Government Taking My Job!?

So i worked at one of these Internet cafe stores around Central Florida. In a sense what my store was doing was „gambling” but it was under the cover through phone cards and „sweepstakes Games” and instead of Cashing out you redeemed money back. Which in turn is the same thing just called something different. Well I been looking for a job 6 months, single mother 2 kids, no house, llsing my car, and finally these people offer me a job, 2 weeks later, my store gets supposively „raidied” and shut down. The media played me out to be a criminal. When i got the job I signed a Government W4 official document, the state allowed to take taxes out of my job which they deemed was Illegal. I ask you how is my store any different from the „legal” Horse races (OBS) or the Dog Track Races, Or The „Jai-Alai’ we have here or any different from the Bingo. The State definition of a Slot Machine is:
any device that by insertion of money, coin or other object is caused to operate, and the operator by reason of any element of chance might receive or become entitled to anything of value.
Wouldn’t that Mean that The CRANE machine out front of Grocery Stores are Slot Machines as well?? I find this all ridiculous when in fact Marion County is highest in Florida for Job loss, (so lets take 100 jobs away) There are crack heads and robbing places and shooting folks, But now were concerned about some adult, mutually agreed-upon „gambling” I think its bogas.. like to hear your thoughts..

Gambling Is Proven To Be A Destructive Habit. Why Does The Government That Is Supposed To Care, Encourage It ?

A gambler thinks that by luck or chance combined with his manipulation of the material energy, he can win more wealth and thus enjoy more sense gratification. He thinks he can get something for nothing. He thinks, „I can beat the odds and win some new pleasure. I just have to hit the right number, pull the right card, spin the right digit.” In this way, he discounts the natural laws of God.
The term „chance” in gambling is a denial of God’s control and the law of karma. The gambler thinks that there is a loophole somewhere in the system or no system at all. He believes himself independent and thinks that there are no laws governing pleasure. He thinks he can abrogate the will of the Supreme.
The gambling industry takes advantage of people’s weaknesses. It preys on those who can afford it the least – persons with low incomes.
Well over a million compulsive gamblers live in America alone and the number is predicted to shortly rise over three million.? They used to build treatment centers for heroin addicts. Now they are building them for the compulsive gamblers.
The increase in gambling represents a decline in moral values and the work ethic. „Gambling’s get-rich-quick appeal appears to mock capitalism’s core values: Disciplined work habits, thrift, prudence, adherence to routine and the relationship between effort and reward,” concludes the Twentieth Century Fund, a New York research group, in a study of legalized betting.
Crime and cheating are often linked to gambling, especially in the form of bribery and game fixing.
Everyone gambles to win and may go to great lengths to win – even farther than most of us know.
Gambling breeds an attitude of contempt for human life. Example: In the intensive care unit of Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, employees were betting on how long critically ill patients would live. Some of the employees were overly anxious about their bets, and would tamper with the oxygen supplies or other life support systems of heavily wagered patients. One nurse in particular, who styled herself, „The angel of Death,” allegedly turned off equipment on at least six critically ill patients.
Compulsive gamblers can destroy their families and sometimes even end their lives with suicide. One expert’s description of compulsive gamblers: „They run into enormous financial difficulties borrowing or even stealing from others, including their families. Heavy debt is a constant fact of life for compulsive gamblers. They sleep poorly, and are indifferent towards eating and affection. They may drink a good deal, and they’re tense and irritable. They even consider suicide. But they always think about the next bet.”
Gambling can be a more powerful addiction than drugs.
Gambling cultivates greed, attachment, possessiveness, and an obsession with money.
Four Boston College basketball players have been sentenced to up to 20 years in prison for taking bribes to reduce their team’s score so that gamblers could beat the point spreads.
Baltimore Colts quarterback Art Schilchter went to the FBI after losing $389,000 to illegal bookmakers by betting on games.
A police report prompted the New York Times to editorialize that the casinos „are providing easy credit to gangsters and letting compulsive gamblers destroy themselves.”
Two officials of the Pennsylvania lottery were convicted of perjury and theft by injecting liquid weight into numbered table tennis balls so that only two of the 10 could be blown up to a plastic tube by a machine that selected the winning number.
One survey of police enforcement of gambling laws found that 80% of the police believe that profits from illegal gambling are used to finance other illegal activities such as loan-sharking and drug distribution. In half of the sample cities, local independent criminal organizations were said to control gambling operations.
Sports bookies are often cited as the main source of bribes to police, prosecutors, and local politicians. In his New Complete Guide to gambling, John Scarne reports: „No other form of illegal gambling .. enjoys such effective police and political protection as illegal bookmaking.” Police prosecutors reply that gambling has low priority because the public doesn’t consider it a serious offense and as few as 2 percent of police officer’s cases result in prosecution.

Has This Government Come Up With Yet Another New Stealth Tax?

All Winter the talk in Horseracing Circles has been about Rainbow View, the John Gosden trained favourite for today’s 1000 Guineas at Newmarket. Despite great reports about how well it had trained, and all the Pundits tipping it to such an extent that she started at 8/11, it lost!!!!
Since it was this government that changed the rules, are our leaders currently fixing Horseracing, thereby ensuring that some sort of revenue comes into their coffers direct from the mouths of the poor?
„Gordon Brown announced in his March Budget that by January 1, 2002, the current tax on betting stakes would be replaced with a tax on bookmakers’ gross profits, a radical reform which means Britain’s bookmakers will end the deductions they currently charge punters, and look to grow their domestic and international business from a UK base.”

Does it make any sense? Many Americans bash Islamic culture for their lack of freedom. However, at the same time the leaders of America are taking away all our freedoms.

Should The Government Take Away The Internet Privilege From Urban Cities Where Many Immoral People Live?

think about it, immoral urban cities residents are the ones keeping the filth on the internet alive. had it not been for those immoral people living in big cities, internet porn and gambling would have ceased to exist. not to mention that atheism would have been kept obscure and atheists would have stayed in their basements. the problem is that we as Christians try hard to navigate through this filth on the internet but every now and then one has to stumble on the disgusting things online. our children are being corrupted by this stuff.
just the other day our neighbor Judy—who is a God fearing Christian— was checking her e-mail when she clicked on the link a page containing beastiality popped up right in her face and her daughter was right there in the living room.
i think Urbanites should behave themselves and show some civility. why do we God fearing Christians have to deal with their immoral filth?!
