Assemblyman Lynn Stewart, R-Henderson. "Our neighborhoods need protection. Our tourists on the Strip need protection."

From what exactly? The protection we need is to keep our money safe from politicians.

As Mr. Sun's decision demonstrates, Bon Jovi concerts no longer merit sending a writer to review a Bon Jovi performance. A review of a Bon Jovi performance takes far fewer than one thousand words as demonstrated below:

Bon Jovi brings back nothing new (except even higher ticket prices)
(Las Vegas, Nevada; April 21, 2013) Apparently, if you've seen one over-priced Bon Jovi concert, you've seen them all. Same tired performance poses performed in the same spot in the same songs that have been performed for decades to include the anticipated reaction of female fans when Jon Bon Jovi turns his back to the audience and shakes his butt at the same part of the same songs. Even Bon Jovi's new material used the same poses in songs written by the same writer behind most of Bon Jovi's big ones, Desmond Child . Unfortunately, the satisfaction of the fans speaks more about them than the Bon Jovi performance: nothing new here but the packaging; move along.

The Rolling Stones performance scheduled three weeks after the Bon Jovi concert provides a unique opportunity to compare and contrast two monolithic acts in the entertainment world. The collective ego of both acts measure their success by their respective tour gross. The Rolling Stones performance will reveal whether top grossing tours, or at least two of them, are dedicated to dusting off successful proven formulas they repeatedly dusted off in the past, or dedicated to create new show materials and the risk entailed. One act has already provided the answer. The other will have the opportunity in twenty-one days.

Anyone who takes exception to this review, and there are likely to be many, should either point out any new performance highlights, or ask the "artists" to create something new.

The SS issue is the same as many other American ills. Programs are designed to favor the older baby boomers. Despite what they say, they don't really care about what happens later as long as they get their own. Fortunately, they will die off soon, take their twisted views and lust for power with them, and we can implement new programs.

Over the past thirty years, I have observed the corporate sector get pretty much every policy it has asked for and watched as the working class quality of life has consistently deteriorated.

The corporate sector wants policies that make things easier for them and removes any uncertainty. It doesn't view the working class worthy of ANYTHING that improves the working class quality of life, or removes uncertainty for it. It uses the working class to socialize losses by increasing the working classes' financial support of corporate initiatives and mistakes while, of course, privatizing profits.

The actual results of the corporate policies are now evident. They got their way. The results were not what they claimed they would be. Some might even say, "Not even close."

Corporations should spend as much time working as they spend trying to get out of it.

If the corporate sector really wants certainty, here's some: Corporations are going to be paying more taxes. Finally.
