Playing Indian For Your Health

It looks like some folks are getting clever when it comes to dancing around the Obamacare issue.  Check out Daniel Greenfield's suggestion on how to “become Indian” and buck the system.

“If you can fiddle around with some genealogy, you can probably go Cherokee. There’s no blood quantum requirement. But Cherokees with a  written genealogy aren’t your best bet.

What you want is a tribe with a few dozen members looking to boost its numbers, that has few genealogical records worth mentioning and will nod if you say that your great-grandmother was 1/4 something or other.”

Any race that does this is a low life in my book. My grandmother was full Cherokee & raised my sister & I alone. When the “State” lady would bring powdered milk,cheese, & other stuff to her she”d take it & share it with our neighbors. I loved the cheese & we”d eat that. She finally told the lady to give her portion to someone else that needed it. We had a garden & chickens.We canned stuff from our garden & ate Deer, Pork etc that other people would give us. She said as long as you have your pride you have it all. Don”t let anyone take it away from you. Work Hard for what you need & even harder for what you Want.Don”t ask for anything.
