Does Chuck E. Cheese Run Kiddie Casinos? Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Thu, May 12, 2011, 09:01 pm
Allegation Cheese.bmpA San Diego, Ca. mother has launched a lawsuit against Chuck E. Cheese alleging that the favorite pizza chain for kids is actually a nationwide chain of casinos that entice children into becoming lifelong gamblers. Perhaps, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will open an investigation into allegations of illegal gambling at Chuck E. Cheese restaurants all across the country.

According to Fox News, "Denise Keller, mother of two daughters, says Chuck E. Cheese has replaced its traditional games of skee-ball and whack-a-mole (due to allegations of promoting animal abuse) with machines that resemble slot machines, Capitol Weekly reported."

The lawsuit alleges that, "many games found at Chuck E. Cheese restaurants are illegal gambling devices that require little or no skill and are predominantly games of chance, much like a roulette wheel," according to the paper.

As reported by Fox News, "Keller's attorney, Eric Benink, said the games have flashing lights and bright colors just like slot machines."

He told Capitol Weekly that, "there was no fun involved in the game other than an opportunity to win a prize. It's just pure random luck in terms of spinning out a result. That, we believe, is a slot machine, as California penal code spells out."

These Obama Administration scam investigations against large firms that frequently give money to Republicans are nothing more than "The Chicago Way" where the powerful have their political opponents investigated as a form of intimidation and extortion.

That Holder and Obama are connected at the wallet as well as the Mosque and other ways is no surprise. But, what is equally surprising and disappointing is the blatant manner in which Obama uses government agencies to go after states and companies where Republicans have - or could get - a foothold.

....and McDonalds hires SPIES for burger flippers while seducing kids into fat food via bags filled with cheap toys.

Chuck e cheese clearly is home to parents with a lot of class wishing to take their kids to meaningful places for food and play.

Wait until "loser pays" legislation gets passed around the nation...and see how many lawsuits like this get filed.

Bishop T.D. Jakes Says Rev. Franklin Graham Should Apologize to President Obama for Questioning his Faith.

Dallas South News Wire (TV One)


Roland Martin: Rev. Franklin Graham has made some comments on several occasions as recently as three weeks ago really questioning, if you will, the faith of the President. He said the President has told him he’s a Christian, but he basically said that going to church does not make you a Christian. But the President is on record as saying that he walked down that aisle, he gave his life to Christ, so what do you say to folks like Rev. Graham who, frankly, are muddying the water but other people who are questioning the Christianity of this President?

Bishop T.D. Jakes: I find it insulting. We didn’t question the Christianity of President Bush when he said he accepted Christ, and I’m disappointed in Rev. Franklin Graham in that regard. I wish he had the diplomacy of his father, who brought the gospel to people without being nuanced by politics because when you do those things you offend people that you are actually called to save and to serve. And I would hope that he would see the rationale in apologizing for such statements – because if the President’s faith is suspect then all of our faiths are suspect, because the Bible is quite clear about what it takes to be saved and the President has been quite open about his accepting Christ and him openly confessing it before men. And if it’s good enough for the Bible it ought to be good enough for the rest of us.

Martin: I certainly agree with you on that.

I find Roland to be an absolute racist fool, and Jakes an even dumber fool.

Franklin, on the other hand, speaks from his heart, not his skin color. True Godliness is color blind. Obama does not quality.
