Las Vegas Officially Recession Proof . . . NOT !!!

Well, the big news from Las Vegas this week is LAYOFFS and HIRING FREEZES!!! Can you spell R-E-C-E-S-S-I-O-N ??!! -- it's kinda like D-I-V-O-R-C-E . . . a dirty little word that should be spelled out so the kids don't freak out and think the world is coming to an end.

Of course, the world, or more specifically THEIR world IS coming to an end, and if you didn't get a pink slip this week, well, just wait -- no one safe when the gravy train wrecks.

Yep, the sky is falling . . . but not for the muckety mucks in the corner office -- they'll hang on to their jobs and ride out the down cycle if they can just keep the pesky front line from eating into their little utopia.

The big word here is IF . . . and as I've reported before, when the head honchos are losing billions in stock value, heads are gonna roll faster than video reels.

Here is how the local media sums it up --
"Harrah's Responds to Slowdown with Labor Reductions"

This is 9/11 Bull Sh*t all over again. They will all wave the flag as they screw the working man. Another prime example of the f*cked up world we live in. God Bless America.

Of course what the brilliant minds in the conference room never understand is that the grinders will keep grinding if they present us with true value and a fair shake.

Loosen up the slots, and keep the free buffets coming -- 'cuz we do need to console ourselves with food, drink, and slots in these troubled times.

Yeah, like THAT is gonna happen.
