    912415 286102There is an ending. Just remember that I meant for this to be an art game. I do feel like I spent an inordinate amount of time on the more traditional gameplay elements, which could make the meaning with the game a bit unclear.

So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! However yeah Thnkx for spending the time to debate this, I really feel strongly about it and love reading extra on this topic. If possible, as you develop into experience, would you thoughts updating your weblog with more particulars? It is extremely helpful for me. Large thumb up for this blog submit!

    I don't know.....I kinda find it refreshing that he can say these things.....First Amendment and all....is he an insensitive, ignorant moron? So, it would seem to many but that is his right too. No law that says you can't be a jerk, that anyone has to like you or that you can't not like someone.

    Sad part is the web and world are filled with ignorant Sheeples that form their thoughts, ideas and beliefs based on stupid comments like Bashir made....but, I guess that is what it means to live in a "Free" Society.

    Bashir just tried to give Palin some perspective. The GOP uses terns like slavery, holocaust, Hitler, socialism and communism without a clue as to the meaning or significance. It's like they can't stop themselves from using the words inappropriately and vindictively. Amy came off on RS as an angry lady and offered no real rebuttal to Bashir's remark other than pointing out the obvious, that he played the role as slave owner to drive his point home. Palin didn't even care to look at that perspective when she made the comment. Smart people like Bashir look at all sides, unlike the Amy who is scared to and Palin, who doesn't know that she should.

    You know, I'm not exactly sure what all the fuss is about. Bashir appologized to the seven viewers who heard the comment.

      So you know what's going on so you're probably one of the seven. He's got eight now. This blow up will finally shed some much needed light on this guy and drive up his numbers.

    I understand why Bashir is having to apologize, and well he should. Why is Palin not expected to do so as well? If the media is so liberally biased, why is the liberal expected to apologize but the conservative can go around acting offended but not apologetic? And the general defense is apparently, "Well, Palin says stupid and offensive things all the time, and everyone should stop paying any attention to what she says."

      Exactly what is Palin supposed to appologize for? What has she, or any person, done to deserve this type of treatment?

      Perhaps Dan Savage can do the honors on Bashir and then ceremoniously wash his mouth out with soap. Then from his contrite position he can implore others who agree with him to do the same.

      You are wrong. And you are full of hate. Sarah Palin did not deserve this. No human being deserves this kind of speech. Bashir should have joined Alec Baldwin on the unemployment line.

    Bashir should be fired immediately for his gross verbal indecency, even though he apologized.. It is disgusting for anyone to speak this way to another human being, let alone a man to a woman. By using that imagery, foisted not only on Sarah Palin, but on the public, Bashir reveals a possible preoccupation with that astounding perversion from history. Deep anger issues appear evident. These issues should be resolved privately and not played out in the public arena where the expectation should be of civil discourse.

    I wish you would have played Palin's comments. I researched them as I was interested in what she could have said to provoke such a response. She was talking about debt slavery, which is not what Bashir's vile comments were about. So her comments were misrepresented by Bashir and not clarified by you.
    The fact that Bashir's comments were preplanned show that others at the station were aware and approved the commentary. Bashir was horribly wrong to say what he said, but he is not the only one who should be held to account.
    Apparently sexism is alive and flourishing at MSNBC.
