The more I read about this idiotic bill the less I become worried about it. The goverment cannot refuse to let you deposit money into a forgien account. They at best can tax what you recover back from that account.
Most serious internet gamblers WANT it to be regulated because of the security it would afford. But this simple fact is lost on many a skull of mush.
Add to this that most likely the WTO will get involved and this bill is nothing more then a cheap card trick to amuse the religous right.
So let it be known.......
"I'm ALL IN!"
"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." -Manuel II Paleologus
My skull is mush too over this. I thought this had to do with interstate commerce as well. You know, the same reason you can't buy a lottery ticket with a credit card. Be easy, I didn't read the entire bill.
sounds plausible, but most of the offshore sites are already banning US players because of this nanny state BS. I started withdrawing from them last week. These politicians TAKE my $$ to pad their retirement but I can't play a $ 2. sit and go poker game from the comfort of my home. But I could drive 2 hours to Biloxi and blow thousands ? What a crock!!!!
The whole thing's amusing. THIS is what it takes to wake up the sheeple? God help us.
I'm viewing it as a learning experience for people. My son likes to play online poker. Now he'll be setting up his first offshore account at 22 rather than at 40.
I dont gamble and I know nothing of the way this thing works, but I would amek a small wager.
If the Government thought this wouldnt hurt their Lotto and Keno games and they could figure a way to rake off 10% there wouldnt be any objections.
