I wasn’t there, but I heard that last night’s Tribal Council meeting was a dooooozy! Seems that Ceddie was upset that people were asking inconvenient questions that he did not want to answer, so he ended the meeting and went into executive session. Not only that, but he threatened to put patrolman (formerly detective) Frye on the payroll to arrest any Tribe member or council member who has the temerity to question his authoritah! Come on people, is this what you elected him for? I don’t know about you, but I don’t need any dictator running my Tribe.
The 800 pound running bear in the weetu is the fact that we are in horrendous debt and we can not get any idea of where it is going. Or how we are going to pay it back. Wouldn’t it be nice if we had leadership that would level with us? We can take it. We have survived nearly four hundred years of adversity and we are still here. If we have to endure this kind treatment from our own, we may need to apologize to the Pilgrims.
From Wikipedia: “Megalomania is a psychopathological disorder characterized by delusional fantasies of power, relevance, or omnipotence. ‘Megalomania is characterized by an inflated sense of self-esteem and overestimation by persons of their powers and beliefs’. Historically it was used as an old name for narcissistic personality disorder prior to the latter’s first use by Heinz Kohut in 1968, and is used these days as a non-clinical equivalent. It is not mentioned in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) or the International Statistical Classification of Diseases (ICD).”
