Wake up Alabama!!! Your local politicians are wanting to outlaw gambeling and charity bingo. Somehow they have gotten it into their heads that this will be detrimental to the youth of today, will put our faith and religion into shambels, and will pose a problem with society.
Ok. So your saying that politicians and citizens of Alabama have never went to Mississippi and won (come on you Southern Baptist......don't be shy); your telling me that no one in Alabama has ever placed a bet on a sport in a office pool; your saying you and your friends have never sat around your home and placed a small wadger on a football game or the big fight of the year; you've never played yahtzee or told your husband/wife "I'll bet you the dishes or mowing the grass, or a shopping spree that you can't......" Guess what, all of this is a form of GAMBELING! Not only that but you people are missing the point. Do you understand that we are light years behind the states of ?Georiga, Misssissippi, Teenneessee, and Florida? Everyone of the southern states, But ALABAMA gambels, therefore they have more employment to offer, they have better school supplies and equipment to teach our children with, they have LAWS and unlike Alabama They ENFORCE THEM, and guess what they are not going to hell because they placed a simple bet on something as irrelevent as a game. Our citizens need employment and our schools need funding. The state's deficit is in shambles. You people want change but when a oppertunity for this is given you turn your snobby noses up and turn your cheek. Either you want change or you don't. The decision isn't hard.
