Today I bring you a funny little story from Southern Carolina. Or well, I suppose it’s funny as long as you’re not one of the bingo halls in the state, sueing the other.
Two bingo halls in Richland County according to Dawn Hinshaw are suing each other.
The bingo battle began when over a law in Richland County. Each of the competing bingo halls claims that the other is allowing smoking, and ignoring a Richland County law against smoking.
The story gets better though. Not only have BOTH bingo halls layered up, they’ve BOTH hired Private Investigators to spy on each other.
It’s not really a surprise that the bingo halls may not be in compliance, one look at the profit loss taken by every state that’s outlawed smoking in bars, lottery and casino’s says that Americans want the freedom to light up. I don’t smoke, and I want American’s to have the freedom.
In fact, I’ve yet to speak to an American anywhere that doesn’t think it’s ludicrous to ban smoking anywhere that you have to be 18 to enter in the first place.
However, since the law’s already here, here’s what’ll happen in Richland County in Southern Colorado if you get busted.
You’ll be forced to pay a fine of $25. Not really anything that’s going to scare a single person, but boy the county sure could make a few bucks raiding bingo night!
