From the nucking futz department. The crew without a clue is putting every American outside the country a moving target. For torture.
I've been a poker player for about 18 years and absolutely loved the game until Chris Moneymaker won the World Series of Poker with a 7-2 offsuit. It was a disaster for the game. Now everyone and his brother wants to play poker and go all in on almost every hand, even if they're playing $3-$6.. Odds don't matter, logic doesn't matter, position doesn't matter. A big stack you can bully someone with does. The San Jose card clubs are in a word, deficient. From the food to the lack of services. There are so many rules and regulations, they can't even replace your drink if the floorman knocks it over. You don't even get a deck of cards when you make a Royal Flush. Nothing, nada, not even a picture. If they would let us have jackpots, bring back the masseuse while playing, anything, and if I had money to play I wouldn't mind the proposed tax hike in the card rooms to save city services. But what do the players get in return? Higher table fees that don't go into the pot, which will mean less players per hand. 49 tables sounds nice, but shouldn't there be some money in the pot to fight over? Otherwise, what's the point?
Oh joy, another taser death. Aided and abetted by police brutality. I guess he was supposed to yell fire instead. With the usual cover-up. The Swissvale police also don't seem to understand the First Amendment. Specifically the part that deals with peaceful assembly. I guess they think that since they aren't Congress, the Amendment doesn't apply. To people without badges.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.Oysters get herpes?
