    We all like a good gamble every now and then, who's to say they truly did anything wrong? I bet lots of white people are doing the same thing. Should we deport them too?

    While some may say they can afford throwing away their money, I'm guessing their wife's viewpoint may differ. Gambling is gambling. Either build a REAL casino or shut the Internet cafes down!

    I agree with the people who wonder how all these people from poorcountries can come over here and take over all the 7-11 stores and Motels across the country any motel in the U.S. You stop at is run by a family named Patel. They get Govt. backed loans with low interest no credit required something not even a disabled veteran can not get.Than when the note comes due after 7 years They simply pass it on to a family member for another 7 years new govt loan same story Blame your Govt. and Banks for this.

    Tom my friends and I often meet at the Internet cafe for relaxation we are educated and pay our bills and taxes It is a hobby nothing more than playing Bingo to us. So don't try to lump all of us who find these cafes entertaining and a social outlet as some kind of desperate person using the utility money for gambling the majority of people I have met at the Internet cafe I frequent do not fit this mold at all. Could you be one of those self rightous people who won't be seen in such local places but will with great joy visit Biloxi or Los Vegas where no one knows you?

    And send that NY mayor Bloomberg with them. He's behind building that mosque on "ground zero." Can you believe it?

    Why are our children being killed (they don't let you see the body bags come back) -- so women don't have to wear burkas....when they wear them in the US? And we can't search them because it's their regligious right?!!! Send them all back to the middle east until they start paying their bill. Like for instance the Desert Storm war that Cheney said would be paid by them, for starters. Send them all back and don't let any more in.

    I can't believe the Veterans would be associated with internet cafes. It blows me away. You can have anybody doing anything on those computers and there is no tracking them. Can you spell SEXPERVERTS? You should think twice before you become associated with even going in one.
