In the video blog he takes aim at the U.S. government for its SWAT-style raid earlier this year at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1837 in Dallas.

"Poker is about as American as baseball and apple pie," Carey said. "It was born here in America. Mark Twain loved it. He's a great American. Until recently, Supreme Court justices had a monthly game. They're great Americans. You'd think playing poker in the VFW hall would be about as American as anything you can do."

Explaining that the raid is part of a broader plan to shut down poker even in low-stakes games benefiting charity, Carey went on to elicit from the veterans that all the proceeds from the weekly poker game went to maintaining the VFW hall or to other charitable causes. The hall has now had to close for lack of funds.
