Mandatory volunteer work is silly- it isn't volunteering, it's just mandatory WORK. Nobody's volunteering for a damn thing. I have no idea why they dress it up the way they do...
My genitals are blaming Europe
Still a better love story than twilight
This is an awesome piece of work- how long did it take you?
Believe it or not, a majority of voting age Americans are a lot more moderate than our parties and media give them credit for- this accounts for (very roughly) 40-60% of all US voters- Our problem is that these voters aren't stupid, fat, or lazy- they just feel like their vote doesn't matter. They're so damn cynical of "the system" that they feel as if their one, educated vote doesn't mean sh*t- and the irony behind this is that these people- this smart demographic of people- (a truly silent majority) isn't having it's voice heard.
Moral of the story: Vote- Vote federal, vote state, vote city, and vote when we don't even have any polls- JUST DON'T STOP VOTING, because if anything is killing our democracy, it isn't the uneducated, it's the cynical and the apathetic.
And Dann, this isn't our first government shut down, and riots are NEVER a good way to protest (in our culture)
7 is missing in action- he'll be back soon.
Son, you're just going to have to untwist your tits and wait patiently.
We're far from fascism
NK will take a while- we don't have any voice actors
Yes, the US has it's problems, but jesus f*ck guys, there are so many nations out there that are WAY worse than us- we happen to have one of the best systems of government EVER created- we literally pioneered the modern republic, and as it may not be as fast or efficient as it's parliamentary cousins, it's got a knack for overcoming obstacles and representing the will of the people- as the government develops, so do we.
The one unique attribute that the US government brings to the table is fundamental change- instead of a government simply telling people what to do and how to do it, the American republic requires the people to collectively change for the better before they're told to do what is right for the sake of being 'good'- it may seem slower, more complex, clunky, and goddamn ugly, but it's a lot healthier for a society in the long run.
Point is it's gone through worse in the past, and it'll sure as hell go through worse in the future.
That's not likely- our government really does reflect a lot of our people here (and throughout the world for that matter)
In the words of George Carlin, "Garbage in, garbage out."
The US is unlikely to becoming a nazi state- we're becoming too soft for that
In the US it's because our labor market is undermined by china- and I guess to a degree consumer idiocy.
I still believe it's safe to say that those truly responsible are the business men who know exactly what you want, and then coaxing you into thinking you got just that- it's sickening, sure, but there aren't many better alternatives to sustaining our economy given the current situation...
Trust me, if there was a way I could get everything made in Germany, I'd be on it like a motherf*cker... oh yea.... the internet
Why is this even a question? OF COURSE
Just because someone has a learning disability or impairment doesn't mean they don't have a right to live and exist- We live in a civilized society, the fact that someone needs additional help in life is better a reason than any to do just that.
If there's one thing I know for sure, it's that underestimating anyone's capacity to be 'human' is the surest path to losing yours.
Not really, no. The DICE model is really crap, and 7 doesn't enjoy working with it...
Thanks for the support ^^
This is an airsoft rifle I use as a prop (and I've gone to a few games with it).
I bang on it with blunt objects and sand the sh*t out of this poor thing so I can use it as a reference for texture art.
Still shoots great though. I've gotten kills at ~60 yards with this gun. Unfortunately the iron sights are coming loose because I adjust them too much.
Cool camo, but too much noise
Erikmovesmetal on battlelog. I'll see you there!
I'm enjoying it as wll so far, but I'm going to wait some before I buy.
On a side note EA got a new CEO.
Na, photos used here- I don't have my tablet yet
A shift of power is likely, but still unfavorable. If the US falls out, there are two other ways this will go down.
China becoming chummy with Assad, undermining him, and becoming a regional power, OR
Russia becoming chummy with Assad, undermining him, and becoming a regional power
-China and Russia will not 'share' the middle east simply because they're part of a treaty organization- one day their interests will once again become your conflict.
The only way the middle east will be 'free' to practice their politics and religions without outside influence is if it collectively transcends a lot of the ethnic and secular tension that's built up over so long (mostly as a result of the US/USSR during the cold war)- unfortunately this does not seem likely.
Assad may be a good leader now, but he's self centered. He hasn't faced mortality- this is very problematic- His successor can very easily turn his power against Assad's former supporters similarly to how Lenin's leadership gave way to Stalin's brutality, as a result, Syria (and much of the middle east) could be crippled and fall even further if Assad were to suddenly and unexpectedly die. This kind of thing has happened and will continue so long as leadership is disconnected from one's vitality and humanity.
tl;dr- sh*ts still f*cked in the middle east, and it always will be until some REAL leaders come to power and people are inspired out of one's aspiration to be good rather than mere brute strength and good PR.
I think the human race is growing out of 'culture'
The production has raised because
1: The demand+market for opium has increased
2: The Taliban use drug money to buy weapons
It looks like a helicopter.
Don't sweat it LeMis
