Pre01 Wins for the Second Time This Quarter!

Claudine Keane waits patiently in NPP player's suite for the winner - Pre01.
Staking a claim as one of the players to beat this quarter, Pre01 moves into contention with another win. Pre01 cannot be here every week, so this is even a more impressive feat.

T3chlady opens a lead on the pack with Derf-63 improving his standing also.
But the race is close and the third quarter seat is still anyone’s for the taking! So there is still plenty of time to challenge for the lead.
Speaking of not being here – Faldo has to miss next week, so I would appreciate if some of the rest of you would return to fill out the tournament PLEASE!
On to the action:
25 min: Absea98 (12th) goes with two pair but ThePunk75 has a straight.
32 min: Suetman123 (11th) pair of Queens runs into Derf-63’s pair of Aces.
42 min: Tomservo2 (10th) blinds out.
43 min: K9isadog (9th) blinds out
46 min: Wingsfancurt (8th) has two pair but KingBing420 hits her straight.
1st break:
95corolla    3270
Derf-63    3070
T3chlady   2845
Mikeniks-Faldo   2630
KingBing420    2435
Pre01    1990
ThePunk75    1760
72 min: KingBing420 (7th) runs into Derf-63’s (JJ).

90 min: Mikeniks-Faldo (5th) runs into Pre01’s full house.
Five minutes later - all hell breaks loose as Pre01 goes wild!
96 min: A SS T3chlady (4th) goes with (AK) but Pre01 (Ah 3h) pairs his Threes.
97 min: Derf-63 (3rd) sees his pair lost to Pre01’s two pair.
98 min: ThePunk75 (2nd) has to go with (99) but Pre01 hits his flush!

Faldo Speaks on the Zimmerman – Martin

A citizen without a gun is a slave or a victim. 
Once Faldo speaks, there is nothing left to say. The truth was now spoken so let’s move on. Faldo is glad to be of service.
Some Hollywood liberal by the name of David Simon – a liberal who makes his living making TV shows about violence and killing – says that after the not guilty verdict in the Zimmerman trail, he was ashamed to be an American. Other things he said, like “its open season on blacks in Florida” are just insane.
Well I got news for you Simon. You are not a true American and real Americans are ashamed you call yourself one. You are even too stupid to see what a hypocrite you are. You make your living off of stories depicting dangerous black men. You promote this stuff. Simon, you are a liberal – which means you are mentally ill.
This is a tragic story of a young man being justifiably killed because he was not allowed to freely go about his business of robbing people’s homes undetected. The deceased was in a neighborhood looking to steal things and leave. But detected he was, and Martin felt his rights as a thief were being infringed upon.
Now normally thieves will call it a day and try their luck tomorrow or at least at another location. But this thief was high enough on – something - to take the infringement personal. It was not just  about people wanting to keep the property they earned. It was about Martin being dissed – and by a ‘cracker’ no less.
So the deceased attacked a young man - Zimmerman - the citizen who was watching his ‘hood’ because there had been so many robberies lately. Probably most done by the hard working thief Martin.
Zimmerman called for help prior to the attack started by Martin. Zimmerman called 911. Zimmerman then tried to fend off the attack started by Martin and pleaded for assistance at the time of the attack. With no help arriving, Zimmerman pulled his self defense weapon and stopped the aggression – started by Martin. Period. Case closed.
Closed case - except for liberals, the liberal prosecutors and the liberal media - who wished it to be a race baiting event. A witch hunt and media frenzy was started by liberals fanning the flames of racism when none existed. The liberal media even coined a new race for the event calling Zimmerman a “white Hispanic”. So all of you with heritage from Peru, you are now classified as white Hispanics. The media hid all facts relevant to what and who Zimmerman was really up against that night - from the public.
Well the verdict of the sham trail came out with the only verdict that would be justice in a corrupt liberal persecution, Not Guilty. Several fired sheriffs came to that conclusion months earlier and lost their jobs because they would not bend to liberal prosecuting attorneys or their liberal agenda of race baiting and trying to unarm citizens for their eventual enslavement in a communist United States.
As a poker player, I have to look at the EV (expected value) of the plays I make and the cards I am dealt. I suggest the Democrat Party and the liberals who are upset with the verdict, do the same thing. If they look at the balance sheet of what was lost and gained, they won’t feel the need to act like they are still upset.
Well, they really are not upset as I will prove to you in just a second, but at least you will all realize what a complete acting job liberal compassion really is. The Democrats have looked at the balance sheet. Trust me, they do it more than capitalists do.
Ok, what did the liberals lose with the death of a young thug so early in life?
-         Minimum of 2 abortions performed on women the thug would have impregnated,
-         A minimum of 4 welfare children had by women the thug would have impregnated but they had the child instead,
-          Around 40 years of a prison cell vacant – and all the tax money saved that did not go to a union thru civil jobs,
-          Around 10+ years of welfare for the thug himself,
-          70 years of healthcare paid for by the people the thug robs when not in jail or impregnating welfare moms,
-          One less criminal – which means slightly less crime – which means less union and lawyer jobs again,
-          And last but not least, the Democrats may have made a few Hispanic voters actually angry - as they thru a so-called Hispanic to the wolves - to shore up their Black voting block.
But what did the Democrats gain? Well gain they did, which is why their rage is all an act. Democrats are happier than pigs in mud about this entire tragedy. Heck, the Not Guilty verdict was exactly what they wanted from this. Here is why:
+ More votes for the Democrat Party. Not only might this cause their base to go to the polls without bribes or busses loaded with pot and booze to take them to the polls – but dead Democrats vote more often and more consistently than living Democrats. And living Democrats are sometimes too stupid to even vote correctly. Martin can now vote many more times and in many more precincts and states than he could as a living Democrat.
+ This verdict can be a rally cry for race baiting for another decade at least.
+ White guilt with white liberals will now be so heavy that even the election of a Black communist Muslim as president for two terms of vacations, wasteful spending, corruption and decimation of the US economy, will not be enough. They will vote for Obama for a third term or even forever!
+ Taxpayer money was wasted by the bushel baskets of millions on liberal lawyers and judges – which in turn some is donated to the Democrat Party who makes it all possible.
+ The media had a story to create to take Obama’s destruction of the country, his ineptness, dereliction of duty and his corruption off the radar.
+ It gave the media riots and protests to incite – and then cover.
+ it hides the truth about what Democrat policies have done to the Black families and our urban cities a little longer. Every bankrupted and / or run down city or state is Democrat controlled for decades. But now that still won’t be discussed.
+ it hides the fact that real Black crime on both black and non-black Americans is 20 times more likely than White on Black crime.
+ It hides from the nation the story of a black man walking into a Detroit area Dollar Store, cold-bloodedly killing the white male clerk and abducting the young white female clerk. She was later found raped and dead. There will be no media circus over this one folks. Obama will not be bringing this case up in national press conference.
I think if a Democrat or a liberal ever could tell the truth, they would smile slyly and say, “Yeah, this worked out perfectly for us. Our machine is turning out more welfare/criminal/illegal Democrat voters by the millions. Another dead one is worth it. (snicker, snicker)”
Meanwhile, my fellow Americans paying for this fiasco – keep your powder dry - it will be needed soon. Something going to give…and soon.

Detroit: Bankrupt, Obama Lied - A Proud Day to Be a Democrat

Instead of Clinton, it should just say 'Democrat'.
Let's add up just a little of the the carnage:

Detroit has been under Democrat rule for 70 years....and has been destroyed.

My blogger friend Paw Paw (see blog link below on right side) has the video of Communist Obama stating that he would not let Detroit fail. No shock to people with their heads not in their rectums - HE LIED!

Al Sharpton is calling for mass demonstrations and violence this weekend at Democrat meccas thru out the nation, in honor of a dead criminal. More destruction of black neighborhoods on the premise that this will really show "whitee" what's up. Good thinking. That will help no one.

But also good thinking you don't try that "stuff" in non-liberal areas - or Al - you would really see what's up.

When I was running for office and trying to educate people - BEFORE it was too late - I spoke and wrote about Democrat policies. I asked the question of Democrats; Please name ONE Democrat policy that worked out? Just one.

I didn't get a single response - except for a few "Social Security" comments. Mostly I got blank stares as most Democrats don't even know what the party really is all about.

When I responded to the Social Security try with, "Well, the program is bankrupt, the SS Fund money was stolen and spent by LBJ (Democrat) to pay for the Viet Nam War, it's paying for things it was never intended to pay for, and it is now simply a ponzi scheme that will collapse soon. In addition, FDR (Democrat) set it up as an extra tax gimmick because he and his fellow Democrats never thought people would live long enough to collect. Want to try again?"

And they could not.

My friends; liberalism is a mental illness. We could pity them if they were not dragging us into the sewer with them.

A civil war is brewing. Keep your powder dry.

LittleRedElf Wins for the 3rd Time in 2013

A view from LittleRedElf's NPP penthouse. 
 And re-opens his lead at the top of the Walk of Fame, on top of getting right in the thick of the 3rd quarter race! The Elf bested a nice turnout of eighteen players, with only two no-shows. Thanks everyone!

Meanwhile, T3chlady moves into the 3rd Quarter lead with another strong showing tonight. Way to go Lady!

As for your host, Faldo had a rough evening. No pre-tourney nap, no dinner and no luck. The NPP server crashed and Faldo spent the entire afternoon and early evening trying to save NPP files and history! Mission accomplished, but was working on it while playing in the tourney. That didn’t help Faldo’s results any.

Still a lot to do before the NPP database is fully functional again. But at least the caddy applications……er, …I mean the poker records were saved!
On to the action:

19 min: Derf-63 (18th) sees his flush run into KingBing420’s full house! Ouch!

21 min: Sanster89 (17th) runs into LittleRedElf’s trip deuces.

Faldo Injured, But Here Are Some Golf Quotes

Faldo has Tennis Elbow and got it golfing. An attempted draw shot that was a little chunky, but one Faldo has hit hundreds of times. This time the tendon at the elbow was having none of that. It felt like a dagger stuck in the forearm.
The doctors have said a month off, then stretching exercises for 2 weeks, then function exercises for a month, then strengthening exercises for another month, then ball hitting off of tees on the driving range to see how it feels.

I rested it a week and am I’m playing tomorrow.  I tried this last week too and for some reason it hurt worse. Go figure. But I am sure it is ok now. Now for some golf quotes:

“I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother and father." - Greg Norman

"You can make a lot of money in this game. Just ask my ex-wives. Both of them are so rich that neither of their husbands work." - Lee Trevino

"I'm not saying my golf game went bad, but if I grew tomatoes, they'd come up sliced." - Lee Trevino

"The first time I played the Masters, I was so nervous I drank a bottle of rum before I teed off. I shot the happiest 83 of my life." - Chi Chi Rodriquez

"Golf is a fascinating game. It has taken me nearly forty years to discover that I can't play it." -  Ted Ray

"If a lot of people gripped a knife and fork the way they do a golf club, they'd starve to death." - Sam Snead

"My goal this year is basically to find the fairways." - Lauri Paterson

"I know I'm getting better at golf because I'm hitting fewer spectators." - Gerald Ford

"Give me the fresh air, a beautiful partner, and a nice round of golf... and you can keep the fresh air and the round of golf." - Jack Benny

"It took me seventeen years to get 3,000 hits in baseball. I did it in one afternoon on the golf course." - Hank Aaron

"These greens are so fast I have to hold my putter over the ball and hit it with the shadow." - Sam Snead

"Golf and sex are about the only things you can enjoy without being good at." - Jimmy Demaret

"The reason the pro tells you to keep your head down is so you can't see him laughing." - Phyllis Diller

"After all these years, it's still embarrassing for me to play on the American golf tour. Like the time I asked my caddie for a sand wedge and he came back ten minutes later with a ham on rye." - Chi Chi Rodriguez

You can't go into a shop and buy a good game of golf." -Sam Snead

"You've got just one problem...you stand too close to the ball after you hit it."
- Nik Faldo

"If profanity had an influence on the flight of the ball, you'd be a much better golfer by now." – Nik Faldo

"My favorite shots are the practice swing and the conceded putt. The rest cannot be mastered." - Lord Robertson

"If you really want to get better at golf, go back and take it up at a much earlier age."
- Nik Faldo

"There is no such thing as 'natural touch.' Touch is something you create by hitting millions of golf balls. - Lee Trevino

"Forget your opponents; always play against par." - Sam Snead

"Keeping the head still is golf's one universal, unarguable fundamental." - Jack Nicklaus

"Rhythm and timing are the two things which we all must have, yet no one knows how to teach either." - Bobby Jones

"Concentrate on hitting the green. The cup will come to you." - Cary Middlecoff

"Practice puts brains in your muscles." - Sam Snead

Douge2's Humor Corner - A Little Straight Talk

Happy 4th everybody! Faldo loves women's summer clothes
Thanks, but......
My neighbors Christine and Betsy, the two cute, young, lesbians next door, asked me what I would like for my birthday. I was quite surprised, when they gave me a Timex!
It was very nice of them, but I'm pretty sure that they misunderstood me, when I said:
“I wanna watch.”
Clunker Government – Clunker Liberals – Cash for Clunkers Program
A clunker that travels 12,000 miles a year at 15 mpg uses 800 gallons of gas a year.
A vehicle that travels 12,000 miles a year at 25 mpg uses 480 gallons of gas a year.
So, the average Cash for Clunkers transaction will reduce gasoline consumption by 320 gallons per year.
The government claims 700,000 clunkers have been replaced so that's 224 million gallons saved per year.
That equates to a bit over 5 million barrels of oil.
5 million barrels is about 5 hours worth of
US consumption.
More importantly, 5 million barrels of oil at $90 per barrel costs about $450 million dollars.
So, the government paid $3 billion of our tax dollars to save $450 million in oil.

Or to say it another way, our government spent $3 billion of your tax dollars to stop $450 million more in oil sales, which would have created more jobs and more tax money for the government.
Or - to say it even another way, we spent $8.57 for every $1.00 of capitalism stopped.
It gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling of how they will manage our health care, doesn't it?

It is important for men to remember that as women grow older, it becomes harder for them to maintain the same quality of housekeeping as when they were younger. When you notice this, try not to yell at them. Some are oversensitive, and there's nothing worse than  an oversensitive woman.
My name is John. Let me relate how I handled the situation with my wife, Irene.   When I retired a few years ago, it became necessary for Irene to get a full-time job along with her part-time job, both for extra income and for the health benefits that we needed. Shortly after she started working I noticed she was beginning to show her age. I usually get home from the golf club about the same time she gets home from work.
Although she knows how hungry I am, she almost always says she has to rest for half an hour or so before she starts dinner. I don't yell at her. Instead, I tell her to take her time and just wake me when she gets dinner on the table. I generally have lunch in the Men's Grill at the club so eating out is not reasonable. I'm ready for some home-cooked grub when I hit that door.
She used to do the dishes as soon as we finished eating, but now it's not unusual for them to sit on the table for several hours after dinner. I do what I can by diplomatically  reminding her several times each evening that they won't clean themselves. I know she really appreciates this, as it does seem to  motivate her to get them done before she goes to bed.
Another symptom of aging is complaining. I think. For example she will say that it is difficult for her to find time to pay the monthly bills during her lunch hour. But, boys, we take 'em for better or worse, so I just smile and offer encouragement. I tell her to stretch it out over two or even three days. That way she won't have to rush so much. I also remind  her that missing lunch completely now and then wouldn't hurt her any -- if you know what I mean. I like to think tact is one of my strong points.
When doing simple jobs, she seems to think she needs more rest periods. She had to take a break when she was only half-finished mowing the     yard. I try not to make a scene. I'm a fair man. I tell her to fix herself a nice, big, cold glass of freshly squeezed lemonade and just sit for a while. And, as long as she is making one for herself, she may as well make one for me too.
I know that I probably look like a saint in the way I support Irene. I'm not saying that showing this much consideration is easy. Many men will find it difficult. Some will find it impossible! Nobody knows better than I do how frustrating women get as they get older.
However, guys, even if you just use a little more tact and less criticism of your aging wife because of this article, I will consider that writing it was well worthwhile. After all, we are put on this earth to help each other.

John died suddenly on February 7 of a perforated rectum. The police report says he was found with a Calloway extra-long 50-inch Big Bertha Driver II golf club jammed up his rear end, with barely 5 inches of grip showing, and a sledge hammer laying nearby.
His wife, Irene, was arrested and charged with murder. The all-woman jury took only 10 minutes to find her Not Guilty, accepting her defense that John, somehow without looking, accidentally sat down on his golf club.

Lump2 Wins his 4th Tourney of the Year

In his NPP suite, Lump2 is about to get tossed around!
He is back in the race for the 3rd quarter seat, and also in the total points seat race and is moving up the Walk of Fame also. Lump2 just steamrolled thru the line up tonight with the deadly combination of aggressive play and hot flops. He was unstoppable.
We had three blind -outers again. Summer does that sometimes.
It’s already a log jam at the top of the 3rd quarter standings. Only two of twelve rounds played so there is still plenty of time to get in and win the 3rd quarter.
On to the action:
21 min:  A short-stacked (SS) Greggst49 (15th) went with (Ks 6s) but Lump2 had (AK).
29 min: A SS Tomservo2 (14th) has to go with (A9) and Lump2 correctly calls with (KQ) and hits a [K] on the flop.
34 min: 95corolla (13th) Missed it playing a hand.
39 min: Sanster89 (12th) Missed it playing a hand.
43 min: Wingsfancurt (11th) Missed it playing a hand.
45 min: K9isadog (10th) blinded out.
46 min: Absea98 (9th) blinded out.
50 min: A Suetman123 (8th) blinded out.

Theedouble*d    3920
Mikeniks-Faldo    3545
Derf-63    3410
T3chlady   2660
LittleRedElf   1125
72 min: A SS Theedouble*d (6th) has to go with (AQ) and runs into Lump2’s (AK). I sense a pattern tonight. Don’t you?
75 min: Derf-63 (5th) goes with (77) and runs into Lump2’s (JJ). Yep, there is a pattern. You can’t slip anything past Faldo.
79 min: Mikeniks-Faldo (4th) goes with (AK) and loses a coin flip to T3chlady’s (44). Well, trip Fours you can slip past Faldo. Of course I hit a useless King.
89 min: A SS LittleRedElf (3rd) goes with (A2) but Lump2 has (44).
Heads up:        Lump2    15000    -      T3chlady     7500
