Port Security Bill

So there I was early Saturday, enjoying my morning cup of coffee catching up my blog reading when I came across this post by Biggestron.   I was expecting something along the lines of details for the next WPBT circuit event, but instead I’m blindsided by news that they tacked the anti gambling bill onto the Port Security bill.  

I thought we had survived this congressional term unscathed as they had failed to pass the bill on its own, and similarly failed to attach it to the Defense Budget.  Instead Bill Frist (R. TN, and all around asshat) managed to sneak it into the Port Security bill. You know the bill they have been working on since 9/11 to help secure our country.   They couldn’t be bothered to include necessary items like securing our railroads, but securing us from the horrors that is online gaming, they had time for that.  Which is a good thing, because we all know how effective prohibition can be.  When’s the last time you heard of someone drinking in this country?  Oh wait, that’s right, it didn’t work out so well.  

WTF is Frist’s problem?  What an asshole.  I’m not apolitical or legal expert so I’m not going to comment any further just yet, but you should definitely check out the following posts for some interesting insight.
