They Just Don't Get It

Democrats working hard to remain the minority party:

FOR SHAME: This e-mail came in over the transom today from the House New Democrat Coalition. If you consider yourself a moderate Democrat, it should turn your stomach:

Washington, D.C.--With consumer debt reaching record highs of more than $2 trillion, members of the New Democrat Coalition (NDC) sent a letter today to Speaker Dennis Hastert, urging him to schedule House action on the bankruptcy reform legislation as soon as the Senate completes its consideration of the bill. The letter, signed by twenty NDC members, including the four NDC leaders, reiterates New Democrats' long-standing support for common-sense bankruptcy legislation and states an intention to work across the aisle to pass bankruptcy reform into law. "I'm pleased to see so many New Democrats band together in calling for a mainstream solution to bankruptcy reform. I hope Speaker Hastert will heed our calls and move promptly to bring this legislation to the floor soon," said Rep. Ellen O. Tauscher."This bankruptcy bill strikes an equitable balance between essential protections and responsible reform necessary to curb abuses of the current code by people with the financial means to pay their debt," stated Rep. Kind. "As champions of both personal and fiscal responsibility, New Democrats supported bankruptcy reform in the past, and we stand ready to adopt this common-sense measure when it comes to the floor of the House.""The bankruptcy legislation needs to be brought to the House floor," said U.S. Rep. Adam Smith. "Personal responsibility is an important value that must be part of our public policy. This legislation ensures that Americans must make good on their commitments while also protecting those who truly need help under Chapter 7 bankruptcy laws.""Bankruptcy is an option that ruins credit and homeownership opportunities for too many Americans," said Rep. Artur Davis. "This legislation will deter bankruptcies that are unnecessary and ill considered, while still permitting a fair second chance for low-to-moderate income consumers who face financial hardship. Individual consumers and businesses will benefit from a more streamlined bankruptcy system."

SpeakerU.S. House of Representatives
H-232, The Capitol
Washington, DC 20515

Dear Mr. Speaker:
We write to encourage you to bring bankruptcy reform legislation to the House floor as soon as the Senate completes its consideration of the bill. The New Democrat Coalition has backed common sense bankruptcy reform in the past and helped in passing the bankruptcy reform bill by overwhelming margins in the House of Representatives during the 108th Congress.

Over the last several years, we have worked to advance reasonable and balanced legislation that would require individuals who have the ability to repay their debts to do so, while preserving the important safety net of bankruptcy under Chapter 7 for those who truly need it. We believe that responsible bankruptcy reform embodies the New Democrat principle of personal responsibility, while at the same time adding important new consumer protections such as requiring enhanced credit card disclosure information and encouraging participation in consumer credit counseling.

It is our hope that the House of Representatives will consider this important piece of legislation in an expedited manner. We stand ready to work with you and our colleagues on both sides of the aisle to pass bankruptcy reform into law.
Sincerely,
Rep. Ellen O. Tauscher
Rep. Adam Smith
Rep. Ron Kind
Rep. Artur Davis
Rep. Carolyn McCarthy
Rep. John Larson
Rep. Stephanie Herseth
Rep. Dennis Moore
Rep. Mike McIntyre

Poor suckers. They're reaching across the aisle to Republicans who will applaud their efforts to sink their own party unity, and fight to kick them out of office in '06 for being "tax and spend" liberals.

For my part, this sucks all the more 'cause I voted for one of the ones in bold and gave money to 2 others. They taught me - I've got to start looking to other candidates worthy of my votes or money.

Saw your blog about mortgage interest rate - as it is along the same lines I thought I would share this link with you. We were paying far too much for family things like clothes for us and the kids, games consoles inc the new Wii and soon to be PS3, car insurance/home insurance/pet insurance, broadband, mobile phones, landline calls, home and garden items, camping equipment and utilities/loans etc - you name it, we were spending too much on it.

Then a friend of mine recommended a site called www.bargainplace.co.uk. We were able to get cheaper electricity, gas, mobile phone, broadband and loan deals at bargainplace. Thanks to my friend (and the site) I am saving something like £100 a month and can afford an extra holiday abroard each year. Booked of course on www.bargainplace.co.uk. Thanks bargainplace ;-) !!

Texas Holdem Online
Texas Hold'em - the initial deal
Starting with the player to the left of the dealer, each player is dealt two cards. These are called hole cards (called hole cards) and can be viewed only by its holder, lying face down.
If you play in a casino dealer role fully in each hand dealer, who does not participate actively in the game. Playing socialize at home, his job takes any player, handing out cards for themselves and leading to the end of the hand.
Texas Holdem - before the flop
When each player is dealt two cards, the first betting round takes place, the so-called. betting before the flop. The flop is three community cards, which for the moment will be on the table. But before that happens, all players evaluate their own cards and take part in the auction rate or the opening match when his hand finds to be too bad.
Starting with the player to the left of the big blind, each player has to make a decision: to align the big blind (English: CALL), raise the rate of mandatory (RAISE) or fold immediately (FOLD). If there is a breakdown, naturally each subsequent player must align to the new, higher rate.
Instant Poker Play
Additional option pre-flop is the holder of the big blind - he can wait (CHECK) - but only on condition that no one had raised the facility mandatory.
Once all players have leveled the highest penetration or the big blind, you can go to the next stage of Texas Hold'em hand or lining flop.
Texas Holdem - flop
After the first betting round is led by the hand puts the flop is three community cards. There is a tradition that the first card from the top of the deck is "burned" or put aside without revealing the next three places in the middle of the table, discovering their value.
Each of the three tabs may be part of winning in the final comparison to other systems poker players in the game. For example, if the table will be 6-7-8 and you have "on hand" (his two hole cards) 9 and 10 - that you have a straight (6 to 10). If during that time another player has in his hand a pair of 6-6, it is already three sixes (two from your hand, and the third from the table).

Texas Holdem - goal of the game and the course of the hand at a glance:
Each player is dealt two cards, followed by the auction, then three cards are dealt on the table, the next auction, to table the fourth card visible to everyone, the next auction, the last, the fifth and final community card auction - so in a nutshell looks like a hand in Texas Hold'em.
Each player tries to arrange the best poker hand using the five of the seven available cards (2 + 5 shared their own).

Texas Holdem - "blinds" or the rate required
Before each new hand is dealt two players to the left of the dealer button - marked a white disc with the word "dealer", which circulated on the table clockwise - pay rates "in the dark".
The player sitting on the dealer pays the full mandatory bid in the dark (the big blind - the big blind), and the player to the immediate left of the dealer pays half of this amount (called the small blind or the small blind).
The actual amount of the rates determined by the minimum bets on the table (for example, we're playing at rates 1/2 $ - means that in each hand one player paid before any cards are dealt the dollar and the other two U.S. dollars - thus creating the initial pot).
