A man named Chad Dixon, from Indiana, has just been sentenced to eight months in a federal penitentiary.

This punishment was handed down yesterday in a federal court in Alexandria, VA. Let’s hope free speech advocates will recognize the serious implications of this outrageous verdict and will fight to appeal stop charges of this nature from ever being filed in the first place in future cases.
Here’s the problem.
Lie detector tests aren’t just inconclusive, they’re practically useless. A significant segment of the scientific community considers polygraphs to be pseudoscience (CLICK HERE). In fact, “polygraphy has little evidence to support its use. Despite claims of 90 percent validity by polygraph advocates, the National Research Council has found no evidence of effectiveness.” (CLICK HERE) Polygraph test results are inadmissible as evidence in most courts of law. Why? Because lie detectors are junk science. Read more: CLICK HERE

BEST BETS OF THE WEEK: 0–0–0
Opening weekend can be looked upon in at least two ways.
Some handicappers prefer taking a “wait and see” approach. They view Week 1 with extreme caution. Others not only fire away, but look at the first game(s) of the regular season as unique opportunities to exploit confusion. While overly-cautious bettors claim there’s not enough information to make informed judgements about teams and players, that’s precisely why others insist that early season games are beatable. After all, linesmakers are operating with the exact same uncertainties and must rely on pure speculation and market perception.
I’ve always been an aggressive early season bettor. Based on my review of the numbers, I see no reason to change that philosophy this year. I made 11 plays, so far. Note that my halftime wagers will not be posted since the time frame is too short. So, my overall W-L overall record will only reflect what I post in advance. Be sure and check the site again Sunday AM, as I may add some late 1Q and 1H bets based on the late numbers (not everything has been released yet).
Here are my preferred picks for NFL Week 1:
Would someone please explain to me what the fuck is going on?
Am I stuck inside a giant time machine?
Today, it was 106 degrees outside. One-ohhh-six. I haven’t lost a single dollar on the NFL regular season, yet. A few days ago, we went to a summer barbecue.
Of course, all this can mean only one thing.
That’s right — it’s Christmas season.
“Poker Night in America” is now rolling along nicely following an exciting debut production at the Turning Stone Resort Casino, in Upstate New York.
Marco Valerio, from QuadJacks.com, came along for the ride and managed to film a lot of the behind the scenes action. As you can see from this 12-minute clip (above), getting there was at least half the fun. This is labeled as part one, so we look forward to seeing more.
After viewing the footage, including lots of banter between the players and guests, I’m still tying to remember what exactly hit the cutting room floor. Fact is, this pretty much captures what happened during the first day — before the cash games, poker tournament, and golf match was filmed later.
MEET LEE DAVY
Lee Davy is a complex man who defies simple description.
He’s probably best known (to most) as a poker journalist and podcast personality, often asking the most penetrating and personal questions of his many subjects, not only about the game, but about life. Indeed, being interviewed one-on-one by Davy makes the guest feel like patient reclined inside a psychiatrist’s office. All Davy lacks is the customary leather sofa and the pipe typically associated with Sherlock Holmes. Yet, he never judges, only questions.
Davy was born in Manchester, England in 1975. When he was 16, he left school and started working for the British Railway system. He spent the next 19-years out and about on the railroads. But Davy’s real journey wasn’t working on trains. It was struggling within himself.
