And tonight I'm faced that Eric -- -- sing that -- -- you live.
And so this is a story about the United Nations and and -- final believe it actually.
Mount Rushmore as a -- -- every year as a kid it's about eighty miles east of -- and great and grandfather's other brands that they.
Have there and my uncle and my cousins and run it.
The US security in the united the United Nations has a wrap -- tour accident but that a -- reporter and go to court there had to go it McVeigh's way to go to an agency went -- you -- and after he did all of this analysis.
Has come to determine that he believes sacred lands like the Black Hills of south at Dakota.
Which includes not restaurant which is in South Dakota.
Should be returned to native American control interesting given that the UN human rights council's you know appoints dictators of unrest and all sorts.
And allows all sorts of things but they want us Americans to return.
Not -- to the native American putting well.
The -- taking any advice concerning justice from the UN is like getting help tips from a corpse.
But look at me there are dark arts contracts out there Indians like big -- once owned Manhattan island too so I think there's a compromise here which we give the UN.
Back to the airport or any old native Americans let them take over the UN because it nobody can do a -- job in the UN now I ask that gets.
Kris I like that and move into an Indian reservation -- yeah and this is an interesting thing you know congress can't agree on anything.
There's actually no member of congress would agree to meet with James and I -- who is this special -- -- to everything about.
I've partisanship of hook I don't know I think it's kind of ridiculous I honestly you ever read the story that the -- to go this should be given that don't get.
Bottom line is that this is the UN suggesting we did you -- figure out.
International problems with the stay out of here about go away what I've it's not that that's and.
You have in these United States Supreme Court that ruled that those -- had a right to that and is not just tribal and social spiritual and sacred like we have every sacred than we have they absolutely should get that -- so significant we -- we get motivated -- and had a as usual the white -- broke the country not.
-- -- -- Compensate them for the -- Indians wouldn't take the money for a while they want their land Texas their sacred -- you could still have about -- want to -- visit -- content that's been on for many many -- -- about an inspiration for trying to -- the channels that is -- in the first thing going on in Palestine right now with the Israeli attack but change the subject and it's really not -- in this state like -- like guys on this country are what we did an African Americans and what we did the American Indians we -- watered them and hundreds of thousands.
What's been the worst possible situation there unemployment rates either up close range I and we ought to be disgraced for what we did -- I'm not.
Nothing to do with it so I'm not gonna all your liberal guilt.
Well you don't have to.
-- yeah at what point does this end because.
And even edit and none -- nobody actually lived here you can go back thousands you're gonna actually lived here everybody came here at some point so is there -- an end to -- talking about him yelling at a -- -- and I don't think you can defend -- -- -- -- -- don't think you can defend what happened to the end -- Indians but there was a lot of suffering in the western civilization a lot of people came here and suffered.
As you pointed out I just think.
This is a tricky conversation.
This recommendation has also been made by an academic the worst form -- academic one -- -- law degree.
And it's almost a waste of time even talking about it because the likelihood of that happening.
From some rough let's move over the yeah tendencies and then mine is just slow it is are slim and none everybody you know you can't let.
Yes I have been that John -- is beautiful.
But the point is that congress passed a law giving them back the -- they then took it back when they found gold there.
And then they took it away from the Indians in the Supreme Court eventually rules you're right that they had to compensate import and they don't -- conversation -- sacred land they want their sacred land back.
And we ought to give it back to them we have no right not.
That Atlanta now that nobody in congress I mean at all amendment on opening -- met with other budget -- -- they did just you know there's scared little punks and they're afraid to go.
Why would get at least listen to but the Indians have been up to talk maybe this of the US and maybe that's a bad thing but at least -- the -- Some Indians have gotten compensation financial compensation from different organizations for land so.
Are they gonna start giving that back now I mean you can't just say give us mount Rushmore but we'll take money for this piece of land and it's not what -- -- just the different ways that -- -- city Indians but part of which was.
The major one was to allow.
Gambling -- gaming on Indian territories which brought a huge amount of money.
But they're also got lot of problems to have a lot of problems is also -- money as possible that reservation increased in size but -- -- reading actual resolution.
The solution is a casino.
On mount Rushmore could -- yes this -- because I I.
Never -- and now I'm gonna say that his client the UN takes back -- -- -- -- Greg gets his wish to put in a casino that really take your family there it's a fantastic different and you will not regret it I encourage you to do it.
That's and energetic as you know there's get there right after -- -- president Obama's figure out there which will be put up hopefully the next ten years -- when AT double hackles hockey sticks and brings it never.
-- he double hockey stick.
So I don't think I'm Sarah I don't have a swear -- coming up Richard -- A Republican senator in Indiana is in the primary fight of his life against the Tea Party candidate is this kind of -- good or bad for the GOP we're gonna debate it.
