WOW, for someone who understands Washington, that was questionable. I understood the "small changes like a cruise liner" analogy. If you over correct for wind on the nose, you could end up in irons or at the bottom of the drink. How do you campaign to the masses who don't even understand our system of checks and balances? With a little sincerity, heart, and integrity? He's working hard for everything he promised. Many have sacrificed. The constraints are what they are. Is media inherently opportunistic?

I watched RED tonight. It was alright. The beginning was a bit weak, though it started to get better with the introduction of John Malkovich's character.

There were a few things I cringed at, though.

Spoiler:
1. William Cooper not only carries a Blackberry with him into an underground vault containing highly classified materials, but manages to successfully make a call from within one.
2. I found it odd how conspicuous each assassination attempt was (Frank Moses's house, the airport, etc.), especially considering the fact that the assassinations were meant to keep people quiet.
3. "Ultra Top Secret" does not exist.
4. Frank Moses is bad at Russian.
5. I found the amount of security surrounding the Vice President's announcement dinner/party to be disturbingly low.

And it happened again today ...


No , dear American people , we're not all communists in Europe .


Like a lot of people , I dabble in on-line games to pass the time every so often . After some playing and chatting , the inevitable conversations start .. one of which is a repeat offender on the US server where I play ...

-Where are you from ?
-Belgium.
-Oh , that's one of those socialist European countries ?
- ....


By the end of the conversation I'm pulling out my hair with my left hand while trying to type with the right that :

No .. where I live socialist doesn't mean communist ..
Labour party =/= communist party.
They shouldn't feel sorry for me .
That we actually DO have a communist party because we are allowed to have one , but it doesn't get more than 0.2% of the votes at the best of times ..
That I'm much more worried about the rise of right wing extremist parties (who get up to 8% here) than I would ever be of the sporadic communist .

This has happened to me way too often for it to be a fluke.

I sometimes try to explain about having multiple parties and making coalitions , but usually give up after a few minutes.

Either that propaganda machine working really well over there or there's some real misconceptions in the schooling system.
Are there plans to bring "democracy" back here that I should know about ? Should I prepare for an invasion?
I'm really curious about a real explanation for this phenomenon.

I'm sure everyone here know their politics .. I just needed to vent somewhere I was sure someone would understand this particular frustration.
There's probably a lot of misconceptions all around but when ppl take pity on me and act like they want to mail me a dollar so I can bribe the guy that tells people where to stand in the food queue , I have a real urge to keep hitting them over the head with my wallet till they stay down.

Phoenixx, you pretty much nailed it in one. The misconceptions and propaganda continue to be spread both by fucking idiots and by individuals exploiting it for political gain, and the tragically subpar nature of public schooling means nobody has the critical thinking skills (or desire for knowledge) to see through it.

Not louder, just harder to ignore. Used to be you could hole up in your house with your books, hang out at the Library or what have you, and pretty much avoid people you didn't want to see. Now, with the Bookface and Xbox Lives and Twittering Omegles or whatever the hell you kids are on about, it's more difficult to hide yourself away from said undesirables.

Which... in the long run is probably a good thing. How else will we discover just how god awfully horrible the education system's gotten if we aren't regularly faced with people who swear that World War II is when we fought the Nazis in England and droppped Da Bomb on Heroshema, Scotland?

Many high-powered sniper rifles have them, it increases accuracy, because the user is less likely to separate their shoulder attempting to steady the shot. Not all, some still rely on gas-powered compression to blunt the recoil, but that does not work well.

There's almost some movie rule about it - the more impressive the recoil in a movie, the less the recoil is in real life, and vice versa. Movies often have characters firing weapons with notable recoil (say, one-handed fully automatic weapons with the trigger held down) suffering no ill affects, yet when firing weapons that have been specially designed to have near zero recoil (I'm specifically thinking of certain models of rocket launchers here), the character will often be flung backwards from the blast.

What about the stamina required to hold a handgun forward and center, firing repeatedly? Adrenalin aside, you fuckers ought to be vibrating.

Using proper holding form, I lasted less than 15 minutes at a shooting range before my hands were shaking.

The other thing that bugs me in cinema is when they pull back the hammer of a pistol to emphasize a point.

I'm not saying recoil does not exist. I've fired a Desert Eagle, I'm well acquainted with Mr. Newton. I'm just saying that it is possible to machine a weapon so that you minimize the recoil, but in order to do so, you decrease either rate of fire, or increase the size of the weapon, or both.
