The House Always Wins

People who are suckers for gambling have the irrational belief that lotteries, casinos and similar enterprises dedicated to harvesting money from suckers and gambling addicts are in business for their health.  They aren’t.  They are designed and built to make money and they do so in prodigious quantities.  That means that their “generosity” is always ordered to making sure that no matter how big you might win, the bulk of people lose most of the time because the goal is for the rich masters of the game get richer.

I think of that as I look at the “generosity” of Bill and Melinda Gates, devoted to culling the herd of poor people and charitable giving to immense companies that treat their serfs like serfs.  Exxon, Walmart and McDonalds: Truly the Deserving Poor.
