Quote from: "Fireball1244"

After what the Republicans did in Florida in 2000, Democrats are right to be wary.


LOL, you seem to forget that votes were counted and the personality-lacking Gore still would have lost.  

Whatever though, I expected this from the democrats and will be glad when this election is over.  Bush has his 4 more years and I get to laugh at 4 more years of democratic whining.

I agree, this is despicable.

But to say that the GOP isn't doing this also is pretty naive. Implying that the Dems are the evil party while the GOP is squeaky clean is bizzare logic to say the least. I mean, look at what Tom Delay is getting nailed with now. Holy shit.

You have to accept the fact that most politicians are corrupt. And the current two party system is REALLY corrupt.

It's absolutely ridiculous to think that the GOP is playing this game straight also. Absolutely ridiculous.


I haven't implied anything regarding the GOP.  

I would be more than willing to review evidence you have of the GOP practicing tactics similar to this, or anything else.

Yeah, cause we all know that Republicians would NEVER try anything like this...they are all squeaky clean angels.  :roll:

Hmm why doesn't Drudge obtain some secret documents from the Republicans, oh that's right cause he doesn't give a hoot about what they do.


Again, you can't justify it.  Period.  End of story.

It's despicable.

XXXXX DRUDGE REPORT XXXXX THU OCT 14, 2004 10:58:04 ET XXXXX

KERRY/EDWARDS ELECTION DIRECTIVE: CHARGE VOTER INTIMIDATION, EVEN IF NONE EXISTS

**World Exclusive**

The Kerry/Edwards campaign and the Democratic National Committee are advising election operatives to declare voter intimidation -- even if none exists, the DRUDGE REPORT can reveal.

A 66-page mobilization plan to be issued by the Kerry/Edwards campaign and the Democratic National Committee states: "If no signs of intimidation techniques have emerged yet, launch a 'pre-emptive strike.'"

The game, a key title for MS' console in the run up to Christmas, is believed to have surfaced on Usenet and the web last night, possibly in the form of a localised French version, according to early reports.

French version?  

There's a joke in there somewhere about every button causes Master Chief to drop his weapons...

I saw one comment of Evil Avatar that was "First Doom 3 now this..."

I couldn't help but laugh.  Do they really think Doom 3 was the first big release pirated before?  Hell there was leaked version of Bungie's "Oni" 6 months before the release!  And it was the complete version!  

Every game gets pirated these days.  The only thing that stops people is respect for the developers/publisher.


Oni wasn't close to being as big a release as Doom 3.  

I agree with your main point though.  

Kingdom Under Fire has been available for like 4 months.

Ah yea, I did see that in the preview of next week after last nights episode.

Clark said "We can't just run to Miami", or something along those lines.  

I would hope they won't have some huge conflict or something.  It would be cool if they befriended each other Clark gets to have some fun with his powers for once. smile

2574  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / O'REILLY HIT WITH SEX HARASS SUIT on: October 14, 2004, 01:29:44 PM
#1. Just 3 weeks before the attempted extortion, the woman emailed a friend at CNN that she was "surrounded by really good, fun people" and that "i'm home and i'll never leave again". Does that sound like a women suffering pervasive, perverse, sexual harassment?

#2. Morelli, his firm, and his wife are supporters of the democrats, giving democrat candidates tens of thousands of dollars in the last four years alone. Morelli is a long-time Kerry supporter, giving Kerry's campaign $2,000 as early as 1995.
http://www.opensecrets.org/indivs/search.asp?NumOfThou=0&txtName=Morelli%2C+benedict&txtState=NY&txtZip=&txtEmploy=&txtCand=&txt2004=Y&txt2002=Y&txt2000=Y&Order=N

#3. The lawsuit is timed to coincide with the Presidential election, literally an "october suprise". Considering the alleged harassment began over two years ago and the woman never complained, it boggles the mind that she would willingly subject herself to the abuse for over two years, only to finally take a stand in the final weeks of a Presidential election.

#4. Company policy requires employees who believe they have been sexually harassed to report the incident as soon as possible.

#5. The woman continued to choose to meet with O'Reilly alone outside of work despite allegedly being harassed on such occasions.

#6. The woman threatened to leave FOX if she didn't get a raise and got one. Later she left FOX for CNN, making it clear her decision was motivated by a higher salary. She then agreed to return to FOX if they matched her CNN salary. Not once did she complain of a hostile workplace. Her sole concern was money.

The irony of all this is that this greedy woman will never work in the media again. No employer will take the risk that she might try to set up a lawsuit against them as well.

Crap, I missed this week's ep. due to a cable company snafu.  The season so far has been pretty good.  It's one of the three shows I find worth recording.


If you have a decent connection, I would be happy to put it up for you to download.  Let me know.

I really liked last nights episode as well.  Great show and season so far.

Can you at least give us some kind of insight what next week is going to be about?  smile

What this means is.... nothing.


The people who CAN play it are pirates; they wouldn't buy the game to begin with. <shrug> unless you've got yourself a PAL system it's not going to matter much anyways.

They'd best be *really* secure with the NTSC version. I've stopped reading reviews and "all abouts" as I don't need them.

I'm going to play Halo2 on November 9th at approx 12:15am and that's it.


Not being a jerk but that isn't true.   Anyone who has an Xbox capable of playing copied games, can play games regardless if their PAL or NTSC.  

Just an FYI smile

And I'm sure I'll play this version once or twice before I pick up my copy from Software Etc., on Nov. 9th.

Talking Points Memo
Enough is enough

Hi, I'm Bill O'Reilly... thanks for watching us tonight... we are living in treacherous times. That's the subject of this evening's Talking Points Memo.

Just about every famous person I know has been threatened and worked over by somebody. Fame makes you a target... it is something that has to be taken seriously. As I've mentioned before, I have received many threats over the years... everything from death letters to some guy running around the country offering people $25 thousand to sign affidavits accusing me of whatever.

The lawyers here at Fox News have been great in dealing with these situations... although the stuff printed on websites remain almost impossible do deal with. But there comes a time when enough's enough.... and so this morning I had to file a lawsuit against some people who are demanding $60 million, or they will "punish me and Fox News."

$60 million.

In a case like this, you have to fight, even at some risk. These people trying to extort this money from us will lob all kinds of charges, knowing that some in the press who don't like me or Fox News will gleefully pick the stuff up. But in the end the justice system will take care of this situation... I have to believe that, because I am simply not going to allow these people to extort me, or anyone else.

Obviously, I can't get into specifics as the litigation is in motion, but I do respect my audience and feel you should know exactly what's going on. This is the single most evil thing I have ever experienced... and I've seen a lot. But these people picked the wrong guy. They can throw anything they want at me, I'll take it. And in the end... we'll see who's left standing. And that's the memo.


I believe him.

O'Reilly really needs to work on his sex talk.

His screed about Al Franken was both frightening AND hilarious. I'm going to have a hard time taking him seriously now.


I would hold that thought until the "tapes" come out.  Afterall, the law firm has ties to the DNC and the timing is suspect.

If its true though, I agree, he is finished.  

I find it hard to believe he talked like that to anyone though.
