Posted on 09/13/2020 4:50:41 AM PDT by Kaslin
Oh, boy, do I have a story for you. Who doesn't love Las Vegas? It's America's favorite city. It may be the world's favorite city. It's my adopted hometown for 20 years now.
Until recently, I never thought anything, or anyone, could ever destroy Las Vegas. I was wrong. Everyone needs to hear about what's happening here. Las Vegas and the state of Nevada are in deep trouble. Trust me, you're next -- if you put Joe Biden and Democrats in charge of America.
What happens in Vegas doesn't stay in Vegas. We are the canary in the coal mine. What happens in Vegas is coming to your city and state. What happens in Vegas is a warning for the entire USA.
Here are a few Vegas stories you won't see in television ads.
First, I have to tell you about Democratic Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak. The D isn't just for Democrat. It stands for DUMB, as in clueless, ignorant, blind, deaf and very dumb.
We've somehow won the dreaded reverse lottery. The odds of having a governor this incompetent, cowardly and insane with Trump Derangement Syndrome all at once is somewhere between 1 in a million and 1 in a billion.
Our clueless or suicidal (take your pick) governor made the decision to shut down the Nevada economy back in March, thereby killing the entertainment capital of the world. Six months later, while casinos are open, bars are still closed, and churches are limited to 50 congregants.
This madman is killing both the saints and the sinners. The bar owners and church leaders should get together and sue. They could title the lawsuit "The Catholics and Convicts Vs. the Governor of Nevada."
But wait, it gets much worse. Because all events are still limited to 50 attendees or less, there are no conventions, conferences or concerts in Vegas. We are the entertainment and convention center of America -- except without the entertainment or conventions.
Although pools are open, our guests have to wear masks while sitting by the pool, in direct sun, with temperatures around 110 degrees most of the summer. How refreshing! We're now the mask-at-the-pool capital of America.
While you have to wear a mask while sitting by the pool, even though you're outdoors and chairs are six feet apart, only steps away, hundreds of guests are in the pool without masks, kissing, dancing, gyrating and drinking in a tangled mass of human anatomy. Obviously, COVID-19 only attacks people lying in a lounge chair, not dancing in the pool inches from one another.
My fiance and I love Vegas' world-class restaurants. We sit only feet from the bar. But no one can sit at the bar. Live music is banned. Obviously, while COVID-19 won't attack you at your table next to the bar, it will kill you instantly if you sit at the bar or listen to live music.
Mail-in voting is encouraged for everyone in Nevada. But we all stand next to hundreds of other Nevadans at Costco, Walmart, supermarkets, banks and CVS. No problem. COVID-19 clearly only kills voters, not shoppers.
Our governor demanded President Trump cancel his political rally for this weekend but never said a word as thousands of often violent Black Lives Matter protestors caused mayhem on the Vegas strip 20 nights in a row. COVID-19 must only be spread by Republicans.
These are just a few of the mandates set forth by the dumbest governor in America. Because of all these absurd, idiotic, confusing rules made up by liberal bureaucrats with at least one chromosome missing, Vegas just lost the National Finals Rodeo to Dallas, Texas, for the first time in over 30 years. Dallas will allow 20,000 spectators. Our Nevada governor would only allow 50 spectators in Las Vegas.
That's thousands of jobs lost, thousands of small businesses damaged, hundreds of millions in revenue lost. And, of course, there's no tax revenue either. How will our socialist governor fund his massive welfare programs and failing public schools?
But the NFR is just one event. We've lost all of them. Every convention is canceled. There is no tax revenue to pay for any government services, let alone our gleaming new NFL stadium for the Las Vegas Raiders. No fans are allowed to attend for the entire season. Where will the tax money to pay the mortgage come from? Oh, boy.
Did I mention that while over 200,000 Nevadans lost their jobs because of this dumb and dumber governor's decisions, many of them still (six months later) can't get unemployment checks? The system is horribly broken. The governor can't find any way to fix it, six months later. But his unemployment department did manage to close for the Labor Day holiday -- while tens of thousands of Nevadans are starving.
I was wrong. It's easy to destroy Las Vegas, formerly the greatest city on Earth. Just put one dumb, clueless, incompetent liberal with Trump Derangement Syndrome in charge.
If you like what has happened to Vegas, put Joe Biden in the White House. Then watch as what's happening in Vegas destroys the entire USA.
AMEN!! NEVER ELECT A DEMOCRAT.....FOR ANYTHING!!
Is Planet 13 still open? If so, there is hope.
The man may have a point, but it would be better not to start with this kind of hyperbole. I mean no insult to the people who chose to live there, but some of us are not attracted by the vapid glitz of the tourist industry there.
Bars in Texas remain closed but if they put in a kitchen, they become restaurants and can reopen and we have a Republican governor.
So sad,, how a Democrat mayor destroyed a thriving economy.
He gives Gov. Steve Sisolak too much credit.
The governor has Democrat cabinet and State legislature assisting him in his destruction of the formerly Great State of Nevada.
“Bars in Texas remain closed but if they put in a kitchen, they become restaurants and can reopen and we have a Republican governor.”
Indeed. I am reading more and more about Texan’s growing disappointment with that governor. It appears his edicts are just as nonsensical regarding this issue as many democrat edicts.
Our domestic Dems have imported socialist voters by the millions, dangling all sorts of freebies as bait.
I do appreciate his enthusiasm for where he lives and his points are all good ones about the governor, but after three days in Las Vegas I’m like “get me out of here!” Showing my age, I know.
Never been there and have no desire to go.
I did have a friend, now deceased, that had a great love of Las Vegas that made several trips there every year.
He had the screen name here on FR of Las Vegas Dave.
I play allot of poker out in Vegas or maybe I should say used to play allot of poker. Over the last 40 years I’ve got to know many of the top players who live in Vegas. They’ve pretty much given up on Vegas ever coming back to it’s glory days. You can still find a game in the casino’s but you have to wear a mask and they have dividers and limited seating. The Governor and the Mayor have gutted not just Vegas but the entire state. The biggest game of the year the WSOP was cancelled, Binions poker room has been shut down (For poker players that was sacred ground). I don’t see me ever going back.
DeWine claims to be Republican.
It’s bad rhetoric. Instead of starting with a point all of us would agree with [Marxists in local gubmint destroying their cities] he starts with a point that many of us disagree with. Why? To draw us in and win us over?
I love Binions
—the Harry Reid machine-primarily the Culinary Workers Union and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU)— can vote upwards of 10-15000 illegals which now control the state—
Considering that there are 50 states and governors in at least 10 are "incompetent, cowardly and insane with Trump Derangement", I would say the odds are more like 1 in 5.
It is amazing to me the amount Of criticism around here. I am sorry Wayne Allen Root started with hyperbole. But Iconic Las Vegas is the embodiment of America. It is big, bright, the best most over the top in the world. It shouldnt exist because its in the middle of the desert, yet American ingenuity has converted a waste land into a world class resort.
It is synonymous with the best of the best. Entertainers have arrived eleven booked in Vegas. It allows for the idea that anyone can play hard
It is in the American West a place our American fathers tamed as ir was our manifest destiny. It is an American built oasis in the desert which draws the attention of literally the entire world
So as for the hyperbole...the saddest thing occurring here is the perpetual mission of people to criticize that which made America well American. And just by saying no insult you add the word BUT which means ignore everything before that world. Then you go on to say some of us dont like vapid tourist destination. Fine. We are aware id your objection. The real question is why do we care. Believe it or not someone erudite enough to write this critique is probably smart enough to know that some people dont like Vegas
But you cant celebrate Americana and Americans. There are probably things you like that are uniquely American that other people dont. But freedom means allowing other people to enjoy or conduct their lives in liberty. Your statement is destructive to the unifying purpose of getting back to normal. However like many around here, you believe your opinion expressed which is insulting is helpful. It is not.
I would be nice if the contingent of freepers who need to criticize anything not aligned with them would just let some things go. People on Vegas are Americans and deserve our full throated defense from the tyranny of their governor in all areas: economic destruction, loss of medical choice, and individual liberty
You failed to discern this is about American ideals. Not a city
Shame on you.
