Arrow WEDNESDAY POKER ACTION PLAN: Let's tell Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) & 8 others to back poker

**** Wednesday #Fight4Poker ****

Let's send pro-poker tweets to six Senate Judiciary Committee members, either with the prefilled verbiage as-is or individualized via a quick edit. Verbiage can be as simple as copying & pasting one of the following examples, but try to edit even these a bit:
- Please oppose legislation that shuts down state-authorized poker websites. Thank you. #TenthAmendment
- For consumer protection, mandated age verification & personal liberty, please support state-licensed poker websites.
- Congress rejected a ban on instate online poker in '06. RAWA restores nothing. It's an all new ban. #OpposeRAWA.

My plan is to update this daily with actions we can take. I'll change the thread title daily, of course, as it's updated.

I recorded a new video today with an update on the poker rights fight, plus some Q&A. It's at www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGZ0ZqBMJGA.

No difference. Users can add their own poll questions.

I think it is telling that every post on Bill Frist's page that asks him if he received money from Harrahs has been deleted and posters of these messages blocked. Guess the senator is ashamed of his behavior and refuses to own up to it. Since he represents Tennessee it is up to you voters to get him out of there.
When the link is followed (not logged in) it is sad because I know they are deleting poker related post. The only poker related one they left, when the page is first opened, is the one that makes us all sound like uniformed idiots, see above, since of course Frist retired in 07. Followed the link earlier today and there were 2 other post beneath it that made our standard solid points and now they are both gone.

You can expand and see the poll and such but makes me wonder how much editing is being done and makes me sad that they are pretending to give the public a voice and opinions be heard but really its only to serve their own purposes.

Re: Fight for poker rights: Friday, May 13th

I have no free time and I'm still willing to pitch in. The government freezing my money and telling me that I can't play cards is unacceptable.
