Don’t go to casino

There are mounting concerns that the upcoming Spokane Tribe casino in Airway Heights will have many negative impacts upon the surrounding community.

It might divert customers from Spokane businesses, and customers will be forced to spend their hard-earned food and rent money on gambling. And there may be Fairchild Air Force Base encroachment problems.

This is just to name a few. The fact still remains that the Spokane Tribe has the right, and will build anywhere they choose since it’s on their own land.

You cannot stop progress.

I have some easy solutions to these mounting concerns. When the casino is built, don’t use any of its facilities. Don’t apply for any of the job offers, and continue to use the Spokane-area businesses. I assure you that without customer support, the casino will go out of business.

Do yourself a favor, save a penny and double it every day for six months. Gambling at any casino has always been a game of chance, but your easily saved pennies will make you wealthy.

If you think that saving pennies is hard to do, just think about the diminishing returns at any casino in the nation.

However, if you cannot afford to gamble, don’t.
