Thoughts on the long term

To the Editor:

Some thoughts while on vacation.

Long-term smoking always has been bad. Now that smoking marijuana is taxable, smoking marijuana is OK?

Gambling over the long term is a loser. Some Illinois legislators want to authorize five more casinos. The house is far richer than any of the players. I guess the gamblers that are losers will qualify for welfare the rest of their lives.

Obamacare. Insurance companies never lose money over the long term.

You can mandate they pay for what you want. They look at their cost and adjust their premiums next year.

I put my dollars on the bet they go up.

I look to leaders who will help us build a better mousetrap.
