Gee whiz, sounds like we won't be seeing any property tax relief here in PA any time soon. And yet, our dear guv'nor, Fat Eddie, promised us that we would. He wouldn't have lied to us, would he?

So basically Bill, you hate the Casino industry because it requires its patrons to take some level of personal responsibility?

Nobody is forcing these people to drink that free drink or get into their cars while drunk. Nor is the Casino holding a gun to their head while the player inserts money into the slot machines or pisses it away on the roulette wheel.

The Casino industry is like everyone else in the world. They use "feel good" marketing tactics in order to get people to spend money. Wal-Mart does it. Target does it. TV & Radio stations do it. Every company that advertises a product does it.

I think it's high time we start pushing personal accountability, instead of finger pointing others.

Shut up Darryl and head over to Mt Airy if you think Gambling is so cool.

Marketing tactics ? You get nothing to show for it and its not called spending. You're being duped into thinking Gambling will bring property tax relief ? Only if there are enough suckers to think this in some way is a form of spending money . As we said all along , after the crooked bums get their cut there won't be a property tax relief.
