If it cannot be placed back on the rails to discussing a specific company and programming offered in the bar setting of the Las Vegas area, it is beyond time to shut this thread down.
I don't care if it shuts down or not, but it does bring up an obvious observation so many on this and other sites ignore. If anyone does not want to read this thread, they can not read it and life is still ok. We all have the power to ignore or not read stuff, but yet people think a bad/derailed thread is somehow impeding them from something.

Re: PT's Pub and Entertainment Group Locations Ban All News Networks Except for Fox News

Has it been confirmed that this is actually PT's official policy or was the bartender simply misinformed or talking out of her ass? If the former, I too will be avoiding PT's. It's one thing to have on Fox News; it's another to say that no other channels are allowed whatsoever, even upon customer request.

Re: PT's Pub and Entertainment Group Locations Ban All News Networks Except for Fox News

I don't drink but will go there to give them some support. It's nice to see someone standing up to the 24hr a day anti American leftist propaganda stream. Sad how many weak minded have been brainwashed by their bs. Scary that some poker players would be fooled by them. Apparently you can do the math and look at the facts objectively with poker but then you turn a deliberate blind eye to all the facts and support a party that is actively trying to destroy this country. We are living the decline of a civilization because of Democrats. They have managed to take America from the Brady Bunch and Beach Boys and devolve it into the fractured, violent, drug filled country on the brink of destruction that we see today. Don't worry Democrats, you will get your wish soon, the incessant brainwashing, indoctrinating and fracturing of the weak minded whites along with the invasion of the bottom 30% of a 2nd world at best country has almost finished the U.S. . Soon every last thing that made this country great will be taken away and there will be no more Americans to speak up for our once great country and we will be the third world sh*thole that you have always wanted. This is actually a pretty accurate description of what's been happening...

Your opinions are exactly what I expect from the sort of person who links to the website of a British Holocaust denier.

Ground rules exist for a reason. It is the same reason the PA gaming authority levied fines when an unauthorized game was played. There are reasonable expectations that people come to harbor and that need to be maintained. This thread has derailed from a Las Vegas-specific issue.

Maybe a better analogy would be to liken it to the hoodie-wearing idiots at a table that don't have any social graces and fail to understand how their conduct drives people away. It makes precisely ZERO sense to adopt a position that will drive away prospective members of the live-environment player pool yet that is what allowing THIS sub-forum to delve into cesspool levels has the potential to yield...and given that many in THIS sub-forum WANT traffic to live games, we have a vested interest in keeping THIS forum on point.

I call ........ put up or shut up. Please show ONE lie told by Fox news this week.

Oh and CNN didn't jump to judgement and distort the coverage of Nick Sandmann either I guess.

I do watch Fox (as well as selected MSNBC and CNN broadcasts) and I am no idiot by any measurable standard one might care to apply.

It never fails to amaze and disappoint me why "Liberals" so quickly resort to name calling when anyone has the audacity to disagree with their "obvious" conclusion (AOC is a perfect example of this behavior).

I guess you just can't help yourself you have been potentially brainwashed to believe it and therefore in your mind it must be so.

If you don't like the thread, feel free to get out. I'm not interested in M-Life tier credits, yet somehow I restrain myself from going into their thread and asking for it to be removed.

At some point today, I'm going to a second PT's location to get confirmation on what the first bartender told me. It would be more than a little embarrassing to find out that the first bartender was wrong about the ban being company-wide.

Considering that some may look for non-Strip places to go either just to be different or because they are newly local to the area, those future readers of the thread should NOT be expected to have to wade through political crap simply because people refuse to recognize diverse political views.

2P2 has a politics-specific forum. Granted, it is dominated by people that seem to hate money and having retirement accounts that perform well, but that is where the political rhetoric should be located. NOT in LVL.

Yes, I'm sure those precious potential Vegas tourists will be shocked, shocked I say, to have their delicate jimmies rustled upon discovering that people on this message board hold a wide array of political beliefs.

Let me guess, you're the table captain at every game you sit down in, too.

As another posted stated, a mod already weighed in on this and said the discussion was fine. So, stop trying to boss others around and click elsewhere if you're so offended.

As a contrarian, whining excessively about something just makes me want to push harder. It's like how idiots complaining about BBA kind of makes me want to trigger them even more.

It's really hard at the poker table to not mock people who complain about bad beats.

Donít forget that PTs owns Strat and 2 Arizona Charlies now.

Boycott or patronize accordingly.

I think potential Las Vegas tourists pay good money to have their "jimmies rustled", if I catch your drift .... [nudge nudge, wink wink].

That mockery is one the main reasons I enjoy live play. Whining nits are fair game, sorry.

Why restrain yourself from a simple retort .... especially when the beat is hardly ever "bad" to begin with.... and the whiner will likely tilt badly for the next 15 minutes or so.

The people I wish I could target are often the whiny action players. If I went as far as I wanted to, I'd give them a fifteen minute explanation of how their bad play is directly linked to their being a bad parent and how they and their children deserve cancer.

This is awesome! I agree with the OP 100% and I hope all liberals agree with you and stop going to PT's. I have been looking for a bar that I didn't have to put with libs and snowflakes constantly making comments about my red hat (I wear it because I know how made it makes some people. I think its funny to watch the reaction and how it triggers liberals). Please... Keep spreading the word. Hopefully you can get this Liberal ban off the ground quickly. Stay strong and don't give up!

Re: PT's Pub and Entertainment Group Locations Ban All News Networks Except for Fox News

lol the energy you guys give to these people and networks....

let me clue you all in on something...

trump doesnt give a f about you...

clinton wouldnt have given an f about you...

whoever the next president is wont give an f about you...

congress doesnt give an f about you...

the talking heads dont give an f about you....

behind closed doors all these people get together and are laughing at you all at the consent you give them by continually voting in their elections and by the revenue you give them by watching them on the idiot box....

i dont want to start seeing these pointless threads all over lvl....

this community should deal with things that are real...there is already a forum for this dog and pony show....

This thread predictably went to hell in a handbasket, but i want to say to suited that I think your OP was well written and (in theory) could have led to a reasonable and even non-partisan discussion.

Then the internet happened.

Tucker Carlson tonight at approximately 20 seconds into his show insinuating all the FBI is doing right now is searching for Russian facebook trolls. This was in regards to the FBI uncovering the pay to enter college scam. Now this isnt exactly a lie as I am sure there are FBI agents helping to protect our country from Russian propaganda. But, as any person with common sense would guess, The FBI is doing more than that. Meanwhile, who is protecting us from propaganda that Tucker was spewing only 20 seconds into his show? Those little soundbites like that...where do you think all those 75 year old men sitting around at McDonald's in the morning drinking coffee huddled together talking politics....where do you think they get ideas like these implanted into their brains?

Now if that is not satisfactory, I guess I will take the time and listen to more than 20 seconds of Tucker's show. And yes, I know Tucker isnt a news anchor. But I do believe he has the 2nd highest rated segment in 24 hours of FOX. So if Tucker doesnt qualify, I guess I can go in and listen to some Steve Doocy. If that's not good enough as I realize Doocy is on a popular morning broadcast, I will go in and listen to one of the news anchors make their usual off the cuff lies. So just let me know what is good for you and, if necessary, I'll spend more than 20 seconds doing research.

EDIT: Sorry I was watching Tucker's episode from 3/12/19 I think. Not that it really matter......

In a perfect world all of you would wear your hat 24/7.......

And what you are telling us all is that you have the mentality of a a 6 year old picking on their sister just to see her get upset because that sort of thing makes you happy inside...seeing someone upset. Ok. Thanks for that little tidbit of info about yourself.

What is really up for debate here? A bar, or any other place that has TV stations placed within their establishment, can set the TV stations to their choosing. If there is something particular on TV that a patron wants to watch and the bar refuses to change the channel, your only recourse is to take your business elsewhere.

This is at the Flamingo & Decatur location.

Augie, everyone, I'm truly sorry to have wasted your time.



I could go back to the original banning location at Rainbow & Alta for an explanation but, **** it, if it's not company-wide, then good on Rainbow & Alta.
