Progress? We don't need no stinking progress. At least not what Smith thinks is progress. Enjoy your per capita reduction, and please approve an administrative budget without any changes. Cost cutting is for members only. Admin can't take any reduction. Pala Security needs new vehicles for the comfort of their sleep.

The Webster Dictionary just discovered a new meaning of the word
stupid.
Stupid = a band of Native Americans called PBMI who support lies,
corruption, murders, fraud, drug running, and many more illegal acts
done by their Tribal leaders.

If that news paper wants to write a good article about Smith and Pala they should talk to some of the Tribal Members that the EC has screwed over.
That would be a article worth reading.

Robert and Theresa better think twice about lowering the per capita, not giving anyone notice on how much, gee....give people time to plan and budget. Not everyone gets the full monthly per capita because of loans, child or spousal support, etc. I'll be damned if they get bonuses but not the Tribal members. If we're so broke sell those friggin jets,no raises, and no raises for the different departments.

In order to stop the cut of our per cap there are only 2 ways to stop it.
#1- vote to not cut it no matter what they say.
#2- Kill the corrupt son of a bitches and dump there ass over the embankment on pala temecula rd.
Or in the ponds on hwy 76 where security is always sleeping.
I guess number 2 is the only option because everyone is afraid to stand up and make motions at the meetings that would go against Rob or Nieto.
At the very least someone should kick their asses real good and let them know that the people are not going to sit idle anymore.
If it is voted down by the General Membership then they can not cut it.
We all know that at the next meeting they will be ready will a bunch of lies and blame the management at the Casino for the cut.
The managers don't seem to know any thing about what we were told at the last meeting, they say the Casino is doing very well.
Also the construction project that is going on is covered by a line of credit issued by a bank so they can not blame the cut on that part.
They just need the money for Pala Interactive to fund the online gaming bullshit which they refuse to talk about to the members.
Like I said either vote4 not to cut the members per cap or kill them.
