WHY WOULD WE WANT RUIN A GREAT STATE? WHY WOULD WE WANT TO RUIN A BEAUTIFUL ISLAND?

Galveston has a hard time handling all the tourists we already get. The last thing that we need is a casino. But if they want to put it in Laredo - that's OK with me. (though Texas is better off without any casinos).

They have one in Eagle Pass, Texas - the Kickapoo Casino.

Yes, put it on the ballot and let the people decide.

The man behind the push for Texas casinos died today. There is very little chance of it making it through the legislature without that catalyst.

I have no opinion one way or the other on Casino gambling in Texas as I don’t gamble. I do know that the current Texas legislation will never allow this decision to be placed on the ballot, as the evangelical leaders in Texas see casino spending (gambling) by Texans as competition to their own weekly donations. They will say they object to casino gambling because they see it as anti-family, but what they really know is that there is only so much family disposable income, and they want there share of it.
