CNBCCharmaine will be debating gambling today, Friday at 4:30pm on CNBC. [Update: This is a time change.]

Our libertarian friends from the CATO Institute will be the pro-gambling side. The ‘do your own thing’ institute. CATO is silent on abortion. And slavery, I think.

Charmaine, who received her doctorate in government/political science from Mr. Jefferson’s University, UVA, will be challenging the convention wisdom of “gambling does no harm — harms no one.”

CATO motto: “Whatever.”

    Bravo, Charmaine, for taking on Cato on gambling. Most “victimless crimes” aren’t victimless, and gambling’s certainly one of them.

    But does CATO honestly oppose having traffic signals? Such a thing seems to me to be one of the classic examples of the kind of rules-of-the-road, liberty-facilitating government actions liberarians DO support.
