K.111 --

the first thing I wondered was to what Mozart piece you referred. It is a spurious entity, an opera overture extended into a small symphony and also known as K.120 or K. 111.

This said, sports betting is a sucker's bet. People bet on their team as fans... OK, I'd probably be tempted to put some money on a long-shot of the Detroit Tigers in 2019 because their pitching has suddenly gotten better. If it is not as good as when they had a rotation of Verlander, Scherzer, Price, and Porcello (how did they not get a World's Championship with that?), pitching is 90% of the managerial headaches of either field or general managers. Tiger offense is weak, but that is far easier to rectify with the personal growth of current players or with players who can be brought in.

Orrin Hatch is from Utah, one of two states with no licit gambling. A state that outlaws gambling of all kinds internally has a right to ban its people from gambling on computer terminals within the state. This is states' rights. Other states may prefer that people play in their casinos or buy state lottery tickets to keep the money in state. Sport betting is for suckers.

Life is a nightmare now.

You'll be wiretapped if you make a phone call and tracked by license plate readers if you drive.

If you go to a baseball game or Disneyland, you'll need to give your fingerprints, be molested, and be made to carry a microchip.

We're all slaves living in a prison.

Who would want to be born into this world?

I am unable to accept the idea that I should be an obedient subject of a gang of corrupt, unprincipled thugs who pontificate about freedom while enslaving the population.

To be honest, technology made that inevitable decades ago, when the realization of what was possible first emerged, and we did nothing to contain or control it.  When it finally starts to effect the bottom .09% of the top .1%, because that top .01% wants an even bigger piece of the pie, there may finally be a correction.
Intelligence is not knowledge and knowledge is not wisdom, but they all play well together.

Every day the US gets worse. We pretend everything is fine, justify things, lie to ourselves, and stay silent.

Do you think things will get better on their own?

At point will you get mad? When will you resist? What will say when the economy collapses, you get sent to the concentration camps, the civil war starts, and WWIII breaks out?

Will you feel any responsibility at all?

Are you just going to take it?
