More Hope

Hopeful story from the NY Times that the UIGEA may be repealed, unless the christian right has anything to say about it...

The biggest potential change would be in the United States, where, perhaps within days, Representative Barney Frank, Democrat of Massachusetts, is expected to introduce legislation aimed at overturning the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act.
As always, useless christian conservatives have to get in the way:
Michele Combs, a spokeswoman for the Christian Coalition, said the group was gearing up for a “massive campaign” of letter-writing and lobbying to try to prevent any loosening of the law.

“We’re not saying people shouldn’t go to Las Vegas,” she said. “But when it’s in your home, it’s too easy. It breaks up families.”
Yeah, stupid people in stupid families. Why do you have to restrict my rights because stupid people will do stupid things? Don't you realize that they are just going to find some other stupid way to fuck up their families? Get a fucking life, stop trying to run mine.

Thankfully I can still bet on the ponies from home. I'm sure it has been proven that poker playing causes more harm to families than risking money on 50 - 1 shots. Nothing like betting on the 1 outer on the river every single time. Stupid government and always trying to tell me what I can do with my own money. In their defense, they have already decided what to do with it, so they can't afford to let me lose any more.
