Just Doin’ My Part

As you may have heard, Bush The Thief just signed a law sent up by your House of Muggers and Molesters and your Parliament of Whores that effectively makes it illegal for you to choose to spend your money online in games of chance or skill if that’s how you want to spend your money.

To that end, here’s a list of 55 online casinos for your enjoyment.

I’ll be keeping tabs and will be sure and publish what I find as to work-arounds for all this baloney. Though I don’t know the specifics of the law, I believe it essentially makes it illegal for U.S. Banks to pay the credit card charges you make with online casinos. Off the top of my head, I’d say that if you like to gamble online, looks like you need to get a credit card that’s issued by a foreign bank not under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Though, I don’t know if that’ll work. You also might refrain from spending another dime on any domestic gambling venture, from Vegas, to Atlantic City, to Indian Casinos, to the state’s own gambling machine in the form of lotteries.

By the way, in case you’re wondering, I don’t and have never gambled online. I grew up in Nevada, and it just holds no allure for me. I don’t think I’ve gambled more than a few bucks at bar-top video poker and blackjack in any of my last dozen trips to Vegas. I go for the accommodations and the restaurants. But I have checked out a few of the online poker sites and had thought I might give it a try sometime, as I do enjoy watching World Series of Poker and other such programs on the TV.

    Jon:

    I'm far more tollerant of voting when it it soley for the purpose of UN-doing and not doing.

    Jon,

    At least for Kyl, please don't. I've had CabbageHead Gifford's smarmy mug all over my TV for the last couple of months. It's not that I prefer Kyl (neither is even remotely qualified to represent me, and neither will, regardless of the outcome of the election), I just don't want you to fund even one more airing of her crap.

    Sending her some money won't make Kyl stop what he's doing, it'll just make both of them think you want them to do *something*. Besides, she's no different than Kyl, she just has different ideas about what we should be opressed over first. Same shitcake, different icing.

    Wait, I screwed up. I can't keep my assholes roster straight. Giffords is running for Kolbe's job, I think. I'm pretty sure there's some Republican guy running against her, though my only direct evidence is the wall-to-wall ad campaign she's running. Oh, she rides horses and has a very serious expression on her face when she talks to groups of guys in ties, so she must be "right for Arizona", and have "common sense solutions", unlike her opponent, who "simply goes too far" and is "wrong for Arizona".

    I think the guy running against Kyl is some schmuck named Pedersen. Same smarmy mug, same condecending carnival-barker smile ("sure, it's possible to fit this ring over that beer bottle, you can win a fluffy bunny!").

    Same shitcake, yet another variety of icing.

    Rich…I know you don't believe in voting but for those who do, there is some action to take. When the Government screws up this badly…attaching the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, in the middle of the night, to the Port Security bill, without debate, without anybody reading it, there is just one thing to do…vote the INPEOPLE out and vote some new OUTPEOPLE in. The INPEOPLE, in this case is the Republican leadership and those responsible for this internet gambling prohibition bill.
    They are Rep Leach, Rep Goodlatte, and Sen Jon Kyl. I will be contributing a few $$ to each of their opponents.

    Of course, it took the work of Senator Frist and Rep Hasterd, also, to make it happen…as well as Bush's approval in advance. It seems to me that what Republicans used to stand for just isn't anymore.

    I have never gambled on the internet but I did/do own some stock of World Gaming…it may have gone to zero even though it is located in GB.

    Hoping for change on Nov 7. Jon

    It isn't whether or not you gamble, this used to be a free country but it isn't as free as it was as your posting has made clear. I don't gamble online but I should be able to.

    Jon? Voting is a joke, we do have to get rid of the trash in govt, whayt we have to do is get there attention, Non Violently, and let them know we are fed up with BOTH parties of thieves!
