    This bill is up for debate on CSPAN1 right now. 

    It would appear that it's passage in the House is considered a done deal, since Democrats (....praise those who truly care about America's working men and women!!....) have been using their rare opportunity for extended floor time to argue for an "up or down" vote on increasing the minimum wage, for the first time in 9 years.

    Let's hope the waste-of-legislator's-time internet gambling bill dies in the Senate.

      I think it will pass, but I don't think it will make people stop gambling on the net.

      Dance like no one is watching.

        Believe it still has to pass the senate before it's made law. 

        Email or fax your senators if you're concerned ... have heard they do not open snail mail since the mail scare after 9-11, but yes, they will at least give you a canned reply to having recieved an email.

        You need to tell them what you think ..... they can't read your mind.

        Good luck to everyone!

            VISA is all powerful, they won't let this pass.  They're everywhere you want to be and some places you don't.

            Only those who attempt the absurd can achieve the impossible.

              An article in the St Louis Post-Dispatch said that lotteries and horse racing are exempt - it also stated online gambling is a $12,000,000,000 a year business.

                I believe it is exempt in the same state for lotteries, provided that state approves it.

                In other words, the State of California could approve my playing the lotto over the internet by purchasing my tickets from the State of California!!

                The way I understood it on C-Span, it would only be in your own state and with your state lottery.  I don't know about horse racing, but I think it is the same.  Can't cross state lines.

                  Unfortunately, that's also how I understood what was meant by the exemption for lotteries, CD. 

                  Thanks for the excellent explanation.

                    Whatever!

                    It will stop some, but it won't stop most or at least very many (Thousands).

                    People still download music, videos and pirated softwares, not to mention "Cracks".

                    The FTC and the FDA, have been trying to put DR. Hulda Clarck in jail for many years now, maybe for more than 10 years, I don't think that they have been able to yet.

                    They also took down the BioElectrifier sites, yet there are still sites where they give you the info for free and or sell the electronics, same with Ionic Silver machines, the Zapper and other such devices.

                    Snake Oil? Maybe, but probably not, at least they won't hurt you and might help some.

                    EXCALIBUR is no more that "Handle" is dead, gone.
                    Maybe sometime in the future I might come back as LANTERN again, but maybe not, if I don't come back as LANTERN in the future then I won't come back at all, but as I said there is no more EXCALIBUR.
