Douge2's Humor Corner - Thinking

The Faldo Strategy

Near the end of a rainy day Sunday service, the Clergyman asked, “How many of you have forgiven your enemies?” About eighty percent of the congregation raised their hands.

The Man of the Cloth told the remaining people to take a minute to pray to God and forgive their enemies today. After the prayer session, the Preacher asked again, “How many of you have forgiven your enemies?”

All responded, except old Mr. Barnes who only attended the service when the weather was bad and he could not golf. The Clergyman asked, “It is good to see you here today Mr. Barnes. But are you not willing to forgive your enemies?”

Mr. Barnes replied, “I don’t have any.”

“That is wonderful Mr. Barnes. May I ask you how old you are?”

“I’m 98, Barnes replied gruffly.”

The congregation stood up and gave a round of thunderous applause.

The Preacher then asked, “Please, Mr. Barnes. Come up here in front of the congregation and tell us all how you lived to be 98 and not collect any enemies.”

Mr. Barnes walked to the front of the church, stopped in front of the pulpit and turned and faced the congregation.

Then he said in a strong voice, “I out-lived all them son’s a bitches.”


Women are Smart…They Think

A woman was walking along the beach and found the standard lamp that had washed up on shore, She rubbed it and the standard Genie popped out and gave her the standard three wishes.

The Genie told her, “But remember, whatever you wish for, your husband will get 10 times that amount.”

The woman said she understood and asked to be the most beautiful woman in the world as the first wish.

The Genie warned her that her husband will be 10 times more handsome than any man and no woman on the planet will be able to resist him. She said that was ok with her. So it was granted.

Her second wish was to be the richest person on the planet. She understood that her husband would have 10 times that amount, but what is his is hers since they are married.

For her final wish, she asked for a mild heart attack!

Not done. See comments.

Faldo Finished 9th and 6th in Poker4Ever Freerolls

Poker4Ever (P4E) is still open to US players. I have very little bling in there (and not going to deposit any), but I have enough to be allow enter their few freerolls (FR). This one had 548 players in it.

Now the usual problem still exists with FR – especially those at P4E. Half the table (5 to 6 players) are sitting out and for the first 2 to 3 blind levels, the other two players are moving all-in with any two cards.

In addition, the blinds increase quickly – so the strategy of those 2 or 3 players at the start of the tourney is not necessarily a bad one. But I prefer to wait until I have two cards that at least are bigger than a 9 and live in the same general neighborhood or are the same color. Call me prejudice with poker cards.

After the initial carnage in the first three rounds of blinds, the game switches gears. The tight players still remain tight however.

The “lucky” all-in rabbits now have a lot of chips and tighten up to lock down mode. They now only play premium hands trying to trap the rocks and wait out the blinds, which are chewing up the stacks with super – turbo increases.

Here is where Faldo pounces. If I survived, I usually have the perfect middle stack. If my pocket nines, AQ and a suited Ace have held up, and I am still around, I am the other player’s worst nightmare.

My own tight image scares the rocks and the rabbits alike. The rocks still have a decent stack (they think) and won’t play because they figure I have something and don’t want to get knocked out. The former rabbits now have big stacks, but don’t want to get crippled by my medium one in a coin flip.

If my strategy is successful, I grow my medium army to a large army just stealing the blinds of the people sitting out.

We started with 548 players. We have 280 left, but when the sitter-outers (SOs) are blinded away, the player number drops to 120 in literally 2 hands! By this time in the tourney the blinds are really high, the SOs are gone and the real turbo tourney can begin.

I finished 9th in the hand just after the 10-player final table started when my AKs got called and beat by 44 and JJ. The other loser had less chips than me.

My 6th place finish was a real ugly beat. My 9h 9s tripped on the flop of [9d Ac 8c] and the villain called with (As 4c). Two more clubs came runner – runner.

I thought ONLY PokerStars did this to me – and only on Tuesday Night against Theedouble*d?

Enjoying Cigars – La Flor de Caney


This is Faldo’s number two cigar behind Licenciados.

This is a slightly stronger cigar, and it is about the same price as the Licenciados. This means it will not break your wallet to buy a box of these, and it competes in quality with the best of them.

La Flor de Caney is an old Cuban brand now made in the Dominican Republic and released in 2001 by Mike’s Cigars. It went on sale one time at the same time I was stocking up on Licenciados, so I bought a box.

When I tried it - and liked it - I was happy that I now had a ‘heavier’ cigar that I enjoyed. So of course I had to research where the cigar came from and was shocked to learn that the master blender was none other than Manuel Quesada.

Senor Quesada is personally responsible for the Licenciados, Fonseca and Casa Blanca brands also. La Flor de Caney is made with the finest tobacco from the Cibao valley in the Dominican Republic, with Cameroon wrapper aged in tercio, letting the leaves sweat in their own juices for the entire aging process. This is a top quality medium bodied cigar at a non-top quality price.

La Flor del Caney comes in the standard sizes; Churchill – 7”x 50, Lonsdale – 6.5”x43, Toro (Faldo’s favorite) – 6”x 50, Corona – 5.5” x 43.

It also has a “Bouquet” size – 4 3/4 x 59 – with a unique bulge in the center (twss). This is a nice size cigar for a ‘quick smoke’.

La Flor del Caney is one of the best coming out of the Matasa factory. Don’t judge this product by the price (around $75 a box of 25). This is one of the best in the market today. If it was sold by a major company this cigar would be over $100.00 a box.

Faldo did try the Fonseca and the Casa Blanca brands by Manuel Quesada. I’ll go ahead and report on both of those on the next cigar report.

This is Painful to Watch - But Watch You Must

video

Democrat Rep. Hank Johnson - Georgia

Our poor military has to fight battles - WITH CONGRESS - because of an idiot voting block here at home.

This is your Democrat Congress at work.

This is your military-hating Democrat Congress at work.

This is your Marxist-based environmentally challenged Democrat Congress at work.

We in Michigan cannot laugh too loudly. We elected a dumber communist in Carl Lenin and a buffet tipping over and emptying Debbie Stabbing-me-now.

It goes without saying that this Admiral is a better man than me. I could not have withstood the torture of listening to a "boss" of mine that is this incompetent.

The Community Card Review - Democrats Are on the Warpath. Get Prepared to Engage - or Lose Your Country

An Ohio Democrat government official proudly placing communists on his office wall.

Democrat Maxine Waters of California said that the Tea Party members “can go straight to hell!” I guess she missed the Obama speech on civility.

Of course Obama didn’t hear to his own speech he read off the teleprompter as he told his supporters to “go to war” against the Republicans.

All the Tea Party - and most of the Republicans want - is for our government to actually follow the Constitution. Democrats can’t stand the Constitution. It is an impediment to the dictatorship the Democrats desire.

A few weeks ago, the NAACP celebrated a 102 year anniversary in Los Angeles. President Benjamin Todd Jealous set the agenda for the organization for the coming year.

Looking out over the disaster that is the Obama Administration, Jealous tells the audience that the number one issue for Americans who happen to be Black (AWHTBB) is voting rights.

Voting rights????? Really???

Jealous called for his liberal racist group to mobilize to “stop restrictive laws that oppress voting rights for AWHTBB.” He claimed these laws were every bit as bad as the Jim Crow laws Southern Democrats once enforced.

Of course he forgot to mention that it WAS the Southern DEMOCRATS passing and enforcing the Jim Crow laws. This piece of history must have slipped his mind. An honest mistake I'm sure.

The actual new voting laws just require voters to show photo ID at the polls. It has nothing to do with race. It has to do with stopping voter fraud - which is a way of life in Democrat districts and is on page ONE of their playbook. As the Democrat hero Joseph Stalin said, "It is not voters that win elections, but who counts them."

With AWHTBB unemployment over 16%, the recession getting worse, the housing market in the tank, over 50% of AWHTBB never graduate high school and a test cheating scandal in the Atlanta school system where AWHTBB students were used as pawns to get government money - and Ben Jealous thinks voting rights are the number one concern for AWHTBB???

Obama met with Jealous and Jealous gave is "voting rights" speech two days later.

Here is the real deal. The Obama Administration is deathly worried about AWHTBB voter apathy in this coming election. The "hope" was not delivered and the "change" made everything worse.

The AWHTBB voter base is actually demoralized. They had a Black president and a Democrat Congress in full control of the government - and life for AWHTBB's got much MUCH worse.

The true sign of mental illness is doing the exact same failed policies over and over again and expecting a different result.

Which explains liberalism.

Golf Chatter at the 19th Hole

Well, the Beerhog Open came and went. 128 players, a great time, great food, great prizes and of course free beer.

Faldo’s team just missed the predicted score of -32 under for the 18-hole scramble. Faldo puts the blame for this on nobody! You play as a team, you win as a team and you lose as a team. That is how Faldo rolls.

However, his playing partners really did stink that day. Faldo carried the team, but penalty strokes killed our score. We were penalized strokes for all kinds of violations.

Davethedog was assessed penalty stokes for Drives not Reaching the Ladie’s Tees, Contamination of the Ponds with Golf Balls, and for Putting Like Magilla Gorilla.

Bronco76 was assessed penalties for Making Divot Chucks that Were so Big (how big were they?) That Needed their Own Zip Code, and for Buying Beer From the Cute Beer Cart Girl Even Though There Was Free Beer On the Course.

Bigbrimar was assessed the penalty strokes for Only Using the Left Side of the Course and for Putting With Undersized Panty Hose On.

Bigbri also was assessed a team penalty for “losing” ALL the Team Jello Shots.

Faldo was even penalized one stroke for Making Too Many Putts Over 50 Feet. It's the new Obama Federal Law where those that make the putts MUST give to those who do not.

Faldo of course played flawlessly, but the penalty strokes (26 of them) left us at -4, which left us just shy of the winning team ….. at -13 under.

Beerhog once again announced the prize winners after dinner with class.

For the longest drive he announced Phil McCraken.

For closest to the stick, it was Mike Hunt.

And Beerhog proudly announced the winner of the Ladies Longest Drive; Amanda Huginkissme.

The golf season is heading into the best time. The rates will be dropping and it is time to hit some of the more expensive courses, if you have not already.

Fall golf is great! And it usually lasts until November.

First of all, the courses are rarely crowded. Once football starts, the courses empty out around noon. Low rates and you can play at a quicker pace. You can’t beat that!

The weather is cooler but still nice.The tree colors are spectacular.

Then, the trees get bare and those stupid leaves don’t slow your ball flight. [Faldo has only heard of this and of course never experienced hitting a ball into a tree]

And the mosquito, horse and deer flies are gone!

When the snow comes, and you know your next golf shot on a golf course is at least 5 months away, you will be glad you got the rounds in you did this fall.

Obama to Give New Speech on the Economy - After a Wine Tasting Tour of Course


Yes, as soon as his 22nd vacation in less than three years is over, and he returns from Martha's Vineyard and the Hamptons where he dines on lobster and kobe steak - the "shared sacrifice" demanding president will give us a new speech about his "lazer-like focus on job creation."

The only thing missing from this picture is the wheel barrel full of bull manure that is under that wall mounted teleprompter.

Douge2's Humor Corner - Diversity Training

A Great New Business

Why didn't the U.S. Government think of this??? A friend of mine just started his own business in Afghanistan. He's making land mines that look like prayer mats. It's doing so well, business is booming, and he says, "Prophets are going through the roof!"

GENERAL PUBLIC NOTICE REGARDING MY DOG:

Please be advised I am sick and tired of receiving questions about my dog who mauled three Muslims sitting on a rug next to my retaining wall, six illegal aliens wearing Barack Obama t-shirts, four Democrats wearing Nancy Pelosi t-shirts, five phone operators who asked me to press #1 for English, ten flag burning liberals from Ann Arbor, and a Pakistani taxi driver.

For the last time......The dog is NOT for sale!!!

A Lunch Chat

Two Middle Eastern mothers are sitting in a cafe chatting. The older of the two pulls a bag out of her purse and starts flipping through photos. They start reminiscing.

"This is my oldest son, Mujibar. He would have been 24 years old now."
"Yes, I remember him as a baby," says the other mother cheerfully.

"He's a martyr now though" the mother confides.
"Oh, so sad dear," says the other.

"And this is my second son, Khalid. He would have been 21."
"Oh, I remember him," says the other happily, "he had such curly hair when he was born."

"He's a martyr too." says the mother quietly.
"Oh, gracious me . . ," says the other.

"And this is my third son. My baby. My beautiful Ahmed. He would have been 18," she whispers.

"Yes" says the friend enthusiastically, "I remember when he first started school."
"He's a martyr also," says the mother, with tears in her eyes.

After a pause and a deep sigh, the second Muslim mother looks wistfully at the photographs and, searching for the right words, says …

"They blow up so fast, don't they?"


A Brave New World

A fifteen year old Amish boy and his father were in a mall for the first time. They were amazed at everything they saw, especially these two shiny metal doors that kept opening and closing (an elevator).

The boy asked, “Father, what is that?”

And the father honestly answered, “Son, I have never seen anything like this before in my life. I don’t know what it is.”

While the boy and father were standing there, a little old lady hobbled into the elevator and the doors closed again. When the elevator doors re-opened, a 24-year old hottie in a mini-skirt came out.

The father quietly said to the boy, “Son…..go get your mother.”

The 20 Dumbest Things in Sports – The Top 10

10B. Soccer is dumber than basketball. There, I said it.

10. Sideline reporters and sideline interviews– Canned responses and a total waste of time. I would rather watch the cheerleaders.

9. Four NFL Pre-season games – Two too many.

8. Spring Major League Baseball games in cold weather cities - Just too dumb, and for no reason. Does it make sense to pull all your multi-million dollar athletes from where they were just playing in 80 degree weather at half speed, and drop them in 40 degree weather to go full speed? Real smart.

7. Touch up “icing” in pro hockey – broken legs and ankles for no good reason at all. Someone will get killed before they change it – the very next day. So why wait? Because the NHL is stupid. I still have even MORE proof of how stupid the owners and the NHL league is. Be patient.

6. World Series in November – THIS will happen someday. >>>> Let’s say it’s a Chicago Cubs – Boston Red Sox match up where game after game is called because of SNOW – and when they do play – its 20 degrees outside. Cut the schedules and have the season end the first week of October. See #8.

5. Super Bowl Halftime Show – Turn in your Man-card if you watch this annual disaster of an event. Pathetic. All the women and children want to watch it. I rest my case.

4. All-Star Games – They all suck. Even baseball’s is a joke. The players want the time off. Give it to them. Getting voted as an all-star is the honor, not playing the game. It turns into three more days of more work, more travel and more idiotic interviews with idiot interviewers.

3. Astro-turf – The stuff today is great and I guess Astro-turf was the Model-T of fake grass. But a thin rubber mat over cement - with no give what so ever – was just wrong! Owners who used it should have been sued or made to play sports on it themselves. But just until their knees and joints were destroyed - like in a week.

2. The BCS – Two more games is all we are asking for. After the bowls, have the coaches vote on who are the four best teams. Coaches in the "top 10" BCS poll get no vote, and the named ballots would be published. Get it done. It would be as big as the Super Bowl. Hey…..that might be the reason it is not done.

1. Instigator rule in Pro Hockey – The NHL always determines what the hardcore hockey fan likes about the game, and then proceeds to eliminate that aspect from the game. “The game within the game” is what the true hockey fan lives for during the regular season. When the new gunfighter was going to face the old guard “policeman”, you could feel the electricity in the air. The NHL saw this and said it had to go.

So you see, it is not just Congress and Democrat voters that are brain dead stupid. The NHL ties them in that department.

Urinating on the people who support you, and telling them it is raining, only works just so long. Unless you are Democrat that is.

The 20 Dumbest Things in Sports – Part 1


This should have made the list: Simona Halep had breast reduction surgery! I get tears in my eyes every time I think about it.

20. Basketball - Regular Season College and Pro – A waste of time to watch. How many jump shots, free throws, and in Pro basketball - loafing and walking - can you witness? See the You Tube “Slamball.” It is a far better game! I might actually attend that. On second thought, I still wouldn’t.

19. LeBron James, Dwayne Wade…and ‘the other guy’. – It was so over the top coverage. And for what? This would have a higher ranking if I gave a care about basketball. See above.

18. USFL and XFL – Talk about flooding the market. Now if the CFL was smart (but they are Canadian, so never mind), they would change their rules to match the NFL and become farm teams for the NFL. A triple win for the fans, the owners and the players I think.

17. “Offsides” rule, Shootouts and faking injuries in soccer – How is a defender allowed to save himself from being beaten on a play by running away from the goal he is supposed to defend? This is a stupid rule.

How about changing soccer so there is more scoring? Then you would not need those boring shootouts – or worse, acting like you got killed because you got tripped? How va-jay-jay is that??

But the soccer players act like 4 year olds on a playground wanting their mommies - in hopes of getting a penalty kick – just to show a little offense.

These would be lower on the list too – if soccer mattered at all.

16. Hockey Playoffs in June and July. – Come on. Winter is over. I can’t even watch the playoffs because I am on the golf course. Cut the season down or do two-nighters in the same city to cut travel days. Get a clue NHL (which has the dumbest top management in pro sports. More proof later.)

15. Bad Hockey Markets – Two teams in Florida?? Really? And Pheonix is a disaster. Still more proof later.

14. The “Wave” – If it is not dead yet, it should be. I am trying to watch the game and I don’t need to have people jumping up every 30 seconds! Sit down you idiots.

13. Ten-cent Beer Night – Yeah, that works out just fine – IF you are starting a riot or attracting Democrat voters (which leads to a violent riot). Only the drinkers, free-loaders and troublemakers attend these. Like I said; the Democrat voting block.

12. NFL touchdown celebrations – You are a grown man doing a job. Act like you have been successful before. Besides, you would not have scored the touchdown without a lot of help from others. Grow up. See video on how the great Barry Sanders acted after a touchdown run.

11. Shootouts in Pro Hockey – There was nothing wrong with a hard fought tie. This is a pathetic marketing trick. But at least they can be a little entertaining. Even MORE proof of a dumb NHL to come.

The TOP ten a little later.

Chess Magic: It Ain't Over Til it's Over

Black to move:

Black is down material having lost a rook and only gaining back two extra pawns.

White has the threat of 2. Qa8+, forcing Black to move his King. Then White can get a pawn back with Qxa7+, and then take the bishop on the next move! Ouch.

Black could trade queens with 1. ...Qxg2+, but trading pieces when behind in material is usually not a good idea. The remaining rook would dominate Black's remaining bishop as the rook would hem in Black's king to the back rows and then slowly pick off Black's remaining pawns...all the way to victory.

So, Black must come up with another plan. Black to move....and win! See if you can find THE move!

The solution can be found by scrolling down and finding "Chess Magic Revealed" on the right side of the blog.

The Community Card Review - USA Down-graded...by Democrats/Liberals/Communists

The United States credit rating was down-graded for the FIRST time in history.

Who has been in charge of our government and treasury the last two and a half years?

The Democrats.

The Speaker of the Senate and real estate deal cheating Harry Reid took to the microphones and blamed “the lack of tax increases, oil companies and private jet owners” as the reason for the down grade.

Note to Harry “real estate cheat and liar” Reid; IF you took every cent from every American who has over $1 million dollars in income, you could run the nation on YOUR spending policies for less than six months….then you would be out of money AGAIN!

Harry - and the rest of you class envy communists who vote Democrat - you could do this exactly once. Then no one would have any big piles of money for you to take.

Let’s stick to facts:

Fact: Obama took over a nation with a AAA rating and spent us into a down-grade in just in two and a half years.

Fact: The US citizens do not have the combined wealth to confiscate (tax) us out of this mess.

Fact: The only way to save our credit rating, our wealth and our nation is to fire every Democrat in 2012.

Every time we elect a Democrat president and Democrat congress, our nation goes into a depression. Every time.

When will the citizens of this nation EVER learn?

The answer to this rhetorical question to about one-third of our citizens is actually NEVER. Liberalism is a mental illness. Facts cannot enter the brain of a liberal. History is irrelevant to a liberal. Destruction right before a liberal’s eyes is ignored.

Liberals are not only mentally ill, but more dangerous than the worst psychopaths due to their numbers and the institutions they infest (education, the media, entertainment and government).

PS: Your government is making plans to confiscate your retirement/IRA’s/pensions. They will offer a deal to turn the money over to them for a guaranteed 3% a year increase, or you can take your money now at a 50% to 75% tax rate, but never be able to ever get another cent from the government.

Start thinking about your choice my fellow slaves. You are about to become complete wards of the government.

How is that Hope and Change working out for you?

Faldo’s “Go To” Cigar – Licenciados


Pronounced: “lee’cen cia dos”

THIS is the puro a cigar store owner thrust into my hand as a freebie. As a cigar smoker – heck a smoker of anything – “newbie”, I had been turned off by the strong, heavy cigars my buddies were getting me to try on the golf course.

This cigar starts off very mild, some may even say bland. But as it goes, the flavor kicks up, but the mildness stays! Let me give you some information from places that sell Licenciados:

“The Licenciados cigar is a mild to medium flavored cigar that uses a Connecticut wrapper. Both wrapper and the tobacco are from the Dominican Republic and the cigar is manufactured by in that country (Santiago) too, by MATASA. It was blended by Manuel Quesada. Senor Quesada’s goal was to make a Macanudo, with a little stronger flavor.”

Well, in this writer’s opinion, he did BETTER than that! Not only is the flavor better than the Macanudo (kind of a nutty flavor), but the cigar stays mild with no bitterness all the way to the nub! Another review:

“Though the production of Licenciados cigars stated manufacture only in early 90s in 1994, it won a major accolade for its quality.

Cigar Aficionado Magazine gave them a score of 93 for the cigar. This is the first time a cigar manufactured outside Cuba was given such high regard by this respected magazine. This was the highest rating given to a cigar manufactured outside Cuba at that time.”

And from Mike’s Cigars [see link on right side of blog], whom Faldo usually purchases them from:

“Licenciados is our best selling cigar. It was made to taste like a Macanudo but adds up a notch on the flavor. Creamy and full of nutty flavors is exactly the way we wanted it. It's a tad richer than a Macanudo and a lot more interesting.

The Cigar Aficionado Magazine rated Licenciados the highest rating ever given to a non-Cuban cigar. That 93 decoration was a real landmark sensation because up to that time those top ratings were exclusively reserved to Cuban cigars only. Licenciados proved to be the pioneer brand which paved the way to many other Dominican made cigars on the road to stardom and recognition.”

Faldo has tried many other cigars and have found a couple that are worthy to be “in stock” in Faldo’s storage humidor, or purchased when a "deal" can be had.

Because, after all, you can try other cigars and your "main" cigar doesn't get pissed, leave and take half of what you own with it.

But my “go to” cigar, whether it is for after dinner, on the golf course, at the cigar bar or writing blog posts on my deck – it’s Licenciados.

The Faldo Report on Poker and Golf – Beerhog’s Outing Coming Up!!!


Rumors were confirmed that Davethedog, aka, 4-putt, aka, Gilligan – is out there practicing for the Beerhog Open Outing on August 13th. Details for the outing on the right side of the blog.

Now if Davethedog can make it, you can too. How about a Boother 4-some? How about a Douge2 4-some? How about a Cigar4John – No Pants 4-some?

It’s a great time. Did I mention the free beer?

Golf has been a funny game for me as of late. A month ago, I was shooting rounds in the 70’s consistently. I even traveled to another course other than my home; Hartland Glen, and shot an 81 (Links of Whitmore Lake). So I was as they say, “In the zone.”

But, it has been up and down since then. Try these rounds; 79, 93, 74, 86. I have not exactly benn playing very consistent. Now the 93 was shot at Huntmore, which is the first time I played there. That would add maybe five strokes to the score. And we were playing the “Blues” – which made it a longer course than anything at HG.

But that was no excuse for the lousy iron shots, poor chipping and miserable putting. I literally had no clue where the next shot was going to end up. And three 3-putts is unacceptable at any time. I just “didn’t have it” that day and I need to try that course again!

The 86 was the result of just plain butchering three holes. A pure slice of an iron, a drop and a 3-putt. A “skulled” lob wedge into the woods. And a “hero” shot attempt that when into the woods, rattled around in the woods on TWO escape attempts, and a poor chip once out.

I don’t usually butcher holes. I bogey – A LOT! – but blowing up on holes is unusual for me.

What has been consistent is my driver! Very few “uglies” from the tee, and if you are in play, you got a chance.

On the poker side, Faldo did score a 10th in a 2400 player re-buy tourney on (200+15) PokerStars. Yes it was play chips, but after the re-buy, there is very little difference in how people play – except everyone takes a coin flip for stacks when available.

I got in at around 8pm not ever planning on re-buying. I never did and did not add on either. Obviously playing well and winning coin flips when necessary got me to 2.5 million chips with 10 players left – 5 at each table.

I get AK unsuited on the button. The UTG player with 4 million chips moves all in and the next guy folds.

Well, Faldo tells himself, “He’s got AA or KK. Maybe QQ – maybe (I would have guessed KK if you forced me to choose). I could be in a coin flip or dominated. Easy fold and wait for a better spot. First place is 750,000 free chips. Tenth is 32,000 free chips. Real money, I fold.

But it is 3am and to win this will take me to probably 5am, and I am golfing Huntmore at 11am…………….I call!”

He has AA of course and I get to go to bed. As you already know, the added sleep didn’t help me at all.

Community Card Review - Democrats are Liars and Traitors


Of this there is no debate. Anyone still supporting the Democrat Party needs to be deported, arrested for treason (we are at war) or put in a mental institution for the criminally stupid. Pure and simple.

How is this for a coordinated effort by the liberal media to get the talking point of the Democrats out there:

"The Republicans are holding hostage the credit of the United States of America." – said seven Democrats to their lapdog media, who promptly got the seven “different” quotes on their news shows.

"The only belt being tightened is around the neck of those hostages, the American people." - Democrat #8

"No other American president has been held hostage." - Jesse Jackson Jr., Democrat and communist #9.

Jesse, that piece of shit Obama never had a debt plan and never offered one, you stupid silly son of a bitch! And his budget that was two and a half years late was defeated in a DEMOCRAT dominated Senate 93 to 0, you dumbass!

But by all means Media, get a quote from this complete waste of planet space, and broadcast it so Americans who happen to be black - and racist, and stupid - get riled up.

"The Republicans are holding our economy hostage." - Harry Reid and another six other communists in the Democrat Party. Total quotes now to 16.

"Don't hold America hostage." - Chuck Schumer and another communist #18.

"The Republicans are holding the debt ceiling hostage." - Nancy Pelosi, communist #19. The only thing 19 on Pelosi is her IQ.

I don’t want to hear any more crap from Democrats about civility and compromise. Didn’t we just get a lecture from the Democrats about “working together” and then they come out with these quotes? Well, you want to rumble Democrats? I’m your huckleberry.

Does the entire Democrat cabal use a teleprompter? Not a fresh thought in the entire party. They are just a bunch of parrots, sheep and donkeys.

The Democrats are making the disgusting attempt to turn the Tea Party Republicans into the equivalent of the biggest modern day threat to our country, by saying the Tea Party are using tactics that hurt innocent people. This is a standard Democrat play - say their opponents are doing - what actually what the Democrats ARE doing.

And the entire premise was built on a lie anyway. The United States was never going to default if we did not raise OUR OWN DEBT CEILING! Deciding to go further in debt (planning to borrow even more) has nothing to do with making payments on your debt. If you are going to ignore your own "stop signs" every time - why have them?

Nothing is a bigger threat to innocent people than the spending the Democrats have done in their two years of complete power. Children not born yet are $100,000 in debt, if they decide to work and pay taxes.

The Tea Party Republicans are only trying to Constitutionally make a budget (which the Democrats never did for 2 years) and halt the destruction of our nation in a river of debt. THAT is what they were elected to do – save the nation from Democrats.

The Democrats want to continue to drive us off the cliff, but they say the Republicans are causing the problems by being the adults in the room trying to fix the problem.

Who is the actual hostage taker here? Who is kidnapping the wealth of people not yet born, let alone alive right now? Do you want to talk about who is the real enemy to our country? It is Democrats and every single one of their voters – either thru ignorance or design. It no longer makes any difference to me.

What do you call a president that has manufactured a 16% unemployment rate?

What do you call a president that purposely stagnated the nation’s economic growth rate of less than 1%, when we need a minimum of 3% just to have enough jobs for the people leaving school?

What do you call a president who’s polices doubled the price of gasoline since he took office?

What do you call a president who sold a “stimulus package” on the premise of it creating “shovel ready” jobs to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure, then gave the money to his union buddies for their pension funds, then laughed later that there is no such thing as a “shovel ready” job. Then, the same day the debt ceiling is raised he calls for a new “stimulus package” and increased taxes to pay for the rebuilding of our “infrastructure?”

I call Obama what he is: a communist, a traitor to this country and a lying bucket of cow manure.

My apologies to all cow manure for the inference.

Today is Faldo’s Birthday - It's not a National Holiday Yet???


And to help celebrate, I give you the words to a song, best sung by Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley – “My Way”.

I thought I would let these two light weights share the stage with Faldo. I mean if I can’t help out with the memories of the “little people” on my birthday, what would that say about me?

By Paul Anka (that is three lightweights I helped today!):



And now the end is nearer.
And so I am closer to,
The final curtain.
My friends, I'll make it clear,
I'll state my case of which I'm certain.

I've lived a life that's full.
I traveled each, most every highway.
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Regrets, I've had more than a few.
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do.
And saw it through without exemption.

I planned each charted course.
Each careful step, along the byway.
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Yes there were times I'm sure you knew,
When I bit off more than I could chew.
But through it all,
When there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all,
And I stood tall,
And did it my way.

I've loved, I've laughed and cried.
I've had my fill, my share of losing.
And now, as youth subsides,
I find it all so amusing.

To think, I did all that!
And may I say, not in a shy way.
Oh no, oh no not me.
I did it my way.

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has not.

To say the things he truly feels,
And not the words of one who kneels.

The record shows I took the blows,
And did it my way.

Yes, It was my way.
