Here we go again is right. Another group of people determined that the rest of the state of AL bend to their will. I can not understand why there is such a push to keep gambling in MS, LA and other surrounding states. On any given Saturday night you can follow the line of cars from Alabamam right over to MS to the casinos. Why not keep that money in AL???

So better him than someone out of the state of Alabama..Who has the right to tell us what we can do with our money..If people want to gamble if they have enough of sense to know when to quit it is no different than someone who can take an occasional drink and a person who does not know when to quit...I had rather the money stay in alabama to help our kids schools and our roads which our state can not keep our roads up because they don't have the funding come to Ragland and check out our roads we are a small town so therefore we get less money because we don't have as many people in our towns as the big cities...Just like the advertising that is out now where Randy Ownes says let the people vote on it..The ones who do vote for the electronic bingo let them have it if you don't want to gamble stay away from it...No body is forcing you into the place..I can not stand the fact of the people who try and tell other people what they can do with their money. Whether or not Alabama votes this in is not going to stop people from going across to other states and gamble. I had rather our state got the money than some other state. Wake up people stop being so self righteous and telling other people how to live their lives. Who made yall over everyone else.

I say let the people decide, but first and foremost inform them of of what they are voting on. Quit lying and misleading the voters, and tell the truth. If passed, there will be seven counties who will be able to have bingo hall's and I do not think that is fair. I also do not agree with the state outlawing church's from being able to hold raffles which if passed this bill will do. So before voting on an issue inform yourself or don't vote, or you may end up with something you do not like. Case in point Barrack Obama!
