you know ... in my city poker machine revenue is highest in the western and south western suburbs which is basically low to middle (at best) income earners ... it's at the lowest in the eastern suburbs which are basically the high income earners ... why is that? why do poorer people gamble their money away for quick fixes and spend it on other things other than their family? food, rent, baby essentials, school essentials should ALWAYS prioritise over anything yet too many people today gamble their money or waste it on beer or drugs and they struggle for rent and get into mad debt and shit ... i don't understand

my parents only ever had enough money to put food on the table and rent that was it ... i was pretty lucky my parents didnt drink and well atleast grew their own weed so they werent after the dope man but fuck i just dont understand it ... whats wrong with society ? }:T

yea its true innit. li guess its because poorer ppl think more short-term. like they thinking about what we gonna eat today or 2morrow. while the richer folks dnt have that problem. Gambling is a way to sort out the poor persons short term problems. ofcourse theres the risk that goes with gambling, the fact that you rarely win.

ignorance i say.

and the government knows this and plays on it cos they knew poor people will come back and back ...

but if they just kept their shit together and saved theyd be in less financial strife than when they play ... its fuckin sad to see all these big clubs with hundreds of pokies in areas where low income earners are majority

i got a friend, the guys part owner of a liquor store with my brother. my bro tells me watever money the guy makes he would go into the betting shop next door bet all the money, come back and ask for a loan off my brother. dudes a lowlife, i have never seen such a waste. if he saved up he can buy a couple houses and shit.

ppl just aint patient. alot of ppl strive to get rich quick. when in reality that aint happenin unless you win the lottery. your right it doesnt help if the government pushes this shit in ppls faces.
