Bingo, we have a winner! I love the hell out of the game but the story? Deep fried ass, sorry folks but it is. That thing has more loose threads than a sweater woven by a granny with Parkinson's and you can tell they have NO clue WTF the G-Man is supposed to be, who he works for, what he is supposed to do, it was probably thrown in there originally because of the whole X-Files/MIB thing back in the late 90s and then the fans latched on and they didn't know WTF to do with it other than just throw his ass in with zero idea how to wrap the thing up.

Hell I bet if they hired Joss Whedon to write HL3 even he couldn't figure out how to make an ending that actually even made half ass sense, its just too all over the place. Its still a fun as hell game series though, even if the story makes no sense whatsoever.

It doesn't matter how it was passed, Obama ran his entire campaign on Obamacare which the American people chose over the competition.

Of course the fact that the right is so fucking out of touch that they would run Thurston Howell the Third (the 47% bit, talking about how he drove "an ugly car" in HS while neglecting to mention it was a brand new luxury car, and his wife's "We were so poor in college we had to live on our stock dividends!" bit) didn't help matters any, but the one two punch that I think historians will look back on and say "THAT is what sank the republican party, that right there" will be the outright hatred for Latinos displayed by too many of the tea party and the "let 'em die!" cheers at the RNC. I have some serious right wing customers and even they were shocked and appalled by that little outburst.

In any case the people CHOSE and what they chose was Obamacare, every poll shows they are in favor of Obamacare, they voted for the POTUS when his main platform was Obamacare, so by voting 42 fricking times to block Obamacare and now risking having our credit rating shot to shit AGAIN just to make the tea party and their corporate masters happy? frankly shows the current right wing to be downright suicidal. I mean did they learn nothing from 96?

I'm sorry but 15 yard penalty, bullshit on the field. Even the republican leadership said they DO NOT WANT THIS, its the tea party whackos they have ZERO control over that are pulling this. If they had any balls left they would throw out the tea party so that wouldn't get lumped in with them but ever since they became "the rich old white people party" with stands against...well pretty much anything that affects any minority other than the 1%ers? the tea party is the only growth they've seen in years.

But you can't negotiate with someone that says "my way or nothing" and every. single. one. of the tea party has signed on with Grover Norquist and his "no new taxes on the rich EVAR!" pledge and since they know actually giving medical care to the poor would mean the top 1% actually starting to pay taxes again, because part of the plan calls for getting rid of loopholes like "Double Dutch" and "Irish Whip"? They would rather shut the whole thing down, even have the USA default for the first time in history.

Ironically the ONLY thing the tea party whackjobs are willing to spend money on? MORE WAR, as they want to raise the defense budget higher than they even asked for! But of course they are the leeches that make money off the military industrial complex so no surprise they would vote themselves more money while they fuck everybody else, see the "let 'em die!" cheers at the RNC Ron Paul speech to see what kind of douchebaggery you are dealing with.

Read this passage, written in the 1930s by a Marine Corps General, and see if it doesn't sound EXACTLY like the shit we have been doing lately, just change the target and it could have been written last month...

"I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested. During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.â

Folks think this kind of backroom bullshit has been only the last decade or two? try close to a century, probably longer. The blood of the poor paving the road to profit for a handful at the top, this has been going on for a loooong time. I'd say the ONLY difference between then and now? The uber rich have stopped giving a fuck about the kayfabe and even pretending they give a damn about any but the elite, for a perfect example watch that video of the RNC with the "let 'em die!" incident. All those rich cheering the thought of a poor person dying rather than costing them a dime? Perfectly summed up the kind of sociopath scumbags we see at the top.

The problem is that Yahoo just sent out a message to every grey hat, letting them know "if you want anything other than a T-Shirt talk to the metasploit guys" and ya know what? they will. Its not just about the money, its about respect. A t-shirt is the kind of prize you get from some DJ standing on a street corner NOT what you get for saving a company endless bad press and possible millions in pissed off users.

Of course the real bitch isn't just the XSS, its when you mix that with an insecure browser you get a real perfect shitstorm. See my journal for what I labeled the "Yahoo porn bug" a couple years back, if you take Yahoo and ONLY Yahoo, didn't see this with either Gmail nor Live mail, and Firefox which again ONLY FF, not any of the Chromium or Webkit browsers nor Opera nor IE, put them together and what do you get? you get the ability for spammers to be able to spam entire address books without having any real access at all. They do this by using the fact that FF runs at the same permission levels as the user (which is retarded but Moz refuses to fix, Chromium had the ability to run below user permission more than 6 years ago) and with a hidden iFrame and using the FF auto login (or even just a still valid cookie) they could have access to the entire address book without having to break into the account or even send a drop of data back to themselves.

So as I've been saying for a few years now yahoo really needs to get their shit together, its entirely too easy to use Yahoo email addresses for spamming. The same can be said of Moz, I no longer include any gecko based browsers specifically because they refuse to add low rights mode. Bad security practices are bad practices and insulting those that find bugs by giving them a lousy $12.50 t-shirt? They have made sure the next bug found by a grey hat will only be found out by Yahoo when they are getting pwned.

If you would like to learn more try reading up a bit about the East German STASI, in reality they had less than 6% of the population being watched yet when you talked to the populace? They ALL thought they were being watched! And THIS is the reason why you want the populace to know, if you want to lower dissent? if you want to quell public dissension in the ranks? Just make Joe and Jane Public feel that by going to a rally or signing a petition they will suddenly be under the state eye.

BTW Ms Wolf ought to know as they told her flat footed she was on a watchlist and give her shit every time she boards a plane, her crime? Giving a lecture on your constitutional rights. Think about that and then do a little reading, or better yet watch her video lecture on how a free society becomes non free and you will see there IS historical basis for such a suspicion.

It goes back to a study Hillary had done in 09, they were gonna argue that guns should be curtailed in the USA because "narco-terrorists" were using them in crimes. The result...surprise, most of the guns came from the former USSR, where they could get fully auto AK47s and RPGs as cheap as a handgun here. So how to fix a problem where the data doesn't support your position? Tilt the data until it favors your position!

If you look into the facts then you will see WHY and the why is frankly disgusting. This is coming from somebody who is so left it hurts but I can't condone criminal acts because somebody on the left does it, no more than I can tolerate those that said Bush and pals should get away with the lies they told about Iraq. because a handful at the top wanted to push nationwide gun bans they handed the cartels as many American guns as they could on a silver platter, causing countless deaths including an American border agent and if it wouldn't have been exposed I have NO doubt that false flag would have been used to try to ban guns, just as they pushed for more guns bans after the criminal robbed his mother's guns and used them in Sandy Hook.. Holder should be looking at the death penalty for treason and Obama should be investigated, the fact that neither is coming to pass just shows BOTH SIDES are corrupt.

I would also remind you that after the martin shooting there were more than 30 attacks, including one where a 14 year old was SET ON FIRE, where the attackers screamed "kill a whitey for trayvon!"...know how many were charged with a hate crime? Can you guess? If you said ZERO then you are correct, and if you thought that was justice then you should be an admin at HuffPo!

Racism is racism and the kind of political correct bullshit you are spewing is why we have an AG that says, and I quote "Black people can't be racist so they can't commit hate crimes". And THAT is what your refusing to call a spade a spade gets you, protected classes and double standards. Think about that next time you are gonna stand there and say racism is okay.

It is THIS dirty little secret that the advocates of RMS refuse to acknowledge, that he hates anybody making a cent on their software and he has VERY strong communist leanings, see his gushing over Castro and Chavez, where he talks about what "paradise' their kingdoms were...yeah ask those being oppressed what a "paradise" it was RMS.

I mean have you EVER seen him say that doctors, plumbers, CEOs, etc should work for free? Nope ONLY programmers! And the few times that anybody finds a way to actually make money by following RMS' own teachings? He WILL turn against them! For an example when somebody asked him "How are we supposed to pay our bills when our software can be copied by anybody for nothing?" he replied "by selling documentation" well guess what he says when some devs refuse to release their docs under GPL, the ONLY fucking way you can make money selling docs? "Documentation should be free!"

The problem with your theory is thus...the Army, especially the soldiers capable of doing what you describe? Are loyal NOT to the government but to the CONSTITUTION.

The second you order the military against the American people a good half or more will turn against the leadership, look at Libya where you had pilots crashing their aircraft rather than allowed them to be used against the people and soldiers emptying the weapons caches by handing them out to the people. i have known a LOT of soldiers in my time and I can tell you they take the constitution VERY seriously and would see an order to attack the populace as an attack on the constitution and would fight to their last breath against those that would try to destroy it, you can take that to the bank.

This is what makes me worry about all those stories of late of turning F16s into drones along with the Israeli drone tanks and the like, because something like that would allow some mercs like Blackwater to be a hell of a force multiplier, you'd only need a handful trained to use the tech to have them control a fleet or aircraft or division of tanks, seeing as how these drones can fly themselves to and from a target. This would allow those that would want to crush any opposition to take a "relatively" small merc force and turn them into a credible threat overnight, as a merc doesn't give a shit who or what he is fighting for/against as long as the check clears.
