    Our day in America is the "Age of Irresponsibility."  In other words, the National Motto ought to be changed to "It isn't my fault."  So far as Internet wagering, sweeps, and lottery go, the rationale that it is too easily within reach of minors illustrates my thesis.

    Minor children are the responsibility of their parents.

    Parental authority is equal to parental responsibility.

    Society is not responsibile for the behavior of juvniles; parents are.  Parents should either totally restrict their kids' access to pornography, to Internet wagering, to chat rooms, to all the forbidden temptations out there----or the parents should teach their children responsible behavior.  If they don't, the parents have no right to put the blame on Society, or to expect the external controls of society to substitute for their own irresponsibility.

    The Internet is an adult venue;  if juveniles are going to have access to it, they must comply with good sense and good judgment.  It is their parents' task to see that their children are obedient.  Granted, that isn't the value-system of modern America.  But we adults shouldn't stand back and allow the politicians to pander to the parent vote---by manipulating us so as to "protect" the juveniles from their own folly. 

    What is lacking here is parental responsibility.

      The legislation to be debated blends two versions of bills that have been offered by Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia and Rep. Jim Leach of Iowa, the two said in a statement."

      What needs to be done, is they need to investigate these two fine fellow citizens whom are supposed to be politicians. I wonder if the lobbyist have fattened their bank accounts over this. There is a paper trail everywhere.

      If they're really that concerned over this, they need to go after the sites that allow underage gambling or the ones that have'nt paid their taxes. It's really no wonder why they can't agree to disagree..!

        Regarding the post on fair tax. You will never see the end of Irs. Why? Because they are private collection agency for our scam banking system we have today and pigs in Washington are paid well by these banking pigs. Get it. Your current Pres himself is powerless to these European scamsters. He is just a peon and a gopher to them. And as far as your Constitutional rights; well you really have none my friend. Only what rights your Pres decides to give you as privilege. This is why you have a license to drive your car. Its a privilege given to you by your President. In Gods eyes this is your god given right to travel freely, unemcumbered. Thats why when you go into court and people try to assert their constitutional right they get contempt of court and thrown out of court. Our courts don't deal in constitutional arena, but martial, executive law. In other words you really don't have constitional right. You just think you do and medial sometimes portrays to people this lie. Don't like it. Deal with it. That's what happens when country got seperated from God's law years ago in favor of our scam banking system of today.

        Have a nice day!

            Well Written, I Totally agree.

            It seems we always need to blame somebody else for our failures. or even sometimes move responsibilities and dicsion-making for somebody else, it is easier that way.
