internet gambling

Heads up, this past Saturday Congress snuck in a bill which makes it illegal for credit card companies to process payments based on internet gambling. Its been attached to a bill on Port Security - don't you love the US? What the 2 have in common I have no idea. Anyway - in about 10 days its probably going to become law and partygaming.com and another major gambling company have said this will force them to shut down US operations.

  • I still have my Paddy Power account but I am creating a stock pile of booze and dirty films in my basement now in case those are banned as well.

  • Internet gambling will become legal again when it hires lobbyists who know how to properly pay off congressmen and senators.
