While I agree msduncan with the overall idea, civilizations have fallen. Under boot or under-supported, the US society can colapse. Will it be all mad-max? Likely not.

Be that as it may, I think Palin as prez is a bad idea.

True enough.   I'm planning to get a lot of post-Apocolyptic practice time in with Fallout 3 next week.  slywink

The next president gets voted in, a bunch of bad stuff happens, everybody blames him and gets pissed off at their party and the next guy that will save us from all our problems gets elected, fails, gets blamed for all the bad stuff that happened while he was in office, the next guy comes along that will save us.... blah blah blah....


Actually this is what I was trying to say.     Paulbot worded it better.

I thought he was talking about msduncan's party, not him literally. At least that is they way I read it.

Have to admit, the over reaction is really amusing.

Yea, that was supposed to be a plural you (responding to "my side"), not a singular one.  My bad...it was poorly worded and gave the impression that it was directed at MS personally.  My sincere apologies to MS on this one.

Ok no problem there.   I've made the same wording errors before here and on the other forum.

I'll be the first to say this though:    Reality is that no matter which person is elected, I sincerely believe this country will be just fine.     Our culture has grown such that since the 1940's whichever election we are involved in is 'the most important in our history'.    I think history has reasonably shown us with a few exceptions that life and government goes by as normal no matter who wins these things.

OK he did call him a socialist, lol.

Of course he doesn't have a cite for that.   Blackadar -- who should have been banned from any reasonable forum for the behavior he has displayed repeatedly here -- means to smear and not to hold a real conversation.    He led the charge on calling me a bigot, after all, for absolutely no reason at all.     

I've never once even thought that Obama was a muslim, or a terrorist.    He IS an inexperienced Chicago socialist liberal, however, and I stick by that.

Your side paints Palin as either stupid, or insane (relative to her religious beliefs).

My side paints Obama as a socialist.   And he is.    Redistribution of wealth is socalist.    This tax plan of Obama's is redistribution of wealth.   38% of those he would give a tax cut to already get full refunds.

I never have advocated or subscribed to the idea that Obama was anti-American, muslim, or any of the blogger smears.   Liberal bloggers, on the other hand, are just as out of control as some on the right.

Collector's edition -- No PS3 collectors edition?    appears to be fact since I just asked an ebgames kid and he confirmed.

performance --  not good on the PS3?    Can't figure out if this one is true or not.   the rumor was that it was slightly better than the PC, but not nearly as good as the 360.    This could be fanboi rumors, but i can't confirm.


Any thoughts?

Nick Saban is 7-0 for the first time in his career.     Alabama is 7-0 for the first time in 2 years, but in it's highest rank since 1993.

Mount Cody fell yesterday and was carted off the field.    This could loom large for us against Tennessee next week.    MRI results are still pending.     Preliminary reports suggest an MCL injury.   No word on if it was a pull, partial or full tear.     



I've been disappointed in Alabama the past 3 games. I mean, I'm glad they keep winning, and hey a win's a freakin' win in the SEC. No matter what, 7-0 is strong, especially coming out of the SEC. But ... my concern & disappointment lies in our 2nd half play this season.

We must be utterly destroying teams in the first half, but our 2nd half collapses show a lack of killer instinct, which is needed to win it all, I think.

31-0 over Georgia at halftime, Georgia outscores us 31-10 in the 2nd half.

17-7 over Kentucky, ends up 17-14

24-3 over Ole Miss ends up 24-20.

I'm not frowning on them, but I am concerned. Penn State has been beating the living shit out of everyone they've played, and Texas is OMG strong.

Well to be fair -- I was at both the Kentucy and Ole Miss games.    Ole Miss was a TOUGH team.   Kentucky should have been a blowout, but we had two critical drive stopping turnovers and several very weak flags thrown against us that called back huge momentum swinging drives.       In other words -- the Kentucky game wasn't nearly as close as the scoreboard showed.

1857  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: In which I pimp the new Fallout 3 site on: October 08, 2008, 03:28:19 PM
I'm a little depressed that I preordered the Collectors Edition of Fallout 3 for the PS3, and we are not going to see the DL content.    I mainly preordered it for the PS3 due to the reliability of the system over the 360.    I just can't count on my M$ box to keep running if you know what I mean.

I guess I can find comfort in the knowledge that the game is (hopefully) big enough to keep my busy for a LONG time even without the content, and that the sheer number of games coming out this fall will make the DL content less nessessary in combination with the (hopefully) large size of the game.

1858  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: In which I pimp the new Fallout 3 site on: October 08, 2008, 03:47:34 AM
Kathode --

One of the early interviews about the game seemed to give a definate impression that the 360 version is going to have way more downloadable content than the PS3 version.   In fact the interview I'm thinking of -- I believe the developer or spokesman basically said there was a heavy pro 360 bias.    Is this accurate?    I have both consoles and I'm trying to decide.
1859  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: ROLL TIDE!!!!!!!!!! on: October 05, 2008, 03:06:19 AM
Whew!   That was a CLOSE one.     The team looks flat out tired.   Thank goodness we now have a bye week to rest.    Half way through the season, and we're 6-0.   I'll take it.

Oh.. and Auburn lost!   WOOT!

What a weekend!    1993 is the last time Bama was ranked higher than #3.    One of my favorite headlines of the day: No Funeral, Just a Rebirth.



Quote
As the Alabama strength coach famously predicted during practice last week, the blackout was a bleepin' funeral for Georgia, which lost 41-30. In fact, the blackout was a blowout until two late embalming-fluid touchdowns by the overwhelmed home team. Rest in pieces, Bulldogs.

But in classic circle-of-life form, this upset romp wasn't just an interment. It also was a rebirth for the Crimson Tide as a full-on title contender. In near-record time.

I am a stone producer.    I usually have a kidney stone once every year or so.    It sucks big time.

The last one I had we made it halfway to the hospital and suddenly the pain stopped completely.   I knew then that the stone had passed through and dropped into my bladder.    Once it's in your bladder you are home free!    

Anyway, we drove back to the house where I passed the stone, got dressed, and we went to the Christmas party as planned.

SurveyUSA interviewed 1,000 adults nationwide.

Key findings:
A majority of Americans say the debate should be held. Just 10% say the debate should be postponed. A sizable percentage of Americans, 36%, think the focus of the debate should be modified to focus more on the economy. 3 of 4 Americans say the presidential campaign should continue. Just 14% say the presidential campaign should be suspended. If Friday's debate does not take place 46%, of Americans say that would be bad for America.

You know, in reading a lot of the political debate here and elsewhere, it's really strengthened my belief that for 90% of voters, the election is a large practice in cognitive dissonance.  Nearly done by the 'chosen candidate' is going to sway one's opinion the other way and the entire time is spent justifying the decision that your choice is the right one.  By the same token no argument, rational or otherwise, by the other side is going to convince any of the opposition.

Basically - we believe what we want to believe because we want to believe it.

I think it's more of the fact that the two parties have moved so far away from each other on ideology that people just have to close their eyes and pull the lever for the one that matches what they think most closely.

So, if John McCain is elected President and cannot fulfill his term in office, do you think Sarah Palin would be qualified to serve as President, or would you be concerned about her?

Of course I would, but I'm casting my vote for President and not Vice President. And I'm basing that vote on current reality, not conjecture on what may or may not happen. I'm just as concerned with Obama's experience, or lack thereof.

Ditto.   I don't vote based on who the VP is.    If I did, I would never have been a big fan of Reagan.

The question was whether USC could survive, but I'm pretty sure SC is 4-0 in the span - swept Arkansas and Auburn, AFAIK (anyone I missed?), which would leave the rest of the Pac-10 at .500 (4-2 at home, 2-4 on the road).  Still not bad against the almighty SEC, especially taking away a powerhouse.

FWIW, I'm pretty sure msd remembers the Tide getting swept by UCLA in a home and home a few years back...    Tongue

First of all:   I meant could they just win one game and punch their ticket to the BCS Championship like they do now.    The answer is no.    If they had to play SEC football week in and week out, they'd fare like the rest of us.

Secondly:   UCLA beat an Alabama team shouldering the worst NCAA sanctions shy of a death penalty in half a century.    Have them play us now and we'll talk.

One common measure of a presidency is the before/after stats about economic growth.  I think that comparison is going to be terribly unkind to President Bush.

But remember, to the conservatives, it'll somehow be Clinton's fault.

Presidents normally have little effect on the economy.     An exception was Reagan who dramatically reduced taxes resulting in a mid to late 80's recovery.

that's right.... I also don't think Carter had much effect, or Bush Sr.
