161  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Obama seeking 1/2 Billion for Syrian Opposition on: June 26, 2014, 08:50:08 PM

Quote from: hepcat on June 26, 2014, 08:43:24 PM

America (and almost every large nation) has provided support via weapons to countries they later end up fighting.  The problem is that sometimes you have to support the lesser evil to combat the much greater one.   We were buddies with Saddam during the Iran-Iraq war.  Then we weren't a few years later.

But not doing so can result in consequences far worse than looking hypocritical.

Diplomacy is a game that often just comes down to staying alive, not winning.

How does helping in syria keep us alive?

Although I would recommend going with the HD version if you can find it.  Much easier to play with MGS 3 style controls vs Portable Ops (ie, 2 analog vs 1)

Explain.
163  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Obama seeking 1/2 Billion for Syrian Opposition on: June 26, 2014, 08:20:35 PM
Pretty late to the party. Is this a case of Obama sticking his thumb in Putin's eye? What do you think the chances are the congress gives it to him?  

The US powerheads just don't learn their lesson.  People we train today are the people we're fighting tomorrow.

ATB, not sure, but did you play Peace Walker?  It leads into GZ and if you go in blind the characters involved won't be as important.  It also contains spoilers about PW.

GZ is worth a play through so you can get used to the sneaking mechanics, especially if you are attuned with how MGS 3 played. 

I have it for the PSP but cannot find my power cord  crybaby

Just watched a demo on Phantom Pain. Holy Moly. May be rescinding my 'won't buy it because MGSIV was the perfect ending to the series' statement.

Should I bother with Ground Zeros?

Supremes strike down abortion buffer zone.

Not sure I get this.

Roberts opinion on this reads like an 8th grade civics essay "Petitioners wish to converse with their fellow citizens about an important subject on the public streets and sidewalks -- sites that have hosted discussions about the issues of the day throughout history,"

I'm about as anti-abortion as one can be, but 35 feet doesn't seem unreasonable or a violation the people's right to gather...?

Every response has been attempting to decompile your issue. No flaming. No piling on. None of that. Head meets wall

Same thing I posted in the link Ken linked to:

Finally read the gobble gobble thread and I think the issues are

Quote
1. No one responded in the thread.  It's frustrating when a thread one starts is a dud. Happens to everyone. Nothing personal. Especially on weekends.
2. Bitterness at no responses vented in a pretty jerky way.  I'm all up in these threads and I'm definitely not a part of any clique, though I do get why this place (all forums) at times feels cliquish.
3. On GT you make your presence known as much or as little as you want. I've had feuds on here that made me want to walk away forever.  But this really is the best forum on the net.
4. Sense of entitlement for having been around a long time. Sorry if you're feelings were hurt, but don't be petty. This is the best forum on the net (though it TOTALLY could use some more traffic and new blood) and it gives and takes away to all members regardless of seniority...

And yeah. Bad form. Hope MO is ok.

Sure, that's understandable. Also, on the Republican side, there have been a lot of repeated names over the last 62 years. In fact, since 1952, the Republicans haven't won a single election for President without Richard Nixon or a George Bush on the ticket. They also ran only one ticket between 1952 and 2004 without a Nixon, Bush or Dole on the ticket:

1952: Eisenhower / Nixon - won
1956: Eisenhower / Nixon - won
1960: Nixon / Lodge - lost
1964: Goldwater / Miller - lost
1968: Nixon / Agnew - won
1972: Nixon / Agnew - won
1976: Ford / Dole - lost
1980: Reagan / Bush - won
1984: Reagan / Bush - won
1988: Bush / Quayle - won
1992: Bush / Quayle - lost
1996: Dole / Kemp - lost
2000: Bush / Cheney - sorta won
2004: Bush / Cheney - won

Wow.  I'd never noticed what a dynasty the Bush family. Thanks for posting.

Oh and:

Oh and perhaps the point that Zeke is trying to make is that why are people sitting around fretting about a team name even if if it is offensive to them?

I find the band name Niggas With Attitude offensive. Same with Black Entertainment Television...but it's not my mission to correct those wrongs.

Also, they don't have the power to make medicines (or anything) free.  Not sure where that concern even came from.   icon_confused


No but they do have the power to strip legally obtained TM's whenever they want apparently. So why not benefit mankind?

And I have no delusions about Snyder, but he's clearly not greasing the right palms.

Edit: I wish Pr0ner would chime in. I think he works in the patent/trademark field.

I have trouble understanding why someone who constantly rails against a government he feels shows undue favoritism to the rich and powerful would be up in arms over a minority successfully pleading their case in front of that same government...and winning their case.   icon_confused

Fair question.  They have removed the ability of a company to profit from its trademark and basically opened the floodgates for anyone to do anything with that logo.  Doesn't seem like it's a power they should use...unless, you know, it was to make cancer medicine free. Maybe Snyder's lobbying group isn't big enough or in enough pockets.

178  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Redskins Lose Trademark on: June 24, 2014, 04:18:21 PM
The problem I have with this is that government stepped in and voided a legally granted trademark because it was 'offensive.'

I think it has more to do with the fact that most were successful lawyers before becoming a supreme.

I never had any affinity for him other than hearing his blooper reel where he blasted the program director for doing a dedication about a dog dying after an up tempo record.

I hated scooby doo and never knew he was cliff jumper until like 3 days ago.

I listened to his show every once in a while, but...well, he's not in my strike zone of celebrities I care particularly care about.

He was also Robin.

Always HATED Robin! Still do. In all media.

I have literally not finished a book this year.

Looked like a lot of rehashing the original.

I played a few matches of each type today.  I know I tend to be a bit cynical and negative in general anyway, but it's really hard not to just rip on this game for being basically a straight up Battlefield mod.  Same UI and everything. 

BLERG!

This make me sad sad sad.

Not sour grapesing as getting the XB1 was worth it solely for BF4, but my initial instincts not to buy a 'next gen console' seemingly were dead on.

I could have happily waited until Xmas of 2015 if not later to dive in given what has been revealed and released so far.

YOU ARE IN MY HEAD TOUCHING ALL MY THOUGHTS.

Woke up thinking this this morning.

I'm interested in Destiny, but I also thought I would be interested in Titanfall, but never even bought it.

I have a bunch of 360 games I could go back and play...we'll see.
