    Developer Steve Wynn, a self-described Democrat who has shown overt support for Harry Reid, describes the American entrepreneurial spirit under President Barack Obama:

    ďI believe in Las Vegas. I think its best days are ahead of it. But Iím afraid to do anything in the current political environment in the United States. You watch television and see whatís going on, on this debt ceiling issue. And what I consider to be a total lack of leadership from the President and nothingís 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 Iím 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 ó 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, itís 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 donít want to say that. Theyíll say, ďOh God, donít be attacking Obama.Ē Well, this is Obamaís deal, and itís Obama thatís responsible for this fear in America.



    The guy keeps making speeches about redistribution, and maybe we ought to do something to businesses that donít invest or holding too much money. We havenít heard that kind of talk except from pure socialists. Everybodyís afraid of the government, and thereís no need to soft peddling it, itís the truth. It is the truth. And thatís true of Democratic businessman and Republican businessman, and I am a Democratic businessman and I support Harry Reid. I support Democrats and Republicans. And Iím telling you that the business community in this company is frightened to death of the weird political philosophy of the President of the United States. And until heís gone, everybodyís going to be sitting on their thumbs.Ē
    Read the whole interview.

    Assuming that SEIU hasn't burned the place down by then.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    "The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is hard business. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." Rudyard Kipling - (1865-1936)

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

    You better bring money because it ain't cheap to stay there. Beautiful hotel though. I walked through their casino floor and they had, not behind ropes but on the floor, tables with $1,000 minimums. I saw Spam-a-Lot there.

    So basically, "We as businessmen intend to not hire anybody and thus keep the American economy hostage until a corporate friendly right winger enters the White House and gets rid of every kind of regulation."

    No he's saying "Whats the point of us spending billions to grow and create jobs, when we have a pResident who belittles us, attacks us, and says he wants to take away all our profits in the name of "Redistribution" leaving us with no return for taking the risk in the first place."
