Pechanga LOSES in Water Bill: NO CHANGE to ALLOTTEE Definition

The Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians and it's portly Chairman Mark Macarro suffered a loss in their water bill written by their chief lobbyist/spouse Holly.....Macarro?  WTF?!?  So Mark gets his per capita, paycheck and then he pays his WIFE to lobby?   Suhweet...double dippers are for PIKERS when it's a triple...but I digress.....  

Their desired change, which would change the definition of reservation allottee to TRIBAL MEMBERS ONLY, was stricken from the bill.    Could it be because they would have had to put the allottee descendants BACK into the tribe for that to work out?   Or, maybe they thought we descendants would roll over and play dead.   NOPE, ain't gonna happen.   We will work to make sure it doesn't pass the HOUSE.

http://www.originalpechanga.com/2013/10/the-washington-dc-shooting-we-were.html   has the story of our visit to Washington DC and Capitol Hill.  Shining a spotlight on the corruption there seems to have the desired affect.

Next up:  Having the BIA or Department of Interior negotiate OUR rights to ANY water that flows on the reservation.

Did you KNOW that Chairman Macarro lives on land that's PURCHASED?  His family allotment was SOLD for taxes decades ago.   WE HUNTERS have had ours for 119 years..

Maybe Pechanga should hire the bloggers that trash them on twitter? It seems they get more attention from Congress than the (the nasty group at pekchanga).

They don't charge 1 million a year and (fail) like holly?

The Department of Interior, along with the Senate committee pulled the part that Pechanga was trying to get put in. NO change to the description of allottee.

Holly did fail on this one, but since Macarro shares in her earnings, it's no big deal.

First off I'd have to lower my standards, become more immoral, and develop a complete disregard for what is good and right. Then maybe I could work for him.... hmmmm if the price was high enough... Naw, I don't think I could even then.

Pechanga has a blogger "Macarro" and corrupt actions speaking for the band. If it's what is wanted keep it. If it's not what s wanted it will be flushed internally or external because lies, bullying apartheid acts are not accepted.
