Indian Pine Hill Reservation is. Yes, even for anybody (especially) subsistence farming/gardening is labor intensive. Maybe Council government is not one that promotes industry and sobriety on the reservations.
Just saying but for every Federal welfare program there is an exact same program for Indians on Indian reservations. It will have a different name and will be administered (IIRC) by the BIA (Bureau of Indian affairs) Besides this these sovereign nations (when it suits them) have other BIA welfare programs the Feds don’t have
Then Indians should just raise goats and sheep. Those are smaller and easier to butcher in the amount a family or two can eat. The Navaho raise sheep and are known for this. I am so bored with eating lamb, I would like to try some mutton which is from sheep...not lamb which from young
I’m certainly accepting of your “saying” for I’m sure you have a better practical view. I’m beginning to wonder if a reservation is sort of like a plantation, except not much personal supervision — people coming from tribal-type societies taking a long time to transition to more complex economic, role/work-based society — a big topic, I guess. Tkes an anthropologist to fathom it? Hmmmm
