You must not have read the same Balmoral Buddy posts as I have. IMHO he's always been supportive of Illinois racing. Like most of us he's concerned about our future.
Perhaps he never jumped on your Bonomo bandwagon and thus the hard-on for him.
Go back and read and comprehend the post you are referring to. He fears the tax on AIG bonuses, and subsequent lawsuits, may impact the Supreme Court's view of our bill. I do not get the sense he is rooting against horsemen. He brought up a point that is worthy of examination and discussion. Isn't that the purpose of a forum?
I think it is.
Thank you Mr. O & S...
The U. S. Constitution states "No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto law" may be passed.
To Mr. Kellytuc Greg, who may not understand this, Bill of Attainder means you cannot single out specific individuals for punishment (taxation).
And Ex Post Facto means after-the-fact. This bill would be passed after the bonuses were paid out.
What I was stating is that if this passes, it is similar to the tax on only a few riverboats and both may not be constitutional, which would hurt the horse industry yet again.
And whatever Mr Kellytuc thinks, I admire and know George very well. In fact I have been both to his place of business and his house (but probably not as many times as Mr. Kellytuc likes to point out that he has).
Once I merely listed a website where George had made a statement, and Mr. Kellytuc got all upset for some reason.
I have pointed out that the sport is heading downhill, and I long for the "good old days". If that is a crime, I am GUILTY as charged, and am willing to face a public stoning by Mr. Kellytuc.
I have tried to keep my postings to Harness Racing and not a pissing match between Nance, Burton, and a bunch of others, or name calling as Mr. Kellytuc likes to do. If the forum wants to continue name calling (Mr. Kellytuc called me a horses ass) and other senseless, childish acts, I will happy to leave. Just tell me when.
