U.S. Congress Shuts the Doors of Internet Casinos

I can't lie. I'm almost happy that Congress passed a law preventing all major credit cards, and banks from accepting transactions from online gambling sites. I say "almost happy" bacause I'm not happy. This is because:

  1. I already have a dad. I neither need, nor want congress to play "daddy" and tell me what's right and wrong; what is trash, and what is golden.
  2. Congress is in no position to preach what is right and wrong. I don't think this point needs any further clarification.
  3. Call me a cynic, but I think their motives were not entirely Christian in passing this bill.
  4. Call me cold, but if you prevent someone from f#cking up their life with online gambling, they'll probably just go on to find another way to f#ck up their life. The personality type that bets their children's college fund on a blackjack hand probably has bigger problems than "gambling addiction".

On the otherhand, I'm happy congress gave them a good ass wooping... I am happy because I fight spam every day. These gambling sites were as bad as online pharmacies, and grotesque pornographers when it comes to filling my comment box with 8 spams (all of which are vulger...) every minute. If as a business, you choose to spam, I will mark your downfall with a moment of joy. Sadly, in some ways, my enemy congress, is kind of my friend. I'm not going to cry foul on congress... even though I hate them. And my reasoning goes no deeper than those thousands of comments titled 'online poker', 'texas holdem', etc. etc. etc. I have a feeling I'm not alone.
