I see little about taxes right now. That is true. I just heard on cable news TV today that his re-election staff wishes Trump would quit commenting on many other topics so that taxes would become a hot topic again. On the other hand I don't believe that restitution for NA's has been a hot headline since maybe 1924 when they were given American citizenship implying they should put up or shut up.

And yet, that still doesn't prevent you from making ridiculous, categorical claims to the contrary.

Then, not only are you completely uninformed, but you're making a false assumption that Native American rights/sovereignty should somehow hinge upon the "permission" of those who committed the atrocities in the first place.

The US government recently awarded a half BILLION $ in one decision alone. Another 3.5 Billion was awarded in 2009 for land abuses and broken treaties. In addition, there are currently more than 200 NA lawsuits pending against the US government. Many are class-actions.

Do you even listen to yourself?

And SLAVERY used to be "the way it is". What's your point, "Brainiac"?

And just so we're clear on a key point, the US govt, is, and always has been in clear violation of the core principals of the Constitution in matters concerning the rights of Native Peoples.

You're a big boy, I have every confidence that you can do your own homework (assuming that you're honest enough to let some facts penetrate the semi-permeable strata located behind your blind eyes and between your deaf ears). mad

Well, then add this to the already huge list of things that you've never heard of.
