It looks more and more like Fed legislation will fail and there will be some kind of intrastate system with jacked up rake set up, as in France, Italy, Spain, etc., with politicians looking at player pools like tax contributors . I don't really see the point of an intrastate system, except greed.

Online poker is being discussed on Capitol Hill and in statehouses across America. Let's keep demanding action on online poker licensing legislation:

- The online poker petition HERE has over 2500 signatures already! If you've not yet signed it, please do so. Let's all have our friends and family sign it too.

- Let's promote the petition via the NEW prefilled tweet HERE and by sharing the post HERE on our own Facebook walls. We have 103 tweets and 92 shares of the FB wall post already, so let's keep that growing!

- Let's send members of the House Committee on Homeland Security NEW tweets requesting inclusion of online poker licensing into the House version of the Cybersecurity Act: HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE. Let's also post to the committee's FB wall HERE.
- Let's send Sen. Reid, Sen. McConnell, Sen. Kyl, Rep. Boehner, and Rep. Cantor NEW tweets: HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.
- Let's ask President Obama for his response (a response he owes us) to the We the People poker question via the prefilled tweet HERE and on his Facebook walls HERE and HERE.

Please reply in this thread with signed', tweeted, done, etc.to encourage others to participate. The past 167 actions have generated triple-digit participation, and the past 1 action generated four-figure participation, so let's keep it growing. Thanks!

--------------

If you wish to do more today, please consider posting pro-poker comments to some the Facebook walls of some the mainstream media HERE and some potentially anti-poker lawmakers HERE. We can't do them all at once, of course, but let's all try to hit three of these each day.

the only shining light is that the Feds can and do stomp over state sovereignty all the time (think marijuana dispensary raids).
