FK – The mafia didn’t build Vegas so they could give money away. The assholes who started the state lotteries didn’t have charity in their hearts. Yes, we should be free to be stupid. But the rich assholes who own those facilities/companies don’t give a damn if we live or die, simple fact. I have no problem with a heavy ‘gambling tax’ on their profits, where it should be, to pay for programs to help the idiots and addicted because many of them will be the ones the commies point to and say “See, we need a safety net.”
All the ‘isms’ ignore those aspects of human behavior/nature they find inconvenient.
