Does anyone else out there see the irony between our new license plates and the seemingly endless barrage of new gaming activity in Indiana?
Very boldly we proclaim on our new plates (which can be confused with Michigan's old plates) "in God we Trust". At the same time, I'm not sure there hasn't been an opportunity that this current administration hasn't taken that could possibly be gambled on. Between you and me, I understand bets are being taken on successful cow-tipping in Lagrange County-you can place bets at accesssomeoneelsesmoney.org.
OK-I don't believe in gambling-thought it was a mistake the Bayh administration made many years ago in establishing the state lottery-but it's been a republican administration to really push gaming to off-set shortages in funds. (seems like I remember someone saying we wouldn't be funding the state budget with gaming..................how times change). We NEED it to survive.
So I guess it isn't "In God we Trust" after all.........or maybe gambling's our insurance in case God doesn't come through. That's the trouble with mixing faith and politics, well, more on that later.
