This just in from National Indian Gaming:
"Just before we rang in the New Year of 2014, a comedy legend, and dear friend, Charlie
Hill passed on. Our deepest sympathy and condolences go out to his wife, children and his family
in this time.
We honor Charlie's memory who was always there for us, taking us to a
better, happier place, interrupting the mundane and historical bitterness through his comedy.
As a stand-up comedian Charlie's quick wit, Indian humor and Native wisdom touched all of our spirits and
reminded us that we could change the world one laugh at a time.
Charlie will always be in our hearts as we remember how he represented Indian country at the
Comedy Store in LA, or on the Richard Pryor Show,
The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, David
Letterman and the Roseanne Barr Show to name just a few successful and former
colleagues of his. He was instrumental in breaking down stereotypes and cultural misnomers
about Native Americans in the national spotlight. The transformation that he inspired in Hollywood not only
involved championing Native's acting in Native roles but also getting Native Americans in other
entertainment industry roles like writing, film making, make-up, editing, and performing.
Not only did Charlie entertain across America and around the world, he also traveled
extensively throughout Indian country and brought
laughter and joy as we celebrated 25 years of economic growth in Indian country directly
attributable to Indian gaming. He left us a wonderful legacy. He taught us
to heal our generational trauma through the medicine of smiles, belly laughs and humorous
insights. Oh, he gave us that Good Medicine and we thank him for
I was honored to be asked to speak at Charlie's memorial luncheon and in my words to Charlie's family and
friends I committed to carry the message of Charlie's legacy. That being, that he used his gifts and talents to
make a powerful paradigm shift in the arts and entertainment industry. Charlie influenced the empowerment of
Native artisans in Indian gaming. Through his determination as a warrior, he carved a path for Native artists
and entertainers throughout the Indian gaming Industry, advocating for the hiring of Indians in Indian casino's
expanding Native-to-Native business relationships. He has not only changed America, but he educated the world
about Native people, standing up for tribal sovereignty, economic development and the plight of Indian country.
He was tremendously successful in making a positive difference for all Indian people.
For the loved ones that Charlie leaves behind; we offer them the three condolences of the Iroquois
Confederacy. May the tears be wiped away from their eyes so that they can see clearly once again, their
ears be cleaned so that they can have perfect hearing and their throats be cleansed so that they may speak
clearly. May their minds be clear and their peace restored.
The Charlie Hill Fund website has been established to help the family during this
extraordinary period. Any amount that can be contributed is appreciated. The EverRibbon website is a
secure site that is used for accepting donations. Interested parties may donate to the Charlie Hill Fund with a
credit card or bank account. To donate to the Charlie Hill Fund, go to: https://www.everribbon.com/ribbon/view/15637.
Charlie's life will live on in the many hearts that he has touched in his lifetime."

The world has lost a hero today, the greatest, most humble, Nelson Mandela passed away at the
age of 95. His life was full of love and tolerance even after being locked up in a cell for nearly 3 decades.
We grieve for this great humanitarian, Africa's most infamous leader ever in the land. Our thoughts and prayers
go to his family and friends as we reflect on his worldly achievements.
Today we celebrate a day to thank all those who have served this great nation sacrificing life,
limb and livelihood to protect our rights, our freedom which is afforded us by the oldest written Constitution
in the world. Veterans both young and old we thank you for all you have done and all you do to make this nation
one of the safest and strongest on earth.
What we have to offer is a mere pittance compared to all who have sacrificed so much in the
name of freedom. Remember a veteran and thank them today and everyday for your ability to walk to the store,
ride your bike or just enjoy a day at the park with your family and friends because without a strong military
this nation would not be one of freedom and prosperity. Thank you to all who have served along with their
families and friends. A tribute to the best in the world.
It now appears the Republican Senators who stood on the floor in the Senate during the
"Affordable Care Act" debates being the voice of reason for the people. Many Senators spent hours and hours on
in front of the podium laying out their arguments against the ACA to the American people. Senator Enzi gave in
depth details with his concerns addressing the problems set forth in this video.
But the Democrats insisted they were wrong, that they were against this act because it was
brought to the floor with the presidents support and the Republicans didn't like that as witnessed by
this video with President Obama's opening statement
during ACA debate. The president stated he was elected to work for the American people and the costs will
come down and those who want to stop this act will not prevail.
Now we come to 2013 to find memos and emails that stated the president and his administration
know all along millions of people would in fact lose their health insurance because of the new law and the
provisions inserted by those in charge. Kathleen Sebelius has been on the hot seat for days now as she
testifies in front of the Finance Committee hearing detailing what her role was in the roll out of the website
to enroll individuals as required by law. As she was being grilled by the committee she leaned over and
whispered "don't do this to me" and I couldn't help thinking "Ms Sebelius go back to your boss and tell him
please don't do this to us" as the talking points "if you like your healthcare insurance, you can keep your
healthcare insurance" rings in my ears. They knowingly deceived the American people to pass a bill that was
unpopular to most Ameican's. Those who liked it knew it wouldn't pass if the truth were to be told so they lied
for 3 years to get want they wanted regardless of who it would hurt in the end.
To date the website still crashes repeatedly, is shut down every night to fix the 621 million
dollar disaster our hard earn tax dollars paid for. When all is said and done there should be a special
prosecutor to find out where all that money went and why, as a website like this in the private sector wouldn't
have cost more than 1 million dollars to have up and running. Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the events
Mayor Cory Booker is now Senator Booker from New Jersey.
2009 Senator Obama constantly told the American public "if you like your doctor you can keep your
doctor, period" as he traveled the country campaigning for the highest office in the land. The then senator and
current president continued to sell the Affordable Care Act at hundreds and thousands of speeches using the
same selling points to promote his vision for all Americans.
Now we find out he and his minions knew that was not the truth. As with many of his statements
it was a lie told to sell a product they wanted you to have with funds paid for from your pocket. Since we are
being forced to buy the insurance under the ACA (Affordable Care Act) shouldn't the FTC truth in advertising Act apply to all that
All those involved should be accountable for lying to the American people for all these years
knowing the statements to be false. Anyone involved in this scam should be fined, prosecuted and removed from
office for failing to protect the American people from this deceptive practice that seems to be a trend in the
political arena. 10-31-13
The five big lies about the Affordable Care Act... http://bit.ly/HadEuX
Democrats and the president say they will not negotiate when it comes to the debt ceiling and
health care. President Obama stated Republicans want to shut down the government and not pass a continuing
resolution budget plan. The truth is the Republicans will pass the resolution without funding for ObamaCare so
that issue can be worked on to make it less expensive and tailor it to those who need it as the health care
plan was to do at the onset.
House passes stop gap funding bill,
352 House Resolution and House Resolution 59 without taxpayers being on the hook for ObamaCare by a
vote of 230 to 189 which will prevent a government shutdown. Now it will be sent off to the Senate where the
leader Harry Reid (D) Nv. yesterday vowed to shut down the resolution it's tracks as they (the Democrat held
Senate) will not pass any bill that stops funding for the health care law. In a news conference on the 19th of
September Senator Majority Leader Reid stated
"I want ta be absolutely crystal clear any bill that defunds ObamaCare is dead,
dead.) Democrats are saying they are willing to shut down the government if this one
provision isn't including in the funding. 9-20-13
Senator Ted Cruz (R) Texas standing on the Senate floor fighting for those constituents who got him elected
to defund or repeal ObamaCare. The bill sent to the Senate from the House has a measure that would require 60
votes to fund the Affordable Care Act. Mr. Cruz explained why the RINO's in Congress want to maintain the 51
vote majority rule so they could go back to their constituents and say they voted against the act and lost.
Mr. Cruz wants to stop symbolic votes on all bills presented for a vote in the Halls of Congress to make
people listen. With their low approval rating Mr. Cruz goes on to state what he hears from his constituents, he
states what he hears from my folks back home is "you guys
have done enough damage already." "We don't talk about fundamental tax reform, or jobs. No in Congress we have
fund raisers, we don't listen to Americans and that is why our approval ratings are so low. "
After over 21 hours of deliberation Senator Cruz
yield the floor for chamber prayer to start a new day ending his stand
for the American people. The senator stated his reasoning is simple 'this fight is to stop the train
wreck in Washington where the Senate doesn't listen to the people." Senator Dick Durbin continually
attempted to corner the freshmen senator with questions about ObamaCare and each time Mr. Cruz eloquently made
his points. Finally Mr. Durbin asked in contention "Do you have the nations best insurance as offered by
your employer, the Federal Government"? His response was "No, I have the option" but do not or have not
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid offered Continuing Resolution for vote
striking the provision to defund ACA and changed dates from 12/13 to 11/13 for the funding to take
place. Sheldon Whitehouse spoke on the floor of the Senate
addressing the crises arising in America "unless Speaker Boehner can't reframe his right wing tea party
extremists" we will be forced to shut down the government. 9-26-13
