I saw that bison skull pile, wow. (next to impossible to believe those animals were even close to being used for anything but massive rot)

Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

There were about 750 million people in the entire world in the 18th century. The population of North America went from about 1 million to 10 million during that time.

Some sources say over 100 million native Indians. . Some say a few million.

Your link says there were six and a half million Natives living in America in 1650.

I don’t think smoking rules will be affected.


If so, then all the politicians are hypocrites with statements about “lives mean more than money”.

That’s 6 mil left in 1650. The Indian conflict lasted 400 years after 1492. Indians were still being killed in 1870

The British killed 100 million native Indians through conventional combat, starvation by killing buffalos and Biowarfare.
1763:
“We gave them two blankets and a handkerchief out of the smallpox hospital,” Captain William Trent of the garrison militia wrote in his journal. “I hope it will have the desired effect.”
“Under orders from British General Jeffrey Amherst, the commander of Fort Pitts gave the attacking Indian chiefs, with whom he was negotiating, blankets from the small pox hospital. It was a pioneering effort at what is now called biological warfare.” Howard Zinn, “A People’s History of the United States.” 87% of the native indians died to diseases.



The British barely left the coasts in the hundred and fifty years, give or take a few, they controlled their colonies.
They didn't kill 100 million native Indians. By all accounts, there were more Indians in what would become the USofA in 1783 than there were in 1607. In Canada, the British treated Indians much better than our American government did.

IMO, A casino with 24/7 cameras, really doesn't need to see the face all the time, just tell the person to pull it away from the face for a moment after they sit down at a table to get a clear shot. Tell the person to hold their breath if they're concerned during that moment.

Someone who comes in to rob a casino already needs to wear a mask before entering, because they walk in any entrance without one, they will be on video.



Robbing it how? Smash and grab cheques or cash? This is the kind of crook who deserves to get caught, getaway is near impossible.

As others have said, the masks will help the crossroaders and pass-posters. Anyone in the Griffin Book. I doubt anyone in the official Black Book would bother.

Small casinos can get robbed pretty easily compared to big ones. Like the Longhorn in vegas. It's only 30 steps to cashier's cage. Usually only one security guard. Just sayin' Not sayin' it's a good way to stay free.

Casinos often allow criminal robbery perps to escape. They prefer the police to investigate than risk patron or employees being hurt if a crime is being committed.

Someone shot during a casino robbery leaves them open to lawsuit. By saying they didn't antagonize the criminals into violence they have a defense.

Masks will prohibit police identification

I am sure some could, but generally their size and location are great defenses. In the end it is like robbing a bank. An experienced crew can do it, but there is so much security better to hit a softer target. Hit the armored car that picks up from the grocery store.

"When considering population estimates by world region, it is worth noting that population history of the indigenous peoples of the Americas before the 1492 voyage of Christopher Columbus has proven difficult to establish, with many historians arguing for an estimate of 50 million people throughout the Americas, and some estimating that populations may have reached 100 million people or more.[32] It is therefore estimated by some that populations in Mexico, Central, and South America could have reached 37 million by 1492.[33] Additionally, the population estimate of 2 million for North America for the same time period represents the low end of modern estimates, and some estimate the population to have been as high as 18 million.[34]"
