...Also, just to put it out there, I've been out of Surveillance since June.



So, since you are attending casino operations related conferences, would one be wrong to assume you have moved into the operational side of the casino?

After an hour or so of reflection,



Is that what single guys are calling it these days? :)

Wrond indeed. I'm still on the regulatory side, just out of the dungeon of the All Seeing Eye. Basically, I went from finding things that are wrong, to finding out how and why things went wrong.

I'm still the Dark Side, I'm just not all up in YOUR business anymore =)

I am not as smart as I sued to be - you state the territory covers 1 state (NY), 2 provinces (Ontario & Quebec) and three countries
I get two of the countries (USA & Canada) - are you stating the third country is the Mohawk Nation itself?

Lol! I'm no slouch, but even I would get tired of myself after an hour ;)

Adidas Novas were my favorite shoe ever. I was and still am very sad when they were discontinued. And yes, they go with everything. Even a suit, as I've proved =)

I am.

"Sovereign Nation - The supreme, absolute, and uncontrollable power by which an independent state is governed and from which all specific political powers are derived; the intentional independence of a state, combined with the right and power of regulating its internal affairs without foreign interference.

Sovereignty is the power of a state to do everything necessary to govern itself, such as making, executing, and applying laws; imposing and collecting taxes; making war and peace; and forming treaties or engaging in commerce with foreign nations."

This, of course, is not the full story, as several treaties and agreements have been made that sort of undermine it at its base. I suppose it's something you sort of come to understand by being in it for awhile. It's the US, CAN, NY, ONT and QUE all rolled into one, but at the same time, it's none of these things. It is a Nation unto itself, despite influence from and location in the surrounding states and countries.

Hmmmmmmm - I must have missed it when the Native American Nations became tax exempt to the USA and when they provided for their own national security? I think you are using the term sovereign quite loosely but I get what you mean. If I knew you were going to use that argument as your argument for them being a "country", I would not have asked the question.

I'd argue that they did that sufficiently via treaty:-)

Yeah, you have to use it loosely. Like I said, same but different. Shoot a deer in your backyard tomorrow and you'll see what I mean ;)
