    I'm not here to defend any politicians, but this is typical of sports teams and plenty of other large businesses. You see it everywhere, but it's usually a large company promising jobs in exchange for tax incentives. The politicians then claim that they created jobs. Anyway, sports teams are always trying to get governments to buy stadiums. It pretty much amounts to a subsidy for sports fans at the expense of anything else taxes would go for (or lower taxes for everyone.)

    And seriously... nobody is going to get riled up about having problems depositing to casinos. (Too many other things don't excite people, either.) Nobody will repeal those laws because they are paternalistic. (When has that ever happened?) Everyone will have to wait until the large financial interests step in. They'll still have a tough time. State lotteries see other gambling as a threat, and they should see it as a threat considering that their own payouts are dismal.

    Thumbs up

    Would Al Gore have signed anti-gambling legistlation? My guess is yes... but it woulda been attached to a "Greenhouse Gasses" bill.
    I watched his documentary the other night on Global Warming. Man this guy would have made a good U.S. president. Canada adopted the kyoto accord the U.S rejected it. If Al Gore was in charge he would have adopted it and added to it curbing the trend of Global Warming.

    I'm personally a fan of Al Gore. Nearly every nonamerican I have spoken to is the same way. It's funny how nearly every nonamerican also hates Bush.

    I'm not sure what relevance this has to the discussion but I figured I would throw it in.

    It's completely relevant ... Gore would have been a far better president

    and wouldn't have made America a joke to the world.

    I wanted to point out some incorrect statements:

    1) george bush has the most advanced degree of any president -Wrong. Woodrow Wilson was President of Princeton, a professor, presumably PhD, Jimmy Carter has masters in nuclear engineering, I'd argue a hard science MS, is more advances than MBA (which i'm about to seek, come sept)

    2) Maybe is more Advance than law degree? I don't think so, a 2 year MBA vs a 3 year law degree? I'd say a law degree and the amount of work involved makes it more advanced. Many presidents had/have law degrees, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Bush 1, Clinton(1 and possibly 2).

    3) Canada is following Kyoto. The last liberal government signed Kyoto, the new Conservative government is trying to squirm out: they say "the Liberals we're just shifting statistics to make it look like they were trying.

    4) I only own Scrub Shirts - Not true, I own a couple dozen scrubs, but also T-Shirts and a couple of suits!

    5) I can make Pot appear magically, like a genie. WRONG - I can make pot magically DISappear in a short period of time.

    Hope I've set everyone straight! LOL
