When families move to Elmont, many move with the American Dream in mind. They move to live in fully detached houses with a one or two car garage, 2.5 children, a dog and a white picket fence.
It appears to the recently gerrymandered community of Elmont that local politicians and some misguided community activists have added, “and a casino in the backyard” to the American dream.
Let’s be clear, casinos appeal to vice – to human frailty! What would suggest to politicians like Martins, Ambrosino, Mangano and others, that unlike them, the average Elmont resident embraces the newly defined American dream as one that includes “a casino in the backyard?”
Let’s be clear, a casino in Elmont is a precursor to prostitution, the occasional murder and dramatic riots, as are evident at Aqueduct’s Resort World Casino a mere 9 miles away.
Like the ill-conceived “Cosmos Soccer Field of Dreams” the Elmont casino must not stand!
It is true that when well trained horses are ridden around an oval and spectators bet on the outcome that that is indeed gambling. But horse racing is seasonal and episodic, and a casino is not. It will likely be open for unrest 24/7/365.
