Kenny Rogers Roasted

For this all to work as designed it has to operate like a casino. It’s predicated on the fact that most of us will lose and just keep putting more into the machine. The machine empties into one pocket. Money and happiness flow upward and work and misery flow down.

Kenny Rogers was mistaken. You never had a choice in the first place. There is no holding or folding, and you can’t walk away let alone run. You are, however, on a train bound for nowhere, but you’re in engine car with everyone else, shoveling your soot-black soul into the furnace to keep the machine moving toward its nowhere destination.

Listen to me read this post with bonus material below or find it most places you listen to podcasts.


  1. Great post and podcast. There’s something in this song that just grips a person’s soul. I think we’re all gamblers but the gamble is playing us. Not a very good feeling. But I still want to believe Kenny Rogers and his inspiring words. Yep! Humans are good at sugarcoating reality. 🙂

    1. It’s tough not to side with the man who sang Islands In The Stream. LOL Perhaps he was just as duped as the rest of us. I fully understand that reality could use a serious sugar-coating, and some sprinkles and a cherry dip and maybe some euphoria-inducing drugs LOL. Thanks for always reading my stuff. I always appreciate your thoughts.
