  12. James MacMillan Says:

    I am beyond outraged, I work like a donkey, I have since I was 14 years old. I have worked 2 and 3 jobs at a time, I pay my taxes, I obey the law and have taught my 3 children to do the same, At the age of 53 I have the absolute right to log on to favorite poker site and play for as much or as little money as I want. Many thousands of brave men and women have served and died to protect the freedoms that Americans enjoy. This is unacceptable. I have to believe that the money and man power spent on this nonsense could have been used more wisely. I am sending money to the PPA and contacting all of my reps in Massachusetts and in DC to voice my outrage.
