And it gets even better as liberal Californians who supported the law are discovering they have to pay up:
Some health insurance gets pricier as Obamacare rolls out - Many middle-class Californians with individual health plans are surprised they need policies that cover more and cost more.


Pam Kehaly, president of Anthem Blue Cross in California, said she received a recent letter from a young woman complaining about a 50% rate hike related to the healthcare law.

"She said, 'I was all for Obamacare until I found out I was paying for it,'" Kehaly said.

Classic.

Notice how none of the usual suspects are defending any of this.

I'm still waiting for you to explain how any (let alone most) of the EOs violate the Constitution. I don't plan to engage on any other topics until we settle at least one. You changing the subject constantly is just tedious.

So, I'll ask once again, please do explain which EOs violate the Constitution, and how.

Do a little research on all the fema camps poping up all over the US, that doesn't alarm you just a little? Did you even look at that EO link?

I used to think conspiracy types were just as loony as the next guy, but I can't help but get this sinking feeling with all the shit that's come out as of late between the NSA crap, the fact that the Boston bombing could have been a set up attack, etc.

Seriously, call me crazy, I'd understand, but there's certainly a lot of very fishy shit going on.
People have been peddling that crap for decades, and none of it has ever happened. It's bullshit. Humans are designed to see patterns in things, and we see them even when there's really nothing there. Just like the people that see Jesus in a piece of toast.

No I get that, but it just seems different with all that has come out as of late. That and I truly have zero faith in Obama as a president, and no it's not only because he's a democrat.

It's really not different at all. It has always seemed different and more real to the people coming up with these crazy conspiracies. You think they weren't utterly convinced of the stuff they were saying back in the past decades? They were. They were still wrong though, just like these guys are wrong today. It's nonsensical. There's no actual evidence. Just a bunch of crap they string together into a huge circular logic loop that makes no sense.

I get that you don't like Obama. I imagine that anyone would hate him if they bought into stuff like that video. But do yourself and the rest of us a favor and separate out the crazy shit and the hyperbole from the actual facts. Focus on real issues, not a bunch of stupid stuff. There are plenty of things to be critical of without inventing a bunch of stuff that just destroys your credibility. Hell, Sepharo made a list of perfectly good things to be pissed about back in post 430. Start there.

Oh jesus fucking christ, are you serious? I got less than halfway through (out of sheer morbid curiousity) and could feel the stupid just melting my brain. That's the most ridiculously unsupported bullshit I've ever heard. Anyone that buys into that kind of conspiracy crap is beyond help.

Which one of those 23 proposals establishes a gun registry? I don't see it. If you expect anyone to understand why you are so pissed about this, you're gonna have to articulate your argument here. You're not doing that right now. Please try again.

Since you didn't watch the link obviously. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pi1c2JOSxwI
Pay special attention from about 12:30 on. Around 25:50 he calls on congress to ban assault riffles and impose a 10 round limit on mags, Again a direct attack and infringing on the 2nd amendment.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBj7wj0Lx7c again a link you didn't watch, all EO's signed in by your buddy Barack "fuck the Constitution" Obama
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxtGaZrKDvs

So basically you're full of crap. None of his proposed EOs have anything to do with a gun registry, and none of them violate the 2nd amendment. While I don't agree with him, and would oppose the legislation myself, he's not violating the Constitution by asking Congress to pass assault rifle or mag bans.

This is why nobody takes you seriously. You make claims about him violating the Constitution when it's plainly obvious that he's not. This is also why it's such a pain in the ass for people like me that support gun rights, because I get lumped in with a bunch of screaming assholes that have no idea what they're talking about and just spew a lot of WHARRGARBL!! It's fucking frustrating.

You sir are a fucking retard.

Again, him asking Congress to pass a law doesn't violate the Constitution. If you think it does, then you're the retard. You can't name a single proposal of his that violates the 2nd, and you just keep blathering on and making no sense.

Here you have Obama talking about making executive orders to not only force a gun registry database, and for what? But to strip rights that are not to be infringed.

His gun bills have all failed, so what does he do? Circumvent the process and goes right to executive orders.

Mark my words, this guy is the single most dangerous president we've ever had.

So that there isn't any confusion, you don't need an amp, effects, or tuner to play Rocksmith -- these are are built in. You can even free play within Rocksmith, selecting from among the variety of available amp and effect models to shape your sound. But yeah, to play outside Rocksmith, you would want an amp and tuner.

Line 6 does make good products for multi-effects and amp modeling. I can also highly recommend the new Fender Mustang line of amps. These days, even low cost amps are pretty good.
Yeah, I saw that I didn't need an amp to play RS, which is why I haven't been in too big a hurry to get one. But I would like to be able to practice and play around outside the game too, so I'll want to grab one pretty soon. I'll take a look at the Mustang and Line 6 amps, thanks!

I said "bad law", and I was referring to FL's self-defense laws.

You might want to look into this as well:

POD Studio UX2

Has about any effect you could possibly want (as well as a built in tuner). You can plug some headphones into it and jam. Only thing that is required is a computer to run the interface for effect selection. I have that and the floor pedal version, but the floor pedal is meant for actual gigs, and is a bitch to use.

As for the guitar I use, I think it's an Ibanez JS100 (one of the low end Joe Satriani signature series guitars).

Looks pretty cool. I still need to get a basic amp right now. I'll probably do a little shopping around this weekend for one. Not sure exactly what I should get yet.

My opinion is we have too many people in the US for socialized health care to ever be done in a way that's going to be affordable. Regardless of which party's plan it is. It's just not going to work in the long run doing the actual math.

Is "Obamacare" really socialized health care though? Do people in socialist nations have to pay a premium and a deductible like people do under the ACA? I always thought socialized medicine meant it was paid for completely out of tax revenues.

It is though, it's requiring everyone to pay into a service provided by the government, something that SHOULD not be allowed to happen period.
No, it's really not. It's requiring us to purchase plans from corporations, not from the government.

We've been through this. It's not unconstitutional. Hell, the Heritage Foundation came up with the individual mandate, not those socialist Dems.

The same goes for the first and second amendment, Obama has talked more than once about silencing members of the media that he doesn't agree with, advocating boycotts on members of the media like a Rush, or Fox in general or the Bob Woodward case,just because he doesn't like what they have to say.

RollinThundr wrote on Oct 26, 2013, 15:21:
He's also made reference to executive orders on the 2nd amendment which is not in his power to do. The media is there, and this is ALL media, to challenge politicians in both policies and actions. We don't have that now, instead we have a media that is an extension of their own bias be it left or right.
You obviously have no idea what those proposals were. They weren't going to violate the 2nd amendment in any way, and I say that as someone who is a gun owner and supports gun ownership rights.

RollinThundr wrote on Oct 26, 2013, 15:21:
We're setting a very dangerous precedent, people really need to wake up regardless of party affiliation.
Really the Zimmerman case was a perfect example of this which is why I brought it up. How many times has a president in history ever made a federal case of black on black crime, or black on white crime? When have you ever heard the terminology before the zimmerman case of "White Hispanic?" Never mind the double standard when talking about black conservatives, equating them to race traitors, calling them Uncle Toms or the like.
The Zimmerman case was an example of a bad law and a whole lot of uninformed people spewing a lot of uninformed crap all over the place. The bottom line is that since there were no useful witnesses, we don't know who started the conflict. We do know Zimmerman made some really bad, and downright stupid, decisions, but that doesn't tell us who initiated the fight. Since the law doesn't require him to provide any evidence that lethal force was required or that he was attacked, they had to acquit.

So after spending $3.2 million on the lamest ad ever (click that if you dare), Oregon still failed to enroll ONE PERSON through the Obamacare site.

Yeah, they are having problems like everyone else it seems. Definitely a mess of a rollout. But they do seem to be doing fairly well in spite of that. It'll probably be closer to the end of year before they have the problems resolved and people start signing up. After hearing about the issues, most are probably just going to wait until they hear that it's improved.

Seems like RT wants to label anyone who doesn't agree with him as some hippie liberal so that he can dismiss any argument without even considering it. I definitely don't fit the typical liberal mold, and I think that most of us that he's arguing with work in corporate jobs and are in the upper few percent of household incomes in this country. RT pretends there is no center in this country though. You either agree with the TP or you're a liberal. It's a bizarre spectrum he seems to use.

I have plenty of issues with Obama, and I don't think Obamacare is a much of a solution for our problems, but then we weren't going to get much of a solution given how Congress has been. I figure the Republicans had a good 10+ years of control of Congress and the Presidency and they didn't do much of anything (and what they did do, they didn't pay for), so we take what we can get. It's at least an improvement, technical fuckups aside.

I want people to have health care. Our current system is just the most retardedly expensive way to provide health care for people who can't afford it. Maybe Romney is ok with us picking them up in an ambulance and taking them to the emergency room, but it's just so unbelievably fucking stupid! Let them get preventative care and early treatment.

Thanks for the site suggestions. I'll have to take a look at those. I've found some beginner lesson vids on YT that should help too. I'll probably take the guitar to a local shop to get set up, unless a friend of mine is around to help with that.

So this is the guitar I decided on after several hours of reading and watching Youtube demo vids. Liked the sound, and most people that have one seem to like it s lot. It's not too exprnsive either, which is nice.

Squier Affinity Strat HSS

A good starter guitar is CHEAP, lol.

a) You don't know what a "good" guitar sounds like, so that doesn't matter
b) You're probably going to bang it up or slack on maintenance or otherwise wear on it faster when you're just starting out
c) You might decide you're just not as into learning as you thought you might have been after trying it a while

And so on. It's best not to spend a whole bunch of money right away, you can always buy something better later when you know what you're doing. I got a Squier Bullet Strat for $130 or so to go along with the original game when I got it almost a year ago, and even that is too expensive for a starter axe by some opinions I've seen. You might prefer a different body shape, though. Just remember to pick up a strap (the ones that come with cheap guitars always suck), a bunch of picks, and maybe a change of strings to go with it.

I kind of have the opposite opinion. Like you, I got a Squire as my first guitar, and it sounded horrible. If it sounds horrible, you think YOU sound horrible, and its a bad feedback loop. A good guitar makes a lot of difference.

As for Rocksmith 2014, I can wait to get this. Does the original Rocksmith PS3 cable work on the PC? I'd imagine it's the same thing.

Thanks for the advice guys. I'm looking into the options still, and doing some reading. I may go hit one of the better stores here in town tomorrow to take a look at what they have. Hopefully I'll get something picked out by this weekend.

Wow, this brings back memories of desperately rereading the bottom of the game boxes to verify that, yes, the computer will not in fact run USNF/Quake/Tomb Raider/TIE Fighter very well.

If I wanted to play this game, history would be repeating itself because I'm 2 GB short of the requirement. XD

Yeah, shit, I'm still only on 4 gigs. Granted I'm in the process of upgrading but I figured next mobo I get I'd be fine with 8 gigs of RAM. So is 6 going to be the new standard? So what will we really need at least? 8? 12?

Damn, if that's the kind of party it's going to be I'm going to stick my dick in the mashed potatoes!

RAM was pretty cheap last time I upgraded my box, so I have 12 in mine. That was from a couple years ago. I tend to multitask a lot, so I use quite a bit of RAM. I could work in a VM, have at least 100 browser tabs open, and can still run a game and just alt-tab out whenever I want. It's pretty nice. Don't really see needing more than that. You could probably get by for quite a while with 8 though.
