One of the reasons often cited for wanting to strip Americans of their right to gamble online is money laundering.The problem with this logic is that money can be laundered in any industry, not just online gambling. That’s discrimination in my book.
If U.S. lawmakers are supposed to be so much higher and mightier that the rest of the world’s leaders, how come they haven’t been able to stop money laundering after all this time?
You see, attempting to make online wagering illegal hasn’t dented money laundering at all.
Why should Americans lose their right to bet online just because the government can’t do its job in other arenas?
In our opinion this is one of the many “excuse reasons” to do away with online gambling.
Lawmakers whom are responsible for wanting to take your right to gamble online away probably know their true reasons for not wanting you to gamble online wouldn’t stand up in court. So they turn to such deflectionary arguments to cover their true reasons.
What might their true reasons be?
Reasons of morality. Continue reading
In a recent interview with Slam Magazine Allen Iverson apologized for being a jerk all these years and says he would like to finish his career in the NBA if they’ll have him back…
AI: I want to finish my career out in the NBA, if that’s possible. And that’s in any capacity. I did a lot of things, I made a lot of mistakes as far as my actions and things that I’ve said, and I think that was the reason for me not being in the NBA. My whole thing now in trying to get back is letting any organization know that I’m willing to play any part that they want me to play.
SLAM: You watching any Playoff ball and thinking, “Damn, I should be out there?”
AI: You know what, it’s hard. It’s hard to watch. Like, I try to watch it and then at times you’re watching and you get emotional and I get away from it, have a little moment by myself or to myself, and then I try to get back and watch it. I mean, it’s basketball—what I love. It’s what I was born to do. So it’s hard to watch, but it’s hard not to watch.
SLAM: What’s drawing you back out on the court? Just a love for the game?
AI: [Long pause; starts to choke up] I love to play basketball. I’ve always said, If I can’t do what I’m accustomed to doing out there on the basketball court, I’ll leave it alone. If I can’t be effective and help my team win basketball games out there, than I don’t want to do it. I don’t want to play the game that I feel like I’m the best in and go out there and not play like that, not feel like I’m that person. I don’t think it would be fair to my fans, my team, my organization, nothing. But when I look at basketball and when I know what I can do on the basketball court, it’s just hard knowing that I went through a whole NBA season and didn’t play when I know how much I can play. I’ll play for a team in any capacity just to get back out there doing what I love to do.
The NAACP has come under fire for the lineup of Hip-Hop performers included to take part in the 42nd Annual NAACP Awards at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles tonight (March 4th).
Artists like Jay-Z, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Diddy and Dirty Money, B.o.B. and others will perform, present or have been nominated to be honored in a variety of categories, including music, film, television and literature.
The lineup has drawn the wrath of Reverend Delman Coates of Mt. Ennon Baptist Church in Clinton, Maryland, who heads up the Enough is Enough Campaign for Corporate Responsibility in Entertainment.
In addition to Rev. Coates, other NAACP regions have received complaints about tonight’s lineup.
“It is a complete outrage that the NAACP and some of this country’s largest corporations would endorse artists that degrade women, use the “N” word, and promote values that are antithetical to the goals and aspirations of most Americans,” Rev. Coates told AllHipHop.com in a statement.
“Lyrical content, not commercial success should be the standard by which such nominations and sponsorships are given,” Rev. Coates said. “At a time when we have witnessed social and political progress in America, it is disheartening to see established civil rights organizations and leading American corporations promote some of the most stereotypical and offensive images and messages in the popular culture.”
Damn! I was on Mediatakeout and I seen that Kanye tweeted some sh*t to Wiz Khalifa saying “You know you kissing my d*ck when you kissing that b*tch right?” WOW! Them is shootin words right there. That sh*t is uncalled for but he is thuggin for that. Here is the tweet from Mediatakeout.
At the end of the day. Anytime you kiss a b*tch you are kissing lips that some other n*gga had their d*ck on. It’s the truth. Kanye seeming like he kinda mad that homeboy is smashing Amber though. B*tch is an industry jumpoff/stripper. What the f*ck you tweetin about that b*tch for. You getting mad at Wiz but YOU THE ONE THAT SAVED THE H0E! Wiz got her after she already been saved.
In my opinion Kanye is worse cause he is the one who saved her. I’m just sayin.
