1  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / NO police confiscating all legally owned firearms on: September 09, 2005, 03:38:52 AM
And while this jack booted thuggery takes place, Dubya (who could not have gotten elected without NRA support), and the ACLU sit on their hands.

This story is just starting to break, and hopefully gun owners will spread the word.

Oh, and what are the odds of these citizens ever getting their legally owned forearms back.

I'd say about zero chance.
2  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / NO police confiscating all legally owned firearms on: September 09, 2005, 03:22:01 AM
Let's put it into perspective.

People are being ordered out of their homes, and even if they have plans to stay somewhere besides an evacuation center, their guns are still illegally confiscated.

So even if a NO resident plans to live with friends or family, in another state, where gun ownership is legal, the owners are still forced to leave their guns behind.

I have no problem with banning guns from evacuation centers, but this goes way beyond that.

Yeah, I'm talking about a mod that turns all of your containers into one giant container. That's the one.

Has anyone ever used it?
5  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / question: WoW mods old and new on: September 06, 2005, 02:20:30 AM
I've heard of a mod that allows you to see you equipment, as if it was in one giant container.

Has anyone heard of that one?

I guess my biggest fear wish mods was hidden keyboard loggers that might steal my password.

How do I know which mods are legit, and how do I know which mods are approved by Blizzard?
6  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / City of Heroes Players...I want to hear from you! on: July 24, 2005, 02:50:31 PM
Yeah, to each their own.

I saw nothing in COH that I felt even came close to a Gnomeregan or Deadmines, or any zone layout that was even remotely as interesting or unique as Duskwood or Teldrassil.
7  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / City of Heroes Players...I want to hear from you! on: July 24, 2005, 01:06:11 PM
I loved the character design system, and the powers were extremely cool, but everything else sucked.

The zones I hunted in were boring.
The missions I did were boring.
The city layout is boring.
The mobs are boring.

And worst of all is the grind.

I will admit that being able to fly was quite fun, but not enough to keep me playing past the first month.

It doesn't matter if Hillary Clinton is elected President, because Corporate America wins, either way.

"There is no way to legislate against reality. Outsourcing will continue,"

Nice to see her choosing foreign workers over American workers.

I never backed away from the first link. I simply provided more articles to address other accusations you were making.

Providing more links, which seems to infuriate you, does not translate to be moving the goalpost.

And if our borders are left unsecure, in order to appease organizations like LULAC, then they provide yet another opportunity for terrorist attack.

So there is a direct connection between illegal immigration and terrorism.

Open borders attract enemies.

Oh, and here's an official Mexican Gov't website that gives instructions on how to enter the US illegally.

Still want to deny that the Mexican Gov't promotes illegal immigration?

I mean, what exactly is your argument.

That illegal immigration isn't a problem?

That illegal immigration can't be reduced by securing our open border?

That securing our open borders wouldn't reduce, not just illegal immigration, but also crime, and the risk of terrorism?

That the Mexican Gov't is not actively promoting illegal immigration, or working against any measure that would reduce the number of people that enter America illegally?

That American citizens have absolutely no increased tax burden, because of illegal immigration?

That illegal immigration has not contributed to America's healthcare system being strained beyond it's resources to provide services for more patients than it was designed to handle?

That illegal immigration has not contributed to America's educational system being overcrowded and stretched thin?

That radical Hispanic right's organizations do not promote illegal immigration as a way to "take back their land"?

That the Mexican Gov't doesn't apply massive pressure on local, state, and federal agencies to look the other way, and deliberately ignore the request of communities to address what they see as a growing problem, which threatens their very ability to substain their way of life?

That there is no noticeable connection between   violent crimes, gang activity, and illegal immigration?

That there is no noticeable increase in diseases, such as TB, and illegal immigration?

This is as close to a direct insult, as I've voiced in this thread, but the complete disconnect from reality required to support those positions is almost pathological.

Open borders attract terrorist.

I could post many more articles about this, but would they really do any good. You seem to argue on emotion, not on reason, and your favorite tactic is to attack and insult.

Honestly, why should I waste any more time with you.

And I haven't moved the goal post. I think the agenda is quit real, and quit chilling. Keep the borders unsecured, for as long as possible, so as many illiegal immigrants can pour into America, in as short a time as possible, regardless of the impact on the economy, environment, healthcare, taxes, education, crime, or national security.

And with this newfound political muscle comes an arrogance, and the comment I quoted in my initial thread is a reflection of that arrogance.

No, you appear to be a bigot because you appear to hold to the notion that there is a vast pan-Hispanic conspiracy to overthrow the government of the United States. Or was it to pollute or precious bodily fluids? I can never keep track.



Again, more smart ass insults.

Do you really think they make your argument any stronger?

But back to the facts.

The Mexican Gov't hands out free information on how to enter the US illegally, and fanatically applies pressure on Washington to keep our borders unprotected.

Seems pretty organized to me.

And thanks for completely ignoring the link I provided.

Oh, and while I'm not terribly worried about my precious bodily fluids, there are other health concerns that result from 3 million people illegally pouring over our border each year.

Another link that should send chills down the spine of every parent



And not that you'll respond to this point, but regardless on how you feel towards illegal immigrants, shouldn't we protect our borders, if only for security reasons?
16  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / A brief moment of honesty reveals a chilling agenda. on: July 20, 2005, 05:15:50 AM
First of all. I simply pointed out that a member of LULAC claimed that Texas had been "conquered" by Hispanics, which I felt was not just inaccurate, but highly insensitive.

But I'm a bigot for calling that asshole out.

Second of all. It's chilling because the goal seems to be annexation, not intergration. Look at the website I posted. Look at the map that shows Mexico, California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas, as all one color.

But I'm a bigot, because that sort of racist nationalism concerns me.

Third of all. It's chilling, because there are other reasons to secure our border, such as crime and terrorism, but the Mexican gov't works very hard to keep our border open, which makes us more vulnerable to terrorist attack.

But I'm a paranoid bigot, because I resent that.

Say what you will about me, but at least I haven't resorted to name calling to make my arguments.
17  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / A brief moment of honesty reveals a chilling agenda. on: July 20, 2005, 04:15:35 AM
It's always nice to see the OO gang try to import their very special brand of name calling, which seems to be the only way they can engage in debate.

I mean, if you can't argue the facts, it's so much easier to insult people.

I fail to see how any rational person can deny that illegal immigration is far from being a spontanious event.

I mean if the Mexican gov't giving away nice brochures on how to illegally enter into the US, isn't a sure tip off, I don't know what is.

And I absolutely believe that the facts back up the assertion that Mexico promotes illegal immigration as a way to gain increased influence in American politics.

But, you guys are right. It's all harmless.

Your quote in the first post started the race baiting.


So let me get this straight. Pointing out someone else's racist blustering is in itself race baiting?

19  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW Dupe, rumors of a rollback of up to 7 days on: July 19, 2005, 05:42:28 PM
I know this sounds harsh, but if what you say did indeed happen, then a rollback is the best course of action.

Almost two years ago, a huge exploit hit EQ, and flooded the servers with cash. SOE didn't do a rollback, and the economy was toast.

I really don't think the game ever recovered from that.

Whatever you accomplished can be done again, but WOW won't ever be the same, if these items, and cash, are allowed to stay in the game.

Quit acting like a child.

You won't get far in life if you have to resort to name calling, in order to argue your opinion.

Now, back to the facts at hand.

When you have the Mexican gov't handing our brochures, on how to illegally enter the US, and when radical groups like this have long promoted illegal immigration as a way to "take back" the SW, and when you have a member of LULAC claiming that Texas has been conquered, don't be surprised if some Americans take it seriously.

I for one welcome our Minuteman overlords  biggrin

Fella, this is like the third Illegal Immigration thread I can remember that you have started here.

Nobody is buying, go sell it somewhere else.

Or go far away, either will do.


Oh, you speak for everyone here, huh?

And, I have no intention of going away. My threads don't even come close to violating the CoC, so you need to get over yourself.

But when you can't debate the facts, you have to fall back to personal attacks.

And last but not least, if you don't like my threads, then simply don't read them.

As usual, the only people pushing that angle are Hispanics (like the LULAC member who claims that Texas has been conquered) and open border apologist, who cloak their agenda in the history of segregationism, by shrewdly accusing anyone who dares to have a problem with 3 million people entering the country illegally every single year, as somehow being no better or different than racist who wanted blacks to use different toliets and water fountains.

It's race baiting at it's worst, and it's not going to work.

Quote from: "dbt1949"
The article is certainly not telling me anything new about the flood of Hispanics to Arkansas. I suspect in the last 12 years probably 20,000+ have moved to NW Arkansas,thanks to Tysons (the chicken plants).They do hard work for low wages that most "local" people around here wouldn't do(for that low of wages) and were recruted by Tysons.
It has created quite a bit of racial tensions in the area.


There's been a new development. The Mexican gov't has opened a consulate's office in your state, and that has usually been the precursor to a rapid increase in illegal migration.

That's how it's worked in other states, and there's no reason to believe it won't work that way in Arkansas.

Your comments on Tyson are interesting. Did it ever occur to you that if Tyson didn't have the option of hiring cheap labor they might be forced to actually pay citizens a living wage, with benefits.

In it's own way, illegal immigration is just another form of union busting.

You can make any jokes you want, but not everyone shares your sense of humor when it comes to this subject, and for those Americans who are getting a bird's eye view of just how destructive illegal immigration can be, you're dismissive attitude might be seen in poor taste.

But you have a right to say whatever you want, and you don't need my permission to speak your mind, and I harbor no illusions that everyone will agree with my opinions, or my post, when it comes to this subject.

I was attacking your topic title "A brief moment of honesty reveals a chilling agenda". As for the opinion of that Reverend? I don't think you should take someone like that seriously. I think the people of Texas will be outraged if you suggest that there is any truth to the Reverend's opinion. Hispanics people haven't conquered Texas.


While you're certainly entitled to play down his outrageous comments, I can only hope that the good citizens of Arkansas are not so gullible.

So who here he is a big collector, and of what?
