For starters kids don't have debit cards. They legalized lottery and That's gambling. Problem is, the government can't profit from Internet gambling. That's why it isn't legal. They have no right to say what people do with their pay check. And no, I don't gamble.

Sure it should be legal along with a bunch of other things that are not a good idea such as marijuana, and 32 ounce sodas.

Why should government tell me what I can and cannot do on my internet connection ? For the record, I don't gamble.

That's my problem with it, how do you keep kids out of it, online. You can't

08/13/12 7:06 pm

Why would it be illegal? 1) no tax revenue. 2) bad for people. 1) fair tax! 2) Let people be responsible for there own actions!

08/13/12 5:43 pm

Yes legalize it and TAX THE HECK out of it to pay off the ridiculous national debt.

I personally hate to gamble, but I'm not a fascist like our politicians, so it should be 100% legal.

It should be legal if its legal in your state.

If you don't want a casino in your town from which you could collect revenue, why would you let people do it online and risk collecting NO money? We did this already with online gambling rooms based in the Cayman Islands.Guess what...They dont have to pay taxes and the $ are virtually untraceable.

If you don't like casinos for localized higher crime rates, legalize it- and if you're too dumb to know, we could use the money, tax that shizniz!

Oh yeah. Let people waste there own money, it won't effect you.

08/12/12 8:44 pm

I think people should be free to choose if they want to gamble or not.

I'm fine with Internet, or other, gambling, so long as gambler is licensed. Only purpose of license to be to disqualify gambler from receiving any sort of Welfare.

In general the Lottery is s tax on stupidity.

@kytoaltoky, taxes aren't voluntary. If they were then the govt could just get rid of the part saying "if you don't pay taxes, we lock you up in a steel cage like an animal." taxes are legalized theft, far from being voluntary.

08/12/12 5:31 pm

It's too hard to regulate

@kyo- how many people have no property, no income, AND don't buy anything? Besides children.

08/12/12 4:55 pm

Regular gambling should be legal.

08/12/12 4:28 pm

How about this: Lotteries "lure" money from primarily economically disadvantaged people. And taxes are voluntary in a way... If you don't have income, own property, or buy anything--boom! Tax Free!

@weda- taxes take. Lottery is voluntary. Words have meanings.

The lottery takes money from the poorer of us. When people are desperate, they like to dream. Dreaming gives hope. However, false hope is a lie that steals from the very people who need the money.

It should be legal but it saddens me that people are so desperate to "hit the big one" that they will risk everything.

I bet I can get you to want to gamble.

I'm not sure yet, but I'll come up with something.

JustinR makes a good point in that it widens the gap.

I refuse to pass judgment on people who gamble but I would not advise Internet gambling from a different perspective. I took the liberty to learn three programming languages: HTML, Java, and Python; and I can tell you first hand that as soon as you put any sort of currency online it's up for grabs.

08/12/12 2:21 pm

Internet gambling isn't legal?

08/12/12 2:07 pm

...and only widens the gap.

08/12/12 2:06 pm

Gambling causes people to go broke and only make the rich(owners of casinos,websites) richer. It's not good for our economy!

08/12/12 2:05 pm

That would hurt the family business

Gambling only hurts yourself. Since when was it the government's job to protect us from ourselves?
