Default North Korea to enter online gambling business

I wonderif the morons in the US Attorney's office of the SOuthern District of NY intend to indict the President of North Korea and other high ranking officials. This is one country where things don't get done without approval from the top.
We're going to need a lot of rope after the revolution.

Am still a little amazed Mexico is not a gambling haven.
In 1998 the Department of Justice brought charges under the Wire Act against 22 American citizens involved in managing foreign-based sites. "You canít hide online," Janet Reno, the attorney-general, warned Internet betting operators, "and you canít hide offshore."

Actuary, glad to see you back from your posting vacation. With you and Scott Landau back, the forum is better. It makes no sense to me that Mexico is not a gambling mecca, unless the top politicians are being bought off--perhaps by Las Vegas money--to prevent it from happening.

the NK's had better be careful. weapons of mass destruction will be tolerated by the U.S., offshore gambling won't.

Railbird, do you play the John Calipari tape in your car when you drive down to TJ? FYI, Mexico doesn't run Caliente. Caliente runs Caliente, and they are a bunch of f------- Mexican idiots.

It is my understanding that Mexican governments that have considered land-based gaming in the past have felt a lot of negative pressure from the Catholic church within Mexico. I once represented the only casino company that I know of that has a signifcicant (10% or so) shareholding by the church. It is my understanding that to this day they believe this will help them when/if Mexico issues RFPs for larger scale land based casinos. I always got a real kick out of this.

You are absolutely correct read that article and then think about why you were indicted and it makes ZERO sense.
Buzz, I dont go to games. I buy all the Directv packages and watch them from the comfort of my own home! I dont like listening to all the fans nonsense at games! I pay for blonde women to come over and have sex with my hispanic hottie maid, and sometimes I get involved to make it a threesome! I like to lay in my pool during the day sipping on drinks that have umbrellas!
