The Lantern Watch (Welcome Home)

Recommended Posts

I don't understand how a dermatologist makes it to public office.

 

All the problems in the State and the jokers in Montgomery's biggest goal right now is to get gay marriage banned again.

smh.....................and the never ending saga to prevent legal gambling from bringing much needed revenue into a revenue poor state.   My morals have never been so protected.

This state does not need legal gambling.

 

I have worked in the industry. The market for gambling is utterly over saturated. Mississippi casinos are dieing.

 

If you're talking about a lottery than that revenue rarely goes to where they say its going(education). North Carolinas gaming revenue is said to go towards education but their education budget has gone down. The gaming revenue is no where to be found.

 

Also gambling is detrimental to poor people of then State. Studies show that people who make under $30,000 gamble far more money than people who make over that amount.

 

Gambling is bad news. Its a shady business. It is is surrounded by corruption. The money will do nothing but fill politicians pockets.

The lottery is simply a tax on poor people. It is not the savior of education as the propaganda ads claim. Mississippi has billions in gambling revenue and their education is poorly made socks. Almost every State that has implemented an education lottery has not increased their education budget or marketedly improve their education system.

 

Its a scam for people in power to remove more money for the working class. Instead of custard the working class they could always raises taxes on the rich because they have to much of of the nations money anyways and they don't get taxed near enough.

Anyway, I hate what talking politics does to me, so I'm gonna see if we can swing this very off-topic discussion to something other than Alabama's voluntary poor people tax.

 

To anything.

 

For instance, who is up for TOR or Tera later today? :D

Nice try Seventh.  We will not discuss the economy or lack there of in this Beautiful State :)   Besides, CYT will need to concentrate on how he can make Idaho a much better place to live )
