    Alright ladies and gentlemen, its starting to happen and as always, us Americans sit by and watch it happen and say nothing. Where will this end?
    Microgaming casinos are among the most popular of online casinos in the U.S. Market. Soon, other groups will follow and soon, there will not be any safe and trustworthy casinos for us to play. Sure, there will be other casinos that will remain open but i guarentee, there will NOT be many that i would trust putting my money into. Here at Bonus Paradise, we only promote the most trustworthy and most reliable casinos on the net. Microgaming casinos in my opinion, are far by the best, and soon, Americans will no longer be able to play.

    Its time that the online gamblers of this great nation take a stand and do whatever you can to protect our rights in this matter. Why should the government be able to say how and where we are allowed to spend our money, Especially when they have not many concerns on how they spend our tax money? If we simply sit back and watch all of this unfold and never speak our voice or let our voices be heard, then eventually there will no longer be any online gambling for Americans.

    Write letters, send emails, and make phone calls to your local and state congressmen demanding there be a change in slowly taking away American freedoms from citizens of our country. If no one does nothing, then nothing will be done.​

    i emailed my congressman, and i received a reply back. i was informed he is neither against online gambling or for it! also he stated, he would be open minded and consider being for it!!!

    :socool: i totally agree, we all need to stand up and tell'em online gambling should be legal
    and the gov. should monitor, maybe make it safter and better!!! just my opinion

    :thank you: luvslots

    Thanks D for this post.

    Come on members, it's time we did something.

    Even if you are from outside the USA, your support is
    needed. If our Government realizes how many this affects
    maybe we can do something.​

    have unfortunate news to report. Despite the efforts of the poker community, the opposition of the banks and the recent news exposing inappropriate influence by the White House, today the current administration finalized the UIGEA regulations to be made effective on January 19th the day before president-elect Obama officially takes office. A copy of the final UIGEA regulations and the PPA’s response can be found on our Web site.

    I am sure that you share my outrage over this last-minute "midnight rulemaking," but I have not lost my drive to correct this injustice and I call on you to join me and the million strong PPA to help continue our fight. In fact, the Politico Newspaper reports on 11/12 that Congressional leaders are already plotting legislation for next year that will undermine the White House's "midnight" regulations. We must make sure that UIGEA is part of this regulation reversal.

    There are 4 things you should do to respond to the government's actions:

    1. Call your Member of Congress and let him or her know how disappointed you are by the lame duck administration's implementation of UIGEA and subsequent erosion of your personal freedom.

    2. Send an email to the Obama Transition team and tell President-elect Obama that once in office he should immediately turn back the UIGEA and other "midnight rules" issued by President Bush.
    3. Help the PPA help you. Become a Premium Member of PPA if you are not already. For only $20 you help us be effective advocates for poker and your membership put us in a strong position to defend your rights. If you are already a Premium PPA member please consider making an additional contribution to our fight.

    4. Forward this to your friends and stay updated on the latest developments regarding the UIGEA regulations.

    This is not the time to bow our heads in defeat; rather we must continue our efforts with renewed vigor. Thank you for your support and dedication to protecting the game we love.

    Proud to play,
    Alfonse D'Amato, Chairman
    Poker Players Alliance

    As i have been saying, if you do not send letters,emails, or phone calls to your local congressman, then this is what happens. it gets to the point that soon, it will be too late to do anythnig, and everyone that sat back and watched this unflod and never tried to speak on behalf of your interests, then its your fault. Its every Americans fault for not taking a stand against the government that just keeps taking rights and freedoms away from Americans.

    You know, this government was designed to work for the people,

    not the people work for the government or the government work for their own agenda's.

    So, when did that change?​
