Down with the Mask, the hell with Covid 19

I am a Native American and Swedish.

And I say the hell with mask and stop testing for a cold!

I am Leroy, I am for the sovereign Nation of Potawatomi

Face Mask Accidents and Fatalities

Returning to college and earning a bachelor in business administration has left me with a desire to research my own opinions. I find myself attempting to verify how true or factual my opinions maybe in comparison to society.

The society I live in is a “Tribal” society and many of the spiritual and ceremonial activities comprise of human contact and are impossible to attend if required to wear a mask.

Today these important activities of tribal and human existence are being threatened by government regulation, worldwide. We are being stripped of human contact and communication over media and government induced fear.

I do not argue that we spread diseases among each other and we all know to stay away from other when sick. Today governments are claiming the spread of a disease and requiring a mask to be worn in public. To satisfy the fear induced claims of this government supported health issue, we all must wear a mask.

Mask wearing can cause panic for many. I am one of those people. I can handle the panic most times but when it becomes an issue I almost pass out and have to take of the mask to regulate my breathing as I began to panic. My panic is caused by many years of abuse as well as many other people in the world.

When people panic, accidents happen.

How many accidents are being caused because of wearing a mask or even looking for a mask while driving a car or operating public transportation for others.

These statistics are very important to publish along side the growing numbers of reported deaths from the pandemic.

This information is crucial because many activities requiring mask use are also causing people pain, panic, and death due to adherence of this policy. The deaths in some cases are results of suicide. Many people are scared to visit a hospital in fear of being classified as positive for current virus as they will be subject to prevention methods being practiced by governments and its agencies through out the world.

Wearing masks is causing more issues that are not being reported and people like me are at risk of panic attacks that could result in severe injury to others.

Stress and depression are my personal causes for not wanting a mask but some have experience tramatic experiences in life and have to relive these while wearing masks and is very risky to other health and welfare.

I also believe it is dehumanizing and robbing us all of our spiritual connections to each other

I will be returning to work with the public and provide customer service to the best of my abilities. I really do not need this distraction and if a panic attack hits me I hope I am alone.

My personal opinion, masks are causing accidents and deaths, and I am going to research this deeper.

I also believe mask wearing are robbing us of something deeply spiritual when preventing human contact and faicial recognition.

Facebook babysitters

After posting some of the most graphically descriptive rap songs and never a warning or violation since using the social platform.

Evidently I have been reposting much false and often humorous posts, International fact checkers employed by Facebook have been repeatedly sending me notices about partially false information already posted by others.

This week has been especially scrutinized as the States in the Union began to open businesses to support themselves.

Maybe it is time to give up being babysat by a college dropout and his band on experts.

Gardening for Grandma

Today was a good day for planting some more flowers around the yard. Grandma had plenty of work for us to do as we played in the dirt all day!

She was very interesting and wanted a ride to play with the dirt. I wonder why children enjoy playing in the dirt so much? I know I use to enjoy it when ever possible!

Today was a good day to make memories for young ones in a very trying time for the world.

Children are what make everything worth an effort when they enjoy and learn to appreciate life.

We did good for Grandma today.

U.S. Airman Tyrone P. Wilsey

In remberence of my beloved brother who inspired me to continue even when times were tough. I miss and love him so much.

This is my brother while serving and a photo of him and my sister in high school. He was a devoted brother and father who left behind 2 sons and 2 daughters along with his wife, their mother.

He served during “Operation Desert Strorm” and was very proud of his service and accomplishments in the military.

He was a part of the flight maintainence team and was the “Crew Chief”, which earn him a spot on the plane. Pretty cool.

His greatest thrill was being able to be taken up, given the stick and perform a double barrel roll, I believe that is what he called it, I am not sure.

My brother would be astounded at the condition of the country today, I am sure.

Rest in Peace Brother as we will meet again.

Remembering Mom

Life as an adopted child can be difficult and challenging as my sister, brother and I experienced at a young age. Our biological parents were tragically separated from us and in their deaths we were introduced to the Wilsey family. Who took all three of us in after our tribal court awarded them legal custody.

Today I am blessed with my own son and several children I help raise, who are grandchildren to my girlfriend.

Today the children offered to help me water the gardens and it brought back memories of my mother who raised me. On this day of remembering it reminds me of why I enjoy some of the activites I participate in today.

If not for my Ma Wilsey, I probably would not have this desire to gardening and even painting. As challenging as it must have been for her to bring us into the home, she was continually providing an excellent example of how to take care of the family home. This included everything from cleaning to making gardens and weeding the lawn on the weekends while the fellow played ball.

Thanks Mom for instilling some value in me to pass along.

Have a blessed day and remember all those who motivate us to care for each other.

The Scooter Spill

Recently I visited an “essential business”, which is a big box lumberyard chain store and witnessed a very terrible accident. It did not kill anyone and no ambulance was called but the response of others was pretty alarming to me.

An elderly man, maybe 70, was attempting to back up his scooter down an incline from the back of his truck. He turned to quickly backing down and liteally jumped out of the way of the cart as it was going off the side of the ramp to early. He had a very serious accident as his head hit the pavement as he landed. Very scary.

I jumped out of the truck and ran to help.

As I approached another man, in a mask, approached to investigate and stopped about 6 feet short of assisting us and adjusted his mask. Soon a young man came bye and collected a cart to see what was going on, ” Can you get us help!?” I yelled somewhat loudly as I was in disbelief no one was helping.

I checked the man out and told someone to get a manager to write up the accident. I checked head and it was fine but i am sure he was very scared as he lay there waiting for help.

I still can not believe an able bodies man and a worker never bothered to offer any assistance with the man. I got him up as he said “help me up” and he recovered and went to shop.

I still cannot believe people are so scared now, we stop short of helping the elderly in fear of our own saftey.

I believe he was looking for his mask as his basket was in the back.

Golfing for Tribal Members

Golfing was first introduced to me by another tribal member many years ago. Although being raised in Florida I never pursued the sport until I moved back to my birthplace on the Hannahville Indian Reservation, located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. My fellow tribal member did not pursue the sport but I was hooked from my first “good drive” off the tee.

Today tribal members of the Hannahville Indian Community have two professional style golf courses to choose from and many tribal members play the sport today. It has become a central attraction point for our gaming operations and draws many new patrons from many parts of the US and Canada.

The tribal management hosted its first golfing tournament that includes its newest golf course called Sage Run. The Island Resort Championship style golf courses host many charity style golf outings that benefit many local non-profits not normally associated with tribal business.

As a tribal member, it was exciting and comforting to see the tribal governments business operations open for business. Our golf courses are full serviced and with well manicured greens and fairways, for an excellent golfing experience.

We, the Wisconsin Potawatomi

Our Tribal Constitution was formed by 47 tribal member in the mid 1930’s. A time when there was not much hope for tribal members. They formed their own tribal government with-in the the State of Michigan boundaries and often make government to government agreements with the State.

Tribal Government Office

The tribal government has an agreement with Potawatomi and Indian people that forms the basis for our National Constitution, as some may perceive the document, but non the less it is our forming documents that establishes a relation ship with the people and elected tribal government (s).

The following is an expert of our forming documents:

UNITED STATES
DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR
OFFICE OF INDIAN AFFAIRS

CONSTITUTION AND BYLAWS OF THE
HANNAHVILLE INDIAN COMMUNITY
MICHIGAN

APPROVED JULY 23,1936

UNITED STATES
GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE
WASHINGTON: 1936

CONSTITUTION AND BY-LAWS OF THE HANNAHVIILLE
INDIAN COMMUNITY

PREAMBLE

We, the Potowatomies residing near Wilson and Harris in Menominee County, Michigan, on lands reserved for the Wisconsin Pototatomies residing in Michigan, in order to form a representative organization, to promote the welfare of our people, to preserve the land for ourselves and our children, and to provide homes for all the Indians of this Community who need them, do establish this Constitution.

No where in the document is it stated the tribal government formed this arrangment.

Just like the US Constitution, ours begins with,

WE the Pottawatomie, not We the Tribal Government, or State Government.

Tribal employment

Well 15 months of applying for jobs that interest me I finally get the Food and Beverage Supervisor position with full benefits after a 90-day probation evaluation.

I hope these guys are ready for me again!

If it does not relate to customer service and food quality I probably am not entertaining it.

I was reminded about Facebook policies. Personally I think Facebook posts are the social media jobs to police, which they doing anyway.

There are 14 other supervisors so this should be quite a challenge if nothing else.if I apply Dad’s rules. Being productive is key and I will be contributing to the success of the tribe, even in a small sense.

See you all at the Island Resort & Casino
