I've said it before and i'll say it again... none of this would be happening if women ran the country! Women know how to compromise and do what is best for the good of the country not the party they represent. There would not be any of this competitive junk going on. The only person that has done their job flawlessly in the past three years is Hillary Clinton. Everyone, including Obama should be looking at her as an example of how to do your job correctly! I wish now I had voted for Hillary instead of Obama in 2008. A Clinton is exactly what we need in the White House right now!

Coming out to Vegas at the end of August for an indefinite stay! Can't wait to start playing the lines on my Patriots! WooHoo!

Why can't Metro do their jobs, and get all the unsavory elements off the strip. Send them down to the corner of Maryland Parkway and Flamingo where they were four years ago. No one cares anymore about what happens to our great city. Just a few years ago, it was considered the new entertainment Capitol. Now, it's turning into the new Detroit of the west coast. Not Coool!

If you look carefully at who is running the show in Washington, it's all men!! Obama, Biden, Reid, Boehner, McConnell, Kantor, etc. Republican or Democrat, they all suck!! If this debt ceiling vote debacle were run by women, this thing would have been solved a month ago! Women never would have let it get as far as it did! I'm a man, I voted for Obama over Hillary Clinton in the primary and now realise what a huge mistake that was! Only female candidates get my votes from now on... no sex scandals, no political posturing, and I know the job will get done correctly. If Gabby Giffords can leave her hospital bed to cast her vote in the house, none of these men have any excuse for not showing up to cast theirs!

What the hell is going on in Vegas lately? I used to live there in the late '90's- until around 2005. There was never any of this crap going on then!! The Metro Police were EVERYWHERE!! You couldn't get away with bad behavior at all on the Strip. It seems to me ever since they built City Center, things haven't been the same. The cops need to increase their presence, and not allow the obvious criminal element on the strip. I'm not talking about the handbill smut peddlers... they have always been there, or the street performers or water vendors either... although a designated area for them to hang out in like Grand Central Station in New York or Balboa Park in San Diego isn't a bad alternative. No, I'm talking about the very obvious gangbangers and thugs that have taken over the strip at night. They intimidate tourists and are generally up to no good from the time they walk onto the strip until the time they decide to leave. I consider myself a very decent gambler and love to travel out to Vegas about 3 or 4 times a year. When I do I wager big and may not be a "Whale" of any kind but definitely in the category of a "High Roller". I am considering limiting my business to my local Casinos in Connecticut, Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun until this issue of feeling safe on the Vegas Strip again can be addressed.And it better be soon... a lot of my fellow High Rollers are feeling the same way.
