HR 2267 - Hells Yes!

In 2006 I posted a bit of a rant after our idiotic folks in DC passed a ban on Internet gambling. One diamond on a (capitol) hill of turds stood up and cried bullshit! Okay, his words were a bit more tame:

This Congress is well on the way to getting it absolutely backwards. In areas where we need to act together to protect the quality of our life, in the environment, in transportation, in public safety, we abstain; but in those areas where individuals ought to be allowed to make their own choices, we intervene. And that is what this is.

That was Barney Frank (D-MA), Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, the same man who is now pushing HR 2267, the effort to repeal that earlier idiocy and legalize Internet gambling. Come November, he's a keeper.

HR 2267 has passed committee, so please encourage your reps to support it when it reaches the floor for a vote. Do it. I miss my freerolls...
