Yep, that would be correct. Getting Rid of Republicans  would not solve the problem. Yes. there's corruptness on both sides. Systems was built on corruptness and is inherently corrupt.  American  was in the early  years a country based on God's law. America was prosperous and rich. Land of Beauty. Then on the other spectrum you had the cunning and brilliant European scam artist whose name was Rothchild who was determined to get his clutches on this American God loving country. He had suckered other nations into his central banking scheme and America was his ultimate goal. When the depression hit Ameican , America in dire need of "quick money" was indeed lured into this trap of Rothchild. America was sold out on that day and quess what folks, They still have a stronghold on  us Americans today. Almost overnight, Ameica became a police state. Amerca has a central Bank and therefore a nation debt . And quess what the collateral is on this debt. Well, its the proceeds of labor on every American Citizen. Without your even being aware or told. you were contracted in with your birth certificate and ssn as being Chattel property and slave labor to pay debt to central bank. The IRS is just a collection agency for the Central Bank or Federal Reserve. People say well, why doesn't president just get rid of IRS. Well, he can't folks. He is powerless to do anything. He is just a peon and gogher to this all powerful agency. He probably shakes in his boots when he thinks of going against the IRS. The Only President who ever stood up to the IRS is Pres Kennedy. He tried to cut the dependency of America on the Central Bank and Kennedy started printing real money. When I say real money, I mean money that is backed by gold. and not useless bank notes like we have today. Its funny how Kennedy ended up dead soon after isn't it. Ever Since around 1913, America has also been in "state of emergency" status. This status effectively bypasses the consitution and give president full exec. power. Our courts work in the maritime or execute jurisdiction. Company law etc....In other words, you've lost before you ever get into court. You are striped of your constitutional right before you even get into court.So you people who think you have constitional right, think again. the constitution is just a "showpiece" to show to american slaves, to make them "think" they have rights. They just use it to keep the people at false sense of security. In the early days of America, people owned their land outright with true title or "alloidial" title. But today, you really own nothing. The ultimate owner of your land and house is with the state. Why do you think you have to pay property taxes on it . And quess what, your land and house you "think" you own is collateral to national debt as well. If the dollar one day crashes, you will find out real quick who owns your property because the banks will start recalling bank notes, and sieze your property. So, there you have it, system was built on corruptness and to fix it you would have to bring down the whole system and start from scratch. So, remember when you vote, Republican or Democrat it really doesn't matter. You Lose. They know what they are doing.

      LONDON, July 18 (Reuters) - Shares in online gaming company BETonSPORTS were suspended on Tuesday after its chief executive was detained in the United States and the FBI ordered four telephone companies to cut off its operations.

      BETonSPORTS said it had been unable to contact Chief Executive David Carruthers, who is being held in Fort Worth, Texas, but had seen a U.S. indictment "alleging various criminal acts against multiple defendants".


      The detention of Carruthers is a blow to the $12 billion a year Internet gambling industry. He had spearheaded a campaign against a Republican-written bill to crack down on online gambling.

      BETonSPORTS said it was urgently trying to clarify the situation and assess the impact of a temporary restraining order on its business in the United States, its biggest market.

      Shares in companies across the sector fell by as much as 19 percent, while some British gaming executives said they were reviewing whether to travel to the United States.

      "This comes a week after the extradition of the NatWest Three, and a lot of companies will be looking at their travel plans," said leisure analyst Wayne Brown at Altium Securities, referring to three former British bankers extradited to the United States last week.

      The three pleaded not guilty in federal court to fraud charges linked to a deal with defunct energy giant Enron Corp.



      The U.S. Department of Justice said on Monday that BETonSPORTS was among 11 individuals and four corporations facing various charges of racketeering, conspiracy and fraud.

      The founder of BETonSPORTS.com, Gary Kaplan, 47, was also charged with 20 felony violations, and a warrant has been issued for his arrest, it added.

      "BETonSPORTS.COM and other gambling Web sites operated by Gary Kaplan and his co-defendants offered gamblers in the United States illegal wagering on professional and college football and basketball," said a copy of the indictment seen by Reuters.

      The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has instructed four telephone companies to stop providing services to BETonSPORTS, the company said, citing the U.S. Department of Justice.


      The United States has also filed a civil case ordering BETonSPORTS to stop taking sports bets there and to return money held by U.S. customers in their gaming accounts. A hearing in the case could be held within 10 days.

      Shares in the company fell 15 percent on Monday after U.S. authorities detained Carruthers while he was changing planes in Dallas on Sunday on his way home from Britain to Costa Rica.

        That's not good...not good at all.

        The North Carolina Education Lottery - so much a joke that here are their mascots:

          Take steps to curb gaming on Internet


          Critics find a lot of reasons the U.S. House of Representative's recent legislation to curb Internet gambling cannot succeed:

          * Online gambling is extremely widespread, originating mostly outside the boundaries and influence of the United States.

          * As many as 80 countries allow it in some form. There are already some 2,500 Internet gambling sites, and the number is growing rapidly.

          * Many religious organizations won't get behind the bill because it fails to flat-out target all gambling. It specifically excludes horse racing and existing state gambling operations, such as Powerball, and does not prohibit fantasy sports games, which Major League Baseball credits for a resurgence of its own popularity.

          * Policing the Internet may be virtually impossible.

          * The coincidence of the upcoming congressional elections and introduction of the legislation causes suspicion.   Previous attempts to outlaw Internet gambling acquired an odor when they were defeated by, among other forces, now-disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

          * If people want to gamble online, they are going to find a way to do it. Millions of people are trying their hands at the $12-billion-a-year business.

          * The U.S. Senate doesn't show the same zeal as the House, and the bill has only a slim chance to go through this year.

          * Legislation infringes on individual rights to privacy through computer use at home.

          * The United States should, like England, consider regulating and taxing it.

          Yet, despite these negative aspects, the House is on firm ground in attempting to address the problem, which certainly will only get worse.

          Supporters find worthy reasons for the effort to go forward:

          * Internet betting can be a problem for gamblers. The Internet is addictive for many people anyway, said Rep. John Duncan Jr., R-Texas, and online gambling can be doubly addictive.

          * Online gambling is particularly attractive to younger people. (A former Lehigh University class president recently pleaded guilty to robbing a bank to pay online poker debts).

          * According to one of the bill's sponsors, strong opposition by many offshore Internet gambling sites proves the legislation would be effective. The offshore operations are sucking billions of dollars out of the country.

          The bill's strength lies in its efforts to put a brake on the outflow of money. It would make it illegal for financial institutions to process payments to offshore casinos through bettors' electronic funds and other e-wallet transactions.

          It updates the Wire Act of 1961, which outlawed transmission of betting over telephone lines, to now outlaw online gambling through any communication network. Criminal penalties were also made more severe.

          The measure would empower law enforcement authorities to work with Internet providers to block access to gambling Web sites.

          All three representatives in Nebraska's delegation - Republicans Jeff Fortenberry, Lee Terry and Tom Osborne - voted to approve the measure, and the Bush administration has expressed overall support.

          The House is to be lauded for tackling the problem. The bill doesn't pretend to wrestle Internet gambling to the ground, but it does introduce some sorely needed oversight. It now deserves timely consideration by the Senate.
