On the right is a videotaped debate from CNBC on whether legalizing online gambling is a good idea. Sorry about the commercial!
The reason I'm posting it is because I
found it rather entertaining. There's a guy named Les Bernal, (the bald dude)from
Stop Predatory Gambling and
when he's done with his rant, the CNBC announcer actuallykind of makes a little
fun of him,asking him if a PR firm came
up with the name "predatory" gambling
("you make it sound like like "child
porn," he says at one point)
Later he starts questioning his statistics
saying it sounds as if he just made
them up off the top of his head.
When Les (the bald dude) says
he got the statistics from a study done
in Canada, the announcer actually says,
"Avoid Canada Joke Here". Funny stuff.
He then goes on to tell the bald dude
that he's so extreme and that his
"bible toting" is hurting his case.
The only case I can make is that "Les is NOT more." As I said, this is some pretty funny stuff...especially considering it's on CNBC and not YouTube.com
For those unaware, on Wednesday Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., introduced a bill to legalizeInternet gambling. I think it's H.R. 2268. Harrah's today said it supports it. So did MGM. Oh, and YouBet.com too. Surprise!Supporters say it could yield billions in taxrevenue, but others say it could raise gambling addiction. What are your views? As always, feel free to comment.
