Hiding Housing Horrors

Once again the Cromwell Administration is engaged in coverup.This time it’s becoming more apparent that panic has set in. Boy, video cameras at the last Council meeting would have provided wonderful evidence of the total idiocy we are subjected to day in day out. And it’s heaped upon us by people who aren’t even real Mashpee!

Enough of that.   Back to the story.  There’s not enough seaweed to cover the many disbursements to that fascinating Indian maiden Marie Stone, affectionately known as “Tah Tah” or Firebug. Before Tah Tah snuck on to the Council, she had trouble paying her mortgage.  We’ve all had that problem.  But that was because she didn’t have a job and hadn’t had one in 10 years probably because she was setting cars on fire. But what’s the excuse now? She’s  the Tribal Secretary (or whatever) with a huge salary in excess of $ 70k  ( and now 2 assistants) she needs money from Housing? Not to mention grabbing more cash from  the slush fund operated by her ever so close bud Cedric the Tobey to pay for you know, fines and an  impounded car about to be repossessed.

Well, Tah Tah hit the internet when she found out that Carlton Hendricks, Jr. wanted to verify reports of  serious irregularities discovered by some Housing Committee members (everybody is scared now).  Tah Tah starts trying to scare the tribal members with claims that Hendricks wants their SS#s….wants to steal their identities and on and on. Little too close for comfort and Tah Tah  wants no more scrutiny. Course no one believed any of that, and it only confirmed Tah Tah’s sad mental state.Tah Tah is a powder keg. The longer Cedric let’s her stay on the Council, the more danger she represents to everyone. And besides, her mood swings are prone to make her call Tribal Elders weeping and searching for sympathy.  No luck there.

According to the HUD Regional Director, there is no regulation that prevents a Council  member or any elected official from reviewing Housing disbursements.The only thing standing in the way of a review are those with something to hide….the Cromwell Administration.  Cedric and his  new Lieutenant Jessie (Tobey) Baird said Hendricks was not looking at anything and that was “it.” Ya Jessie.  This is coming from the person who has as much credibility as those pine needles and sea foam that she says we came from. More foolishness visa vi Jessie….she is now performing naming ceremonies. Great. Who made her Medicine Woman ?

But the hidden secrets in Housing are  actually well known.  Confirmation of the discrimination against certain tribal  families is another pitiful fact ….but none the less a serious federal crime.But it was also disclosed and confirmed that former Vice President David Pocknett reviewed housing disbursements and books…

The messy Council meeting was not only dominated by the Housing coverup….there was more scandal.  Yvonne Frye Avant got her step daughter a very nice IT contract rumored to be $75k or more.  Yvonne gets to move back home, and there we are. She had the nerve to ask,.” What are you trying to say?” What the hell do you think? Yvonne holds the Slimy Award record for all time, Jessie is a close 2nd.

They were holding the meeting in the new  tribal building.  They tried to move into it last week without an occupancy permit.  Right….. Jessie’s lies and handy work ….she never got the permit and was going to just occupy the building that isn’t even finished. The temporary permit comes with a hefty $75k bond. Anyway the Mashpee Fire Department came down and told everyone to get out until they got the permit.

Yah that’s SOVEREIGNTY HUH? Ha! The overpriced boondoggle (that we pay 21% interest on) is parked on land we don’t even own….course there isn’t too much conversation about that old Land in Trust bugga boo….eh Dr. Jo? So different from your gigantic nation eh? A small tribe is a nightmare to manage when the worst ones are running the government like it’s a brothel, shaming us every day with their ignorance and destruction of  traditions.

Cedric the Tobey jumped on the elevator with his private swat team.  They also substitute as friends. Hendricks asked him, how could he go up to his fancy penthouse while the Mashpee were suffering? Cedric had no comment.






Pot, Meet Kettle!

I was following an exchange on Facebook the other day and this came up from a well known council member:

“Wekon Uppeshau It’s not for investor it’s for Carlo Hendricks and Laura Miranda to see they are the ones insisting the Chairman give him access . With all the identity theft going on in this world, trust me you don’t want to give your shit over to a thief and convicted felon …. But hey those are the monkeys you wanted to vote in.. Ya happy now!!

Oh yeah by the way all the jobs we created for you guys they don’t want you to have them either how do I know. There’ rallying up tribal members to vote no on the budget. Like Dr. Phil says @hows that working for ya?”

Pretty strong language from someone whose lips are firmly and corruptly attached to the Tribal Teat.  Maybe we should look back to some of her past:

Money is no object


Everyone knows how crooked the tribal housing program is but would you believe that nearly  $100 k has been given out to a very small group of tribal members, mostly Fryes of course…this is extra money on top of the undeserved salaries, granted without qualifications and the infamous 184 housing program loans.  Okay.  It’s called discriminatory practices, frowned upon by HUD, aka the federal government.There’s a clear pattern of discrimination against  tribal members when it comes to the distribution of federal Housing and Urban Development revenues.  Not a Peters, Hicks, Pocknett, Mills, or any of the rest of the tribe got a dime.  It’s a problem. It’s a big problem.

The Tribal Administrator, let’s call him Dr. Jo ( short for Navajo ).  We are a little teeny tiny tribe compared to his of hundreds of thousands.  He pretends he doesn’t know whats  going on sending out all those job descriptions and he still hires Fryes from as far away as Arizona….and his  new hires tribal membership is not verifiable. Way to go Dr. Jo.  Explain your role in the cover up.  You think you’re so smart. When this craziness starts unraveling…soon…you will curse Mark Tilden (Navajo Joe) for bringing you to Mashpee for the quick cash.  Yah.


Plainville Ain’t So Plain Any More

Looks like the little town of Plainville has jumped out ahead of the pack.  A town just north of North Attleboro, (I never heard of it until now) with a population just over 8,000 souls will in all probability host a slots parlor at its rather modest, until now, harness racing track.  There is nothing modest, though, about the planned facility.

“Plans include a 106,000 sq.ft. addition, renovation of the existing facility to include a Doug Flutie’s Sports Pub, intimate entertainment venue, upscale dining, four-venue food court and 1,250 of the hottest slot machines!”  (From their website.)

The question in my mind is, how will this affect the Tribe’s plans for a resort casino just a few miles away in Taunton?  The Plainville site is right off route 495, and would appear to have better access from the north and the Providence area.  Also looks like they are ready to hit the ground running, and have already started preliminary construction work.

And to think:  they never had to pay Bill Delahunt a single penny!
