Prior to that post on Jan 25th, I hadn't posted on bj21 for quite some time. I had been a paying subscriber for around 10 years, then a couple years ago when there was a problem with my credit card they cut off my access to green chip without even contacting me to resolve the issue. At that time I wasn't very active on the site anyway because I was busy with other things in my life, so I just let it go. Sometimes I do miss bj21 and the friends I've made here.
When I stumbled across that video about the cops and DA in Texas, the first thing I thought about was all the gamblers who carry a bankroll, so I came back to bj21 to post the warning.
I'm sorry to take so long to reply, but I didn't see your reply until today. I don't do too much gambling these days and I'm very busy with other money making activities and with life in general, but today I thought about this post so I thought I'd come back and see if there was any further discussion.
Thanks for the link about the east coast story. Arnold didn't mention where on the the east coast that had taken place. Years ago, I had a couple of encounters with traffic cops, once in Maryland and once in New Jersey. Luckily for me they didn't rob me. Although the one in New Jersey had me to the point where I was out of the car and he was patting me down for weapons when another car went speeding by and the cop abandoned me to chase after the other car, so who knows what may have happened if I hadn't been saved by the reckless driver. The old "pat you down for weapons" routine is just an excuse to search you even though you haven't given permission and there's no probable cause for the search.
It's hard to get those lunches comped these days. The games that I used to play to earn my comps are all gone now. At this point I don't do nearly as much gambling as I did in the past, and now I'm concentrating on other ways to make money. I know about that double deck game, or I should say I know where it is; but to tell you the truth I haven't even gone to take a look because it's probably a counter trap. The thought did cross my mind that they might be so busy watching the DD game that they neglect to watch the other games, but due to the general atmosphere of that particular casino I still believe they'll sweat all of the games.
eyesRs, I haven't been on here for a long time so I don't recognize your handle. Please post a few clues to let me know that you are the person who I think you are. I'll try to remember to check back here in a few days.
