Sheldon Adelson Is Betting Kids Can Get His Message Across

New anti-gaming ad features unsupervised, game playing kids.

The ad wizards behind Sheldon Adelson's attempt to ban consenting adults’ freedoms employ game playing kids and iDevices in his latest video.

Imagine if you will completely unsupervised kids who play games like Angry Birds and Candy Crush finding their way into regulated online gaming, like blackjack, roulette and poker. These kids, who apparently don’t spend money in those games but when prompted, decide to play for big bucks on games that are not nearly as entertaining when you don’t understand them. Continuing to lie to their parents about what they are doing, and possibly even stealing their parents credit card at some point, this “innocent” kid gets his family in quite a pickle by losing the farm.

Once again, Adelson is using fear mongering to control the people and pull on heartstrings. Do you think this one will work?
