Williams says Senate may end session Friday without considering slots

So read the headline, but it should have read Senate President David Williams is an idiot. By making statements like “the slots bill, you know, you can stick a fork in it, it’s done” or “we need to get out of town before some people in the House get in trouble,” when asked to explain that one he said, “you know what I mean by that” (uh… no I don’t) he has proven himself to be the biggest dolt since Homer Simpson (by the way look at his picture remove the hair and glasses and you know what they look remarkably similar humm…).

This is nothing more then politics at its worse the guy is obviously more worried about keeping his rear-end in office then taking care of his state. Apparently he looks at the horse industry as the proverbial “red headed step child” that he can kick around how ever he wants and still get away with it. But here’s what the short-sighted idiot still doesn’t seem to realize the millions of dollars that the Thoroughbred industry pumps into the Kentucky economy today doesn’t mean it will be there tomorrow.

All he would have to do to see an example of that fact is to look north to Ohio. At one point it was a place where people in neighboring states flocked to in order to find jobs. But a funny thing happened along the way the politicians became fat and sassy, when other states began offering businesses tax breaks to move their companies Ohio politicians balked at matching the offers and guess what…they moved. Dayton a once thriving city is a veritable ghost town with probably a third of the city boarded up, and the largest building in the city in foreclosure.

So go ahead state Senator Williams and play political games and watch the fallout you cause, but hey you won’t be in office very much longer anyway.
