Christians not violent? What fucking bizarro world is this taking place in?

USA is the most Christian country in the world, and also has the most gun violence/deaths.

Hey and guess what, I've told dead baby jokes before! I guess that makes me as bad as a christian who has bombed a clinic somehow?

If the USA was "the most Christian country in the world", then there would not be no murder at all. Christians are supposed to NOT defend themselves, but to turn the other cheek when being slapped in the face. I know, I know, not very healthy and not typical human behavior. But love and peace are the very center of Christian religion. Therefore, just like socialism, the Christian religion has many great ideas and ideals but is far, far away from the real world and the typcal ape behavior of homo sapiens.

Ah, whatever. As a very lovely and intelligent girl tells me very often: "Enjoy the sunshine, adore every flower - this makes life worth living." Good approach - concentrate on the small things and forget about our world being driven by greed and the lust for power. It works until shit hits the fan right infront of you.

"Christians are supposed to NOT defend themselves, but to turn the other cheek when being slapped in the face."

That is probably the dumbest thing I've read all morning. Luke 22:36-38 for one. Why have a sword if you aren't going to use it to defend yourself? Turning the other cheek is a deescalation response. It is NOT to allow someone to kill your child in front of you and to do nothing to prevent it. Only an idiot would believe Jesus would accept that.

I'd rather see Damien in the White House. Him as PUSA is an even more terrifying thought than The Donald. America - and the world by extension - is so fucked.

Yea, I bet your life is just terrible. Tell us how dismal your life is under the Donald. Be very specific. Income change from Obama to Trump. Cost of living. Investment portfolio. Health. Family health. Disposable income (I assume you have a job). Or, if you don't were you unemployed under Obama and still can't find a job? Let's see how bad Trump has been for YOU. Also, let us know if you own any of the following:

cell phone
PC (well, I guess you have this but who knows you might be in a Korean internet shop for all I know)
air conditioning
a house
an apartment (let us know if you still live with your parents)
a car
2 cars?
how much you spent on entertainment under Obama and now under Trump
are you fat (food is not an issue) or are you starving under Trump?

How horrible is YOUR life? How fucked are YOU?

I bet things are great, or, if you are a mess it is because of your life choices.

But I think the reality is you are doing just great.

What a load of crap. Projecting what Muslims do daily around the world on Christians. Just yesterday Muslims in Egypt mowed down 24 Coptic Christians.

But hey its easier to smear Christians since you know they aren't violent, right?

Exactly. Every killer in the US is a filthy muslim, too, right?

Well, definitely not in Chicago.

That is the mistake the left makes when it comes to the US. We are armed and will fight back. The history of Christianity is using whatever means necessary to protect itself. Just because the Pope kisses feet doesn't mean we all march to the sword.

Imagine if FC was set in northern cali and the point was to destroy antiwhaa losers. Now THAT would have been edgy and a pre-order. The melee attack would have been giving snowflakes with bike locks a wedgie.

Part of the problem (especially out here in California) is that there isn't anyone to hire for those jobs.

No, I don't think that that's really the problem. There isn't anyone to hire for those jobs at the absolute fucking rock-bottom salaries employers are 'willing' to pay.

You up the salary on these jobs, and people will apply for it. Nobody wants to be a steel factory worker, to grab Beamer's example, for 9 bucks an hour (duh). You pay 18 bucks an hour, and watch the applicants line up outside. (numbers are just for example, I don't know what they actually are for steel workers.)

That's the side of the story you never hear in all these documentaries where employers lament on "We just can't hire anybody! We've been looking for years! We HAVE to go to India to find workers!"

Bullshit. Pay a good wage and good benefits, and you'll have fucking thousands of applicants.

You still don't understand simple math. The market dictates the value of labor.

Of course if you offer someone $50K/yr to flip burgers you will have millions of poor/illegal/college grads jumping at the opportunity. But who do you think would be hired? Some poorly educated simpleton or the smartest, most well educated, individual you can find?

Similarly, employers who offer $50K/yr will get individuals who accept 45K/yr, or 40K/yr, or 25K/yr to flip burgers. So, who does the owner hire? Someone who will only accept 50K/yr or someone, same intelligence, who is desperate for a job and will accept 30K/yr?

The market decides the rate. It only breaks when the *government* decides the rate. With a $15/hr wage who do you think the owner will hire? Some uneducated person or the most highly skilled person that will accept $15/hr? You see, the minimum wage actually hurts minorities. If you understood math or the laws of economics you would see that clearly.

The same goes for automation. Why pay even the most highly skilled person you can find, who would accept $15/hr, when you can automate their job for an overall expenditure of $12/hr? If the owner doesn't do that his/her/whatever will do it and drive the humanitarian out of business. The world is not some safe space. It is brutal dog eat dog survival of the smartest reality. (and that even applies to a shit-hole socialist utopia like Venezuela)

Ever wonder why no colleges teach socialist economics? Because socialism has only two laws concerning economics...First - it doesn't work. Ever. The second law is that because of the first law, all socialist countries eventually devolve into...dictatorships (see Venezuela, or, everyone's bastion of all things great about Communism...the cesspool called Cuba).

There are plenty of qualified people who can do those jobs. Both legal and illegal residents across all ethnicity's, handicapped or not. They are not applying for the jobs.

Huh?

They switch to robots because who in their right mind would pay some idiot $15 to flip burgers or move boxes.

Releasing the only 'expansion' raid (10-man, not 20-man) 6+ months after the 'expansion' was released killed the game. A lot of people, including myself, felt seriously ripped off. That is why it is free now. Fairly certain the pop dropped significantly. Game was a lot of fun in its hey-day. Maybe they will release a Rift 2 or something.

Ok, let me get this straight...it is now a MOBA. No base building/management. No unit building. No unit management (except for my hero). There are only 3 lanes per map. My opponent also controls one hero. Is that what this game is or is it basically the last game with base building added back in?

Should have been Eastern Front playing as the Germans, killing commies, and then branch off into the whole 'won't follow orders' to kill civvies/saw what was happening in a concentration camp, arrested for disobeying orders (set aside they would have shot him in the field for that), escape prison, get to the Allies, switch sides, pick up at allied invasion of Italy in 1943.

Hrm, co-op, I wonder if that'd really help the game long term. It'd bring in some people for sure, especially with a sale, but I doubt those people would transition to multiplayer PVP en masse.


No matter what they do, the problem is always going to be people getting utterly obliterated in multiplayer, because of the nature of the game. Relatively fast, vertical with wall running, and then you turn a corner and run into a giant ass mech. People play a couple matches and just uninstall.


^^ This. The campaign was fantastic, best of last year. I tried PVP once and uninstalled. I'm sure it is great but the above post pretty much sums it up.

My experience was that it took less than an hour of playing before I got competent enough to hang with the people I was matched with. Pretty low learning curve compared to a lot of PVP experiences I've had lately.

I should add: Compare Overwatch, which I find to be utterly unfun because of one-sided stompings.

I'll clarify. Given I have the choice of many PVP games to play, plus SP, RPG etc. I didn't even want to spend an hour learning the PVP. I never said it was too much of a hill to get competent, just too much a hill for me to want to continue playing given 100 other choices.

Still trying to access Bethesda.net to redeem my Quake key
