SERIOUSLY, Mr. Macarro? You believe in a Sacred Site? SERIOUSLY, have you NO SHAME?

Pechanga Chairman Mark Macarro doesn't want a quarry to interfere with a Pechanga-run opportunity so he pulls out the "sacred site" card.  Macarro is UNTRUSTWORTHY.

Raise your hand if you don't believe that Mr. Macarro, of Pechanga, thinks of any site as sacred, other than his per capita generating casino.      Ted Hillock wrote about Pechanga caring more about BONES, than PEOPLE.

The tribe contends the open-pit quarry would desecrate a site that, to Pechanga, is analogous to the Garden of Eden, Jerusalem's Wailing Wall or the Sistine Chapel.

In a statement, Tribal Chairman Mark Macarro said: "It is not an option to tell our future generations that their place of creation, the basis of their history and their very identity, used to be here.     OP:  What about the generations of Pechanga people you WIPED OUT, Mr. Macarro?   You, sir, are despicable.   You send rightful members of the tribe out, try to steal their water and now engage members of Congress into your handiwork?

"As any other people would, we will bring to bear all of the resources at our disposal to protect this sacred area from the permanent destruction this massive mine would cause."

An 8,500-page environmental study of the quarry concluded its effect on cultural resources would be "less than significant," a finding Macarro called "disgraceful."     OP: Macarro doesn't even LIVE on the reservation.

"Because county planners have failed to honor the spirit of the law designed to protect such areas, we are forced to seek additional legislation to protect our place of creation from destruction," he said in the tribe's statement.   OP:  Mr. Macarro is concerned about the "spirit of the law"  yet, for his own tribe, he's not concerned about ACTUAL LAW?  Priceless.

In an interview with The Press-Enterprise editorial board Thursday, Granite executive Gary Johnson said the tribe never told Granite the site was sacred when tribal officials met with company representatives in May 2005, when the quarry was in the early stages of planning.

DO NOT TRUST ANYTHING MR. MACARRO SAYS

WHAT A CROCK! MARK YOU ARE SUCH A LYING TWO FACED INFECTIOUS CANCER! WHAT ABOUT THE GOLF COURSE? DIFFERENT STORY THEN! ANOTHER DEVIOUS ACT FROM THE "MACARRO PLAYBOOK" OF DECEPTION. MARK'S STILL THE "FOX IN THE HENHOUSE" LOOKING FOR HIS NEXT MEAL. HE'S STILL MAKING IT UP AS HE GOES. CORRUPTION AND POLITICAL POWER: HIS ONLY TRUE AGENDA, WHILE STEALING FROM HIS OWN MEMBERSHIP WITH NO REGARDS FOR HUMAN RIGHTS, OR HERITAGE. WHAT A SORRY EXCUSE FOR A CHAIRMAN!

hey maybe you should contact the rock construction people for money for tv spots to tell public whats really going on?

Is it the riverside county that is doing the project?

Luiseno said...

Hmmm I always thought that is was Lake Elsinore that was supposed to be the place of our creation, now its supposed to be some gravel pit? Perhaps this is where Mark has crawled up from the depths of Hell to lay siege upon our Tribe.

Aren't the Pechanga's already mining their own granite from another sacred site on their property? What's the difference between them mining their quarry and an outside company mining it?

The know-nothing non-members use their typical approach to matters relating to Pechanga: a mix of anger, confusion, misunderstanding, and ignorance. They also bring up their removal from the Pechanga membership roll (for lack of adequate membership credentials) as if their ouster has something to do with the latest issue involving Pechanga. Very tiresome. Please know, Dear Reader, the non-members continue to hurl false words at Pechanga and its leadership because these non-members lost their big monthy check along with losing their membership status. The non-members cannot accept their fate. Instead, the non-members lash out at others. The non-members operate from a sour frame of mind. The reading public apparently has no lasting interest in the plight of the non-members. Perhaps one day the non-members will let go their disappointment so they may enjoy the blessings of life.

Anotherview, Tribal Hack, Ed the Potato Head, or whoever you are, welcome back!

I was gettin worried for a second that you didn't care enough to comment on here anymore, that what we say didn't worry you anymore.

We, in some sort of strange way, missed your dribble.

Very tiresome says... Our plight angers, sours, and causes us to hurl fauls statements.

As in defimation!

Take us to court. Oh right. You won't because the statement here can be shown to be true.


Hey, thanks for the drive-bye read and comments. Glad to see you well enogh to keep submitting crass view of what you belive (without proof) to be true.

I do like fiction.

If this is true, then SHUT THIS SITE DOWN. Bring them to court for slander and shut them up forever. You have millions upon millions of dollars and high price lawyers. You could end this so easy, that is IF you have the facts on your side.

Everything I have written is easily verifiable with hard printed facts, How about you?

The Pechanga tribe has used the same arguments before about protecting sacred land but their actions haven’t always reflected their words. For example, the tribe promised not to do any changes to the Great Oak Ranch property if it was put into trust and made part of the reservation but once it became part of the reservation, they tore up a large portion of that land and part of the Journey at Pechanga golf course now sits on the property.

I guess the tribe is against the Quarry because they don’t own the land and they don’t stand to profit from it because if they did own the land, then chances are they might be for it.

So we have good reasons to be critical about the tribe’s rhetoric against the Quarry project, which by the way, I am also against.

Our tribal critic says none of the facts support our views, well let’s let the record speak for itself.

The following is from the United States congressional record on April 17, 2002 and if you go to the full testimony, you will read the same arguments that are now being used against the Liberty Quarry project.

Mr. Hayworth. Thank you, Mr. Avery.
Chairman Macarro, does the Pechanga Tribe have any plans
for development of any kind on the Great Oak Ranch property?

Mr. Macarro. No, we don't. As stated in our application to
Interior/BIA, we stated or have designated there is no change
of use in the property, and the intended use and purpose is to
preserve and protect the resources that are there.


Mr. Hayworth. Without objection, we would welcome that.
Just one follow-up, and for purposes of the record, Mr.
Chairman, does the tribe plan to use the Great Oak Ranch for
gaming purposes or any purposes other than what you have just
outlined?

Mr. Macarro. No, the tribe does not

Your words are transparent, for we know that we would have proven you to be corrupt liars with a hidden agenda. We and the public know that you fought us all the way to the Supreme Court I would not call a refusal to hear a case a win. The truth is that the facts have never been heard in court. I asked years ago why it is you and the corrupt people of Pechanga were not willing to use arbitration or mediation and lo and behold the tribe claimed the council was the final authority, yet there was no separation of power in the decision not would our accuser’s recuse themselves, so tell me where is the fairness in the process when there is no real independent process to settle issues that are internal such as membership disputes.

Luiseno said...

How fair was it for us when our accusers were also to be our judge and jury. To see some of the vary people who were responsible for my disenrollment sitting in judgement of myself and my family, sneering down upon us.

FALSE WORDS? YOU INSIGNIFICANT, LAME S.O.B. WE HAVE OVERWELMING PROOF OF WHO WE ARE! FOR YOU KNOW FULL WELL THE DECEITFULL, AND CORRUPT "MACARRO CARTEL" HAS IGNORED EVERY BIT OF LEGITIMATE EVIDENCE WITH HIS GREEDY HOLD ON THE ENROLLMENT COMMITTEE, AND TRIBAL COUNCIL. IGNORANCE IS THE PECHANGA MEMBERSHIP THAT MARK AND HIS HENCHMEN KEEP IN THE DARK ABOUT WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING. HIS "FOX IN THE HENHOUSE" LOOKING FOR HIS NEXT MEAL MENTALITY WITH HIS SCARE TACTICS OF THREATS TO KEEP THEM IN LINE ISN'T WORKING ANYMORE. THEY'RE STARTING TO FIND OUT WHAT A CORRUPT A.. MARK IS AND HE IS STARTING TO LOSE THAT IRON GRIP WITH THE TRIBAL COUNCIL AND MEMBERSHIP. THEY ARE STARTING TO REALIZE ALL THE DISPICABLE ACTS MARK HAS BROUGHT TO BEAR ON THE PECHANGA INDIAN NATION FOR GREED AND POLITICAL POWER. THEY HAD BETTER ACT NOW TO CLEAN HOUSE AND BRING PECHANGA BACK TO WHAT IT WAS BEFORE THE ADVENT OF THE CASINO. TRUTH, JUSTICE AND HONESTY AND FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION AND BY LAWS THAT NEEDS TO BE EMBRACED FOR ALL.

Luiseno said...

What about the basis of my history and my very identity!!??!

You have ripped away my history and my Tribal Identity from me and my family. Not only myself but every one of my family members from before the creation of the reservation, through its creation, and onward this very day.

What about our history and Tribal identity Mr Macarro?

Oh, sorry I must be speaking out of " a mix of anger, confusion, misunderstanding, and ignorance."

Hey non-member talking person what about the moratorium people? I mean the ones that prove they belong?

sessa said...

Yes, even though we the disenrolled also proved we belong, tribal hack, how can you justify the going on, 15 year moratorium?

The moratorium families are still recognized by the tribe, let them in, now!

Their afraid they might get smarter people than them enrolled in the tribe!They can care less about their heritage if they have one, but if your from across the border who cares!

OP...there have been several articles in the Los Angeles Times the last couple of days written by Phil Willon...maybe there should be a letter writing campaign to this reporter about the truth...how the tribe built a golf course over supposed "sacred ground" after Mark said they wouldn't...and how this Tribal Chief doesn't even live on the reservation he says he is trying to protect....and all about the tribe reduction by him so the remaining members could get more per capita.....how he stands in front of people and says he is trying to protect Pechangas birth place and at the same time build that ugly Casino and waste of water Golf Course is typical of his hypocrisy...and maybe if Jerry Brown wasnt getting so many donations from Tribes, they could look into the Tax breaks they are getting??..
