Virtual Peace Sim Game Based On America's Army

Trespass Re:I Played as the US... (186 comments)

That's a pretty mealy-mouth post. You said so very little, yet used so many words!

I'm pretty sure there were lots of people "who were on the ground on day one" who don't give a rats ass about apologists like you expressing "disappointment" in the deep and widespread corruption that was uncovered during and after the hurricane.

Thank, pal, for your efforts. A few good apples in a rotten barrel do not stand a chance, though. That no officials were ever held accountable is way past horrible, rather it just bolsters my already well-earned cynical position.

Matter of fact, these kinds of incidents have evolved my position on the death penalty. It used to be no, it does not serve as a deterrent. Most violent crime, that's true.

But hey, I think for certain type of white-collar crime, it will serve as an amazing deterrent. Let's see CEO's and politicians and everyone in between continue their corruption unabated while their predecessor's body is still hanging on public display. I think somebody will be like "um, nah, I'm not gonna delete 3 years of white house emails, I wanna live. I quit. Yes, I'll testify."

I'm not sure if I'm joking anymore. Somebody compare the levels of obvious and visible corruption to the number of corruption trials held. Shit, how many years did it take for Ted Stevens to finally get nailed, for doing what he's always done since day one? Funny how something suddenly becomes illegal, even when nothing changes except when somebody comes along who is able to prosecute...nation of laws, my ass.

So basically you're screaming "Off with their heads!" in a shrill, ineffectual voice and trying to justify it as a political position? Neat.

Trespass Re:Bake on a stove? (610 comments)

but that's not as easy as just figuring out which part is the stove.

Meh. This is the Dot; most folks here couldn't find their backsides with a flashlight, both hands and an instruction manual.


Of course they could. They'd just argue that the hole in the center is the sun.

You've been trolled, musical talent is an awesome thing & it's own reward.

No kidding. Much like being able to draw, it can give your sense of self a bit more of crunchy center than if you didn't have it.

Sound Bites of the 1908 Presidential Candidates

Trespass Re:Sounds condescending to modern ears (410 comments)

Care to share some examples of condescending progressives? I always thought the neo-cons were the most condescending. They only talk in sound bites, about pre-approved talking points. It is as if they think the American public are too stupid to understand real discussion about real issues.

What a superb example.

Feds Unwrap $15M For Corporate Energy Reduction

Trespass Re:Dear know-nothing (146 comments)

This is offtopic but screw it, it needs saying. I'm sick of anonymous asshate like the parent poster defending the sociopaths who caused the necessity to save the country.

That money didn't just go away. It went to extremely rich people.

You're not going to solve the problem by rewarding the people who caused the problem in the first place. We need some serious banking regulation in this country, starting with a cap on interest rates at some multiple of the prime. Outlawing golden parachutes.

The government isn't going to bail me out, but you want it to bail out the people who have the means to bail themselves out? Smartassed comments are needed a whole lot more than bailing out uber-rich sociopaths. Ever hear of Will Rogers?

"No bonus" boxes checked.

You could have just screeched 'Off with their heads!' instead of typing all that.
