Poker in front

Seems a Tennessee Senator is wanting to liberalize our liquor laws and wants to allow gambling establishments. I’m all for it. There’s likely a lot of Tennessee dollars that go to casinos in Tunica and to the casino at Cherokee, NC.

Says Braisted:

Legalize it, regulate it, and tax it…the liberal philospy(sic) of life

Actually, I thought it was If you can’t tax it or ban it, fuck it up to the point where no one wants it anyway.

    [G]overnment’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

    -President Reagan

    Subsidize it or marginalize it under the guise of a “moral panic”.

    I’d love to see gambling legalized and liquor laws liberalized, but it isn’t likely to happen. The religious righties have far too much power.

    From what I hear, it’s not the fundies stopping Liquor liberalisation, it’s Tom Hensley.

    What is it with you and the (sic)?

    Is it motivated by a wish to quote accurately or is it motivated by a wish to show people up? I mean you have several alternatives. You could email them. You could fix it yourself. Or you could just leave it as is. I’m sure I’ve done what you do as a matter of routine but, when I do it, I am consciously trying to be a prick.

    Are you?

    Err, because (sic) is what you do? If my spell checker picks it up, I (sic) it. I’ve even (sic)ed myself.

    Not trying to be (sic) prick. Just what I do.
