Bottom line, locals should get some kind of kickback in any political scenario.

And I'd take ten locals (or their eBay equivalent) over one peeping baby bird "scholarship" case.

Please take in the Burningman event and stage it on the reservation.

Larry and I would gladly accept free admission to all tribal members as part of the contract!

Just get us off out of the government EYE!

The event may not be the spiritual equilvalent of the Powwow and it never will, but it does have its resemblence for to enjoy life is a spiritual rebirth that makes us all new again reconnecting us to the eternal spirit.

Not all of Burningman's attendees are spiritual, some are just scamming the event for their own good not contributing even a good will. don't judge us by them for the same type even attends the powwow!

Please accept my apologies for the fee increase. It wasn't raised with the intention of hurting you, but to discourage those that attended the event mainly as a freak show for their own enjoyment without ever becoming a part of it.

No, they should repackage their spiritual traditions for my lazy ass enlightenment. I'm booking a shaman for the 10th.

I am genuinely interested to know what is so horribly disruptive to your daily life in this situation?
Seems to me that the traffic would be the least of the disruption. Every year after Exodus, I see tons of Burning Man garbage littering the road-side... either purposfully discarded or insufficiently secured. It's probably the only thing about Burning Man that makes me feel ashamed.

Pack out your garbage, people! Secure it tightly! Educate virgins about this! As you drive home, consider pulling-over and picking up one of the bags that someone else has carelessly littered.

Buy a couple of Indian Tacos on the way home and support the local economy. They're delicious! (I usually need Pepto Bismol afterwards, but they're tasty enough to where I make Indian Tacos a tradition)

Exactly 400 years ago today, on 25 August 1609, the Italian astronomer and philosopher Galilei Galileo showed Venetian merchants his new
creation, a telescope – the instrument that was to bring him both scientific immortality and, more immediately, a whole lot of trouble.

...Venus showed a range of moon-like phases, something which could not happen if both it and the sun orbited the earth.

Galileo's discoveries were, perhaps predictably, not best welcomed by the Catholic church, and he spent the final decade of his life under house arrest.

Imagine if your family was murdered,slaughtered,kidnapped put in boarding schools, had your people brainwashed and tortured and kicked off your land where you and your people lived for thousands of years.

Then imagine if you, as a surviving relative TODAY are forced into povery by things that happened hundreds of years ago.

Then imagine that your plight, your pain, and your families struggle has not only gone by the wayside, ignored, but has turned into an acceptable joke and subject of entertainment for the very people who murdered your family in the first place. with early TV depicting every native as a savage, or a mocking sports mascot running around with a peace pipe and tomahawk.

Then imagine this tiny plot of land they've given you, literally your backyard is in the way of a huge party, and thousands of people are going to trounce through your backyard, leaving trash, empty stores where you normally buy your food, having your children get ranover by speeders, and have those people critisize you as if you have no reason to complain.

The symantics of race are not in question here (yet again) we all know race is an idea not based in science. But the reality is people are treated differently based on stereotypes and this is stupid, cruel and unfair, what makes it all the more insulting though is when people who have no experience with any of it claim that the plight of people who still suffer today is somehow equivelant to those who are not met with those hardships at this time. I know people today who were kidnapped as children and forced into seperate boarding schools from their siblings in order to be christianized. They don't know how to find their parents or their siblings to this day.

Kudos for a black president, I am happy. But its a beginning, not an end.
Oh god, its posts and views like this that are WAYYYY out of context.

There is not a SINGLE demographic that has not been exploited, burned, harassed, enslaved, or conqured by some other demographic.

The OP was pissed about her ticket going up in price. Boohoo - it sucks, but as pointed out here. The BMORG is a NEvada LLC, and is entitled to charge whomever it wants - what it wants for a ticket. Contrary to popular belief BM is closer to a rock concert put on by a promoter (BMORG) - than the Hajj.
Being a private event on Federal land that is leased, they have the right to exclude, charge, and prosecute for crashing, can evict at whim, and cn not even put it on at all. It is also trademarked and vigorously defended by attorneys.

So put out the 100 extra bucks, or not.

Most religious events have a higher profit margin than concerts.

True - but the overhead on Black Rock dirt is pretty low as well. Gyre - you and I will still be bumping into each other 10, 20 or more years from now on out there.....The final cost is truly relative. 160.00 for a ticket is not much for a 7 day event to me. Especially when youll burn 8 bucks in fuel to get there is not much.

Many people spend a thousand or more, just to get to the gate.
