Someone needs to get kicked in the balls for this online-only crap, preferably, some guy at Activision or Blizzard Entertainment.

Why are they allowed to get away with this BS?

Can't we hold them accountable or something? They need to get bent.

I've installed this game a number of times because I've had had a number of laptops over the years and it takes forever to download all of the crap. If this game didn't have online-only BS, the installation would take only a few minutes.

I've had times when I lost my connection with the server because my connection sucked.

More and more computer games are online-only just because they are worried about pirating. Whatever happened to consumer sovereignty?

Any computer game that is not WoW or any other MMORPG should not be afflicted with this crap. Can you imagine if GM or Ford pulled something like this?

I just want to walk into Activision's office and give them an earful as loud as possible for this BS.

Anthony Brown picked a Jewish guy, so that could be tokenism. It might be more for balance though.

Why is it hard for women to get elected governor?

I wouldn't be surprised if Crist lost because the Florida Democratic Party blew it with the 2010 Gubernatorial Election. I mean, the Republicans held onto the seat even though the nominee was a convicted felon.

So, the tokenism explains why Branstad, Kasich, Beshear, Abercrombie, Malloy, Pence, Scott, etc. all picked their running mates. I think I've noticed the same with the running mates of candidates like Davis (Kansas), Peters (Michigan), Brown (Maryland), Crist (Florida), Cuomo (New York), etc.

All I know about Annette Taddeo is that she ran against Ros-Lehtinen in 2008, was Columbian, and converted to Judaism.

Why can't the governor roster be as diverse as the lieutenant governor roster?

If you look at all of the current lieutenant governors in the United States, you'll notice that there are more women and minorities compared to the governor roster. For example, Minnesota, Iowa, and Rhode Island have female lieutenant governors while they've never had female governors. Why is that? Is the office of lieutenant governor merely a symbolic position and people don't really care who they vote into that office?

Is anyone else going to the Lincoln Day Dinner in Bremerton on March 6th? Secretary of State Kim Wyman and Michael Medved (?) are going to be among the special guests.

Why in the hell would a single person hate Valentines day?  It's people with SO's that should be hating the stupid day.  Especailly dudes with chicks that expect a LOT on the day.  Your only reason so far for hating it is that you didn't get anything and you didn't get a day off.  Why would you expect a day off?  Nobody else gets a day off.  You'd rather sit at home all day and think about how lonely you are?  Yeah, you didn't get anything, but you didn't have to wait inline with the other dudes to spend way too much money on overpriced roses either.

I understand that it reminds you that you're single, but if you're this bitter and single minded in real life as you are here I think I know why you are single.

Uh, did you actually read my post?

I have reasons for hating the holiday aside from not getting anything and not getting a day off. The holiday is such a huge slap to the face and it always seems to fall on a weekday, a work day or a duty day. The last time it fell on a day when I didn't have work, duty, or class was 2008 or 2009.

I can remember the exact date during my 2011-2012 deployment that we crossed the international dateline when we were heading back to the States after deployment because it was the fourteenth, meaning that I had to live the same day twice that year in 2012.

You point out how the silver lining in all of this is that I don't have to pay for overpriced roses (or anything like that). I think I'd prefer to buy some overpriced roses over the predicament that I'm in.

The ironic thing is that I used to like the holiday in elementary school mostly because it was an excuse to eat candy in class.

I think I might cut the Roman Saint Valentine some slack, but the companies that promote the everloving s*** out this holiday should be shot.

Life is so frustrating (especially when the Navy and your chain of command screws you over but it's a rant for another time).

I didn't get any presents or anything for Christmas last year, but at least I got a day off, no, three days off, out of it.

Valentine's Day is just utterly useless. I've found a bunch of reasons for hating it, like not receiving jack diddly squat for said holiday. When I was on my first deployment and we crossed the international dateline when we got back to the United States, guess which day we crossed the international dateline? It was Valentine's Day.

And I can't believe that Valentine's Day has infected your country, Tik. Are there any nations that are free from its lunacy?

I just want to go back in time and kick whoever created this holiday right between the legs.

St. Valentine, from what I remember from a picture book I was given after my First Communion, was a pretty good guy.

Say what you will about Saint Valentine, you probably won't be able to change my mind. The holiday is just basically one big "F*** YOU!".

I'm probably going to eat some chocolate and burn some Valentine's Day cards, which is the equivalent of voting for Ron Paul in the 2012 Presidential Election, which I actually did.

The holiday falls on a Friday which is a workday for me, meaning I can't stay home all day. It could be worse. The holiday could've fallen on a duty day, meaning I would've have to stay at my workplace the entire day.

My next duty day falls on a Monday, which is President's Day, meaning I have to come to work on a holiday. DAMNIT! I'm getting double screwed.

inb4 Valentine's Day bashing.

What's wrong with bashing the holiday?

What are you guys doing for Saint Valentine's Day this year? The holiday actually makes me kind of wish that I was unemployed because it always seems to fall on a workday or one of my duty days and it falls on a Friday this year.

If you are so concerned about whether the death penalty makes terrorists into martyrs, why not advocate using weapons dipped in pig blood (if you really want to go that route)? It will make them think twice about pulling off something like the Boston marathon bombing because anything from a pig is considered unclean. I heard that the British actually used a strategy like this in Afghanistan during the 1800s.
19  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Death Penalty decision imminent for Boston Bomber on: February 05, 2014, 07:29:47 pm
If they execute the Boston marathon bomber, can they NOT bury him in Virginia? Virginia is the birthplace of eight presidents and it would be a sacrilege. Just send him back to Chechnya or wherever his family came from.
20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Death Penalty decision imminent for Boston Bomber on: January 31, 2014, 12:19:13 am
I think one way to execute him AND deter future bombers is to execute him and cremate him if you want to go that route.

It seems like America has become wussified when it comes to dealing with terrorists like him.
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Death Penalty imminent for Boston Bomber on: January 30, 2014, 02:47:28 am
Why can't we just put him in one of those federal prisons like for serious offenders?
22  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Death Penalty imminent for Boston Bomber on: January 29, 2014, 11:03:53 pm
My post got deleted for some reason, but I'm going to reply again to this thread.

Why the hell did Tsarnaev get special treatment? And by special treatment, I mean him being placed in isolation away from other people in the prison system.

The guy is a terrorist and that's the only thing that matters in this topic. If he gets the death penalty, then he had it coming.
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Ted Nugent: Obama is a "Subhuman Mongrel" on: January 25, 2014, 04:24:55 pm
I didn't expect to get called a troll. I'm so sick of people accusing Obama bashers of being racists. I'm so sick of the race card being played whenever Obama gets bashed.

And is it bad to call someone a 'subhuman' even if it's someone like Osama bin Laden, the Taliban members who tried to kill Malala, or one of the bombers in the Boston Marathon bombing?
24  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Has political correctness gone too far (especially during the winter season)? on: January 25, 2014, 12:21:41 am
I am in the military and they don't send memos about the usage of language and words. We just get training sessions about what to say and not to say.

Anyone else remember when New York made it illegal to say the n-word? Am I the only person here who thought it was a waste of taxpayer dollars to pass that legislation? It's just a goddamned six-letter word.
25  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Ted Nugent: Obama is a "Subhuman Mongrel" on: January 25, 2014, 12:17:28 am
Is 'subhuman' a racial slur now?

If you even disagree with a black person, then you're apparently racist in the Obama Age. *rolls eyes*
