re: Poker & Legal US online poker?
They talk about that, but they were talking about State to State poker rooms..or at leats in Florida
IIRC and then there will be no players, they say.. So everyone will still play FTP and STARS from the USA, exactly as it has been...unregulated, untaxed, all the while breaking the agreement of free trade or whatever, leaving the WTO mad, and Citizens will forever have payment processor issues....GET WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD PLEASE USA!
And when they ask my state...would you like to opt in(if it even gets that far)....The good ol' Commonwealth of Virginia
will say, " WE OPT OUT,"(errr)....whispering to themselves....we make enough money charging people with possession of marijuana(under 1 gram mind you, even just an old baggy with residue in it gets you a 5 night trip to county, 1 year probation, which you have to pay to be on ,drug classes..which u have to pay for...random screens..also $$$...oh and you lose you license for 6month's(even if you got arrested walking down the street and don't have a license or own a car), which then cost's money to re-instate, or if ur one who doesn't have a license., than one day when u get one it will be suspended for the first 6months, than u can reinstate it and pay again...LOL..this is all first offense, second gets you double everything...)... send em to jail(which are owned by the same judge that put u there) ...I don't condone drug use, I am against it....but come on. really? Now they do the same thing for DUI's, which I totally agree is fair, cuz that's operating a motor vehicle while F'ed up, and they give Child Molesters and Murders less time than they do drug dealers in my state...why?..... but states like Colorado(where u get a simple ticket for possesion up to 1 ounce of marijuana(IIRC), which is then prepayable...u don't even have to go to court, and is a lesser offense than speding in a car..is more likely to see poker.(I think)
So I am starting to think I will never see LEGAL online poker
, especially in my home state. Please someone tell me I am wrong, tell me I will play online legally?...because I haven't really read up on any of it for a while. AND I am no expert.
Sorry for rambling and if I broke any rules with my examples..a mod can delete my post I guess.
