22 December 2007 - 08:57 PMWhy should it matter what a player wears?
QuoteOh I just remembered that I just latley played with this group of cousin who is an army ranger and some of his pals from the force. I just followed thier tactics which were for the other team virutaly impossible to fight against.
Most folks that try to apply military tactics to paintball simply fail. Military tactics for the most part have no place in pb... the distances are off, the ballistics are shot... Half the fun I have playing in FL is wiping the floor with the Marines I play with.
I have no right to play scenario ball, what was I thinking...
I kept telling you at the Shindig, we need to go back to camo!
17 December 2007 - 07:55 PMWe stopped going in 2006.
Foote's not trying to start an argument here... The main reason we stopped going in 06 was safety reasons - our personal relationships with the guys at USANA aside. I heard last year the safety was up (Foote and I visited the field during the game, but didn't play), but from what we heard from players, it still wasn't to par. And RogueShooter, sorry if we come off as arrogant... it's not our intention. We just know the guys running these events, and when it's put out that an event is "under new management," that's not always the real deal. We just see the hype surrounding a lot of events, and from what history tells us, it's usually all hype when it comes to njnam.
To each their own. If you're going to the game we hope you have a great time, and come back here to post about it.
17 December 2007 - 10:49 AMI've played with the same 2 markers for the past 3 years now, either my virtue'd ION or the SP8... and they haven't skipped a beat. I always laugh at people claiming the markers aren't reliable, when more often than not these people have never used them. If they can put up with the amount of torment a season with delta can throw at you, I'm fairly sure they're reliable.
27 November 2007 - 10:29 PMCalling Moore "retarded" isn't addressing any of the issues here... it's just being ignorant. He brings up (mostly) logical points, so let's debate them. Debate the issues - not the man.
Anyway, there is a point to the argument "why are there so many people who are unable to get treated for _______, or don't have healthcare, in the richest country in the world"? It's a decent enough question. And we're not just talking about poor or homeless people here... a major problem with the privatization of health care is how it drives up prices to the point where normal folk can't afford care when something goes wrong.
I also don't agree that socializing health care will drastically lower our standard of care. Personally, I don't want to be treated by a doctor "who's only in it for the money," anyway, as their standard of care is most likely already low. Getting paid more isn't going to make a doctor better.
And as for raising taxes, I'm for it if it helps the country. I'm fine with sacrificing a bit of my earnings to help out those who can't afford care for themselves. Keep in mind that an increase in taxes would probably be somewhat offset by not having to pay for a health care plan anymore anyway.
I'm just siked the military has a social health care system. Free drugs, hospital visits, etc.
