You say you want a revolution?

Because it's not like they have anything more important to worry about these days, our legislators are sticking the screws to online gambling sites:

Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a measure 317-93 to make it illegal for banks and credit card companies to make payments to online-gambling sites. The House bill was part of a package of 10 items - known as the "American values agenda" - that the conservative wing of the Republican-controlled House made a priority. The 10 issues include gay marriage and flag burning.

Ok then, let's talk values. (My favorite excerpt: Republican Party Chairman Sam Walls,who is married, was urged to drop his candidacy for Congress when it was found he likes to dress up in women's clothing).
