I think it is so bad that the Attorney General of the State of Texas forced the Alabama Coushatta Tribe to close their Casino in East Texas. It is not bad enough that the white man stole 2 million acres of land that belonged to the tribe. The tribe needs help getting their Casino back open. Has anyone got any ideas?
I say " scalpum white man " who does not believe in freedom for all citizens ( or at least get them out of OUR Government )!!!!

It is ridiculous to keep Casinos out of Texas . Anyone who thinks they are " saving " poor folks and those " subject to addiction " is not living in the real world . All are simply being forced to use gasoline when there is really no need for such waste and are going to go wherever they must for their favorite passtime . Senior citizens have so little to look forward to and I have witnessed so much pure delight when they have the opportunity to spend a few moments away for their reality . It is a blessing for them as it is for many .
The real negative that I see lies in the manner in which gambling is regulated . It is criminal for players to be taken absolute advantage of as seems to be the case in Oklahoma where pay-out percentages are ABSURD !!! If gambling in Texas is to be used strictly for producing revenue without consideration for those who fund the entire industry then it should never be allowed . Players must have a FAIR gaming experience or there should be none !!!!
If properly run , gambling in Texas should greatly lower the obscene property tax burden being placed on the citizens of this State .
Don't blame the fact that there are currently no casinos in Texas on the " Bible Belters " . If you want to take a poll on these folks , you will have to go to Shreveport to find us !!!!!!
Thanks ,

It is estimated that Texans spend up to 10 billion dollars a year gambling in other states. This is a travesty. Supporters of Casino gambling are not forcing Texans and tourists from other places to gamble legally, but just giving the right to.I'm from San Antonio and we get about 42 million visitors a year(about the same as Las Vegas). Can you imagine the economic impact if we had casinos here? What's wrong with promoting tourism? I go to Louisiana often(as do thousands of other Texans).Wht can't we (and millions of others)spend our money in Texas? This is crazy.

I think that Casinos should be allowed in Texas because we already have the Lottery. Gambling is gambling, whether it's at a Casino or at the local corner store. But the big difference is, we could keep some of the estimated 10 million dollars a year in Texas. If it's ever put to a vote by all of the registered voters in Texas, I would vote yes, yes, yes!

The way it stands now you can go to Lake Charles, LA, or to Delta Downs near Starks, LA, or the Grand Casino Coushatta near Kinder, LA, and every other vehicle has a Texas license plate. In addition, these places run regular bus services to Houston and other metro areas in Texas with stops all along the way.
The Alabama Coushatta tribe on Hwy 190 between Livingston and Woodville would be a start. Then we open up a big one on I10 at Beaumont...Ford Park would be a good place or somewhere near Orange. Then there is always Pleasure Island in Port Arthur. Next is a big one up on I20 around Longview or Marshall.
LET'S KEEP THE MONEY IN TEXAS...PEOPLE ARE GOING TO GAMBLE...LIKE IT OR NOT.

i wish the texas leaders would keep thier religious beleives to thier self and quite cramming it down our throats.just because they think it is wrong does not mean that i need them to vote it down on my behalve.we have some idots in austin.they cant see the forest for the trees.they raise taxs instead of looking for other means such as the gambling answer. look we need to know who up there is voting gambling out,that way we can vote them out.it is so easy to raise taxes on us texans so they dont have to make a logical decision like voting for the casinos in texas.look the majority in texas want to be able to go to casinos on thier on decision, not some bible thumper who cant tell his inter feeling from the feeling of the people who put his incompetent butt in there in the first place. i dont need someone like that take my right as an american to vote away from me because it dont intertwine with his religious believes.if we dont stand up and demand our rights as an american we are surely going to fail to get this passed at any voting period because they think we are children that they know best for us.i say for them to kiss my you know what and let me vote.

Last week there was a very good artical they wrote about the gathering of must of the Race track owners and their executives with four Texas indian tribes invited. From the artical its looking better for a chance to get a vote on the floor of the up coming legislature for and up or down vote to get a ballot before the Texas people to vote on. There is a lot of moevment going on in the buying of property designated for casinos when this happens. Seems the two cities that have the jump on being ready so far is Galveston and South padre Island. Lets get behind and push for this vote to happen

Texas needs to build some casinos. The lottery and bingo we already have is gambling.
And there's illegal gambling too.

I am the Texas ambassador for the paragon casino resort in Marksville LA 126 miles south of Shrevport on I-49. There is no better place to see even in Vegas than this Hotel casino resort and a beautiful Golf course. It is owned by the Tunica-Biloxi Tribe who have a large reservation there. They are a proud people who are very friendly. They have a state of the Art Hotel with a bayou in the Entrance yes it has alligators in it. Very safe to see. The Vice Presadent of Marketing is avery awesome Man. He has his hand on the business and his first thought is the Customer. Oh yes he wants you to win and have a great time at the Mighty Pearl of LA. Trust Me try it for yourself, I,m sure you will go back time and time again.
