Freelance at the moment, but it's really slow ever since the economy sh*t the bed. I had to quit my steady job a few months back, for the time being I'm splitting a place with my brother, so I don't have many bills to worry about at the moment. Doing the whole gaming, drinking, and exercise thing myself, actually. I highly recommend it.

I can't really say right now based on actual experience, as my last 360 bit the dust on me 2 years ago, so I went 2 years playing only the retro sh*t I'm most known for kicking. Going without the 360 for that long lead to significant price drops on games, as well as a sh*t ton of new games being released while I was playing old stuff. So I've been picking up games I missed out on on the cheap from ebay, but I haven't gotten to play much of them yet, as I'm trying to finish off Oblivion since it was the last game I was playing before mine bit the dust.

Other than Oblivion, I picked up Skyrim, Arkham City, Dark Souls, Lost Odyssey, and Castlevania : Lords of Shadow.

If you like turn-based RPGs I'd recommend Lost Odyssey, it's so good I played through it 3 times when I owned it the first time. Ninja Gaiden III looks awesome, and II was pretty sick. I also really want to get my hands on Deus Ex : Human Revolution and Red Dead Redemption.

Of course, lots of upcoming release in the next few months look badass, like Resident Evil 6, Forza Motorsport 3, Borderlands 2, Sleeping Dogs, and Halo 4.

Sounds like we're going to be catching up at the same time.

HUNTING

So you're a hunter, huh? There's nothing you love more than stalking silently through the woods with a high-caliber rifle, soaked in deer piss, hoping to attract a large game animal to kill for nourishment, right? Well that's all fine and good except that hunting for food isn't even necessary in modern society, it's a choice. It's the hunter's choice to hunt for food instead of doing what the rest of us do, by driving to the grocery store and buying your meat in nicely sealed, FDA-approved packages.

Having had the benefit of living in vastly populated metropolitan areas up north, as well as scarcely populated towns in the south I can honestly say that no hunter I've ever encountered relied solely on hunting as a means of supplying his family with sustenance. Typically those who hunt do it for one of three reasons : Because it is part of their 'culture', as a means of supplementary nutrition, or because it is sport, which I will cover later on.

The 'culture' argument is absolutely retarded in any debate (on any topic) when the part of the culture you're holding so dearly to no longer has any valid application in a modern society, which hunting does not. The supplementary nutrition argument is also completely invalid because as previously stated - Hunting is a choice, just as eating meat in the first place is a choice. There are plenty of other ways of getting supplementary nutrition that also fit well with your 'culture' such as farming.

SPORT

This is hands down the easiest part of the argument to pick apart because the entire crux of that argument is based upon the idea that killing animals is somehow a rewarding activity for the participant. Those who hunt for sport typically do so for one of two reasons : Heritage, and population control. The heritage argument usually stems from lower-class white males who's family has a rich history of hunting animals for sport, and I can see how perhaps engaging in an activity your family has a long tradition of engaging in could somehow be rewarding, or bring you closer to your 'roots', but again, this is an outdated ideology in a modern, civilized society.

The population control argument is a bit different. These guys like to argue that if there were no hunting, wild deers, boars, and bears would be all over our roads, pissing and sh*tting on our lawns, and turning the entire Country into a real life version of "Animal Planet". While often exaggerated quite a bit, the population control issue is the only real point of the pro-hunting crowd - Animal populations do need to be kept in check.

However, I wouldn't say relying on a bunch of backwoods, idiotic hillbilly drop-outs and factory workers to keep said populations in check is a smart idea. These are, afterall, the same people who drove multiple species to extinction, and continue to drive species closer and closer to the point of no return annually all in the name of 'sport'.

DEFENSE AGAINST TYRANNY

See previous posting.
Arguing that hunting and sport as the same thing, is ridiculous and shows your ignorance of guns. And for your information hunting is regulated that's why there are these things called hunting seasons and hunting permits which are used to keep things in balance. And to characterize hunters as only backwood hillbillies and factory workers shows your bias and ignore the fact that most of hunters out there make a ****load more money than you.

You are ignorantly or purposely ignoring the thousands of gun sports that exist not only in this country but worldwide. Pistols, rifles and shotguns are all used for olympic sport both summer and winter. There's also IDPA, USPSA, IPSC, 3gun, ect,ect,ect which are extremely popular and have millions of members. Gun sports are huge in this country and eclpse hunting by far.

And to whatever your tyranny argument will be or was, there's also this thing called crime which last time I checked is extemelly high specially in places like Chicago, Washing DC and New York city which boast the strictest gun controls laws in the nation.

Did you even read my post? I didn't lump hunting and sport in the same category, I was touching on hunting for food, and then hunting for sport, not sport as in skeet shooting and competitive archery.

Funny that you would label me ignorant and say I was assuming in my characterization of hunters, then turn right around and in the same breath make an ignorant assumption about my income level.

The reason I didn't touch on competitive gun-related sports around the world is because I'm speaking about gun control in America. Derp.

Mexico has basically a third of our population, but more gun homicides. And of course you cannot own any firearm in Mexico for any reason.

You mean the tax cuts that Obama extended? The same ones he wants to extend right now? (well just over 80% of them anyway, revenue wise.)

I think you (perhaps intentionally) left out the most important reason that 47% of households own a gun. Protection.

The heritage argument usually stems from lower-class white males who's family has a rich history of hunting animals for sport
Hunting for sport in this country dates back to English Lords across the pond. And the droves of hunters (of all races) who come to this area every year to drop 100 bucks a day to hunt doves don't exactly fit your description. But I realize you were just trying to be insulting. Again.

The 21 taxes in Obamacare haven't exactly been helpful either. Or maybe stop borrowing 1.4 trillion annually, let small businesses have a crack at some of that.

The private sector has continued to create jobs month after month
At a small fraction of the pace needed to keep up with immigration (about 1 million annually last time I checked) and other new people entering the work force in a growing population (minus retirees and disabled.) Speaking of disabled more people have applied for disability since Obama's been president than total jobs created.

but economic progress has been slowed because the public sector is literally hemorrhaging.
Economic progress (interesting use of words) has little to do with the (mostly parasitic) public sector. State employment is down because most states are forced to balance their budgets; outrageous pensions and falling property values are a bad combination. Federal employment is up.

Quote:
With a congress that's deadset against giving you funds to do ANYTHING (because they've made it their mission to try their best to ensure you're a one term President), how the hell is the President going to create more jobs?
Obama had a filibuster proof congress for his first two years, meaning he didn't need a single republican vote in the House or Senate. Unemployment went from 7.8 to 9.1%.

And this isn't me defending Obama

Yes Obama inherited a mess. But what did he do?

The guy just went on and continued the policies of Bush and even intensified it.

This president blatantly said he doesn't need Congress approval to go to war. Isn't that line of thinking similar to Adolf Hitler and facism.

The economy is shot to pieces and at this rate it will take at least 10 years to recover with very hard consequences. It's even possible that once the collapse hits, we might see a repetition of what happened to the French revolution.

Don't you all ever wonder why the government is stacking 650 million bullets for the POLICE. It's because the government knows the things are inevitably going to go bust,

Romney I think is just a copycat of Obama, or at the very least the puppet of the same establishment which controls both parties.

The biggest threat to a person's freedoms is their own government.

I couldn't remember who said this.
