    here’s a hint, anything called “truthPAC” isn’t going have any truth in it at all. i like how it says “see for yourself” but then they don’t link to the amendment for people to see for themselves…just to a pop-up with their lies.

    Watching ABC this morning I saw a pretty frightening “No On Issue 3” ad that warned of increased prostitution, crime, addiction, suicide, and even had Satan himself popping out of the screen at the end.

    I’m voting no on Issue 3, but this ad was RIDICULOUS.

    You’ll notice that in any pro-casino ads they will NEVER say 34,000 new jobs to Ohioans – and they mention “the economy” but never say “Ohio’s economy”. Basically, they use very, very general language to avoid being pinned down.

    One of these days someone is going to have to explain this argument to me.

    So are you saying that some of those 34,000 jobs will be hiring people from out of state to move here, become residents, possibly buy homes, contribute to the local economy, and pay Ohio taxes?

    Yeah, that sounds AWFUL!

    34,000 jobs is gross, not net. The studies show that job losses in other categories will be significant. Also, half of those 34,000 jobs are temporary construction jobs, which will be gone in less than two years. If you’re worried about jobs in Ohio, this is a terrible initiative to vote for.

    Has anyone been to the casinos in nearby states? I remember being in casinos in Puerto Rico and they were nothing like the image you see in movies and on TV. You may find, after seeing what these places are really like, that you don’t want them near you.

    I take my mom to the one in WV near Charleston about every other month–she’s a freak for slot machines. It started a number of years ago as a greyhound race track and later added slots and more recently, table games. It’s not what I expected, but it’s not that bad. It is likely the noisiest enclosed space I willingly enter, but with the smoking ban, it’s tolerable. There are buses of folks from OH and other parts of the state who come there. There has been a pretty significant amount of development around the casino in the last three years (hotels, wal-marts, fast food).

    It’s WV, so I can not imagine there would be any interest in developing any of that without something to “anchor” it. The people who work there are happy they are able to continue to live in their home communities, something not likely without the casino. It’s quite pretty outside (and quiet) so me and my books can be parked for a few hours without complaint.

    Again…you’re not showing me where people are losing jobs. Just saying they will isn’t actually an argument. So some are temporary? OK. Some are employment shifts? OK. Some are out of town workers being transplanted? OK.

    Who is losing their job though?

    Has anyone seen the latest ads? The one where they “show” that casinos will lead to an upsurge in prostitution, drug use, etc.?

    I’m just saying. That video is hilarious. With the flames in the background and the slo-mo prostitute clips. It looks post-apocolyptic & as if it were filmed in the 80s.

    Yeah! That’s the same one I saw. It’s so over-the-top, hellfire and brimstone nonsense. I wish I could find a link to it online.

    I bet they could get Kirk Cameron pretty cheap for their next ad.

    I haven’t seen it, but it sounds fun.

    Does this mean we can expect undocumented workers to show up in the Short North on gallery hop trying to pass out Stripper cards to drum up business for some of those new Ohio jobs.

    I just saw that horrible ad. Really, really horrible. I hope it doesn’t drive more people to vote yes on 3. (If it issue wasn’t so blatantly ridiculous, it might have changed my vote). Don’t expect to sway me by insulting my intelligence. BTW, I’m not real impressed with the pro 3 ads either.
