Okay you win.

It's time to shut everything down.

37 bars in Clark County are suing for unfair treatment saying they were singled out and casino floors can still operate.

Then let's shut the casino floors too. And shut all businesses. After all... you're telling us that warmer temps don't work, social distancing won't work, UV lights won't work, hand washing and sanitizing won't work, gloves and masks won't work, so shut it all down.

Oh... but 99% recover? Well, be sure you volunteer for the 1% who die.

Reject all the alternatives and you have to turn off the lights. The party is over.

The "diminishing or going away" during the hotter summer months, was just a theory based on how the flu behaves. But this is not the flu and it is one of many things the experts have made an educated guess about and have been wrong. This is a new virus and they just don't know how it behaves. They are learning more everyday.

And that is precisely why I have tried to be overly cautious every step of the way. I decided the casino environment was a problem and shut down my casino play before casinos shut down. And when they re-opened, I went back but quickly decided that people weren't doing things they were supposed to do like wear masks and stopped my casino play....MY LIVLIHOOD yet again.

Unfortunately 2 years ago after my partner died, I moved to a condominium, a multi-home, multi family type place and that worked against me and my brother and I both caught this damn virus. When we both got through it, I was relieved and though that gave us some protection or immunity going forward. Based on new evidence emerging, I no longer think that.

The point is, that this remains a new virus that they are learning new things about everyday. We don't know when it goes away. We don't know if a person can contract it a second or third time. We don't know how long any immunity might last. We don't know if at some point it will start to mutate in a way, that REALLY screws us all. So far mutation or different strains have been minor.

There is so much we don't know. But what we do know is that wearing a mask helps minimize transmission as does social distancing. Incredibly to my way of thinking, a good portion of the population has decided they just can't or don't want to be bothered. And the result is you look at the charts for the U.S. vs almost every other country and we are the worst. Almost every other country has managed to get a pretty good grip on this thing. We have failed. This isn't political, I am not blaming anyone in particular, I am blaming the American people, unwilling to do what needs to be done. Just can't be bothered. The result is this virus is going to be part of our lives for a very long time.

On a positive note, real estate prices here in Vegas are surprisingly UP. They dipped a bit the first month of the shutdown, but then immediately returned to levels above pre-shutdown. I am seriously considering selling my condo and buying a small ranch 90 minutes outside of Vegas that I have had my eye on. I looked at the property last fall, long before this virus, but didn't pull the trigger. I am ready to get out of Vegas in a more rural community for a couple years. All I have to do is convince my brother who loves our current condo.

Alan, I am surprises at your " just wanting to go about your business" attitude, being that you are among the more vulnerable population based on age and previous health issues. ??? What is the deal, are you just unwilling to give up your precious gambling even at the risk of your health and life? Is gambling THAT important to you?

Wow are you wrong.

Have you looked at my Facebook page? Ive been saying the casinos should never have reopened.

Ive been saying the country should have stayed in lockdown and the federal government should have paid us to stay locked down.

Would these be the ones marketed near Dolan Springs? I looked at them and loved the price. Then I looked into Dolan Springs. Its a very, very religious community who weren't happy that the development was being built and two people expressed fear that homosexuals would buy weekend retreats and promote their lifestyle while shopping in town.

I like the Overton area. I thought it was a bit remote but then I moved to the middle of nowhere.
