How to get casinos banned or closed ?? I see lots of my close friends who are highly successful in life fall prey to casinos and lose all their income and wealth and lead poor and pathetic lives. Their salaries are in 200k. But what is the use when they are living pathetic lives. I feel sorry for the wife and kids. This is in usa. My kids don’t even stop tv unless I hide the remote. So I can say the only way to stop This addiction is to close the casinos themselves just like hiding the remote and shutting out the tv.
