Before there was Las Vegas, there was Havana, Cuba. Instead of a 5 hour jet flight from New York to Las Vegas, Gamblers flew to Cuba on slow flying prop aircraft like the DC4. A flight from New York to Havana in a prop job would take over 7 hours. Today, it now takes 3.5 hours in a Boeing 737. Havana is within 2.5 hours of flight time from Dallas. In fact, all across the South, and the Eastern seaboard, the flight times to Havana are short with little time zone change. Hence, air fares to Cuba will compete with air fares to Las Vegas and take less time. A jaunt from Disney-world to Cuba takes less than an hour.
When one lands in Cuba, one can expect everything to be cheap. From Hotels to hookers, Havana has it all. Unlike, Las Vegas that has beaches on Lake Meade miles and miles out of town, Havana has beaches right next to the downtown. A couple could have a night on the town and a cool evening stroll on the boardwalk. All within a few blocks of gorgeous old buildings and beautiful sandy beaches. A taxi ride in a 55 Chevy convertible would be a fraction of the cost of taxi ride in a Toyota Prius from McCarran. Instead of 115 degree heat, the breeze from the Atlantic would blow through open windows and comfort the senses.
Today, old gambling Casinos next to beautiful sandy beaches stand ready for renovation. The only thing keeping Havana from becoming a gambling destination is the Castro regime. They outlawed gambling in 1959. Soon Raul Castro will realize that legalized gambling would create a windfall for the Cuban communist government. Of course the Castro’s would use this revenue to purchase Russian made military equipment and continue to subjugate the Cuban people.
Should Havana Cuba become a gambling destination, expect Atlantic city to collapse and Las Vegas to take a huge vacation revenue hit. Instead of long flights to Honolulu, folks would opt for a short flight to Havana. Sadly, America’s stagnate wages due to Clinton/Bush/Obama fast track stupidity and a globalized economy fit the hand of the Cuba’s economies of scale like a Chines made glove at a dollar store.
All “the profit Obama” has to do is tell his minions to boycott Vegas and go to Havana, and they will do it. I mean, if Obama can tell his liberal air head army that marriage is between a man and a man, he can tell his unemployed Marxist minions to party in Havana. Moreover, Obama is really just to the right of Che Guevara, and exchanged Christmas cards with Hugo Chavez.
What happens in Havana, stays in Havana.
Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval has increased Nevada government spending by over a billion dollars. Should Havana legalize gambling, people will flock to the communist island for fun, gambling and decadence. Unlike Nevada hookers who want hundreds and hundreds of dollars, a Havana whore can be had for $50 bucks with hotel included. Food is cheap and delicious. Taxis are cheap. Drinking is cheap. Music is refreshing and the sex is dirty deeds done dirt cheap. Even the afterward Cigar is a tasty treat. Any loss in Nevada gaming revenue will blow a massive budget hole in Sandoval’s spending agenda.
Barack Hussein Obama is basically attacking Las Vegas tourism by serenading Cuban dictators. For every Cuban that gets a low wage job at a Cuban hotel, one job is lost on Fremont street. Obama has sided with Cuban employment over the prosperity of Nevada and hard working Hispanic families.
Rand Paul has also jumped on the Havana dictator band wagon, but expects Nevadans to give him a few delegates in 2016?
Hillary Havana Clinton is also lock step with Obama’s plan to wage war against Brian Sandoval and Nevada prosperity.
So, what is good for J Edgar Benghazi Hillary Havana Clinton will be bad for Las Vegas and probably Reno too. Especially when the Castro regime legalizes gambling and the Trump types start building huge casinos. Hillary thinks she owns the Hispanic voter.
Hangover 3 will be filmed in a Havana whore house next to an old Batista era gambling hall.
