Your recent article on the pending development of the old Bonnie Springs Ranch showed two aspects of just how far the United States has descended in such a short time.
The first is the petition to stop development that was supported by an ever-growing cadre of those who, when they thirst for something, are very eager for others to pay for it. Talk about your narcissisms.
The second is the pass-the-buck nonsense by Clark County Commissioner Justin Jones in crying poverty when asked why government didn’t step up to the plate. Well, there certainly was enough taxpayer money — $750 million of it — when the carpetbagging Raiders pulled their familiar Ponzi scheme on enthralled politicians, who couldn’t act quickly enough to throw those tax dollars to Mark Davis, et al. I feel certain that Bernie Madoff is impressed.
