So iam at the mother-in-laws house tonight who i can't stand and i notice on her coffee table a recent piece of mail form Grand Casio Mille Lacs. On the back of this flyer are pictures of recent big money winners with their picture. I notice one of the pictures to be a popular Mille Lacs resort owner. This person hit on a high stake slot. To be tossing money like that at the tribe. Business must be booming.

Uhm,...interesting. Yeah I think that picture should be posted for all to see. If he just won a big jackpot he isn't going to be in need of any business anyhow.

remember gambling is an addiction and no one can be held accountable for what they do. even if they throw everything their family has worked hard to establish. very sad

metro 1 said it right, gambling is a addiction. "If you can't do the time, don't do the crime".

Yes gambling can be an addiction, but saying that they can't be held accountable to what they do is simply not true. Should we not prosecute drunk drivers who are addicted to alchohol if they kill someone? If someone is addicted to drugs, are they not responsible for what they do while under the influence? Or if they rob and steal to get more money for drugs?

Sad is right, but there is no excuse for becoming addicted in the first place, and having a problem doesn't absolve you from responsibility.

Problem gambler or not, you gotta wonder why a Mille Lacs resort owner would be in the casino.

And they call me a hypocrite. Its not fair to start judging the guy about a gambling addiction. And you can not blame him for becoming addicted if thats the case. Be careful what you say when you start getting into topics like this.

I'm not sure if your post was directed at me or not, but I was not judging wether or not the guy has a gambling addiction. I don't even know who it is.

But as far as any addicition of any sort, it never should absove a person of the actions taken as a result of that addicition. As a recovering addict myself, I can tell you that a person who is addicted to somehting can do some irrational things, but that person should ALWAYS be held responsible for his actions. After all, it is still a choice. AN addict at first made a choice to take the drink, do the drugs, gamble or whatever. Just because it got out of hand doesn't mean he's no longer responsible for that choice.

guys I was having a little fun and was just giving the P.C. answer . Of course a person is responsible for what they do and there shouldn't be any excuses. there should be help if wanted but never excuses. metro
