The casino boom steamrollers on unabated

(http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4299582.stm)

Like in many American states, the UK government's gotten addicted to gambling taxes no matter the social and economic consequences for gamblers, gamblers' families and the community.

There's an upside for Israel in the Intifada. The fighting destroyed the casino in Jericho which Israelis heavily patronized. Casino gambling is illegal inside Israel proper.

To the greatest extent possible a Klein Administration would curtail the expansion of casino gambling, and try to invoke WTO national security and health exemptions to block overseas internet casinos from doing business in the United States. It is currently illegal for domestic companies to conduct online gambling.
