    So, what is it going to take to get the horse industry up and running (pun intended) in Georgia? This should create a good bit of jobs, both on and off the track.

    Could it be the .gov, afraid it would put the state lottery at risk? Heck, I would think the potential rake from the casinos to the state would _save_ the Hope Scholarship, helping it expannd instead of contract.

    Excuse me but it’s my money and if I want to gamble here or Las Vegas or Macau, what business is that of yours?
    Talk about the nanny state.

    The difference is the politicians want to pick one winner in taxing the gambling industry – Education.

    What does education have in common with professional sports like the LA Dodgers, Texas Rangers and Chicago Cubs or many, many players ?
    You can’t throw enough money at them as they go bankrupt.

    No problem if property taxes for education go away and revenue moves into the domain of consumption taxes.
