The Magic of Atlantic City

Is it not amusing to have a magical room, where the same type of activity is both encouraged and discouraged?  When you go to this same magical room and gamble, you are both complimented and arrested.  The magical room is none other than the Borgata Poker Room.  The magic governing the rules in the Poker Room are supra-rational.  It defies logic and common sense.

The case of the sports betting “bust” reveals the dark magic of NJ political activity.  Representative Sorceress, Anne Milgram, deplores the bad people who were sports gambling.  ‘How dare they gamble in a Poker Room?’ bellows Milgram.  

The principle at play in the Borgata Poker Room “bust” is ‘How dare you gamble and not give a percentage to the NJ government?’  The longer that we see the magical workings of state and local government the sooner we live under the principle, ‘How dare you even breath without giving a tribute to King Corzine and “All the King’s Horses and all the King’s Men.”

Here are two serious questions for you to ponder:

1) Are football and horse racing both sports?

2) Why can you gamble on horse racing, but not football, in an Atlantic City casino?

About Jesse O. Kurtz

I am committed to fulfilling the promise of Atlantic City. The town would benefit from greater political participation by average citizens. Hopefully, some of the posts herein will encourage you to get more involved in your community. This blog will also feature other topics and subjects beyond Atlantic City. I hope that you will come to love Atlantic City as much, or more than I do.

  1. Good points, especially when you consider that New Jersey was given a window to vote on sports betting and the Republicans in charge at that time prevented the referendum. In less than 2 years, Delaware will legalize sports betting and begin to attract many bettors who want to go to a state where common sense reigns. And NJ will have no way to counter this competition because NJ is prohibited from approving in by federal fiat (Delaware previously offered a sports betting lottery game and therefore was exempt from the federal ban). Makes me crazy….

  2. Sure horse racing is a sport! Now, I wouldn’t consider betting on horse races hoping for a good day of Profitable Punting to be one.
