"Poker: Last month, the Department of Justice shut down five major online poker sites, seizing their domain names, issuing arrest warrants for executives and seeking billions of dollars in asset forfeiture. One defendant faces jail time of up to 65 years for helping people play cards over the Internet."

You probably believe this since you are obsessed with right wing web sites. Here is the truth if that interests you:

The founders of the three largest online poker sites were indicted on Friday in what could serve as a death blow to a thriving industry.

"Eleven executives at PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, Absolute Poker and a number of their affiliates were charged with bank fraud and money laundering in an indictment unsealed in a Manhattan court.
'These defendants concocted an elaborate criminal fraud scheme, alternately tricking some U.S. banks and effectively bribing others to assure the continued flow of billions in illegal gambling profits,” Preet Bharara, the U.S. attorney in Manhattan, said in a statement.'

Yeah - it figures that you wouldn't believe in the principle of "innocent until proven guilty." When so many other aspects of our system of government do not appeal to you - why would that part?
