Congratulations Jeff in General

I would hope Jeff wouldn't need our congratulations to keep motivated for making games, but in case it helps...

Let it be known that I appreciate every meticulously placed plate in every peasant's home I've ever broken into, and I still steal them even though they are now unsellable.

I went to my parent's house over the weekend. They were expecting me, yet all that was waiting for me when I arrived was a note from my mother saying "out shopping, fresh lunchmeat in the fridge." Can you believe that? That woman expected me to make my own sandwich!

Anyway, whenever I have a problem like Jeran's, which is to say I get banned from a lot of online communities, I usually just reregister, change my persona completely, befriend them, then when their trust in me is the greatest, reveal my true identity, ensuring they never trust another person again, get banned, and repeat. I may even have a few extra accounts on Spiderweb for this very purpose, you know, just in case.

A great movie, but certainly not old. If you want more dated David Bowie goodness, watch Labyrinth.

It was actually a draw. We were supposed to have liberated the whole thing, but we only got half. And really, we won every other war we started to stop communism except this one and Vietnam. We really do have a decent war record.

That's why I said 'remembered as.' People don't remember LBJ as a civil rights activist or as a brilliant behind the scenes politician. They remember him for Vietnam. People will remember Bush for Iraq.

Bush looked like he would turn out to be another Van Buren before 9/11. Now it looks more like he's going to be remembered as another LBJ. He would probably prefer to be remembered as more of an Eisenhower or Truman. Yeah, that's not gonna happen.

Impeachment: I would never support the impeachment of a sitting United States president. It would make our whole government look weak to the world. I wouldn't mind him answering for his crimes eventually, but I am patient enough to wait until the end of his term. As for Cheney, we can execute him tomorrow for treason for all I care.

2000: To young to vote at that point. I was also too pleased with Clinton's presidency to care who got elected that year. Oh, how foolish we all were.

2004: Kerry was the only Democrat I voted for that year. Also the only candidate I chose that did not win. I foresaw his defeat, so I can't say I was all that disappointed.

Patriot Act: I have a fairly unusual view regarding national security. I believe people should be able to say what they wish about the government, but in turn, the government should be able to tap people's phones and use other extreme measures as deemed necessary. Freedom of expression is a beautiful thing, but it should not be taken for granted.

No Child Left Behind: I'm not familiar with the details of this legislation. However, I have many friends and family working in the education field and they all hate it. That's quite a good enough reason for me to hate it as well.

War in Iraq: Yeah, I supported it at first and then changed my mind. So? I reserve the right to flip-flop if the issues themselves are subject to 'evolve' as this one did. I still think we should keep out troops there, however. I want Iraq to end up as another South Korea (we kept our troops there), not another North Korea (where we pulled out).

Why does everyone always assume I'm evil? Did I not totally save Spiderweb in Episode 3? Sure the only reason I did it was so that I could dominate it myself, but I had its best interest in mind. Under my rule, it would have been far more glorious and prestigious. I asked so little in return, my protection in return for your utter obedience. You should be thankful I am so magnanimous.

But then you wouldn't actually have a choice in the matter. The people in your state would be telling you who to vote for.

Anyone that can read and is able to name the candidates should be allowed to vote. But Tullegolar, what about all the little children who would have their parents telling them who to vote for? I don't really have a problem with families getting extra votes. They have more to gain and lose from the government, plus they are raising future citizens, so I say let them have it.

Please, alcohol kills way more people than firearms each year. As for those gangs not being able to afford illegal guns... didn't I just mention marijuana was the number one cash crop in the US? Those guys are making a killing, pun intended. Your point about buying time to resolve issues is really your only valid point, and I admit it is a good one.

Really, guns should be available to citizens should they ever need to protect themselves from the government. It's the American way.

I always thought gun control was a bit pointless. People who want a gun for illegal activities will get one wether or not it's legal. Only law abiding citizens who want guns would have trouble getting one if control was stricter. Look at how prohibition worked... or rather, how it didn't work. Banning anything really just leads to a rise in organized crime. Marijuana us America's number one cash crop, you know.

Parties encourage unity but it seldom happens. Ford vs. Reagan let Carter win, Carter vs. Edward Kennedy got us Reagan. The loser's supporters usually stay home in spite.
That's not really how it works. The fact that Ford sucked was why Carter won. The fact that Carter sucked was why Reagan won. The democratic nominee will win because Bush sucked. It's called the political pendulum. People get fed up and turn away from the incumbent party after a while. It's been that way for a long time.

And parties do encourage unity, all the time. To go up against the nominee of your party would be a stupid move. You don't really think Obama is foolish enough to believe he would stand a chance going up against Hillary if she becomes the nominee, do you? It would only screw over the party and make people hate him, and he knows this, it's kind of his job to know these things. That's also why Edwards gave up and endorsed Kerry in 2004, and thats why Bush endorsed McCain just recently.

I'm the Emperor. I know these things.

Not necessarily, if both Hillary and Obama run in the general election, despite one of them not recieving the nomination, then the split vote will probably allow McCain to win.
Are you saying if one wins the other might run as an independent? Sorry, but I can assure you that will most definitely not happen. No one has made that mistake since Taft and Roosevelt. Parties are smarter than that now, they encourage unity behind whoever the candidate is because they want to win.
