A Difficult Subject (The Jimquisition)…

01) A Difficult Subject (The Jimquisition)


“Okay… let’s wade into this debate again. It’s raged for years and has only gotten more poisonous in that time, but we’re gonna step in anyway and try to talk about difficulty options.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is the latest From Software game to spark a debate over difficulty and the merits of an easy mode. We’re gonna talk about how weird the discussion is, and maybe get some elite wisdom from gaming aristocracy!

Sigh… here goes…”

I cannot imagine anyone getting bent out of shape over this.

I’ve never been that big on playing action games…especially hard and fast ones…I’m generally terrible at them, and I just don’t get that much enjoyment out of them.

I like the games that allow you to stop and think…even relish the moment, if it is fitting…

So, I do like the strategy games and simulators, where there is no real pressure.

In addition, my eyes and reflexes aren’t what they used to be…If there weren’t an easy mode or “cheat” MODs, I’d never play many games.

Ted Yoho Offers Non-Apology To AOC…

01) Ted Yoho Offers Non-Apology To AOC


“Ted Yoho is sticking to his deplorable morals.

House leaders in both parties moved swiftly on Tuesday to promote civility — and tamp down lingering tensions — by challenging a conservative lawmaker who had accosted a liberal Democrat on the Capitol steps a day earlier.

Confronting Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Monday, Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) had called her “disgusting” and “out of her freaking mind” for promoting the notion that poverty and unemployment have spawned a recent uptick in crime in New York. Moments later, as he walked away, Yoho referred to her with a crude, sexist slur.

Lawsuit Against Fox News Will Horrify You…

01) Lawsuit Against Fox News Will Horrify You


“Fox News and some of its hosts are in trouble.

A federal lawsuit filed Monday alleges ex-Fox News host Ed Henry raped a woman he had “groomed” and “coerced” into having a sexual relationship when she did not comply voluntarily.

The lawsuit, filed by Douglas Wigdor and Michael Willemin on behalf of Jennifer Eckhart and Cathy Areu, also alleges Fox News supported and promoted Henry after receiving complaints of sexually inappropriate behavior and only fired him earlier this month because they were aware of an impending lawsuit.

The lawsuit alleges Henry sexually harassed both women and raped Eckhart.

Right-Wing SHREDS Trump Over Secret Police…

01) Right-Wing SHREDS Trump Over Secret Police


“Conservatives are going after Trump for his use of federal police.

Andrew Napolitano slammed the Trump administration for sending federal law enforcement to Portland in response to violent protests in Oregon’s largest city, with the Fox News senior judicial analyst calling the move “unconstitutional” and “just plain wrong.”

His remarks come as Portland officials have requested the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) withdraw after videos of protesters being taken off the street by federal officers in unmarked cars prompted outrage.

“You have anarchy on one hand,” Napolitano said. “If the troops come in the streets, you have a potential for even more violence on the other hand.”

Trump Administration Targets China…

01) Trump Administration Targets China


“Trump has ordered the closure of the Chinese consulate in Houston.

The United States government has abruptly ordered China to “cease all operations and events” at its consulate in Houston, Texas, according to the Chinese Foreign Ministry, in what it called an “unprecedented escalation” in recent actions taken by Washington.

Late Tuesday evening, police in Houston said they responded to reports of smoke in the courtyard outside the consulate, located on Montrose Boulevard, in the city’s Midtown area. Local media shared video of what appeared to be officials inside the compound burning documents.
