What a Crock of Shit

The U.S. is fighting a terrorism war on two fronts, gas could be headed for $4 a gallon, Mike Cooper is a free man but saw on The Wizard of Odds that federal authorities have instead decided to make the world a safer place by arresting CEO of BetOnSports.com, an Internet gambling site.

As I alluded to in my title, what a crock of shit. Are we really wasting federal resources on this sort of thing?!

Thanks to the The Wiz for the tip!

Could you explain how the federal resources that caught this lawbreaker could be utilized to do something about $4 gallon gas?

And, while you're at it, could you make a list of the laws you want enforced, and which you want unenforced?

I'm all for suggestions on how to correct inefficiency in our government, but to want federal prosecutors and the FBI to solve gasoline prices is a real crock of shit.

Oh yea, Fuck Michigan.

Now I am guitly of giving these guys some grief from time to time on their inability to layoff the Woodrow Hayes bashing...I mean commentary, but your shot across the bow on this topic is just unnecessary and could be considered plain ol' crazy talk. I live out near Seattle and my "per gallon" price hasn't dipped below $3.00, since I moved out here. It would be really nice top know that our tax-driven federal funds weren't being spent on issues that seem trivial with our current state of affairs within the country. But I digress...

As CEO of beatyourmeatinthelibrary.com, I truly don't have a problem with this turn of events.

Online gambling does nothing to bring about the seediness that physical casinos do. It is not our government's business to protect people from stupidity.

In fact, our government doesn't, it is just entirely hypocritical about the situation. Look at state-run lotteries — just a huge tax on stupid people.
