    Moving to Las Vegas

    I am looking for a place in Las Vegas where the money can stretch a little better. Has anyone here ever lived there? I have been searching on Craiglist and there are lots of affordable townhomes/apartments.

    I assume you are talking about the suburbs of Vegas. Vegas got hit the worst when the real estate market crashed. There are still tons of homes that can be had for cheap. You can basically get anything that will suit your needs.

    BTW, the water is awful.

    I have seen lots of ads for $900 for 1300-1400 sq ft townhouses. I am currently renting for $2400, the cost of living here is extremely high (loaf of bread $5 dollars, 1 gallon of water $4 dollars, etc. Not to mention, sequestration has killed small companies and contractors to make matters worst.

    That cesspool of broken souls with its oh so glamorous lights is a wasteland of broken lives ,whores with half a heartbeat due to the cocaine .Lifeless dead eyes stare at you while their abused flesh floats about. Addicted degenerate gamblers in half way decent clothes pretending everythings fine while they spend every last cent on some stupid game of chance..coffee always drinking coffee in big cups. Then the douchebags who go there for vaction those can be tolerated they pass through quickly, think their all rock stars go home on the plane crying broke and hopefully with a little luck an awful STD. Those that live there should be shot on site if they ever plan to move out of that state. There's really no words to explain those people I've seen them my uncle is one of them and I would certainly shoot him if he didn't fly his ass right back there after the holidays. It's a hopeless soulless place that uncle Sam thinks is perfectly ok while housewife becomes hooker and husband becomes half assed hustler that in reality cant hustle sht.

    Meanwhile I have to break my ass to throw a couple hundred on line to play online poker because that's illegal. But Vegas it's Apple American ****ing pie legal. Enjoy yourself youll be weeping naked in a shower you don't even recognize before Christmas. While a whore makes off with your last piece of pride and your wallet.

    It's a shame about that sequestration. Barry vowed it wouldn't happen on national TV.

    I wouldn't suggest living in Vegas unless you have to do so for work. Some parts of Arizona are very nice.

    Everything in NY is way overpriced. That is why there is an exodus going on, especial with retirees. If you go to Carolina pretty much everyone is from NY.

    Cocaine is extremely hard to get out there. Everyone smokes meth, takes ecstasy or molly and everyone acts like they have money but dont. I went last summer after a break up I publicly asked for help with on this board. Vegas was the worst thing I could of done. Many good stories as I look back now. Lost alot of brain cells, but had some fun.

    Sounds like a great place for someone with a substance abuse problem to relocate to.

    Very deep and accurate thoughts by you.

    Internet poker will be legal once again..as predicted. They just had to have their monster cut, and will get it, under the guise of "protecting" the player by regulating and TAXING it.

    You know I was one of the ones that lost over fifteen grand due to the seized FTP accounts. Now I find out even when FTP becomes legal which it will it's the first one to submit the application later this year. The money that was in your account is still being held by the dept of justice. It's going to be legal under the same law that made it not illegal in the first place. Same with stars and party poker. This" protecting" us American players is such an insult. They just couldn't stand that everyone was having a great time playing poker in cyberspace and they couldn't get there hand in the pot. Stay out of my pocket!!! Meanwhile the aqueduct resorts casino is legal.....I beg any of you to go there and see the absolute Robbery of social security benefits and minimum wage paychecks. Nys regulated slot machines. Look it up

    sounds like a cross between Robert Shaw in Jaws and Nicholas Cage in Leaving Las Vegas...fantastic!
