    Bob looks like Richard Nixon with a mustache.

    Joe has just asked one of those question I asked all my life and never got a straight answer – even from stockbrokers and lawyers. Imponderable truth ?

    Ever get a casino to give you a bailout? It’s the size of the players and scale of the game.

    Gambling is more honest, you can know the odds of getting a Royal Flush, rolling a seven, hitting blackjack, etc. Wall street is full of people who have information they want to make sure nobody else has.

    Simple When you run out of money casino’s kick you out. The Stock market will let you extend credit and go in negative.

    So does Congress. That’s why the CBS program “60 Minutes” did an expose, and moves to ban insider stock trading by members of Congress have been made. Lotsa luck with that actually going through!

    I hope their mother doesn’t find out they’re visiting another bar!
    Don’t they know she needs their business?

    Why is gambling illegal, while drinking alcohol is? I don’t know, but in Vegas they do a lot of both.

    Gamblers don’t own a portion of the casino.

    Unfortunately, I will never be a high-risk speculator in the Stock Market.

    Somehow I can’t imagine me calling my broker and saying, "I’ve got $17.23. Let’s Speculate!

    It’s because they can’t easily tax your winnings when you gamble (unless you’re in a casino or play the lottery), but will tax the hell out of your capital gains in the market.

    Remember: The government must get “their” cut through taxation — whenever money changes hands, either coming or going.

    Now you know why the “Taxed Enough Already” (TEA) party has grown its membership. The wage-earners in America have had it with taxation.

    .

    Right! I’ve had it with taxation.

    And Police and Fire Departments. And roads and bridges. And public schools.

    And I’ve had it with the Armed Forces, unemployment insurance, housing assistance, clean air and water, disaster relief, and financial aid.

    My fed up with list goes on and on.

    Where do I sign up for that party you’re talking about?
