I love casinos but have no desire to gamble online.

Still I've seen gambling ruin people's life and can't help but believe internet gambling would take this destructive potential to the nth.

I don't gamble on line for I have my own machines and when I run out of money I open the machine, take my coins back, and start over again. ; )

You are 100% right! My husband has a lifelong friend who unfortunately loves to gamble. It is a really big problem with him. He goes down to Atlantic City, bets with bookies, and of course, gambles on the Internet. Well he did until he had all of his credit cards overdrawn and his bank account overdrawn as well. Which honestly he probably accomplished in about one night. Online gambling is absolutely ridiculous, there are so many sites that allow you to bet on all the sports event, play poker, Texas hold em', black jack, you name it, you can place a wager on it! It's a sin! We don't gamble in my home. My husband works to hard for his money. And I watch his idiot friend get himself in too much trouble loosing all the money he doesn't even have gambling his!
