I’m so sick of this story. This should have ended months ago. While admittedly not a lawyer, I can’t see where the anti-casino-crybabies have a leg to stand on. The Tohono O’odham have the land, and they have the gaming compact which says they can build a casino there.

The people who want to be able to tell you what you can and can’t do with your money probably know this, also. They’re just jamming up the courts, making everyone go blind on paperwork, hoping to make the Tohono O’odham sick of it all and just give up, while delaying it for as long as they can. It’s shameful.

I feel that it’s this simple…you don’t like casinos? Fine…don’t go to one. Problem solved.
