Second Life A Virtual World ?


As a Disabled American Veteran, who suffers from sixty percent disability due to spinal injuries, that occurred while in service I get bored, And the easiest thing for many in my shape or shapes worse than that, is the internet with its access to chat programs and games and so much more. I speak of Second Life the Virtual World for a reason, it is made by Linden Labs. on the West Coast of America and maintained and operated on servers they hold control of at all times. While it is entertaining to create to create your own world and your own character and looks and more in, it is also a money drainer for many people with its gambling sims.

The Gambling Sims surround a game they call Greedy, which also holds individual games called solos too, which are created by members who pay special fees to operate them on certain sims. IT is all a part of the entertainment or draw for the Second Life Platform and is used to pay for its operation. To show what I mean, as to the cost or expense a disabled person escaping the real world into second life’s virtual world, I will use Greedy as an example.

Second Life uses an exchange rate for dollars or cash or credit of money, to exchange them for lindens in the virtual world. Each Linden is worth a certain amount in the game world that Second Life promotes and operates. Yes, Linden Labs, and their Second Life program is making money hand over hand with these gambling games that attract so many. The game is set up with twenty-four boards in a square set up each board contains six blocks with avatars of dice on them that rotate when you click a button. The object is to match certain numbers in certain ways so you get higher points. .You win if you go over ten thousand points, and beat everyone else in the game to the finish. If you go out at ten thousand points and win, you get an option to roll for more points, and if you can then reach twelve thousand five hundred points you win bonus linden and gather more points toward a tournament each Sunday. Now to understand why I saw Linden Labs and it’s Gambling Sim Owners are taking people for money, I will show you how they do it, and how the program works in favor of the Sims owner who gets a percentage in the game.

Yes, Linden Labs is charging these Sim Owners who run these games, for licenses to run them, and the game owner also takes a percentage per game played. For Example, once the fees are paid to make the game legal in Linden Labs Cooperate ways, they get their money up front or you don’t run the game sims. Second, the Game owner takes a percentage of the profit of each board played. Each player must pay one hundred lindens to participate. Now 100 lindens are not worth too much in real money, but at the rate of approximately 20 minutes per game, the money can go fast and furious and I am talking about the cheapest one they run. Yet you must buy or earn these lindens in Second Life as I have said, many put their credit cards into the game to make these linden purchases on a regular basis just to keep playing the games. These are lonely people who are without real life partners or ones with partners they don’t like or are escaping from reality and the real world, ok! They come here spending days at a time hiding, from their real life as much as they can to handle the loneliness of their real lives.  In the end, just like in real life they get angry when you call them on anything that disturbs their games, how much they make from them or anything else. The anger is from their frustration with you when you realize how you are being used, and taken for money in this so called Virtual World.

Many of the Second Life Members believe it is their life, and they act as if it is a real part of their lives when it is virtual folks. The reason they get so caught up in the virtual world is simple, Second Life, Creators Linden Labs made it an addicting experience and they take advantage of the disabled, lonely and unhappy so they can make money Period. The sad part is this for those who have just enough money to enter this Virtual World and who are capable of doing nothing more, they are being drained by a company and platform that is taking full advantage of it all to full their pockets only. For Approximately 8.37 cents American, you get 2000 Lindens, do the math now and you will get the exchange rate and see what I mean, the Lindens go fast at 100 lindens per greedy game.  Now The Owner of the Sims and the Game Creators in Second Life have a deal of 100 lindens per game to play, say they get 8 players at the table at a time. That’s 8 hundred lindens sitting in a pot, but they only pay out a part of that part, they keep the rest making a decent cut for sure percentage wise. Every 300 they get playing they pay out only 195 to the winner, do the math ok, they are eating profits at the expense of disabled, ill, or lonely individuals and taking advantage of those less fortunate in the world. In truth, it is all a profit scheme for Second Life, The Gaming Sim owners and the game creators. Sad huh!

 

A Father’s Cry !


A Fathers Cry

 

In Brightest days and darkest nights, whether a father’s decisions are wrong or                   right,

He wakes up loving his children in all ways,

Even in the darkest days.

A father is a father no matter what, even if he wasn’t the dad you thought he                        should be,

If he was not there while you grew up, were there reasons, you could not see?

Did he forget you and walk away, without a word, like your mom did say?

I doubt it you see, for all fathers, are not free, to make the decisions of what                          they can do and who you see.

We are human and we have our faults, but so do mothers and the courts.

Just remember one thing child you sprang from me.

You carry my genes, you carry my traits, you carry parts of me, the man you                         say you hate.

Yet through the brightest days and darkest nights, through all the loving and                        hating

And the fights, through all of it my child I think of you each day and night.

I couldn’t see all of the one I married and made you with,

Hell no child, no man could see that shit,

I was not the one who treated your mom wrong, but I am the one who left                            when she told me

to be gone.

I wasn’t given a chance, or had no way to stay, so I made the best decision                            come that day.

I had no idea of what they would say, behind my back since that day.

But I can tell you this, just as I did when you were born,

You were born of love and born of joy, just like every other girl or boy,

I did not rape your mom, or do her harm, she is the one who couldn’t                                      overcome previous harm.

I did not fight when she said divorce, for what would it have helped, or                                changed the course,

The truth is as I have always said, I gave her what she seeked and she marked                      me dead.

So now the years have all gone by and I call you up and you ask me why,

I tell you that I want to know who you are and you to know me, for you will                          always be my child, my star.

Do yourself a favor and me too, don’t tell me I was a sperm donor and didn’t                        care for you,

Don’t tell others I was never a dad or father, for in truth, it’s a lie,

Why, should I bother?

For you will never admit I was a dad for you were too young,

But no matter what, I will always be, your Father!

The Truth, The Whole Truth and Nothing But:


After President Donald Trump’s trip to the Middle East that ended yesterday, I find that I want to hang my head in shame when I hear his name mentioned with the title of The American President. He shames us with his speeches, he shames us with his lack of real ideas and he shames us by his actions and reactions to others around him.  He is not what I or other Americans expected for a President and I am sorry that Former Director of the F.B.I Comey, interfered in the election process, in such a way as to give him the Presidency. It was the biggest mistake in American Justice history, and in American Politics’s history also. Period!!!!!

As American’s celebrate Memorial Day, remembering those injured and dead who fought for our country is vital. As one of those Veteran’s who sacrificed I say this to all who voted for Donald J. Trump, the mistake you made in voting for him is one you and your children will have to live with forever, as he tears down American values and embarrasses us in the world, I hope you now realize that you let blind hatred and jealousy and  stupidity, ruin a nation of greatness and drive us to our knees.  His team of fools that he surrounds himself with in the White House are inept and unintelligent individuals giving him the wrong ideas and answers to the world’s problems around him.  he has no need for or use of or any business listening to advice from Steve Bannon, Jared Kushner, Reince Prebius, for a few and let’s not forget the great and smart Kellyann Conway lol. Come on folks, have you ever in all American History seen a White House filled with the blind leading the blind so to say, sad isn’t it? If President Donald J, Trump wants to improve his chances of improving America and wants to help the country he will make some changes immediately. Bannon must go, Priebus must go. Conway must go, Jared Kushner is his son-in-law, is not a politician and he has no experience at all, he doesn’t belong making Russian connections or any other connections for the American People. Let’s be realistic please the sadness is this folks, while Donald J. Trump plays at being President, his nepotism is killing America and it’s ability to do the right things in the world. While Donald dances and parades and makes a fool of himself and the country he represents, the class of clowns surrounding him makes him look one hell of a lot worse than he has to.

The Donald as he so nicely likes to think of himself as, from his days as Boss on The Apprentice, needs to wake up and realize, the famous phrase he used then is more appropriate to use now, than ever before in his life. You want to save your daughter’s husband from jail and ridicule Mr. Trump. fire him and pardon him unconditionally, and let him go home in peace. Otherwise, he will face congressional pressures and questions on this Russian probe and end up in jail. I hope that is clear enough for you to understand. If you care for your daughter and grandchildren you will listen and react to this. The embarrassment and shame you will bring down on your name Mr. Trump is just beginning, don’t ruin and wreck havoc over the Kushner name too, let Jared go home to his wife and children and lead a normal life, not devastated but your political ineptness and stupidity.  It may be the first and best thing you can ever do for your own daughter and grandchildren!

As Memorial Day Weekend begins to get closer to it’s ending, we all have faith and believe in our Military and it’s sacrifices it makes for the country, and President Trump, it is time for you to pay hommage to them that served also. Don’t take our benefits away Mr. Trump, don’t knock down the Veteran’s Administration Hospitals or funds. Don’t hurt those who served and ask us to give more than we have already, give us some respect, some support and leave us alone. Don’t touch Medicare, Medicaid or Social Security either, do you know how many families you will destroy doing so? Do you know the hunger and pain and suffering you will bring to those who served and those who are survivors of those who served? Stop and back up and realize, the needy, the hungry, the homeless and the injured, need protection and help too, do the right thing damn it. Leave Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security alone, for you have no idea, due to your rich, highways, exactly how hard it is to depend on these services and funds for people to really survive. Do You?

Mr. Trump, we don’t need a wall on the Mexican Border and you know it just as well as I do. So stop trying to fund with American Taxpayers Money, for a wall we don’t need and should never even consider in the first place, just because Steve Bannon and other in your campaign suggested it to you. It’s stupid and unnecessary and we all know it and we do not want to pay for it anymore then the Mexicans do. Save the money and kill the idea now.

Health care Mr. Trump was a problem forever in this country and you know it, the American people know it, and the Republican and Democratic Parties know it too. You are trying to repeal and replace Obama Care when you should be trying to fix it with your great deal making skills. Prove you have the skills you claim Mr. Trump. negotiate and fix Obama Care and leave it be, make it work for all involved. Don’t destroy the only thing that had a chance to work and had at least some way of helping Americans who needed it most and still do. Negotiate Mr. Trump with the Hospital and Health Care personnel, and The Doctors and Nurses and Technicians who work in the field and those who control the Pharmacies in America. make them listen. If you can’t, then do us the next best thing, bring Canadian Health Care to America and install it in full force for all Americans. It’s the least you can do, for your Republican Party and politicians can’t write a decent health care bill or law to help Americans, they haven’t written one law or bill and neither have you since your election Sir and I doubt you ever will. Let’s be honest Mr. Trump you don’t care two cents what happens to Healthcare in America, for you and your family will never have to struggle to get it, your rich, Daddy made it easy for you and all of yours. You’re a white-livered suprememist Sir, and you don’t give a damn what poor or homeless or helpless Americans need, what you care about is what will line your pockets with more money and your rich friends pockets too. Sadly, this is what you are and although this will anger those who support you and you, yourself, it is true. Get off the Golf Courses you built, out of your golf carts, and look around. Stay out of your properties you own and stop milking America for money when you visit them, use Camp David like all the other American Presidents did, you spoiled little man you. Pay back the money you milked from the American people, and let’s get on with real business. It’s not right in my eyes or the American people’s eyes, that every time you think you need a few days off you go to one of your own built resorts and have us pay for you for you having a good time. It sucks, pay your own way, your rich, and pay us back for the trips you already took.

Can’t Change the Pain and Hurt !


Can’t Change the Pain and Hurt
We can’t change time, we can’t change people, we can’t change anything that has gone by,
We can’t change how we feel, we can’t change when things get done or don’t,
In The end we can’t change what has been, but if we are smart enough to look,
Maybe we can see through the noise and the din,
Enough, to know, when to let someone in.

I can’t change what happened in the past, and Lord knows the time flies by too fast,
I can’t make a difference now that your grown,
That you must do all on your own.

You can hate me if you wish; you can condemn me for my ways,
You can hate me for what I did in my yesterday.
You can hate me for what you have been told,
Or you can check me out for yourself and be bold.

I can’t change the lies, the cruelty, or the pain, I can’t change the past they lived with their shame.
I can’t reach back in time and say I am sorry, for saving my own heart and mind and soul through all the worry.
I can’t cry out loud and try to make you understand, but I can tell you this, the pain has made me this man.
So, when you think you can take advantage and push me around, ask for money and get it and then put me down,
Listen very closely, and listen now, to the silence you hear so loud and so plain,
Every time you call me a name, you, call me a sperm donor and know not a thing, of why I didn’t wear that marriage ring.
Every time you cry out in anger remember this, you break my heart and that I can’t resist.
You are my daughters, by blood and birth, but it does not mean, I must take all the hurt.
So when you lay down your heads upon your pillows and go to sleep, think of the pain I have that you don’t know that I must keep.
I will not cry out for forgiveness or in shame,
For my daughters, I am not to blame. I did nothing wrong, in those days or since,
And I know in my life I shall never be a prince.
But hear me now, hear me loud and hear me proud,
I won’t take being called a sperm donor in private or in a crowd!
And this is not Allowed!
