Support online poker!!!!

I am a proud contributing member of the Poker Players Alliance which is a lobbying group to legalize online poker which has unfairly been lumped in with other games of random chance (like blackjack, craps, roulette, etc). Nevermind that lottery and horse racing are still legal. I mean if there's skill involved in scratching that lottery ticket or using that ridiculously short pencil at 7-eleven to fill in the dots next to the number you want, well, then I'm obviously unaware. Well, that said, this is the letter I received two days ago. Please, for the very few that stop by this blog to read what I have to say and play online poker, read on and make your voice be heard! Oh and this happens to be post #100! I can't believe I've written so many posts pretty much since the first of the year. Good stuff.

Dear Fellow PPA Member:

I have wonderful news to report! On Thursday, April 26, Rep. Barney Frank introduced HR 2046, the Internet Gambling Regulation and Enforcement Act of 2007. HR 2046 will lift the prohibition on playing poker online. Your efforts are making a difference!

Representative Frank is the Chairman of the important House Financial Services Committee. And he understands the injustice that we have suffered. When he introduced the bill, he told reporters that “The existing legislation is an inappropriate interference on the personal freedom of Americans and this interference should be undone”.

But he can’t do this job alone. Now, we need to help Congressman Frank build support for his bill.

You can regain your right to enjoy safe, secure online poker – but only if you stand up for your rights. And PPA is here to help you do just that.

This is a landmark day for freedom. But it is only the first step of the process. Join me in celebrating this milestone – and take action to build support for HR 2046.
