        I want to know why…

        I want to know why can’t we have the freedom to gamble where and how we want to. I can play at a land casino but I can’t gamble in the comfort of my home and I want to know why.

        I want to know why online poker is being considered for legalization but not sportbooks. Games of skill are more “acceptable” forms of gambling yet handicapping the odds in sports is not and I want to know why.

        I want to know why games of skill are ok but online casinos are not. Blackjack, Carribbean Poker and Pai Gow are games of skill but fall under casino gambling and is not an acceptable form of online gambling and I want to know why.

        I want to know why there is so much procrastination to legalize online gambling when it will bring in billions of dollars. The revenue made off of online gambling with the current defict would help, yet they won’t do it and I want to know why.

        I want to know why with unemployment at an all time high more jobs arent being created. Online gambling would employ thousands of people yet it’s not even a consideration and I want to know why.

        I want to know why we need a public vote for online gambling after the house has approved it in certain states. We didn’t get a public vote when it was banned in 2006 and I want to know why.

        I want to know why players funds have not been returned from not only the recent poker seizures but EwalletXpress. There is no reason it should take this long and I want to know why.

        Does anyone know, cuz i want to know why..............

        I'd guess it's politics, 'good ole boys' networking, and the almighty dollar that are behind most of that. 

        Those are all good questions!

        Again sorry for the double post, does the edit button disappear after a short period of time or am I wigging out?

        But...after reading through your post I had to reply because I agree with everything you just said.  They could solve gigantic budget problems by taking a small piece of the gambling pie.  There are race tracks that have poker and black jack that the government takes a piece of.  Lottery tickets can be bought on any street corner, they make a mint on that stuff.  Yet, I can't play a game of texas hold em online?  Its just crazy.  Hopefully something happens.  Great post.

        yes, the edit button does disappear - usually about a 30 minute timeline.  Maybe disappears sooner if someone quotes you or replies.  Not sure.

        There are many many ways our government could collect more money from us, and ways in which we are more than glad to participate!  Just look at how much they are taking in from medicinal marijuana in taxes: last time I checked over 11 million in Federal taxes and also they got state taxes as well.  Open up the 50 states!!!  Let Americans be Free At Last!  Why can't we pursue happiness as guaranteed in the constitution???
