    My brother wants to get the new South Park game, but he's not sure if he'll get the Xbox version or the Steam version. He wants to play the upcoming mods for the steam version.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Well, I'd say that there really isn't a clear definition. Liberals label conservatives discriminatory/elitist fascist, whereas conservatives label liberals as controlling socialist/elitist fascists.

    Two tenets that seem to follow most definitions are nationalism and totalitarianism.

    Nationalism, which could be considered in simplest terms a population that is patriotic, loyal, reverent, to their nation.

    Totalitarianism, which could be considered in simplest terms a state that seeks to control the private and public components of their citizen's lives.

    For instance, conservatives seek to control lives by instituting policy that conserves mores and conventions of the nation. Whereas, liberal seek to control lives by instituting controls over health, environment, and other regulations. Both seek to control the lives of citizens though social mandates, or laws, that define which behaviors are and are not acceptable. Though, it's a matter of degree. Especially since there is so much polarization, both sides are competing for control, thus, we are considered either a democracy or polity. Though a totalitarian state would be controlled by one unified group of elitists.

    In this respect, a single group of elites are not controlling the lives of citizens. There is, perhaps, too much partisanship among elites, and thus, constituents. Which is more chaos, and the opposite of totalitarianism in certain respects. Some would argue a balance of control and freedom is necessary for a stable, yet happy state.

    I ramble, but this is a difficult subject to tackle, it's difficult to separate terms that are loaded with generalizations and connotations. Both sides tend to condemn the other for taking to much control over the lives of people, and disrupting freedom. Thus, each side calls the other fascist, but ultimately, this dynamic, could be considered hyper-polarized, conflicting, and thus less uniform, totalitarian, and nationalistic.

1. Not getting paid as much as I was supposed to because my supervisor screwed up on reading the hours sheet

I was looking forward to Magic the Gathering draft tournament with a friend of mine, then I had to cancel because I didn't paid as much as I was supposed to. I work a $10 an hour job and last week they could only afford six hours for me. Yet I get only $40 this payday today (not including bullmuk income tax [see below]), so can't afford it because I'm not immortal and need

If you see any double posts by me that look exactly alike, I would like to ask that you NOT infract me, because I swear I'm not doing this on purpose.

I don't know if it's the server, the coding of the site, my own internet router, or something else, but something is causing my posts to duplicate on a regular basis. If you see a duplicate post, please just delete it if I haven't done so already.

Thank you.

I like to call it the:

"Psyduck Everything"

Here's how you make it

  • 1-shot whiskey (Crown Royal is the best. If you can't get any, you lose)
  • 1-shot rum (I go with Captain Morgan, but follow your own winds)
  • 1-shot tequila (any kind is fine, tequila tastes like piss anyway, but it's strong. The goal here is to get so drunk you forget you're even alive, not to savor flavors like some hedonist)
  • 1-shot vodka (I have Skyy, but really, go ahead

I'm thinking for a regular thing to do here, I wanna do a let's play of Icewind Dale 2.

The Let's Play will be a screenshot & text let's play, so you don't have to hear anyone's voice. I've always found screenshot let's plays to be more entertaining.

Let me know what you guys think. Icewind Dale 2 is Dungeons & Dragons video game and allows for full-party customization and I think it'll be fun to play the game with character ideas from you guys.

Lock up your daughters
Lock up your wife
Lock up your back door
And run for your life
The man is back in town



Yup, I'm back. I decided since it's now summer, I got nothing better to do than work, play games, and continue being around making your lives miserable.

I left because of too many dipmuks here, then I decided my continued presence here is the biggest "psyduck you" I can give to anyone I hate here. ...
