Reservations

I will freely admit I was not a big fan of Trump in the election but voted for him because the concept of Hillary was just too overwhelming. Not that my vote made any difference – I live in Illinois, where corruption was reborn from the old Tamney Hall.

Still, I have to say, much has changed over this last year, mostly for the good. But not all.

– I note the republicans are talking about saving DACA, an abomination that needs to be gotten rid of like a cancer that it is.

– I note the wall as campaigned about is not going to happen. Instead some farce “over 10 years” is being proposed, and we all know what that means. It ain’t gonna happen.

– I note Obamacare is still with us. Sure, people say it will die of its own accord. Nothing in government dies of its own accord.

Trump was elected in the hopes of draining the swamp. ?Is he being co-opted.

    The Association Health Plans EO is on the platform for comments. This passes it will show what sort of coverage people, real, tax paying people (let’s call them citizens), want.

    I thought your post was going to be about Indian Reservations. . .

      What were you expecting about Indian Reservations

      • MLHMLH says:

        That Trump wants to close ’em. Which would help so many, in my opinion.

        • DevereauxDevereaux says:

          Might be a bit hard, seeing as they have by law almost sovereign status. And considering how much money their casinos make, it might not be possible for government lawyers to achieve.

          • MLHMLH says:

            They aren’t sovereign. The land is held in trust for them until they grow up or something. We treat them as children and wonder why they don’t pull themselves up. The Res system (well most all of BIA and BIE) is a travesty.

            • DevereauxDevereaux says:

              You would most likely be more informed of their status. My understanding is that the police, eg. have no jurisdiction on Res land, albeit the FBI does. They don’t have to pay attention to any state laws, much like federal institutions (so, eg, the VA is not bound by any state rules, etc). It’s why they get casinos when they can’t be built elsewhere in the state – or require a special state permit.

    On the topic, I guess I have this sniggling sense that the good guys never win. Draining the swamp is an incredibly difficult thing.

    In another venue I have been having a discussion with some classmates. The Liberal is trying to explain away Obama’s attempt to unseat Netanyahu as a misuse of taxpayer money. It is almost funny to read if it didn’t sound so unseemly.
