    LOL.
    Then we could build a stadium to rival the Dallas palace.

    Is this the same guy who tried to push a casino bill last year.
    I am in support of it, I just don't see it going through.

    Re: Rep Tom Hackbarth releases stadium funding plan.

    This is a great idea. Put the lottery machines on every street corner in the state! Oh, and next to all the ATMs. And in restaurant bathroom stalls.


    I have had this huge concern that no matter how much the people in this state love the Vikes, no one wants to pay for it with a tax increase. It's tough to convince people to up their taxes no matter what, but it's almost impossible in this economy.

    I love this plan and I hope it pans out!

    Question - I didn't see too many numbers in the article - are there estimates about how much money the machines will bring in, how long it will take to fund the stadium, etc?

    Alright good news! At least someone in the Minnesota legislature cares about keeping the Vikes and building them a new stadium.

    Why is gambling wrong?

    Is it because of the addiction some people have for it?

    If that is the case then maybe we shouldnt be allowed to do anything that brings excitement to people.

    Perhaps Gambling is wrong to you and if it is I hope you dont ever buy any lottery tickets.

    I don't have a state rep or senator.

    I do have an MPP and Premier, but I doubt they could do a whole lot.
