    And "the wages of sin are death."  In this case the financial death of those who thought they could get rich quick on high-stakes gambling.   They should have stuck to poker.  But tough shit for them: let them fall and then rebuild without them.  

    "Minus one vote for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.

      at least it seems as though they have their gambling game rigged that way.  You know, privatize the profits, socialize the losses......

      would love to just take the attitude that they can go down the crapper... but I am afraid of all the innocent people who would go down with them?

        Better to pull the plug on them and get it over with.

        As in, if you eat rotten food you can either puke it up and get it over with, or suffer food poisoning for days.
