"Added slots fail to halt slide in N.E. gambling" by Sean P. Murphy, Globe Staff | August 29, 2008
Soaring gas prices, job losses, and other components of New England's struggling economy have taken a bite out of slot machine revenues, resulting in the first significant, sustained dip in the region's gambling market since Connecticut opened its tribal casinos in the 1990s.
What will happen in the future is difficult to predict, gambling analysts said.
Sort of like a "gamble," huh?
The divergent trends - more slot machines, less demand from gamblers - could complicate the debate over whether to legalize casinos in Massachusetts.
Well, we obviously see the BG is in favor of casinos, otherwise, why would this information "complicate" the debate? It only complicates the debate if you are in favor of them coming here (I am not).
Of course, elite shits like the ones who write and produce this paper won't have to worry: they won't be going to the casino, and it won't be wrecking the quality of life in THEIR neighborhood!!!!
Anything to make POOR PEOPLE PAY TAX so THEY CAN GET GOVERNMENT HANDOUTS!!
Not fooled anymore, Boston Globe. Just insulted!!!!!!
Michael Pollock - managing director of the Spectrum Gaming Group, which recently completed a gambling study for the state - said the national downturn in the gambling industry is unprecedented. In the past, the industry managed to ride out business cycles, leading some to consider casinos to be recession-proof.
I'm just disgusted by the predatory nature of AmeriKan "bidness," folks.
Fuck them! I hope their whole industry dies!
But the current slide is different, Pollock said. Today's turbulence is closely tied to a bust in the housing market. High housing prices fueled the kind of confidence and even exuberance that fills casino floors and sometimes financed casino spending through home equity loans, he said.
How many people are GAMBLING their HOUSES away, readers?!
No, I don't mean loans from banks, either!!!
And yet, the Boston Globe here is IN FAVOR of the GAMBLERS!!!!
Please don't ever editorialize for the "greater good" anymore, Globe, because you guys are nothing but elite stink shit assholes!!!!
Sorry about the langauge today, readers, but it deserved! I am sick of the JEWSMEDIA PROPAGANDA and BULLSHIT!!!
I have FUCKING HAD IT, HAD IT, HAD IT, HAD IT, GOT IT?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The downturn has been particular unforgiving at Twin River, where investors say they are on the verge of bankruptcy and are trying to negotiate a deal with the state to reduce the amount they pay to the state in taxes.
The owners - including Len Wolman and Sol Kerzner, the developers of the proposed Mashpee Wampanoag casino in Middleborough - have received a credit downgrade and are negotiating with lenders.
And who is Sol Kerzner?
"Born outside Johannesburg in 1935 to Russian Jewish immigrants... by 26, he had entered the hotel business and in 1964 opened his first luxury hotel in South Africa using money invested by his accounting clients....
Part of the Russian/Jewish mafia is he?
In 1979, Kerzner created Sun City — the world’s first modern casino-resort, in the heart of the apartheid-era black homeland of Bophuthatswana. Technically not considered a part of South Africa, the location allowed Kerzner to operate a gambling casino and screen X-rated movies, activities that were illegal at the time in white-governed South Africa....
In mid-1987, Kerzner left South Africa under a cloud of suspicion and resettled in London. He was charged by a prosecutor in the black homeland of Transkei of bribing the governor of that state for casino rights. The governor served a nine-year prison sentence for accepting payment from Kerzner. Kerzner later admitted paying the money but claimed he was extorted. He spent years and millions of dollars in an eventually successful effort to get the charges dropped.
What is with the JEWISH GUYS and the BRIBES?
Kerzner later sold most of his interest in his South African hotel empire and began looking for new markets.... his taste for the fast life would be breathlessly chronicled in the world media for decades....
Len Wolman, chairman and chief executive of lodging concern Waterford Group, of Waterford, Conn., first brought the Mohegan Sun deal to Sol Kerzner.... Butch [Kerzner, Sol's son] also befriended members of the royal family of Dubai, who became large investors in the company as well as several Kerzner projects and awarded the Kerzners a key piece of land in Dubai for a second Atlantis resort scheduled for completion in late 2008....
Puts the LIE to all the Zionist's Muslim propaganda, doesn't it?
When $ is involved, it is a different story.
The deal had barely closed when Butch was killed, along with the two pilots and another passenger in the helicopter crash.... None of Kerzner’s other children are expected to figure into his succession plans....
Kerzner International will likely bid on Britain’s “super-casino” project announced last month for Manchester, England. Kerzner also says he’s interested in pursuing a project in Las Vegas."
Quite a story, 'eh?
