Quote Of The Day

by Brad Warbiany

Why we should go after the online poker vendors:

There are plenty of victims of (allegedly) illegal online poker, starting with the desperately-short-of-cash federal and state governments which are deprived of all the taxable revenue ($3 billion, say the feds) from the now-suspected operations. And just ask casino and horse racing executives what they think of the way online poker operators have taken advantage of Congressional fecklessness on the topic.

I can just imagine the response: “It cost a lot of good goddamn lobbying money to to set up these legal gambling monopolies, and now these poker sites want to get in on the action without ponying up the green? F’ em.”

Oh, that’s actually the response from Congress. My bad.
