The lib and con cruxes of change

As January comes to a rather wintery end, I am thinking back to the even darker days at the beginning of the month. I feel things are on the upswing, even if a few resolutions have lost some of their resolve.

I've certainly talked about passion here, especially the passion for progressive causes, but it takes more than passion to effect change - whether it's about our own resolutions or a cultural revolution, of sorts.

It takes focus and commitment to effect change, too.

Conservatives are generally against change, and so their values tend to be more stable and identifiable. Conservatives (neo or not) can "stick to their guns" or "depend on the good book" - even when their guns have gone bad and their "good books" have led them astray.

In so many ways, conservative means hanging onto the past. An in so many ways, liberal means freeing ourselves from the mistakes, patterns and problems of the past- liberating us to face the future with better tools to solve the problems we'll never completely erase - or be allowed to escape.

Conservatives want to be held responsible through mysterious forces so they won't have to face their real fears - guilt, most of all.

Liberals want to be held responsible through secular forces - civil checks and balances - street smarts, the market, the arts, law and order.

That is if we want to be held responsible at all.

Immediately after the lay-flop followed by a second auction in hand. This time it starts with the first player left of the dealer and going clockwise rotation.
Players have three options in this situation:
Waiting (English: CHECK) - transmission queue to the next player without boost, wait out the play, which is a form of passive play or attempt to pry into what others are doing. This play is only possible when no one in front of us did not raise rates.
Raise (BET) - propose a game on a higher rate. If someone has already done it before us, and we want to play for big money at this point, we are talking about the piercing (RAISE). Set in the time of a new "price" for further participation in the pot for the other players.
Check (CALL) - alignment to conquer made by the previous player, accept to continue the game after the proposed higher rates, but without the piercing. The game can not go on, if all the other players do not check to top the last boost (or breakdown).
Of course, at any time, if it gets hot on the table and our cards in combination with the flop is not the strongest, remains safely withdraw from the game by ...
The fitting ... (FOLD) - that is, leave the game and lose all raised to date facilities and blinds.

After the "burn" cards from the top deck, leading the game teaches at the center of the table fourth community card for all that, like the previous three can be used to assemble the strongest poker. This card is called in English "turn" (there is actually Polish names, the players remain with the original terminology in English).
After the liner followed by a third auction in a similar way as before. The only difference is that the minimum raise, which previously was the big blind now be doubled. Texas Holdem - River
Finally a fifth community card is lined up on the table and all remaining players assess its impact on the final system they can create with the disposal of a total of seven cards (5 per table plus two added).
Followed by the last betting round (unless all players przeczekają it without boost) and participants who have not yet folded pass to compare systems. Texas Holdem - Showdown
Showdown or presentation (comparison) systems starts with the final conquering rate at the last auction (the player tested). He must show his two hole cards and thus betray the people what is the final system. Subsequent players who tested his conquest assess the strength of your hand, and if it is stronger naturally also show him to take the pot, but if you have a weaker system, they can just throw their cards without showing them, thereby recognizing his defeat.
