I have never been to a Casino but I do know that the Seneca Nation holds the best hand..pun intended...the NYS Thruway that goes through their Lands. Spitzer folded like a cheap suit during the last dispute. The Seneca's closing the Western part of the Thruway, and the loss of commerce would cost NYS a lot more than they would get in any Casino revenue. NYS Government's willingness to grab the dirty end of a bad gamble is proof that just the thought of 'free money' is beyond reason.

Yes Bob, this is one of the last promises that our leaders can take back from the Indians... we gave them exclusive rights to the casinos in NYS but now that the government is running low and way way in debt it is time to get some of the action. It may be a declining market but the government will get whatever is can glisten from it. They already are forcing the patrons to the native Americans to pay taxes for goods purchased on reservations... the white mans word from our leaders is not worth the paper used to wipe theie bottom side and smells just as bad!

Ha! New Jersy is concerned that their closed Casinos presents an 'eyesore'. This whole idea of the State and Local Govt's reaping the Casino gambling rewards is ludicrous at best, the native Americans have it wrapped up already.
