[Quote]^This. Any serious casino has rotating (machine shuffled) decks. Counting cards is quite ineffective given this.  There are ways to up your odds by 'paying attention' but there's little to no way to game a Casino.

[Quote]"The basis of capitalism is exploitation. Profit is made from not paying workers the full value of their labour. Greed causes conflict. Fucking over people is what it is."  And for all the history buffs, it is quite clear that no system lasts forever. Typically it starts out with the good intentions due to lessons learned from the failure of the previous system. Over long runs though, that shitty human nature (greed/corruption) set in and ruin it. There's typically not much wrong w/ the systems that we design. The problem is the long run outcomes that result given that greedy/selfish human beings end up running it w/o the best intentions in mind. The self-correction mechanisms built in such systems get removed via (Secrets/classified information), bureaucracy, politics (aka propaganda and misinformation), and you end up with something far from the original... It collapses under its own weight and we attempt to start again. This is the history of man kind.

[Quote]Don't waste your time TimDot. This fool took some history courses at his local community college and thinks he has a firm grasp on the reality of the world by being able to parrot off surface level commentary.

[Quote]I stand by my comments as someone who actively trades this market. P.S - Who do you think controls OPEC? (Saudi Arabia/United Arab Emirates/Kuwait/Iraq/Algeria/Qatar) ? Beyond that, time will tell how this plays out. I'm not even going to go into this any further especially with someone who puts as little/thought into their commentary as you.

TIMDOT is speaking sound logic on analyzing this situation. Trillions of dollars spent, millions of lives lost and for what? Nothing was achieved but loss. This is to an outsider. You peel more layers of the onion and you start to understand that there are groups of people who are in the business of doing this as a means of maintaining control and power in ever present circumstances where they are losing it. Take this orchestrated oil price collapse ... It's harming millions of innocent people in countries dependent on it as an export :  [URL] America and our older cousins Europe are still playing games of yesteryear .... The shit that causes wars and chaos ... Whereas our dumbasses are still trying to maintain our grip on the world by destabilizing competitors, others are pursuing more productive paths of bringing people up and building bonds by helping. It's all quite intriguing to watch go down...  It's increasing becoming clear whose going to be the loser of this played out game when the dust settles and it's quite saddening that the world has to grind through this bullshit (once again) with many of the innocent people suffering the majority of the consequences. Playing bitches as pawns against each other and they don't even know it.

[Quote]I agree that civilized people with things to lose for doing such things don't do such things but that doesn't mean some dumb-asses who are uncivilized and without won't do what they constantly told you they would do. If you fail to understand this, it is you who is retarded and possibly this Cartoonist who made a living taunting radicals.  That nig got his wish sadly :  "I would rather die standing than live on my knees," Charb had once been quoted as saying. At the time, al-Qaida had just placed him on its death list in its online magazine [i]Inspire[/i].

[Quote]You wouldn't walk into a jail cell with someone who has a life sentence for murdering people and talk shit about them in front of their face for 48 hours.. The only idiot is someone who doesn't realize the risk they are taking by doing so.  Jackass #1 = person who taunts radicals  Jackass #2 = radicals Two jackasses go at it .. None walk out The world doesn't change by such exchanges ... You just end up as two tombstones. Reasoned people still live on .. Reasoned religious people .. Reasoned journalist.
