Amid the nationwide Election Day madness this week, THE state of Ohio passed a referendum that would allow the state to build casinos in its four largest cities. The gaming stocks love it, and the people of Ohio love it (the majority, anyway), but do you know who doesn’t love it? Mothers. They’re not content to ruin the lives of their own children. No, they have to make EVERYBODY miserable. Why should I be allowed to vote to overturn ridiculous laws that prevent me from doing what I want to do? Apparently because I’d be killing families, as this gratuitous ad seems to indicate. But I have no issue with that, either. That’s just less traffic between me and the blackjack table. –Ramblings of the Unmotivated.
