I’m glad he has nothing else to worry about.
What about those two border patrol agents that are sitting in prison?
But Wall Street gambling with taxpayer money is all good
It doesn’t matter. 0bomer will simply write an Executive Order and put an end to all of Bush’s efforts.
Yep, probably the #1 reason the GOP lost close elections in 2006. Poker players tend to be conservative in their thinking and don’t appreciate this type of nanny-statism and infringement of their rights.
Will the Social Security game still be legal?
It’s not like it’s easy now to fund an online poker account. At least that’s what people tell me.
Well, at least Bushy won’t ban internet porn.
why do this? it would be the only way to make any money once obama is in charge!
frankly, this issue and the prayer in school and the burning the flag amendments are what has sunk the GOP....not willing to tackle the big and important issues so we tackle the little ones to make a statement....
I will BET that hussein will rescind this online gambling ban, and then place a tax on it, as well as ebay, etc....
I regret voting for Bush ....both of them....what a waste of 8 yrs....even though Iraq had to be done and we got two judges...so much time was lost...
Bush = Idiot.
I am tired of the social nanny state by some Republicans. If someone wants to gamble, I don’t care. It is none of my business because it is legal.
Why not tackle voter fraud which affects all of us? Oh wait, he would have to actually take a stand that we have voter fraud.
Bush can take his compassionate conservatism and shove it.
Talk about Bush idiots. I am a Nevadan and know there are online gambling risks. But outlawing it just makes it go offshore. If you think the war on drugs is hard, try enforcing a ban on internet gambling.
The best part is we get absolutely zero political advantage and a kick in the teeth to boot.
Bush really wants to prove to us he is an IDIOT! Of all the things to worry about, this is number 49,248.
Obama will make it legal. He will just tax the cr@ps out of it.
You mean he’s going to close E-Trade?
Agreed. This is silly.
