Yeah, it was owned by everyone but the US because of our damn conservative leaders. When taxing and regulation are the key to this. Banning it did nothing for our economy, when we could have had them right here in the US. Governments are the largest businesses in the world yet our's run's like a damn mom and pop shop; maybe 'cause we got a good 'ole boy in the office.

Probably, more likely because the big money boys who own the Federal Reserve told them what to do, just like they have since they shot Lincoln.

Re: Gambling- the UK moves forward as America steps back!

Note that the US did not to make online gambling illegal per se, they simply made it illegal for US financial institutions to process payment requests from gambling websites.

If you live in the US and you can manage to get a credit card / paypal account from some european country, then you can still legally gamble online as far as I have understood it.

Still, in practice, this had a quite immediate effect.

I play all the time. Online poker rooms actually got bigger when usa clamped down on the banks because they were forced to expand into other markets.

Every week they have a big tourney with 7-8,000 players and out of the top 9 finishers about 7 are from the USA.
