Strange Tales of Georgia Politics and Media
I think these days the rationale behind outlawing gambling isn't biblical, it's that same patronizing notion of protecting people from themselves. If gambling is an addiction for some then we need to protect all from gambling away their measly assets.And yes, I recognize that we already allow certain addictive behaviors that have far more dire consequences than gambling. I didn't say it was consistent or made sense, just that I think this is the mindset of the gambling opposition. It's the same dumbasses who want to outlaw fattening foods to save fat people from themselves.
(Private) Gambling should be illegal so that the state can maintain its own monopoly on the, er, horrible, vile practice.I win.
An excellent point Garrett!But you added your own qualifier. Naughty, naughty!No gold star for you!
