Obama’s Statement on Sin City
I have lived in Sin City for more than 15 years. Sin City is a place painted with glamours, excitements, extraordinary behaviors of people (whether acceptable or unacceptable behaviors), etc. I am not a democrat myself, and I am not a republican either. However, I support President Obama’s statement, in which he stated, “You can’t get corporate jets, you can’t go take a trip to Las Vegas or go down to the Super Bowl on the taxpayer’s dime.” The statement consists of a great level of ethics.
I presume that the majority of us should be educated in a way which morales and ethics are emphasized. Las Vegas is known as a place for entertainment, and entertainment is paid by and should be paid by disposable income. How is it justifiable for Person A to have great fun on Person B’s expense (sometimes this may not even work in a marriage)?
Oscar Goodman, the Mayor of Las Vegas disagrees, and believes the city is owed an apology:
What’s a better place, as I say, than for them to come here? And to change their mind and to go someplace else and to cancel and at the suggestion of the president of the United States, that’s outrageous. That’s outrageous, and he owes us an apology. He owes us a retraction.
Is the bailout fund considered to be disposable income by the Las Vegas mayor, Mr. Goodman? Does the Las Vegas mayor, Mr. Goodman, think that it is quite alright for bailout fund holders to fly to Las Vegas with the bailout money? Does the Las Vegas mayor, Mr. Goodman, think that it is absolutely ethical for tax payers to pay executives to engage in activities which may not be accepted by the general public? Does the Las Vegas mayor, Mr. Goodman, think that entertainment in Las Vegas be prioritized before necessities in life such as food, mortgages, insurances, etc? The sales volumes in Las Vegas will definitely decrease in an abnormal pattern regardless if the word, Las Vegas, was present or absent in President Obama’s statement. I suggest to certain people that they should go ahead and accept the reality. Additionally, focus on the current situation, rather than being particular in one comment.
