Cash Out Now

Via Wes: if you have money at any site operated by Party Gaming, you'll want to cash out now. If this recent ban on online gaming gets signed into law, which it will, then you will not be able to get your money out.

Also, if you're not already a member, it's not too late to join the Poker Players' Alliance.

Oh, and congress can kiss my ass.

  • I think part of the issue is at the state law level actually. My understanding is that technically, online gambling is already illegal under most state laws, unless you live in a state that allows gambling, eg, Nevada. The feds are stepping in because states are, for obvious reasons, pretty much unable to enforce their gambling bans on online gambling.

    My thought is the laws need to be revamped. The original reason for a gambling ban was the crime, mob ties, etc, that brick and mortar casinos brought with them. These effects are reduced now, but are still there. These effects do NOT exist with online gaming though. The laws should be changed accordingly.

    Or.. it could just be the far right of this country putting pressure on Congress to dictate "morality." There are, after all, senators who are going to try to block the new FDA chair's appointment because he allowed Plan B to be sold OTC, because, well, medically its 100% safe. But, its immoral, or so some in Congress want to tell us. And so is gambling, apparently.
