I can't wait until this worthless hick-town dies off for good. Gettysburg disgusts me, I hate the town. I hope it gets swallowed by a giant sinkhole.

A casino would not have been affected by the government shutdown. Just sayin.

Nobody in his right mind would entrust a casino to these stupid bumbling hick morons in a Gettysburg. Maybe let the hillbillies mop floors or park cars.

It can't get much worse, what with Child Sex Abuse epidemic and the violent street gangs.

The locals fail to mention the issues with the local police department. Its run like a three ringed circus with Bozo the clown leading the show.

Right, next thing they will spend more money and try to persuade people to visit more than once a year.
Can you imagine? People visiting more than once a year! How many hot dogs can they eat? How many times do you have to visit the battlefields, museums, and etc before you have had enough? What is this world coming to?

what those who repeatedly visit fail to do is soak in just the rich history of the area. Its vistors who want to do something other than history related activities that have caused problems in the past. There had been issues with some locals to wanted a water park, or a casino. This caused many issues among locals, some who wanted to do the right thing and keep the area, "pure" and the others who wanted unfamily like entertainment.

I believe you are speaking of politicians or otherwise know as local leaders. These people see the population as cattle or milking cows. If you provide more activities, the visitors will stay longer, hence spend more money. All in all those so called leaders could give a rat's butt if little Johnny or Susie get any history education.

Nice try, you dizzy local hick.

Gettysburg: the Child Rape Capital of the United States.

You don't know what to do. Let's see if you can trash your sleazy two-bit town just to spite me.

I win, you lose. That won't ever change. Dumb hick.

there are no jackasses at the Land of Little Horses located in Gettysburg. Just wonderful mini horses to pet and play with.
