Isn't it great, more foreign investors buying property in the US.
Casinos will not help unemployment. People will come from all over looking for a job, and when the Casinos open there will be more unemployment then there was befor Casinos.
Mississippi should be worried if Gambling takes off in Florida. Presently Floridians contribute greatly to their closest gambling mecca with much vehicle traffic, routine airline travel and air charters which fly into the Gulfport-Biloxi and Tunica markets. It's likely much of that will vanish, just as it slowly did in Nevada once states legalized gambling and Indian Casinos opened all over the country.
We don't need any more games of chances, which really just suck money from alot of people and give nothing in return. Sure the casino owners and the government will make alot of money. Don't get me wrong I have nothing against gambling. I just beleive it should had never left the borders of Neveda. We need Politicians to govern to make sure all the same type of businesses have the same playing against each other. Not to give one a leg up on the other like what has been happening for a number of years. Not to give a tax credit to one just because they move to your area. If a business is in business to make a profit they don't need handouts from any Government agency. PERIOD. If they need money then they should go borrow it from the banking system and I'm not talking about the Government bank. Taxpayers should not be funding Private Or Traded Companies unless they use their extra money and buy stock/shares from a Exchange. If a company needs to move then they should pay not expect the tax payers to pay for them. What kind of nonsense is that. Year after year companies are getting handouts from the various Governemnts and they are in business to make a profit and they do make profits plus the handouts. Its time for the American Governments to get down to doing the job they were Elected for or they need to GO. Either on their own or at the polls. Plain and Simple.
More corruption in many of our churches than in casinos ,by so called pillars of society .How many CEO's do you know that gauged their employees to live a life of luxury and profess to be Christian,or Jewish ?I've witnessed welfare recipiants squandering their money in a casino,but that's not the fault of the casino,but the fault of the government's failure to be accountable .
Short-term gain for long-term loss. It's like putting an antibiotic and bandaid on a dirty, infected wound. There would be small gains in construction employment for a limited time and then that would drop off. Afterwards it would bleed the residents of their savings and retirement income while a few profit greatly. On reservations I like to think of it as the Indians' revenge...
Las Vegas is broke.
It is a job. A few high skill jobs but many are low skill and are paid appropriately. No wonder why many usually belong to a union in the north and are just stuck in the south where they have anti union rules
Everyone has choices on how they will make a living. Pool cue or broom stick? one generates new wealth one recycles old money. Casino's are the death rattle of a dying economy. They are run by con men who offer the elusive fantasy of instant success and wealth. Has the Florida lottery succeeded in pulling this dying economy up? NO it has only taken resources from the poor to be wasted by the stupid.
soon there will be robberies there!
