House sub committie on Online Poker December 10th 2013
I saw this video on "Federal online Legislation in the US, Do you think it will ever happen?" thread and I thought it deserved its own thread..
This video was first posted by "curtinsea"
This video only has 1500 views this is not enough they need to see much more lol
The following is copy and pasted comments that I posted in the above thread mentioned. So to mods sorry for the double post..
Currently watching it... It is kind of making me upset though because every time some one who is against online poker talks I want to be able to correct the BS that comes out of their mouths...
The one guy was talking like Online poker would kill casinos
because our phones would become casinos.. Ummm no this is a Poker bill, your revenue does not come from poker if anything Online poker will get more people in to your casinos..
The other guy is against gambling 100% talked about slots
for 80% of his opening statement said things like "you have no chance of winning" Umm noo... Poker is a game of skill and this is a poker bill not a slots bill...
I think the Guy from Texas
said it best "God is for this poker bill" lol
I wish I could go in there an be like "Chairman, what does the United States of America symbolize? Freedom, Yet if Americans want the freedom to play Online poker we have to move to Canada
"We are going to play online poker no matter what just like people use to drink alcohol no matter what the law was/is.. The government can either hop on board and make money and have the economy flourish or get left behind and let us keep spending our money on off shore black market sites."
Also Love how they say Online poker is bad and is taking it to far when they have the following for their Casinos..
^^ Allows people to play every game (except poker) online from inside the Casino or in reach of the Wifi, it also allows people to use Sports book any where from Nevada..
So let me get this straight.. Online gambling bad... except when they are making money off of it... ?
