Run cruise ships up the Mississippi River and crash them into casinos.

Well, you're talking about an addiction for a fair number of those people, so like alcohol and drugs, the possible consequence of harm isn't an effective deterrent.

I'm surprised anyone is left in the South to gamble.  I thought it was just me and the other brave courageous souls who have been sitting on our couches and working from home for the last two months.  Everybody else is dead.  It's science.

They can't get upriver past the CCC in New Orleans, but otherwise an interesting idea.

Gamblers have always been known for their keen decision making skills and careful statistical work. I'm sure everything will be fine.

one of the cable news channels had a vegas casino guy on this morning. he was doing his best to be cheery and say were have procedures  but it was imho oh come on you are really going to use a disinfection steam vac on every slot machine seat after grandma who should be wearing diapers gets up and wipe down dice and keep people separated.
basically the plan is to have half as many table game seats and every other slot machine turned off and the seats for turned off games removed.
his claim they will be constantly wiping surfaces and telling people to distance is lol.

Or we could just let them die or have some self control. I drank heavy for 18 years. I'm 2+ years sober. It's cslled willpower.

I look forward to them meeting the fate of the rest of Missouri.

I'm starting to feel like the fiancée and I will be the only ones left in NC alive enough to vote by the time Election Day rolls around.

Not in Mississippi, there is still a state income tax.  They say they are a tourist draw, but they mainly siphon welfare and social security money out of the local's pockets.

Now that nearly every state has some place where you can go gamble, no casino besides Vegas (for the other stuff it offers) is a gambling draw.  People from Florida can gamble at dog tracks or on boats.  People in Atlanta can gamble in Alabama or the Cherokee reservation.  People in Louisiana can gamble in New Orleans.

It was a tourist draw for the period of time before there were options to gamble everywhere (see also Atlantic City).  Now it's just going to be another entertainment option for locals to spend money on.  It ceased to create any economic value.

I've played blackjack in many places, but Mississippi is the only place I've seen people consistently double down on a 12.

Seriously though, wishing a scornful death on these idiots will backfire.

Chances are the math is there for someone to know someone who knows someone who comes to your state that's flattened the curve.

We need REAL leadership in the White House.   And Congress.

On the plus side. You can max out your credit cards, and not have to worry about paying them back.

The main draw for the casinos in northern Mississippi are people from Memphis, most of whom really don't need to be gambling.  It's one thing to gamble with 'Vegas money', it's another to gamble with 'rent money'.

That's true, there is a state income tax here. I only said MY Mississippi state taxes are zero.

Don't worry.  The refugees from New York will repopulate the state by then.  Which is exactly what NC needs more of.  Need to switch that state solid blue so it begins voting the right way.

Mississippi has a state sales tax. As long as you're buying something there, you're paying Mississippi state tax.

That's also true. But it's pretty low compared to the surrounding states.
