About backhanded legislative morons...

It's a sad thing that our US legislature has to resort to backhanded politics to try to stop online gambling! In the WEE hours saturday morning, they attached a bill to another TOTALLY UNRELATED bill, to do just this!

The bill that was ORIGINALLY put forth was the SAFE PORT ACT. Here is a brief description of what it was SUPPOSED to be for:
"...to improve maritime and cargo security through enhanced layered defenses..."

There is a copy of the port bill as passed and can be found at the following URL http://saveonlinegaming.com/hr49543.pdf. The portion of the bill relating to online gambling begins on page 213, and runs from there to the end of the bill on page 244 - so it totals 32 pages in length.

The senator behind this was Bill First. He intends to run for President in 2008.... lets be sure to tell him and others like him what we think of this BULLSHIT!
