I realize that gambling for some people is a terrible addiction. However, I am getting sick and tired of hearing all this bitching about a certain comercial, showing athletic programs, sponsored by a certain government run organization. It would be different if it were advertising gambling with minors in it, but it's not, it's just letting people know where some of the damn money is going. Also while I'm on it, a certain anti-gambling organization is bitching and whining about these comercials, while they sit with their thumbs up thier asses, munching down the fries and shakes while peeling back the chance to win tabs. You never hear them complaining about that or trying to get them to stop it. Even though they directly advertise to children. Then there is a certain sandwich shop that has gaming pieces, from a game that is played by children and young adults, as if that's not gearing them towards gambling. Oh, did I mention that kids under 19 are allowed to purchase these items and redeem the prizes, even though you must be over 19 to claim any prizes from the government program. So were the fuck is this anti-gambling group now (peeling tabs at the local hamburger shop).
And then they fucken bitch about a certain comercial, that shows were some of the revenue is going, that encourages an active lifestyle and trying to get young people motivated. They would rather sit there and bitch and watch our rapidly growing obesity problem. Obviously, their message is getting thru loud and clear. YOU can be as fat and lazy as you want as long as you don't gamble. nice fucking message---get of your high fuckin horse already
