The downfall of the sciences in America is that there are fewer and fewer real families promoting good behaviour and solid academic studies.The attention span just isn't there amongst many of the up and coming generations. They want it done for them and they want it now!
I haven't espoused any hateful point of view, nor have i dissuaged any particular race, creed, or kind of any sort. If expressing concern over the well being, and future of my own race is frowned upon, that only goes to show the extent of the damage. Why is that a bad thing? I see other races literally commandeering the airwaves and spewing such views forth 24/7. WHats disappointing about what i said? Honesty is my only excuse...
I didn't deny the holocaust, i did however question the actual intent/statistics claimed etc. That isn't racist. You know there is another genocide going on as we speak, only it isn't quite as obvious as the one that the Nazi's were purported to have attempted. It happens everyday and as long as it is a white nation it's happening in it is completely ignored. It's called "diversity". You would be shocked to see what happens if it is attempted in any other type of nation. I wonder why that is.
I don't think following Martin could be considered "stalking". Stalking requires repeated offenses of certain behaviour patterns not present in this scenario.Honestly, ask yourself, if say the cops had teleported to the scene and Martin claimed he was being "stalked"..by who? Someone who has never seen him before and has never seen him before?
You can't retreat if you are pinned to the ground being beaten in the face. I honestly don't know what happened prior to that, but eyewitnesses place Martin on top of Zimmerman doing just that. Regardless of what transpired Martin is obviously the one who escalated the violence wether he intitiated it or not.
I have been in this situation when i was in my teens many times. Every time my response was to book and as fast as possible. The last thing i would have ever done is confront a random wierdo on the street. I kid you not this situation came up alot.
Well before stories were changed,witnesses placed Martin on top of Zimmerman pounding his face in. Sounds like a good reason to shoot to me. Nothing anybody can say will convince me that Martin couldn't have possibly escaped from Zimmerman, if he was even accosted by him.
Interesting. Seems we all have differing opinions on what exactly happened that night. Regardless, i haven't heard any account from any witness saying that Zim chased Martin down. Considering the size and shape of the guy i find the assertion laughable.
This is an unlawful prosecution in the first place. Zimmerman is overcharged, and only a group of lunatics would convict him of anything.How did they go from not having enough evidence to charge him at all, to charging him with second degree murder anyway?
When i am not on a budget, Newcastle Brown Ale is my absolute favorite. On a budget it's Natural Light. Anything that is dark, with lot's of alchohol in it deserves honorable mention.
Although i have seen mention of the fact that he played WoW in a few articles, i never once saw it implied that it in any way motivated him or was connected to the killings.
Guns in fantasy should kind of suck. Percussion and flintlock weapons were not very accurate, short range and took forever to reload. You would actually have to make them ridiculously better in game to justify their use. Cartidge weapons on the other hand would rock socks but they are only believable in post apocalyptic or alternate reality type settings.
They happened to be fighting a war at the time. If the only thing they had to do was kill Jews, then certainly i would concede that it was possible. But fighting off the other mass murderer Stalin, as well as the rest of the Allied powers, maybe not so much. The Red Army did rape pillage and burn its way all the way to Berlin. I rarely if ever see anybody mention that, or seem to care.
The prequels were so terrible. That frog was probably one of the main reasons, that and the stilted acting and terrible plotlines. The hideous attempt at serious "romance". Star Wars was much better when Lucas wasn't allowed to both produce and direct. They had some good action scenes. But putting a character like Jar-Jar in every film and possibly the collest villain ever in only one of them for like 3 minutes was just painfully bad.
Where in the bible does it say that exactly? I missed that on my read through.
We have a much larger, more dynamic population than the Norwegians. I also doubt there are millions of illegal firearms flooding the streets of Norway. Our judicial sysytem for the most part is fine. It is other aspects of our society where we are deficient. I haven't heard much about this case, and the only place i heard about the gaming connection was on Blizzard forums and here. Don't think it is much of a witch hunt.
I personally don't care what it says on our money, and the pledge of Allegiance could end with "And also undying allegiance to Mickey Mouse" and i wouldn't care. If things like that are really on your radar as important social issues...then i would strongly urge you to focus your attention elsewhere, to something that is not completely meaningless. I hate to tell people this but there will be Christian references and influences in our society and in almost every corner of the world until the very last day of human history. There is more than enough seperation of Church and state, only the most anal of attention seeking atheist organisations crusade to have any and all reference to God removed from the public eye. Personally i think it is a giant waste of taxpayer money dealing with such lawsuits and the people that file them should be prosecuted for filing frivolous lawsuits.
I have seen many reports of Christians being murdered in large numbers in Egypt and other places where the so called "Arab Spring" is taking place with the consent and most likely the funding and direct help of the United States government. Christians are openly maligned by "comedians" like the hateful Bill Maher and popular media sources like Yahoo.com. This all takes place with zero consequence and open support of the popular media. I seriously doubt anybody could take an openly anti-gay stance within the popular media or anywhere else without incurring some kind of serious consequence. The vocal minority has instilled it's own fascist control over the "tyranny of the majority". So yes, i am firmly in the belief that homosexuals and their agenda has already overtaken the popular media and are beyond reproach, be it by Christians or any other group. It is Christians, if anybody, who are under attack and being persecuted here in the United States and the World at large.
In alot of Muslim countries, gays are slain with impunity. Let's make sure we hate on the Christians who might look down on their sexual practices and lifestyle, and not the religion who bashes in their heads with rocks....
If Hollywood caught fire and sank into the earth, it would be none too soon. Overpaid, pompous celebrity royalty can all hang as far as i am concerned. They live in a different country under a different set of rules and people worship them for it.
Crossbow Mastery isn't very well balanced in my opinion. It sounds ridiculouly overpowered, especially when combined with the Great Crossbow.
I thought they were the two worst movies in fantasy history. B-movie quality wouldn't even describe them. SCHLOCK.

No, as a matter of fact the Book Of Nine Swords base classes were far more balanced than some of the 3.5 core classes. I doubt if you would experience any problems with them over shadowing your Pathfinder pc's. Very flavorful and interesting classes as well imho. Try it at the very least i think you will like it.....
He said "penal" huh uhhh huhhhuuh.
They have a group of asshats over on the WOTC boards who call themselves the 4th Edition Avengers. They ratpack anyone who says anything at all negative about 4th edition. Just picture CWM on crack...and with a whole slew of clones. CWM is actually a reasonable guy compared to those guys however...The mods over there are pretty lax. The place is a zoo. It certainly isn't advertising the new edition very well.
I vote that only women be allowed to be catholic priests from now on...
I don't like the idea of religous groups recieving government funds either. But then again i like Corporations recieving them even less. Airlines, defense contractors, drug companies all have huge untold ,untallied amounts of money funneled to them while the public is left to spin in the wind should trouble befall them......i would rather a large religous group get money than a bunch of ass vampires like Halliburton...
