I don't know whether to laugh or be angry.

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">The idea is to keep terrorists from playing bingo or running a charitable game to raise large amounts of cash, Holiday said.</td>
Really? Really!? Are you frickin' kidding me? Cash to protect the numbers rackets? REALLY?!?!!!!!<br><br>
Yes this is what happens when you distribute homeland security money evenly and don't set up guidelines to make sure oh let's say firefighters and policemen can talk to each other.
You know, in the past five years, about every three months I get a call from a survey/poll place that asks me if I agree, disagree that terrorists use gambling to fund themselves. I always say disagree. Oh, and they also ask about the selling of drugs.<br><br>
Who thinks this stuff up?<br>
Throughout history, almost every 'terrorist' group has been funded by the United States of America. And, as far as I know, it has never happened through gambling or drug sales.<br>
It seems the people making money from selling drugs would not want to cause any rife with the U.S. as they would lose their biggest customer, right?<br><br>
And, if you look at gambling industries, only the owners make money. I read once that casinos have a 95% profit margin. It is for entertainment, not for earning money/getting rich, although there might be a few 'lucky' ones out there, while the majority are just paying the gambling industry to be rich.
