Chapter 4

The gambling industry has successfully infiltrated society with an assortment of gambling businesses. Some of the most cunning, greedy and heartless people in the world are gambling business owners. Having these attributes has facilitated them in getting their sordid businesses to become part of mainstream society. The gambling industry is growing and getting stronger in society like a contagious, terminal virus. You can protect yourself and your children from this societal virus with knowledge. Knowledge is power. This book provides powerful knowledge to protect you and your children from this societal virus.

Do you wait until your children get crippled or killed by the polio virus before getting them a polio vaccination? Of course not! This book is a vaccination for your children against gambling. Your children should read this book before the gambling industry cripples or kills all of the inheritance money and assets given them. The gambling industry intentionally targets children to get them to be pro-gambling. How they do this is examined in other chapters. They want children to grow up believing that gambling is good. They want children eager to try out some gambling system or skill. They want children ready to place gambling bets when coming of gambling age. Gambling industry owners are licking their chops, like hyenas do after spotting a helpless newborn antelope, in anticipation of children growing up and becoming gamblers. The gambling industry owners want the inheritance money and assets of children to be gambled directly into their bank accounts.

You or people who you know may have already been infected with gambling polio. People can recover from this gambling polio but the money, relationships, business opportunities and other things squandered does leave some sort of crippling effect for life. Gambling industry owners must find satisfaction in the fact of having harmed or destroyed many millions of people. They must maliciously enjoy the challenge of influencing people into gambling and then controlling and conquering them. But gambling industry owners will not enjoy this book. They will not enjoy Gambling Facts and Fictions in the same way that the polio virus does not enjoy the Salk polio vaccine.

Do not allow any gamblers to give the impression of gambling being okay. It does not matter if you think that their gambling is moderate. They still have a gambling problem. Do not believe it when parents tell you that they enjoy going to the casino. Do not believe it when your sister tells you she plays the slots at the casino and overall breaks even. Do not believe it when your husband tells you about making money at the horse racetrack. Do not believe it when your wife tells you she does not lose that much money playing the lottery. Do not believe it when your son tells you that he is a sports handicapping genius, picking winners galore on the internet gambling website. Do not believe it when your neighbor tells you about a winning card counting system at blackjack. Do not believe it when your friend at work tells you about making money in the stock market by charting and trading stocks. Do not believe any stories about people making money gambling.
