The Colbert Report (link to a blog discussing this report is located immediately above) focused on Bald Knob preacher Larry Johnson's successful campaign to shut down senior citizen bingo games. Review the video from the Cobert Report embedded in the blog. It is worth the view time!
I have to ask who was saved from what? It would be almost funny if I did not see some comparisons to the current campaign to shut down certain elements here in our own little town of Palmetto Bay. Ask yourself, could this happen in Palmetto Bay under current leadership?
The successful campaign to shut down senior citizen bingo games was based, in part, upon the belief that BINGO is a gateway crime that could lead to meth use, even sex. To me, this is classic scapegoating, bogyman politics.
PS: Sometimes you find something just too funny. Note the initial blog comment:
"The death rate among senior citizen bingo players is also much higher than the rest of the population." (actually, as someone pointed out to me, its "BINGO")
