From the first paragraph:
[Begin excerpt] ...the bottom line: there's a very good chance
California gets legalized online poker within the next year. The state
has huge budget deficits, needs money from any available source, and
there's a good drive to get a bill going this year, so the end result
is that there will be a push made to get an intrastate bill through
the legislature - and it's got a good chance of passing. [end excerpt]

I don't see anything unreasonable about this kind of speculation.
Sure, you can't bet money on it, but it makes a good starting point
for a more generalized discussion.

Frankly, I see the issue as one of libertarians versus control
freaks. I'm what many here call a right-wing extremist, and I have
strong conservative social values. I see prostitution and
homosexuality (among other issues) as great moral evils. But I don't
think that these particular issues, nor gambling, are properly the
concerns of authoritarian government.

I remember when Florida voters were aghast (!) at the prospect of a
state lottery, but now that we have it--- and Lotto is STATE-SPONSORED-
GAMBLING for crying out loud--- I can't understand the moral need for
the state to over-regulate card rooms and casinos.

In FL, the difference-maker was that people were persuaded that the
lottery would benefit a good cause, like education. It has not, but
that was the difference-maker. In CA, as cities go bankrupt, I think
that there will be stronger consideration of tax revenues from
legalized gambling.

Judging only from that first paragraph, I don't see any need to call
anyone a moron, except (maybe) those who smugly hurl such epithets.

sounds like another moron trying to make something TRUE simply by saying
it . Quite similar to the morons here who think it is legal to gamble
online in the United Sates. They think by manufacturing semantical
loopholes ,that it sounds legal

IT IS NOT AND WILL NOT BE

And no one hopes we get back the "super sucker " TVSM's more than I do .

Holy crap, that's pretty much the definition of the 7th level of Hell
isn't it?

I'd rather play 1 cent/2 cent Razz with wildcards and a $5 rake for
the rest of my life.

UIGEA contained specific language allowing intrastate online gambling, if
the state so decided. I have not actually heard anything about California
passing any such law (which woud only be Californians playing against
other Californians), but it is ok by UIGEA. Personally, I don't see that
happening any time soon.

As for it being illegal in the US, you haven't produced a single shred of
evidence for your position.

Party poker looses millions every day because they are not permitted to
operate in the United Sates

THAT IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME

You've been shown evidence and refuse to accept it.

I didn't find your argument convincing, but I'll give you credit for
putting forward something at least, certainly more than fangbanger.

So in other words you have no clue who Adanthar is, what his ties are into
the poker world and US govt, and what he's already done? You could have
just said so.

The more you write, the more ignorant you become. It's like every time
you post something to RGP you lose an IQ point.

Fact is, while you may know a bunch of useless shit about some old fuckers
playing poker 40 years ago, you know nothing about poker today. Go answer
some more of your puppet's trivia questions or something.
