It also provides taxation and public education services. The Solicitor-General also appears as counsel on behalf of the state, including on behalf of the Crown Solicitor and Director of Public Prosecutions, in civil proceedings as required. These fairly new barring arrangements are supported by a secure online service, so that gambling providers can make barring orders online by venue or type of gambling, and have online access to things like recent photos of persons barred from their venue. They stated in a letter yesterday: I thank the honourable member for her most important question.
Independent Gambling Authority
I seek leave to make a brief explanation before addressing a question to the Minister for Consumer and Business Services on the accountability of the Independent Gambling Authority. I met yesterday with Communities Against Pokies, who are a grassroots advocacy group which takes a peer approach where people who have had problems with gambling support those who have problems with gambling.
After our meeting they raised many concerns that they say have not been appropriately addressed, either by the IGA or, indeed, so far by the commissioner. I think they are of such grave concern that I asked them to then write to me. They stated in a letter yesterday: As discussed, we feel that we are unable to recommend banning through the IGA to problem gamblers at this time… The reasons for this are many, but they refer to particular problem gamblers who have approached the IGA only to be given incorrect information; requests to be banned have untimely delays; requests for envelopes with their banning information not to be marked with IGA insignia have also been ignored, which meant that the particular person's status as a problem gambler was then revealed to their family; and requests for information that they not be told the venues they were banned from also were ignored: On a broader level, some of their complaints go to prominent members of the IGA making public disparaging comments about problem gamblers, some of which I have viewed on Facebook and certainly find to be credible.
Communities Against Pokies wrote to the former minister minister Rau about this issue; they were referred to Robert Chappell the director and they have yet to receive a response. They also wrote to the commissioner, Dini Soulio, in January this year and have yet to receive a response; they have yet to receive an acknowledgement. My question to the minister is: I thank the honourable member for her most important question.
Indeed, Mr President, we have put a number of measures in place to assist problem gamblers, as the honourable member refers to. One of those is voluntary barring, and there is also an involuntary barring arrangement, as well as family protection orders. These provisions were put in place back in July , and they give the Independent Gambling Authority the power to bar problem gamblers for the protection of their own welfare or the welfare of their dependants.

"As long as this was seen as a gay disease. She grabbed his wrist and pushed his hand down into the crevice of her crotch, pushing his fingers into her pussy. He came, shooting cum all over himself.

He lives in the Birmingham area. It has been put to death several times, but refuses to stay dead. It stinks and it rises only to hurt or kill. It has risen again in several rural counties. Casino owners are arguing that their counties have passed county amendments which allow electronic bingo. Someone needs to tell them that their counties are only a small part of the State of Alabama, and are not free to make their own laws--particularly if they are contrary to state law.
They argue that the Poarch Band of Creek Indians are doing it in their casinos. That is not a valid argument. They don't seem to know when the Federal Government rounded up Indians and put them on reservations, they were given certain rights. One was the right to make and enforce their laws on their land. Reservations can be viewed as independent countries within our own. The Green County sheriff wants to change the name of casinos into something more respectable in his county.
We need to remind the sheriff that a rose would smell as sweet no matter what you called it, and casinos with electronic bingo machines would be flagrant violations of Alabama law no matter what you called them. The people behind this new outbreak of gambling argue that casinos provide jobs. They do, but only a few. We would argue that dope dealing, prostitution, robbery, and even murder are jobs; but in America, we call them crimes and people are arrested and punished for them.
The same should be true of gambling. Gambling is not merely an innocent pastime. The large sums of money generated by gambling are often used to bribe state and local officials, and to put people into office who favor it. A New York Times editorial noted, "Gambling is a business so rich, so fast, so powerful, and perhaps inevitably so unsavory, that it cannot help but undermine government.
It takes money which could be invested, loaned, used to start new businesses, etc. Not only does it hurt the economy, it hurts the people. It is a reverse Robin Hood, taking money from the poor and giving it to the rich.
