Recent Casino Trip...

WELCOME TO MY BLOG EVERYONE! I mainly hope to just discuss random happenings in my life and my views of events in the media.

Today, is a random happening.

The other night I was at Riverwind Casino in Norman, Oklahoma. I was playing $5-$300 blackjack with a $0.50 ante. I bet the minimum, $5 and stayed at 18. The dealer hit once to 16 then announced "19" and cleared the cards and the chips. I pointed out that the dealer only had 16, they pulled the cameras and reviewed.... sure enough. I was right, the dealer hits again and busts. NEARLY STOLE MONEY FROM ME!

Please post in the comments what YOU think of Indian casinos... do they cheat or was it a mistake?

I've been thinking lately...

It is hard to admit, but after six decades of strategic cooperation, Turkey and the United States are becoming strategic competitors -- especially in the Middle East. This is the logical result of profound shifts in Turkish foreign and domestic politics and changes in the international system.
Monday's events might prove a wake-up call for the U.S. foreign-policy establishment. Among the small group of Turkey watchers inside the Beltway, nostalgia rules the day. U.S. officialdom yearns to return to a brief moment in history when Washington and Ankara's security interests were aligned, due to the shared threat posed by the Soviet Union. Returning to the halcyon days of the U.S.-Turkish relationship, however, is increasingly untenable.interdiction of the Istanbul-organized flotilla of ships that tried Monday to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza. After Israel's attempts to halt the vessels resulted in the deaths of at least nine activists, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu referred to Israel's actions as "murder conducted by a state." The Turkish government also spearheaded efforts at the U.N. Security Council to issue a harsh rebuke of Israel.
