What Happens In Vegas

As the tone deafness competes with the unabashed sense of entitlement, I keep remembering a line from the film Midnight Express: "The bad machine doesn't know that he's a bad machine."

That trip would be appalling in good times. They're charging poor suckers 20+% on their credit cards to finance Vegas junkets for their employees. I hope people remember this when the revolution starts.

Isn't Wells Fargo simply "stimulating" the economy?

What is the difference?

I suppose this is good, but in the back of my mind, I wonder why they really canceled. Because, I don't think they get it yet.

Like the first comment, why isn't the rate financial institutions charge customer discussed? And with all the financial disasters going on, what's the state of all those Payday/Title loan places? It is kind of depressing to see 1 or 3 on every block in a town. They appear to be the new StarBucks (referring to their propensity to locate stores in the same area).

I just got back from LAS VEGAS and I have never seen it so BAD ... Just flying over there are huge subdivisions with model homes and the rest is completely abandoned. Even buildings downtown are abandoned ... Retail strip centers around town are half empty! Both of my long time friends who have been in LAS VEGAS for over 30 years are looking to move out!
