I don't need; I don't like; I don't want6 May 2010
Is today the age of the surrogate? You can't do it or you don't want to do it, therefore you get someone else to do it for you?
Parents send their beloved offspring to often sleazy day care centers so these parents can work. Those kids are brought up by often uninterested low-paid workers who are bringing up a whole bunch of other kids at the day care center, many of which kids could be the human equivalent of poison ivy.
Women who can't get pregnant have other women get pregnant for them and also carry the baby for them and when that baby is born, several months later, off the kid goes to day care. Are we becoming a society of "do this for me," "do that for me," because "I can't or won't do it myself"?
Isn't welfare often the equivalent of some able-bodied person really saying, "Work for me"?
Here's an e-mail that got me thinking about this:
So I sent Mr. Toidi this response, which is in theme the response I always send or say.
There are many wealthy casino gamblers out there who have lost small and large fortunes to the casinos because they play games that they can't beat and, more than likely, play these games in the worst possible manner, often making stupid bets such as the crazy crapper one-roll proposition bets and the hardways. And they see advantage players and look to surrogate them in said gambler's efforts to get some of his or her money back.
The casinos love these stupid losing players. Stupid players fuel the engines of the casinos. Those stupid players won't win in the long run even if they get the temporary help of a true advantage player. If they don't learn to be advantage players themselves, they will ultimately go back to being losers.
Now these losing players will often contact me and try to get me to play for them. The answer is always a resounding no. My whole casino gambling ethic is to help make other players good players — not to become surrogates for them. In matters of love I certainly wouldn't want a surrogate with my beloved. That isn't much fun to my way of thinking.
So too with casino gambling, craps in particular. If we shot for you, what happens when our relationship is over? You go back to being a ploppy, a rich ploppy perhaps, but nevertheless a ploppy.
If you want to have the best chance to beat the casinos then you have to learn the methods and techniques yourself.
"To thine own self be true!" was never a truer statement than when said to a casino gambler looking for a surrogate.
