    I just got back from las vegas. It was my sixth time there and I have always enjoyed it there. Say what you will because yes it represents decadence, extravagance, and hedonism to the extreme. But at the same time it is the city of the future with all the opportunities that it presents. I have to been other cities and I can honestly say that none has held my interest more than vegas. There is an energy here that is unmatched in most cities. There are those who say (I am sure thare are plenty)that Las vegas represents everything wrong with America. I just marvel at the fact that a virtual metropolis and arguably the number one tourist destination in this country was created in the middle of a desert.

    Vegas was awesome 10 years ago, and is still really great, but now mexicans are starting to take over demographically. The future of vegas is somewhere in between los angeles and new york. Enterprising whites will create industry and technology, mexicans will follow the whites around and swamp their cities.

    Cities like vegas and phoenix can only exist thanks to white technology and infrastructure. Without it, places like arizona, nevada, and new mexico remain hot empty deserts with no place for mexicans to go.

    Vegas is a city I could care less about and would never visit unless I had tickets to a major fight or UFC event there. After San Francisco, I think it's maybe the most hedonistic and decadent city that we have. It's just not my thing.

    That's because whites thrive on cheap, unskilled labor.

    My wife is going to Vegas on a business trip this fall and I'm going along. I have been to LV twice before but that was 25 years ago and the whole city has been rebuilt since then. Looking forward to it.

    By the way, as bad a city as San Francisco is, it is still one of my favorite places to visit. God help me but it is a beautiful place with a facinating history.Edited by: Bronk

    There's nothing wrong with San Francisco or Las Vegas as I have personally been to both cities. Las Vegas is great in that you can walk down the street with a beer and buy a bowl at the head shop kiosk. lol. Though seriously I remember when my plane first was coming into the city at night and how beautiful the strip looked from the plane. I had the jitters in me and felt like a little kid the night before Christmas. God what a city! Also San Fran is a great place as well. They preach recycling and unlike other cities actually back their word. My biggest compliant with SF, and all of Cali for that matter, is how expensive everything was there. San Fran is a beautiful city with a great skyline and friendly people.

    I've only caught a connecting flight through Vegas (coming back on a business trip), and never left the airport. With four kids, I'm pretty frugal and not a gambler, so I see no "Loss Wages" in my future![​IMG]

    Without the build up Vegas would be what it was a cow town or back during Mexican days an oasis in the desert for a few thousand aboriginals. Vegas will have huge problems in the future with water supply problems. The city sickens me and I make part of my living from gambling.... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Edited by: white is right

    But the fact that vegas is maybe the number one tourist destination is a testament to white technology and infrastructure as nevada stated. Even though the entire theme is gambling, the potential to create something new and fascinating is always there in vegas. I have been to san francisco (beautiful city), los angeles (a sh*thole), chicago (overrated) but to me the excitement is not the same as I feel in vegas. That's just me. The food is always great and the women are super hot!!!!

    Vegas was never a cow town or an oasis for american indians. There was not a single human living there until white men came through the area building a railroad across the US. The city did not exist until 1905.

    There is no water in a desert, the city could not expand past a few thousand people until white men built the Hoover dam in 1935.

    White men built Las Vegas completely from scratch. This happened less than 100 years ago. It is a totally white fabrication. There would not be a single mexican, filipinio, hawaiian, or black person there without white technology.

    Mexicans are parasites in desert cities like Vegas and Phoenix. They were not there before, and would not be there now without whites. They jump the border and move along white highways in white cars to white cities with white air conditioning. Mexicans have no idea how to create water, food, roads, electricity, or jobs for a city in the desert. The desert was empty when the US took it in the treaty of Guadaloupe-Hidalgo.

    You think Mexicans built the research labs in New Mexico?

    Just another reason John McCain is a huge douche. A major supporter of La Raza who went out of his want to go after amnesty because he wants mestizos to overrun us.Edited by: nevada

    Not to burst your bubble but here is the history of Vegas....Las Vegas (English: "The Meadows") was named by Spaniards in the Antonio Armijo party, who used the water in the area while heading north and west along the Old Spanish Trail from Texas. In the 1800s, areas of the Las Vegas Valley contained artesian wells that supported extensive green areas or meadows (vegas in Spanish), hence the name Las Vegas.


    John C. Frémont traveled into the Las Vegas Valley on May 3, 1844, while it was still part of Mexico. He was a leader of a group of scientists, scouts and observers for the United States Army Corps of Engineers. On May 10, 1855, following annexation by the United States, Brigham Young assigned 30 missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints led by William Bringhurst to the area to convert the Paiute Indian population to Mormonism. A fort was built near the current downtown area, serving as a stopover for travelers along the "Mormon Corridor" between Salt Lake and the briefly thriving colony of "saints" at San Bernardino, California. Las Vegas was established as a railroad town on May 15, 1905, when 110 acres (44.5 ha) owned by Montana Senator William A. Clark's San Pedro, Los Angeles and Salt Lake Railroad, was auctioned off in what is now downtown Las Vegas. Las Vegas was part of Lincoln County until 1909 when it became part of the newly established Clark County. The St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church near 4th and Bridger in downtown was founded in 1910.[3]Las Vegas became an incorporated city on March 16, 1911.... Yes the area was obviously built up by whites, Spaniards and Anglo-Saxons but they had a small viable aboriginal population. Edited by: white is right

    Oh well. There were a whopping 300 people in the area before the railroad. That's exactly the same as having a modern 2 million person city.

    The mexicans might as well be handed control of it after all.

    I think your version of Mexican is different than mine. Nobody looking like George Lopez built up Mexico or what is now the South West of the US. They were Spaniards, French nationals, Germans and other catholics. White Mexicans are of these stocks. Vincente Fox is descendant of these people and so is Linda Rondestadt.

    Is this another case of"What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas".... [​IMG] LAS VEGAS -- Oakland Raiders wide receiver Javon Walker could be released from the hospital Tuesday, a day after he was beaten, robbed and left unconscious on a Las Vegas street after a night of partying, police said.

    A large amount of cash and some jewelry were taken from Walker, who suffered "significant injuries," police said.

    Police Lt. Clinton Nichols said detectives are retracing Walker's activities in the hours before he was found injured Monday morning on a street off the Las Vegas Strip.

    "That's one of the first things we do, backtrack what he did and where he stayed," Nichols said, adding that the investigation was still in the early stages. "We knew there was a large amount of cash taken, and some jewelry."


    If you compare the Javon Walker story to that of late former Denver teammate Darrent Williams, there are some sad similarities, Bill Williamson writes. Hashmarks

    According to reports published Tuesday in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Walker visited a nightclub, Tryst, at the Wynn Las Vegas resort on Saturday night.

    Walker spent Sunday night at another club, Body English at the Hard Rock hotel-casino, before leaving about 3:30 a.m. Monday, according to casino spokeswoman Dorian Cantrell.

    Cantrell said there were no reports of a disturbance at the club.

    Nichols said he believed Walker would be released after a 24-hour stay at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center. Hospital spokesman Dan Davidson said he had no patient listed under Walker's name.

    A Raiders spokesman said the team was in the process of gathering information and had no further comment.

    On Monday, police officer Bill Cassell said in a statement that Walker was taken to a hospital with "significant injuries" and was in fair condition at the hospital.

    Walker, 29, signed a six-year, $55 million deal with the Raiders after being released by the Denver Broncos in February.

    Walker injured his right knee for the second time in his career last season and was limited to eight games and 26 catches in 2007.

    Walker was a first-round draft pick by the Green Bay Packers in 2001 and had a breakout season in 2004 with 89 catches for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns.

    He tore a ligament in his right knee the next season and played only one game.

    He was traded to Denver in 2006 and bounced back with 69 catches for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns.

    The non-whites that invariably overrun any and all nice American cities wouldn't be 1/10th as annoying if they developed the ability and desire to say "thank you", instead of walking around with this reckless sense of jealous superiority and entitlement.

    Vegas is vulgar, and indicative of the decay of white values. Hookers and
    gambling, hurrah.

    Read a book.

    Go sailing.

    Play sports.

    Go to a museum.

    Do something with your kids.

    Or, consume, consume, consume!

    Not a big Vegas fan mind you, but keep in mind when speaking of White values that for 90% of the 10,000 years or so we have record of White societies, neither prostitution nor gambling (nor drinking, nor eating the funny mushrooms if you can find them...) have been illegal. The thing that makes many traditional moral practices in White society somewhat less stupid (and murderous!) than that of say, towel-headed camel drivers, is that it is based more on reasonable assesment of practical consequences, human needs, and human nature than some divinely-issued absolutes.

    Nevada demonstrates how unimportant unenforceable laws are in determining what a society is like, and how important racial makeup is.

    I can see why some of you don't like Vegas but for some its just a city in the middle of a desert where one can get away from boring jobs and a hectic family life to have a few fun days. I myself plan on returning for sure one day. I had a fun time and enjoyed myself. What else is there to say. Sure prostitution is legal in the counties next door but hey it is the world's oldest "profession". lol. I have no problem with protitution and in fact would like our country to adapt a policy similar to the Netherlands where it is regulated. Also just being able to drink my alcoholic beverage on the sidewalks is just AWESOME!! Oh and the head shop kiosks are a plus too. [​IMG]

    Maybe it's just me, but giving money to Steve Wynn (Weinberg) in exchange for 'thrills' seems a lousy deal.

    http://www.agrm.org/news/gambling.html

    But hey, homelessness can be thrilling too.

    http://www.gamblingwatch.ca/gambling-addiction-statistics.ht ml

    4 to 6% of regular gamblers will become addicted. Pawn shops, prison terms for embezzlement, divorce, loss of custody, suicide, resorting to prostitution, homeless shelters. Fun times. Nay, thrilling times.

    http://www.reviewjournal.com/lvrj_home/2006/Jun-18-Sun-2006/ news/8012595.html

    But let no one say Las Vegas, the Las Vegas of neighborhoods beyond the neon, isn't a healthy community.

    I like John Train's term, '...the inane hordes who want to lose their money in Las Vegas...'

    Gambling isn't risk. Farming is risk, studying for the CPA or EA exam is risk, joining the military is risk. But gambling is saying, 'Take my money, take my self-respect, laugh at me, abuse me.'

    There is nothing good, or even benign, about gambling. And what is especially sinister is Las Vegas promoted as a family destination. Start 'em early.

    Well I believe in "live and let live". So if some dumba$$ wants to throw all their money away, then so be it. I could honestly care less. Also who's to say what is sinful and what is not sinful. I for instance believe that consuming alcohol is worst than smoking a joint. To me gambling is one's own personal prerogative. However, I do not think that gambling should be encouraged but hey if an adult wants to partake then let them be. So what if a small percentage of people become hooked. Are you saying that gambling should be banned? Using that logic alcohol and tobacco are "sinful" as well and should be banned because hey after all some users will become addicts. This leads me too.....

    I'm sick and tired of these adult babysitters you got out there and they come from the left and right side of the political spectrum. These people who want to tell you to stop smoking, don't gamble, and wear your seatbelt. I'm sick and tired of the government telling me what I can and cannot put in MY BODY. Whatever happened to personal self responsibility? You know watching out for yourself and being able to make an adult decision. Sometimes the decisions lead to bad problems and sometimes they lead to the funnest nights of your life. Listen all throughout time you will have the small portion of society that gets hooked on a particular vice of choice and it ruins them. IT CANT BE SOLVED. The best we can hope to do is curb the problem. Also curbing the problem isn't by big daddy government coming and making whatever illegal or tougher laws because that just leads to overcrowded prisons and police being preoccupied with tedious b.s. when they can be out on the streets stopping real crime such as theft or rape instead of busting a Deadhead for a doobie . Societal problems should be curbed through education and teaching people moderation and restraint. Not limiting one's personal choices.

    There is nothing good, or even benign, about government having the power to reach into your life and tell you what to do.

    A century or more ago in this great country, if you had the money and were tall enough to reach over the counter, you could go into a general store and buy any firearm and ammunition imaginable (including full auto when they were invented), a jug of whisky, a jar of laudanum(Opium derivative), and to top it off, a case of dynamite. Yet the country didn't descend into chaos. Every town just about had places where you could gamble, and houses of ill-repute, that were mostly left strictly alone by the law. Yet things were fine, the sociological fabric of the time was better than now, most people lived out full lives. It was realized that those who did let their lives be destroyed by the drink, or the cards, or whoring, were in fact victims of their own poor choices and discipline and nothing else.

    Then we got the damned social reformers in this country.

    They wanted Whites to quit treating the Negros like rabid semi-retards who will rape and murder Whites if they think they can get away with it un-lynched. You see what happened.

    They wanted prostitution illegal in every great state in this country. With the result that prostitution never went away, but did become even uglier than it was before everywhere.

    They wanted to get "demon rum" out of peoples system. Do I even need to remind anybody what prohibition was like?

    They gradually decided more and more regulations needed to be piled upon pharmaceuticals. With two notable results. It has resulted in gangsterism on one hand and government encroachment into personal property rights on the other hand. And even legal, medicinal drugs have had so much regulatory crap piled upon them that getting even simple prescriptions in America can be an expensive nightmare, unlike in many other nations. Kid has an earache over the weekend? In half the nations of the world, you just go down to the pharmacy and get him some medicine. In America, you go to the ER, wait for hours in lobby with your kid in screaming pain, and pay multi-hundred dollar charge for some attending physician to write him a prescription for the same tough.

    And of course, the social reformers had to give women the vote, and pretend like women are men's equal when it comes to picking out sound policy. No more than they are men's equal in strength and endurance. Without the vote for women, so much nanny-state crap, like gun control, would never have stood a snow ball's chance in hell.

    Now, we have a system that treats the whole population like children, with the result that alot of people don't grow up. The thing about children, they may act abit bratty sometimes, but ultimately, they'll more or less do what Mommy-state, Daddy-Feds, or Big Brother tells them to do.

    An grown man (and many were grown men at 16 back in the day) has live for himself, done for himself, made his own choices and lived with them. He don't cotton to some official telling him how to run his business. Now we have people with balding heads and grey hair who think it is perfectly reasonable for the government to decide for them whether or not they are going to wear a seatbelt or a helmet, and who are callow enough to think regulations of this kind are anything other than a revenue gathering scheme. We've let the women raise the boys to the point they are half-women-(raising them on such BS aphorisms as "It takes more guts to walk away than to fight". After you've slugged it out a few times, fighting for your dignitiy or your rights, you realize how incredibly non-sensical that phrase is.) All this training of the populace has allowed the un-trainable Black to gain a tremendous psychological advantage over Whites in the evolutionarily inevitiable and barely-concealed race war going on right now.
