The Washington Examiner? Strike two? Laugh

Everyone loves to play the cynic, but it's painfully obvious when you are just repeating headlines and don't understand the topic you are talking about. Obama's previous restrictions on visa's and Trump's current ban on all entry from these countries are not even remotely similar. There is no hypocrisy, just your inability to discern a proper source of news.

You don't have to claim a team when you are making excuses for one side constantly.

*Yawn. It is a 90 day deal. Calm down sally. Whether you like the source or not, they aren't making shit up, the information is out there, that was the first link that put it all together

Are those better sites?

The past 3 presidents have instituted similar bans, Obama did 6-7 times!

And the world didn't burn.....weird.
Big difference between passing a bill through Congress and just issuing an Executive Order. Which is one of the things the GOP constantly railed about against Obama. Apparently, as usual, it is okay for the GOP to do what they complained bitterly about the Ds doing.
Once again, not defending, but the media has created the majority of our problems in this country in the past 15-20 years.
Yeah, people's actions mean nothing. It is only the press reporting those actions that create problems. Obviously. Rolleyes



Obama came out yesterday and said that Trump was doing was unamerican. Apparently was ok when he did it. But i am sure you have more excuses and then blame Bush.

Terrible cycle.


Bats, outside of this discussion you're a smart guy. I'm certain you can see the differences between what Trump is doing and what Obama did.

But, given that your source is Townhall, maybe you want to be misinformed?

Obama did it to one country, and only to those applying for SIVs, not everybody, including those with greencards. Religion had nothing to do with it. Obama's came after the arrest of two Iraqis making plans in Kentucky. Trump's is on a whim with no evidence everywhere. Obama's wasn't blanket and didn't stop visas, and there wasn't a single month that we didn't have Iraqi refugees coming into the US. Not a single month. Obama's process also involved the State Department and the Judicial Department and came with warning, Trump just did this with on his own.

The source doesn't matter, it was one of hundreds on the topic, I just glossed over quick on my phone - and the only thing they are doing is quoting the order as well as linking to other sites reporting on it.....soooo...please enlighten me to the misinformation.

One country?

My point is the volume at which the hypocrisy is being spewed.

I said I am not defending, I am pointing out how ridiculous the Left is handling their reaction when just a couple years ago they were all for the same thing.

Spin it however you want, same or similar, the reaction is ridiculous all things considered. And at the end of the day, my previous comments hold true - they are all the same, they just fly a different banner, childish games that both sides partake in. I have long said the 2 party system is broken. Just look at the FACT that only 2 cabinet members have been "approved" and they flat out said it is PAYBACK.

(And to the previous comments, I never claimed a team - just pointing out facts)

Thoughts on this weekend's travel bans and protests? Will it continue or get thrown out by the higher courts?

I find it far more hilarious people are surprised he is doing what he said he was gonna do. As if honesty in a presidential election is something rare and unfathomable (Well, for Clinton it would have been I guess)
The people who didn't vote for him thought he would do what he said, thus they didn't vote for him. It's actually those that voted for him who thought he was just blowing smoke. People, in general, are gullible.

As for legality, there will be exceptions to that ban, tons of them, but the general gist seems to be legally stable. It is surprising not to see Egypt and Saudi Arabia on that list though, you know, the actual terror states.
Not a single person from the seven states on the "pause" (Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Syria, Sudan, Libya and Yemen) has killed an American on US soil 1975-2015, according to the Cato institute. It's like banning sunscreen imports from Iceland. States NOT on the "pause" (UAE, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia) have killed 3000 Americans on US soil.

Coincidentally Trump has business interests in those latter three, but not in the first seven. I'm sure that's just a coincidence.

and don't forget, once the ban expires, only non-muslims will receive priority refugee status. christians and jews welcome! this is a bald-faced ban on religion.

The past 3 presidents have instituted similar bans, Obama did 6-7 times!

And the world didn't burn.....weird.

Once again, not defending, but the media has created the majority of our problems in this country in the past 15-20 years. They have spun every angle and CREATED news where there was none. They have pitted the country against each other in every form. And there are a ton of sheep that just eat it up.

Go do your homework, the groundwork for this was laid out by Obama....

Where was the uproar when Iraqis couldn't get a Visa for 6 months during the Obama administration?

I am more interested in sales than "players". (is there a diff?)

Even at 50$ a game, $1.2B? I dunno....seems far fetched doesn't it?

Anyone concerned UBI is trying to juggle to much and their products will suffer?

I completed Watch Dogs 2 and actually sat and watched the credits while I was doing something else, and now I see why games are so expensive. That was THE MOST PEOPLE I have ever seen in credits working on a game. To many imho. (esp since it was a sequel and maybe I am being naive to think they re issued a ton of assets)

I think anything from UBI is a wait and see at this point.

I bought AC Syndicate several months back but stopped early because I didn't understand the Assassin/Templar modern day story. So I decided to go through the AC series beginning from AC2 (had played AC1 before). Unfortunately, the controls were so bad for AC2 that I was forced to watch on Youtube. I'm presently on Black Flag. I thought each AC game got progressively better. However, BF is fantastic fun. The pirate ship mechanics is top-notch! Definitely a 9 out of 10.

I have enjoyed the ones I have played. AC1 seemed like a HUGE game. Unity had a lot of tiny stuff to do but the story was good. I didn't think 2 was that bad....kbm or controller?

I am still intending on playing them in order....

Well, on the bright side, in 6 months when the Trump supporters realize that he's done nothing to actually help them; Is a lying, misogynistic, white supremacist, anti-Islam, hate mongering, bigot with an agenda that only helps millionaires, perhaps then we'll all finally be united again as a country and agree to hate him.

Again not defending but I find irony in your comments. Considering you just explained every politician and every President.

man i am LOVING the tweet storms about trump's first executive order increasing the cost on homeowners getting FHA mortgages. especially when they act like they didn't know what they were voting for. it's so good

"he's just kidding around"
"he'll mature as a president" (just like bush)
"at least he's not hillary! EMAILS!"
Those are great, I love the "I used to support you, but..." idiots that are just now figuring out trump is a total lying piece of shit.
The whole nation will be experiencing trumpregrets before the impeachment is final. Can't wait.

Some of those were real for sure, but others felt like sockpuppet Trump voter mockery accounts.

The FHA insurance decrease was only for NEW mortgages closing prior to Jan 27th. It affected a VERY SMALL number of people. (Nov-Feb is the slowest time of the year for home purchases)

Not defending any actions, but people need to chill. He is signing executive orders to halt anything Obama was putting into place. Obama did the same thing. And so did every president before.

People need to relax.

We live in very difficult and strange times. In a period where people shout about injustices and equality, their true message is that of hatred towards the other side.

I hope at some point, the yelling stops, and the fixing begins.....I always come back to this idea that somewhere along the way we are now UNABLE to be ok with someone else's point of view and just take the stance that because you don't agree with me you hate me - so I hate you.

I think MLK Jr is rolling in his grave.

I think I found a euphemism. In the wake of NMS's preorder madness companies are moving away from the word preorder. WWE 2K17 isn't using "preorder". They're using "pre-purchase."

WE2k16 was so bad, not sure how they recover.

.....you know. I tend to learn quickly, and enjoy working on projects on the house. We put in windows, new floors, the main floor had the floor trusses ripped and leveled, roof, siding, etc.

Can see the light at the end of the tunnel on major bathroom renovation (gutted to studs), took the floor up, moved vanity, moved tub, moved toilet. And every time I work with electricity, how simple it is, what it entails........

.....I should have been an electrician. I guess there is still time.

CVS just announced a super cheap generic alternative to EpiPen. Thanks RedEye9.

Awesome. As a family affected by this, I applaud CVS. They need to put people in jail over this shit.

Wells Fargo Profit Falls 5.4% as Mortgage Revenue Declines. Don't forget the rip-off revenue.

Yet the CONSUMER still pays up to 200$ a month for "mortgage insurance" if you used an FHA or didn't secure 20% down at the time of purchase. Not only that, but the portfolio your mortgage sits in is already insured. They MAKE money when you default on your loan.

They need to remove the "to big to fail" garbage, and another instance where execs should be in jail. Barney Frank leading the way.

I saw Cigna will only cover the cost of the generic now, while normally I'd rail against an insurance company dropping coverage of certain medications I think in this case it is more than warranted.

Also interesting about the marijuana report, and it points out what should be obvious, it needs to be removed from Schedule I.

I think the reason it isn't removed is because it isn't a pill. It isn't a known amount of anything. If the drug were a constant, say x number of Y in a given gram, then they would probably remove it. But since it can have all types of levels of THC and other chemicals, depending on how grown and what as ADDED, then they will leave it a S1.

Massive scientific report on marijuana confirms medical benefits.

Massive clickbait headline. Report also outlines negative effects of use, not as highly celebrated.

I picked up Mad Max for $6.79

For that price it's awesome. If you 100% the game it should take you many many hours and it's fun.

I actually recommend not going for 100% completion in Mad Max. The game is extremely formulaic and if you go for 100%, you'll probably get burned out before completing the story missions. It's better to focus on the story missions and dabble in the optional stuff along the way.

yeh this is true

also this game would have been an awesome platform for that mechanic they had in the Lord of Rings game with the Orc Chieftans and all that stuff... its too bad nobody tried to reuse that formula or improve on it, seems like it had some potential

I enjoyed the 100%. The way the game is setup and the layout of the world, it actually works better than other games. And the upgrades do help a ton as you progress. (82 hours to 100% and I screwed around A LOT)
