Community Card Review - You Are to Blame

Don't look now, but that is your nation outside the right side of the plane.

Obama says you are to blame. You are, but not for the reasons he says. You are to blame for either voting Democrat or not preventing people from voting Democrat.

The reason this nation is in debt is that the people of the United States have been irresponsible.

For a host of reasons, they have ignored the SUPER debt spending and taxing of the Democrats and the debt spending of the Republicans.

The reasons the voters have done this is a whole other matter, and a different article.

Liberalism (socialism - communism) is the reason we are in the situation we are in. Pure and simple.

From the decline in morality (drugs, sex, abortion and - yes - gambling) to the wealth re-distribution models (welfare, food stamps, unemployment insurance, social security, Medicare, growth in government), to the decline in education and work ethic (unions, main stream media, climate change hoax and pushing the communist agenda).

It all has it's base in liberalism. The hippies of the 60's are running this nation and have for about 20 years.

Look back on what those people were then to understand why we are where we are now. Liberalism is destroying this nation ....and it is on purpose.

Obama tells us - after he gave trillions away to federal, state and automotive unions - that we, the taxpayer have to learn to live within our means. Then proposes another half - trillion of spending we don't have - while adding taxes that if collected won't come close to covering the cost.

As a side note, if the Democrats could collect EVERYTHING - which they would if they could - it would pay for our government for about 3 months. Then we would be broke ...again, and no one would have anything left to take.

Our media knows this and reports …..nothing.

Obama says the reason our nation is in debt is because 'the rich' have not paid their fair share. He says the rich have dodged the tax system and therefore are the scofflaws responsible.

This is a barefaced lie, easily proven false, and only the Kool-aid drinking useful idiot liberals belief it anyway.

Our media knows this and reports …..nothing.

A full 86% of the federal taxes are paid by 2% of the population and 50% of the people in this country pay $0 income tax and instead get a "refund" on money they did not even pay in (Earned Income Credit).

Our nation suffers from a spending problem by our government with the root cause being a VOTING problem by our citizens. We get the government we deserve.

After our Constitution was finalized, a woman asked Benjamin Franklin what type of government we had. He stated, "It is a republic, if we can keep it."

Thomas Jefferson predicted our republic would last just 200 years as "it is natural for democracies to morph into dictatorships as soon as the citizenry realizes they can vote the money out of their neighbor's pocket." The Democrat model to be sure. We will barely outlive his prediction.

If you have ever voted Democrat you have the biggest share of the blame for this. If you have always voted Democrat, you are the problem and you are the traitor to this nation. If you have always voted Democrat, then YOU should be paying the most in taxes. You should be over - paying your taxes.

If paying more taxes is the road to utopia, then YOU should be leading the way and giving every extra penny to the government. Show us the way! Live as you want us all to live.

Ah, but liberals never seem to do that. Environmentalists fly to their meetings in corporate jets and take limos to the conference. Income tax hawk liberals already have made or inherited their wealth. Wealthy Hollywood donate their "time" and "name" but never cash.

Obama wants to punish the people who make too much.

I want to punish the people who elected Democrats. Obama thinks the rich have destroyed this nation and wants them punished with taxes. I think the Democrats have done that, so tax them. Democrats vote to raise "other people's taxes", well, let's vote to raise Democrat's taxes.

Regardless of who we tax, we don't have enough money to pay for our debt this way. The only solution is to stop the spending.

We can only do that by removing every Democrat from office and then holding every Republican responsible to fix it this time. If they don't do it, we are either sunk or a third party has to start winning elections.

A revolution is coming - either in the way we vote and how we pick candidates - or the other type. We have only one shot remaining at this.

This nation cannot survive another Democrat president or Congress - EVER!

ThePunk75 Wins His 10th NPP Tourney!

Some things never change. Who is left standing to go for the win?
This is the same movie I walked out on in April for crying out loud!

We welcome one new player (I think) Tommydee804 (unless it is Tommydoo in disguise), but either way Tommy, I need your email.

Only eleven signed up to play the opening round tourney of the 19 signed up for the league so far. I expect more to be in the fray next week.

The scoring is much different in the Home Game set up on

Emphasis will be on finishing at the top, rather than making final tables or surviving at the final table. Points will be awarded only for the top 20% of the participants.

I did slow down the blind structure, so the need to play bingo poker is less. I figured we would get enough of that with it being play chips anyway. But watching the play this first night, it looked pretty much the same. Tough!

We will try this for the rest of 2011 and make an evaluation after this 12 game league.

On to the action:

10 min: Faldo gets hurt early losing flush over flush to KingBing420.
24 min: BKrywko1 (11th) The play chip software does not have re-play or hand history, so if I don’t see it live, I won’t have it. BK was at the other table and I couldn’t follow the action.

26 min: Wingsfancurt (10th) loses a coin flip (AJ) to LittleRedElf (88).
43 min: Mikeniks-Faldo (9th) loses a coin flip (99) to the same KingBing420 (AK).
53 min: Tommydee804 (8th) gets double-teamed by T3chlady (AK) and the winner, Derf-63 (QQ), who takes it down.

1st break:
ThePunk75 6883
LittleRedElf 3390
T3chlady 1997
Derf-63 1619
KingBing420 1442
Absea98 649
Duder1123 520

68 min: T3chlady (7th) has to try with (T8) and a flop of (8 5 2). But LittleRedElf wakes up with (55).

70 min: Duder1123 (6th) blinds out having never played a hand.

73 min: A short-stacked Derf-63 (5th) goes with (AQ) and runs into Absea98 with (AK).
Derf missed the early action due to meetings, but got in to give it a shot.

75 min: KingBing420 (4th) moves in with (AJ) to find ThePunk75 with (JJ).

80 min: LittleRedElf wins a nice pot and our three remaining players, ThePunk75, LittleRedElf and Absea98 are all within a grand of each other!

94 min: Absea98 (3rd) sees his (A4) run into ThePunk75’s (AQ).

Heads up: LittleRedElf 5500 ThePunk75 10000

100 min: LittleRedElf 1500 ThePunk75 14000

105 min: LittleRedElf 5500 ThePunk75 10000

110 min: A SS LittleRedElf (2nd) calls down with (A3) and a flop with an [A] in it, but ThePunk75 is holding (AK).

Congratulations to ThePunk75 on his 10th NPP win, as he moves past Nahanni74 on the all-time list!

1st – ThePunk75 – 4.82 points
2nd – LittleRedElf – 3.40 pts
3rd – Absea98 – 2.78 pts
4th – KingBing420
5th – Derf-63
6th – Duder1123
7th – T3chlady
8th – Tommydee804
9th – Mikeniks-Faldo
10th – Wingsfancurt
11th – Bkrywko1

Take heart everyone. All of the point getters but ThePunk75 already have seats in the NPP Final. Missing week 1 didn't hurt anyone really. ThePunk got a leg up (twss).

Operation Fast and Furious – Border Agents (and 200 Mexican Citizens) Killed by the Democrat’s Attempt to Attack the 2nd Amendment

$500 million of stimulus money to a “green” energy solar panel company - with no customers – who then donate to the Obama Campaign coffers and go out of business in less than 2 years. But at least no one we rely on to secure our borders got killed.

From the Natural News and editor Mike Adams

“You just gotta love the audacity of the Obama Administration and its active staging of crimes in order to achieve political goals. Operation Fast and Furious is the most recent example of a Democrat-run criminal conspiracy pursued for the ultimate purpose of dismantling the Bill of Rights.

It involved ATF agents running a criminal scheme that sold literally tens of thousands of guns to Mexican drug gangs, after which the government planned to call for "gun sales restrictions" following the wave of gun violence that would inevitably result.

There was only one problem with the government's evil plan, however -- some ATF agents blew the whistle, and then the whole conspiracy exploded in their faces.
Now even the mainstream media, who usually won't harm the Democrat Party, is all over Operation Fast and Furious. Heck, the LA Times even has an entire special section dedicated to it, and the paper is actually producing some decent stories on the subject:

One of their newest stories reports, "Top Mexican officials say the U.S. kept them in the dark. One official was stunned to learn that the cartel hit men who killed her brother had assault rifles from Fast and Furious in their arsenal."

Here's a conspiracy fact right in your face -- and the government has now been forced to admit to it!

Even CBS is breaking some of the news on all this, including publicizing newly-released secret audio tapes that reveal Agent MacAllister and Howard (the gun dealer) expressing concern that "...whistleblower ATF special agent John Dodson has further evidence that could be damaging to the government."

This is total government criminality caught in action, folks. And if you really want the whole story on Operation Fast and Furious, read up on

What's clear about Operation Fast and Furious is that it involved not only the ATF but also the White House.

The LA Times and other mainstream media papers are incorrectly reporting it as a "failed sting operation," but that's just the cover story. In reality, Operation Fast and Furious was a raging success! It achieved its stated goal which was placing thousands of rifles and pistols into the hands of Mexican drug gangs, then hoping enough violence would spill over into the USA that the American people would call for gun sales restrictions.

Whether you admire the Second Amendment or not, you've got to admit this is a particularly insidious conspiracy because it has the government directly promoting sales of weapons to criminals. Normally when you walk into a gun store, you can't buy a weapon without passing an FBI background check. So there's a safety mechanism in place to prevent guns from being purchased by felons or non-citizens.

But in this conspiracy operation, the ATF specifically told gun store owners (such as Lone Wolf in Arizona) to sell guns to criminals even if they didn't pass the background checks. This is just one example of how the U.S. federal government has become a criminal organization that promotes gun violence in America.

Remember the conventional cover story for all this? That the guns were going to be "tracked" to see where they ended up?

There's just one problem with this whole story: There were no tracking devices installed on any of the guns being sold to criminals. Thus, the whole idea of tracking these guns is ludicrous, and the government's official cover story falls apart (yet again). The purpose of Fast and Furious wasn't to TRACK guns but to ARM CRIMINALS and then hope enough bodies would pile up that the government could call for restrictions against the Second Amendment.

In fact, even though the government has been caught red handed in this operation, it has already begun to roll out the gun sales restrictions as it planned all along!

Documents acquired by InfoWars (and also separately by NaturalNews) reveal that gun shops throughout Arizona, New Mexico and Texas have been ordered by the ATF to report any sale of more than one rifle or pistol to any single person. Thus, even though the FBI already runs background checks on purchasers of firearms, the ATF is now creating a second layer of burdensome paperwork on many sales of firearms. Importantly, this adds no additional background check security to the gun purchasing process, which is already subjected to FBI approval anyway.

Even worse, this entire process is being done completely outside the law, using solely the regulatory bullying of the ATF itself -- the very same agency that is technically a rogue government agency steeped in criminal behavior.

We have a lawless government right now. [NPP Editor: Like no federal budget submitted for 2 years as constitutionally demanded.]

Did you ever notice how the federal government never faces any consequences when it breaks the law, but if you or I sold guns to Mexican drug criminals, we'd be facing decades in prison? As we've all seen from numerous examples, the government today is a lawless, criminal gang that breaks its own laws with impunity.

There's no telling what the government is planning and plotting right now in its evil scheme to destroy our civil rights and unleash a total police state in America. What Operation Fast and Furious really proves is that the U.S. federal government will openly endanger innocent lives and break any laws it wants in pursuit of crushing freedom in America.

It's not even about the guns, you see. It's about the tactics that the U.S. government now uses to achieve its political aims. Rather than going to the People and asking for their rational views on security versus freedom, the government stages its own catastrophes and crimes in order to get people to REACT so that freedoms can then be stolen from everyone.”

Will the last one holding the last copy of The US Constitution please save it and hide it so some life form in the future will see that our species did have the perfect government model. Too bad we failed to follow it.

Douge2’s Humor Corner - Anatomy

This is why men die sooner than women. It's all the women's fault!

The Disease Might be Better Than a Cure

Of course I won't laugh," said the female doctor. "I'm a professional. In over twenty years I've never laughed at a patient."

"Okay then," said guy said, and he proceeded to drop his trousers, revealing the smallest male part the doctor had ever seen. Its length and width was almost identical to an AAA battery.

Unable to control herself, she tried to stop a giggle, but it just came out. And then she started laughing at the fact that she was laughing. Feeling very badly that she had laughed at the man's part, she composed herself as well as she could.

"I am so sorry," she said. "I don't know what came over me. On my honor as a doctor and a lady, I promise that won't happen again. Now, tell me, what seems to be the problem?"

"It's swollen," he replied.

She ran out of the room.

[Ed. Note: I heard that this is what happened. Yeah, that’s right. I only heard of this.]

Christmas All Year Round

Breasts are like electric trains.
Both were created for the children, but it's the fathers who play with them.

A Matter of Perspective

I stopped by a dealership yesterday for a look at a new car. I took my selection out for a test drive.

The salesman (wearing an Obama "change" lapel pin) sat in the passenger seat describing the truck and all its "wonderful" options. The seats were of particular interest.

He explained that the seats directed warm air to your butt in the winter and directed cool air to your butt in the summer heat.

Feeling like messing with his mind, I mentioned that this must be a Republican car. Looking a bit angry, he asked why I thought it was a Republican car.

I explained that if it were a Democrat car, the seats would blow smoke up your ass year-round.

How Many Would Be Interested in a NPP Play Chip League?

Anahi Gonzales wants to play. She told me her screen name is Want_Faldo.

I could set the tourneys up for starting on September 27th on the PokerStars Home Games System.

Let me know by email or comment on the blog. Feedback please.

We will probably lose some (a lot) but may pick up a few (none). But I am willing to set it up now that fall is here.

As for Faldo’s poker work, there is nothing in the real arena. I just don’t have the fire to play ‘competitively’ right now, for a few reasons. One thing I do know about the players I play against; if I am not at the top of my game, I might as well start cooing and looking for statues to poop on as soon as I sit down.

As for the Play Chip wars, I still play both tournaments and SNG’s while watching TV or even studying chess, or playing three or four tourneys at a time. Yes, I have to multi-task or I get bored. No sense over-studying the players for play chips.

My success in tourneys is much better (final tables scored) but my SNG percentages are down. Go figure. The sample size is not big enough to know for sure, but I think increased aggressiveness is helping in the MTT tourneys but hurting in the SNG’s.

So I backed off some of the pressure in the SNG’s and won 3 straight on three different sites. Again, too small a sample size to determine validity, but something worked. Maybe I just got cards at the right time for a change.

Let me know one way or the other about the Play Chip League.

And anyone have any suggestions on how I can get Anahi to stop stalking Faldo?

Chess Magic - Never Give Up!

Black to move and win!

Admittedly, this one is a little tougher. Ok, alot tougher. I had some complaints that these puzzles were way too easy. Well here is one I hope doesn't send you to your chess computer for the answer.

If you are not sure you found it, my suggestion is to come up with the 2 or 3 possible moves and rank them in order you think they are right.

Also write each solution down all the way to the end, including the loser's move you thought he would make. Many times we find what we think was the solution because we make a "not best" move for the losing side.

This doesn't happen to Faldo of course, but I have heard mere chess mortals sometimes do that.

In this case, Black has a superior piece advantage (a Queen for a Knight and two pawns), as White sacrificed the Queen for the checkmate threat in three moves of: 1. Rh3+ Bh4, 2. Rhxh4+ Kg8, 3. Rh8 mate.

So Black has his hands full. First Black has to get out of the mate and then just win baby! (A little Al Davis football lingo there). Remember to take your solutions out to the end (checkmate, obvious resign or material advantage).

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

The Community Card Review – Unions Are Worse Than Jihad Muslims

Unions are the enemy within America - that are Americans. That is what is so insidious about them.

Funny how they are not out in front of the White House with their 'rent-a-mob' with a Democrat living in there.

President of the Teamsters Jimmy Hoffa, Jr., tells the President of the United States that – he, the President – has at his disposal, an army of union members ready to “Take out these son of a bitches!”

The ‘son’s a bitches’ Hoffa wants to take out -

I presume in a more public way than his father was taken out by Jimmy Jr.'s bosses - are the Tea Party. The Tea Party are the people of the United States of America that want our government to return to following the Constitution and a Judeo-Christian capitalist system.

The people who do not want their children’s children paying for the debt of Barack Hussein Obama. Many Tea Party people are forced to be union members. So Hoffa wants thousands of his own union 'brothers' taken out also.

The President of the United States then smiled and shook hands with this despicable piece of human debris. Obama praised Hoffa in his speech. It was one piece of debris shaking hands with another piece of debris.

The Democrat Party is nothing but a collection of communist thugs only interested in power. Little Jimmy Hoffa Jr. is now a spokesmen for the people that murdered his father. This is proof positive of total lack of decency in liberals.

Liberals will join with the lowest forms of life for the sake of liberalism, the power over others, and the cushy lifestyle it gives them.

Let’s be honest here. Jimmy Hoffa Jr. sells out his father and works with his father’s killers, so he doesn’t have to do any real work in his life. Pathetic.

These types of people are the Democrat Party. Traitors (Sean Penn), Racist preachers (Reverend Wright), domestic terrorists (William Ayres), communists (Bill King – UAW) and USA haters (Michelle Obama).

Has anyone considered the irony of unions and the Democrat Party celebrating Labor Day in front of a company they both destroyed in a city they both destroyed?

Nothing, and I mean nothing, epitomizes the destruction of lives and the abject pain and poverty that Democrats and unions have caused the people of this nation at General Motors and the City of Detroit. Detroit – at over 15% - has the highest unemployment rate in the NATION, even with the cooked statistics the Democrat Party puts out.

Detroit is as good a place as any for liberals to celebrate the success of organized labor - since there are not any in the first place.

How well does the alliance of government and organized labor work? Look at Detroit. Look at Chicago. Look at Toledo.

Look at Michigan. Look at California.

Look at our failed education system. Look at the cost of a college education. Look at our dependence of foreign oil. Look at the businesses and jobs driven out of this country.

Open your eyes and look!

Then get ready for the civil war that is coming. Don’t want to fight? Too bad, they are coming for you anyway and your money and freedom.

Macanudo – The #1 Cigar in the USA

Why – I don’t know.

It tastes good and certainly built high quality and smokes just fine. But I don’t see what is so special about it.

Don’t get me wrong. I am not trying to put down the brand. Not at all. You can’t find my two previously mentioned favorites - Licenciados and La Flor del Caney - at a cigar bar or even a small cigar store. You usually have to order my top choices on – line.

But every cigar seller carries Macanudo and it is always a safe choice for a good cigar.

This cigar is the standard and is the price barometer. At usually around $125 for 20, or $6 a cigar per box – $8 per single - the rest of the cigar prices tell you whether you got a ‘premium’ or a ‘cheapo’ in your hand (twss).

My Licenciados go for around $90 for 25, which puts them in the ‘cheap’ column, but I see then as an absolute steal at that price.

Just like wine - you sometimes get what you pay for, you sometimes find a bargain and sometimes you get ripped off.

By the way, Licenciados used to go for $75 a box but demand is driving the price up. All my bragging on that cigar is now killing me! Good job, Faldo.

Anyway, back to the Macanudo.

From the company General Cigar, the Macanudo originated in Jamaica in 1868, Macanudo was introduced to the US market by General Cigar in 1971, widely known for its mild flavor and body. Due to unfavorable conditions in Jamaica, such as the weather, Macanudo cigars are now produced in the Dominican Republic.

All Macanudo cigars are made with the finest Connecticut shade wrappers, mild yet flavorful twice-aged Dominican fillers, and binders grown in the San Andres and Tuxtla Valley of Mexico. The result is a consistent cigar that always delivers a distinctively smooth and mellow taste.

These great cigars are perfect for both men and women because of the smooth, robust taste and are best known for their smoothness and consistency.

General Cigar is one of very few manufacturers that actually plants, grows, harvests, and processes its own Connecticut shade wrappers; in fact, General is probably the number-two grower in the Connecticut River Valley, second only to an individual farmer named Oliver Thrall.

Macanudo does have specialty releases of their cigars; special years, specially aged types, a maduro and a robust strength. All made with the same high quality and consistency.

Macanudo is #1 for a reason. You really can’t go wrong choosing this brand.

There is no better example of liberal weakness and utter failure than the site of the New York 9/11 attack. Bill Clinton caused it by his weakness in foreign policy admitted Bin Laden himself.

And ten years later, there is still nothing more at the site but a hole in the ground - which liberals can't tell their asses from.

A free market capitalist system would have re-built the towers - bigger, better and in record time!

But the companies and jobs used it as an excuse to leave New York for lower taxes. The truth is New York doesn't need that office space anymore. Any business that can flee liberal cities and the liberals running them, does.

And now a paid advertisement Faldo rejected - on the ten year anniversary of the worst main land attack by a foreign enemy:

"From the NY Times to Jihadists everywhere.

Is your terror cell living in terror?
Is your safe house not that safe?

If you want your sleeper cell to sleep the NY Times!

Jihadists everywhere depend on the NY Times for the information you cannot get anywhere else! Information comes from liberals inside the US government and we print it just for you!

Here is a testimonial from Jihadist Leader, I’shav Herboush: "I saved my sleeper cell at the last minute, thanks to the NY Times!"

Did you know your phone calls were being traced?
Did you know your money transfers were being intercepted?

Well, now thanks to the NY Times, you do! Terrorists around the globe depend on the NY Times to stay one step ahead of the infidels, and any Republican administration!"

Another testimonial from Mi'balz Zarhari: "I re-routed my cash transfers a different way, thanks to the NY Times!"

You will find all of the secret stuff that the Great Satan is doing to protect itself and to stop you from future attacks!

Plus we have exciting bonus features like daily attacks on the infidels and their capitalist system by Maureen O'Doud, Paul Krugman, Tom Freidman, and a real hater of the USA, Muhammad Al’Stram.

Not to mention our entire front page is designed to demoralize the infidels and give Jihadists - and liberals - new hope!

Gift subscriptions are available.

We at the NY Times offer quantity discounts for your really large sleeper cells, and educational discounts for your training facilities.

Read the NY Times and your sleeper cells can sleep safely!

Even in the deepest darkest cave, you will be the first to know what the infidels are planning next to stop you.

The NY Times. the Jihadist's …and liberal’s best friend!"

Douge2’s Humor Corner – Doctor Visits

If Annette Melton is what a biker chick looks like...Faldo is heading to the nearest Schwinn dealer!

I’ll Bet Blackbeard Never Had This Problem

A young woman goes to her doctor's office, afraid of the strange development on the inside of her thighs . . . a green spot on the inside of each.

"They won't wash off, they won't scrape off and they seem to be getting worse."

The doctor assures her he'll get to the bottom of the problem, and tells her not to worry until the tests come back.

A few days later, the woman's phone rings. Much to her relief, it's the doctor. She immediately begs to know what's causing the spots.

The doctor says, "You're perfectly healthy - - there's no problem. But I'm wondering, is your boyfriend a Harley guy?"

The woman stammers, "Why, yes, but how did you know?"

"Tell him his earrings aren't real gold."

The Full Latte

An Irish woman of advanced age visited her physician to ask his advice on reviving her husband's libido.

‘What about trying Viagra?,” asked the doctor

“Not a chance”, she said. “He won't even take an aspirin.”

“Not a problem,” replied the doctor. “Give him an 'Irish Viagra'. It's when you drop the Viagra tablet into his coffee. He won't even taste it. Give it a try and call me in a week to let me know how things went.”

It wasn't a week later when she called the doctor, who directly inquired as to her progress.

The poor dear exclaimed, “Oh, faith, bejaysus and begorrah! T'was horrid! Just terrible, doctor!”

“Really? What happened?” asked the doctor.

“Well, I did as you advised and slipped it in his coffee and the effect was almost immediate. He jumped straight up, with a twinkle in his eye and with his pants a-bulging fiercely! With one swoop of his arm, he sent me cups and tablecloth flying, ripped me clothes to tatters and took me then and there passionately on the tabletop! It was a
nightmare, I tell you, an absolute nightmare!”

“Why so terrible?” asked the doctor, “Do you mean the sex your husband provided wasn't good?”

“Freakin' jaysus, 'twas the best sex I've had in 25 years! But sure as I'm sittin' here, I'll never be able to show me face in Starbucks again!”

Faldo Finished 7th in World Sports Exchange Freeroll

Bigbrimar showing another great hobby out there on Long Lake near Alpena. Nice smallmouth bass there, Bri!

World Sports Exchange is still open to US players for poker. It is a sports book site with a poker room. Not much traffic on the poker site, but that is not why I am not playing for money there. I cannot find an easy way to get money to the site. I never could even before Black Friday.

The situation there is the same as it is at Poker4Ever – very little bling in this site, so I am playing in only the freerolls.

I probably would not put money in there right now given the current banking situation, but if I could safely – I would.

The tourney had 141 entries. My big break came when my (JJ) ran into (QQ), but I flopped a [J].

I got another break - this time from the competition - when I moved in with (Ad Qd) and got called by some big stacks holding (KT) and (Ac6c). I held on and tripled up!

After making the final table, my luck ran out. I had to go with (Kc Js) on a flop of [3h Ks 7h] and I was called by a (Kh 8h). The villain made his flush.

I’m losing to flushes at final tables lately. The ghost of Theedouble*d strikes again!

Faldo will probably stay away from the casinos, poker rooms and live poker games until after the New Year. I’ll just have to make due with a few freeroll tourneys and play chip SNG’s on-line for my poker fix for the rest of 2012.

Faldo is planning a return to the tournament chess circuit for the fall of 2011. Weather and tournament schedules will determine whether it is golf, chess or football watching. I will sprinkle in some on-line poker in there somewhere.

This plan will require brushing up on chess opening and endgame theory, not to mention some on – line and computer practice games.

Now I have a new problem of what to do with all my spare time.

The Labor Day Golf Weekend was a Disappointment.

I got 36 holes in on Friday by playing with two balls - on 18 holes - by myself. Good thing I have a lot of practice at that.

Even so, my performance was terrible by the way (twss).

I did not play again until Monday. Not because Faldo was spent (twss), but because every golf partner I have was ‘busy’. Some were up north fishing, some were attending college football games, some were injured, some had to work, some were at hockey practice, some were running and/or participating in 30 fantasy football leagues at once. Some even used the excuse there “were at family functions.” How lame.

Oh, and Davethedog had Mary Kay commitments and dishes to dry.

I think you are all familiar with my 2011 Faldo’s Caddie tryouts.

I even decided to give the ladies a chance to tee it up with Faldo this weekend. I asked every one of them I have ever known – even as far back a grade school, several times if they were available – with phone calls, emails, texts, flowers, candy-grams, Thong of the Month gift cards. No takers.

I even tried “Imdesperate dot com” and “Ipaycashjustforcompany dot net”. Uhhhh… sale.

Could it be that Faldo is not as handsome and fascinating as he thinks he is?
Naw, that can’t be it.

Monday as you may remember was the worst weather day of the weekend. So, naturally, that is when Faldo gets to return to the links. Another 36 holes – only this time with Bigbrimar and Bronco76.

They proceed to kick Faldo’s butt on three of the four nines! Bigbrimar shot his best rounds of the year, while Faldo continued to add chapters to his best-selling book;

“How to Screw Up Great Drives Even From the Center of the Fairway in Perfect Position and With a Great Lie.”

Subtitled: “How to Double-Bogey Lying One and Only 100 yards Out!” – or – “How to One-Putt for a Snowman” – or – “How to Make Sure Your Third Chip Attempt on a Hole Finally Stays on the Green.”

And it was embarrassing to have to bring in earth-moving equipment in to replace the divots I was making.

I did put my long woods back in the bag (twss) for another chance. I had taken them out because I was slicing them just ever so slightly out of play.

But recently the long irons I was hitting so well in June started chunking, skulling, worm-burning and shanking. So I thought I would try the woods again.

Well now I was hitting the ball with the woods - so far into the woods on the right - I did not have to waste any time looking for it. Bonus!

That gave me more time to pick up the club after it somehow ended up forty yards in front of where I was standing when I attempted the shot. How it got out there so far and fast – I'm sorry. I can't recall.

My clubs may need new grips. Yeah, that’s the problem……the clubs. It can’t be Faldo’s swing being off. Naw, that’s not it. No need to hit the driving range to figure it out.

Driving ranges are for sissies.

You can't make this stuff up!

Hope you enjoyed your Labor Day. This is who and what your tax dollars are used for.

How is that hope and change working out for you?

The Community Card Review - Once Upon an America

As I sit out on my deck watching a light drizzle while having my morning coffee, I wondered just how many great mornings like this my country and I have left. Because…

Once upon an America,

You could buy whatever light bulb you wanted. The government left the decision about lights in your own home up to you and the manufacturers of light bulbs. It worked.

Nobody complained about holiday decorations, or where the America flag could be flown, or even wondered if “under God” was Constitutional or not. It worked.

Kids didn’t learn about sex in school. Parents, teachers and principals handled school bullies, kids graduated knowing how to read, write and do math. They could even read their diplomas – that didn’t contain spelling errors. And teachers were not more interested in union rallies and political indoctrination than teaching. It worked.

We didn’t have to define what marriage was, what a family was or what the meaning of “is” is. It worked.

It was illegal to be here illegally. There were no sanctuary cities, only American cities. It worked.

You could buy a piece of land and keep it until you decided to sell it, and the government would not force you to sell it to preferred developers who donated to the Democrat Party. That was – and still is, but ignored – law of the land. It worked.

You could fly the friendly skies without being groped or the government taking a nude picture of you first. Those in charge of security actually focused on potential troublemakers – not on toddlers, nuns and 90-year old grandmothers. It worked.

Some women enjoyed being whistled at. Some thought it was rude. But nobody thought it was grounds for a lawsuit. It worked.

The government did not tell you how much healthcare you could afford or how much your doctor would be paid, because you paid for it yourself, and it worked.

The government didn’t force banks to lend money to people who couldn’t pay it back. Real Estate was a solid investment. It worked.

The government didn’t decide what companies could fail and which ones got propped up for political donations. The people who bought things and used services decided all that. It worked.

The government did not own car companies or told you what cars to buy. It worked.

The government wouldn’t dare tell an American company where they can build a new plant, because they figured the company knew best – which they did. It worked.

The government did not dictate what could be in your favorite food or the method it was to be cooked in. Trans-fats were not outlawed. Popcorn had butter, and food tasted great. It worked.

We were proud of our independence from government because we could manage our own affairs without government help. It worked.

The First Lady would not dare tell you what your children should eat. And it worked.

The President of the United States didn’t tell you that your grandmother should just take a pain pill instead of getting a life saving operation. But that was before government took over the medical field, provided school breakfasts, school lunches, school dinners. And it worked.

The President didn’t abuse interns and the First Ladies were proud of their country before their husband got the nomination for president, and the First Family’s preacher said “God bless America” instead of “God damn America.” It worked.

Attempting to blow up the Pentagon would have meant a life sentence, not a ticket to the inner circle of the President. It worked.

Anyone writing a song glorifying the killing of cops would have been vilified. Not invited to the White House for a Culture Night celebration. It worked.

A company could hire or fire you based on your performance. Not on how well you met a quota system designed to keep government off its back. It worked. And people worked.

So how about now in America? Has liberalism worked?

Chess Magic: I Got Rooked!

White to move and win:

A man's home is his castle - until the judge throws his ass out and gives it to the courtesan. But I digress.

And a man's castle are his rooks!

The material is even, but Black has a pesky passed pawn (a pawn with no enemy pawns in front of him). Black's A-file pawn grows in power and as a threat as it moves closer to the back rank. If this pawn gets to a1, Black's King will have two wives (another Queen), which would be death for White.

I could start the jokes on how Black is also dead with two wives, but never mind.

Since the White King is still relatively safe compared to his enemy, he has a military decision to make.

So what does he do first? Attack or block the pawn?

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