You won't find any image of either Romney with Adelson or Ryan with Adelson anywhere. They want to keep it that way because Adelson's casino money may soon become a political toxic landfill.

They definitely got replaced with cybernetic organisms... living tissue over a robot body.

Just like in the terminator.

Someone linked me this video a while back and it still makes me laugh every time.

Romney - tax evader in chief

Maybe this is something else we agree on!

VQkag2 is a two-faced political hack (liar for hire) and this pro-war post proves it:

http://occupywallst.org/forum/google-sheldon-adelson-justice-department-prostitu/

sheldon adelson justice department prostitution google those words and you will see the shamelessness the the right wing in America. They are demanding that Adelson not be investigated because he is a donor to the Republican Party. This logic would have had Al Capone and Bugsy Siegel immune from prosecution and police scrutiny. They'd just have had to pay off the Republican Party. The investigation, (and I hope it has teeth and is not backed away from by the DOJ and SEC under this intense fire) has plenty of basis to exist. Just peruse this blogsite and you'll see.

I notice that the Press was vbarred from Romney's fundraiser in Israel and Ryan's in Vegas. Easy to understand. They don't want any news fotogs catching them with Adelson. Never can tell what that would bring....

I don't know. It's public that there are DOJ and SEC investigations that are ongoing. The Steven Jacobs lawsuit against Sands is on with a hearing scheduled August 30. The judge wants Adelson's lawyers to explain some missing emails that weren't missing after all, just misplaced on the wrong continent.

BARCELONA, Spain — Laid-off businesspeople in designer clothes eating in soup kitchens. Young people flocking to study German in the hope of emigrating. Frantic regional governments battling to outdo each other to attract scant investment.

Spaniards are desperate.

Enter American casino magnate Sheldon Adelson.

The controversial owner of the Las Vegas Sands Corp. and third-richest American wants to build a version of the Nevada gambling mecca in the outskirts of Madrid or Barcelona. A mega-resort dedicated to entertainment and business conferences, it would include 12 hotels, six casinos and three golf courses spread across 2,000 acres — the biggest urban development project in Spain since the 1992 Olympics.

The main hook: EuroVegas would create up to 250,000 jobs in a country where almost 6 million people, up to a quarter of the workforce, are unemployed.

At least that was the pitch until the projected number fell to 14,000 when the company’s directors visited Spain in June, when they also announced a drop in investment from $21 billion to $7.3 billion, two-thirds of which would have to come from Spanish banks.

Nevertheless, Spain’s two largest cities are lobbying hard against each other for the bid.

“EuroVegas is very important,” said Andreu Mas-Colell, economy minister for Catalonia, of which Barcelona is capital. “We are making the necessary efforts to bring it here.”

But despite the project’s attractiveness to officials, it's generating heated opposition from a growing number of critics who question its viability and criticize what they say would be its harm to society.

Among the grassroots organizations to have joined the protest, "EuroVegas No" represents more than 30 unions and environmental NGOs, as well as the indignados movement that inspired the Occupy movement in New York.

“This project is based on the same economic model that delivered Spain into the crisis to begin with,” says the platform’s spokesperson Maria Fernandez, “speculation in construction and real estate.”

However, she is most unhappy about exceptions to dozens of laws and regulations that Adelson is believed to be demanding for his casinos. Adelson — who is the largest individual financial donor to Republican candidates in the US 2012 presidential campaign — has already opened resorts abroad in Singapore and on the Chinese island of Macao.

Las Vegas Sands has asked the Spanish government to ease labor, immigration and money laundering laws, give minors access to casinos and suspend the national smoking ban in enclosed public spaces, according to the newspapers
