    Whats up faggots.

    I just wanted to say that this game is a perfect example of what happens when socialists take control of anything, what is left of staff is a bunch of fucking morons who value feelings over results. This could have been fixed years ago had the "SS Council" not been a bunch of dumbass cunts and combined the zones. This could have been fixed by keeping people on staff who maybe weren't nice but actually didn't blow at their jobs. The game was going to die but for fuck sake what a pathetic way to go out based on what I am reading here. Good job you useless fuck sticks, you and your always happy ass kissing band of dip shits ruined a 20+ year legacy.

    Oh yeah and anyone from Boston, or Red Sox fans in general can eat a giant bag of dicks, I hope you enjoyed it today as the Astro's came into your house and fucked your wives in front of you while you had to sit there video taping it like the cucks you are.

    You know who was the biggest faggot ever on this game, I mean there are a lot to choose from but Poid has to be up there near the top. I have never before in my life to date met someone who just screamed I am a giant faggot IRL and need spaceship power to make me feel better than he did. I mean Rudy used to have no chill but he calmed down, Cops and Kolar were like the canadian bert and ernie for awhile but they grew up and stopped being fucking pussies after a bit. Nethilia I am sure ended up doing some sort of Buffalo Bill type serial killing shit. Trying to think of who else but its hard to remember with the long list of giant faggots who played this game.

    You guys know what was the most fun about this game wasn't the spaceship part but it was all of the amazing shit talking that we used to have. We grew up playing games with each other for like 10 years before we were in our early 20's and by that point we all knew real life shit about each other. So whenever things got heated we could bust out some really terrible things about each other. Like when Izor sucked in TWL and tried talking shit I could bring up the fact that he was eating like 5 angry whoppers a day and then JB Inc got goddess pregnant and had a kid with her so was always unhappy after that. I mean, that is really what made this game great was knowing the best way to really emotionally damage someone in real life. It makes trolling in other games not nearly as fun.

    Tiny, remember when we beat you in a TWJD and you dissolved your squad because Izor went like 15-0, it was called "Truck" and we ended up getting the squadtag. We kept making "keep on trucking" messages and comments to you for weeks after that, man that was a lot of fun.

    You know when I knew this game was going to die, seriously here. The population was too fucking stupid to figure out how to play ?go journey or ?go Warzone. The population was so fucking incompetent I had to start warping dipshits to the starting locations because there wasn't enough people where I could spec 20 dipshits and still have a good game. We really dropped the ball on that one, adding all that autowarp shit to pub gave us a population of the kind of people who make claushouse finally give up. What a bunch of fucking imbeciles.

    this is more like late stage capitalism, power has slowly centralized and coalesced into the hands of the 1% who promptly turn around and lord over everyone, and when people complain, they then act like victims while continuing to fuck people

    valuing "feelings" over "results" is when you're the only first world country that doesn't have universal healthcare because a small but powerful group of people literally jack off to a photo of william f. buckley jacking off to thomas jefferson

    Universal Healthcare is terrible, the doctors suck, they don't do a good job treating patients, there is waiting lists for services and it is also a fundamental tool for destabilizing a population. Don't tell me you've gone all faggot Antifa on me JS

    *while waiting another two weeks for my specialist appointment in a country with 17,000 malpractice suits a year* the problem with single-payer, you see, is wait times and bad doctors

    edit: i know it seems weird that i spent a decade spouting economics and shit at people only to come to this point, but i should point out that "capitalism" as a term was first used by karl marx, and his work, "das kapital", is by far one of the better economics texts i've ever read, and as someone who has always viewed history through an economic lens, the idea of historical materialism is very enticing indeed

    there's a reason the right-wing has spent years conditioning people to reflexively hate marxism: because it's hard to hate it when you actually sit down and read about it, so you gotta tell people "no, its so bad you shouldnt even read it"

    I have actually read that before, but the system we use is much different than the system employed originally in Europe in which Marx's writings inspired.. I am going to assume you are going to bring up John Smith next? But anyways that is far from the point that socialized medicine is a failure wherever it is implemented, and never before has it been put into place in such a large and largely populated country. Also I find it funny you bring up Marx without bringing up Alinsky

    Also to get back to the original point. A lot of the reason why costs are so expensive here in the US also is the fact that we are responsible for creating new drugs and establish new drug patents.

    http://www.xconomy.com/seattle/2014/...-complicated/# (linked proof here)

    So, after we create all these life saving drugs with our "terrible healthcare system" we also make sure our doctors are paid well, which is the reason we are also leading in research against most diseases (Especially here in Houston). The rest of the world benefits from the money we spend on our healthcare system. I know you went to school and those alinskyites brainwashed you but you need to wake up and relearn how to use common sense there my dude.

    Marx basically laid out a framework through which events & history could be analyzed. His big contribution was developing the idea that society has followed a cycle where "masters" and "slaves" continually redefine their own relationship through revolution. There used to be tyrants and caesars, and then the masses learned about themselves and their world, revolted, and society re-arranged itself anew: the feudal arrangement. Then the masses learned more about themselves and their world, they revolted, and feudalism to constitutional monarchism, which gave way to parliaments, which gave way / are giving way to increasingly "free" forms of government.

    Marx might have been a man of a certain place or time but that's like saying gravity doesn't apply anymore cuz Newton's era is long gone. Marx didn't analyze a certain time or place, he looked at all of history and derived some interesting conclusions!

    Anyways I also think you meant Adam* Smith, and also, read Wealth of Nations! When talking about "free markets" he meant markets free from cartel/monopoly control, and called for their regulation lol

    The amount of fake news and leftist spin surrounding ‘Single Payer’ or ‘Universal Care’ is staggering. The vast majority of those who comment have never experienced shit. In fact, most people do not know that US already has socialized medicine. In 1975 the US implemented a law that provides dialysis for every person at no charge through Medicare. Anyone who is diagnosed with End Stage Renal Disease, whether you are 5 years old or 85 years old, is automatically qualified for Medicare and Disability. This covers 80% of all your medical costs and then there are other programs where you can get the 20% of your medical costs covered. The cost for doing this is a bit more than 2% of the total US annual budget. (For comparison, the Dept of Education entire budget is only 1% of the total; supporting dialysis is costing US tax payers twice what they are paying for education.)

    I have a unique perspective, I get dialysis treatments with this socialized system but I get my cancer infusion treatments through the normal competitive system. It is a fucking night and day difference. The level of care absolutely sucks under the socialized dialysis system, it is abysmal compared to the competitive system. The reason is simple; the socialized system emphasis is totally and completely based upon patient ‘turn over’ and greatly reducing the patient to healthcare provider ratios.

    At dialysis center, there are 40 chairs and treatments take about 4-5 hours. At the infusion center, there is 35 chairs and treatments take about 3-4 hours. At dialysis there is 2 nurses handling 40 patients, at the infusion center there is 13 nurses handling 35 patients. And with the extreme emphasis on productivity; the socialize dialysis system is ALL about ‘treat them and street them’. They are forced to rush through the medical care, it is basically a medical sweat shop. And due to this the dialysis centers across the USA have an employee turn-over rates that are comparable to that of McDonalds. When you spend 15-20 hours per week in these systems you get a good handle on how many mistakes and errors are occurring; I have documented as many 4 mistakes per week at the dialysis center but have never seen a mistake made at the infusion center. In either system, mistakes can be life threatening. When you are constantly training new healthcare employees more mistakes are made. And the level of morale of the care providers between the two systems is shocking and scary.

    I cannot pseak to how socialized medicine is implemented in other coutnries but here in the USA it sucks. Anyone who supports socialized medicine ought to come sit in my shoes for a few weeks and see the difference between these two systems. It is hard enough for my wife to deal with me having cancer, but she is far more afraid that the socialized dialysis center will kill me first.

    Weird to blame an entire system on a single dialysis center but ok, that absolutely does suck. I dunno though, I dated a chick who was in the air force and her (completely subsidized, socialized) tri-care was pretty awesome. On top of that, we moved my grandma to shreveport when she got too old to take care of herself in Albuquerque, and occasionally I'll run her to the dialysis place and I dunno, seems like you're just dealing with a really shitty one

    I might even go further and suggest you look closely at Medicare and 1) the repeated efforts by a certain party to continually hobble it and de-fund it, as well as 2) the sort of regulatory concessions that a certain party has given, over and over, to these healthcare providers who lobby hard for profit-increasing laws and regulation at the expense of service or quality.

    That is because unfortunately once you start giving out handouts it becomes harder and harder to take them away. Take social security for example. I don't know about you but I am pretty sure investing the money I pay into that would go much further in a IRA or 401k account, especially since Trump took office. Also your one story doesn't really jive with the dozens of people I know, Izor from this game, my wife etc who have had the worst fucking service with their VA healthcare.

    I don’t need to go look at Medicare, I live with it every day. Your comment about blaming an entire system on one center reveals that you do not have an understanding about what you are talking about. I have been to 5 different dialysis centers but all dialysis in the USA is handed to one of two companies. Both companies have the exact same issues. They do not compete with each other, the marketplace has been setup so that they each share 50%. In VERY few local markets do patients have a choice. This is not available in 95% of the country, only the very largest cities have both companies available.

    Interestingly enough, the level of care is higher (CMS stats) and number of reported issues (CDC stats) is much lower in those cities with competition between the two. The employees also average $3-$6 per hour more. So what are the rest of us patients think about that? Apparently major city patients are worth more than rural patients? Nice.

    Each of these two companies gross around $11-12 BILLION per year; DaVita (the only one I can use) profited about $800 million last year. Yet there is one dialysis tech at my home center who has been there 18 years and she earns less than $35k per year. I have to bring my own Tegaderms (bandages) because they are too cheap and will only dress the port access with a piece of gauze and tape (which Medicare will cover). Nice.

    And I am curious as to why anyone would hold up the VA as evidence of a good implementation of socialized medicine. People are dying waiting for care in that system. Who can point to any social program that Federal government does well?

    For an understanding of wait times, simply Google this. In Canada the wait time for a CAT scan is measured in weeks and weeks; same for England. When I go to my oncologist, she has a Cat scan in her office and I can get one an hour after she orders it.

    Seriously, people who talk about this really need to go through this shit before forming an opinion. Go put your life in the hands of a $35k per year caregiver with a bad attitude, or a caregiver who has zero experience and then tell me how great socialized medicine is.
