Balmoral Buddy, in his continuing jealousy of people still in the Illinois racing game, is trying to compare a bunch of idiots at AIG, who failed miserabley, to a bunch of profitable boats.   Every time Balmoral Buddy speaks it is to show how he cheers mightily for the destrucyion of the Illinois horse game.  Why dont you join the riverboats forum.  Or better yet, ***, where you can chum around with all of the other jealous idiots who have given up on Illinois racing and root for its demise.   
The AIG jackasses lost billions of dollars and almost ruined the entire financial system.  That is why they dont deserve bonuses or should be taxed.  The riverboats have been profitable having made money by the bushels.  Get it?Huh  Stop whining about Illinois racing.

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.

I think you called out the wrong guy. Just because someone tells the truth and says Chicago harness racing is dying, which it is, and that it may soon lose funding because of a new piece of legislation that could change the language of the situation in Illinois, which it may, doesn't mean they are against harness racing. It means they can make a prediction about what will happen due to the similarity of the two situations. All of those who think harness racing deserves boat and casino money and it will continue to flow in are just allowing themselves to be fooled. If the business can't stand on its own it will go by the wayside, whether we like it or not. The taxpayers in the states with casinos will tire of funding horse races instead of schools and streets. That's the way it is.

He compared the AIG mess to the Illinois Horesmen getting the 3% from the riverboats saying it was the same thing. One is a federal case the other is a state case that in itself makes it two different situations, to compare them saying we the horsemen are getting money like AIG is wrong!

If they don't like it then let the racetracks have slots!

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.

Many thanks Mr. Mo Doc,
I have been in the business a long time, and try to add things that others may not know (and in some cases, probably don't care):-)
I have a little knowledge in other things, and in this case, tried to point out a legal issue.
I have also learned a lot from this forum. RTP's, for example, long time knowledge and his willingness to share it with us, is much appreciated. I also did not know about the leases at Maywood Park.
If I have offened anyone, I appologize.
