Dude, that guy listens to Alex Jones unironically, thinking he's the only one aware of what's "really" going on.

Would you like to back up your false claim? Alex Jones is an bellowing idiot, for one.

My prediction is that it won't cease. The divide and confusion will continue - opening history book makes that clear since the U.S. government is in terminal decline. A massive debt ceiling ensures it. More wars will guarantee it.

Good article from a former U.S. Citizen that moved to Iceland: http://www.counterpunch.org/2016/11/08/america-its-over/

Riddle me Descender, because your comment was pretty cute, but one thing is not totally clear to me, are you saying Hillary is not corrupt or evil in your statement. You have to have your head buried really, really far in the sand to believe that.

When Hillary said "We Came, We Saw, He Died" in a perverse use of the phrase, "Veni, Vidi, Vici" towards a Sovereign Leader whom once led one of the more prosperous nations in all of North Africa, and laughed that he was killed by a bayonet up his anus by radicals that would go on to destabilize his country, whom were illegally armed/funded by the West, that was not evil? When she and many other cohorts of the U.S. Empire and NATO used more lies as pretext to bomb Libya, that was not evil? Was it a violation of the U.N. Charter, Geneva Convention, or Nuremberg Principles (hint it was, as have most wars perpetuated by the criminal U.S. Empire). Was it her warm-hearted kindness that convinced her to take political bribes for the Clinton Foundation, from Foreign Actors (Qatar, Saudi Arabia) at the cool tune of 5$ and 25$ million respectively even though she said in emails that Qatar and Saudi Arabia are indeed funding radical terrorism as has been revealed prior?

She is most definitely Cersei Lannister. Or if you would like a Roman equivalent, Augustus. Trump is also a Roman equivalent, I forget which.

Anyways, I don't know that anything I say will sway someone's chosen Emperor, Corrupt Hack, or To Be Coerced Politician of choice. I'm just curious how people don't see the Oligarchs right before their very eyes, how some can be lied to and ask for more. All I know is Hillary is a darling of the Military Industrial Complex when she voted for war in Iraq, voted to continue war in Afghanistan, agreed with the illegal bombing of Libya, agreed with the illegal coup in Ukraine, agreed with her Husband in the 90s for the illegal bombing of Iraq and sanctions in Iraq that starved to death hundreds of thousands of children, and the war in Yugoslavia.

Regarding Assange:

Highly recommended interview with Assange with the Honorable John Pilger: here and also this one (part of excellent War You Don't See Documentary by John Pilger)

- The U.N. has already stated the following regarding Assange, that he is being arbitrarily detained, which is a violation of Human Rights and a gross illegal abuse
- The most likely reason, in my view, for Assange's situation is that the U.S. is likely behind pushing for him to be extradited (of which he will be sent to prison to be tortured by the Empire's Stormtroopers like Chelsea Manning)
- Hillary, in an email, (unconfirmed but I wouldn't put it past her), joked that "Why can't we just drone him" (assassination by Drone or otherwise is illegal, but since both Bush and Obama did it, it sets a precedent, any President will inherit and potentially use the illegal drone assassination program)

Whatever people think of him, I believe the organization he represents has done a great service by truly revealing how corrupt the two parties are in the U.S. The emails alone, which were revealed to have been leaked by insiders in Washington, collusion to undermine the Bernie Sanders campaign with the press (of which btw Debbie Shultz was fired for, but was immediately promised a position with Hillary, because corruption and greasing the wheels is great), further emails also revealed how the DNC spread lies about the Green Party. And when all else failed Blame Russia™.

And the undercover Project Veritas videos, (non-email related) revealed exactly how corrupt the inner working of these parties are and how conspiracies are really committed (specifically the DNC). They also revealed how the parties violate campaigning laws. People that fall for lies frankly shouldn't get to complain if one is too gullible.

When all the nasty secrets leak,
Blame the Russians.

When under covers people peek,
Blame the Russians.

When you can’t hide those mounds of cash
Just point to Russia, Russia bash!

You gotta be tough.
Let me rehash:

An all-purpose card.
Get out of jail fast:

On the borders gin up a clash!
A convenient War at last!

When the chips are down,
A sure-fire trick.

Jump up, shake your fist and bellow “It’s
The Russians!”

News Comments > Origin Bans Myanmar

23. Re: Origin Bans Myanmar Oct 31, 2016, 09:48 Task
 
This is why I've never really been a fan of so called 'sanctions.' In this case, the news topic is someone being prevented to play what they purchase, although not life-threatening. In most other cases I have read over the years, they most often hurt ordinary people (and it's why people refer to it as 'economic terrorism'). It also causes feedback in the world economy. Every since 1997 every sitting U.S. President declared Myanmar sanctions remain in place because Myanmar is a "threat" to U.S. security (yeah, right). This article covers why (with a couple countries as examples) U.S. and E.U. "sanctions" are:

“some of the most complicated and far-reaching sanctions regimes ever imposed.” Detailing a complex system of “unpredictable and time-consuming” financial restrictions and licensing requirements, the report finds that U.S. sanctions are exceptionally harsh “regarding provision of humanitarian aid.”

Saboth wrote on Oct 30, 2016, 20:54:
Things won't improve until people stop focusing on the scary "terrorism" and "foreign policy".

The other things you mentioned are certainly important, but Foreign Policy, or at least the U.S. brand of Imperialistic Foreign Policy creates Blowback, among other things. Inevitably it is intertwined with the other issues - the massive debt for instance from (illegal) war trickles down and causes the civilian population to suffer and diverts stimulus away from the 'real [civilian] economy.' "The Great Illusion" is a good thesis to read on the subject, which simply concludes, "Modern nations can’t enrich themselves by waging war."

So those that have this on Blues, please confirm if they actually worked on joystick compatibility. It was deactivated in beta. They claimed to be "working on it" before release on Twitter.

I don't have one to try but last thing I read was they were still working on it. I haven't seen a patch yet either for anything and I've been playing since Monday. I'm guessing the answer is no.

I'll check later then on updates. No buy from me though if I can't use my joystick

If you're raging, I'd suggest playing the class with TNT and Mines and defend area, preferably with buildings. Lay down mines on most traveled areas that vehicles use. You can do the same with assault and lay down trip mines strategically in the doorways of building s you are defending. That's how I play since I'm not good at 'twitch' FPS anymore.

You mean the film with Gyllenhaal? Yeah, that was good, and way fucked up. Last I read the case is still out on that, apparently some kid sent in a tip to the FBI in recent years claiming their Dad had a Zodiac costume in a closet. Anyways, I imagine Serial Killers unfortunately still exist in any country today - the ones that get away with it simply don't boast or leave clues.

My sequel guess was right. Now let's see if my other predictions ring true: playing as Marston's son, and the game being 7 Samurai/Magnificent 7 inspired.

My guess, could be wrong though. A sequel in which you play as the son and you recruit a group (in total 7 of you). In other words, it'll be Magnificent 7 inspired, which was itself somewhat inspired by the excellent Akira Kurosawa classic "Shichinin no samurai." Marston's son and friends are sought out after some farmers are being terrorized, and so ya'll make a last stand somewhere in the finale of the game.

Yeah, of course, it was totally the Russians - totally. /sarc Or rather the GOP and DNC like to blame Russia for everything. I lost my homework, Russia did it. The establishment parties are corrupt, Russia did it. The U.S. illegally invades or illegally arms forces (violation of U.N. Charter), Russia's fault. Perhaps people will get what they wish for since people are being foolishly conditioned into war.

Well he's not wrong about the Disney thing at least. Star Wars is going to be pretty major deal for Disney in the next decade or more. More episodes beyond 9 I'm guessing, more movies about major or side characters, etc.
