Doral, FL saving itself from a huge headache

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/a-florida-city-has-banned-casinos-in-an-apparent-attempt-to-stop-trump-building-one-there/ar-AAKU4zV?ocid=U483DHP&li=BBnb7Kz


A Florida city has banned casinos in an apparent attempt to stop Trump building one there


Doral city council on Wednesday voted by 4-0 to ban gambling and casinos unless they were approved by the city's residents in a referendum, the Miami Herald reported.

It comes after Gov. DeSantis - a close ally of Trump - struck a deal last month which laid the foundations for the former president to build a casino at Trump National Doral Miami, a golf resort owned by the former president and run by his son Eric.

Doral city council first passed the legislation banning casinos as emergency legislation in May, and this week passed the same law on a non-emergency basis, the Herald reported, as city officials try to prevent the future construction of casinos in city limits.


************************************

Can see it now, lots of businesses getting contracts to build a casino, and provide services to the casino, only to never get paid because you-know-who ends up running it into the ground and filing for bankruptcy.

Not like it hasn't happened before.

1. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.


Hopefully, residents of Doral don't want casinos, either. Watch DeSantis get involved to try to strong arm Doral into accepting gambling and casinos or Dolt 45* files a lawsuit over it.

2. They're great places...

to launder money though. Looks like "Gums" will have to come up with another idea. They're plumb out of golf courses and casinos to run into the ground, and Trump condominiums are tanking in value.

What's a crime family to do when the law is closing in?

3. Watch how faithful Republicans are to their "local control" promises

Doral will soon find out that locals aren't fit to govern themselves, and they will need to be instructed by their betters on whether a casino is plopped down in the middle of their city limits. Oh, and it's going to need a huge tax break to start construction, and a decade or two of tax abatements so that the casino can create oodles and oodles of jobs. You don't mind if Doral's children become a ready supplier of low-paid labor at the casino, do you? Doral's schools are soon going to be failing because there won't be any money for them, so it's kind of a neat little labor pipeline that will soon be in place.

4. My good friend's father passed away and I googled his name looking for the obit. My friend owns a

a company that brings players to Atlantic City casinos. The obit had not yet been published but the google search showed my friend’s name associated with a legal proceeding. He was named, along with thousands of others, as an unsecured creditor who Trump’s casino owed money to when he filed his 2014 bankruptcy. A mere two years later this fraud was elected president.

6. I remember douchebag going at it with JEB in the debates

Jeb claimed Donny tried bribing people to get casino licenses in Florida, and douchebag responded that if he wanted a casino in Florida he wouldn't let any politicians get in his way or some ominous nonsense like that.

7. Oh good lord!

Hasn't Trump learned his lesson about casinos? Apparently the idiot never learns, though I think his cognitive abilities are in serious decline.

9. Actually, he learned his lesson quite well.

Launder many millions for the Russian mob and pay a fine for “irregular” bank reporting, siphon as much money as possible out of the organization until not much is left except debt, declare bankruptcy, and leave the investors holding the bag with virtually no assets. He repeated this process several times until no one would invest with him.

15. Exactly. Orange dumbass made plenty of money.

But no one else did.

He and Romney have the same business model. Establish yourself as the "manager" of a company with investors. Pay yourself exorbitant management fees, thus "harvesting the wealth" of your investors. Company goes belly up, oops! oh well. Rinse, repeat.

20. That is true

I just can't imagine who on the planet is left to bail him out. I don't think even the Russians have any use for him anymore. He has already served his purpose and I would think he is just a nuisance now. Maybe in his puny little brain, Trump actually believes that Putin still loves him.

11. How would he get to build one if he is broke, owes a lot of money?

Is Putin still financing this buffoon? I mean, who lends money to this guy who has shown the World he is totally incompetent in business, as a president, as a person? The only thing he is good at is screwing up people, even those who lend him money!

My goodness, some people love being punished...I don't get it!

13. "other people's money"

The best real estate rule!

Or they'll make it an Indian casino, which would probably be able to circumvent the city ban
