Yes, it takes a person with some moral fiber of their own, like Gandhi, to decipher such things,... hence, their so called "Christian/Republican" supporters, don't see it! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

What do you think about Western civilization?

According to the results of the 2010 census, Indians are a large ethnic group of Asian Americans.[self-published source?]

Today, other than tribes successfully running casinos, many tribes struggle, often located on reservations isolated from the main economic centers of the country. The estimated 2.1 million Native Americans are the most impoverished of all ethnic groups. According to the 2000 Census, an estimated 400,000 Native Americans reside on reservation land. While some tribes have had success with gaming, only 40% of the 562 federally recognized tribes operate casinos. According to a 2007 survey by the U.S. Small Business Administration, only 1% of Native Americans own and operate a business. Native Americans rank at the bottom of nearly every social statistic: highest teen suicide rate of all minorities at 18.5 per 100,000, highest rate of teen pregnancy, highest high school drop-out rate at 54%, lowest per capita income, and unemployment rates between 50% to 90%.

Petition to: President Obama
U.S. Senate & House Of Representatives
The American Indian community demands an apology from President Obama to include U.S. Senate and House Of Representatives for allowing the code name “Geronimo” represent international terrorist Osama bin Laden.
The association of Geronimo’s name to Osama bin Laden is yet another degrading slap in the face to American Indians from another president and our federal government who waged an “unnecessary holocaust war” against American Indians in the forming of the America we have today. True American history shows Indians were never an enemy of this country. American Indians had every right to stand up for their true home land, way of life, freedom, civil liberties and right to self govern.
Geronimo is an American Indian hero, an American Indian civil rights leader icon in U.S. history. President Obama would not dare allow the name Martin Luther King, Jesse Jackson or any other prominent African American name be associated to Osama bin Laden. This one point alone being made goes to the heart of demanding an apology from President Obama as our country’s Commander in Chief.
President Obama’s gross oversite in allowing Geronimo’s name to be used representing a mass murder terrorist Osama bin Laden, calling for the destruction of America is another dark day in American history branded on the American Indian community and totally unjustified. An apology from President Obama will not change history, but a public apology from President Obama has to be part of that history for future American generations and people around the world to fully understand the plight of American Indians, their service and patriotism to our country.
History note: The federal government is setup and based on the foundation of American Indian Nation governments, so stated by U.S. Senate resolutions honoring Native American Indian Heritage Month of November. Federalism, separation of government powers, freedom of speech to include the Indian word caucus were home grown, and in use by American Indians and their gift to all people of the world willing to stand up for their human rights.
