Raise or Fold:  A Year of Risky Business

Writing and playing poker as if they were activities worth doing well.

Not a Blog About But Politics, But...

...tomorrow is election day.

I am not going to tell you for whom I'm going to vote, or for whom you ought to vote. We're a poker blog here.


This is an election that positively, absolutely matters. So take a page from the poker book, and go practice making the best decision you know how on something that is actually very important.

And if, on Wednesday morning, you feel you have suffered a bad beat, take ANOTHER page from the poker book and play on anyway. There is no game if we do not participate and play by the rules. The same is true of our civil society.

Be a good citizen tomorrow and vote. Be a good citizen the day after by continuing to engage in dialog with people with whom you disagree and by working peacefully and positively toward the goals you believe in.

My first and last political rant.

I could forgive originally voting Bush in - who'd of known right? I struggle to forgive the repeat offence, but i understand the FUD associated with leading his flock into the swamp, then offering up the best qualifications to lead them out. But if it occurs that the US continues with the same regime and turns its back on an alternative based on skin colour...I do agree that the country is 'standing at the edge of an abyss'. :/

We do indeed live in exciting times.

Which ever way the American election goes it will have an effect on the rest of the world. Not many elections around the world could/will have such an impact.

As for me, I can't wait to hear the outcome.

And remember... Whoever wins... He *IS* your President, and mine, and everyone else's in this great nation.
