ILLINOIS TRUCK STOPS WILL SOON INCLUDE MINI-CASINOS

truck-stopHere’s an article describing a new law passed in Illinois that will allow truck stops to include mini-casinos.  This is an attempt to obviously raise state revenues.  My question is, are they targeting truck drivers?  Do they see you as a potential revenue source.  Are truckers bigger gamblers than the average person?  Illinois doesn’t want to allow land based casinos.  They just want to put the mini-casinos in bars and truck stops.  I’m going to open a poll to see if you approve or not.

    They didnt give you anything! By installing a mini casino in a truck stop is just another way of taking the drivers money,it’s the same old story the driver gets stuck in a truck stop for a few days and spends $100 on slot machines and in the morning he is selling his c.b. for $50 so he can eat. In the 70’s it was pinball machines now it is slot machines. THE HOUSE ALWAYS WINS ! everyone has their hand out to take the drivers money so if you think the truck stop put in a mini casino JUST for your entertainment,think again
    just like a cup of coffee for $2.10
