We need to beat swords into plowshares.

What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

All the corrupt crooks stick together in life and in death.

All the corrupt crooks stick together in life and in death... a statement of half-truths and outright lies without one iota of consideration for the pain and suffering Stanley Crooks and his pack of thieves have created for Indian people comes from Red Lake Nation Chairman Floyd Jourdain:


Lie upon lie... the insinuation here is that Stanley Crooks made these projects possible when it was tax-payer funds providing most of the money and Stanley Crooks only invested money in order to exponentially profit from these projects as he laundered money from the illegal operations associated with casinos that come with his "loans:" prostitution, drug dealing, money laundering, tax-evasion schemes, loan-sharking, passing counterfeit money, the illegal sports betting.

Floyd Jourdain has a lot of gall talking about how Stanley Crooks "breathed life" into anything when through casino operations he and his mobster friends deprive thousands of casino workers forced to work in their smoke-filled casinos at poverty wages their very right to breath clean fresh air in their places of employment.

As for "restoring" Red Lake fisheries; what Stanley Crooks provided was more poverty wages while his mobster friends now operating Red Lake Fisheries profit. Why doesn't Chairman Jourdain tell us about the miserly poverty wages and horrendous working conditions and all the workplace related injuries the employees of Red Lake Fisheries receive for their hard work?

Yes, for Stanley Crooks and his mobster friends this is "what it is all about:" Pretending to be a friend while profiting from the misery created.

If Stanley Crooks funded all these projects then what happened to the hundreds of millions of dollars tax-payers thought they were putting into these projects?

Interesting how once Stanley Crooks made his "charitable investments" in a project tax-payer funds disappear without a trace and without any accountability.

Why doesn't Chairman Jourdain provide an accounting for how much money Stanley Crooks and his mobster friends have taken away from the Red Lake Nation and its people in return for these "philanthropic contributions and investments?"

Tax-payer dollars subsidized it all and Stanley Crooks made off with the profits.

I would like to know why Chairman Jourdain doesn't pay similar homage to the U.S. tax-payers which includes the people of the Red Lake Nation who have been ripped of by these mobsters scheming to profit from the poverty of the people who never get the good jobs in any of these projects unless they are willing to assist the exploitation of their own people who work in these smoke-filled casinos and cut their fingers to the bone processing fish for poverty wages and without any rights so a bunch of rich white mobsters can profit and live outlandishly lavish life-styles?

And why doesn't Chairman Jourdain tell us how much it has taken to bribe Minnesota politicians to turn a blind eye to all of this corruption which breeds greater poverty than what the racist United States government imposes in the first place on Indian people?

The question of all questions:

How can any people be the objects of such overwhelming charity from government and mobsters alike be the poorest people in the United States?

Come on, Chairman Floyd "Buck" Jourdain--- answer this question:

Why are so many people living a poverty existence on the Red Lake Indian Reservation alongside such massive wealth?
