2561  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / FEMA Chief Michael Brown Removed From Katrina Relief on: September 14, 2005, 09:24:04 PM
Look, I'm not saying Bush didn't fuck up, he most certainly did,  but when this idiot was appointed, democrats and republicans both let him in.  That means, on the whole our GOVERNMENT fucked up.  there was no opposition whatsover, and don't tell me the democrats couldn't have at least voiced some kind of objection.   Nobody is doing their job worth a damn in Washington and I'm sick of both fucking parties.  I pray for the day a viable third party comes along and leverages the utter distaste that I and others have for our idiotic two-party system against these fucking thieves.

Just so we are clear- my disgust extends to both republican AND democrat, and any time anybody claims that one or the other is the fucking boogyman I feel they are missing the whole point- THEY BOTH SUCK.  And I'm sick of it.

So why is the head of FEMA given less concern, a guy who's background couldn't even pass basic scrutiny?


Congress did have to approve his appointment, you know.  There wasn't any interference at all, if I recall, from either side of the fence.

2565  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Im still waiting for the New Orleans Relief fund ..... on: September 02, 2005, 12:33:38 PM
Quote from: "unbreakable"
And of course, now reports are coming out that New Orleans was BEGGING for funding to maintain and expand the levies, and funds which had previously been allocated were diverted to fund the war in Iranq.

So, because Bush wanted to plunder funding for a very necessary domestic project, now an ENTIRE U.S. CITY is lost.  LOST.  New Orleans will never, ever be the same, thousands of people are dead, more will die, and all because of a horribly incompetent president.  But this is a broken record, because it's just a rerun of his 'planning' for Iranq (back when it was still Iraq, of course).

He is saying NOBODY predicted the levies breaking?  Is he insane, or just plain stupid?


Don't lay the blame of this squarely on the war in Iraq and George Bush:
http://apnews.myway.com/article/20050901/D8CBNMA88.html

Seriously, we are taking a sytemic failure of leadership for several DECADES, both on a federal level and a local level.

Still, Bush told ABC-TV: "I'm not expecting much from foreign nations because we hadn't asked for it. I do expect a lot of sympathy and perhaps some will send cash dollars. But this country's going to rise up and take care of it.''

"You know,'' he said, "we would love help, but we're going to take care of our own business as well, and there's no doubt in my mind we'll succeed. And there's no doubt in my mind, as I sit here talking to you, that New Orleans is going to rise up again as a great city.''


Yep, more cowboy grandstanding.  What an asshole.

Free or cheap oil will, of course, never be refused, however, because it isnt actually going to be used to help anyone.  Maybe the oil companies will lower their prices a few cents a gallon because of it, however.

I'm surprised he isnt looking into ways to charge the people from New Orleans rent, or hotel fees, or something.


Cowboy grandstanding?  Is he lying?  His statement pretty much jibes with what AA said about things.  In fact, your statement is much more asshole-ish than what Bush said.  Try to look past your hatred for a minute, willya?
2567  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Im still waiting for the New Orleans Relief fund ..... on: September 01, 2005, 07:41:36 PM
Honestly, any aid offered is a political gesture for the most part, but as they say, it is the thought that counts.  I knew that other countries would offer their condolences and support, it's just that the major media outlets aren't focusing on that sort of thing right now.  Personally, I wish the media teams would at least move in with all the supplies they can carry with them so that they can do more than just talk to people about how horrible the situation is.  Of course, some of them may be doing that we just don't know.

Unbreakable, let me see if I can get at least one FACT through your head:  
 I AM NOT A REPUBLICAN, neocon, or any of the other names you see fit to call me.  I am fully capable of having an opinion about something without proclaiming allegiance to one political party or another.  

Of course you will continue making one bullshit assumption after another about me and anybody else who doesn't agree with you, so carry on!
2569  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Deficits Don't Matter (yeah, right) [P] on: August 30, 2005, 06:56:09 PM
As clear as mud.

1.  You erroneously think that A.  The president is solely responsible for how money is spent and B. that spending/ surplus, etc. trends are defined by presidential administrations.  Sure, they have some influence, but largely it's a runaway train that has been far more influenced by things like the tech bubble, 9/11 and other econimic events.   Saying that the surplus occured because of Clinton's actions doesn't factor in the far more relevant situation of the tech boom and subsequent burst as he was leaving office.

2.  The government has been spending and wasting tax dollars for longer than any of have been alive.  Unless the whole system is changed, there is very little effect that we the people can have on it.  I haven't seen an administration in my lifetime that anybody could consider fiscally responsible.  That 'surplus' that you speak of was a bullshit byproduct of the tech boom that as we all know now was infated bullshit that caused more harm than good.  Perhaps if that surplus were used to prepare for the fallout from the bubble rather than pump up Clinton's popularity, we might've been in better shape.

Ah, a voice of reason.  Thanks, Toe, I was going to post something similar but you said it far better than I could have.

I don't understand how people can think that the president has that much influence over the economy.  It just isn't so.

Quote from: "The General"
Am i the only one who still buys VHS tapes , instead of DVD's?

Mostly because of the price on DVD's. I can get the whole die hard collection on VHS as a pack at the mall for 12.99, but on DVD its 22 bucks. The extra's too me , is a waste of time. The extra's on rush hour 2 was good, but too short and they showed the same thing in the movies.

I have a couple DVD's like Smallville 1 , 2 and i plan on picking up 3 & 4. But most of the time i just pick up VHS tapes.


Coming soon- The General's monumental plan to revive the VHS, betamax and 8-track tape formats.

Sorry, cheap shot. unibrow

Seriously, picture quality, requiring less shelf space, and the ability to go to anywhere on the disc at a whim (not to mention not having to rewind)  killed VHS for me.  I haven't even looked back.

No I wouldn't.  I don't own a dreamcast. and don't plan to.  You would have much better luck with PC- try online distribution and you can cut a LOT of overhead and not worry about shelf space.
2582  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Ways to end Piracy on: August 16, 2005, 05:50:18 PM
The only way you could possibly make this work is if you came out with a portable Dreamcast.  Not. Going. To. Happen.

Seriously, the fanboy-ism is cute, but don't think for a minute that you are going to make any kind of money off of a system that is no longer supported or even relevant.
2583  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Tipping? on: August 15, 2005, 06:08:31 PM
If you get bad service, my rule of thumb is to not  leave nothing, but leave a very small tip, otherwise the waiter thinks you just forgot.

After having been a waiter for many years I reward good service with 20%+, but  I ABHOR bad service, and want to make sure the server KNOWS I thought it was deplorable.

I like steam.  I see online distribution as the only way PC gaming is going to survive soon, and Steam is the best effort to date.  Sure, it isn't perfect, but it's better than starforce, lack of availability, etc.

I would be shocked if the 360 version looks better, and runs better, than the PC version.  I guess we'll see.  I realize the comparison is not apples to apples, but that sure as hell didnt happen with Morrowind.

Yeah, that's because it was the xbox, not the 360.

when the 360 comes out, it will hang right in there with the top of the line PCs for a while, and it'll be significantly cheaper.....

But, on topic, I have lucid dreaming most of the time.  Every once in a while I have an 'uncomfortable' dream, but I rarely have what I would consider a nightmare.  My wife has nightmares regularly and I think it's because she has anxiety issues.

You are missing the point.  It's not that they included it at all, it's that they included it and didn't alert the ESRB about it in their ratings review.  Rockstar had to know this would blow up in some way, stirring up controversy, generating tons of free press, selling more games.
