      I voted no also.  LIve in a  state that has lottery.  More is won here than other states. 

       

      This bill if pasesd into law will only allow betting betting for state run lotteries. Does anyone know which state has online lotteries?

        Looka there!

        I'd have missed that if you hadn't posted it.

        I guess old tenja thinks I'm a lot more important than I think she is.  Makes a lot of sense, when you think about it.  Who'd have thought she and I could both be right at the same time?

        Gracias,

          Not original though...Emily G. already slam dunked me. But I give her credit for labeling the basketball.

          But seriously folks....I don't play lottery online but it bugs the crap out of me that our Big Brother or Uncle Sam insists on shoving his nose up our bee-hind every chance he gets. When are we going to put a stop to this harrassment?

            Heck Rick.  Gotta say, when a person posts something of that sort it means you're doing something right.

            The kind of person who's post it  is the same sort you wouldn't want to be thought well of.

            As for the online numbers thing and Big Bro, it's just a matter of going for the soft under-belly, same as always.

            They've gone to a lot of trouble for a long while getting folks thinking we're not able to make our own decisions and need protecting.  Gambling addicts.  Poor and under-educated.

            Now they've spang done a good thing, protecting us from ourselves.

            Now, they catch us doing it they can lock us up with all the jade smokers they're protecting from themselves. 

            Won't be long, though, before they have to put all the 'good' people inside to protect them from us and all us criminals outside because there're so many more of us. 

            Lot's cheaper to feed and house and protect the minority (them as is scared to death of us gamblers and whatnot) in a tight-fitting environment than trying to feed and house the multitude majority who don't need protecting.

            The biggest prison in the history of humanity, the US will be, with all the goodest citizens safely locked away behind bars, protected.

            Whoop-tee-doo.

              I really like the online playing.. The money is great.. The challenge is super..I would probably lose  playing only TN in state. Playing online has provided me with a way to play with their money instead of mine. 

              Overall , if they take away the online gambling. I can say I got my initial $100.00 back that I started with..

              and pocketed money for fun things..

              Wish I could say that for TN in -state playing..  I got to get busy and learn this state..

                    I voted no to the poll. I don't bet online so it really won't effect me, but that doesn't mean I want the ability to play online to be taken away.

                        Ah those hard times, those post-Y2k survival challenges. 

                       An anecdote concerning online casinos, and what's likely to come of this legislation:

                       

                      A few years ago, 2003, maybe,  a meth-cook named Dan Shaulis, from over in the East Mountain, whom I briefly thought was a friend (that's when I learned as much as any decent person ought to know about meth, tweakers, blasters, and cooks) had a lot of money lying around. 

                      Dan had me research the possibility of opening an on-line casino out of Costa Rica.  We went so far as to drive over to Austin, TX for a copy of my birth certificate so's I could get a passport and we could fly down to set it all up.

                      But in those days it cost $25,000 lock, stock and banana peel to do it.  They'd even run the thing for you and deposit the returns in an offshore bank.  Costa Rica was considered 'user friendly' for such operations in those days.

                      As it happened a minor explosion in the lab caught old Dan in the face, followed by a series of bizarre events with him, me and his mom going on the run for a while from uglies, kept the whole thing from materializing.

                      But I'm digressing.

                      My point is, what's going to become of all those folks invested  their hard-earned money in off-shore, online casinos? 

                      We're sitting here discussing what it might mean to us, this legislation.  But what about the people who own the Ten cent score?  We're worried about the little people, but what about the big people gonna lose change in this thing?

                      It's a sad testimony to the spirit of free enterprise, is what I'm saying.

                        Another point to consider is that if this thing materializes what is going to happen to all of that player money in overseas accounts? My advice to an online gambler is to watch how this legislation progresses very carefully and liquidate your account when it looks imminent ... and beat your fellow players to the punch.

                              Back in the early '70s with the health department I worked a while with a nurse named Inga. 

                              Old Inga grew up in Germany during the 3rd Reich years.  During the hard times after the War she doing street duty and married a GI, so's she came back here with him.

                              Interesting thing, though.  Old Inga didn't want to hear anything bad said about Adolph Hitler, nor the Gestapo.  She thought times were good before the war.  Thought the Gestapo kept things pretty well in line, tried to do a good job.

                              She thought Hitler was a good leader.  She never saw herself as having lost liberty nor the pursuit of happiness under the 3rd Reich.  She was a Hitler Youth.

                              Definitely a different perspective.  One you don't hear much.  But for the average German who supported Hitler, didn't like disorder, they didn't notice any loss of liberty.  They saw others hauled off to the camps and slammers and thought it was a good thing.

                              Just like a lot of Americans today don't feel any loss of liberty, think it's a good thing seeing people hauled off and locked up for victimless crimes.  It's all a matter of whether a person needs some elbow room in life.  Whether he's a cheerleader for the Gestapo, or one of the ones the cheerleaders for Der Fuerher and Gestapo love to see the them kick down the doors of.

                              Crazy life.  So similar.
