US Government Interferes With Online Poker, Craigslist, Priceline
US Seizing The Shirt Also? The US government has started an all out war on the Internet on Tuesday when they had seizure warrnats issued to freeze bank accounts of various payment processors. Among the hardest hit in the seizure was online poker, Craigslist, Priceline, and iTunes.
Government officials pointed to the dangers that these sites present to children as their reason for securing the seizure warrants. At a time when the economy is already struggling, and the government spending billions of dollars in bailouts. they needed a way to make back some of that money, and they felt seizing it from succesful companies was the way to go.
Craigslist has become one of the most popular ways for consumers to find deals on the Internet. The US County District Judge Attorney Representative Senator's office claimed that Craigslist was simply a way for sexual predators to find weak children that are online searching for a new bicycle.
The Priceline seizure came because government officials deemed William Shatner to be too scary for young children to look at on the Priceline commercials. They first asked Priceline to remove the Shatner commercials, but when they resisted, the government had to show them who is boss. Anyone with a Priceline account will also wake up on Wednesday with their bank accounts frozen.
GoDaddy.com is self-explanable. They were becoming too big, too fast, not good in the US. Government had an easy choice here, screw with the company so they will go away.
As for the online poker processors, the US has caused an outrage. There were thousands of account holders who had their payment options stripped from them, and immediately their frustration turned to violence.
In Chicago, a group who called themselves, Poker For Mental Stability, started fires in the streets after learning that their poker accounts had been frozen. One of the men was heard saying, "let's light this mutha fuc**r up like the Bulls just won the NBA championship!"
iTunes was also effected by the seizures, and a government official confirmed that they could not allow a company to continue operating after a major American idol star revealed he was gay. Surprisingly, they were not speaking of Adam Lambert, but Danny Gokey.
Now that the government seizures have started, the lobbying groups for worldwide travel, online gambling, Internet home crap sales, and music, have all began their legal work to undo this mess.
