The War on Online Gambling

In Washington, it’s now a felony (yes, a felony – $10K fine and five years in pound you in he ass prison) to gamble online. Seems there’s always someone, somewhere who’s pissed that someone else might be having a good time.

    Note too that it was passed by a “progressive” Blue state.

    Spent some time in western Washington a few weeks ago. There were hippies everywhere.

    No, it’s more like the local mini-casinos (we can’t have full sized ones), card rooms, and Indian tribes don’t like computer geeks living in the Bahamas horning in on their profit margins.

    The bill’s two main sponsors both got sizable campaign contributions from the tribes with the two biggest casinos in the state.

    Always follow the money.
