We have been discussing the articles about poor Senator Jonathan Windy Boy, who thinks that every one that is non-native American is out to get him. It was bad enough that he was making racket about the lame, yet dumb “honest injun” comment by the GOP Chairman in the last post but he also has been going around trying to get “his people” better representation on the board of the Hill County Commissioners which he clams discriminates against Natives. Well Jonathan is in luck. The District 2 County Commissioner is up for election this very year and the district takes in most of the reservation. Those of us at the Corrector can never recall anyone from Rocky Boy ever running for commissioner but since Incumbent Mike Anderson has apparent problems with base of support we would say that the “stars are aligned” for our first Native American Commissioner All Jonathan has to do is field a candidate and campaign and work towards getting elected. There has never been a better opportunity for a Native American Candidate to get elected and those of us at the Corrector hope Rocky Boy fields a candidate for this position. Good Luck Jonathan and we look forward to the campaign.
Since I am one of those mostly white types, I personally found it offensive when the Great Falls Tribune reported on their front page this morning all the billions of dollars President Obama is giving to Native American Tribes strictly because of their race. No other group of people or race was given this privilege. Is not this discrimination against those like myself that are mostly white and cannot be registered on tribal enrollments?
What do our readers think?
