Aquidneck Island the Next Silicon Valley...

The vison for prosperity on Aquidneck Island

I am going to keep this short and sweet.

There is a vision here that people concentrate on a down economy and how to just survive this unemployment issue.

What our local legislatures should be doing is creating an atmosphere more business friendly for the Navy Land.

Instead of concentrating on a losing issue with the Casino's they should shift all their effort in a more business friendly state and especially at the Navy Aquidneck Island plan. I don't mind back door handshake deals in this one, get the Business HERE.

For far too long these non leaders in our General Assembly and Senate have been looking for legislation that leads to litigation (quoting Andre D'Andrea). Which only makes them money in the long run.

Let's find more people for the people instead of D.W.I.'s falsely calling themselves a lawyer, hidden handshake deals over lunch in Providence that don't work. All of them have officially been caught with their hand in the candy jar, but the Candy jar is empty and they keep trying to get at it.

Now envision this, Business that would prosper in the winter and let the employees somewhat relax and enjoy the summer while the hospitality industry handles that time segment. Many businesses are looking for quality of life for their employee also. A Casino is not the answer.

Look for a vision in making a business friendly state, cut taxes and regulation (which will not happen with all the incumbents in seeing mostly are lawyers that make a buck of their own legislation.) watch this small state prosper, especially the Aquidneck Island.

Until this state changes the way it taxes everything from people to the air we breath it is never going to happen. Business is not going to come here the way things are and be taxed to death. State and local taxes are unreal here and what we get for our taxes is less and less each year so the so called need for more tax funds goes up and more politicians will have their hands in the cookie jar more and more. Need proof? Just look at the so called Need for Tolls on the new bridge. Just more money for the politicians to play with else where in this state. So where has all the Federal matching funds and state bond money gone to? PLEASE don't tell me into our so called excellent road system. We are just so lucky I guess.

Voting yes on the casino gaming (adding tables to the casino's) will bring in a large revenue. Aquidneck Island brings in mega rich people from Conn and Boston not to mention the million dollar yahts all summer long, these people are looking for more than slot machines and they can afford it.
