Las Vegas the ninth Hawaiian island. This island is the only one that we don't make any money for our state coffers. Do you see where this is a problem especially when we are broke okole. How much money do we leave there? PLENTY is my estimate. Don't get me wrong I love LV because thats what I like to do. Ahhh the glitter and casinos. How come we don't have gambling here? Is it really because LV donates money into the coffers of our lawmakers? Is that why they will vote against it when it comes up for consideration. Hmmm I wish we could really find out who gets what in this political money fundraising mystery. You never hear anything about this because our politicians are just a bunch of sneaky under da table SOB's.

Perhaps that's why so many people from Hawaii feel at home there?

Las Vegas was built to make people feel more worldly about themselves...so I guess if you go to Vegas you feel more worldly in a pseudo-wordly kind of way which is absolutely great for someone visiting from and going back to paradise.

Hawaii is ticketed as a trip to paradise so that the people from hell can feel that they got some kind of reprieve before going back to hell.

(sigh) Such is the world.....Vegas, anyone?

...and make sure you buy round trip tickets!

...I guess this puts an entirely new slant on Aldous Huxley's "Heaven and Hell", but to most I am sure the trip was worth it.

I'm sorry I posted this btw.
