    This started because according to Video Game Journos (think about that term), there weren't enough stronk women in video games. There weren't enough minorities or *****s. Nobody was bitching before, and plenty of homosexuals and women have worked in the industry in all it's 50 years. In other words, the nerd culture was too... masculine, is their argument. Patriarchal. Seriously. So who cried wolf? Then to top it off, you actually have even more mainstream media blaming nerds for misogyny in the #gamergate years, which according to their narrative lead to the rise of Trump. The Left have been blaming basement dweller charicatures for their oppression, far longer than the 13 Russian trolls.

    I can't believe he'll be remembered as a war hero. Or a political maverick. In a way, Trump made the doucher a legend. *shudders*

    What's telling is Eastern European and Japanese game studios don't understand the tide of social justice. Or maybe they do and they just aren't participating like American and other Euros do.

    So all you have to do in order to defeat this is vary your grip while doing this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iV2ViNJFZC8 Or you could just borrow someone else's phone. Or use a one-time "burner." In other words: this won't do a damn thing to catch "terrorsts" or crooks. But it certainly might be useful in compiling even more extensive dossiers on "normal" people who don't have anything to worry about because they haven't done anything wrong ...

    I thought everything was awesome again? We should blame the entire group for "being financially irresponsible" during the Great Recession that STILL has not ended, while simultaneously saying that it has.

    The whole point of the article is to say that "saving money is hard". For 40% of Americans, saving money is impossible because the cost of everything continues to go up and low wages do not. Next, look at where the blame is pointed. A lot of people will blame people like Angela for not saving "enough" and try to say she is fully responsible for her own predicament. Not you or me, but there are a LOT of people out there who will blame victims of circumstance. Angela's predicament, even if she did save, is caused by drug companies charging $40,000 for a single drug, which that same drug in Canada costs $40 bucks and NONE of that money went to research. Link to that article here. We should prepare as best as we can, but there are limits to how much we can prepare. Insurance is supposed to help for situations like this, but look at the cost of both insurance and health care. You pay insurance but insurance has a bad habit of trying to not pay ANY bills at all. For Angela's situation, how much ability would her husband have to try to fight insurance companies in court after a stroke? The way insurance companies operate is predatory on those who are not able to defend themselves. If Angela's husband had not been married to Angela, he would be up shit creek without a paddle. Medical Care costs are also thru the roof. The cost of education is through the roof. The cost of living in general is through the roof. Really what is happening is not that the costs are rising, but the value of money is decreasing. The costs increasing are symptomatic of the value of the dollar, and represents exactly why Fiat Currency is a clear and present danger to society. The way that many companies handle the situations is to twist problems to blame victims and get victims to blame themselves in a way that benefits the companies, not individuals. For Angela's situation, again, she would be shown to the world as being responsible for her own problems because "she didn't buy enough insurance", when really its the insurance companies and the cost of health care that profit from Angela's situation. They put her in Checkmate, and no matter what she did or does, her situation falters through no fault of her own. I have a few disagreements with Angela, but overall, I understand that her situation is terrible through no fault of her own. I know for a fact she is the type of person to prepare for herself as best as she can and to the absolute best of her ability. Strokes happen. Her situation should be limited to coping with the situation only from a medical care perspective, but is exacerbated by the financial, time, and stress costs of that medical care to the point where surviving medically could ruin her financially, which leads us right back to square one, the title of this thread. So lets be clear here. Prepare. How does one "prepare"? Do they spend ALL their money on Health Insurance? Maybe the average person is blamed for "living beyond their means" when a single bedroom apartment now costs (here) $1500 a month and the average pay is $10 an hour? Lets blame the victim again for "not getting an education", an education that costs $50,000 and makes $30,000 a year. Can you say Teacher? I knew you could. Can you say that situation is quite normal? To be expected to be in financial dire straights and crushed by overwhelming debt to afford that education that qualifies a person only for low paying jobs? This is a new class of poverty known as "The Educated Poor". Now, take that average person who is $50,000 in debt, earning $30,000 a year, and trying to pay $1500 for a one bedroom apartment? 30k a year only provides 2500 a month BEFORE taxes, and if rent is $1500, that is well above the recommended 25% of income should be spent on housing. Now lets add in the rest of the bills. $1000 a month for health insurance. That number is also pretty average when insurance is not offered by employers. Ooops, that person...

    Keep in mind NK was threatening to cancel anyway, so maybe he thinks canceling the summit before they do preserves his image, or he counts on NK having no other option but to beg for a new summit. So maybe that's his logic. We're never leaving Asia though, including SK and Japan, so what difference does it really make either way?

    Well, humans are mammals; and the legal definition of a human is a human animal. ...But, certainly, Congress should still pass the All People are Angel-cakes and Sweetie-pies Act (hereby to be known as: APASA) that will certainly protect everyone's sensitive feelings and other mushy stuffs.

    The Trump support is very real. Don't listen to some of the idiots in here spreading nonsense and not knowing the dynamics of the game. Trump wins especially if high turnout or comes in a very close second in Iowa. He blows everyone out in NH and SC as of today.

    Wish it were so but reality is reality.
