President Signs Unlawful Internet Gambling Act

Postby ChuckNorrisHorn on Fri Oct 13, 2006 10:57 am

Bush Really Signed the Safe Port Act with Unlawful Internet Gambling Act
President Bush today signed the port security bill that also included legislation to limit the ways online poker fans can deposit money into their favorite accounts.

The official name of the bill is the Safe Accountability for Every Port Act of 2006. On the last Friday in September, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist worked into the night to get the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGE) attached to the port act. Congress passed the act nearly unanimously in the last vote before an extended election-year recess.

Earlier that week, Frist tried to get the UIGE attached to a major defense spending bill, but both Republican and Democrats spoke out against this action because of the importance of the defense spending bill.

Several online sites, including PartyPoker and 888.com, said they will stop allowing real-money players located in America to play on its sites after Bush signed the bill.

Other sites like PokerStars, Absolute Poker, Bodog and Full Tilt said they will still do business with Americans in the U.S. even after Bush signed the bill into law

Btw, interpoker.net or something allows private rooms.


Get Kevin and Robert if he wants to play. Let's roll.
why don't you run back to the sandbox where the rest of the kids are playing so the adults can have a discussion...it's over there....you see Howie, he's over there with PMS knocking over other kids sandcastles...looks like fun.

first of all, unless we played them all at once, you can start shining up your second place trophy

no one plays no limit omaha tournaments...delete that

Just because you play 5 cent/10 cent razz with donkeys who 3 bet you with a king in the window doesnt bring you to reality

First of all, it was $1-$2, it was 4 bets, and a PAIR of Kings showing...

And in all of this, you forget the Perfect Skill I utilized in taking down the pot.
