ANSWERING A’JAD: DISINVEST, N.Y.!
Dick Morris Reports
By DICK MORRIS & EILEEN MCGANN
Published in the New York Post on September 27, 2007.

*** begin quote ***

The blow to Iran’s rulers should be huge. The California system alone has assets totaling $350 billion – much of it invested in companies that do business with Iran such as Sieman’s, Total, Respol and Shell.

*** and ***

In one of the letters, Thompson warned the Spanish oil giant Respol that its investments in Iran pose “significant risks to the company, and by extension, to our investments and that of other share-owners of the company.”

*** and ***

Eighty-five percent of Iranian government revenues come from the energy industry – a total of $55 billion in 2006. Already, falling oil production (down by a third since the 1979 revolution) and rising domestic demand will cut government energy revenues by an estimated 20 percent over the coming year.

*** and ***

What could be more right than slowing Iran down in its drive to acquire nuclear weapons?

*** end quote ***

What better way to “kneecap” old “I’m a nut job” (as coined by Jay Leno) then with out an invasion, firing a shot, or any fuss or muss.

Luv it!

RANT: Gooferment at work; don’t get in the way!

Crew Paints Over Roadkill Raccoon In Lemont
Area Residents Say This Isn’t The First Time Crews Have Treated Animals Carelessly

(CBS) LEMONT, Ill. A photograph sent to CBS 2 shows a raccoon dead in the middle of a Lemont street, and yellow stripes painted right over its body by road crews.

*** end quote ***

Your gooferment at work.

Now you know how I feel every April 15th and every (Dej)Election Day!

In their defense, it wasn’t a case of “treating an animal carelessly”. It is probably that the work rules don’t allow the Certified Line Painter to get of the truck and shovel it off. That’s probably the job of the Certified Wildlife Removal Specialist. And, we have a labor dispute when the wrong union gets certain work. Probably, the fellow could have done it and the state would have just paid the “right” union worker extra. Now the Certified Job Designer will have to change the Certified Line Painting Procedure and put the job back out for bids.

Argh! Makes me “Certifiable”. Argh!!

TECHNOLOGY: Deceptive Slot Machine in Lost Wages

Friday, September 28, 2007

I found a series of deceptive slot machines in Las Vegas. (Unusual, because the Nevada Gaming Commission is unusually strict with stuff like that.) They were high top modern ones … penny slots … with 210 coins max bet. The deceptive part was that they reset after an idle period to indicate 1 coin – 1 line – 1 (something). Regardless of what the last play was. No accident I watched it happen. (Where’s a video cam or camera when you need one!)

It’s deceptive because there are slot players, like myself, who look for slots where the last player “tapped out”. Some people will play a slot down to their last credit. A 1/1/1 is a sign that some one just played out their allotment for that machine without winning. (Akin to the “jump in one’s grave” strategy where they watch you lose and then as soon as you leave, they play and hit “your jackpot”. Argh!) Some players, like myself, don’t like to play slots where someone has one big as indicated by a big cash out. (Not completely reliable.) Some players, like myself, like to play machines where there’s a big last bet and no big cash out. (Indicating a big player tapped out on the machine without hitting.)

So, I’ll be looking into what it takes to make a complaint to the NV state gooferment.

HERE’S THE RESPONSE TO MY INQUIRY

From: Howie, Gordon [mailto:GHowie@gcb.nv.gov]
Sent: Monday, September 24, 2007 7:42 PM
To: reinkefj
Subject: Slot Machine Question

Mr. Reinke,  Unfortunately there is no requirement that I am aware of that a slot machine keep the information displayed relevant to what the prior player was wagering or cashed out.  In reality and statistically the information you think you gain some insight from has nothing to do with the outcome of the next game played. There are a lot of changes in the way modern gaming devices present the games and some do not keep any prior information available for the review of another patron who is trying to find just the right machine.  We are also receiving a lot of questions about why the tokens and coin hoppers are being replaced with ticket in / ticket out.  It is all part of the technology which is changing very rapidly in the industry. 

If I can be of any additional assistance please feel free to contact me.
