Speaking Douple-Plus, In? Out? Up? Down?
By: Mark W Adams

Plus-up, plus-down, double-plus, double-down? I always double-down in Blackjack on 11, sometimes on 10 if the dealer shows a low card. Is that what this administration is doing? Playing Blackjack with human lives? Well, it's time to plus-down about 175,000 pairs of boots, while they are still pairs!
