And when your wife is with me she always wants to go gambling and get some drinks. She says you're a stiff...but only for about 30 seconds...

Thanks for sharing your views, though, Gomer. Go back to your television now. I'll keep your wife happy during our semi-monthly adventures.

They say they are not asking for tax breaks. That is because they are bringing their own. They will not be subject to property or sales taxes (they will charge and collect sales taxes and send up to the pueblo, you won't see any of it.) They are lying about the number of jobs and the pay. Net jobs will decrease because of the negative impact this casino will have on the horse racing industry and the thousands of jobs that industry provides in the state. Ask them what that average wage is when you back out the top 20-30 salaried casino personnel. It will be a lot less than the 28k they are claiming. I beleive the majority of Anthony citizens are non-English speaking. They are the ones who need the jobs. Guess what kind of jobs they will get...washing jobs and cleaning toilets and other jobs where they will not interface with the public. Open your eyes people. This whole thing is a scam that will pretty much benefit Gerry Peters and no one else.

Then maybe they should learn English if they want a higher paying job.
