Supreme Court Votes 7-2 to Lift Prohibitions on Sports Betting outside of Nevada (Is legalized Frog Jump Wagering in Our Future?)

Washington, DC...Following is the first few paragraphs of the opinion of the U.S. Supreme Court. JUSTICE ALITO delivered the opinion of the Court. The State of New Jersey wants to legalize sports gambling at casinos and horseracing tracks, but a federal law, the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, generally makes it unlawful for a State to “authorize”sports gambling schemes. We must decide whether this provision is compatible with the system of “dual sovereignty” embodied in the Constitution. Americans have never been of one mind about gambling, and attitudes have swung back and forth. By the end of the 19th century, gambling was largely banned throughout the country, but beginning in the 1920s and 1930s, laws prohibiting gambling were gradually loosened.

New Jersey’s experience is illustrative. In 1897, New Jersey adopted a constitutional amendment that barred all gambling in the State. But during the Depression, the State permitted parimutuel betting on horse races as a way of increasing state revenue, and in 1953, churches and other nonprofit organizations were allowed to host bingo games. n 1970, New Jersey became the third State to run a state lottery, and within five years, 10 other States followed suit.

By the 1960s, Atlantic City, “once the most fashionable resort of the Atlantic Coast,” had fallen on hard times, and casino gambling came to be seen as a way to revitalize the city. In 1974, a referendum on statewide legalization failed,9 but two years later, voters approved a narrower measure allowing casino gambling in Atlantic City alone.

“Around 1980 Clyde Clapp obtained permits to build two garages on property in Rancho Calaveras.

Instead, he built two unpermitted home. Those homes did not have a properly permitted and functioning septic system.

Because the septic systems were not functional, raw sewage was discharged from the homes and was allowed to run down the street and the drainage ditches. Clyde Clapp ignored these obvious safety hazards along with the notices of violation sent by the County.

advertisement
For more than fifteen years he continued collecting rent on these homes while refusing to correct the situation.

Clyde Clapp was finally called before the Planning Commission for a violation hearing. At that hearing, he was ordered to correct the violations and was fined $50,000 per home.

To my knowledge this fine was never paid, these violations were never corrected by Mr. Clapp, and I believe the debt to the County was discharged in a bankruptcy action.

Before you vote for this man, you should ask yourself if you want a person like that representing you as your County Supervisor. How can you trust someone to uphold the county, state, and federal laws when he refuses to follow them himself? He has shown obvious disregard for the public health. He has no respect for the environment. He is not financially responsible. He only cares about his bottom line. District Five deserves better than that.

Thank You.

Terri Bailey

Former 5th District Supervisor”

    Trump is more popular than Dems want to admit
    By Willie Brown May 12, 2018 SF Chronicle

    It’s time for the Democrats to stop bashing President Trump.

    It’s not going to be easy, given his policies and personality. It might even mean checking into a 12-step program.

    Like it or not, a significant number of Americans are actually happy these days. They are making money. They feel safe, and they agree with with the president’s protectionist trade policies, his call for more American jobs, even his immigration stance.

    The jobs growth reports, the North Korea summit and the steady economy are beating out the Stormy Daniels scandal and the Robert Mueller investigation in Middle America, hands down.

    Democrats need to look like the adults, not like another pack of screaming kids on the playground.

    And they need to start now.
