    Damn Government taking my poker money that was in fulltilt because they didn't pay you enough under the table. GE and other fat cat corporation fucks don't have to pay their share in taxes cuz they pay 20 million a year to these corrupt politicians. The US is going downhill fast and people thinks it's the illegal immigrants or public services (that's a drop in the bucket). No it's cuz the media has our dumb down scared culture think Al Quada is going to blow up their home in Idaho. So they're too scared and brainwashed to see the real problem is the top %1 buying up everything and not giving back to the US. It's the industrial military complex and contractors making trillions off war and Big Pharma making a killing literally. Ok I'm done with my random rant, I'm just pissed people don't see that the biggest problem is money in politics. Back to IM

    So wait, US government is seizing the money or are you just referencing the fact that our money is currently locked, neither playable nor withdrawable?

    Not sure I want to go that far. I feel safer here than living around the Gaza strip or Somalia or Iran or Iraq. Every country has its corruption and there is not much that can be done about it, just do the best you can and move on with life.

    u right,im not defending criminals or money launders,im not even american the casino loby thing was just a gues wich could be easily true,but still the government should be able to control online gambling as this could make them a lots of taxmoney every year if done properly like in a lots of other counties

    The real reason they crack down on online poker is because the guberment has a stake in state run lottos. If you are spending your money at online poker then chances are you aren't buying lotto tickets. Less people buying lotto tickets means less revenue for the state. If you do play online poker still then I'd suggest going to a non-usa based poker site.

    Now you can see why the guberment has such a harsh stance on non-state, "approved" gambling. Its all about the money.

    i said FIRST world country. Compare the states to western europe or any first world power, it's not even close where it's better to live.

    You never see American media comparing standard of living or quality of life to better countries... it's always worse ones like somalia or iran or iraq. so then everyone thinks america is the best, which it's not.

    Article states nothing about what type of scheme they were running. The only thing the article states is the ALLEGATIONS of fraud by these poker sites.

    I agree and if you don't say America is the best place to live around here people think you're a trader or you hate America. I love America and think it started out with a great intentions overall. But it's going downhill and becoming more and more imbalanced everyday, where the richest of the rich keep all the money and the middle class fight for trickle down scraps. Ya it's not the worst place in the world to live but doesn't mean it's not getting way worse and needs to improve.

    Bingo! Let's stop giving the gestapo the benefit of the doubt for every act of tyranny they perform, simply because they always put forth a "we're catching criminals" canard to give their actions a figleaf of legitimacy. Let them PROVE to a jury somebody committed a real crime, and not accept their press release prosecutions on face value.

    You should come and live in England buddy. It will give the states a run for its money as the worst first world country. Things going on here that really are frightening and most of the public dont even know about it

    ive said it once, ill say it again...
    america - the best country to live in with the worst government.

    americans SPECIALLY make fun of french for being pussies, but i will tell you what,
    the french and many other counties people would NEVER tolerate the stuff americans do.
    hell, remember the french protesting at layoffs a few years ago!!
    americans are to lazy and cannot be bothered from their facebook and blackberries.
    just sit back idly as the country's goverment slowly sell it to china

    i was just saying to a friend yesterday, that some day, some crazy home grown shit is going to have to go down in order for this to change

    when they shut down jetset poker i got nothing back. they will shut down any poker site if it becomes big enough. ICE shut down 86,000 sites in "operation - save our children" in february, for . . . child pornography, which.... there was none. they can charge you with whatever they want, they know you wont take it to trial, you'll settle. everyone settles.

    well i guess ppl realize how the us really is IF they move there. no cheap healthcare, can-spam act, gambling gets you in jail, u dont need insurance but need prescription for contacts, old ass technology for the electricity network,awful public transportation(as oon as u get a lil out the city its done) inferior housing in general(of course you have top notch building etc.)and the paperwork might be less in a few things but not even that much than I thought. In the end it is not all that great. There is no perfect country as of yet and the US.

    So my opinion changed from all positive back in the days to the realistic point of view now that I have to put up with it.
