Ah well.
If the reviews are good I'll just have to turn one of the available into a sniper.

Generally, those crying "victim" are those like you. Which makes it hysterical that you get angry, claiming others do, but who on this board is more put upon than the straight white people? Any time anyone here claims to be attacked they're straight white people whining about video games...

Go to any topic here about "identity politics" and look for Cutter and Quinn (who is otherwise a great poster.) They're the ones, with several others, claiming something is being taken from them. No one else.

I'm nobody's "victim" nor am I "angry".
You proffer your opinion as do I. However unlike you, I don't feel I am entitled to some sort of "special" dispensation or privileged to protect me from having my opinion challenged.
You proffer your opinion, I disagree and challenge it.
I proffer my opinion, you are free to challenge it.
That is how it works. No "victim hood", no "anger" (except from those who can't stand their opinions challenged).
However if it was left up to you and your fellow lefty cohorts, all those who fall outside of your "special" groups would be prevented from challenging any opinion of one of those "special" groups lest it be labeled "hate speech" which is clearly designed to suppress any opinions you don't like.(even if it contains clear statistical fact)
You are free to express your opinions and I support that right whole heartedly however, I believe that is not a gratuity you would extend to me. You would rather I went away or was silenced.
Not going to happen "bucko".
Now your day is starting, mine is at an end.
Time for bed.

I bet know that the people of Hong Kong would like a Second Amendment right about now.
They have been carrying signs about just that, waving US flags and singing the American National Anthem.
It just occurred to me:
Hong Kong protestors are more US patriotic than most participators on this website.

I'm not surprised you cite an 80s movie. You think you live in one, and your warped ideals on patriotism stem from them.

Well...
That is about as desperate reach as I've seen. The movie reference was a jibe, a joke. Hence the "LOL" and the .
Pathetic if that is all you got.

You're certain you're not a boomer, clutching desperately at a society that has left you and your culture behind?

Are you sure about that?
Not very realistic are you?
I've been over this before with you.
Your lefty "culture" is being politically defeated or denied ALL OVER THE WORLD.
Take off your "rainbow" colored glasses and breath deep the reality that people are turning away from your "special" brand of cultural Marxism, identity politics, perpetual victim hood, thin-skinned offense taking, socialism and globalism etc. that looks like it comes straight from the pages of George Orwell in large numbers all over the world. Yet you still seem to think that you have "us" covered.
On October 21st we'll see if Trudeau survives. (doubtful but, possible)
On October 31st the UK WILL leave the EU. They have just signed the documents that remove the effectiveness of EU law upon the UK.

And..
I fully believe that Trump will be returned to office in 2020. (no guarantees. My opinion)
Love how quickly the MSM and Democrats have dropped the Mueller nothing burger.

If Hong Kong had a second amendment, PLAN would have used it as an excuse to invade and quell an "armed insurgency." As long as the uprising stays non-violent and unarmed, they have the support of the rest of the world, and Xi can't use force without setting China-world relations back 20 years.

And I would agree.
Despite the fact that I have a full understanding of why the Second Amendment is important(at least in the USA) I am no fan of guns (never owned one) or physical violence in any form. (never started a fight in my life. Finished a couple though. Not proud of that. had no choice)
However, like I said, Better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.
If the Chinese Government decides "Damn the Torpedoes" I (personally) would like my chances better if I had a gun than without.
The Chinese police have already been smacking into 'em.

Now that I think of it:
It seems like a fair trade..
1.4 Million disgruntled US left wing communists for 1.4 Million Hong Kong based US patriots.
I'm sure those Portland pANTIFA (always in a bunch) would be much happier under communist rule in China.

Personally, I ignored his comment because it's his feelings on the matter and he's entitled to it. No one's in a position to disagree about how someone else feels. If he doesn't like it, he doesn't like it. Not all LGBT people share the same opinions on things, they are as diverse a group as any other group.


Yes but, notice how you nearly always only hear from the perpetually offended activist assholes.

Like I said (before the censor swept in):
they seem to want to attract my attention FAR more than I want to attract theirs.

Gearbox is just virtue signaling.
Why is it not acceptable to just put characters of both genders in the game and then whomever plays it can pretend they are whatever part of the LGBTQWERTY they want?
I like sniper rifles so, if Mordecai is a playable character the rest is moot.

When people ask me for help I just help them out, I can't imagine being rude to them for no reason. And people usually pay it forward - I get a lot of beer for my trouble, we get invited out by other couples a fair bit and a friend of my brothers helped me redo the kitchen last summer which saved me a pile of money. The price? Fixing his wife's Macbook and saving her pictures.

Yes. Ever since I closed my second hand PC business I still get a lot of phone calls for help from my regulars.
If I can help over the phone it's free. If I have to visit... Not so much.

YouTube should stop recommending garbage videos to users.

Everyone has a differing opinion of where that "garbage" line should be drawn. It's a no win situation.
I prefer the "Wild West" style. As long as your not calling for violence....

No one is holding a gun to your head forcing you to watch them.

1 hour later it was scrubbed and #TrumpBodyCount replaced it with only 29K mentions.

This is what you call a cover-up.

Biased pricks.

Even the "lefty" Lame Stream Media are questioning this.

With that said...
Whomever is guilty in this case (with proof) should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
Yes. Even if that is Trump. (doubtful in this case. Clinton, not so much.)

In the interest of personal safety:
I have no inside knowledge of the Clinton's activities.

Project cars AI just isn't up to scratch.
Hopelessly slow in some corners.
Overly fast in others.
Across all tracks.
AI doesn't suffer wheel spin on start so, racing with the Ford Capri Zakspeed turbo(Group 5) is near impossible due to the fact that the player has wheel spin and the AI doesn't and you constantly get punted up the ass unless you can get out of the way in time.

No one wants to silence. You dinks think being kicked off a platform for being assholes is censorship. It's baffling.

Also, what kind of moron picks his opinions based on what angers others? "I want to repress people because it's funny, but don't ban me, that's the worst thing anyone can do to another man!"

Also:
In a 2011 interview with Jornal de Notícias, Bolsonaro linked homosexuality to pedophilia, claiming that "many of the children who are adopted by gay couples will be abused by these couples". He further argued that Brazil does not need legislation specifically targeting homophobia, because "most homosexuals are murdered by their respective pimps at hours when good citizens are already asleep".[198] In a May 2002 interview with the Folha de S.Paulo, Bolsonaro told the newspaper, "If I see two men kissing in the street, I will beat them." He then publicly defended beating gay children by saying: "If your child starts to become like that, a little gay, you take a whip and you change their behavior."

I find your stupid ideology so damnably laughable.
You get foaming at the mouth outraged over Jair Bolsonaro who (to the best of my knowledge) hasn't done anything to gay people while at the same time stay totally silent on the real threat to the gay community that the Islamic countries are. Gay people HAVE NO CHOICE but, to be silent and hope the authorities in those countries don't find out because if they do their lives are under REAL threat not some imagined threat from words spoken 8 years ago.

The reason you stay silent is because your stupidly laughable ideology has made Islam one of your precious protected groups and if you dare to speak up against Islam you will become one of those tired, worn-out labels you like to bandy about with abandon. You risk becoming an "Islamophobe".
Talk about the very essence of HYPOCRISY.
I laugh at the ass whipping you get all over the world because people who follow such a stupidly laughable ideology thoroughly deserve all the ridicule it receives.

Keep your eyes closed Beamer and your outrage missdirected as it is what your best at.

This is what one calls moving goalposts. Yes, Islamic government's are evil. Islamic people are not. Do you see that clarification?

Absolutely.
Nowhere in any of my posts did I say Islamic people are evil.
That being said:
Islamic governments are made up of Islamic people right?
A great many Islamic people strongly support those governments right?
You have to acknowledge the truth in that or be a complete hypocrite.

Move the goalposts? Maybe but, it sure was effective in exposing the hypocrisy of your laughable ideology.
The veil has lifted and people all over the world are seeing your ideology for what it is.... laughable.

I am happy to discus any of this shit with you at any time. Despite Redeye9 shoving his nose in trying to be the center of attention.
