SWTOR – Get in line now!!!

So for the past couple months, I’ve been beta testing Star Wars: The Old Republic, a new MMO, and let me just tell you that it is just utter fantastic.

Because of NDA’s, I can’t go into too much detail, but take a look at the video here. This is pretty horrible quality compared to the game, but you can tell the storyline is just going to kick major ass. Seriously, get on board with this program, WoW players, you WILL see what a REAL MMO looks like with this game.

Does the U.S. really need a bigger ‘credit card’?

What’s all this about ‘Freedom of Speech’?

You know, I find it kind of funny when a ‘celebrity’ (I’m talking to you, John Cena), or ANYONE tries to go out there, acting all political , when they know nothing, and I do mean NOTHING about what they’re speaking. Let me break it down for you. Freedom of Speech is NOT applicable anywhere outside of the government as far as the U.S. is concerned, and even IF it were, it only covers your ‘right’ to say what you want, not the resulting, and inevitable consequences. This has been beyond a hot button for me for years, ignorant asses trying to claim ‘I can say what I want and then claim Freedom of Speech’  when I get called on it. Nope. Here’s the facts, kids (and just the facts):
