King Con

Barack Obama won because he is a better "confidence man" than Mitt Romney. And he had a better ground game. Now the question is this: Can he actually govern? My print column is up.

My editor says I sound a little bit "bitter." You decide.

UPDATE: I'll settle for being more or less agreed with by Frank J.:
I still don’t understand what Obama did during Sandy that was impressive. He walked around a bit and looked concerned, but did he do anything you couldn’t train a collie to do?

Of course your editor is right. I've read your column off and on for years; bitter is your over-arching theme. You could attend a five year-olds' birthday party and find a way to write an angry column about it.

Anon,
Write an angry column about a five-year-old's birthday party? Of course I could. Have you ever attended one? They're horrible.

BURN! That's hilarious, Gil. I read your columns often and never is your criticism directed at his race or personal life. It's always about his poor actions, his damaging inactions, and his destructive policies, of which you can always back up with facts and statistics. Democrats, with the assistance of 99% of the mainstream media, have made this year's election about the packaging on both candidates and not about the truth. If Roe v Wade survived 2 terms of Reagan, 1 term of Bush Sr., a republican controlled Congress in mid-90s, and 2 terms of W, what the hell would make you think Romney could overturn a Supreme Court decision. You fell for the baseless rhetoric and now, here we are, less than a week after re-election and this country is already taking a nosedive as a result.

I only responded as the 2nd Anonymous. Listen Mr. Minority, the comment I made reflects the depth of this racist blog. Your intellect consist of trashing the President of the United States. You have no respect and you have no depth!

When all else fails, play the race card and hope it sticks.

The racism charges vs. Mr. Spencer are really dumb. If we were talking about a 2nd term re-election for H. Clinton, Joe Biden, or FDR's clone, Mr. Spencer would be making the same talking points.

Some, and I do mean only some, of the people who make regular "contributions" to comment sections on this paper’s articles and blogs that are racist in nature. I don't think Mr. Spencer comes even close to speaking from that way of thinking.

The Spencerblog takes a supply-side / Chicago School approach to economic policy, a Rand-ian view of the role of government, and a conservative religious view of social issues. That easily explains the mindset of what is written without having to trot out lame charges of racism.

From improving your grades in school to your play on the soccer field to just kicking back and having a good time, video games have so much to offer! In this article, we share ideas to help you find great games and rise in your gaming levels.

You should play with the specific equipment needed for the game of your choosing. You may need more than just one controller. Search online or look at the game box to find out what equipment you require. This gives you a heads up so that you can get what is needed beforehand.

Computers allow you to play games, too. There are many games that you can get on the Internet, with similar quality also available in a system option.

Make the screen brighter. If you can't see the game, you won't be able to play well. You may find that you're frequently being attacked because you can't see. Increase the brightness so you do not miss anything, even if it ruins the dark atmosphere of the game. It will make the colors easier to distinguish and you'll be able to spot your enemies before they spot you.

As you buy a game, make certain that you get warranty or insurance protection. You will feel secure in the knowledge that you can just replace it without hassle. A wii is likely to run into problems eventually. Take precautions.

Downloadable content (DLC) is available from many popular video gaming. Those are bells and whistles at an extra cost. Pay attention to the price tag before you buy. Some times buying DLC games can be two to three times more expensive than a single game.

When playing online gaming, remember to exercise your arms and legs periodically. It's not good to sit doing the same thing for long periods of time. Additionally, if you sit immobile for long periods of times, you will get cramps and perhaps even blood clots. This is for your health.

If you have children, ensure that you're limiting the amount of video game play time your children have. Try not to let your kids play for over two hours every day since it can rearrange their priorities and strain their hands and eyes.

Check out ratings when buying games for children. These games are rated for a reason. Any game with ratings like A or M are totally inappropriate for children. Check the website of the ESRB to learn more.

If possible, try games out before you buy them at your local library. Most public libraries offer computer games that can be checked out for free. The library usually has game titles for all different systems, so simply call ahead and see if they have the title you want.

Figure out how to operate the safety and parental controls of any gaming system that comes into your home. You can likely make adjustments that keep kids from viewing mature content. Some allow each gaming profile to be customized separately, allowing adults to enjoy games not meant for younger audiences.

You can enjoy video games just for fun, or you can get a world of education and enrichment from them. Hopefully you have learned all you need to understand about online games from this article.
