California in general, is definitely far left

Can you elaborate on what you think "far left" means? What social or economic policies are far left? How do you define socialism?

Pretty sure the point of ww2 was to stop the white supremacists, so for a second time, kinda curious about which side you rooted for if you think it was about stopping the "hordes" from overtaking Europe from the south...
https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/voice-of-europe/
Voice of Europe is a far right website that publishes sensational stories. sad

Voice of Europe’s stories consist of sensational click bait headlines and focus on a variety of topics that are mostly anti-immigrant with emotionally loaded headlines and content such as “Swedish student suspended for telling the truth about migrant sex crimes.“ Voice of Europe frequently uses factually mixed sources such as Breitbart, Daily Mail, Gatestone Institute, and Sputnik News.

Overall, this site is Questionable due to extreme right wing bias, promotion of propaganda, conspiracy theories and poor sourcing.

I feel sorry for the DangerDog.

That site's a train wreak. Their article about Brexit is just so shamelessly wrong, it's clearly for people who are deliberately ignorant of how UK politics works and who avoid using any critical thinking.

I don't feel sorry for people who believe that stuff. It's an act of cowardice, choosing to wallow in ignorance.

Europe is a dumpster fire and it's only going to get worse, there's a few countries that are putting up a good fight but for how long? Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic.

What was the point of WWII when they just hand everything over to invading hordes from the south. I feel sorry for the people in Europe that didn't want this for the future of their children, but can one person do when the state exerts their will against yours.

Why are you still listening to the sort of people who have repeatedly made a fool of you in the past?

And as others are pointing out, WW2 was to stop the people who manipulated the weak minded into thinking that the "others" are to blame for society's ills. Which side do you think would describe themselves as fighting to stop invading hordes of outsiders?

I don't see anything he's done or going to do to be anywhere near a "nightmare." In fact, I see him trying to undo the liberal fuckery.

What's a nightmare are these libtards turning this country (and even the world) into the next Sodom and Gomorrah. If you want to be afraid of someone, let it be someone like Hillary Clinton or anyone like her. Now THERE'S a nightmare because these people are turning millions to the path of eternal judgement.

Irrelevant deflection to Clinton ... everybody take a shot.

More than that, Cities is adding a new radio station: Country Road Radio. The radio host is pure Dixieland Delight, spinning six instrumental tracks and ten songs with original vocals covering Appalachian Folk, Bluegrass/Honky Tonk, Nashville Modern Country and Unplugged country.

Ugh, someone gag me with a red Solo cup...

=-Rigs-=

The radio station actually costs extra. I think I might skip that...

This looks like an excellent expansion, which isn't something I've said about CSL very often. I still love this game, I spent several hours making this junction the other day.

When I first heard that Sean Hannity was involved in the Trump investigation, I figured it was bullshit. Something I was supposed to believe because it sounded good. Now I'm not so sure.
Why would Hannity need a "fixer" lawyer that protects older white men that have affairs with younger women?


ooooo nice hadn't thought of that. wonder what kinda tabloid trash is in his closet.

The same stuff that is in (insert tv person here) closet.

Yes, it's totally normal for news anchors to share a mob lawyer with the President. Nothing to see here folks, right?

Controversial only to the immoral (which is the LARGE majority) liberals who gave up decency and morals long ago. The type of people who accept anything and everything, no matter how immoral or evil it is, just as long as it "feels good" and/or is politically correct.

When you accept everything, you will fall for anything.

"and sex workers say it will make them less safe by driving them offline."

What do you expect when you live a life of MORTAL SIN? Dance with the devil and he's going to poke you. Derp derp. Don't be a heathen and be a decent human being and you will have a MUCH better life.

Do you think religious fundamentalists are liberals? Do you think liberals are against sex workers' rights? Do you what you said doesn't apply primarily to Trump and his supporters?

The lies some people have to cling to - but I suppose when you accept everything...

In a lot of ways you might be right. I did "fill in the blanks" in the objectiveness of the article.

You don't write an article like this without wanting more diversification. This is definitely a "I'm not trying to sound like a social justice warrior but...." type of article.

I'm just jaded like cutter and Prez about this topic.

Fair enough. Thank you for talking about it like one of those two wouldn't. I don't doubt she wants more diversity and I do detect a tone of reluctance - I see it more as "I don't want a shitstorm" than "I don't want to sound like a SJW" but that's a matter of perspective.

Prez wrote on Apr 11, 2018, 13:00:
I have to admit, when I saw the topic of the article my instant reaction was similar to Cutter's. It's not that I don't support diversity in gaming or indeed any workforce, it's just that I'm so friggin' tired of hearing about this. You could chalk that up to me being a "privileged white male" but I sincerely don't think that is the case. Truthfully I'm just plain sick of hearing about this. Credit to the author for at least offering up some solutions instead of just complaining but that doesn't change the fact that I'm way past my threshold of fatigue on this matter.

I think a big reason is because people seem to want diversity for diversity's sake - to avoid the stigma of being anti-diversity because it looks bad to people who care about such things, all because media outlets hire from a pool that consists largely of white males. So the answer is forced diversity? That is just stupid to me.

The article isn't arguing for forced diversity.

How often do you hear about this? For all the emotion it causes, I personally don't see or hear that much on the subject of women in video games. The conversation that broke out a few years ago has largely subsided, merging into wider gender politics.

Maybe read it again, this time not obsessing about whether or not men are being blamed.

"risk upsetting their business model by putting diversification first"
That's not what it says.

"DIVERSIFY NOW BECAUSE WE DEMAND IT!"
That's not what it says.

"is that the mens fault?"
That's not what it claims.

"can't take criticism"
That's not what it says.

"DIVERSIFY for the sake of DIVERSIFICATION"
That's not what it says.

"there's no conspiracy against it"
That's not what it claims.

"companies don't need to start hiring only women"
That's not what it claims.

"it's called progress and it doesn't happen overnight"
That *is* what it says.

You call out things that aren't there and your rebuttal is something that is there. Seriously, what are you reading? It's an article about *how* to increase diversity, not why, where are you getting the things that you highlight in allcaps?

That's the irony. You indulge in a paranoid fantasy about paranoid fantasies, describing your own imagination as "just stupid", thereby becoming one of the "crazy people" who make a problem out of nothing.

Didn't actually read the article because these just infuriate me with people complaining about stuff that is extremely stupid.

A)Writers who are women that don't play videogames won't write about shit that doesn't interest them.
B)If you think there's a huge problem, why not start your own website and start publishing it yourself you whiny little babies.

That's got absolutely nothing to do with the article. Even the blurb tells you that this is a woman writing on a video game website.

It's obvious by the numbers that you idiots have stopped playing and buying, so we'll now remove the lootboxes and fix the game so it plays as it was originally intended and use this fix as a PR stunt to draw in the players who haven't bought the game yet."

Fuck you. Anyone with an IQ above 85 read exactly that.

Well, anyone with an IQ over 85 (that would be fine folks like moi ) did not buy the game in the first place but either decided to give it a full pass or wait for the GOTY (which is yet to be released and I'll only grab it when it's <$10).

I didn't buy the game either, therefore your IQ is the same as mine.
But I said that this was a good thing, therefore my IQ is under 85.
Ergo, your IQ is under 85. You dumbass.

For the record, I meant a good thing for this game in isolation; I felt the wider, cynical reasons went without saying. I might buy it once these changes go live. I'd like to try the Nemesis system, it sounds like the sort of thing I wanted in Skyrim to make it feel more alive.
