I received the following recording tonight while on the phone with a friend. Automated Recorded message stated:
There are 23 Indian Owned Casino’s in Michigan and now they are trying to get an OFF RESERVATION one built….ETC……..
Each dawn as we rise, lord we know all to well, We face only one thing – a pit filled with hell. To scratch out a living the best that we can, But deep in the heart, lies the soul of a man. With black covered faces, and hard calloused hands, We work the dark tunnels, unable to stand. To labour and toil as we harvest the coals, We silently pray “lord please harvest our souls”.
GOD SPEED TO ALL THAT LOVED AND KNEW THEM FOR OUR HEARTS ARE HEAVY WITH YOU.

Ceilings crash the walls collapse broken by the lies
That your misfortune brought upon us
I went your way ten years ago and I’ve got nothing to say
AND WE WILL SEE IT FROM THE HEAVENS.

There are about a hundred words I could describe Shaun White’s performance Wednesday Evening at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.
Awesome, Exquisite, Heart Pounding, Excellent, Bellissimo, Exuberant are just a few.
Dan Adkins is an Imbecile.
Thinking he can attempt to swindle unknowing individuals into this so called Petition to SAVE MI. RACING. When as written the only ones who will be saved is this GROUP he’s been hired by. Bernard Hartman and Herbert Tyner. Hazel Park Raceway real estate moguls. Or rather MORONS.
Recent Articles in the Oakland Press & Royal Oak Daily Tribune & MLive.com don’t even begin to tell the real story. Dan Adkins has himself being portrayed as some Savior for Saving Horse Racing in Michigan. And he is anything but.

God help us all from this twisted man.
Two Jockeys at Philadelphia Park on Friday January 8, 2010 got into a fist fight.
Now having worked at the Detroit Race Course for 23 years, that’s not exactly breaking news. Many Jock’s over the years have fought after a race in the Jock’s room over many of things. Mostly over somebody they thought interfered with their ride.
So what’s the big deal?
Never have the fights broke out DURING THE RACE! This one was during the 5th race at Philly Friday.
WHO IS HE KIDDING?
CHENEY AND TERRORISTS HAVE A LOT IN COMMON.
Both praying that AMERICA gets hit again. But Cheney praying more.

And yet not one word on our LOCAL MEDIA NEWS STATIONS.
WXYZ, WDIV, WJBK, DETROIT NEWS, OR DETROIT FREE PRESS.
On November 5th because of the Veto of funding to the ORC which in reality was already dissolved by Governor Granholm. Because of lack of money for racing officials. ALL 5 MICHIGAN HORSE TRACKS WILL HAVE TO CEASE OPERATION. That means ALL Simulcasting & Live Racing.
And yet the only Media coverage I’ve seen is on links below. Out of Mid/Mi.
The Breeders Cup this year is on Friday November 6th & 7th.
Because of the ORC LAYOFFS: The Michigan HBPA was notified that effective November 5, 2009, due to the Governor’s veto of the funding for the ORC, that all ORC will be laid-off. That will cease all racing activity to include live and simulcasting statewide.
Board approves ‘racino’ ballot petition.
The four-member Board of State Canvassers, a state elections panel, approved unanimously the wording for a constitutional amendment submitted by Racing to Save Michigan.
And now all the Casino’s hair has been raised.
So why the worry? Well I’ll tell you WHY.
On Oct. 8, 2009 Governor Granholm dissolved The Office of Racing Commissioner, and put us under the Michigan Gaming Control Board. Horse racing was always under Agriculture. It was mentioned in several Detroit newspaper articles that state’s House Appropriations Committee wanted to vote on conducting a study if other forms of gaming at all Mi. horse tracks would bring more money into the state. The price tag of this study? $20k.
Are they nuts?
