Poker in New Harmony Indiana

Poker involves math, psychology, patience, deviousness and well timed aggression. Poker is also an an equal opportunity game. At the poker table, no one cares, who your Daddy was, or who you rub shoulders with at happy hour. Poker tests character. If you are ruled by greed, animosity, prejudices, arrogance or impatience,  you will soon get your clock cleaned at poker. I love poker for all of those reasons.

When I was a kid, ………………

Will Tomes back America or the Militia?

An audio recording obtained my both NBC and the New York Times reveals Trump telling national Evangelical leaders in a secret meeting, that there will be violence, if Democrats win in the November 2018 midterm elections.

When I connect the dots to local Trump follower, state Senator Jim Tomes, this gives me cold chills.

Jim Tomes, no mental giant by any standards, openly worships …………….

Dollar Store in New Harmony, Indiana?


A little birdie told me, that New Harmony Indiana is about to get a Dollar Store.  Is that a good thing, a bad thing or just a thing. Depends on your point of view. I personally don’t feel I would benefit from having a Dollar Store as a neighbor.  A Dollar Store doesn’t fit the ambience of New Harmony. Plus, my experience with Dollar Stores is that, like fast food franchises, people buy stuff, then throw away the wrappers or containers in the parking lot causing an eyesore.

In my view, …………………………………………..

I always use the term “N WORD” instead of the racial epitaph it represents. Here’s WHY. I’m normally bluntly outspoken, but in this case, I use the euphemism “N WORD,.” because Black Americans generally object to non Blacks using the actual “N WORD” for any reason or in any context. It is my opinion that centuries of racial oppression and injustice — which continues today— suffered by Black Americans, has bought those Black Americans the right to be the sole decision makers on the issue of the use of the “N Word.”

American Black people have my greatest respect, my head would explode, if I had to face for a few hours, that which they are subjected to daily by ignorant, racist whites.

There’s dignity in work

There’s dignity in work. If the worker gets a living wage and a square deal. But, there is no dignity in fat cat corporations getting richer by exploiting powerless workers.

In the state of Alabama the state minimum wage is $7.25 per hour, which is the lowest allowed by federal law. The city of Birmingham, Alabama  wants to raise the minimum wage within the city to $10.10 per hour. To stop this increase in wages by the city of Birmingham, the Alabama state  legislature has created ……….


Thirty states now have legal medical marijuana. Here’s a list of the legal marijuana states.

I know people in some of those legal marijuana states. Several of whom I served with during my eight years of US Army service, which incidentally included 15 months in a combat unit in the Vietnam war.

I have chronic pain, from conditions directly connected to my military service. The conditions I have are common among ex Army vets and some are specific to Vietnam war vets. 

These conditions are acknowledged to be connected to military service by the US Department of Veterans Affairs. Some of the ex soldiers I know, who live in legal marijuana states, have the same conditions and the same chronic pain I have. Because, they live in one of the 30 legal marijuana states, they are prescribed marijuana and marijuana extracts for pain.

Everyone I know, who is prescribed marijuana for pain, reports that……..

A poker tip

Ron Nesler New Harmony Indiana

I love poker, because the game of Poker doesn’t care, who your Daddy was. Poker is a great bastion of  meritocracy.

I am a pretty good poker player. Ask the little group of New Harmony Indiana Trump supporters, who tried valiantly but unsuccessfully for six years to pluck me like a chicken at the poker table. I sent those self anointed geniuses home kicking their lunch buckets and mumbling to themselves.

I know a lot about poker, and I am not selfish about giving out poker tips to anyone. Here is a free tip, right now:

If you find yourself at a poker table bemoaning the unfair nature of the universe, it is time to seek your entertainment in a different venue for awhile. Because you, sir or madame, are steaming like an 1830’s locomotive, and will get your butt kicked by cooler heads. Trust me on this. Been there, done that and paid the tariff.
