Companies on the North Shore oppose casinos there

Mark Rauterkus is reporting that companies on the north shore are opposing casinos on the North Shore. This is great news for me, I don’t want to see any casinos there. There is a bike trail that I bike on allot, also I like going there for the 4th of July fireworks. And I don’t like the idea of the casinos there since it will attract crime, and I don’t want to get robbed by the guy that has a gambling addition that either needs more money for the next fix, or does not want to tell his wife he just lost that months rent.
Also I want to ask the city what are they going to do to protect people that have to live near, or pass by the crime magnets, aka the casinos. I hope we can stall the casinos until we can replace Ed Rendell as Governor, and get some one in the office that will put a stop to this madness.
Finally I wonder how many lives will be ruined by these. I will do my part to drive them out even after/if they come to Pittsburgh, I WILL NOT GO to them, I will not spend any money there, I will not go to business that support them, I will vote with my wallet by not letting them get my hard earned money.
Finally remember that gambling and lotto’s are just a tax on those that can not do math, or a tax on the stupid.
And don’t get me started on the ethical issues of gambling on how it is bad stewardship of ones money.

  1. There is still a North Shore proposal in the mix — but it is more by the West End Bridge. ??

    The South Side proposal hit the light of day recently with Franco Harris as a selling point too. ??

  2. Thanks for the update. I do need to contact you soon about other stuff.
