Business as Usual!

By Larry Kibbey <kibbey@sierra.net>
Friday 27 October 1995

Why is the need for Tribal access to the Internet Important? With the House passing the budget bill Thursday and the Senate passing it friday by a margin of 52-47, it is now headed for the Office of the President for authorization or veto. Since the Federal Budget Cuts become known in Indian Country it is common knowledge of the impact the Cuts will have on much needed Indian Programs such as Health; Eucation; Welfare; Job Training; etc. The recent layoff of 1,800 employee's of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, with 1,500 at the tribal and agency level is an indication of how important it is to voice a concern to the Office of the President for a Veto.

In that the proposed Budget Cuts will in fact not only have an impact on Indian Country, but the fate of many programs across the country in the Non-Indian World will be effected as well, at what is called the Poverty Level.

The voices I heard on C-Span through the Call-In, about the final passage that took place in the Senate, that has been referred to as Historic, was from concerned Veterans and people who felt that this was nothing more than an attack on the Poor by the Republicans.

In that there is still much work yet to be done and that it is possible for a majority over-rule of a Presidental Veto by the Republicans, and still further Negotiations that can take place, it is still imperative that the Voice of the People be heard. By E-Mailing the Office of the President and Democratic Representatives, on a continued basis, is indeed a factor that would be relevent to the cause of why the Internet is an important tool in our effort to promote a unity of communication nation wide, not only for the Tribes of our Sovereign Nations, but for all who will in fact be effected by the proposed Budget Cuts.

Integrity towards inteligible factors must be a form established towards proper communication with all parties concerned, so that a constructive voice can be heard. In the struggle to maintain our Inherent Sovereign Rights, we must reach out across our Mother Earth today in spreading the word, through every endeavor possible, that includes the use of the Internet, Fax's and telephone usage, so that a strong direction will be arrived at in our effort to build on opposition towards the Republican Party and their effort to endorse a termination policy directed at our people, and the rest of the people of America who need support regarding the Budget Cuts and their opposition. Issues such as the Budget Cuts is why the Internet is so vital, because it can assist us in our endeavor's to reach out quickly to spread the word of an issue that may have an impact on us, so that we can establish a common voice of unity to help stop it, add our concerns and interest, and express that such issues are not for the common well being of the American Peopl. Help stop the Budget Cuts.

Request a Veto with a strong voice...
