    Shit like this just makes my blood boil. The government of this beloved country of ours just gets everything ass backwards, don't they?

    I did not know Drew had a video blog or whatever this is called. I will keep up with it now. He for one seems a voice of reason to me.

    Thanks for posting this link Catrina. :thumbsup:

    crap like this just pisses me off:mad:my hubby is a V.F.W member and at our post they did come in several years ago and had all the poker machines pulled out. i just think this is wrong with all the great works the V.F.W does for vets. the money that the police took from the poker machines was to be used for homeless vets at christmas. im outraged as an american!!

    Well at least now we know why the "raid" occurred, they wanted film footage for a reality TV show...

    Players fear that the crackdown on poker won't stop at city borders, but spread throughout the state as long as Texas outlaws the games where the house gets a percentage of the pot.

    "It's a shame," said Michalski, a poker blogger, player and editor of pokerati.com. "It's not like the people running these rooms are getting rich. A lot of people in good rooms are just trying to provide a service. What's wrong with them being able to pay the rent, buy food, with the money?
