    That is incorrect.

    Most of us are FAR ahead of where we were when he took office.

    We are down for the year 2018, all six weeks of it so far, that's all.

    This weekend I received a catalog from the local community college for what was labelled "non-credit" courses. Because I am a computer age illiterate dinosaur, I browsed it looking for some computer courses. I noticed that it seems it may actually have a casino department. It listed multiple courses regarding casino games--basic strategy for black jack, how to play the odds and which bets to avoid on a dice table and so on. It also offered multiple courses on casino employment-how to deal black jack, how to run a dice table or a roulette wheel and so on.

    I don't care for casinos or gambling, but they are here to stay.

    I do not mind going to them, because I can get a good deal on a room, and it's a cheap, easy way to get away for a day or two.

    Plus, Vegas has lots to see and do, even for us non gamblers.

    If the casinos are hiring Americans, that is a good thing...

    Actor Ben Affleck was banned for life from playing blackjack at the Hard Rock Cafe in Vegas after security officers busted him counting cards, a source told The Post Friday.

    Counting cards is a gambling strategy that decreases betting risk in blackjack. It isn’t illegal but many casinos forbid it, and it’s grounds for getting kicked out. It involves remembering which cards have already been played to determine the odds of whether or not to place a high bet.

    He raked in $800,000 in blackjack winnings at the Hard Rock by playing three $20,000 hands in one night in 2001. He recently joined his buddy Matt Damon to participate in the World Series of Poker.

    Trump should appoint one of Putin's oligarchs run the show and take a cut. That way the casino never run out of money with all the laundering possibilities.
