While education administrators in Scotland enact Sharia Law through guidelines telling students to not stare at Muslim students, a pit boss will stare you down no matter who you are. And the casino reserves the right to ask you to leave for any reason—and it doesn’t have to tell you what it is.
Just think of it! A pit boss says, “Sir, I’m afraid I’m going to have to ask you to leave.”
“What’s the problem?”
“I don’t like your face.”
“My face — or my race?!”
“Neither. Do I need to call security?”
What’s more, unions traditionally aren’t welcome in casinos either, the dealers spurning one attempt after another by union representatives to organize them (with the very recent exception of the Wynn Casino). With industry-blackmailing union thuggery kept at bay, if you have issues with the agreed-upon conditions of your employment, once again, you have the option to leave.
All these reasons that casinos should run the world are in addition to the long-known economy-boosting effect that casinos have on the areas they come to. Which means that the ultimate capitalistic enterprise is a more effective wealth redistributor than any system the socialists in Congress, Europe and Latin America have been able to come up with.

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
