Politics, is what it boils down to. I recently received a pamphlet on how much the casino's give back to the community (which is hogwash). I think they should send out a graph stating the statistics on how many lives/family's they have ruined. I know 2 family's personally. These were/are good people, they had difficulty in there lives and were desperate. With all the creative marketing out there...they got pulled in for a short time. That short time created a very tragic future.
we'll have to be creative as well, and find another way!!
I couldn't agree more. If only we could take your post and have it submitted to our local newspapers. I believe it would make the "gambler" think about what he/she is doing, not only to him/herself but to their loved ones. I believe gambling is an illness and these poor souls and their families need our prayers. May Our Lord help them and send more people like you with this urgent message, so they can turn their lives around.
