Congress is debating a bill that would prohibit discrimination against gays, lesbians, and bisexuals (with a few exceptions). One member is wanting to add the "T" part to the bill to likewise prohibit discrimination against transgender people. Yet another member (a Republican who is trying to tank the bill) wants to make LGBT into LGBTC: A provision to extend the protection to another group that is not currently protected. They are card counters, who casinos routinely discriminate against. Finally people who are attracted to members of the same gender, those who feel they were born in the wrong body, and those smart enough to keep track of the cards will all be protected.

What do you think? Will we really be seeing a lot more drag and saying the count out-loud, or is that just fear from the right?

Yep, an April Fool's joke! Unlike the other groups mentioned, there is a tangible reason for casinos discriminating against card counters (since APs cost them money).

Card counters are already protected by law in the Scandinavian countries... casinos may not practice "intellectual discrimination" on their customers.

Similarly, card counters are protected by law in New Jersey, thanks to a decision by the NJ Supreme Court. Casinos in NJ may not even back off card counters. All they can do is ask the counters to flat bet and to shuffle the cards.

That's just about the same as backing one off. I you force a card counter to flat bet and/or shuffle anytime you want, card counting is pointless.

It's pointless anyway.

Dan, I respect your opinion, but is it really necessary to insert it everytime counting is mentioned?

I'm not a card counter... but I find it incredibly annoying. And you know it's not pointless, just that you don't agree with it's point and think it's bad for the people doing it as well as the casinos.... blah blah blah. That doesn't make it pointless, you just see the point as negative.

I'm not gonna comment further if you want an argument about the morality of card counting. I'm not a counter, and I probably will never count cards in a casino (even though I probably could.) I just wanted to point out that it's ridiculous that you would even post that.

Eh. It's not really the same, b/c you can still do other AP, although you probably won't be treated well by the casino. Slightly different. If someone, as an example, decided to count cards in AC and got caught, they could still go play Poker.

That's not true if they get trespassed... although it may be true if they simply got backed off of Blackjack.


BTW there's no way this OP is real. (As someone else mentioned, April Fools joke?) Link if it is real? B/C that would be funny!

I agree. Dan is very predictable in his narrow-minded opinions. That's unfortunate, because he is probably fairly intelligent otherwise.
