Autor@TheCleverPiggy No, that is not what poker players do. I am a online player and I was affected by this. Players simply deposit money via "Deposit Funds" that is located on the site. We don't set up anything. They set up a dummy account to transfer the money back into your account should you win. The Gov't made it illegal because they want to tax it and the companies are offshore, so they can't. The players just want to play because it is a SKILLED game and people think it's simply gambling.

Autor@arkivx1 ;;;;;;;;;;; WRONG and an outright LIE!;;;;;;;;;;;;;; In 2006 and as part of the SAFE Act, the UIGEA (unlawful internet gambling enforcement act of 2006) was added literally minutes before the bill's passing under Repub marjority in BOTH Houses and was signed by Bush 2 weeks later.;;;;;;;;;;;;; Furthermore, Barney Frank (an obviously known Dem) introduced the IGRCREA in order to change the UIGEA and allow permits and taxation of online gambling.;;;;;;;;;;;;;; NICE TRY!

Autor@PlanetAgnostic It is true that most Americans TODAY dont like the Iraq war and they showed it with their vote in 2006 and 2008. But in 2004, most Americans supported the Iraq war and that is one of the reasons George Bush and the Republican in congress was re-elected.;;;;;;;;;;; ;;;;;;;;;;;;;; Democracy works!

Autor@MrKylehass When politicians do things the people dont like, then the people dont vote for them. Online gambling has been illegal since 2006. There have been at least 2 elections. The people did nothing about the politicians that made online gambling illegal.;;;;;;;;;;; ;;;;;;;;;;;;;; So, the American people in general want online gambling to be illegal!

Autor@ViciousOneWon you are absolutely right. that is my opinion. just like every one else who has posted something here. it is all our opinions. you to even. but imo or not. our government is corrupt. and as for living in a democracy. no. thats not right. we live in a republic. im gonna post that for you. save you time in looking it up. but i do encourage you to look it up and learn it.

Autor: If you can't meme, you can't dream
AutorLet me shed some light on the subject incase people didn't know. The law making online gambling illegal was passed in 2006. In 2008, Russ Hamilton was accused of stealing millions of dollars by cheating in a scandal called the "UB scandal". This scandal aired on 60 minutes in 2008. The Gov't knew back then that some sort of laundering was going on. How did Russ get the money out of Ultimate Bet if it is illegal in the US? Now the Gov't wants 3 billion dollars. This is about the budget.

Autor@ViciousOneWon Let me know how much you trust the government because on one hand you think politicians represent Americans well but on the other hand you are aware that bribery to politicians is legal. It's hard for a government to keep its integrity if bribes are the order of the day.

The government gets away with murder because we let them get away with murder. When the masses wake the fuck up, we'll see change.

Autor@cpufightclub yes. we are pretty much are doing the same thing we did 1000s of years ago but just consider ourselves more civilized because of the advancements made in society. how are we any different when we still gather, recite a book/, texts, and pray etc? isnt that the same thing the ancients did as well? i consider the receiving of the bread and wine ritualistic in a sense. imo being religious to ones self of ok, but using it as a reason to enforce the laws of society is something else.

Autor@ViciousOneWon A Republic is a country that elects Representatives to run the Government. There will be a constitution and a bill of rights that will protect rights even if they are unpopular at the time. It also helps to protect minorities. This is the form of Government we have in the United States. People tend to forget this because our Government thinks that can bend and in many cases disregard the Constitution.

Autor@ccricers Well, thats life. The laws of our country allow politicians to take bribes. Thats the law and their is no way to change it. Every politician we elect needs bribes to get the money for their campaign. That money is obtained from campaign donation (aka bribes). Thats the system we have and it makes politician rich. So no matter how much we want govt funded campaigns, it will NEVER happen. Politicians make the laws and the laws make them rich. So why should they change it?!

AutorThe government imposing increasing absolute control on all financial dealings of American citizens to pay for tax cuts,welfare (individual and foreign and corporate),foreign empire, big business, donor and special interest favors. Always follow the money when it comes to politics. American politicians work hard for the special interests donors that pay to play with tens hundreds thousands dollars.

AutorIf you have yourself under control, gambling might be fun and great. But if not, it may destroy you and your family, and the very people who put up casinos and online gambling websites might very well try to bring the art of "destroying" people that way to perfection. That, in my eyes, would be immoral. Was, is, will be in the future. However: They can´t say it is OK for U.S.-companies to rip people off that way but NOT OK for others to do that.
Autor: taxiuniversum
Autor@asdfgoogle The only reason that its not "that easy" is because the American people are not monolithic. They all want different things. So "ridiculous" to one person is "sane" to another.;;;;; ;;;;;;;;;;;;;; As far as corporations paying off politicians, remember that they CANT pay off VOTERS! So if a corp pays off a politicians to do something the people dont want, then the people have an opportunity to replace the politicians in elections. If people CHOOSE NOT TO replace them, then so be it! Its a democracy!

Autor@ViciousOneWon Well at least that's a better response from the tautology you posted before. I do get your point, politics is in the pits because politicians see their work mostly as a way to get paid and not primarily to provide a service to people. This looks like a call to make our set of checks and balances more robust. Maybe that cycle should extend outwards from the government, to the constituents.

Autor@ViciousOneWon Democracy is a form of Government where officials are elected and allowed to make decisions with out any safeguards. As an example I will use Australia. Australia is a Democracy. People are elected to office by the majority. They have complete control. Australia has no bill of rights. I have heard about the Australian Government censoring free speech. The have the legal authority to do this. In the end a Democracy is no better then a dictatorship. It amounts to mob rule.

Autor@ KripDrip: The gap between the rich and the poor keeps widening in the U.S.. Third world countries have their rich people, too (those who exploit these countries). If you wanna find out how developed a country is, one way is to check its social standards. Especially under G.W.Bush, there was a massive push of rich vampire-minds to grow at the expense of the poor masses, and the Republicans are fighting hard for that to go on. The "American Dream" as a sick ideal of reckless exploitation.

AutorI can not feel the item, yet pokerstars genuinely only matched the first first deposit and gave me any $500 together with the particular $500 I recently deposited. I simply used the actual *marketingcode* psp15562 whenever registering.

Autor@ArmedBrit - Yeah, the US has control over all of the popular domains (i.e. .com, .edu, .co, etc.). The internet was invented by the US government and control of the internet really hasn't changed hands since then. Courts in the US can order any .com website to be seized. It is what it is. Full tilt switched to a .uk domain really quickly, but still.

Autor@Hevox89 I'm not saying whether I agree with it or not but, legally the government absolutely has the right and does tax winnings through gambling -- it is income is it not? And even with taxes eating their bottom line people would still play online poker. Well over 90% of people lose money playing, why do you think the industry exist?

Autor@Graffight ;;;;;;;;;;; You're right, a government (by your definition in which case all government is 'big government'), that protects the rights of minorities, "never works for the people". ;;;;;;;;; So to interpret that little ideological piece of unrefined shit of a statement, I'll assume that a government that protects my rights to smoke or drink (regardless of being limited in certain respects) isn't working for the people--even though some would see these rights taken away.;;;;;;;;;;;; It's not a black n white issue.

Autor@LEARNTOPLAYCRAPS U said, "There are better games out there like Craps." LMAO Of ur long lecture, that is the FUNNIEST MOST RIDICULOUS thing u said. LMAO;;;;;;;;; ;;;;;;;;;;;;;; I got my money back before the sites were confiscated. But I understad ur concern about people losing their money. But, if u do something illegal and u lose ur money, then that the price of doing something illegal.

Autor@2011blueman that sucks man. I just looked at the standard site. Its still ridiculous, Full Tilt is based in the Channel Islands (Alderney IIRC) The US Federal Government should have no jurisdiction over a site, based outside the USA with gambling that is technically happening outside US boarders.

Autor@ccricers The govt is NOT broken. It is working the way our laws intend. Our laws allow politicians to take bribes and call them campaign donation. That is the law! So the govt is working exactly as it is supposed to work, according to the law.

AutorOnline poker is not illegal,get your facts straight.The bill that was passed in 2006 has a grey area whether poker is gambling or a skill game.Obviously its a game of skill.The banks on the other hand have no grey area by how the bill was written.Money in Neteller was frozen for about 6 months after the bill passed,and the players got the money back.Why it took 4 years for Gmen to shut the sites down is beyond me.I heard that thats how long the process took to eventually start a case.

Autor@nolangwhite Question "why doesnt the govt stop taking bribes?" Answer: Because it makes them rich. And that will NEVER change.;;;;;;;;; ;;;;;;;;;;;;;; Campaign finance laws make govt official rich and govt officials make campaign finance laws! It is unreasonable to expect the people in charge the system that makes them rich! So we have to live with it forever!

AutorYeah, thank you so much FBI. We got hackers, child porn sites, kidnappers, drug bosses and international crime syndicates but, dont worry about those. Online gambling is FAR more dangerous than those petty criminals. I would MUCH rather be living next door to someone who could kidnap my son or daughter and force them to do porno shoots than live next door to someone that wastes their own money on an online gambling site, right? /End sarcasm.
