Really? Look at your sentence up there. Aboriginies? Existance? Ignorance must be such bliss to you.
Besides, mate, you discuss things from your own warped perspective rather than reality. When I joke about it, you get hostile. Grow up. Greg. Be a real man for a change. Stop your political rantings and do try to apply yourself to model railroading for a while. -- Ray

You're denying the existance of Australian Aboriginies???

I'm poking fun at your inability to spell properly. Must be a Kiwi thing. -- Ray

*Not true*.
If anything, the situation here is worse, thanks to decades of governmental paternalism, the various churches, and large scale disinterest on the part of "White Ausrtalia"...
But there are signs that people here might have woken up to the fact that indigenous Australians are generally treated like shit, and things are starting to change - at last.
Cheers,
Mark.

Yes, alone with only their 99 year leases on most of the land in Palm Springs, their casinos, and all those billions of dollars of gambling income to keep them warm. (This ain't the 1950s any more, Greg. A large number of California's Native American tribes are doing quite well, thank you.)
Matter of fact, they're doing so well that they've learned to behave just like well-off European-Americans, I.E., many of the casino-owning tribes are currently purging their tribal roles of members they don't care for; cutting them off from the tribal income and throwing them back onto welfare while at the same time accidentally (whoops!) turning themselves from mere multi-millionaires into multi-multi-multi-millionaires.
Ah, the noble savage...

I'm reasonably well aware of the situation. Billions of dollars income from gambling isn't necessarily a good thing.

They live in enclaves in a country noted for it's corruption - it's not surprising that some of them have learned European-yank ways.

However it's the red man's revenge on the white man <VBG>! So far the only little bit they have gotten back for everything they lost.

I'm not sure that we're arguing. Lots of tribal money is great, but the Indians are still individuals. Individuals need fulfilling lives to prosper - being handed a wad of money and a case of beer while sitting in a casino car park in the desert doesn't cut it.

Your frequently arrogant New Zealand-centric posts say otherwise.

Given a choice between poverty and riches, darn near all the Native Americans opt for the riches.
Can't understand it myself.

BUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! "Noted for it's corruption" by self-satisfied prigs.
You want corruption? Try any place in central or south America, Africa, the middle east, or greater Asia; then get back to us. On an international scale of one to ten, the US rates somewhere around a 3. Maybe.
Idiot.

Have you something against 'arrogant New Zealand-centricity'?

Sure, so poverty of income is no longer the Indian's major problem - I'm well aware of that.

Them too!

No, I don't want corruption - it's interesting to see the countries you consider to be worse than yours!

On the most recent international survey, the US came out about 22nd. There were central and south American, African, the middle east, and greater Asian countries ahead of you.

Great signature!

I've *lived* it, doofus. Try touring through Mexico on a motorcycle some time if you'd care to learn the meaning of "corrupt"! Cops there will often stop you three of four times a day, and if you don't pay them off then you're going to jail and will never see your bike or any of your possessions again.

Yeah the USA's such an *awful* place! It's hard to understand why thousands of people are busting thier ass trying to get here by hook or by crook every day.
Must all be lunatics.
Troll.

People generally try to move from places where life is untenable to somewhere better - that would make the USA better than Mexico, Cuba, Columbia ... WOW!
Meanwhile here in New Zealand we're being over-run with escaping yanks.

Nonsense. They are leaving the overcrowding from immigrants to the US. New Zealand has plenty of pasture for them. -- Ray
