CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR: Obama’s New Tax On The Poor. And the stupid. You’d think he’d show more loyalty to his constituents. “The Obama Justice Department quietly issued a legal opinion – just before a long Christmas weekend – that allows states to set up nonsports Internet gambling. The opinion upends decades of contrary decisions, but its real effect will be on the poor (and young) who suffer the most from gambling.”

I’m all for legalizing Internet gambling, and pretty much any consensual activity, but I note the contradiction between this and the Obama Administration’s generally nannyist behavior. They’re looking to protect you from yourself — unless, you know, there’s a buck to be made by looking the other way.
