I never liked Bush on most of his policies, but I did like his attempt at trying to fix the immigration issue. He and several other Republicans are correct – if the Tea Party doesn’t get their heads out of their collective butts, anyone related to the “GOP conservative” cause is going to lose out on every Hispanic vote in the country.

That’s what’s wrong with the Tea Party – they cater to racists, bigots and idiots. There may be sensible people that want to believe the Tea Party can be the grassroots movement that can lift the GOP up out of the hole, but the reality is that they pander to the people with money.

And those people tend to be racists, bigots and idiots.

Heritage Action for America is a load of crap, too. Don’t associate with those morons. They’re about as racist and horrible as you can get without being Nazis.

Into the Dorkness

I’ve read about a dozen different reviews. Some written by Star Trek fans, some written by normal people, and one written by Wil Wheaton – who was part of Star Trek at one point.

My thoughts are this:

Stop trying to find greater meaning in movies and stop trying to nitpick good movies to death. Just enjoy the movie for what it is – a fun romp in the Star Trek world.

SPOILER:
Although I loved it when Spock shouted out Khan’s name instead of Kirk in the old switcheroo. LOL

The PS4 presentation at E3 blew everyone away. They did so by allowing everyone but Kaz Hirai to run the show, and by basically doing the opposite of what Microsoft did with the XBox One.

THE GOOD

  • Does not require an online connection. Unless you want a Plus account and multiplayer.
  • Will allow you trade your old DISK games in, or give them to your friends, etc.
  • The camera is not always on, unlike the Kinect.
  • Price is $100 cheaper than the XBox One ($399).
  • Great game line-up. Destiny and Elder Scrolls win.

THE BAD

  • Cloud-based and streaming gaming. Have we not learned from the first PSN hack?
  • Still going to try to push the Vita on us. I DON’T WANT YOUR GOD DAMN VITA.
  • The UStream button. So now instead of a few unpolished Let’s Play videos, there will be thousands that my friends make. Oh God.
  • Still no backwards compatibility.

But that’s what I got out of the E3 presentation. Sony is trying hard to redeem themselves, and they should after the shitty PS3 debacle. It’s great to be the underdog, because you can then do anything cheaper and more expansive, and look like the God damn king. My question to most people is – are you excited about the PS4 because of what it is, or because it’s not the XBox One? Because if the second answer is part of it, you need to slow the fuck down.

Here’s my advice for future console makers – stop trying to incorporate PC features such as social media into your machines. The PC will always have the edge in that arena, and we don’t use our consoles to send Facebook/Twitter posts. So stop it.

Sony’s got the momentum and the drive, but can they keep it up? Only time will tell.

*And fuck Bungie – they are so good at making gaming drugs.

 

 

Okay, unless you lived under a rock, there’s this story where three women were held captive for ten years in a house in Cincinnati. They were just rescued. So while most news people are talking about their plight and the ladies themselves are trying to sort out their lives, Rush Limbaugh is complaining that they might get double welfare for becoming victims to their captors.

I’m with the group that thinks he’s just yapping controversial bullshit to keep just enough people listening to him in order to stay on the air.

In other good news, Jodi Arias was finally called on her bullshit and found guilty for murder. I don’t think she needs the death penalty, but life in prison sounds rather fitting.

And this picture sums it up nicely:

Some people seem squeamish that the ex-cop turned killer was burned to death in a cabin out in the woods after they tried to – literally – knock the house down on top of him and smoke him out.

Personally, since he burned to death, it was probably easier than trying to kill him with a gun. Several officers tried that and died. I don’t care if it was intentional or whatever, but at least now we don’t have to hear about it for awhile and worry about him killing more people or cops accidentally killing more people or whatver.

It may seem inhumane, but let’s face it – they couldn’t snipe him, or club him, or even rush him.

 

Etch A Epitaph

The guy who invented the Etch A Sketch is dead. RIP

Everyone who has watched Jackie Chan flicks should know this is a top secret ploy for him to infiltrate the government and reveal their corruption from within. SUPERCOP! LOL
