      Yeah isn’t that something, they pay out money to their customers and get seized by our government. Banks in the U.S. rip off the public and almost bankrupt the country and what do they get? Bailed Out.

      Something is very wrong in this country of ours!

        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.

        They committed crimes within the US. The fact that they themselves werent in the US is irrelevant. Though they weren't physically present in the US,  they conducted their illegal gambling business in the US by way of the website, transferring money into the US, and perhaps other means.

          I have to say I hope these guys all get away scot free. They weren't FORCING these gamblers to spend their money or gamble online.

          So if they hadn't dealt with gamblers in Maryland 'and elsewhere', could the Feds have even arrested them?

          I think the Feds should go after real criminals...

          So, these guys violate the laws of states in the US, and you think they should get a pass?  Pull your head out; they broke the law, they pay the penalty.  It's just that simple.

            I say the U.S. government should block that website so our citizens cannot access it.  Their website is located outside the U.S. and is legal in Canada.  If it is illegal here, then it should be up to the government to "protect" us.  Why put the burden on the website owners and subject them to being arrested?  It should be relevant where the owners are located.  If they set foot inside our borders, then we should have jurisdiction, not before.

              It's all comparitive. Look at the crimes others have committed, including our own banks and even worse our government, and get back to me. Maybe scot free is a bit too easy on them, but they arent scamming people or hurting anyone.Pull YOUR head out, wake the feck up, and go back to church. Oh, and why are you even on this site? Do you even support online gambling? Or gambling at all for that matter?

                  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.

                  I love your first sentence...are you asking for some drunken monkey style to rip out your forked tongue??

                  Are you saying that if a mormon is elected president it would be a threat to christian values?  Its not so much the mormons you have to worry about because they are mostly sheep anyway...what i have heard on youtube and on southpark is that what you have to worry about are the satanists who conceal themselves within the mormon religion.

                   

                  Ron Paul has a very young base of followers, those same young that are going to pick up the bill for our out of control spending.

                  You always hear that the country will be less safe if Ron Paul is elected...but he is the ONLY candidate (i think) that has actually done any military service for his country!!!

                  I agree the lobbyists actually run the country...but how do you actually propose that i take it up with them...offer them half of my MM JP?Hyper

                    Do you understand what happened?

                    "If it is illegal here, then it should be up to the government to "protect" us."

                    It is illegal here, so the government did "protect" us.

                    "Why put the burden on the website owners and subject them to being arrested?"

                    Umm, because they're the ones who were breaking the  law? Why does it matter where they were? They  may have been sitting on their asses in Canada, but they reached across the border and broke US laws.

                    "If they set foot inside our borders, then we should have jurisdiction, not before."

                    Are you sure about that?

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

                      I agree with you 100% and then some.   WHAT about the Savings and Loan, the mortgage flip/flop,  the illegal signing of the foreclosure papers with "John Doe's" and all the other corruption in government?  WHO is going to jail for that?    WE the People suffer because the Government decides who goes to jail, but they are exempt? 

                      The elected officials are ''allowed'' insider trading, its against the law but no one stops the people we send to office to serve the public interests from doing it and their friends and families too.  How do you think they got so rich with a job that would take them 50 years to become rich?  Uhmmm???   

                      What about the guy that stole money and gave it to the Tea Party?   Didn't give much from the 340 million that he stole, but I didn't hear that they gave the money back. 

                      Don't get me started on the Pac Fund or the Court's decision that a corporation is an individual with the same rights as you and me........

                      God help us all!

                       

                      I could go on, but it gives me a headache.....A bad one.

                              Are you a high fed government official? Because that is their attitude towards the people. (care less)

                              I think this is more “what you have, I want attitude”………and they got the gunsCrazy
