WYNN: Government has never increased the standard of living of one single human being in civilization's history. For some reason that simple truth has evaded everybody. The only thing that creates an increased standard of living is giving someone a job, the demand for their labor -- whether it's you and I, Chris, or anybody else. The people that are paying the price for this juggernaut of federal spending are the middle class and the working class of America.
WYNN: And soaring rhetoric and great speeches with or without a teleprompter aren't going to change the truth, and the truth is: The biggest enemy, the biggest obstacle that working middle-class America has is government spending.
So the question must be, is he and idiot or does he think we are?
Here are some of the things that "Government" has done to increase the standard of living for Steve Wynn, Las Vegas and all of us.
1) Provided roads to drag people to Vegas.
2) Built the Hoover Dam to power Vegas
3) Filter and provide clean drinking water.
4) Provide subsidized water for irrigating the desert.
5) Stopped the dirty coal burning and above ground nuclear tests to improve the health of Vegas workers and visitors.
6) Provided schools
7) Provided Universities
8) Stopped Polio, Smallpox, dysentery, typhus of the population.
9) Built the damn Vegas Airport
10) Provided a gambling loophole in Nevada for the growth of an industry in what otherwise would be a punk ass desert (see Elko for a city in Nevada with no water or power).
11) Built flood control channels to stop desert flash flooding from washing parts of the city away.
I could go on, but why... He is a dip shit. Not because he is dumb - I don't think you can be in charge of Wynn Industries and be dumb, but because he thinks we are all clueless jackenapes. I think he now judges all Americans but tthe gamblers he sees for a short amout of time as suckers.
