Our Big Brother Bush thinks it is his place to tell us what to do

I found this article in the Buffalo News. It tells us how the U.S. ban on internet gambling is bound to be compared to how Prohibition worked in the 1920s. Oh yeah, that's right. Prohibition did not work. The ban on alcohol drove people to speakeasies and other underground places. And this new bill will do the same.
There is an answer to this phenomenon. That answer is to legalize online gambling. Let the states and the federal government collect taxes from this lucrative market, the same way they do alcohol sales. The taxes collected from this practice could go to help our rather antiquated and outdated education system. About half of the people who gamble online are from the U.S. anyway. Bush and his religious right cronies are missing out on a great taxation opportunity for our government.
They do this on the basis that they think they know what is the best for the rest of the country, these self-rightreous conceited fools who were themselves born with silver spoons in their mouths. These are the same people who make their money from the other lifeblood of this country. And that would be oil. Every time you put gasoline in your tank, you put money in their pockets. But of course, they never seem to mind when we do that. The oil industry controls everything in this country.
The oil compnanies want you to buy that huge gas guzzler suv that you don't really need. They know that automakers can make vehicles that can get 100 mpg. They are only worried about their bottom line, the money that flows into their pockets.
And yet, they don't want us spending our money on online gambling in offshore markets? The only reason that they care is that the money spent on these casinos isn't going into their coffers.
