I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on what to include or not to include.
I'm planning on talking about the possible tax "benefits" (to non-gamblers) as well as the possibility of money coming to the U.S. from out of the country if online casinos based in the U.S. were allowed to open, as opposed to money going out of the country to online casinos based elsewhere in the world. I will also talk about how it seems to be an invasion of privacy and an restriction of our rights as a consumer. I also plan to talk about how many states have lotteries or casinos within their state's borders, and how it is not right to restrict online business.
Does anyone have any other ideas on topics to include? I will definitely be talking about Frank's bill in congress as well.
how about (no kidding):
1. internet gambling is NOT illegal, only unlawful gambling is covered by UIGEA
2. cite legal gambling examples (AOl, MSN, YAHOO! games a start, see the cash ones there
Then state why poker should be included as well as "other" gambling along with the legal U S gambling online.
