Beamer I know you all too well -- you're the rah-rah contradiction guy, the true parrot who has all the spin and none of the sense of it.

Your "it's stomping on the little guy" is so laughable its silly, I would LOVE to see the kind of company you'd make. But you never will I guarantee it. The projects I 'oversaw' never were horrible, I made them work out regardless of complexity everytime. All on you bro, all on you.

And prez's sentiment about 'tons of corporations' being people-stomping assholes to get rich is one of the most central to liberal views. I've agreed and disagreed with him before, but that VIEW is completely rank and file liberal.

And for the record, I never ever once mentioned the shit stupid word 'libtard' - that shit is for angry dummies, as is your laughable retort Beamer.

And I must apologize to Prez, I overlooked that the last one I quoted came from Beamer. It's valid, but not for Prez.

Any political post from Beamer is pretty much reciting the DNC playbook word for word, including playing the race card often. But he's not a liberal he says. Allthumbsup

Well it only took them 13 years to get rid of Ballmer. Maybe in another decade they'll be rid of all the old chaff and bad practices and MS might start thriving at that point. Still, I can't blame them for being pissed.

For someone who obviously has zero idea or experience in the actual business sector, you sure do seem to think you have all the answers.

No, Duke Nukem Forever levels of ridiculousness happened because they were public about it and over-promised. Valve has done no such thing.

Promising short dev time for episodes never happened? I seem to recall that happening. Then their staff got bored and decided to work on overrated crap like portal and Left for Mediocrity er I mean Left for Dead and re releasing Counterstrike 17 times in different forms. Now they're making their little steam box.

Valve along with Blizzard are prolly the two most overrated over protected entities in the entire industry.

Feel free to drop off the thread and go back to playing Call of Duty.


Cute, haven't touched Call of Duty since World at War and don't plan to anytime soon. Oh god someone doesn't think Valve and Gabe are the bestest things ever! Quick tell them to play COD!

I don't like either party, but in the case of the financial crisis, Republicans deserve a much larger portion of the blame.


So Bush repealed the Glass–Steagall act and forced banks to loan to people who never should have gotten said loans in the first place since they couldn't afford them? Clinton and the democrats are the major reason the housing bubble burst. Yet it's the republicans fault, just like the gov shut down is the republicans fault, just like the Senate failing to vote on a budget is the republicans fault. ETC ETC ETC

Notice a trend there? Everything is always the big bad evil republicans! damn them! /shakes fist

It's satire actually, not actually from Newell :). But it's spot-on, I don't get why everyone is screaming for a quickly developed sequel instead of something special.

10 years is quickly developed? HL episode3/HL3 is approaching Duke Nukem Forever levels of ridiculousness at this rate.

Nobody would ever say that though. Is there anybody who would argue that anonymity is only used for good?
You set up a strawman and made a point against it.

Anonymity is a very important aspect of discourse.
Just ask Silence Dogood... Actually, Richard Saunders... Er, Anthony Afterwit... I mean, Polly Baker... Benjamin Franklin.

I'm not going to support any attempts to curtail it. Anyone operating a forum for discussion can run it however they wish of course. Which leads me to the rest of your post which seemed to be more about censorship/banning which isn't really the same discussion. I'm very much against that as well but an operator can censor without removing anonymous/aliased posting.

Almost like taking a quote out of context and setting up your own point against it. I'm talking about curtailing hateful internet speech, trolling and other stupidity on private forums and websites. I notice a lot of it hides in offtopic religious and political rhetoric and that people will often register multiple places to spread it. I think anonymity allows them to do it more frequently and aggressively. As for censorship, we do it everywhere in society already, we're just less honest with ourselves about what we're doing.

What is your argument here, that government will use that against the people somehow? I hadn't really considered that but I'm not sure how it pertains to discourse on private websites. I understand the importance of anonymity in civil discourse between citizens and its government, particularly with how it pertains to voting but I think that's a slightly different topic and that the ship sailed on that with the advent of big identity farms like FB.

And who determines what's hateful? You? The rest of the liberal thought police?

Nevermind the fact during Obama's first 4 years spending for just the war in Afghanistan surged well past the entirety of Bush's 8. Forget we have troops deployed in more than 150 countries. And forget Democrats helped authorize the Iraq and Aghanistan war and Obama just goes in without Congressional approval arming the very same people who want to kill us.

Also don't forget that they actually ended one and are ending the other next year. Or hey, do forget that and try to place the blame solely on one party.

Smaller government! Less spending! Elect republicans! Oops.

The sooner people clue in that both parties are just corporate whores the better we'll all be. Politics needs a complete do over in America.

Yes he's ending it on Bush's time table as well. I think we all know both parties suck. Yet I'm sure you'll be voting for your girl Hillary anyway. You know Ms."what does it matter what the president knew?" Clinton? Boy she sure wanted to know what Nixon knew at the time of Watergate, guess Bhengazi wasn't as important though correct?

I wish liberals would stop acting all high and mighty when the only thing that comes from that party is hate, bigotry and out right lies.

Funny that even when the liberals have all 3 branches they still accomplish nothing, yet the republicans still get all the blame. Wonder why that is?


Cool story, too bad it isn't true in the sense that they actually would control all three. They don't have the house. Anything less than all 3 is gridlock and typically if it is 2 Dem - 1 Rep it's always gridlock. If it were 1 dem and 2 rep, that has proven to work much better.


To the other poster we all get both sides are a mess. File it under "lesser of two evils".

For the first two years of Obama's presidency they had both the house and senate. Still got zero done. The republicans also got the blame for that as well.
That's crap as well. They had maybe a few months of actual control due to some congresspeople not able to be present for various reasons. Oh, and having to clean up the wreck of an economy that Bush left us with. (I just threw that in since you seem to like wild over-generalization and over-simplifications when you're not just outright lying).

Bush left a mess for sure, Clinton got the ball rolling on the recession however in multiple ways. Junior was just left holding the bag when it exploded so of course he's going to get 100% of the blame.
However here's what gets me, how many more terms does Obama need to have in office before he's a tiny bit responsible? As for your fact check bullshit on the messiah's promises, when you put things like the cost of college as a win in Obama's book and something he's fulfilled as a campaign promise among others, make sure it's true. College tuitions certainly aren't going down.

Both parties suck, Republicans would spend us into bankruptcy at a slightly smaller rate than the Democrats yet either way we're not following the Constitution at all.

Instead of pissing all over the document that makes this country great perhaps we should start honoring the fucking thing.

It's also funny for all the promises Obama made during campaign mode. He's fulfilled zero of them. Oh wait he's still in campaign mode? Halfway through his 2nd term? You don't say?


I care about Obamas campaign promises because I'm not a secret republican looking to score an evictory on the internet.

Smaller government, rahrahrah! More like hahaha.

You care yet he get's a pass. Nixon get's impeached for bugging a couple offices. Obama's reading your phone records with his cronies Reid and Feinstine. It's amazing how far this country has gone down the shitter.

The only explanation is the liberal dominated media is in the tank for Obama and voters in general have such low standards for Democrats they can get away with murder and nobody cares. The same children here claiming "WAKE UP PEOPLE IT'S BOTH PARTIES!! LOOK AT ME I GET IT! CORPORATIONS! BANKS! JEWS!" won't be able to get in line and vote for Hillary fast enough come 2016. Fucking hypocrites.

To be fair, I'd obviously label myself conservative at least fiscally. And even I can't stand either party. At this rate it's either start voting for the libertarians or give up completely.

He did one thing right. That doesn't make him a hero. Every other aspect of his life demonstrates he was a grade A douchebag. And I'm sure his turning them down had nothing to with being principled or noble but he was considering the possible economic ramifications.

Remember kids, if you're successful, you're a grade A douchebag. This is your typical left wing viewpoint in spades.

The last time we let them 'rule' we got Obamacare, and even the totally hooked libs know what a mess it is and it hasn't even started.

You mean the plan formerly known as Romneycare? The plan that was dreamed up by the conservative think tank The Heritage Foundation? The plan that was championed by Republicans for years until a Democrat decided to coopt it? Yeah, it is kind of a mess, you're right... But, it's the best thing they could get done, and it's better than what we had (ie: nothing at all, fend for yourselves wild west style)... We've been living under it for years here in Massachusetts, and we haven't all died yet...

Yes Obama/dems stole the idea and made it into a FEDERAL monster in disguise with the purpose of single-payer -- Obama's ultimate goal. Just do s simple comparison search and you'll find many significant differences, none of which should have been implemented state-wide.

Being IN Mass, it's already costs us more for a while now, since some parts of Obmessiah care kicked in, rates have literary tripled here. Hope & Change!

Comparing what Romney did to the mess obamacare is.. lol Liberals always inventing reality as they go along.

I know the answers for the majority of liberals, I'm slightly interested in your answers.

I'm sure more democrats will take a hard look at healthcare right after conservatives start practicing what they preach with things like 'defense' spending.

The Republican philosophy is nihilistic, "To shrink government down to the size where it can be drowned in a bathtub."

Funny how that never seems to actually come to fruition when a Republican administration is in office. It's just campaign rhetoric that people quickly forget, talking points for people to parrot. He's right, America needs a Roman style wake up call, both parties are utter frauds.

We need smaller government! *gets into office* Government is fine, nothing to see here!

Unless Americans can learn to sidestep the trap of liberal/conservative-democrat/republican and start looking at the facts of the matter on political topics, we're screwed.

That's bullshit. The GOP are now, and have always been the problem. They refuse to budge on anything ever. The Democrats are the only ones who ever look for consensus. And it's why people are tired of the GOP.

Funny that even when the liberals have all 3 branches they still accomplish nothing, yet the republicans still get all the blame. Wonder why that is?

Fact of the matter it's all smoke and mirrors, both parties are responsible. The only solution is smaller government.

That's because the GOP doing business as usual. Won't allow an increase in debt or taxes so then you have to cut. But they won't make any concessions on their pork being cut. And then they wonder why people are abandoning them.
Yes because you can totally spend your way out of a financial crisis. Liberals and their absolute fail when it comes to the economy. Let's print more, cause it to be worth less, and widen the gap further. Doing the very thing they whine about as if there are no rich liberals in the world.

Yeah, didn't have that problem with my parents. I simply asked them for what I wanted to watch, R rated or not. It all comes down to teaching your kids to ask for something instead of them beleiving that they should go behind your back.

I take it you don't have kids of your own then. Parents aren't omniscient, you can't stop your child from doing everything wrong before it happens. Kids being kids, aren't always going to take no for an answer and there are many ways around safeguards for these sorts of things. In-app purchases are getting pretty ridiculous, letting people rack up hundreds of dollars in bills before it can be stopped. It's easy to do the backseat parental quarterbacking until its your phone bill that is hit by some scumball company who is making a living off accidental billing.

I have about as much respect for in-app whoring as I do for people who sell energy contracts door to door to the elderly.

But if you taught your kids between right and wrong and that actions have consequences, they generally stay in line.
