    Haha I'm afraid I'd be biased And it is very complex. I don't like boiling geopolitical conflicts into tl;drs because I'll probably end up butchering it.

    The most immediate events are protests all over Ukraine over the President cancelling a EU trade deal and corruption. President Yanukovych ends up leaving the country, gets impeached in absentia and an interrim government is in power, making some changes which I don't quite remember. Anyways Russia invades the Crimea, and now their parliament have voted to secede from Ukraine and are having a referendum on the 16th about the same issue.

    I'm sure I missed a lot.

    Well I've got mid-term next week, so maybe after that's out of the way.

    Not yet, I'll see if my brother's interested. I heard about the censorship it's getting in Europe. I haven't watched any of the newer episodes recently due to college, so I fear I'll be missing out references/tie-ins from those episodes in the new game.

    Well that's good, because they really tarnish how I view members here.

    I'm kinda surprised that you've friend requested me. I'm not all that well in political debates.

    Hey, sorry it took me so long to answer! I wanted to think on it for a bit. As a whole, I don't object to taxes. Taxes are just another power that the government has, and like any other power, it has the potential to be abused. It's abuse of the power of taxation that I object to. The best way to look at abuse of the power of taxation is to look at it through the prism of no taxation without representation (that tired old phrase we all learned in elementary school haha). If the people running the government aren't properly representing the interests and desires of their constituents, then their collection of taxes is unjust. Because in that case, taxes aren't being collected and used on behalf of the people, but rather in spite of them. That's why I think taxes should be minimized. People know best how to spend their own money, and minimizing taxes minimizes the potential for abuse.

    Another thing to consider is this: you mentioned that taxes are necessary to keep the government running. But less than half of our taxes go towards running the government. Here's a video from Bill Whittle (one of my favorite political guys) where he breaks down the 2011 federal budget. Only about 33.7% of taxes actually paid for running the government in 2011. 5.4% was the interest on the federal debt, and the rest (about 60.9%) was spent on entitlements. Not trying to make a point against entitlements, but seeing the numbers puts it into perspective that the very little of what we pay in taxes actually pays for maintaining the government.

Whelp, it's that time of the year when Magic the Gathering releases another core set as a precursor to another wonderful block for the year. Sadly, even though I collected 2014 core set, I completely blew over the Theros Block, but this time around I'll try to get into the new block Khans of Tarkir. But for now, 2015 Core Set is out, so here's my review of the set.

NOTE: I'm judging the cards based on Standard.

Okay, I was going to stay away from PC for a long time, but I've decided to come back because some people were pissing me off with their posts and I just HAD to come back and say my piece. I probably won't post as often as I used to for a while, but I've decided to come back. Yeah, short break, I know.

Next time I just won't even bother with a goodbye message. If I'm gone, I won't say it, you'll just notice.

Yup, I'm leaving PC. Don't know how long and if anyone here hates me, then you'll be happy to know probably for good.

I don't feel like I click with most of the people here. I'm not going make a big old song and dance about it, just this message.

So long and thanks for all the fish.
