Com Is a great siteA google version of the Bible Reply Truth Giant says: February 26, 2018 at 10:57 pm Megyn Kelly is a hatemonger, racist, and flat out liar. During her tenure at fox, aka state TV, she spent her days spreading hate across the American airwaves that have embedded itself into this nation like a growing cancer. Megyn helped spread that cancer. Inciting hundreds, if not thousands, of unreported assaults and possible murders committed by her fox news fans whipped into a frenzy after viewing one of her dog whistle hate segments. There is no room in our civilized democratic society for someone like her. BOYCOTT NBC MORNING SHOWS!!!!! Reply Mike Btrfld says: February 27, 2018 at 12:18 am Drove a taxi in Reno for 18 years. Seen them jump off parking garages, jump in front of trains, sell off homes and businesses. I have the problem too. Reply Carol Benson says: February 27, 2018 at 1:03 am Thank you again Megyn. Your shows are extremely informative and enlightening. Gambling is very easy to get addicted to.

I know, i know, you want the story telling to be more dramatic / intense but it should not be louder than the story teller's voice.

Reply Doug L says: February 21, 2019 at 8:21 am I broke my gambling addiction by buying silver bars in Ebay. I am so focused on buying more and that’s where my money goes now.,I lost over $2 million in 30 years in casinos. A nightmare. Now I hoard silver and in my free time I work out. Reply Doug L says: February 21, 2019 at 8:25 am First time I ever went in a casino I walked out $2500.00 ahead. That was the hook. Once I won a $6000 jackpot and 5 hours later they got every penny back plus $600 more. It’s a terrible feeling. Plus the nasty smoking and smells and depressed looking losers.

Taking the chance that the branch won't break and we'll get the nice juicy piece of fruit . Casinos & our government ( addicted to the revenue ) calling gambling Gaming sounds so nice doesn't it . Beware of the slippery slope . That is all I have to say . Reply rolback says: April 17, 2019 at 4:15 pm We are told by our politicians that gambling creates jobs. A big fat Lie! The money that is sucked out if the community is money that would have created real jobs and real value. Value meaning food, shelter, clothing, retirement money, repairs for ones house or car, education for a child and the list goes on and on… Reply Tad&Lottie says: April 20, 2019 at 10:58 am But ….. you have to go play your freeplay and get your free buffet, oh and don't forget to swipe your players card to see if you won any perks .. oh and each week this month you have to go and collect your free cookware set being given away 1-pc each week … oh and that major jackpot is ready to hit–BEING SARCASTIC– DON'T GO TO THE CASINO, DON'T EVER START ..
