I think that riley should just sit back and wait till his term is over, go home and have a nice life. I don't think that he should be trying to make everyone lose a job and have to depend on the state to support then and he should not want that for the people of the state of Alabama. If you look at this they say that quote " Alabama voters overwhelmingly rejected a lottery in 1999" end quote. If we would have voted for the lottery in 1999 then maybe we would not be in this mess now. We tend to have too many rightous religious people that always think that someone is going to hell or something if they gamble or do anything wrong. The only one who can judge that is our lord and savior. The religious hipocrites in this state should just mind their own business and let this state start begin to prosper. If we would have voted for the lottery and if we are able to get the bingos back this this would be great revenue for this state and many the unemployement rate would not have to soar, the schools would be better for our children to be able to learn and prosper in life and we as a people might be able to have hope for a bright future in Alabama and not want to flee this state. IN JESUS NAME AMEN.

The whole state is in the grips of a 2,000 year old religious cult that has no clue.
