Arizona politician to end all internet gambling with a new law has has been already "half-passed" and might finish being fully approved soon.

There will be no more quarter store's pick 3 and 4 betting and neither any other kind of internet gambling for americans.

Your gold goosse won't give you any more golden eggs, the gold pot is getting ready to dry up.

If you play online, What are you going to do about it ? Anything ?

      The laws are already in place that makes it illegal for U.S citizens to gamble online.

      That's what we really need, is our government saving us from ourselves. Let's solve some important subjects like war and the homeless first!

      Until they catch me and the hundred of thousands of others that are doing it, I will continue.

        Arizona senator is a Kill (Jon Kyl ) Joy or Joy Kill, as it might be.

        Tell him what you think about his internet gambling's "Kill Joy" bill.

        Write to him and to your own state's "kill-joys".

        Give them a big piece of your mind.

          I don't play online so this won't effect me, but I doubt many people are going to quit doing it.

              It was on CBS' "60 Minutes" last night.

              Hard to keep it on the downlow.

                  If they can find a way to tax it, they will keep it going.

                    "Children can access Internet gambling sites on the family computer, wager with Mom's credit card, click the mouse and bet the house," Kyl declared.

                    What a great line...

                    This story in the Washington Post appeared on July 25, 1998.  Over seven years ago.

                      I Agree!

                      That's probably the reason marijuana isn't legal. They make more money off of it from fines and confiscated drug money.

                      I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

                            Red DevilOK I read it.  It behooves me the way politicians always say that they are doing something for moral reasons when really $ching$ is the bottom line. 

                            Foreign online betting sites are making billions from Americans and they want the piece of the pie and hope to scare people like to me to stop, since they can't step on it.  (get a cut) I live in a state when being caught with a gambling slip meant a night in jail and a fine.  I've never been in jail so I scare easy. (knock on wood)

                            They can't regulate online companies.  Ha Ha. 

                            Authorities have told them they have better fish to fry.  Banks are too greedy to stop making transactions.

                            Corrupt a$shole$.

                              Just remember, the story was on "See BS".

                              Cracking down on internet gambling won't happen because the Feds have bigger fish to fry and the law would be basically uninforcable and very, very unpopular politically. The "Get Bush" network is just out to stir something up.  The idea sounded good during the morning staff meeting because it was "for the children" and who could be against that?

                              Let's not run around like Chicken Little worrying about the sky falling in.  It won't happen.
