Making $$ In Hawaii!!

HOW ABOUT A WAKEUP CALL FOR THE PEOPLE OF HAWAII!!!

Our legislators are out to raise our Taxes on EVERYTHING WE TOUCH!!
The ONE obvious thing they keep missing is the benefit of Gambling!
Are there reasons NOT to promote Gambling? Of course! All things that should be addressed before it’s final approval! The fact is that it should be seriously looked into!

Our legislators along with our fantastic (said with complete sarcasm) Hippie Governor, are so willing to legalize Pot for added revenue, why the problem with Gambling? What long term studies have our legislators got backing them up when they say that POT is not harmful yet they want to legalize this.

They want to raise your Taxes, something that effects every man, woman and child in Hawaii, yet they have no problem with millions of our “Hawaiian Dollars” make the trip to Vegas every year!! Where is their outrage at this? Even a State Lottery would bring in Millions that COULD be earmarked for worthwhile projects including but not limited to schools!

Below are statistics that our legislators don’t want the public to see, numbers that make us all realize what OTHER STATES are making by legalizing any or ALL types of gambling in our State.

According to the American Gaming Association, legal gambling revenues for JUST 2007 were as follows:[1]
Card Rooms – $1.18 billion
Commercial Casinos – $34.41 billion
Charitable Games and Bingo – $2.22 billion
Indian Casinos – $26.02 billion
Legal Bookmaking – $168.8 million
Lotteries – $24.78 billion
Pari-mutuel Wagering – $3.50 billion

Grand Total – $92.27 billion

Do an internet search and you will find cases for and against gambling, same as you will find them for and against POT! Any avenue you take is to be met with caution. Same goes for RAISING TAXES!!

ASK QUESTION, MAKE YOUR LEGISLATORS AND THE GOVERNOR REALIZE YOU CAN THINK FOR YOURSELVES AND ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS HERE.
