Why can't they just leave me alone?
So I just got home from my trip and as soon as I get back I discover that several poker websites were shutdown on Friday by the FBI. As many of you know, playing poker is a passion of mine- I play virtually every day. Why do people feel this need to protect me from myself? Why does anyone give a rats ass if I win or lose a bunch of money playing online poker? All I want out of life is for people to leave me the fuck alone to do as I desire as long as I am not hurting anyone else. Is that too much to ask? Canada or Australia is looking better and better. At this rate Russia is going to have more freedoms than we have. Maybe I should move.
It was morality that burned the books of the ancient sages, and morality that halted the free inquiry of the Golden Age and substituted for it the credulous imbecility of the Age of Faith. It was a fixed moral code and a fixed theology which robbed the human race of a thousand years by wasting them upon alchemy, heretic-burning, witchcraft and sacerdotalism.-H.L. Mencken
