The State Casino
If you want to take money that you have earned and burn it in the fire that should be your prerogative. I am essentially libertarian in regard to economic self-determination. The state should regulate casinos but not be the casino. If casinos offered the same odds of winning as the state-sponsored lotteries do, the regulators from the state would properly shut them down. Table games on the riverboat afford the suckers a much greater chance to win than pick six or pick seven state-sponsored gaming. As far as the education scholarships funded by the state lotteries go, it seems tuition increases each time scholarships increase, essentially negating any benefit of the lottery scholarships. All in all, I find it reprehensible for the state to be in the gambling business.
