It’s easy to lose perspective of how good we’ve got it in the United States. Sure, there’s a clear divide among political ideologies right now, but that’s part of what make’s this county so great. We each have the right to be divided and to express that opinion without fear of legal penalty.
The many blessings that we have as a nation can be directly attributed to the efforts of a member of the armed services. Without military strength, these lands would not have been acquired, nor could they have been fortified and protected for 244 years.

Offshore betting sites are able to take bets from US-based patrons because federal gambling laws don’t outlaw the act of betting on sports with an international book over the web.
While other civilized countries like the United Arab Emirates, Singapore, and Japan have incredibly strict laws that harshly punish the bettors and the operations, the United States recognizes the lack of governance that their gambling laws provide in regard to international sports betting over the web, and rarely make any moves to prevent it.
Even when the United States government is prompted to target an international sportsbook, they go after the operators and not the patrons of the sportsbook site.
The bottom line is, no matter what US state you reside in, chances are you’ve got a legitimate option to wager on sports at your disposal, be it domestic brick-and-mortar facilities, or international sportsbooks.
