OK, who will start "Gambling Liberally"?

Delawareonline.com: Governor Jack Markell signed legislation legalizing table games into law Thursday, setting up an implementation process that should have patrons playing with real cards and dice in as little as four months.

I am really excited about this. I am not a SLOTS player at all – I find them rather boring. I also never quite understood why we had casinos in this State but that Slots was all they had. What would be the difference if you added Poker or Blackjack – or any other table game? Dover Downs already sports a fake roulette table – I’d rather have a dealer then a screen and it ads jobs as well. I love not only playing but also watching Blackjack and Poker. While I won’t be able to play for financial reasons, knowing that I can without driving to Atlantic City is awesome!

AActually, to be honest, what bothered me was not so much there we only had slots, but that you couldn’t even pay with CASH at Dover Downs – getting all those quarters if you win and putting them into the machine is half the fun!

Your story and the stories of our fellow Delawareans must be heard in 2010. Congress has voted on important measures, including financial regulation, economic stimulus and health care. These votes have affected you and me, our families, friends and co-workers.

Please help highlight the impact these votes have had and will have on our lives — Tell us your story.

  • Have you been impacted by the financial and economic crisis of the past 2 years?
  • Have you experienced a foreclosure on a home or seen savings & investments evaporate?
  • Have you been employed on a project funded by stimulus funds?
  • Are you frustrated with the GOP’s “Say-No” attitude that is preventing your recovery from the current crisis?

If you answered, “yes” to any of these questions, please click here and describe your situation.

Your story is important to us because the future of Delaware will be affected by outcome of the election in November. We can continue making progress on the issues that are critical to the future of Delaware or we can sit back and watch as Republicans vote against our state’s interests.

All across our state, lives have been or will be affected by decisions made in Washington. If you know someone who may have a story about these effects, please ask them to share their story with us by clicking below:
