Why hasnt Bush said anything about the second deadliest school shooting in U.S. history???!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Within hours of the columbine incident in 1999 Clinton publically expressed his condolences and followed up on it a few days later with a radio address with a proposal on gun control and school safety projects. If you ask me it's a major issue of racism. We're talking about kids here. Specifically, kids murdered in a school shooting... on an Indian reservation. You would think that the president of the United States would have something more to offer than silence. You would also think that this is more important than the Terri Schiavo case in which Bush preempted his vacation to say something about on Thusday with his "high-profile, late night intervention" on her behalf. Im not saying her case is not important im just saying 10 native American people were gunned down. Im thinking maybe he hasnt heard the news yet.
...did you hear about the presidents proposal to cut $100 million from indian programs next year?
This is all more outraging than Bush coming into presidency.

At least black history month is acknowledged. I'm a cherokee indian, whose heritage goes back to the TRAIL OF TEARS, incase you don't know what i'm talking about, it's where my people were led out of alabama,georgia, ect..., and took to oklahoma during the winter thousands died. once in in oklahoma my people were for got about. the land was barren and the wind blew continuosly, ever tried to raise food when the seed blows away??? have you ever wandered what you were going to feed your children??? what about medical care???sure slavery was horrible, but at the slaves were fed, they received medical attention because a slave was very important to his master. this country was stolen from the the indians,they were taken to a reservation which isn't much better than a prison camp!!! we don't have native american month, give to the native american college of your choice??? get real the white man and black man has ripped the indian off forever, the white man by taking the land and the black man by getting what the indians should've had!!! and as for bush he doing just fine. dawn

He has no clue about anything, does he? I dare you to name one thing that you would trust him on. (here in our house, that would be zip, nada, rien, nothing...)
