Corruption in Politics

This started as a response to a post on facebook, but grew too long. I'm moving the post here where it will probably not get read lol.

Some French guy 150 years ago said, "If at 25 you are not a liberal you have no heart, and if at 35 you are not conservative you have no brain."

The issue today is that truth isn't just fact. Leftists (as opposed to normal liberals) that have aggressively taken over the Liberal side of the conversation see "My truth" instead of "the truth", because it is based on emotional reaction instead of facts.

Epstein's death is a clear case of corruption, powerful elites silencing the man who can air their dirty secrets, from Bill Clinton to Prince Andrew, and over 1000 others in his little black book, and Epstein's money and power are a clear case of corruption. The fact that his lolita island and lolita express airplane even exist is a testament to corruption. That powerful leaders in multiple countries have taken regular rides on his plane and to his island is further proof of corruption and the downfall of our society.

Political elites on both sides have lost the country. This is not just a right or left issue. Democrat leaders have spent the last three years trying to undo an elected president because they didn't win. 5 of the last 6 Republican presidents have been under threat of impeachment because of Democrats not liking the results of the election.

This is not to say that Republicans are free from corruption. The same issue that infects Democrats infect Republicans. Power corrupts. When Bill Clinton was under impeachment threat, Republicans said some very hard things as well to justify an impeachment over adultery.

Main conservatives see Liberals as uninformed. Leftists (again, as opposed to Liberals) see the Right as evil, and use authoritarian fascist tactics to beat all who oppose them into submission.

Power corrupts. Right now conservatives are being called out for their hypocrisy as they forego true conservative values and accept progressive policy, foreign influence, and larger government, just as much as Leftists are being called out for embracing socialism, over-taxation, and political violence.

The parties are trying to destroy each other, and those of us in the middle are exactly that, caught in the middle.

Movements like Blexit and Turning Point USA go to colleges and civic centers to speak to centrists and show them the crazy of the left, encouraging them to recognize the truth.

Yet TPUSA founder Charlie Kirk is under attack by America First true conservatives because of his liberal policies regarding immigration and shutting down free speech and debate.

On the left? Antifa, I think? and the Social Justice movement that do their best to infect everything around them and twist it for the sake of "Diversity" which really means no straight white people. They pretend to stand up for the rights of the minorities, but attack minorities who want to be free thinkers instead of joining the herd. Blexit founders Candice Owens and Brandon Tatum are perfect examples. Because they don't want to vote Democrat, they are smeared as white supremacists, and they're black. Youtuber Contrapoints (Natalie something), a conservative voice in the #WalkAway campaign, is also smeared for being homophobic and transphobic, but she's a transwoman. No logic, only "Follow me or be destroyed."

Hillary Clinton said it best: "You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for."

And that is going to be the way of it. Peaceful separation or war.

Crypto Gambling

Ted was a guy I knew in the Marines that would go to Vegas every payday weekend (we were in 29 Palms, just a short couple hour drive away) and more often than not come home with thousands of dollars. He had the awesome crotch rocket motorcycle, a great truck, and his house was furnished with a lot better stuff than the old hand-me-downs I had. I asked him one day how he did it and he told me his system. I'm going to share it with you now.

Ted would take 200$ from his paycheck and play roulette. He would wait for the spinner to hit the same color four times, and put 100$ on the opposite color. Playing the colors is 2:1 odds, and he would double it. If he lost, he would put the other 100$ on the next one and double that, and then start over. Once he had an extra 200$ in his pocket, he would double the just-won 200$ until he was comfortable with a couple thousand, and come home. That wasn't bad at all, when we made about 1000$/month as PFCs.

Well, I have been waiting 25 years to try that system out. I haven't spent a lot of time in places that were comfortably close to casinos, so never until this summer when I went with some friends to Jackpot for Edgefest and got to play.

Well, I was not as comfortable throwing 100$ down on a single bet, but I would start around 25$, and after an evening of playing on the roulette table, I came home up 300$.

Since then I've figured out a more consistent way to play roulette. This system requires a higher start, because you need to be able to cover your loses. But I can show consistent upward growth with this system that does not require waiting for four blacks or reds. Just do every other. Do it low. Play it slow.

You walk to the table, ball last hit Red. Put 10 on Black, 1 each on Green. if you win, put 10 on Red, one each on Green. if you lose, put 20 on Black, 2 each on Green, etc.

Like I said, it takes a higher start, because in a couple losses 100 or 200$ will be gone. But with sufficient to cover your bets, like 1000$.

Remember: Always 10% on the greens.

No, your winnings won't go up as fast, but the number of times we got screwed by green 0 or 00 was maddening. Towards the end we figured out that if you put $10 on black and $1 on each green, your profit on black is 8$, but your profit on green is $24 (35 win -1 for the other green and -10 for the black).

Since dabbling in crypto I wanted to find a way to use some of it for some light gambling. First I tried the little games on the faucets, cointiply and FreeBitCoin, but while similar, they weren't what I was looking for. I tried to find an online casino, and stumbled on to BitStarz, but they gamble with BitCoin micro-satoshi, which is like a dollar a play. I didn't want to play at 1$ per play, because I'm not that rich (yet). I much prefer playing all day and not quite spending a penny.

Then I found LuckyFish. LuckyFish allows gambling of about 20 different crypto coins, and on many of the games a minimum bet of 1 satoshi (not the poker games). And if you have been collecting from some of the faucets I've mentioned in other posts, you have plenty of starting seed money. Not only that, but often times there are some more wealthy players or the game's bot, that will "Make it rain:"

I left it open on my desktop while I worked, playing during lunch, and came back to find generous players (mostly this person called BlueBalls) had padded my account with satoshi, or in some cases, multiple coins (Doge and HOT).

Note, also, that you can use BAT, which you can get by surfing and veiwing ads with the Brave browser, which doesn't track your surfing or collect your private information to sell to advertisers. (Built on Chromium, but better than Chrome)

The games use a system called provably fair, so they are not bent that you will never win.

Here's 20 rolls with Doge coin on roulette, showing a steady uptick in profit to total 75,000sat. Yes, there were losses, but as I said, doubling and repeating your bet will restore it... eventually. 

Watch out for zingers like this: 

8 reds... ugh.

The table is European style, so only one Green 0, and has a good track of your bets, as seen above. There can be up to 6 players per table, and there are a lot of tables (it shows four, but scroll and it'll keep going). I've never had to wait. 

There are other games at LuckyFish, but my experience is that roulette is my baby.

So if you enjoy a trip to the casino but don't want to throw your money to the mob, come play at LuckyFish. I haven't made a deposit yet and i have plenty of sat to throw around. All in fun.

Happy gaming!
