A Crazy Thing Happened On My Way To Forming An Opinion —

A Crazy Thing Happened On My Way To Forming An Opinion

It happened again, but caught myself this time.

I was asked for and mistakenly found myself in a situation where it was necessary to project an opinion.

It happened so quickly I forgot myself.

This usually happens when one is passionate about a subject matter.

Most, being open to do so (free speech), have every right to lend  thoughts or opinion http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opinion.

You know, those lengthy forms of expression which normally are based upon someones personal interest. Rarely could they be offered from a position absent of self.

This is where the main concern enters in, the preposterous idea of contributing selflessly to the benefit of others prior to one’s self.

A certain position outside of me and into we.

This is most certainly why (as of late) my contributions to the Downtown Sioux City Casino opinion has slowed.

 

It took quite a bit of contemplation, but quickly It was realized  that opinions were mostly a selfish projection of a petty self.

As realized, this is our human nature, it happens to the best of us.

To improve, I led myself down a path to be rid of thoughtless level 1 thinking into the more admirable level 2 (deep thought approach).

 

The following is a description of where I arrived.

 

We are going to get a new Casino, most likely downtown.

Many will (or are going to) be offering our wonderful community highly advanced proposals to this effect.

While I had been thinking the offer which provides our entire community the most bang for our buck, would be best.

This contemplation has a few holes in it.

1) Yes, we do want to receive the most advanced facility. Who knows when (if ever) we will get another chance.

2) Yes, most of us agree that the operating percentage paid by the City and MRHD needs to increase.

3) It is an afterthought at this point to realize the location will be in the downtown area.

4) What facilities should it have? To me, it would be of most benefit to our community if the facility was venue and feature rich.

 

So who is the ideal candidate?

What profile could be constructed about them prior to receiving all the proposals?

A) Must have successful experience in building and operating a scalable gaming facility.

B) Must possess the necessary financial resources to begin and weather any financial storm.

C) Be headquartered close to home so most (if not all) the operating revenue is energized back into the community.

D) Ability to embrace the residents of Sioux City with a facility which appeals to our unique culture and history

E) Ability to attract the most Casino visitors from the furthest reaches of its market.

F) Allow for a minimal investment from the city to get it built and running.

So to realize the selfless approach, the favored candidate should serve everyone rather than someone.

Thus far it is quite clear, the Ho-Chunk/ Warrior proposal most certainly would favor our community very well.

Cheers!
