More Sleight of Hand

As reported in the Providence Journal this morning, the relentless casino promoters are still pushing their scam with bogus poll results supposedly showing support for this license to steal. The good news is that they have to spin the results like crazy to make it look good. In reality, most people seems to know that the power brokers at the General Assembly are up to no good and only the gullible seem to support them. In the poll there was no mention of Harrahs backing in the plan and no acknowledgement of the undercutting of the other two betting parlors currently ripping off the naive patrons. They push the 'tax-relief' issue, but only the hopelessly dumb could possibly believe that they won't shuffle the money and spend even more so that the net relief is zero. C'mon this is Rhode Island.
