BlackFriday, 3 years later, part 1...

     3 years since ‪#‎BlackFriday‬ when they banned some of the best poker sites from the United States, supposed Land of the Free! Those casinos with deep pockets, and our messed up lobbyist political system sure have strung things out far longer than they should ever have been able to do so.
     I've lost a fair number of bets about how long this would go on, but luckily never bet cash on them. I'm not into sports betting, gambling vs the house edge in a casino, etc....
     I play poker vs other PEOPLE, in the American game of Poker (TEXAS Hold'em, Omaha, Razz, California LowBall, and others) .. based on luck of the draw, but with the math of odds, return on investment vs risk, and the skill reading people and patterns ... much the same as Day Traders or investors in the business world.
     I have a preference of staying right here in the US, but if legislation isn't sorted out this year in favor of the popular American sentiment of returning our freedom to play poker, then this is the year I am likely headed across the border, either south or north, to continue to play poker.
     I have moved across our country for work before for a better job, rather than staying local for a lesser job, and I will do the same for Poker.
     You will see the billionaire Sheldon Adelson,http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheldon_Adelson, lobbying for "stop internet gambling" , as he is Chairman and CEO of the Las Vegas Sands, and has a vested material interest in keeping as much of gambling within his brick and mortar casinos as possible, for monetary gain.
Don't buy into the ‪#‎HYPOCRITICAL‬ "hype" of protecting the American people from online gambling, the exact same thing his casinos provide offline.

    But when you do see just how much he is able to influence so many political people in our country, DO be aware of how messed up our current lobbyist political has become.
    And then, share your voice! In this day and age, you cannot be silenced or ignored, thanks to modern technology. Share your opinion. You have the right to by the First Ammendment in this country.. if this IS still the United States of America ..http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution
