General / Kohlberg's stages of moral development
« on: September 27, 2009, 10:53:26 PM »
I was helping someone with psych homework and came across this

Quote from:  [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kohlberg's_stages_of_moral_development
Wikipedia[/url]]In Stage six (universal ethical principles driven), moral reasoning is based on abstract reasoning using universal ethical principles. Laws are valid only insofar as they are grounded in justice, and a commitment to justice carries with it an obligation to disobey unjust laws. Rights are unnecessary, as social contracts are not essential for deontic moral action. Decisions are not reached hypothetically in a conditional way but rather categorically in an absolute way, as in the philosophy of Immanuel Kant.[15] This involves an individual imagining what they would do in another's shoes, if they believed what that other person imagines to be true.[16] The resulting consensus is the action taken. In this way action is never a means but always an end in itself; the individual acts because it is right, and not because it is instrumental, expected, legal, or previously agreed upon. Although Kohlberg insisted that stage six exists, he found it difficult to identify individuals who consistently operated at that level.[12]

I've said all I have to say about it today.  You guys can have a turn since I've never seen it in any of the liberty places.

General / I caught a guy cheating at poker
« on: July 26, 2009, 06:51:37 AM »
The brother in law of a long time friend of mine who also works for me part time and hosts the poker game I've been going to for 4 years.  He's a good player and has always been one of the biggest leaks in my game.

 Today I caught him cheating 3 separate times.  

It was down 3 of us and we were playing for a decent chunck of change left by several players coming and going with lots of re-buys in a cash game .  The night often ends that way.  I planned on going home with everything.  The cheater was very large stacked.

It was 30 minutes into 3 handed play that I first caught him.  I made sure he knew I was on to him and that I was keeping on eye on his hand movements.  The second time I pointed out a flaw in his slight of hand technique and told his opponent that he (the cheater) folds as the mark had just put in a large bet on the river.  Undaunted he thought for awhile and asked if he had him beat and then folded.  

I expected by then he would just slowly give up all his chips and thank us for coming, but he did it a third time and by then I had tipped off the third player who easily spotted his movements and we just quit playing hands when he dealt.  It was obvious to him at this point we knew what he was doing and his head was hanging pretty low.

We both played at him aggressively and even with each other and he played good poker right back but we shortened his stack steadily.  This went on for about 7- 10 rotations where he did no more cheating.  The third player is a little bitch and started saying things like: "I've got what I came with, I'm happy." in hopes of avoiding confrontation.  When I was tired of waiting I pushed all in on a draw that I normally wouldn't have and that player 3 should have folded anyway but he called and won.  The cheater exclaimed: "Why'd you give him all that money?"  I said it didn't matter.  I asked the cheater what he thought we should do?  Player 3 started counting his chips and trying to cash out while I explaing to the cheater there was no way he was keeping any of that money (he still thought he was, but he caved quickly).  I then told player 3 to get the moneybox and get as much as he was in for and to give me the rest, that I had earned it for spotting the cheat.  The cheater mumbled things about how he doesn't usually do that and they're really broke these days (It's like pulling teeth to get him to come to work).  Player 3 did what he was told.  I told the cheater I'd see him around and left.  It was raining.  I was on a motorcycle.  My feet are cold.

General / Warped Tour 07
« on: July 13, 2007, 12:03:56 PM »
The FSP booth has more than enough of volunteers in KC and St. Louis this year but I am trying to get a second booth staffed by liberty lovers that will be focused on gathering signatures for an 18 to drink initiative as well as voter registration and related activities. 

If you're in the KC or St. Louis area I highly recommend you volunteer.  It's a lot of fun.  How can you go wrong with a free concert with a lot of bands where you can bring your own food and drink?.  At least 2 members of the FTL BBS will be at both shows. 

If you're not interested in volunteering but are at the show.  Come see us.  We have stickers.

General / FSP Booth at Van's Warped Tour

I heard a listener from Kansas City on the show the other day.  It occured to me that I might find a volunteer here to man an FSP table with me on 6/19 at Verizon Amphitheatre.  I need at least one more person before they'll let us reserve a spot.
