WOW ! I'll start holding my breath.....Right now !!!

wardancer 09-12-2014 12:20 PM

Just kidding ! LOL

This is GREAT news IF they follow through. They've been "going to" send out checks for over a year or more. Every time something else holds it up. I'm hopeful , but skeptical !

Don't count your chickens until they hatch, getting free money is as scarce as hen's teeth.

Sorry, so some benefit whilst the rest of us look on. No worries.

NOW now, there's enuff COWbell for everyone!:hmm3grin2

Plus think of all the years Ms. Eloise suited up, battle after battle...counting coup in the court room. Now there's a true warrior!

wyo_rose 09-15-2014 04:00 PM

Yes, it's not fair. Nothing in life is fair!! Some are getting the minimum (like me $862), some are getting more (like my bro $4000+) and some are getting SCADS (like my bestest goodest brother/nephew/bff LB)!!! Hey bro, can you float me a loan later this week? :)

Kudo and much prayers to heaven for Eloise Cobell, taking a stand and sticking it out!! Seeing something wrong and trying to make it right.

Thank you to my grandma who left a little $$, thus creating me and my family an IIM account, and leaving us some land so we can get in on this latter part too.

Only my youngest daughter has an IIM, so the others are kinda jelly. :rolleyes:

wardancer 09-15-2014 05:16 PM

You are exactly right Wyo. I'm lookin at the min. also , but I got family that are actually in a bad way financially , they are going to be back in good standing when they get it.

wyo_rose 09-15-2014 06:14 PM

Yes!! That's good to hear! My older brother is in the same boat. He worked his entire life after leaving the Navy (10 years), but now cannot find a job due to the discrimation ran rampant in one of the local border towns.

I forgot to include the category of some getting ZERO ZILCH NADA. Sorry, HOWEVER, please put in for a scholarship at the American Indian College Fund, which is getting a big boost from the Cobell payout.

A friend Of mine she told me the checks would be out about 5-7 days.

Ndnsoldierboy 09-15-2014 09:42 PM

My Brother who passed away back in 1998 has money there, and I do not have my niece's phone or address but her Grandfather does and told him to call his Granddaughter and she will have Cobell money waiting for her. I hope she has her Father's information to fill out the paperwork to get her money.
