Re: Vegas Top Memorial Day destination....why?

You just got thru lecturing Glenn that not all people share his point of view. That is one thing we agree upon. Any business or non profit that doesn’t focus on its bottomline doesn’t normally last very long. And by the way, most for profit businesses are not corporations. I highly doubt you have b...

Re: 2024 General Elections Thread

No I have said all along the special prosecutor is where Trump should be investigated and charged. All the others even though I do think he is guilty of most of the charges are 100pct politically motivated. They broke state law, if they didn’t prosecute, then anyone could do it.

You obviously haven't been to Vegas, just the outskirts. 40 million people visits Vegas a year, or 100 thousand a day.

If you don't have money to burn Vegas doesn't want you there. Take a couple going to Vegas for an event staying 3 days. Airfare 500...

You always see things from your own viewpoint and can’t see it from anyone else’s. I looked at your link, and I’d say there’s no place else on that list that you would be interested in, either. Vegas is unique. Lots of cheap rooms on the outskirts or downtown. The strip is going to be expensive. The...

It depends on the crime. If a person in Florida is being charged with a crime where the penalty is going to be the same or nearly the same as a crime committed in Arizona, they will.not spend the time and money to bring them back. The reason being is the criminal will simply plead guilty getting no...

That is not what we are talking about. We are talking about the fact that the democratic party has put forth a proposal which allows abortion on demand up to the moment of birth. Unless the individual states put in restrictions. That proposal is just as extreme as any put forth by the radical right...

My thoughts are he is under indictment in other states and when found guilty of those crimes will receive an appropriate sentence.
