Scott, Scott, Scott, Mikey and Johnny think big casinos are small business'. They make less than $800million a year, making them small business in the Teabagger eyes.

He should be regulating the big casino's that are making millions every week in Ohio. Gambling is suppose to be a game of chance, which it once was. Today with all the technology advances in electronics, the game of chance is gone. Operators can regulate the machines using electronics, to insure they are making money. I use to hear all the time, that the state told Mountaineer Casino to loosen up it's machine's. Which was just a farce to get people to go there an lose their money. With all the money wagered everyday at casino's, how often do you hear of someone winning big time. Our lottery system is the same way. Originally our school system was suppose to get 30% of the profits, today it's about 10%. Making money is the name of the game, if you gamble your just throwing your money away. The only one making the big money is the owners.

we need to eliminate the local mini gambling parlor. so that the gambling industry can have no competition. they spend big money. and are supervised. so no cheating goes on and you have a small chance to win where as the mini gambling parlor has no controls to run an HONEST game. now the casino's are taxed and a share of the profits are returned to the state, while the mini's are able to Cheat the public and the state out of their money.

This is what you get for being a dedicated Republican, unless you clear $250,000/yr you got what you deserve.

Great letter, Scott. You drive the points home quite well and your tongue and cheek humor is a bonus.

Mom and Pop don't make big money campaign contributions. All politicians are beholden to big business. Banks, car companies, and now the industry at the forefront of the news, Insurance Companies. ACA. Biggest corporate giveaway in the history of corporate giveaways.
