Po-po-po-po-po-po-po-po-po-poker room

The zoning comittee is thinking of approving the application of a business to set up a poker room in Boardwalk. They say it's going to be mostly exclusive since there will be a fee to join. It's going to be a very recluse set-up which means no one will notice it's there except maybe for the sign.

I think this should not be considered an improvement to the city. You can consider the poker room as the "gateway drug" as this will be the door for other gambling establishments in the city. First we already have STL (Small Town Lottery) and Lotto. Poker Room is an gambling establishment. I hate to say this but is not a game of science where you study a person. A mahjong, tong its, lucky 9, player also does the same technique to win games and they are considered gambling and debilitating.

When the poker room is established, more things will come. Casinos can argue that they be allowed and other gambling establishments will be here before we know it.

I know its good for the government because of the taxes but c'mon. Since when did you care about the taxes that goes to the government. They can't even fix a single thing in the city. A small poker room will not make any miracles.

Watch out Iloilo! Your doom is here. Maybe I'll change my mind if Lady Gaga would make an appearance :)
