    Bevin conceded defeat today . Lame Duck governor . Now lets see if we get our no toll bridge . Get ready for an increase in gasoline tax , sales tax and property tax to pay for the bridge into Cincinnati from Covington . I hope you democrats that will rarely use it enjoy helping to pay for it .

    Yep. No winning. Teachers and government contractors will continue to collect their welfare despite the state going broke. Thanks.

    If that happens then blame the Republican controlled House and Senate. Governor cant do it by himself.

  4. Yeah I was about to say he can’t do jack shat without the Kentucky legislature’s approval. Lame duck as somebody alluded to. Frankly, I’ve always been partial to lame duck executives at the state level. Keeps the stupidity to a minimum as nothing gets passed unless it’s absolutely vital.

    The gambling industry is doing back flips.

  6. If somebody want to gamble, be or pay a prostitute, drink, do drugs, act in or peddle pornography, or whatever else free people want to engage in it's none of my business. Zero, so long as nobody’s right are being violated.

    Beshear will be done in 4 years. Republicans will start pushing Daniel Cameron.
    Politics = Predictable
    Let’s go ahead and put up some yard signs now.

    Not when they get tax breaks and special treatment. Then it does affect me.
     
  9. Tax breaks? You mean a break from legalized theft? How on earth does that affect you?

    I don't gamble. Work to hard for my money. BUT THOUSANDS cross the River everyday to gamble. Why not legalize it here in the state? Keep the money here in the state. Create JOBS here in the state. Don't seem like a bad deal to me.

    Gambling is legalized theft?

    Didn’t know willingly playing games of chance, without being forced to, was considered theft. People have free will. No one is forcing them to play blackjack
     
  12. Taxes are legalized theft. Not sure how you comprehended otherwise but I’ll look it over.

    Well I’ll agree to that.

    I think it was how the posts were sequenced. Thought you were talking about gambling.

    Republicans, conservatives unelected a thief then. No more romney wannabe “conservatives” for Ky please. Bevin was a lame duck the minute he cut wages and raised taxes. A joke of a executive and honestly a thief if you really want to look at some of his cohorts
