Is this guy serious? How could anyone try and justify the super rich wasting tens of millions of dollars on gambling? I like a punt more than most, but all of the problems in the world at the moment. I'm sure the people in the Pakistan would be really happy to hear that some big fat rich prick could of just rebuilt half of their country with what he lost at a table before lunch. Yeah he can do what he wants of course, but surely living in the society of the human race, it would be more enjoyable helping thousands of others rebuild there lives than having a night out down the pub? Bill Gates is a very rich man, and he donates hundreds of millions to help out his fellow humans. I'm not saying Kerry cant live a lavish life but that's crazy, at least if he built a golf course there would be a lot more jobs here in Australia. That money being pumped into the Australian economy is good, no one would argue that, and you said about paying for jobs at the casino, what a laugh, do you think any of the minimum wagers seen that, that money went straight to the fat cats. When are these right wing tossers going to see that make lots and lots of money is a lot less important than looking after each other?
