Ah Crap Part 2  

Posted by Alex Laforest in

Well, I'm just not that savvy in law lingo and all that twisted logic, so it's still pretty fuzzy, to me anyway :P, but it seems the boorish americans are at it again. Speaking of the famous infamous Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA), which seems to have gone through at long last... Someone said Bush gang's getting restless about moving out of the White House?!?!?! lol

Anyway, for now, it's not that big a deal for me, considering I am a boorish Canadian... But it is nonetheless very worrying, since our stupid Prime Minister is a definite Bush-wannabe... And did some sneaky stuff like Bush's gang did with stappling this UIGEA to another, undisputed bill (SAFE Port Act); Stephen Harper did indeed learned from the Bush administration (cf. C-10 Bill).

But still, this morning, I feel the pond is waaaaayy smaller :S...

2+2 Apocalyptic Thread here.
Somewhat positive piece here.



The optimist in me believes Obama will uno a lot of wongdoings from the last administration.

The realist understands that the US needs the revenue regulation would generate.

The killer instinct in me isn't very strong and I am concerned that in the current crisis, those that can least afford it will join the 95% of losing players.

Bush has a lot to answer for ...

same optimism AND realistic take on it... Not really sure what you mean about the less fortunate players though... But, bottom line is, yes Bush has lots to answer for AND those 11th hour rushed legistlations should simply not be allowed imo... Funny how it got finalized right after Obama won...
