This post is going to be all over the place, so buckle up. Last Friday was the the iHeart music festival, iheart is one of the several music apps that you can get that will allow you play live radio on your PDA, its free but cause its is they like to find a way to make money that add ‘premium’ content. So in order to get people to pay it put on a 3 day music festival with all the top acts. Green Day is one those rock acts that typicality inhabit the rock world. They play hard and party hard but that came to a end this weekend. Las Vegas is the worst place in the earth to be if you have any sort of addiction problems, your going to get into trouble. That is what happen Friday night:
” So Armstrong shouted, “Stand up, you lazy em-effers!” Repeatedly. He was having none of this sitting-down garbage. “Effing stand up! This is Las Vegas! This isn’t effing Reno”
Then the news came out that lead singer Billy Joe Armstrong was headed to rehab. while was not shocking cause that is rock n roll
Another year and CBS has another Vegas based TV as they have to try and find a show to replace CSI one of those shows that makes the city look much better and smarter than it’s actually is. The new Vegas show is called ‘VEGAS’ not to be confused the other Vega$ or Las Vegas. It based on the exploits of the father of Las Vegas law enforcement Ralph Lamb. He famous for among other things his numerous run ins with gangsters and ‘hands on treatment of criminals. He worked in the Department from the early 50s to the late 70s. he worked he way up the ranks from patrol officer to detective to Sheriff. He merged the Clark County and Las Vegas departments to create Las Vegas Metropolitan Police that exists today. He also created one of the lst nation’s SWAT units. His run as Sheriff ended after he took a $30,000 ‘gift’ form Binyion’s casino owner. The gift attracted a attention of the IRS whom charge him with fraud for failure to report and pay taxes on it. A friendly judge threw the case out citing lack of evidence. he was later voted out of office. It is interesting to note that the former CSI Warrick Brown‘s murder is loosely based on Lamb.
Not doubt about it, I have seen things in Ghetto Vegas that set black folks back 100 years. It’s almost like what is a good thing to do and bad thing to and black folks do the wrong thing.If got though the local Las Vegas new sources you see so many examples of bad choices we make that as person of color it makes you want to join the KKK. An example of this a college fair being held currently in Ghetto Vegas. The fact that they are focusing on traditional ‘Black’ colleges that were created when black weren’t allowed to traditional colleges is glossed over in the rush to preserve some kind of of fucked up ‘niggia’ heritage is amazing to me. It just seems to me if my child were good enough to get into college I would want to to the best school available. And constant use of that word by felons and criminals in the black community is an embarrassment to the entire community

It’s been another terrible week here in Ghetto Vegas. After multiple deaths soon to be defunct Las Vegas Sun posted this puff piece about all the cons you can find on the strip and shows how ineffective the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police is. The problem is off the strip is a virtual no mans land filled with con artists and violent criminals and culture that says whatever you can do to make money is fine just don’t get caught. A sign of this is number of sells jobs you find here witch the only way to make money is that you need to a a soulless lair. And people wonder why tourism is off
83. It not a large number until you realize it’s the number of people that killed in stupid and entirely preventable traffic accidents. Most of these were single car accidents with stupid drunk drunks at the wheel. Some were genius whom tried jaywalk across uncrossable 8 lane highways. But this should the all to action, but because this place is full of thoughtless, empty vessels it won’t be. The problem is there is no accountability here. This story is a perfect example of this. For the 3rd time this year a drunk driver drove into bus stop. This time 4 people died. The driver had been cited before and not punished.
“Bad driving, drunken driving, inattentive driving, texting while driving, cutting-off-others-out-of-anger driving I don’t know about you, but to me that sounds like a recipe for disaster. And you know what? This is just about the only city in the world that I know of where this sort of stuff is allowed to occur. And nobody seems to be doing anything about it.”
