I find it very disturbing the Department of Taxation and Finance is very adamant about collecting the taxes that this corporation supposedly owes. They are not showing any remorse and the state is making this company look like criminals. Why is it that they dont say two words to the non-taxpaying lawbreaking Native Americans that are doing exactly the same thing! It's called reverse racism!

The owner should file against the state for failing to collect from the tribes.

I dont think that would fly. Unforntunately the state would claim that has nothing to do with this case.

Almost like if you got pulled over for speeding and you were going the same speed as the guy in front of you. The cop doesnt want to hear the excuse of he was doing the same speed.

I just lose more more faith in our local, state, and federal government on a daily basis. It pisses me off to no end to watch the Pro-Casino/Smoke Shop/Gas Station Native Americans dance around our government and laugh. On the other hand, when a non-Indian business does the same EXACT thing, they are not wasting anytime trying to get the tax money

Is that not discrimination?

It is not like the the illegal acts of the Indians have not been brought to the attention of the government. They CHOOSE not to act. That makes it discrimination.

SFIW, in your example, if I was going down I-90 and get pulled over, that is one thing. If I am driving down my street every day and getting pulled over and my neighbor is doing the same thing and not getting pulled over, NOW I have a case.

So what's the answer! The UCE and a few other politicians have brought this to the attention of the NYS government yet they sit back and do NOTHING! I am sure the Indians just made 1,000 of dollars in profits for their "Customer Appreciation Sale."

Even with the persistent effort of these groups and people, nothing is done.

I guess it depends on who's eyes you look through! I agree though, our government is SCARED that they might get mad and start a riot. That's the weakest statement I've ever heard.

So is more land in trust now or not?

No trust.

Well I guess the bigger question is? Why is there so many questions and lawsuits about what shouldnt happen and is happening. Why dont the Indians just live like citizens of the United States of America and stop powwwwwwting!?? lol
