Fire the Gambling Board for it has deftly demonstrated its ineptness in the licensing procedure.

This whole thing is so stupid. How did gambling get to be illegal in the first place? Seems to me that one of the God given freedoms that all people have is to take a chance. If you really think about it, the state has no business in this business anyhow. Besides they have proven, once again, that government is not the answer, it's the problem.

The "board" isn't even elected. Kill the concept, let private business take care of itself.

The State has no business in a number of areas: public transportation -- what a farce; education -- what education? Ohhh, you mean dumbing down, eh?; milk board -- milk costs what now???; alcohol -- we're paying how much in taxes for a bottle of wine??? The Gambling Board is just one more place for the corrupt officials to get yet more money...oh, and place their friends and buddies in cushy jobs.
