Amnesty for illegals won't go away....

Found this at Michelle Malkin:

      According to the The Washington Times,  it appears that Bush and the Republican Congress are selling us out on immigration. We"ll see. I think this is just a typical trial balloon sent out  before  November to get the base involved. We'll see how this plays out before getting too excited. I don't expect this to get through the Senate this year, let alone the House because of the coming elections.

    The administration hired Tony Snow to suck up to the base, good move, but to little I'm afraid. Should be a lot of Democrats taking over next year as the (artificial) Republicans sell out there base. You can't spend money like drunken Democrats and expect a lot of support. You can't reward illegal behavior with out consequences. How ever, only the Dems can screw themselves out of electoral victory this year. I don't think it's inevitable but I'm a diehard optimist..

     It's not rocket science to figure the end of this  if you remember Bush senior pissing us off about taxes and leaving Saddam in power. The base rules in modern politics, even or especially if, you antagonize them. Take a look at the "Loony Left" bossing Gore and Kerry around. Hillary is defying them somewhat in public by being less shrill about our "taking over the world by Neo-cons". She could end up as Pres. by default.

Ain't life wonderful. See you in Laughlin, Nevada this weekend.

Where have all the Republicans gone ..........

I remember voting for the last 25 yrs for fiscal sanity, law and order and national security. You really think we can vote for people who violated our trust? $3 gas? Iran nukes aimed at Israel? Foreigners marching in the streets demanding hand outs?Hello!!!! Pissed doesn't come close.

Here's Michelle Malkin's take on Bush's immigration plan:

As pro-illegal immigration forces organize mass protests in favor of "Mexico! Mexico!" and against stricter border security, President Bush is pushing his guest-worker/amnesty plan hard this weekend. His radio address today was filled with open borders-friendly platitudes (audio and transcript of the address, you'll notice, are available in Spanish at the White House website). Here are two:

"America is a nation of immigrants, and we're also a nation of laws."

"...As we debate the immigration issue, we must remember there are hard-working individuals, doing jobs that Americans will not do, who are contributing to the economic vitality of our country."

We are not a "nation of immigrants." This is both a factual error and a warm-and-fuzzy non sequitur. Eighty-five percent of the residents currently in the United States were born here. Sure, we are almost all descendants of immigrants. But we are not a "nation of immigrants." More.....

One way to make extra money to pay those socialist in Washinton........

Here's what the pros say for tournament play. You have to understand that these guys play people who know what they are doing. If that's your goal then you have to start playing for much bigger stakes than I do. You'll also have to get really good with the math. Not impossible but there is so much money to be made playing in local tournaments with people who love to give their money away (it's fun, fun ) why bother. I know you want to be on tv. And pay all those taxes. And expenses. Good luck. Read some of these tips and see what you think.
Lesson: 56 Early Tournament Play David Grey

Most players are aware of the significant advantages that come with having a big stack in a tournament. When a player has chips, he can attack and pick up pots by forcing those around him into a corner where they have to make tough decisions. Those who have short stacks are always vulnerable to attack by those who have managed to accumulate lots of chips. Read more......

I am crushing limit players playing no-limit on line.......

Poker is always better when your opponents are playing the wrong game. In low buy-in no- limit tournaments you find players, especially limit players, calling and betting the minimum like they play in limit tourneys. All you have to do is watch a few of these and you'll see what I mean.

Trust me there is a big difference in the two.For instance, playing in first position with anything less than ace big, suited cards or pairs. Even though they are not used to being raised, this is what you do to beat them up. If you are simply patient the cards will come to make them pay for this error. You would think that it would dawn on them that this is disasterous play, some do. However, most do it because in limit games or with ineperienced opponents, it doesn't cost much to see a flop. Unless I am in the hand , late position with good cards, I raise the size of the pot.. If I play this hand (bluff) in early position I bet the pot, then bet the flop. If I am wrong, I fold to strength (all in). I pick up a lot of small pots this way and occasionally I catch the nuts and double up, helping me get to the money.

P.s. most people who play these tourneys on line play the same for money or fun. In that case play for fun online then beat them live at your local casino. You'll see what I mean. Many people read a book or two on poker and run to the casino and get slaughtered. In small stakes mult-table no limit games these people go nuts and will not fold to minimum bets let alone your raises. They also get big pot-itis The bigger the pot the bigger the greed. These can become all in contest and if you have the cards you make money fast. Besides for $30 or $40 bucks and a thousand dollar or so pay off it's a lot of fun. Reread this article to see how to crush them. chip count (328, 874) and counting. in first session, (3000), Partpoker, (78000). (17,689) in four sessions

You get the idea

Changes to science are a coming ......

For years the "Humanist" viewpoint (no supernatural forces at work) on our origins and purpose for existence has been unchallenged. But in the last 20 yrs or so the political left has fought the religious right for control of our educational system and appears to be losing the arguement. No surprise since aetheism offers very little hope for the future. Anyways, if ever a revolution in science is coming this maybe a major factor.

Harvard study tells parties to court 'religious centrists'

College students are becoming more religious, and it's affecting their political views, according to a new Harvard University survey of this potentially influential voting bloc. "Religious centrists" rule, according to the university.

A full 70 percent say religion plays an important part in their lives, with a quarter saying their spirituality has increased at college. Six out of 10 say they are concerned about the moral direction of the country, according to the poll of 1,200 students from across the country, conducted March 13 to 27 and released Tuesday.

Royal Flush does exist ......

Got my first royal flush today on Pokerstars. Had Kd, 4 offsuit and flopped A, Q, J of diamonds. Guy bet big, I called. 10 Diamonds hit, guy bet big, I'm all in he calls.

What's cool is I told him I had it before he bet. First Royal I've ever gotten in two years of play. What's more, I 've never been in a game that one hit. I finished with a win by catching a straight. Best poker game of my life.
