I do not use the services of this type of entertainment myself. However there is a term that is beginning to surface in discussions on legislation. The term is "Nanny Government". Here we are trying to find job creation which I guess it does. But the government wants to curb evidently the vice of gambling? Most individuals know that from bingo to live run games of chance the odds are in the favor of the house. So a rational decision must be made to stay (away) or play. Also, this entertainment can be costly, is that correct? Yes. So is soliciting to the internet. You have a choice. Choose to use it or do not have it. As a sidebar. There are gambling sites available on the internet not giving coupons but money! Choose or lo loose. If these places are not wanted they will close and begone and no legislation is needed!

One little tidbit. If these establishments are operating illicit business directly or allowing it to go on. This is where government steps in. Makes arrests, creates trial situations, implements fines, and even possible incarcerations. So make the the laws ease to follow and have teeth to discourage pushing the envelop so to speak. Not just these types of businesses either.

One has to ask one's self the following question: What will be the next "legal business" the government deems unfit and subsequently outlaws? This is a slippery slope we have embarked upon, everyone is at risk.

Only if they ban the Florida Lottery. Independent polls have shown that the majority of people who play the Florida lottery games regurlary are those who can afford it the least.

My understanding is this was related to the illegal activities associated with a "veterans" charity that was a farce. Can't use veterans as a smoke screen for making money, find another route to run the arcades being suggested.
