gambling is evil

Yes, it is--- except when government runs it. Then, it goes beyond evil into a pure sucker's game. Just look at the stats there.

I'm not saying BAN THE LOTTERIES or telling you not to buy tickets. Hell, who doesn't want to get rich quick? Go for it. I just think it's totally hypocritical for the government to sponsor a lottery and still bust bookies who place bets on football games. Gambling is either evil, or it isn't.

Government should make up its fucking mind.


Ahh, if the gubmint could figure a way to get its grubby mitts on a hefty percentage of the bookies' action, all gambling would be legal.

I'm not surprised. Boortz calls the lottery the stupid tax, and I tend to agree with him. I was in a convenience store earlier this evening, and the guy in front of my spent $23 on lottery tickets and scratch-offs.

You could get a bottle of Jack for that, and I guarantee you you'd get a better return on your investment.

Granted, if I see a jackpot over $50 million or so, I'll spend a buck. But I don't really pay that much attention, and can't recall the last time I actually bought a ticket. But scratch-offs? I'll never buy one of those.
