What a rant! Typical liberal elite to bring up an IQ argument. Oh wait...who has the sub 90 IQ and can't spell "knew" correctly? Snowflake.

You are apparently are either clueless or part of this corrupt system.

Itís all of them, republicans, democrats they are all opportunists. They stand by nothing.
#1 Washington D.C is probably the top of the list.
#2 Hollywood
#3 govt agencies
#4 institutions
#5 Catholic Churches

Look at what is going on with USA gymnastics connecting with MSU.
The problem is where ever their is major money it corrupts. It creates predators and leaders look away at situations instead of tackling them..
Penn state
Michigan state
Iím sure itís all of them.



Trump is definitely not perfect but more and more of the truth is starting to come to realization.

Obama, Clinton, bush worse leaders in history.
No accountability and they swindle the working class labor value through bailouts and low interest rates only to continue to support the corruption by the corporations and the reality is what is going on.

Never bailout failure that roots out the corrupt in society

Re: Wynn Everett Casino | Everett

I am so reluctant to weigh in on this, especially as it has nothing to do with AB. Unfortunately, we seem to live in a time when people love their hate more than they love their country. Until we can start talking to each other, instead of pointing fingers and yelling at each other, we are doomed to continue living this mess.

Time to move this debate to a Caligula Thread.

So wait, are you saying I'm wrong? You completely ignored the topic and instead came up with a really unique and hurtful "snowflake" ad hominem attack. Even rifle managed to respond the actual content of the post.

^ That image is from a 2009 study. It's almost a decade out of date.

The Somerville Journal tweeted that image only because somebody posted it in the Facebook event for the meeting mentioned in the Tweet.

Ahh ok, thought it was weird how it connected to the Costco parking lot and not Wynn.

I just hate when you hear about say Al Franken and conservatives say that liberals are disgusting. Then you hear about Wynn and liberals say that conservative white men are disgusting. Politics has nothing to do with this issue and I don't know why people brought it up.
I don't give a shit about your politics, but could please, please never use the word "irregardless" again?

Re: Wynn Everett Casino | Everett

I personally don't care what WYNN did in Vegas.

Finish the project and put serious pressure on local and state legislators to drastically improve the infrastructure so we don't end up in traffic GRIDLOCK.

I truly support massive upgrades to improve all Transportation methods in and around the casino and 93.

MBTA
Foot Bridges
off-ramps
Water Transportation

Whatever it takes now. INVEST IN TRANSPORTATION across the board.

Re: Wynn Everett Casino | Everett

Getting back to Mr. Wynn, the New York Times reports that authorities in Macau could be looking into the misconduct allegations. Wynn's casino in Macau is the cashcow writ large for the Wynn empire. Wynn owns 21 percent of the company, with the same percentage of voting rights. Wynn's quick resignation from chair of the GOP finance committee after the Wall Street Journal report suggests the accusations are not all smoke.

The company will ultimately have to continue on without him. The board will presumably demand a resignation when his staying on effectively becomes untenable.

Re: Wynn Everett Casino | Everett

Slightly off topic but I saw that the Mass Gaming Commission, after a no doubt in depth investigation, held up Wynn as a man of good character or some nonsense.

http://www.bostonherald.com/news/loc...good_character

I can see that interview now.

Commissioner: "Mr. Wynn, are you a man of good character?"

Wynn: "I can't lie to you commissioner....Yes I Am. Now here's some free comps for you and the rest of the board at my casinos."

Commissioner: "I'm satisfied".

Re: Wynn Everett Casino | Everett

Glad to see we're succeeding in making sure no corner of internet discussion is devoid of political grandstanding no matter how far removed from politics the topic is.

No, really guys, the other day I was thinking "Sure, I can't turn on the news without Trump, but is that really enough politicization? Maybe we can find a way to interject the culture war into my gardening forum?"
