I saw this on Radley Balko's site. I hope you can't read the fine print at the very bottom of the advertisement, the obligatory "this ad paid for by.....".
But first, try to guess who paid for it ! Doesn't it look like something designed by a group of concerned citizens?
Ok, think "Bootleggers Dressed As Baptists"
You can hit the label at the bottom of this post to see more "Bootleggers And Baptists" stuff.
Ok, go here to see who paid for the ad.
It wasn't a "Parents Concerned About Kids Gambling Online" group, was it?
It almost never is.
The Indian Casino monopoly opposes online gambling. Memphis, Tennessee wine shops oppose grocery store wine sales. California's recent failed marijuana legalization proposition was opposed by almost all marijuana growers. The funny thing is the way they all try to posture as guardians of our virtue, when all they're doing is blocking potential competitors.
Big Bidness loves a monopoly. And the only way they can have it long-term is if the government helps them preserve it.
