    Sometimes I fantasize that the only organizations allowed to run commercial gambling........ would be public schools. That way gambling addicts could, at least, give back a little bit of the moneys they take from their families. Of course this would be a bad idea in reality. It...

    No Gambling For Me.....

    I hate losing and never win anyway; I'd rather give my money away to someone who needs it than to some unscrupulous person who has too much already and isn't appreciative or ethical in its final use.
