    But that's one of the issues with forums - members post hurredly - in the heat of an emotion - and then people will come along later and read them in the cold light of day and read them differently.

    It's a specialist board - so the comments should be taken with a grain of salt - and always remembering that people are talking about a very small slice of life ... specifically online gambling and tax bases ... but it can also be seen as the "thin end of the wedge".

    However, for some affiliates this is a livelihood that you are talking about - and so emotions can and will be strong. Your post asking for restraint was a good way of getting people to think twice before posting emotional, irrational, posts ...


    But you've got to admit the whole FED policy to online gambling, online payments, is out-of-whack with deep vested (and corrupt) interests ...

    I was speaking to this by kwblue.
    I know you were.

    I understand you being taken back by the comment...

    And I understand his frustrations...

    I think he was speaking from a deep rooted pain at what we see going on in America today. The thought of picking up and moving to another country has crossed my mind on more than one occasion, but I have decided to stay and rage against the machine, so to speak.

    And in doing so, I put myself in great jeapordy. What's that say about the American government?

    I truly can believe that they have not yet arrested any of these online poker pros eg full tilt and celebrities who advertise that they play and endorse playing online. Imagine the press for such an event as tossing a couple dozen + well known names into the clink. The impact would be much greater than grabbing a couple relatively unknown industry founders. I believe the future most likely holds something along those lines.

    Thank you for your comments. It's difficult to reply all at once. First, I am relying on my affiliate wages as well. That does not mean I will turn my back on my Country. If online gambling is a casualty of all that is going on, so be it. What is most important is stopping the 21,000 troops deported. I am looking at the big picture and the important things at the House is not online gambling at the moment.

    I can only speak for myself when I say that you must recognize the difference between the incredible people who make up this great nation of innovators and free thinkers, and the oppressive jackasses running the government they live under. The people sitting in Washington, DC are the ones using 9/11 to rape us of our freedoms systematically.

    I remember with vivid detail the events of 2001, and I cry for and pray for the brave brothers and sisters I have overseas putting their lives on the line so I can sleep at night... but it sickens me to the soul to think that one more will die so that a politician can sit on their fat ass and ruin this nation.
    Hi JTodd,
    Forgive me but this is saying you have no faith in us!

    In the 100th hour of the new house, one of the items was making Senators accountable for sneaking in pet projects last minute on bills.

    Hopefully a step further Gooner.

    Statements about the disappointment a person feels in the way their country is operating or conducting business is not unpatriotic. My father was a POW in a German Stalag Camp and my husband is a disabled vet. That does not make me any more or any less patriotic that the next person. It's my actions that define that. Over the years, my children have done things or made decisions I felt were very wrong. That does not mean I love them any less. The same is true for my country.

    There is no one more patriotic than I am but I'm not going to turn a blind eye to the problems that we are facing in this country and J. Todd is right. This is not just about online gambling. It is so much more.

    Well said. I was not trying to pick a fight, just defending my Country.

    Peace Out
