Look government sees gambling as tax for the stupid and if someone else is getting smarter, that’s what draws a line...and again....yes they have the guns Crazy

Oh and it does not matter if you live in Mars, or Venus We (the goverment) still think you are breaking the law, so you can't even run an operation from Mars,Venus.......and again they have rockets,missiles Hat

    I agree.

    It just seems to keep getting worse.

    We need regime change in the White House and the Senate.

    Power to the People!

    While agree with you on regime change Ridge....I also thing we need a change in how the Gov is allowed to run once they(elected officials) get in there. Laws mostly are created to stop you from being harmed financially and physically but not tax wise. If this Bodog group was doing business fairly with customers with their bets & payouts from other countries, who was harmed ?  I know I wasn't at all. The governments pockets were !!! ....because they weren't getting "their cut" and can't stop over-spending when they do. While we are a nation of laws..we were supposed to be a nation of freedom and reasonableness. At what point will our wonderful elected officials stop wanting to control our every dollar earned or statement said ? That includes both the Republicans and Democrats. I never thought George Orwell's "1984" would come to fruition. But the desire to control and regulate is getting way overboard....whats next ? a tax for carbon production because you breath air ?  Oh wait, aren't they already talking about taxing nations for Carbon production ??..
        I think good ole Abe Lincoln said it best, " America will not be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves" and the other one I am leaning towards is, " This country, with its institutions, belong to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember it or overthrow it." 
         "Power to the people" is slowly becoming "Power to the (select group of)people"........In my humble opinion

    Stay Positive, Believe and good things will come your way

          This is not a partisan issue, no matter how badly the usual suspects want it to be so.  This is a government problem, period.  Government greed knows not left or right, just green.
