Apparently, the Blue Mass site is the home of anti-casino kooks. The legislature has been blocking Indian gaming for years because they wouldn't be able to control it and put their relatives into jobs - the Indians are independent. If there's nothing in it for me, it's not happening. If you don't think so, go through the list of $70,000 per year toll takers on the Mass Pike. Say it out loud to yourself - seventy thousand dollars per year, with state health insurance and pension, to make change, just like a Wal-Mart cash register clerk.

It needs small business to help with universal healthcare, innovation, and increased consumer options. It needs to simply okay the casinos. It needs to invest in small business.
