    Steve Wynn, my dear, under OBAMA has taken in more PROFIT in two years than in his previous set of years under BUSH. WYNNs redistribution of wealth plan includes using non documented workers to clean his rooms and cook the food.

    Wynn is hardly the person to speak about the tribulations of business when he is making millions per month on the backs of illegals.

    Wynn wanted his moment in the spotlight, and he got it, now the republicans try to run with it. Look at his earnings for the last two years, he isnt struggling like the rest of america. Wynn, like other billionaires, have the means to employ this countries peoples, yet, will hold the country hostage until legislation that favors them (tax cuts) are enacted and as a tool, they dont hire or expand. This practice hurts america and yet you support it.

    Wynn by no means is the squeaky clean businessman.

    The Wynn organization provides lots of jobs, medical coverage for his employees and knows how to create jobs. He's a Democrat and I admire him for speaking out on the 'snake oil saleaman' that his party sold him on. There should be a lemon law for presidents. I don't think many people who voted for Obama are getting what they were promised in his campaign. Steve Wynn is disappointed . I don't blame him.

    Anyone who has ever seen a movie or read a book about Vegas already knows that the city was built by gangs & mobsters & mafia and whatever else they are called.

    It's no surprise. Even the mayor Oscar Goodman represented clients like Meyer Lansky, Nicky Scarfo & Anthony Spilotro (Joe Pesci in Casino).

    Here is the CC excerpt exactly as stated:

    William Lerner - Deutsche Bank Securities

    Steve, just 2 development questions for you. One in Macau, one in Vegas. Does it -- maybe you're already contemplating this formally, but does it make sense to build residential or villas in Macau, #1? And then #2, in Vegas, especially as I hear Marilyn talk about, a month like October for example, that there's not an inch of meeting square footage left in Las Vegas and as we think about limited or no supply over the next several years, being added back to Las Vegas, does it not make sense to expand your meeting square footage? I know you can do it east of country club or in that area?

    Stephen Wynn

    Well, here's our problem. There are a host of opportunities for expansion in Las Vegas, a host of opportunities to create tens of thousands of jobs in Las Vegas. I know that I could do 10,000 more myself and according to the Chamber of Commerce and the Visitors Convention Bureau, if we hired 10,000 employees, it would create another 20,000 additional jobs for a grand total of 30,000. I believe in Las Vegas. I think its best days are ahead of it. But I'm afraid to do anything in the current political environment in the United States. You watch television and see what's going on, on this debt ceiling issue. And what I consider to be a total lack of leadership from the President and nothing's going to get fixed until the President himself steps up and wrangles both parties in Congress. But everybody is so political, so focused on holding their job for the next year that the discussion in Washington is nauseating. And I'm saying it bluntly, that this administration is the greatest wet blanket to business, and progress and job creation in my lifetime. And I can prove it and I could spend the next 3 hours giving you examples of all of us in this market place that are frightened to death about all the new regulations, our healthcare costs escalate, regulations coming from left and right. A President that seems -- that keeps using that word redistribution. Well, my customers and the companies that provide the vitality for the hospitality and restaurant industry, in the United States of America, they are frightened of this administration. And it makes you slow down and not invest your money. Everybody complains about how much money is on the side in America. You bet. And until we change the tempo and the conversation from Washington, it's not going to change. And those of us who have business opportunities and the capital to do it are going to sit in fear of the President. And a lot of people don't want to say that. They'll say, "Oh God, don't be attacking Obama." Well, this is Obama's deal, and it's Obama that's responsible for this fear in America. The guy keeps making speeches about redistribution, and maybe we ought to do something to businesses that don't invest or holding too much money. We haven't heard that kind of talk except from pure socialists. Everybody's afraid of the government, and there's no need soft peddling it, it's the truth. It is the truth. And that's true of Democratic businessmen and Republican businessmen, and I am a Democratic businessman and I support Harry Reid. I support Democrats and Republicans. And I'm telling you that the business community in this country is frightened to death of the weird political philosophy of the President of the United States. And until he's gone, everybody's going to be sitting on their thumbs.

    Well said, Steve Wynn.

    Sorta reminds me of Charlie Munger's frankness on Obama's Cap-and-Tax nonsense when he was first elected. For those who may not know--Charles Munger is business partner of Warren Buffet, you know--Buffet who was (and still is) an advisor to Obama

    To quote Mr Munger--during a CNBC interviewr:

    "I think it would be monstrously stupid to do it right now.

    It would be a huge shock to the economy and it wouldn't accomplish very much given the fact that the vast majority of the CO2 is coming from a place like China.

    And so I think it would be almost demented if we rushed into cap-and-trade right now, in the middle of this economic crisis."

    Feds can't make up minds on mercury bulbs
    Ban outdoor lights while mandating use indoors

    In what critics call a classic case of the government working at cross purposes, Washington is forcing residents across the country to install mercury lighting inside their homes while phasing out mercury lighting outside homes to protect the environment.

    I have been stockpiling 60 watt bulbs and my spotlights for the canned lighting for a long time and have enough to last me the rest of my life. I'm good.

    If the Barack Light Bulb Police come, I'm not letting them in.

    How long will we have to wait until someone uses those new mercury filled bulbs as a weapon in a crime ?

    Here's on aspect that bhos is good for starting a new business.
    Sure to be a hot seller this X-MAS.

    Spread the Wealth Around: New Board Game Highlights Many Failures of Obama Administration

    A small business owner and self-described “recovering politico,” Philip Guthrie couldn’t resist the urge to poke fun at the Obama Administration. That’s why the 37-year-old developed SPREAD THE WEALTH AROUND, a board game that “exists to train you bitter clingers to practice the art of class warfare, dodge death panels, cheat on your taxes and do your small part to increase our national debt.”
    Choose membership in one of four organizations: Public Service, ObamaCare, Big Labor or Wall Street. From your perch atop the ruling class, you’ll bankrupt other players, drag them before show trials, carve them up in unnecessary surgery or just get one of your big labor goons to wack ‘em in Rocko Roulette.
    Rather than accumulate wealth in Spread the Wealth Around, you’ll rack up mountains of debt – just like Obama’s America. Scam dead people and collect their Social Security in Public Office. Unplug granny and play the lawsuit lottery in ObamaCare. Gamble and go burnin’ and lootin’ with Big Labor. Cut in line for your Wall Street bailout – it’s all for the children.

    Spread the Wealth Around is the perfect gift to cure that troglodyte Republican friend or conservative relation. No need for sensitivity training or coaching on tax and spend Obamanomics. Put away those teacher’s union pamphlets and Mao’s little red book. Play the political game that’s making the world safe for socialism!

    Do you believe everything you see in the mainstream media, or just feel like you missed out on Cash for Clunkers and ACORN brothels? Do you want to take other people’s money for the nanny state and social justice? You’ll play this political game like any pro in Washington.
