9. That's a fine idea....NOT.
Outta that house there, Millie...I know you spent the last thirty years caring for your mother, who has died and left you the joint, but you can't inherit this house...and the land under it goes to the Oughtafuckyou Tribe...

Solving the issues of the government's horrible treatment of native populations isn't going to happen by fucking over present citizens, who had nothing to do with the policies enacted a hundred plus years ago.

It's an idiotic construct.
