The story is that the guy dumped beer on Patches (the dealer) head and was using racial slurs. Sadly even with the provoking Patches canít act the way he did. Heíll never get a gambling licence again imo.

I'm a professional poker player & I couldn't agree more with what you just said. These are crazy times, I saw a guy chase the floor man with death threats around Thunder Valley just a few months ago :( We both know this isn't good for the game from our perspective. We would prefer that the fish be content with their losses, to begin with but we also don't like the dealer losing us a fish cause that guy probably isn't going to be feeling in the mood to play some poker for a minute.

I can't change your opinion but please don't believe what you just said. War, violence & suffering is not inevitable with our species. We can learn to overcome our wickedness. But that speech probably isn't going to do it for you so I'll appeal to your logic & reasoning side.

The truth is violence does nothing to make you a winner in the vast majority of situations. There hasn't been a war after the middle ages that had a winner in it. Back in the day, civilizations would war for materials. The land and its resources whereof value, plus also the people since they could become your slaves. Now whoever wins 🏆 that would actually be considered the visitor but in today's wars, nobody gains ANYTHING! People who say the economy gets stimulated are full of it! Our nation pays the bill with your GDP debt. Today's wars are like having an architecture contest with the opposing nation, where we build the most expensive, efficient, massive buildings and once they are awarded a ranking they are immediately destroyed wasting all the money, time & effort just to kill people. This is the most stupidest idea ever & if all global leaders were smart enough to see this war could go extinct!

2nd argument, violence towards someone who isn't a threat can only make you a winner if the disagreement was literally over who was the better fighter. Think about it, if we have a disagreement (let's say about religion since that's the worst one) & you beat my ass because you believe in a different God than I, but did you really win something? If this example were true then I'm not changing my opinion of God because of your beating. No matter how much of a beating I take nobody could ever convince me that math isn't real. The entire reason (in this example) for you being upset is because of my beliefs but you kicking my ass hasn't changed my beliefs, so how possibly could you say that violence has solved or improved the situation in the slightest?

3rd, then you get to the worst type of violence which is genocide. Hitler never once tried to change the jews but rather deemed them tainted & unsavable. So instead he thought genocide was the answer. Many people thought out history have resorted to violence to get what they want & sadly sometimes it works (like Beethoven's father). A classic example of it working is torture, but just look how much violence you have to inflict just to get someone to do or believe what you want.

Hope this is a good lesson for you. We as humans need to stop acting on our fight or flight responses & be taught this knowledge in our public high schools when kids are old enough to understand this but young enough to learn & adapt from it.

With all the many C-virus "rules" that everyone is breaking from one end of this country to the other, folks are going to have a LOT of "fun" through the holidays and beyond. Cheers!
