Opponents look to kill bill allowing casinos, slots

I'm glad there are others trying to stop the insane idea of Kansas owned gambling of every sort, casinos and slot machines to be run by the government, even if it is illegal for government employees to operate them. Knowing two women personally, whose husbands lost their homes for them through gambling, only tells me that Kathleen Sebelius is out of touch with the citizens, or refuses to listen to those opposing the casinos.

Even if Kansas does not have gambling, people will take their money to Missouri or other place where it is legal. Learning the art of self-restraint rather than condeming a whole sector of business which would by its presence benefit the state funding issue is crazy. Maybe your friends husbands should have dialed 1-800-BETS-OFF.

Like the mistake prohibition was, having so many inane restrictions on gambling is a mistake. Our nation is about taking personal responsibility for ourselves. Whatever happened to 'rugged individualism'?
I believe the puritanical scruples are still with us today in overrestrictions on our liberties. This is especially noted in states like KS.
It's a shame, really.
