From Riley J. Hood, State Chairman of the Constitution Party of Wisconsin.
“Woe to him that buildeth a town with blood,
and stablisheth a city by iniquity!” Habakkuk 2:12
By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman
In the mid-1980′s, the Mooba-2 Slaughterhouse and the Ember Meat Packing Plant were part of the Peck Meat Packing Company. All of which were located “in the river valley,” or “under the viaducts.” Canal St. was zoned for industry, and in particular meat packing, tanning and tallow.
The area stunk, but it stinks more today; because the City of Milwaukee is being de-industrialized and places of production and industry are being replaced with “condos,” “boutiques,” and the Milwaukee “Riviera.”
What started out as a bingo hall, run by the Potowotomi Tribe has metastasized into a full casino, and as announced on 7/1/2014 is no longer a “bingo and casino” establishment, but a “casino and hotel,” establishment.
This means it will function as a “Casino and Brothel.” I would dare say “What goes on in Vegas,” isn’t staying in Vegas, and has now transplanted itself in the City of Milwaukee. Crime problems, particularly prostitution and sex trafficking will increase, so will the poverty rate.
Milwaukee and Wisconsin need to get back to work, and that means real jobs. It is time for the citizens of this State to stop allowing themselves to be swindled by the easy money boys and their card tricks. Wisconsin families deserve better. The women of Wisconsin deserve a better station in life than that of stripper, go-go girl and prostitute.
The Constitution Party of Wisconsin has been on record since 1993 as being foursquare against gambling, our Platform states, “Gambling promotes an increase in crime, destruction of family values, and a decline in the moral fiber of our country. We are opposed to government sponsorship, involvement in, or promotion of gambling, such as lotteries, or subsidization of Native American casinos in the name of economic development.”
