    Here in Arizona, there is one standard plate. Anything else costs $25 + $25 per renewal. Even plates for the Native American tribes. And for us veterans.

    A waist is a terrible thing to mind.

      Given the divisions in the state, the large Native population, the extent to which the state is Native, the ignorance of the non-Native population here---in particular, the white Christian population who've essentially migrated here only in recent years---and the hostility toward the tribes here ...

      ::draws deep breath::

      And given the actions of state government to undermine tribal sovereignty, including recent moves to pipe the waters "owned" by Choctaw and Chickasaw Nations into OKC, such "arrangements" having been made behind closed doors and without knowledge or consent of the tribes ...

      I wouldn't trust these bozos anywhere near this issue. Not. For. One. Minute.

      Let the tribes here keep gaining strength, and let everyone else continue in their delusion of The Vanishing Native. And let those who choose have their own non-Native plate. They'll figure it out soon enough. They'll have to.

      Several years ago, Indiana put "In God We Trust" on the license plates.  After numerous protests, the offered another, generic, plate at no additional cost.  I don't remember that there was an actual legal challenge.  

      The state just decided to do the right thing.  I am a Christian, but I have the generic plate because I don't want my state involved in my religion.

      Indiana has more special interest plates than any other state.  Almost any group can get one.  Our state troopers can recognize all of them, but the cops from surrounding states just hate them.

    •  Yes, Indiana, noted above eom (0+ / 0-)
