  1. If you need a laptop

    just noticed this thread. looking for a non-gaming laptop good for media and browsing for less than $600USD shipped. no more. would like dual core, big hdd etc.
  2. Need laptop asap

    Sister needs a laptop. Looking to spend between $500 and $600 USD SHIPPED, no more. don't go over that amount, for real it's all she can spend. I was assuming some sort of thinkpad, but IDK which one. It's not for gaming, just browsing and shit. A big hard drive would be nice. Great support is a big deal, if possible. thanks guys

    I have a side part. It's thick right now and I never style it, but when it's thinned and I work on it: [img]http://s3.amazonaws.com/ths_assets_production/attachment_resources/attachments/119/original/Celebritym_95.jpg[/img] pretty boring, standard side part.
  7. Occupy Wall Street

    [quote name='Mage King' timestamp='1326065511' post='3070798']The nature of the American political system doesn't lend itself to the types of change OWS protesters would like to see. . . . Demands for a single thing like the above tax, or for reinstituting Glass-Steagall won't address the protesters concerns so demanding these specific things is not particularly beneficial.[/quote] How doesn't the nature of the political system lend itself to the type of changes OWS would like to see? I don't even know what you mean by that. How would solving one specific problem that a group has no be beneficial? Wouldn't that mean they have one less specific problem? [quote name='Quack' timestamp='1326065636' post='3070799'] The Occupy Wall Street people are fucking idiots that are taking out their anger incorrectly. [/quote] Great political commentary from you, as usual.

Passing better healthcare is the holy grail of liberal democrats.[/quote] You know, I was going to reply here and say that you're wrong, but in reality you're right in some aspects. It's true that good, efficient healthcare is the ultimate goal -- but facing political reality means accepting that Republicans would never allow a truly good healthcare bill to pass on the first try. The important thing is getting it passed. Getting it passed is all that matters. It needs improvements just like any major piece of legislation -- go look back on Social Security, see how bad that program was when it was first enacted. What we do is improve it over a period of years until we have an effective, working system. It will improve, it will get better. The hardest part was passing it in the first place. Previous administrations have tried, but they all failed. Obama got it done, however, despite even his own chief of staff doubting their ability to broker any sort of reasonable deal for the bill. With that, the President of the United States instantly saved millions of lives, with the stroke of a pen. Many Republican lives will be saved, people who vehemently opposed the passage of the bill.

Or the abilities the president has vs the abilities congress has [/quote] I agree. It's one of the funniest things to me when someone crucifies a president but exonerates the Congress for any failure. [/quote] Another absolutely good point. Congress does, after all, all of the work, right? They're the legislative body. The United States is a nation of laws, correct? They pass the laws! One of my favorite things Republicans are doing right now is: "The president should stop campaigning and focus on working with congress to fix problems in America!" -- yeah, as if it's even possible to "work" with congress right now if you're Barack Obama.

    Something like that sounds good but it's hard to pull that trigger if every independent economist is telling you mayhem will happen if you do. I agree with the sentiment.

  15. Friend or foe

    I hate giving advice that I know isn't what the person is asking for, but in the interest of being honest I'll still give you this: it's very hard to change people. Very hard. If your friend has a chip on his shoulder (for some reason) and is cutting people down willy nilly for no reason, there's a decent chance he's got some sort of personal issue. I'm not saying you shouldn't try to make it all work. Still, it's hard to change people.
