George Will Just Doesn’t Get It

GeorgewillFamed conservative columnist and sex symbol George Will (at right) addresses, as he calls it (not our words), "Prohibition II" in this week’s Newsweek.

It seems that Will thinks Congress missed a valuable opportunity to regulate and tax online gambling, way over-stepped its bounds by governing personal liberties, and that prohibition in general never, ever works.

He also thinks that the "Government" passed this legislation as a way to protect local gambling interest, like state lotteries.

We thought Will was on our team. Guess not. Read Will’s incendiary article here.

    So, you don’t think Will is right in saying this internet gambling prohibition will ultiamtely be unsuccessful, and regulation of the industry will help online poker room? Seems weird.
