I bet it will be on Jefferson Road. That is where everything else goes. So much for downtown Rochester. Even the Indians do not want to be there.

I still think the best location for many reasons would be in Gates. Kodak Elmgrove Location.
Anyplace but the city will work for us though.

There has been a rumor for years now that a casino will end up in the old Kodak education center on E River rd. The place has sat empty for years now, has plenty of parking, and is fairly isolate so traffic would not be an issue.

Seems to me that this place makes sense.

Oh, good. A business that preys on the poor, the unsophisticated, and the gambling addict.

Casino JOBS?? Sure ALL service industry jobs, half-time. Resumes?(Yeah "I was a blackjack dealer.") Not many jobs for that. Upward mobility jobs? NOOO. Maybe more police jobs to deal with the robbery, lawyers for divorce and bankruptcies. Look at Niagara Falls. See how the Seneca Casino did not revitalize downtown Niagara Falls. Jobs lost for outside restaurants and taverns. Go across to Canada. See how their North End is still a dump. Why is it that the New Jersey's Casinos have a hugh ghetto right on their borders? Humm? These things SUCK money out of a community, not give money.

I think the casino should be on the east side of the city so it's close to Perinton! And I can go there and play and gamble if I wanted to!

FBI report the most dangerous States for crime: Tennessee number one, Nevada number two; robberies, car thefts, burglaries. What a surprise! Monroe County would be great for a Casino because there's no crime here. NOT

Great. Open a service business that preys on the poor. It will be mobbed with people that can't afford to gamble. Crime will spike. We don't need a casino in Rochester.

Educated people with money know that the odds are stacked heavily against them. Poor people have never figured this out - and get fleeced everytime. Kind of like lottery tickets, which are some people's retirement plan. A casino will cause more problems than the offset entertainment value.

The Indians get rich, the poor get poorer.

No casino in Rochester. Terrible idea.

Ever notice the a gambler can always tell you what he has won, but can never remember what he has lost.

AGREE. And what types of people support Casinos? The problem gambler, about 2/3 of the take. Not Grandma Saedy or Uncle Elmer. The problem gambler is the real poor. How poor is that for us voters to enable addiction?

The Indians will clean out the people that most can't afford to gamble. The will do it with abandon, and not have one bit of guilt.

To attack the have nots, I would install video poker machines. According to experts, they provide the highest take to the house, returning the lowest amount of money. You can't win at video poker.

And why not clean out the Americans? We took advantage of them and their ancestors all these years. Now its their turn for a payback. A new understanding for the term: a scalping. lol

Those Indians will make short work of the weekly paychecks. They'll earn in an hour what if took the mark all week to earn. And then some when the max out their credit cards.

A broke intercity can't be a good thing. Crime will escalate. And the proceeds from these crimes will not feed destitute families, it will go back to the Indians, legally.

Case in point, the UofR administrator that embezzled $4 million, and told the court most of her share went to gambling (losses) in Niagara Falls. And the UofR can't get any of it back from the casino.

To get this thread back on track: If the Senacas open a casino in the Rochester area it will be in direct violation of the compact that our Governor made with the Indians this Summer. Racinos like FLC and Batavia Downs would go ahead and install table games. They have been chopping at the bit to do this anyway. A Rochester casino would definately hurt BDs as a large chunk of their business comes from Monroe County.
