Iron gall ink (the ink that bonded so well to parchment that we still have texts older than 1000 years that are still perfect) required technique to prepare properly, but still was fairly cheap to produce... Only spurious "gold rush economics" justify a single vial of it costing more than a year's of a farmer's revenue.
That's why I don't tell people to stay or be brave.
My Great Uncle was Jewish when his family immigrated to the USA from Germany.
I can't and won't blame people for fear. I can't and won't blame them for getting to safety when they can. Maybe their fears will be for nothing. But I understand not taking the chance when we have the history we have not only in the world but in the USA too.
Even if their lives aren't threatened (and I wish that was less likely than it is), the desire to not going back to being the target of gross discrimination (instead of the "soft" discrimination of today) is enough to understand trying to get somewhere where the poem on Lady Liberty's tablet is still true.
What if I don't want to continue fighting? What if I'm tired of getting my ass handed to me? What if I don't really want to be a part of a world that doesn't want me here? This has been a struggle for nearly 40 years for me. It's tiring. I'm so close to being done.
In the military we go on ruck marches. "Full kit" 12 miles plus affairs.
We stop for breaks occasionally of course. When we do no more than half the unit breaks at a time, the rest pull security. Then we trade places.
So take a break Bob. You've earned it. Just be you. All of you including Cindy. We got your six. And when you are recovered we'll keep moving. No Soldier left behind.
Don't think that just because you got your butt kick that we think less of you. You can do everything right and still lose sometimes. That doesn't make your efforts any less and should not diminish the pride you take in doing the right thing to the best of your ability.
Rest, recover and do so knowing people have your back
People stay safe and know you aren't alone.

Mark Kirk literally tweeted Duckworth didn't stand up for Illinois back in March. He can get bent at that point.
See here's my problem: you have claimed you saw something pointing to her doing criminal activities and that she needs to be held responsible and you knew this because you saw the hearings, and because of this the rest of us obviously needed to go watch the hearings because then we would know what you are talking about.
What you actually meant is you think maybe there is something there because you caught a few clips of the hearings and you haven't actually paid attention at all to what has been going on with the Benghazi hearings.
So basically while your end premise has some merit (that people should be treated the same before the law regardless of status) you look less than honest because in ignorance (I'm assuming) you are ignoring how she has not been treated the same and those "investigating" (a term I use very loosely for these hearings) the situation have actually committed the crime you think she may have committed.
In fact those in the professional know have stated repeatedly that at most this is an administrative situation to clean up due to carelessness and that no crime was actually committed.
But somehow with a few clips you saw you know better. That's stick in my craw more than a bit, because I have been paying attention from the beginning and everything you think you are actually bringing up is old crap that has already been cleared. You are fouling the air with recycled nonsense.

Well there it is. I can't even fathom how he can call want he has done working with President Obama. That's shake my head level nuts. Especially considering how democrats were running from their successes in the midterms, and now Issa wants to be all chummy? WoW.
Set, I'm not excusing anyone ever doing that stuff. I would consider them all on the same level.
Which is why you are just as vocally chasing downn Trey Gowdy, and Darrel Issa right?
After all you were obviously paying attention so you are aware they both actually released information publically instead of had some after the fact inadvertent possible spillage?
And you are just as vehement in chasing down the AOL account of Powel (that he admitted was for avoiding public scrutiny) and the RNC servers the Bush administration used right?
Also Hillary didn't lose her ability to practice law due to corruption.
She lost it because she didn't keep up the maintenance needed to do so.
Bill Clinton was temporarily suspended but he can be reinstated now if he wanted to be.
Most lawyers that are elected president let their license lapse while in office.
Ah, I know what happened now; in his attack and depth over Trump's flaws his first paragraph manages to be overlooked.
I would suggest he should have ended with a paragraph along the lines of "And this is why it's important for you to come out and vote for us!"
The complete focus on Trump throws off the focus on his own campaign.
Though the response would have better optics if it was coming out of Weld instead of the communication office but I guess that's the point of a communication office.
Could be argued as him trying to walk it back, but I kind of agree. It's not clear to me why a third party candidate making a strong attack on one of the major party candidates without mentioning the other should be considered a concession and an endorsement in the first place.
But the question is then who does he suggest supporting? I doubt he's a fan of Jill Stein, and I can't see him pushing to support Trump now, as there is no profit in it for him or the Libertarian party especially if they are trying to get away from the impressions of the Libertarians being the white college male's party such then endorsing Trump would not be the way to go.
So again I'm trying to puzzle out:
However this is level of bizarre I have come to expect from the Libertarian party.
Yeah beyond the concession there is a lot of room for interpretation, which is why I didn't comment on that part.
It just seemed really odd to me that they stopped this close to 5%.
To my thinking the only reason to do that is to screw the Libertarian party out of major party status.

Technically in Pathfinder neither do paladins or clerics, though in Golarion all clerics have a deity.
[saracasm]Nope, can't move. Therefore as the world spins and moves he stays in place as the galaxy continues moving leaving him for a death in space. Other people can't lift him up and move him. He's immune to being swallowed since that would be movement and so on.[/sarcasm]
Also the RNC who ran servers for the White House and destroyed the evidence rather than turn it over to Congress as required by law.
But I'm noticing a distinct lack of calls for Gowdy and Issa who both did actually release material to go to jail as well.

He kind of did in part. But he loaned his campaign the money at first. It was only when donors had a fit about it that he supposedly forgave those loans to himself, though last I checked he hadn't actually filed the paperwork to forgive them, he simply said he had/would.
Yeah... unless O'Keefe releases all of the unedited film I have no reason to even watch the video.
Quite frankly as a source of information he is shot. Nothing he has produced has been even close to what actually happens once the unedited paperwork is released.
Basically he is bad and if he's your source then you should feel bad too.
Going back to an earlier conversation (because I was unavailable): I think that both libertarianism and communism is both are formed from a virtue.
Communism from altruism/generosity and libertarianism from Honesty/integrity.
And honestly this is why they both fail in practice so far, they don't address their associated vice; communism and sloth and libertarianism and greed.
Capitalism works because at it's core it is based on vice, so appeals to the lowest common denominator. This also allows us to dress it up over time to conform to societal tolerances.
It always seemed to me confusion is more or less the normal state of humanity.
I honestly don't think there is one way you are supposed to feel. I understand if that provides little comfort up front but remember that means what you are feeling isn't nessecarily wrong. If you need the feelings to change that's understandable too.
I try to always remember people aren't who I last met. We change everyday, heck every minute as our bodies and minds are in constant flux. So if you are male today and not tomorrow but are again on Wednesday that is okay. The more important part is to deal with the stress that puts on your mind and body.

Money, and that worries me even more for the game being worthwhile.
...how much more rope is Trump going to call for to hang himself? That was quite a boneheaded step for him--the easiest thing for Hillary to do to counter that would be to agree to it, and insist that he do the same.
I think he's trying to get enough rope to touch the ground instead of hanging.
The problem being is he doesn't realize just how long of a drop it is going to be.
Why do I get more interesting info about politics out of gaming forums then the news?
Not to be rude or harsh, but because you need to diversify where you get your news from and how to do research on topics you hear about?
I like using the AP website and checking the raw news. 90% of news media is based off of AP reports so you get closer to the source that way.
BBC is another main source site as they also still have a world wide reporting netword; NPR is a good third.
Next you want a good aggregation site (strangely I like Fark.com) and several professional industry level news services.
Double check ownerships and track media corporation relationships (for example clearwater and iheart radio are huge and diverse in the stations they own and a bit chummy with each other).

And as you can plainly see being willing only matters to spells that require a willing target. Voluntarily foregoing a save throw is not the same as being a willing target.
So for aiming a spell some spells require a willing target and for that unconscious creatures count as willing.
Voluntarily giving up a save throw is a voluntary choice that can be made (and typically is for spells requiring willing targets) but willingly accepting a spell and voluntarily failing a save throw is not the same as being a willing target for a spell that requires such.
In other news, Trump is now trying to tell the people of Nevada how to pronounce their state's name.
Which explains why Nevada went blue in the polls recently.

WWhat would be worse is if Pence does significantly better than Trump did then Trump might shoot him in the foot for making Trump look bad. I could see Trump shooting off at the mouth because his second fiddle guy out plays him.
When this election is over if he doesn't win watching his campaign staff turn vulture for the money and fame/notoriety is going to be interesting.
