In spite of the Cromwell regime’s bumbling and fumbling of the casino ball, the Massachusetts Gaming Commission said they won’t give away the gaming license for 90 days . The Commission will not accept commercial bids in the Southeastern Massachusetts region until Marc 15, 2013..
I have struggled to imagine what the Commission hopes to accomplish by doing so, particularly in light of the fact that every month wasted waiting for Cedric to pull a rabbit out of his hat is a month of lost revenue for the Commonwealth. I sense that the Governor and the Commission are getting more than a little bit impatient with ol’ Running Bear and would like to be rid of him, but without the risk of seeming so. Then it dawned on me.
March 15 is a month after the upcoming Tribal elections to be held on February 10, 2013. Call me paranoid, but color me skeptical. I would not put it past Cedric to campaign on the prospect that his re election will bring about a casino. The false hope that he and his cronies have cultivated, and the debt that they have saddled us with can only result in the utter destruction of our Tribal community and all we have worked for over the years. Don’t be fooled. Turn Ceddie and his hench(wo)men out of office.
“Run, Ceddie, Run!”
