Online Poker as "Tax Fairness"
Personally, I don't care what you call it ... just legalize it. (We are reportedly talking about an extra $40-50 billion in tax revenue over the next 10 years.)
The history of poker is the subject of some debate. One of the earliest known games to incorporate betting, hand rankings, and bluffing was the 15th century German game Pochspiel. Poker closely resembles the Persian game of As Nas, though there is no specific description of nas prior to 1890. In the 1937 edition of Foster's Complete Hoyle, R. F. Foster wrote: "the game of poker, as first played in the United States, five cards to each player from a twenty-card pack, is undoubtedly the Persian game of as nas." By 1990s some gaming historians including David Parlett started to challenge the notion that poker is a direct derivative of As Nas.

The recent scandals with Pokerstars and Fulltilt Poker just prove once again that the government is not interested in promoting democracy in the US. The government officials complained about China not respecting international business that also operate in China. Guess what the US government did: they did not respect international businesses that operate on US soil as well.
