  1. I agree it has opened us up to gross mismanagement. I do have a question though, do you think that if govt steps in and funds to keep a company afloat should go the way of the banks in “owning” that company? Take the airlines for example. Govt gives them a huge bailout to keep them afloat so that we don’t rely on a foreign nation for our flights, which I can understand to an extent. Since every company I know of that gotten bailed out in the last 20 years wasted the money on not “fixing” the company but instead to line the shareholder and boards pockets instead and still having the same problems. Since the airlines are for national security and growth for transporting goods and people, IF they govt couldn’t start a reason to acquire the company (which is the only thing I can think of to not go with the idea) but gave the company tax payer money, do you think that with the history of what happened with the money, that it would be better to just “take over” said company? if the government doesn’t have the right to give money to keep a company afloat, since they do for national security reasons, then should the company be taken over instead? Also do u think that would quickly end govt bailing out said companies if they are to dangerous to sink?
  2. I agree and likewise agree with the education part.
  3. Shoot, just reloading the many times I do for almost every chat with someone makes me understand people’s problem with the loading and speed of vehicle. i guess I’m a bit biased in that with the amount of fun I’m having with this game after not having this amount of enjoyment since I’m guessing shadow runs game came out. The load times aren’t bothering me as much because my annoyance turns to enjoyment as soon as it’s done loading and I’m able to play lol.
  4. With last election, the DNC did prop up Hillary over Bernie and sabotaged and even forced him out. They installed Hillary as the mouth piece. The emails that were leaked showed that and why I think the dems lost a lot of support last election. Pure speculation but seeing how Bernie was running strong and then stepped down for “united front” to win against trump seems like yet again, the DNC propping up who they want. Seems to fishy to me. Like how no one from the Republican Party is running against Trump.
  5. You are correct it was complex reasons but a good chunk of why the natives mainly chose the south was part the main fed govt who forced the trail of tears and part that the souther states had treaties signed that gave the tribes more land, sovereignty of their own nation and so forth. The south was in a position to give them back a good bit of what they had lost if they won. Look at what the north did to the tribes of those that helped them, it wasn’t to far from what they did to the ones that sided with the south. i agree the south was able to dispicable things to slaves since they were viewed as property and not citizens, but then again look at how the north treated the Chinese with the railroads. It was the same perception as in able to kill/maim/separate from families and did the same with the natives as well. North and South treated anyone who wasn’t white as non citizens and less than human. Both sides were dispicable and caused untold travesty BUT because the North won, history dumbed down for the public is that South was the bad guys because of slavery and the North was the good guys as anti slavery when the North was doing just as horrible ****. That’s my main point with this conversation is that both sides were horrible. Hell Lincoln didn’t even care to free the slaves, it was a political move that he would have gladly abandoned if it didn’t drum up the support he was wanting. I complain constantly about the spin in the news when our history we are taught in public schools is basically spin to motivate us to a certain view point just like our news does.
  6. Can anyone explain with the protesting of the police that Biden/Harris is the Democratic nominees? Harris has the history of keeping the jails full for the slave labor and for trying to expand convictions to parents to fill up prisons for more slave labor? Biden is straight up old school and not even a progressive type? how did the Democratic Party give us **** choices when we coulda had the MATH dude or the old socialist? Still woulda been **** but those are more in the flavor that the public is going for. also didn’t they learn with Hillary that forcing who THEY want instead of what the PEOPLE want is what’s gonna get trump re-elected?
  7. Playing wasteland 3 and loving it. The load times are a bit long but so far nothing that annoys me. It’s scratching that fallout/shadow runs itch something fierce
  8. Outta 29000 native Americans that fought in the civil war, less than a thousand fought for the North because of the trail of tears and also because the North were racist against them and turned a lot away, hence also why certain tribes switched sides. The problem of hyping up the south slave is that the federal govt right before the civil war showed that only 3-5% of the whole country owned slaves. You are right that it was the “1%” as we call today that owned them while most did not bc of affordability hence big families for the MOST of the plantation work. BUT the North did the same only with a new wrapper and new game, because the factories that were owned hired people for long hours and paid low low wages to barely survive. The South did the treatment with minorities while the North was woke and instead placed all colors into a slave wage state. Why I say it was economical is that people were more outraged and rightly scared of the difference in class levels between the working man and the rich than about slaves because most people didn’t own them.
  9. Regarding the native Americans, I doubt a lot of the “pc” culture would be as warming and compassionate towards them if they remembered that MOST of the native Americans fought for the confederacy in the civil war. Living near Cherokee, I saw a lot of old timers with rebel flags. While every where else, the civil war was ALL about slaves, whereas down in the south it was always more of a “libertarian” movement in against big govt/business. “The south is gonna rise again” was not a prophecy but a warning that no matter how big ya got, u **** with us, we will **** u right back. The native Americans joined the cause because the big govt/business took away their lands so that the railroads go to help with the second industrial revolution of turning people into wage slaves for peanuts on the assembly line compared to agriculture work in the south. So for minorities, the war was about slavery, to the white man the war was an economic war fighting the industrial revolution, and to the native Americans it was a war to fight against the genocidal govt and retake their land and powers. also the native Americans also owned slaves as well so they weren’t “good” people as well compared to today’s standards. So TLDR, the confederacy were “hero’s/comrades” to the native Americans for standing/fighting/dying along side them. So the next time u see a confederate flag and most likely correct in thinking loser in life and history, then ur also calling the native Americans that as well remember everything isn’t JUST or MAINLY about race, winners write the history.
  10. happy to say my county became a second amendment sanctuary county. First thing in a long time that my politicians did that I agree with in quite a long while.
  11. Instead of abolishing the electoral college, how bout we actually let it go the way it DESIGNED and do away with the winner take all. not only will people’s vote actually count BUT also the best way to get away from a 2 party system by giving them actual choices. Also best way to increase voter turn out as well. instead of abolishing a system and go with one where 4 states decide what the other 46 get, get rid of the “winner take all” instead and watch as rep/dem voting numbers go down and independent/libertarian/socialist/etc voting numbers go up and give an election or 2 and u will have more than the 2 party system WITHOUT any drastic changes and we can keep everything going the way it is now. It’s KISS.
  12. Sadly your right, because I got the info from Fox.....shudders. They’ve spun it in a way to make it seem like he had a great victory but like u said without the amount, who knows if it was a win. I believe his team is now gonna go after more news networks such as nbc and such.
  13. Lol a lawyer criticizing someone on morality. Ahh that’s a good laugh good day today, just found out late that maga hat boy won against CNN’s slander. Was wondering why no news are really talking about it and realized several propaganda stations reported the slander as fact as well. Hopefully maga hat breaks their banks as well.
  14. I forced myself to finish Witcher 3 and after I got passed that slump of being overcrowded with stuff to do, it ended up being in my top 3 rpgs with Morrowind and Fallout New Vegas. Mainly because of story, atmosphere, and graphics. kingmaker I’ve enjoyed but the kingdom **** just killed it for me so I’m trying again but putting the kingdom on auto. baldurs gate I feel is only good now because of combat although if I had played it when it came out, the story woulda been better for me. Now, not so much.
