    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.

    You listen mostly to metal eh (iirc)? Do you ever feel out of touch with a music scene? Like stop listening/downloading for a while and then feel like a hermit when there's this song that everybody knows but you haven't heard.

    omg that california sun must be incredible ;; I was in Mexico, now I'm back home freezing my ass off.

    Vic II is strategy, yeah. It's a spreadsheet game - you lead a country, and all the action happens in population groups which function in their own little economy and it's really complicated XD Actually, it's very interesting... you can explore how countries developed over the 1800's, which is especially important for the US as that century was its ascent to power, at least economically. Last I remember, laissez-faire economics was broken, but with patches and mods you might be able to get away with laissez-fair and not implode your economy? As Germany I started by choosing a party with a state capitalist (cuz I'm the Kaiser) because I was sick of capitalists making not very rational investments, but as the economy grew, I gave them more freedoms because I couldn't handle it out of sheer size

    Anyways. If you're into politics, economic policy, foreign policy and all that it might be up your alley An American empire is fun to build

    Omigod, not sure if I told you this before, but once I made added restrictions to abortions to appease the conservatives without pissing off the liberals too much (I mean, I'm not abolishing it right?) and IT WORKED. Insta popularity, then I pushed through some more important reform

    Why not show no mercy to the religious? I used to do Creationism vs Evolution as equal but... that policy was kind of insulting to the hi-tech and science backed country I'd directed, so I changed it as soon as I could.

    Oh yes. I played them off for years until their numbers dwindled As for the game's political compass, I'm in the socialist + liberal quadrant, mostly around 40 - 60%. I've moved to the economic centre before, but that was to reactivate people's interest in politics.

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. ...
