samaritan1975: (What?!?)
Article in the LA Times about McCain's reluctance to support the new GI Bill.

McCain must lead the charge.


What gets me is this little gem:

"The White House has voiced concern on the bill, arguing that if returning troops are offered a good education, they will choose college over extending their service. This is as offensive as it is absurd."

There are whole slew of other, colorful words I could be using for that if it's true. As someone on RPGnet said, though- when a four star suggests that you hop on board, you might want to at least consider what he's saying.

I wasn't going to even buy this, but FYE was having a rebate/sale that got it down to $20, so I figured what the heck. The SP campaign is... well, not bad, but it's not superb yet. I'm only a short way into the game, anyways.

I haven't tried the MP yet, but I do understand that's where the game shines. I might have time tonight to give it a whirl.

So, last night, I decided that I'd just mess around the SP. I got to the point where the ops center gets raided, and you have to escape from underground with some Marines via the Warthogs. So, the twisted part of me, seeing a wounded Marine being tended to by a medic, says "I wonder what would happen if I decided to enact some of my own triage...."

*BLAM!*

The medic stands, looks at me, draws his weapon, and says, "Jesus, Chief. He was one of ours!" The medic then runs around a stack of crates, and stands over another wounded Marine... as if... daring me?

*BLAM!*

"Dammit, Chief, I didn't wanna do this!!!!" *ratatatatatat with his gat* I drop the medic... another Marine comes running over.

"You know, Chief... you could've just asked him for his weapon."

*L*

I have to say, the AI does have some funny lines. "Hey, pedestrians have rights too!" (having nearly been run over by a Ghost); "You drive- I wanna shoot things!" (boarding the Warthog), and so on.
