Another New Project

Okay, so I'm taking on another new project!!!

A lot of my readers probably know that Chris "Jesus Ferguson" started with a zero balance online and amazingly turned his account into $10,000. He played in freerolls, made a lot of money and increased his poker playing skills 100%. How did he do it exactly? I have no clue, but four of us poker chics are going to follow in his footsteps! We are starting with a zero balance and hoping to win some money and increase our skills in the process.

Since I already have accounts at Full Tilt and Pokerstars, I'll be downloading Bodog and Ultimate Bet and starting fresh!!

Okay, so let's discuss this Ellen Degeneres situation. Does she really deserve all this negative controversy??? I mean, on the one hand the writers feel hurt - I get that. But, on the other hand, she has to keep her job, so what's a lesbian to do? I dunno, but honestly, I think they need to just let it go. The latest thing I heard is that she cancelled her trip to New York because the Writers Guild warned her of their disatification. I hope the whole strike thing ends soon.\

So, who's side are you on??

Sounds like a very cool project! I wish you luck and hope you keep us updated.

I don't know a lot about this writers strike, but my experience with strikes is that generally people who already make an assload of money are the ones who go on strike. You never see the Fry Guy at McDonald's on strike. The Mop Guy on a porno film set is always there ready to work...

Just sayin'... LOL

Have a great week!

This is probably going to be an unpopular position, but I am pretty much against striking in general. Unions had important place in our history, but it seems that the Unions usually end up protecting crappy workers and fighting over petty stuff. At my prior firm, I did a lot of labor litigation and union officials often had the attitude that they were "entitled" to things.

That being said - I think that the writers do deserve compensation for dvds and downloads. I just think there has be a better way to fix the problem than striking.

The writers most definitely deserve to get paid for their work. The studios want to pay them NOTHING for downloads that the studios will be charging for.

And most of the writers aren't all that rich. Sure some of the really top writers make excellent living, but most are pretty middle class people. They're not nearly as rich as they are being made out to be.

As for Ellen, she's kind of stuck between the two. She has a contract that she must honor, so she has to go in to work. So, given her popularity she gets clobbered from all sides.



Best of luck with the poker project. Hope you make lots and lots of moolah!

Good luck with the Ferguson project! I've tried it and it's HARD. He has my utmost respect.

Poor Ellen can't catch a break here lately. First, The Dog controversy, now this. She's had a tough month.

Lose her job, sued for everything she owns and sent to Iowa to live.

Good luck on your project. It's tough.

whichever side the unions are on, I'm on the other.

I'm definitely on the side of the writers, but I can understand Ellen's dilemma.

And, I see the propaganda machine has succeeded in convincing people that unions are a bad thing. Too bad, because unions are the only things that ensured workers a living wage and some benefits on their jobs. Now, look what they have. No living wage, jobs sent out of the country, no insurance, retirements disappearing, etc., etc., don't get me started!

ahem... I didn't need a propoganda machine to convince me that unions are ridiculous. I just needed a bit of time in the working world for that. I'm all about right to work and pure capitalism and hell, even a bit of anarchy.
