Having been in the computer industry and information industry for more years (24) then 98% of the on-line public today and having the opportunity to academically study and teach the subjects of new technology; there are those that were also against the teletype, telephone, radio, television, and the computer, etc..
Today, with everything, their is a computer chip running it. More importantly - probably - politicians are trying to tax interstate commerce via communication media. We beat them with the internet due to explosive of growth.
(NOTE: IT'S OKAY TO SEND AND PAY OUR TAXES DOLLARS VIA THE INTERNET TO THE IRS - DAH?)
Encryption is safe and security is pissing off the NSA, CIA, FBI and foreign foes. Because, we consumers have encryption software (128 bit) that would take A Cray computer 15 years to decipher a love note. Big brother wants to meddle in our affairs.
There is the moral issue. Gambling. Well - from the start, the first American revolutionary Army we had against the British was money gathered by a lottery by the colonists. Gee, they like to change the history books about the truth. So - for me, the moral issue is who wants to throw the first rock.
Then we have the ones that do not like the computer and information systems industry because it will take away the jobs. Blah - Blah - Not true. To them, go back to school and learn. Education is a life long process or park cars for a living.
The best... BETT business plan is NOTvia the WWW Internet format or protocols that we are using with Microsoft Windows Software. - They plan to use different hardware on the same circuits which is the same we use for Banking ATMs circuits..
So, think back when we go the the local grocery store and purchase a lottery ticket. How does our tickets get to Loto headquarters? .......... via computer communications circuits. Now it's okay for the government to do it - but not the private sector? Hope the picture is clearer.
I would like to play my lottery on Saturday night from home. I also would like to bet a fight, football game, baseball game, a lottery in a different state, horses, dogs, frogs and chickens. Actually I bet only the lottery - (and pennies) but the market share is there. Also how about betting Irish and Italian lottery once a year worth millions. What is the difference if we use a stamp or a communication's circuit. Only the delivery media. Before it was by foot, then horse and carriage, train, airplane, and now communication's circuits.
If anyone has the opportunity, please read the "Digial Economy", it can be picked up at your local library for free. The whole world is changing to a communication's world of information. The older politicians will be gone and the new thinkers will be in. Just a matter of time - and they can not stop it.
Another point about BETT, how about buying anything at home via a communication's circuit with one of BETT's devices. Same one you use when you use your credit card at a department store. The communications circuit. Do not let anybody blow smoke.
Additionally what makes BETT different is the encryption with ET & T and with Unicom that are business partners.
I feel better.. LOL. Tomorrow the surf will be up and I will be surfing with my boys on da beach. Best wishes:)
