Re: “Sweepstakes cafes: coming to your low-income neighborhood

If you close the internet cafes you need to also shut the banks down for charging all those damn fees. Shut down the liquor stores for promoting alcoholism. Just down grocery and convenient stores for selling cigarettes that give people smoke addictions. Close the movie theaters for charge $25.00 to see a stupid move. Close music companies for taking artists hard earn talent and paying them nothing. Stop all bus trips that take people to casinos in Atlantic City and West Virginia and Cherokee Casinos and many others. Stop the tax man from take 40% of you income and throw it away. Stop the stock market from stealing you hard earned money. If don't know those people if you entrust your hard earnedd money. The water companies are charging outragious prices for drinking water. The electric companies are charging terrible prices for electricity.

Re: “Sweepstakes cafes: coming to your low-income neighborhood

I constantly frequents internet cafes in Raleigh. I enjoy playing the games when I have extra cash. I use the internet there probably more than anybody. There are some internet places that do not practice what they preach.

The Internet cafe on South Saunders Street near the old Bingo parlor doesn't allow you to be on the internet if people are waiting to play the games. I also had a problem with the one on Avent Ferry Road near the DMV, they didn't let you stay on the internet if customers wanted to play the games. The internet cafe on Capital Blvd, in Raleigh, NC near Chuckie Cheeses would allow you get on the internet and would not kick you off the computer if you were not playing the game. The Intent Cafe called New Hope Business Center has no problem with internet uses. They do enjoy when customers come and buy internet time and some customers don't play the games. I went to the internet cafe in Garner, near the Food Lion on Timber Drive and they kicked me off when they had drawings and customers were playing the games. I haven't been back since. There is another one called DKALL which is near the Walmart on New Hope Church Road near Wake Forest Road and they don't like you surfing the internet if though they don't get many customers has they other ones with the IIT games. Those are the best games out there with the best visuals. The majority of customers that go to these parlors enjoy the conversations with one another and also a meeting place for networking for jobs and other things that they meet together to enjoy. Alot of people from churches go also. There are quite a alot of adult students that go to do there class work because the libraries cut you time short. If the State of North Carolina and businesses continue to cut jobs what else will people do to cut the costs in there life and have fun. Do you really care about the poor people. It seems that it is okay to charge $2.99 a pound of tomatoes and $2.95 for a gallon of gas. You say you want to help the poor stop charging so much for basic things that we need to survive. You should give discounts to poor people if you really give a damn about them.
