For the record, I'm answering this directly after seeing it. About 30 seconds. I am not informed when there are comments on my columns. The USA is not, in any sense, "an illegal nation." Your mind is obviously too subtle for me, because I do not "get" most of your quotation marks. In reply to why I haven't dealt with all the problems of Indian country, internal and external, I could say take that up with my editors, since I am limited to 800 words, give or take (and my editors will tell you I'm always taking). The part of what you say that is not arrant nonsense is covered to some degree in my book, Sequoyah Rising. Probably not covered in a way that would placate you. I am not of the 1%. I'm from the Oklahoma boondocks and raised on commods. I live on a retirement from my first career as a Texas judge. I am qualified for judicial assignments but they have dried up for me since the GOP took over Texas. I was not in academia long enough to earn a retirement. I get Social Security from the illegal USA, as well as a disabled veteran pension. Because I have nine grandchildren and my children do not yet have their school loans paid off, I hope to hit the lottery. Both my home and my car are co-owned by my credit union. If this is how the 1% lives, I would hate to see how the 99% lives!
