      JAP 69 is right.when its all said and done this bastard is going to get this passed one way or the other.look for a bill to be voted on by the middle of next week.by next friday or so you might no longer have internet gambling as an option for all americans to enjoy.good night all..........

       I signed up to betslips and without a problem, the only thing I need is a job to fill the account lol...well, don't know bout you guys but you can continue to complain about an issue that has nothing to do with you making money now, or you can just continue to have fun playing the lottery online...it seems that alot more people then I thought chose the 1st option instead.

      Oh well, have fun waiting on the outlook of this ridiculous case

        There are so many "Joy Killers", I guess that they don't have anything better to do, I hope that in the end it goes the way of "PROHIBITION" and music downloading (Napster).

        I hope that those laws are impossible to enforce.

        There is nothing wrong with gambling it is a nice clean past-time, it has nothing to do with sex, drugs, violence, terror nor war, Well, as far as I know any-way, but I might be wrong.

        If there was something wrong with playing the lottery, Would there be state and country lotteries?

        It seems like a safe, nice, clean thing to do.

        Don't again ever vote for any of the "Joy Killers" run or throw them out of the House and the Senate.

        Say yes to " Gambling Freedom" play the lottery anywhere and anytime, it is our FREEDOM right!

        Vote those people out of the government and or just don't vote for anybody like them ever again.

        Vote for our FREEDOM.

        Say "NO" to "KILL JOYS"

        EXCALIBUR is no more that "Handle" is dead, gone.
        Maybe sometime in the future I might come back as LANTERN again, but maybe not, if I don't come back as LANTERN in the future then I won't come back at all, but as I said there is no more EXCALIBUR.

          Amen...I have a great bar-b-que sauce for pork.  And it doesn't include politicians as an ingredient (although the roasting might eliminate that bitter taste).

          Finally, something we can all agree on!

            Just the pork they hand out like it's free ...... not the politicians.  Send them home back to the real world.

             

            Here's the Nightline segment about internet gambling I saw the other night.  They implied it's all about doing business and not paying taxes, likely withholding US taxes and paying up like state lotteries do.

              They should be working on getting rid of the porn sites and looking for pedophiles which in my opinion is far worse than my little 25 cent bet. Let's vote these MF's out. (Pardon my French)

                Konane, once again a good argument for the Fair Tax Act.

                If you win money with these gambling entities, it will be taxed when you spend that money.  Makes a helluva lot of sense to me.

                What is the confusion with this concept?  I'm a "poor" person and I don't spend much money because I don't make much money so any argument saying this is going to hurt poor people is specious.  If you buy a Leer jet to transport yourself you will be paying a proportionate amount of taxes as a person buying a 10 year-old car.

                The only people arguing it are those who make more money but pay less taxes than we do on April 15th.  Party affiliation is not an issue...it's an issue of hidden wealth and they all have it on both sides of the aisle.

                But you wouldn't be able to hide a Lexus SUV purchase or write it off for business use, would you?

                  Couldn't agree with you more, Rick.  The ones doing the arguing are $$$$$$pecial interests who won't be able to manipulate tax codes any longer to control us.  Saying that makes me soooooo happy!!!!  Big Grin

                  Good luck to everyone!

                    Konane,

                    Since we're talking about the Fair Tax Act in this thread, would you be so kind as to provide the folks a link to the petition address that you had in your blog a while back?

                    Anyone interested in consumption taxes as opposed to production taxes should take a moment to review the issue and sign the petition if you're so inclined.

                    Thanks!

                        Frist Fails to Piggyback I-Gaming Bill
                        U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist's effort to attach prohibitive online gambling legislation to the FY 2007 Defense Department Conference Report (DCR 07) has yet to materialize. The conference committee on the Department of Defense (DOD) authorization bill reportedly removed "Leach-type language" from the bill.

                        A source close to IGN said he expects Frist, R-Tenn., to continue pressuring legislators to amend the bill, making use of provisions introduced by Rep. Jim Leach, R-Iowa, which target U.S. based banks, credit card companies and other Internet payment systems, prohibiting them from making payments to online gambling companies.

                        Frist's campaign has allegedly drawn criticism from House Judiciary Committee Chairman James Sensenbrenner, who insists the only acceptable provision would be one similar or identical to the House-passed bill (HR 4411), the source said.

                        As it stands, the source indicated, the House-passed bill is considered unacceptable by the horse racing industry and, by extension, several key senators, thereby making it "difficult, but not impossible," for Frist to piggyback his prohibitive online gambling legislation onto the DOD bill.

                        i think this is a washington times article
