It's been almost 2 and a half months since Black Friday, and I would never have guessed how much I miss playing. The closest casino is 30 minutes away, but I'm not old enough to play there for another 10 months. The closest 18+ casino is 3 hours away, and I can only play limit there...
It feels like a huge cooler. I was starting to get really good. I had just bought a HUD and my profits turned green (consistently) for the first time ever. My 12 year's spent playing this game and I had just begun to understand it... and win at it... and it was ripped out from under me.
It's amazing to me the standard citizens hold for when one deserves sympathy. I mean, it wouldn't make me feel better, perhaps would make me feel worse... but it's amazing to me the amount of times I have received absolutely none. In fact, I think I've actually been criticized far more often. The game I love more than any other is taken away from me, and people have the nerve to call me an addict... they have the nerve to tell me that what I was doing was wrong. How dare they.
If your reading this, remember that we should never hold back from protecting any minority's civil liberties. Because it won't be long until it is you wishing your friends would help stand beside you and fight for your rights... if that day comes and they are not there... then you will know how I feel.
