Quoting four4me

"Uncle is also trying to get a piece of ebay he want's his cut from that to. In fact he want's his cut from anything the people make money off of. "

Yeah...so they can finance their pork barrel projects like the 250 million dollar
"bridge to nowhere" that they built.  ANd why not...they look at every American citizen as a bottomless pocketbook.

    Write your state senator, and congressman, we all say we'll do it but we don't.

    We all need to take 30 minutes, write a protest and submit it. Then we all need to vote !!!!!!

      That's good advice. I wrote to my congresswoman last night and it only took a few minutes. I don't have the address but found it easily on google.com, searching for contact of congressional representatives.

      My representative happens to be against a ban on assault weapons because she says "a rolling pin can be an assault weapon". Needless to say I won't be voting for her and won't be expecting a reply from her. That mindset is not what our law enforcement community needs to protect itself, otherwise they'd be armed with rolling pins.

        The only thing Democrats and Republicans stand for is election.

        There is clearly something at work trying to turn this country into a third world nation of low wage jobs. 

        Try reminding your elected leaders the chain of command is we the people tell them what we want and they do it.  Lots of luck with that.

        It might help to keep in mind they never read what you write.  A office worker has lists of issues and records your message as another yes or no.  If something comes up your leader asks how the mail is running on that issue.  That's the extent of your representation unless you make a good poster child.

        Online gambling is perfectly legal where the company is hosting the web site, you are visiting that server/country when you login.  It's just that if you ever had a problem with our so called government over this they would never see things that way because it's their choice how they see everything.

          Well I can tell you how much it means to them to send letters and yes they don't read them the secretaries do! The disease that I had, HS is labeled an orphan disease with no known cause and no known cure! Because it is labeled Orphan there is no research allowed done on the disease because it could not generate enough MONEY for them to find a cure, not that the medical realm would ever find a cure for it anyway! They would make a drug yes but it would be useless! At any rate I know all about writing letters trying to get something done, thousands of people wrote the Surgeon General trying to get HS off the orphan list for research to be done and guess what they all go the same letter back with blah, blah, blah thank you for your letter etc that should of read Like This:

           

           

           

          We hear your cries

          We tell lies

          We feel Sad, it sounds so bad

          We don't care; your disease is so rare

           

          Now Go Away Peons!

           

          Signed,

          The Surgeon General

            Considering the millions of dollars flowing from tribal casinos this is hardly surprising.

                  If the gov raises the payouts for the state lotteries to 900 to 1 then I wouldn't be so upset.  They want us to play their lame state lotteries with a lousy 500 to 1 payout ratio.  I know theres a few state lotteries that pay $600 for a pick 3 hit  but then why do the rest of the states pay only $500 for a pick  3 hit.  All states should pay at least $600 and even that still isn't as good as 900 to 1 payouts.  We should get a petition to raise the state payouts for pick 3/4!  Add it on to the petition to eliminate computerized drawings. 

                 Or maybe they could make  the state pick 3/4  lotteries easier to win by eliminating 1 digit, so instead of choosing from 10 digits, you only have to choose from 9 digits.  10 digits makes the games too difficult to win for me. At least choosing from only 9 digits would make the games a Little more easier to win.  I'm sure they would still make a killing.

                  The way they have the odds stacked against the player now its virtually useless to play state lotteries.  The payouts are WAY too low and if they are going to keep the payout at a lousy 500 to 1 then they should at least make the games easier to win.

                    Maybe we should try to open some kind of account some-where overseas and transfer the money from there forth and back to the 25 cents online lottery stores instead of using a bank here on the U.S.A.

                    Another possible way is to send money to one of our overseas friends who comes here to LP and have him tranfer the money from a bank on his country to the online quarter store(s) for us in our name to be put into our spending account with the quarter store as to getting lottery winnigs from them, well the whole thing can be done in reverse maybe or just have the quater store send the money to us by Federal Express delivery or in some other way including money-gram or what-ever.

                    Maybe we (The overseas friend(s) and us) can have a sort of joint online account with the quarter store(s) in some way or another, nobody has to know about it, not even the quater store(s), the friend(s) can take care of money tranfers into the account(s), we just send the money to the friend(s) using Pay Pal or in some other way, the friend(s) can also withdraw any excess winnings from the account(s) and send to us our share of the money if any.

                    What do you all think about this, Can some-thing like that work O.K.?

                      Lantern i think there will be all kinds of loopholes we can jump through. There is no law that says you cant have an account in another country.

                        Yes, it might even be possible to open an account thru the Internet without even going there at all, paper-work if any could be sent thru regular mail and money tranfers made in one of many possible ways.

                        Maybe even thru Mexico, but if not from there, then from somewhere over-seas.

                        Thru Mexico might be easy, maybe just a short visit to the closest border town.

                        Or Canada.

                        Also. Are there any international banks? That is banks that are both on the U.S.A and in other countries?

                        Or maybe Virtual banks that are only on the Internet.

                          guys, first of all my question is they can prohibit online lottery from taking place in the U.S but they can not prohibit it in other countries can they?
                          Secondly, i will not miss online lotteries anyways. Have you seen what they look like?i've seen a couple of them year ago. And most of them are pick6 1 to 45, 49 or 52. Who is going to get that right. And the latest thing now is to make games be accompanied with bonus balls which makes the game's odds go higher. Let me give you an example, a pick6 game with no bonus ball from 1 to 59 has the odds of 45,057,474 while a pick6 game that selects 5 numbers from 1 to 46 and a bonus ball from 1 to 33 (thus pick6) has the odds of 45,234,882 and 13 numbers less than the other. The odds are almost the same odds, even though one has 13 numbers less to choose from than the other, it has a bonus ball wich makes the odds go higher....

                            They never put a game like pick7 from 1 to 38 or pick6 from 1 to 25, they always make something like pick6/7 from 1 to 45/50/60/65....They used to be an online lottery called world wide lotto that i think operated from costa rica and you had to pay through credit card but through the years dissapeared...it was a pick6 from 1 to 45/49...guys i believe pick6 has ridiculously too many combinations..
                            Third, i don't know if this is going to help, but i once corresponded through email with a top manager of a casino, and she told me the following. She told me that, lottery was considered by the state to be gambling but what you play in a casino was not considered gambling. She say something about games in a casino to be games of chance but lottery was not....

                              Oh I've done that often enough on various legislation.  All that happens is I get a form letter back telling me that the politician basically "knows best" and he/she is still going to push the legislation.

                               IOW you just get blown off.  I doubt the pol even ever gets to see those letters. They spend tons of money on staff that looks at them and sends the form letters. And you never hear from or get anything in the mail from them during their whole term until they're running for re-election of course. Then, suddenly, they know where you are....
