    Can't like your chances in tribal court when the judge is named Stomping Justice.

    Original comedy not a strong suit.

    And if California splits into 3 separate states (which will be on the November ballot), then things can get interesting.

    Virtually zero chance. Even if the initiative passed, Congress must approve.

    Yup, it is just a scam vote for the liberal run state to get a real feel on what the folks across the state really think.

    That was hilarity at its finest. I believe it was called TOMAC, which stands for Taxpayers of Michigan Against Casinos.

    I remember when the group was being pressured to publish its donor list. They steadfastly refused for awhile until the Pokagons took them to court to force it. You can imagine the hubbub when it came out that Boyd Gaming was far-and-away the biggest contributor.

That would be a real fair trial (insert eye rolling emogie).
    You answered your own question before you even asked it.

    Because California...

    Keep in mind folks that this is a state that requires owners of parking garages to post signs at each entrance stating that gasoline contains substances known by the State to cause cancer in laboratory animals. Same with coffee now I believe.

    You cannot make this shit up....

    Good recall, it was TOMAC.

    [QUOTdE=Heim;5034946]I'd like to know what special interest groups keep opposing sports betting now pushing it to a vote. The assembly will pass the stupidest revenue generating laws, for example, new law restricting resident (interior) water use to 55 gallons per day. First offense 1k fine. So you can't do laundry & take a shower the same day. But they don't want a steady revenue flow from gamblers.[/QUOTE]

    Average voter only understands feel good politics..helping the poor. They dont see the connection of excessive taxation and regulation slowing the economy and increasing cost of living.
