I can't speak for other tribes but am pretty certain the Cherokee casinos aren't mob controlled. I know the chief and tribal council members personally. Baker is very mildly wealthy, but got that previous to being chief through his furniture store and being a part of a lawyer family. He didn't suddenly get a bigger house and/or more stuff when casinos became legal in Oklahoma. He even sold the chief's private jet saying it was a waste of money. He has a nice home, but nothing mind blowing. He drives a nice truck, but no porsches or lamborginis or anything like that. And Smith and Byrd are Upper Middle class at best. The rest of the council are middle class to lower middle class.
Welcome to CreateDebate
CreateDebate is a social debate community built around ideas, discussion and democracy. If this is your first time checking out a debate, here are some quick tips to help get you started:
- Arguments with the highest score are displayed first. Argument replies (both in favor and in opposition) are displayed below the original argument. To follow along, you may find it helpful to show and hide the replies displayed below each argument.
- To vote for an argument, use these icons: You have the power to cast exactly one vote (either up or down) for each argument. Once you vote, the icon will become grayed out and the argument's score will change. Yes, you can change your vote.
- Debate scores, side scores and tag scores are automatically calculated by an algorithm that primarily takes argument scores into account. All scores are updated in real-time. To learn more about the CreateDebate scoring system, check out the FAQ.
- When you are ready to voice your opinion, use the Add Argument button to create an argument. If you would like to address an existing argument, use the Support and Dispute link within that argument to create a new reply.
