The whole truth and nothing but the truth................

I'm a member of the White Earth Chippewa Tribe. I didn't choose my parents. I grew up on many reservations. Most tribes at every turn have been ripped off by their tribal council members. Look at my tribe or the Crow tribe. Crow had 3 Tribal Chairman go to the Federal Pen. In 1988 they threw the Indians a bone to allow for casino gaming, to try to let them make a few bucks. The something-for-nothing mentality of gaming!

The American Dream does not sneak up on you and hit you over the head with a baseball bat. If not here? Where? If not now? When? If not you? Who? Success is where opportunity and hard work meet. At 14 I was hauling bales working in a hot hay field in North Dakota. At 15 I hired out to a ranch in Montana while my parents lived on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. My summer job all through High school was working on a ranch in Montana. Pay was $200 per month working 6 days a week. My last year it increased to $300 per month. Wow.

Know what? I have worked 55 years of my 70 on this planet. I am tired. You want a good life? Work for it. Strap it on. Forget your skin color. Grow a pair and shut the fuck up and work your ass off. Think it is better elsewhere? Then fucking move. Or shut the fuck up.
