Is this really what the president and congress need to be spending thier time on? I mean, it's not like we have a WAR going on, or 3 school shootings in a WEEK! But as long as those "evil" online gambling sites are shut down, well, doesn't that just amke you FEEEEEEL better? Aren't you blessed, citizen? Your government is taking care of you, and making your decisions for you. Better now?
You know, the worst part of this is the "reason" they're doing it. I'll give you three guesses and the first two don't count. I'll wait...

As conservatives, we're supposed to be against this stupid "nanny-state" type of legislation. I tell you, between this, Mark Foley, Dennis Hastert (don't let the door hit you where the good Lord split you, blowhole), and other assorted crap, I've had it with the Republican party. Is there no where for a REAL conservative to turn? I don't want any of these buttnozzles in power. I need to go soak my head.
