MA government Cretins think this is one answer to their grotesquely irresponsible spending to support their perverted personal sense of social justice. We already have more lotteries than any other state. When the republicans are again voted in, they had better begin to govern responsibly and restore order and law. They can start by dumping Senator Orin Hatch, a colossal buffoon and appeaser who actually recently said Mrs. Clinton was a viable candidate for consideration as a Supreme Court justice. What has this ugly degenerate ever accomplished to deserve such lofty honor?
If nothing changes, a black market will emerge and expand, ordinary citizens, overwhelmingly frustrated by government of the governing class, by the governing class and for the governing class will begin to openly defy authority, civil disobedience will become ordinary and eventually pockets of insurrection will begin to destabilize and further erode our political/economic landscape.

I disagree with getting more casinos. Obviously they can create tax income for the state. I just don't think it teaches citizens good financial sense. Gambling money is not a good way to create wealth and therefore better your social situation.

We watch millions go to Connecticut. Why not keep some here. Besides, casinos are fun. Is it okay to have fun?

I was going to move back to MASS. After this foolish mess, I will move elsewhere. Back where I was or maybe up to Maine.
