Re: John in OK, -- Whenever the government proposes legalizing something, look to the tax money for the reason. -- SO WHAT? Should LABOR be forbidden because, after all, government taxes it? This is the most ridiculous of arguments against freedom I've seen so far: "Oh, the government wants it legal only because it wants to tax it!" Yes, AND???
America is a much freer place than it was a few decades ago, and one way you can tell is that changes once considered unthinkable now occur almost unnoticed. A case in point came when New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed a bill to legalize online gambling.

Atlantic City casinos, which now offer various games on site, will now be able to provide them to patrons at home or wherever else they have access to a computer. New Jerseyans will be able to play the slots without getting off the couch.

Doesn't sound like such a big deal, does it? But 40 years...
