    Seems like a wise idea. After all, I gamble on-line all the time and since it's "illegal" I don't pay taxes on any winnings.

    Why not? We already use the lottery to fund social programs.

    USMB will suffer if this is passed. Most of us will spend our time gambling away our paychecks instead of solving the world's problems.

    I don't have a problem with online gambling. Hell, twenty fucking years ago Missouri introduced casinos on our rivers under the concept that waterways were not necessarily in state. Now, we have casinos that build moats around drydocked "boats" in order to comply to retarded fucking legislative hoops. Personally, I think that gambling is a Tax on the Stupid but.. hey.. whatever, uh.. floats yer boat.

    I support stupid taxes. With the exception of those deemed genetically challenged, stupid people need to pay more in taxes.

    This is precisely why we need to legalize mj and tax the shit out of it. I'm also pro-lottery, pro-gambling, pro-prostitution, and pro-cigarette taxes.

    Or USMB could install a poker room where we all get to debate each other while I kick all of your asses with a 2-6 off suit in Texas Hold 'Ems.

    Are you pro-crack, pro-heroine and pro-murder as well?
