Just another place for the poor, living below poverty guidelines Clearfieldians to go and drop their cash (provided by government programs, SSI and cash assisstance)that is provided for daily living expenses, BTW. I don't care, this is still a gambling joint, even though they say it's not. When you go in, pay your cash, and leave with no cash, that's gambling. All the claims of how much you can win are doubtful. Go inside, filled with the unemployed losers, losing the money for their rent and utilities. Well, hey now they have a choice, slots or lottery tickets.

they'll walk out of there and head straight to the nearest church and ask for some money to pay their water or electric bill.

It is absolutely disgusting. I get mad every time I drive by. Almost every business that comes into Clearfield fails but I'm sure this will thrive. Sad!

It's simple. If you don't like a business, don't patronize it. I would think that ANY business that comes into a community and thrives is a good thing. That business, in turn, supports the community, broadens the tax base, and increases the economic growth of a town.

I see you have never dealt with those who blow their money on stupid things and then cry because their utilities are getting shut off. This type of business doesn't support the community, it is a burden on it.

No more of a "burden" than bingo, and yes, when a business pays taxes it supports a community...

@ WTF:
you still didn't answer the question of where this place is located in Clearfield!
I do believe that the person wanted to know and instead got a truly ignorant answer.
REALLY, why do people have to be rude all of the time.
Kindness gets you further in life.
Could anyone KINDLY answer this question ~ Where in Clearfield is this located???
I'm pretty sure there are plenty of people beside myself who weren't /aren't aware of this business
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE
I'm not yelling,(the caps) would just like a legitimate response.

Except for the fact that most bingo's are entertainment and sponcered by a church, fire hall or 501C. This is a private, for profit business, and it will burden much more than the free twinkies and cokes it gives away to the players (probably to keep them all on a sugar high so they keep on playing those slots until they run out of money.)The house always wins. I guess some people are unaware of this. You know, the ones that think they'll get rich from bingo, slots or lottery tickets. Ever hear the term wasteful consumption? If you can't afford to take care of yourself as it is, why waste money on this crap?
Oh, because you get the money from some entitlement program and didn't have to work for it? Oh, I totally understand now.

You know what Clearfield needs? A really good blood bank, now that would do a good business. You could donate blood, get paid, and then go blow it on the slots. If you didn't have AIDS or Hep B or C, which leaves a lot of people out of the donor pool. And you can't be on drugs either, drug users aren't the healthiest of people.

BTW, if you don't like a business, you can do a lot more than not patronize it. You can post on topix, so people can decide for themselves to also not patronize it.

Who ever let this place set up in Clearfield? Another money sucking hell hole for those who are easily led astray, manipulated, and convinced that this is a good way to spend their $$$, instead of using it for food and shelter and daily living expences like utilities.

Would you agree that a nice "titty bar" supports the community, and increases the economic growth of a town? How about an adult movie theater, or porno shop? Then you wouldn't have to drive so far to get your sex toys.

You really didn't think about that when you said ANY business. Think before you post, will you? Maybe they can locate themselves down the street from your house.

While you may be right about the porn shop-movie theater the titty bar definately provides some jobs. Just sayin'.

Actually, I apparenty gave it more thought than you. A business is a business. If people like it, it will do well. If not, it will fail. All of your prudish whining won't change that.
As for your elementary school judgement of me and my income, well, you really do show your ignorance along with your arrogance.
