Arrow FRIDAY POKER ACTION PLAN: Tell NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo to back poker

**** Friday #Fight4Poker ****

• Let's send prefilled, editable tweets to six governors:
► New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo: http://spredd.it/0a1f20ey
► New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (action): http://spredd.it/r6UaRAgf
► Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin: http://spredd.it/d1e0m766
► South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley: http://spredd.it/I7s2M069
► South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard: http://spredd.it/Dyb3N8L3
► Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam: http://spredd.it/L8ccHQ5n
► Texas Gov. Greg Abbott: http://spredd.it/cg3cdd3a
► DAP Tweet: http://spredd.it/kbaWcIa0

• Let's keep making & liking pro-poker tweets in reply to a tweet from MO state Rep. Scott Fitzpatrick (R). Rep. Fitzpatrick is proposing legislation to exempt daily fantasy sports from Missouri gaming law. This can be as simple as, “Poker is an honorable game of skill.”, “I agree with the pro poker tweets. We should authorize online poker, not ban it,” etc.:

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.
