Casino gambling long term effects on America:
So called baby boomers are from about 42-56 years old. Their parents are about 61 to 85 years old. Sixty to eighty percent of the money being lost at the casinos comes from the baby boomers' parents -- millions and millions of dollars each day. Money that might have been for inheritance is being spent on gambling. In many cases the baby boomers will get no inheritance but instead help pay for their parents' existence in their later years. Many of them will be on welfare. (Do you agree or disagree?)
(I have said gambling is here to stay. We have to get used to it.)
Maybe not. If all the people who go to the casinos would follow my rules we could put them out of business in a short period of time.
"The only thing worse than dying is ... outliving your money."
Self-imposed destruction is the only term that seems to fit for what Sen. Dayton is bent upon. Senator Mark Dayton has again introduced a bill (SF 1252) on June 11 in the U.S. Senate to use our tax money to pay for marriage benefits for homosexual partners of federal employees.
Why would any thinking person purpose to take the foundation of society and purposely tear it apart? Does not this person recognize that these so-called "Domestic partner benefits" are being used to help destroy the family by granting marriage benefits to homosexual partners. Strong heterosexual marriages as God designed are essential for a healthy society. Redefining marriage will only serve to further weaken marriage and thus harm children.
This senator does not represent the people. He is seeking to force folks who fear God and do what is clearly morally right to spend their tax dollars in the support and promotion of that which God hates. Domestic partners would receive the benefits of marriage without the moral and legal responsibilities married couples do. Married couples have legal obligations to their spouses while domestic partners do not. We have an obligation to love those heading for the cliff of self destruction by not only not supporting their rebellion against God's design but by showing them the cross of Jesus who died that they might be saved. I urge all your readers to flood our Senators asking them to stand against this folly.
