    I really did feel like I was playing against Jesus at one point. One dude just seemingly hit every single flop the entire night. Four or five straights, a few flushes, more trips than I can remember. Just amazing. I never once tripped up all night. Caught one low two pair that was beat. No straights. No flushes. I played for hours and literally only saw single pairs. Now I can operate around that if Im getting pre-flop hands to work with, but holy ****...I tend to be a very aggressive pre-flop player and I felt like I barely played a hand.

    It’s not exactly the gold-standard if you read the section, but it would be a commodity backed currency.

Go ask some of the legally operating pot-shops out in California who’ve been shut down & owners who’ve been prosecuted. Is there no issue with that?

    How well do you believe the current regulations are working, though?

    I've had nights like that. It sucks, luck is luck and it runs in streaks.

    Current regulations would work better if they didn't keep getting cut. Regulations are what made BP clean up that massive spill in the gulf and pay out millions in fines and lawsuits. Regulations require food companies to keep their products clean and healthy. Minimal regulations would mean these companies would only worry about their profit margin. That's the problem with the Libertarian model of economics. Regulations prevent a company like Microsoft from owning the entire computer market. In the libertarian model, you can be damn sure that Microsoft would have already squeezed everyone else out of business and have that monopoly.

    And with Rand, it wasn't that one hyperbolic statement. It's a recurring thing. I didn't know this until recently, but did you know he has been making regular appearances on Fox News? The apple fell far from the tree when it comes to Rand Paul...

    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    Ron Paul doesn't run for president to win. He runs to promote issues. That gives him the latitude to say whatever he wants but also ensures he never sniffs the nomination. He knows that and accepts it. To judge all candidates by his standard of candor is comparing apples to oranges. Sure it's technically the same race, but a world class distance runner from Kenya and a 43 year old dock worker who are both in the Boston Marathon are also running in the same race. Technically. Hardly the same thing, though.

    Our political system rewards few points for honesty. Therefore it engenders little honesty. As long as there are people ambitious enough to crave power there will be people willing to find out what behavior the system does reward... and do that.
    You can make the argument that our currency is now backed by oil but it still is all based on faith in the US economy.

    Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison exploded during a live interview with Sean Hannity on Tuesday, calling the Fox News host the "worst excuse for a journalist I've ever seen" and a "shill for the Republican Party."
    The Minnesota congressman was on the program to discuss President Barack Obama's remarks on the sequester when he launched into a tirade aimed at Hannity, who had said "The president is more concerned with fearmongering than finding a solution to the problem he created."

    "Quite frankly, you are the worst excuse for a journalist I have ever seen," Ellison told Hannity, who said he couldn't hear him. "You heard me."

    Ellison then accused Hannity of "yellow journalism."

    "Every journalistic ethic I've ever heard of was just violated by you," Ellison said. "For you to say the president is to blame here is ridiculous."

    When Ellison called Hannity a "shill" for the GOP, the Fox News host tried to correct him. "I'm a registered conservative," Hannity said. "Keep ranting."

    Ellison did, and Hannity eventually ended the interview.

    "Congressman, you are a total waste of time," Hannity said. "We're moving on, because our audience deserves better."

    Hannity got Ellison to play his game. Hannity gets ratings acting that way. What benefit did Ellison get out playing Hannity's game?

    Hannity acted like Hannity. Was Ellison acting like Ellison? I'm not familiar with him so I don't know if he always comes across as a raving lunatic.

    Ron Paul was on Leno talking about the environment. He said there’s some that Libertarians aren’t as interested in it as they should be:



    Besides, you really think he’d just be like, “yea we’re just gonna let that sit there”. Those are not the type of regulations he’s talking about.

    He’s against monopolies. That’s one of the reasons he wants to end the federal monopoly on the post office to deliver mail. He says there should be free-market competition.

    “In an interview on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Paul said he favors ending the United States Post Office legal monopoly on first class mail delivery by legalizing private competition”.

    Like what? What other statements? I hardly think appearing on FoxNews makes you a FoxNews lunatic. Here’s Obama on FoxNews.
