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.

Its population is 94.2 percent Native American

... and close to 100% dependent on free Obama Money.

“They can’t 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...

Here's a story.........

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.

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 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.

According to a May 2004 Time Magazine article on obesity in the United States, Jefferson County had the highest percentage of obese adult residents (26.1%) of any county in the U.S.

In that context, the percentage measured were those with a body mass index between 30 and 40 (any measure greater than 40 corresponds to morbid obesity).

The county also has one of the highest rates of Bank Card delinquency rates in the United States, at 6.21% (2009 - Q1)


Your typical, food stamp, welfare, free Iphone Obama/democrat voter for life.

I think you know more about Mississippi's rich history than anybody here. I love to read your reminisces.

I've only been through Jefferson County on the Trace once and the whole Trace was luscious and beautiful when I was treated to a wonderful drive!

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.

“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.

I give up.

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.

Which county?

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 can’t 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.

What are welfare recipients doing with horses and cows?

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.

As a veterinarian I have discussions with colleagues that practice near Reservations or spend a few weeks there doing work for free and the majority of the reservation inhabitants are so lazy they don't possess livestock and if they do, rarely do anything for the animal's benefit and health. Very few Native Americans on reservations have livestock and the food is provided by food stamps. The ignorance of animal husbandry in these areas is appalling. Cows for milk are too labour intensive and there is nowhere for the slaughter of beef effectively. If the Native Americans were held to the same standards of animal care as are the rest of us, they'd be arrested for animal cruelty.

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
