Lame. It was a quality edit, condensed it down to being fast-paced without distorting the points being made.

Oh well, here's the original.

:D That is just embarrassing. The one phrase she repeats too many times to count is "So what you're saying is..." as if he's somehow coding what he's saying and it's necessary for her to decrypt his words so that the peabrained viewer can understand what's being said. I've never heard of this guy before, so clearly I have no favoritism for him, and I was never once unclear about any points he made. On the other hand, I got the clear impression that she was trying her damnedest to make him sound like a sexist insane shithead.

On a side note fortunately there's been no discussion about the government shutdown.  :dohdohdoh:

I'm back in brevard soon, feb 1st.

As for the shutdown I just thought the discussion was beneath us. The media even had a countdown like a meteor is about to hit or something. I can sympathize with some of the right's points but McConnell knew the vote wasn't going to pass by a long shot yet he proposed it fruitlessly. All the while the media is reporting a finger pointing blame game: trump's fault, republicans fault, or democrats fault. People buy these separate narratives hook line and sinker and take passionate stances on it.  :eek:

I found all the finger pointing stupid.  Everyone in DC has at least partial blame.
I understand that the Dems want to get DACA worked on, but shutting down the Government over illegals was not a smart move IMO.

Post something when you get down here, maybe we can actually meet up this time.

The government isn't "shut down". We're still paying taxes and they're still there to collect them with a smile. All is well, friends!

The purple-haired "Communist Utopia" girl* looks young. Wonder if that level of indoctrination is coming from parents, teachers, or tumblr at that age.

I work for the Government.

When I was playing Q2, I felt obligated to give free frags to american players since all you guys support me.

When I gave free frags to foreign players, I considered that foreign aid.

If I did not feel this way, I may have never been fragged  :biggungrin:

Yeah, and what concerns me most about this type of empty-headed directionless slogan chanting "protesting" is that... I view all those people as brainless twerps with nothing better to do than complain about shit that they either don't understand or it doesn't effect them. And it's pretty clear that if they don't already, at some point it will become commonplace for the government to consider ALL protests as equally brainless and idiotic and worthless as this one. So if the day comes when a group of people with a firm platform and a firm grasp of the issue they are upset about attempts to protest, they're gonna get completely ignored and shrugged off as being just another gaggle of wannabe-hippy idiots with cardboard signs.

And what have I always said? The one thing government recognizes and respects is VIOLENCE. Eventually little meaningless "protests" like this won't happen anymore because it'll begin to be the new normal to simply riot and tear shit up and beat the shit out of people for your message.

On one hand, I'd like to beat the fuck out of a long list of people. On the other hand, maybe I'm on some other peoples shit lists too, and I'd much rather just live in peace and be left the fuck alone.
