Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So as we know the Republicans have been fearmongering the hell out of the Gitmo closure with "terrorists coming to a state near you" and what not. And the Democrats will give them Houses and put them on welfare and probably give them the vote while they're at it. Best exemplified by this video released by Senate Republicans recently:
Naturally, Harry Reid caved to these asshats. And then he gave the following press conference where he uttered maybe the single most incomprehensible statement made by an American politician in the last decade (which as we know, is quite a high bar to cross):
REID: Iâ€™m saying that the United States Senate, Democrats and Republicans, do not want terrorists to be released in the United States. Thatâ€™s very clear.
QUESTION: No oneâ€™s talking about releasing them. Weâ€™re talking about putting them in prison somewhere in the United States.
REID: Canâ€™t put them in prison unless you release them.
QUESTION: Sir, are you going to clarify that a little bit? â€¦
REID: I canâ€™t make it any more clear than the statement I have given to you. We will never allow terrorists to be released in the United States.
Later, Reid repeated that he would not support Guantanamo detainees being transferred to U.S prisons:
QUESTION: But Senator, Senator, itâ€™s not that youâ€™re not being clear when you say you donâ€™t want them released. But could you say â€” would you be all right with them being transferred to an American prison?
REID: Not in the United States.
I know Harry is a spineless coward in the face of Republican attacks, but that's impressive even for him.
So for a topic: what the fuck is the response to this from the administration? They can't close Gitmo without the money to close Gitmo, soooo...
