It is a very destructive force that usually only benefits a few people, but hurts a great many.

As far as making it illegal - I don't know if I would go that far. But I will raise my son and daughter to believe that gambling is wrong, and taking money from those that gamble is even worse.
Morally opposed, but not legally opposed. I can live with that.

I thought this was a 'Riverboat Gambling' thread, not a 'Gambling' thread.

Riverboat Gambling is a form of gambling, and the most relevant and controversial form that is being offered on our voting ballots. Casino gambling for the most part is a non-issue that never got anywhere except a few places legalized in the States.

Hopefully that helps.

^ ah right I get it. i thought gambling was prevalent throughout the US and the issue here was tax avoidance.

Surely there are more important things in the world to sort out before addressing discretionary activities though

Sounds like nanny-state politics to me.
