Some people complain about Trump but he seems like a nice guy. But Rosie O'Donnell is mean. Rosie O'Donnell would make a good candidate for the NYPD.... Narcissistic Youth Personality Disorder.... Look up that term in the dictionary and it shows her face. Trump seems demented at times, but at least he seems somewhat nice.

gaming has RUINED the Mississippi Gulf Coast. God's 'wars & rumors of wars' do NOT mean all guns. TOO many people become addicted to gaming as they do alcohol. They lose homes, jobs, familes are torn apart. Is the entire USA going to become a gaming mecca? I hope alot of u 'get right for God or you will be left when he comes back. Its ALL in the BIBLE.

Good 4 G Harrison, We dont NEED Donald Trump & his attitude on the coast. He puts a greedy attitude on a devistated area. Money IS the root of all evil. WE are BETTER than his greedy attitude..

Too bad Trump didn't make this decision BEFORE he razed down all those acres of natural forest and filled in wetlands. We lost about 80% of our trees in Katrina and he pulled down 400 acres worth of trees, only to back off?
What used to be one of the few nice wooded areas to pass on the interstate is now just an ugly, blighted bulldozed eyesore.
Will he at least replant the trees? And return the wetlands back to their natural state so the animals can have a place to live?
Enjoy your big bucks now, Donny Boy. You won't be able to take it with you where you're going!

PS-my previous post is showing my home as being in Kentucky.
I actually live in Bay St. Louis, MS, about 10 miles from Diamondhead, Mississippi. We were here during the storm, and got to swim INSIDE our own home (located in a FEMA designated "No Flood Zone") during it. Talk about fun! No, not really...
So I see this blighted landscape he left behind every time I have to travel I-10 to go to the towns East of here.
That's ok, Mr. Big Shot, we'll get along fine without you and any more casino's. Your greedy attempts to gobble up private and public land is not welcome here! GO AWAY AND STAY AWAY!

Trump DOES NOT own the ground. A local corporation owns it and if they had the money, they could build the casino WITHOUT Trump.

If you want to trash someone, trash your own! And before ranting like school children know your FACTS.

The Bible does not say that money is the root of all evil. It says the LOVE of money is the root of all evil.

Gossip is mean spirited, undocumented, and ill mannered.

Debate is thoughtful, factual and usually polite.

When opening your mouth, make sure your dirty foot is not aimed at filling the void.

The coast will never come back if ill words fill the air and good deeds go undone.

Put away your nastiness and pick up a chore list and do it.

To Diamondhead Resident from Do Not Like The Donald:
You sound like one of those unhappy transplanted Yankee living in Diamondhead, smacking those of us who are sick of casino's, greed, shady scamming "contractors", thieving bums and illegals, and carpetbaggers trying to rob us when we are down and out.
FYI, Diamondhead Resident, I do consider myself an educated person and I do research what I am talking about before I speak of it.
Oh, and my feet aren't dirty. Sometimes I even put on some shoes!
So, let me get this straight: When you speak, it's "Debate is thoughtful, factual and usually polite". But when someone disagrees with you, it's "Gossip is mean spirited, undocumented, and ill mannered".(Your words!)
We know Diamondhead Corporation owns the land, but wasn't the whole deal with raping that piece of property based on Trump's promise to build a casino there? And the greed and bickering amongst Diamondhead Corporation/Homeowner's Association is very well-known around here. You can't even run your own community without scandals and backstabbing, so don't slam me for making an astute observation.
Why don't YOU tell the truth for once?????
Pick up a chore list and do it???? Mr. or Ma'am, whoever you are, I have a 4'x4' cardboard list posted on the wall and check off at least 3 items a day! And I also volunteer 3-4 times a week, help at church, and work on my own home-all while being 100% disabled.
So, stick your own dirty foot in your own mouth and see how THAT tastes, ok?
I've got a life to rebuild and I don't need another casino built here to help me do it, either.
Thanks to the loving, kind, considerate VOLUNTEERS-not casino's- we are all going to make it back on our feet and be able to pay if forward in the near future.

I'm not a Yankee and you have proven my point, thanks.
You go Louisville Ky

To Diamondhead Resident from Do Not Like The Donald:

You go Louisville! I have family living in the Gulfport area (who dislike casinos)that I visit every year. I really enjoy my visit, and its heart breaking to see the devastation still going on there.
Its nice to know they have people like you who really! care about Mississippi and getting things back in order. The Casinos do not! care about the residence but only care about how much revenue they loose each day by being shut down. I pray things go well for those who lost family and homes.
I think the person from Diamond head estates hates the idea that their property de-valued! when Trump pulled out.
PS. I cant stand! Trump and his arrogant self...

WOW! You are an idiot! Donald Trump had nothing to do with clearing the land in your county. You are such and idiot. Get the facts before you make more idiotic statements.

To "Diamondhead Resident" and "equal in bls":
Ok so you're not a Yankee. But I think you are one of the people who was expecting big bucks from this fiasco and are probably a big part of the ongoing disputes inside Diamondhead Homeowner Assoc. And likely already have your cut in the bank. Am I wrong? Tell me so, but politely, please. The nearest I came to insulting you was to suggest you were a Yankee and that you should put your own dirty foot in your mouth as you suggested I do.
What point have I proven? That I can match you word for word?

To "equal in bls"-Thanks for the compliment! How rude.
How many times can you use the word "idiot" in one paragraph? Can't think of any more adjectives?
How sweet....and dumb!
My info comes from the local Coastal Newspapers, the paper this article ran in, and several online news sites.
Where does yours come from? "Paragraph Writing for Idiots"?
Peace Out, Y'all!

Trump never promised. It was a Memorandum of Understanding - a period of time where all parties can do due diligence without a third party coming in before a deal can be finalized. That was in the paper. And I never saw or heard where he was trying to "take" public land.

Trump, Yankees, and Diamondhead residents seem to rile you up.

Some of us in Diamondhead are there because our homes in the Bay were Katrina'd. Are you angry because we had the means to have alternate housing. My chore list is still long from being finished. And if after all the tears, mud, sweat, work and money, I can sell my house for more than before Katrina - then damn it, I deserve it.

Anger management classes are available locally.

When did this morph from a discussion about Trump's dirty dealings and the reckless razing of a huge tract of land to me being jealous because you could afford to move to Diamondhead? How do you know if I can or can't afford to do it, too?
(BTW, I wouldn't move there if you GAVE me a house.)
I'm a 7th generation Bay St. Louis resident, so I'll just stay put right here and continue working on our home.
And we are doing just fine with our rebuild, thank you. Slowly, and with the blessed help of many volunteers, but making progress daily.
Sounds like you are the one who needs anger management, not me. We are dealing with the post- Katrina mess and rebuilding very well. Every day is a new day and every day one more thing is worked on, improved, or finished, so we consider all this a step forward and don't wallow in the past and what we lost.
You are right about a few things: Trump, RUDE Yankees, and SNOBBISH Diamondhead residents do irritate me. Not rile me up, though. Life's too short.
Before you rant at me any further, please take a second (or two, depending on how slow a reader you are) to review the posts in their full context.
Perhaps we can get back on point?
Bye-Bye

Easy,

Trees did not beong to Trump.
Taxpaying locals cut them down.
Casinos do not force you into them.
Prejudice comes in all sizes, shapes and locations.

And you seem more interested in telling us about how great and entrenched you are rather than staying on point.

To Diamondhead Resident:

"And you seem more interested in telling us about how great and entrenched you are rather than staying on point."
What does that mean, exactly?
You insinuate that I am uneducated and jealous of you living in Diamondhead, then tell ME to stay on point? And to imply I am prejudiced? Against whom or what? Where does your mind wander off to when you read these posts??? I do take great offense at that remark.
Yes, I am entrenched in BSL. That's what strong people do. They go back in, roll up their sleeves, and get to work, not run off somewhere else to live because they can't tolerate the conditions. I hope in 5 years we'll be back to the lovely Gulf Side community we once were. We're doing our part, every single day by working on our own home, those of friends and strangers, volunteering, and even picking up trash along the street.
I am NOT getting into a pissing contest with you.
If you want to talk facts and truth, I will. But so far, all you've done is try to impress everyone reading this on how educated and important you think you are and try to belittle me.
BTW, I found out today from a County Supervisor that the work (razing and raping of 400 acres of surviving forest and wetlands) was halted because it was done without a permit issued and fines are being levied.
Straight from the horse's mouth. So I guess my info would be factual here. Let me know. I'm sure you will!
