its time


have you ever driven on i20 between dallas and shreveport
you see all those cars driving down the interstate at a fast pace
heading east with those texas license plates
those plates should read texa$
thats $$$$$ leaving the state of texas to shreveport
to those casinos there
drive into the parking area and probably most of the
cars have texas plates
and yes there will be a lot of arkansas plates also
thats arkan$a$ plates
theyre losing money also

two things people are going to do is
if either is done in moderation its probably ok
gambling is and should be entertainment
remember you will not win in the end
how do you think they build those big places in vegas
on your money
your losses

i like to gamble play cards play black jack do the slots
but i have a different view
its like going to an arcade
its just for entertainment
with no expectations of really winning a big pot of money
and i will occasionally buy a lottery ticket when the pot
gets real real big
heck for $2 why not

but i know like alcohol it can be an addiction
like a lot of things in our lives
it can certainly destroy families and devastate them financially

so i havent really gambled in 10 years
again people are going to do it
some government entity usually a state will benefit significantly
from this vice
like they do from alcohol and tobacco and probably should
for the weed

in texas the revenue from the gambling is zero
thats zero
if it was here we would get $1.5 billion dollars a year in revenue
most of which now goes to louisiana oklahoma and vegas

seems an easy decision to me

when we use to travel we use to play the city game to occupy
our kids time
this was pre electronic days where now you just flip on a dvd
and keep em busy

in this game you you name a city like dallas then the next person
had to name a city that started with an s say san antonio then
the next person had to say a city that started with an o etc

so you learned to prep for these by finding cities with an o
and especially cities with an e

so we well thats me
i scowered the maps for e cities
thats when i found eagle pass

eagle pass when i saw that in a news report i instantly knew
exactly where it was

its a small town in south texas thats has the kickapoo indian tribe
and since there is a quirk in our legal system
the tribe can have a casino on the reservation
can give a middle finger to rick and the state of texas
its the federal law

the city of eagle pass benefits immensely
as do those who live on the reservation

its a small version of what could happen in the state

remember its already happening now and the states not
getting any of the revenue
illegal gambling and those bus loads of grey heads headed to the
louisiana borders

yes it time
