There is a push taking place in many parts of our nation to expand gambling. Knowing what is being sold is a way to enrich the owners of the casinos and to create a class of people who become addicted to the promise of hitting the jackpot and becoming rich, it is necessary to change the image of gambling. In order to promote gambling, it must be turned into just a game; so therefore, it is now being called gaming.
To assure the credibility of gambling, it must be linked with the government and some government entitlement; therefore, government boards are appointed to oversee the process. We all know how well the government looks after the citizens when they have oversight of the taxpayer’s money. (GSA gone wild at taxpayer’s expense)
