    I am NOT a fan of either Obama nor Obamaidiocies.
    But after reading this, I believe the mayor needs to understand the realities of what Federal funding is supposed to be spent on.

    Vegas is a hotspot for conferences - I've been there on several occasions to attend them. It would be one thing if taxpayer monies were being used for pleasure - that would apply to any city holding a taxpayer funded conference, but the fact that it's "Vegas" makes it cannon fodder for a completely baseless comment for the sake of pandering.
    Do you ever provide an opinion without slamming liberals?

    Vegas is gambling capital of the country hell not our tax money shouldn't be spend in Vegas. I do not give a **** if they have conference rooms or not,so do other cities across the country. The mayor should shut his trap.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    When most people think if Vegas do they really think of?





    Or do most people think of this when they think of Vegas?













    I think the reason why Vegas is a hotspot for conferences is the recreational activities after they leave the conference rooms.

    He did it again. Micromanaging the Nation.
    Feb. 2, 2010

    You can go here, don;t do this, room temperatures can't be that high, ugh... and you can't drive everywhere you want... inflate your tires, don;t listen to that radio announcer... and on and on rants Mommy Dearest.

    Perhaps Reid would like to correct his "Obama is bright" comment one more time.

    President Obama Again Criticizes Trips to Las Vegas


    The president's comments come nearly a year after he criticized companies that received federal money for taking corporate junkets to Las Vegas. "You can't go take that trip to Las Vegas or go down to the Super Bowl on taxpayers' dime," he said at the time. Local business leaders say Nevada tourism suffered last year in part because companies canceled trips to Las Vegas in the wake of the president's comments.

    His statement Tuesday drew sharp criticism from Nevada lawmakers. "The President needs to lay off Las Vegas and stop making it the poster child for where people shouldn't be spending their money," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat. "Las Vegas is suffering through one of the highest unemployment rates in the country, and we cannot afford for the President to bring us down any further," added Republican Senator John Ensign. "Nevada has one of the most distressed economies in the country, and the President has done little to focus on job creation over the past year. Discouraging people from coming to our state to make a political point adds insult to injury," said Republican Congressman Dean Heller.

    Re: Mayor: Obama should apologize for Vegas trips quip

    An easy solution to the whole problem.

    Government agencies should have conferences only in cities in which they are headquartered, or wherever it is cheapest to get the people together who need to meet. Generally, teleconferencing should be the preferred mode.

    Private companies can have conferences wherever they damn well please, and the government should not meddle in private business affairs, not by "lending money", "bailing out", or regulating to any degree outside the barest minimum to ensure public safety is not threatened.

    However, the Big Mouthed Messiah in DC is sure doing his best for the re-election of Hairy Reid, isn't he?
