I think I might be addicted to gambling. I go to the casino almost every day and lose most of the time. I've never found it to be a problem to walk about 120 feet to the ATM machine located directly outside the casino entrance. Well, off to th 21 table. Hope my stimulus
package arrives soon.

Yes, let's make it easier for people to loose their money, especially in this economy.

You note of course that the gambling rehab facilities are a lot further away than the ATM's are.

What? I have had no problem finding ATM's in any casino. Maybe if it wouldn't be that easy my SS check would last longer. FAT CHANCE

No one is forcing you to go to a casino!

Rather lose your SS check at a casino rather than buying food and other essentials, amazing!

That's right because it's everyone's fault except the person who has the gambling problem.

Man, they need an edit button on here. I also meant to say that if people are stupid enough to go blow their paychecks on gambling than that's their business and their fault. It's no one else's responsibility. The casinos are a business. Your goal when you own a business is to make money. If I owned a casino I would do the same thing. It's less time they are away from a machine and more money in my pocket.

My husband and I go maybe 3 times a year. We take $50 each. Pocket what we win and when the $50 is gone we go home.

I guess your idea of being smart means sucking the system such as welfare, food stamps, anchor babies.

Anchor babies?...Sucking...Concha don't take no crap. Absolutely talking with no proof. Keep trying. My being "SMART" goes a bit further than you think. The "SYSTEM" not my priority. Yours, maybe, not even close for me. Anchor babies? F U N N Y

I also hate gambling and smoke-filled casinos. I don't let them have any of my hard-earned money.

Another thing about casinos to beware of is that the restaurants are not licensed and inspected by the state (you know the green or red stickers on the restaurant windows?). Apparently they are exempt under tribal sovereignty.

Lobo Viejo, What's up, man. If we're to only eat where the license is displayed I'd starve. For 2 bucks you get the special of the month and all the free drinks you ask for. Coffee is of superior quality, believe me, and as the other drinks I only ask for diet. Have a life...
