NEWSFLASH:  Obama and the Democrat Party backs OWS protests against the 1% of wealth holders.  Last I checked, even Warren Buffett does not have a budget of 1 trillion dollars; oh, but the grand ol' US government has a budget of 1.3 trillion dollars.  So that would make President Obama the 1% and all the rest of us, including Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, the 99%.  So BO has indeed hoodwinked the OWS folks to camp out in town squares and Wall Street when they should have been camping out on the WH lawn.  Fools!

Just watched John Stossels, "Illegal Everything" on Fox and this action here by the government is confirmation of the fact the government is just looking for all the ways it can to make any and everybody criminals and dependent on the government itself. 

There are a number of things that need to be repealed when the new President takes over next year such as:

1. Repeal ObamaCare.

2. Repeal illegal gambling laws.

3. Repeal illegal drug laws (every last one of them; follow Portugals experience in which drug use actually decreased following decriminalization of drugs there).

4. Repeal prostitution laws.

5. Repeal Roe v Wade.

6. Repeal the repeal of DADT.

7. Repeal Dodd-Frank.

8. Repeal payment to former President Obama.

Okay, I just got on a roll and that sounded good!

I am sure we have some moralists who will disagree with any number of my calls for repeal, but no need to comment on that...just think about that when you are going about your day in early November.

I Agree!  Thumbs Up

But ........ if we decriminalize drugs ............ what reason will the Mexicans have to kill each other!?

Roll Mega Millions ................ Pennsylvania needs to have our first big Jackpot in MM !

      How come our government can bully foreign companies and arrest their citizens?  If websites are located outside the U.S., then the most that should be allowed is to stop that website from coming within the U.S. borders.  If our government can prove that someone owed taxes on their winnings, they should collect the taxes from those gamblers. If the people doing the gambling broke the law, they should have their day in court.  We should have no arrest powers for foreign citizens unless they physically entered the U.S., committed a crime and then sought refuge in a foreign country.

      Certainly Canada was not trying to impose some kind of socialist behavior on U.S. citizens as a previous poster seemed concerned about.

        Why hasn't there been any indictments for the mortgage fiasco????

        Why hasn't there been an indictment on all of those Congressmen who have benefited from the inside trader information gained over the years.

          Canadians that want the US to function like Canada (socialized medicine, gun control .....) are a threat!

           

          On a positive note: Roll Mega Millions Roll! ..........

          About $60,000,000 wire transfer for a Pennsylvania Winner (no State or Local Taxes for us on Lottery Winnings) with about another $8,000,000 due by the end of the year without any tax mitigation!

          Woo Hoo ............. Cheers

          let me understand you correctly...say you win fridays mega million...being a pa resident and purchasing the ticket in pa,

          then you would not have to pay taxes to the state?

           

          how much would the federal government take?

           

          is it true you can write off your losses against your winnings with the IRS?

            i also agree about the part about legalizing drugs...you really dont need any other drug than mary jane anyway...

            stronger drugs i would not be so sure about legalizing...because people would start and go running naked in the street!!!

              Gamblers in Maryland and elsewhere were sent a least $100 million by wire and check from 2005 to 2012, the U.S. Attorney's office said, adding Bodog conducted a $42 million advertising campaign between 2005 and 2008 to attract gamblers to the Bodog.com website.

                  I love all the clueless people that post on here.

                  The Feds, you know the CIA and FBI are literally swarming and overrun with Mormons and I think we know which party the Mormons belong too. 

                  Don't strain your brain too hard, but you can look it up for yourself. 

                  Mormon controlled FBI, CIA and President and then you will really see some fun times in this country. 

                  The Feds tend to do their own thing, regardless of who is President and Jesus Christ get real, Ron Paul? That dude has not won a single primary in his life and has not even come close to winning one. I constantly read you people talking about Ron Paul 2012 but somehow you don't seem to go out and vote. You do know that is how the electoral process actually works right? And if by some miracle of miracles Ron Paul actually became President, he could never get any of his pipe dream bills passed anyway. You do know for a law to actually get passed it has to get passed in the Senate and the House and then approved by the President? He just does not walk in with a magic wand and pass these magic bills all by himself. 

                  The lobbyists actually run this country, if you have a problem with a particular law, you might want to take it up with them.

                      Anytime your making a buck... the government wants in on it...     This government needs to be cleaned out of all the corruption..

                      inevitably it will be cleaned...if anyone doesn't think we're not gonna look like what's been going on in europe and other places with people going apesh*t in the streets because of out of control government they got another thing coming.

                        The part that really burns my as$ is that they shouldn't even be wasting resources on stuff like this now since times are tough for alot of folks.I have a hard time believing the money people win doesn't filter into the the economy in a positive way.

                          There have been no State or Local Taxes on Lottery Winnings in Pennsylvania for a long time!  If you win, there is an automatic 25% deducted for Federal Taxes. You would owe the balance of the 35% Tax Rate unless you mitigate your tax burden. You would take home about $39,000,000 as a resident of Pennsylvania!
