How Many Americans Are Happy W/ Obama’s „all-in” Poker Stance W/ The Future Of America At Stake?

In poker, there’s a maneuver called „all-in,” in which a player pushes all his chips to the center of the table in one big bet.
By that standard, President Barack Obama is conducting an all-in presidency.
The big bet is Mr. Obama’s first budget, which he has spent this week selling hard, from closed rooms on Capitol Hill to open forums on the Internet. It’s an all-in policy statement.
The budget attempts to launch at the outset most of the big policy initiatives the president has in mind for his term. It has money for a new health plan, envisions a cap-and-trade system for limiting so-called greenhouse gases, invests big money in alternative energy, and continues the flow of dollars into education started in the economic-stimulus package.
Its sweep is striking, which cheers Obama partisans who want bold strokes. But it also is a real gamble. It has scared some important constituencies, including moderate Democrats who fear the deficits it could create, and business backers such as Warren Buffett, who worry its broad ambitions will divert attention from core economic problems. It has drawn new attention to deficits, united Republicans in opposition, and made it easier for critics to paint the president as a traditional big-spending liberal.

Are African Americans The Top Athletes In History?

A Cultural Question For All 18 To 21 Year Old Americans.?

Being outside the USA at 18 we all can legally drink and purchase alcohol in bars, pubs, clubs, casinos, restaurants, cafes, live concerts, raves, dance party’s, sporting venues and on airplanes, cruise ships and trains etc.
Also we can legally gamble at casinos, gaming clubs and bars, also punt on horse and dog races and sports bets and buy lottery tickets.
As we can work in these industries, while we are going to university or globally traveling and backpacking in foreign countries.
Since the USA is the only free society country in the world, which has 21 year old drinking and gaming laws.
All 18-21 year old global tourists immediately loose these freedoms once the enter to the USA.
So I’m wondering, what alternative dose the USA offer 18-21 year old Americans and global tourist venue wise, since they can’t legally purchase alcohol, drink or gamble ?
Also do, 18-21 year old Americans work in these alcohol serving and gaming industries. To gain work experience to go global traveling, and obtain employment in a foreign country ?

How Are Americans Going To Pay For All Palin’s Lobbyist Friends?

I thought Abramoff just got sentenced to five years in jail. Why didn’t his cohorts get thrown in the slammer, too? Oh… I guess Sarah found them jobs.
Sarah Palin’s Lobbyists
Palin may not yet be as notorious as the influence peddlers in Washington, but she?s working to fit right in. She?s surrounded herself with associates of Jack Abramoff and Ted Stevens?some of the biggest names in the corruption game?and scored huge pork for Alaska in the process. With cronies like those, Sarah Palin and John McCain have a lot in common.
Palin didn?t buck Alaska?s Republican culture of corruption, she hired it.
Lobbyist Hired By Palin Secured $27 Million In Federal Earmarks for 6,700-Person Town.
?Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin employed a lobbying firm to secure almost $27 million in federal earmarks for a town of 6,700 residents while she was its mayor, according to an analysis by an independent government watchdog group?As mayor of Wasilla, however, Palin oversaw the hiring of Robertson, Monagle & Eastaugh?an Anchorage-based law firm with close ties to Alaska’s most senior Republicans: Rep. Don Young and Sen. Ted Stevens, who was indicted in July on charges of accepting illegal gifts. The Wasilla account was handled by the former chief of staff to Stevens, Steven W. Silver, who is a partner in the firm?According to a review of congressional spending by Taxpayers for Common Sense, a nonpartisan watchdog group in Washington, Wasilla did not receive any federal earmarks in the first few years of Palin’s tenure. Senate records show that Silver’s firm began working for Palin in early 2000, just as federal money began flowing?All told, Wasilla benefited from $26.9 million in earmarks in Palin’s final four years in office. ?She certainly wasn’t shy about putting the old-boy network to use to bring home millions of dollars,? said Steve Ellis, vice president of Taxpayers for Common Sense. ?She’s a little more savvy to the ways of Washington than she’s let on.?? [Washington Post, 9/2/08]
Lobbyist Hired By Palin Was Part of ?Team Abramoff.?
?According to Senate lobbying disclosure reports examined by TPMmuckraker, from 2002 to 2004 Silver listed as a client Jack Abramoff’s lobbying firm, Greenberg Traurig. On Greenberg’s behalf, Silver lobbied the federal government on ?issues relating to Indian/Native American policy,? ?exploration for oil and gas? and ?legislation relating to gaming issues? — the very issues that Abramoff headed up for Greenberg at the time. In other words, Silver appears to have been a part of ?Team Abramoff.? Indeed, one specific bill that Silver lobbied on for Greenberg, according to the forms, was S.627, also known as the Internet Gambling Funding Prohibition Act. A former Greenberg lobbyist confirmed to TPMmuckraker that Silver would have been working to oppose the bill. And it was an earlier version of this very bill that Abramoff famously worked to spike, with the support of Christian conservative leaders Lou Sheldon and Ralph Reed.? [Talking Points Memo, 9/2/08]
Lobbyist Hired By Palin Called A Member of Ted Stevens And Don Young?s ?Inner Circle? And His Firm ?Became Ensnared In The Wide-Ranging Federal Investigation Of Corruption By Alaska Republican Officials.?
In hiring Silver, Wasilla found someone who was a member of each lawmaker’s inner circle. Silver has donated at least $11,400 to Stevens’s political committees and $10,000 to Young’s reelection committee in the past decade, according to Federal Election Commission records. Sliver’s firm employed Stevens’s son, Ben Stevens, in the late 1990s as a federal lobbyist, according to multiple media accounts. Ben Stevens was not listed on lobbying disclosure forms as having worked on Wasilla earmarks. The firm became ensnared in the wide-ranging federal investigation of corruption by Alaska Republican officials. Federal agents reviewed records about its other municipal clients, as well as fishing companies represented by Robertson, Monagle & Eastaugh that were close to Ben Stevens.? [Washington Post, 9/2/08]
Palin?s $27 Million in Earmarks For Wasilla Came While Ted Stevens Was Chair of Senate Appropriations Committee.
?The Palin earmarks came when Stevens was chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee and Young was a senior member of the House transportation committee.? [Washington Post, 9/2/08]http://mclobbyist.com/palin_lobbyists.ht?

Why Do Americans Watch So Much Sports? Especially Christians?

Most sports stars are criminals or experiment with drugs or rape or splurge money and are materialistic.
Yet Americans worship them. It is always surprising when I see religious Americans who watch and support professional sports that is fulll of excessive greed/money, sex, on field violence, drug abuse, and possible even match fixing via illegal betting influence.

How Do American’s Obtain Their Money From Online Gambling Sites?

Ever since the Unlawful Internet Gaming and Enforcement Act (UIGEA) was signed over a year ago, I stopped playing online in fear of not being able to cash out my winnings. If you still play online, how have you been able to cash out? Check? Netteller? etc.
