  1. First off, the poll nonsense needs to stop. Not just ron paul, but every body in the GOP race. However, I guarantee you most Americans would like a gold standard. Don't know why you think a gold standard is a bad idea though. I think it might be a pipe dream because you would have to either raise the price of gold up so high that all the extra money we printed is balances out, or we have to burn a hell of a lot of money. However, you make it sound like it is this terrible idea. Either that is not your intent, or it is your intent and you need therapy.

    No the gold standard WAS not is a good idea

    Lets assume ol ronny gets elected and returns us to the standard

    We have approx 445B in gold at ft Knox to pay off the trillions in debt owed to china Japan etc. That math doesn't add up.

    How do business with no gold start up? And last but not least Ronny better have the house and senate at his back to even consider passing legislation for it.


  2. Hey hey, one of my best friends is Syrian. I find what you say about his country offensive. Sure there may be some radical people in his country but not everyone there is out to get us. It just seems like some sort of paranoid delusion.

    I hate to break the news but "some radical people" happen to be in power there. Cheer up


  3. NO! You are missing all the freaking points. Isolationism is good for a country in our current state. We are taking on WAY too many people into our country for our economic standings to hold them and us up. He doesn't mean that we are going to be like North Korea. He means that we are going to keep immigration limited and well maintained, and that we aren't going to let every company slip out into China to avoid taxes either. It isn't like you are going to have to cancel your trip to Italy because Ron Paul has guards stopping you from leaving the country. He uses the word isolationism because he doesn't want to say that he will regulate immigration and emigration. He just wants to keep people out so that we can actually regroup as a country and take yet another factor out of our economic instability.

     

    Ron Paul does not want to see the middle east in turmoil. He wants people to fight their own battles. He is arguing that America should not be the police of the world. Now the only problem I have with the Muslims is their treatment of women. You can have whatever culture you like, but you do not get to hurt other people in the process. I would really like to join the military just so I can go to a stoning event and just start killing all the men there. Jihad on white people? How about jihad on sexiest heartless bastards? So to let the whole Arab world fight their own fight is indeed a little bit too neglectful for my taste and that is where I differ from Ron paul, but to think that he wants to see senseless strife in the middle east to continue you are so far wrong it is not even funny.

    While you are over there saving the Muslim women you will have your hands full saving the Israeli women too. There won't be any men left either because they would wipe out Israel the second we turned our backs.


  4. Ron Paul says "today there was a national poll that came out and they were talking about how many people supported the gold standard. How long has it been since they've taken a national poll on the gold standard? And guess what? The majority of the American people believe we should have a gold standard and not a paper standard" for U.S. currency.

     

    Paul says "the majority of the American people believe we should have a gold standard and not a paper standard." But the polls his campaign cited to back up that claim surveyed likely Republican primary voters in three states -- not voters nationwide. The one national poll that addressed this question found 44 percent in favor of a gold standard, and that isn’t a majority.

     

    Ron Paul says “The individual suffering from AIDS certainly is a victim — frequently a victim of his own lifestyle — but this same individual victimizes innocent citizens by forcing them to pay for his care,” Paul wrote.

     

    Employee rights are said to be valid when employers pressure employees into sexual activity,” Paul wrote. “Why don’t they quit once the so-called harassment starts? Obviously the morals of the harasser cannot be defended, but how can the harassee escape some responsibility for the problem? Seeking protection under civil rights legislation is hardly acceptable"

     

    I have read these and some other quotes really really really good and can't find any reason to like Ron Paul very much.

     

    **Edited to add more profound quotes


  5. Last I heard he wasn't planning on getting rid of the government, laws, law enforcement. :lol:

     

    I don't think he's proposing anarchy like you suggest, I do think he promotes freedom however.

     

    For example, he's for gun rights, believes in the second amendment in the idea that it allows law abiding citizens to protect themselves, however he isn't suggesting that just anybody should be allowed to have a gun.

     

    Honestly, I keep seeing people pop in this thread talking about how crazy Ron Paul is but they never even give examples really. The only person I think that did is Kingfisher and I can't really make sense of what he's saying, the way he words stuff is just strange to me.

    Haha, well it's ok, Ron Paul doesn't make much sense to me either. He wants to limit government (I agree) he wants to follow the constitution (I agree). He wants to keep our country isolated(don't agree). He wants to allow countries like Iran and Syria and even the fine people of palatine(Hamas) freedom to wreak havoc on the world(destroy Israel).

    Strange indeed


  6. So, its absurd to you that not all muslims are radical in their beliefs? That is like saying that all russians are communist or the westboro baptist church is an accurate representation of all americans.

    I'm pretty sure the CIA explanation there makes much more sense than ^^^

     

    I grew up as a kid with Muslim neighbors..They weren't radical. They owned a gas station.

    What is absurd is to think they are bombing us because we are bombing them.

    The real danger here is this kind of thinking. People who strap bombs to themselves and blow up school buses full of kids in the name of god is a fairly normal activity , right?

    Firing hundreds of rockets into innocent civilians is normal, right?

    No it's absurd. And to ignore it and pretend the USA is responsible is even more absurd.


  7. "To declare war on 1.2 billion Muslims and say all Muslims are the same, this is dangerous talk,” Paul added. “Yeah, there are some radicals. But they don't come here to kill us because we're free and prosperous. Do they go to Switzerland and Sweden? I mean, that's absurd….The CIA has explained it to us. They said they come here and want to do us harm because we're bombing them."

     

    Outstanding foreign policy there Ron Neville Chambelain Paul. Oh yea, that "bring back the gold standard " is another gem of an idea.

     

    This guy is absurd , I'm sorry but I'd rather have Obama and his socialist agenda than Ron Paul for 4 more years.

    This is exactly why Paul doesn't have a chance in hell.


  8. I have been looking into getting an SSD to use as cache for my new z68 board.

    I've seen so many different specs mentioned.

    Some claim they read up to 500 but write up to 95.

    Other will claim over 500 read and writes.

    At the end of the day aren't they all the same performance wise?

    Assuming its a sata III Runnimg on a sata III controller In real world fr the average joe computer builder/owner who plays games and looks at you tube videos , does it really matter which SSD you buy?


  9. Sort of the same thing, the difference is my current asus board will behave like its dead (has done this every time I clear CMOS) and then atart adter a few secondsand the intel board is just plain dead.

     

    The only thing was maybe I was a bit impatient this time.

     

     

    I am returning the intel board and will pick up an Asrock extreme 3 gen3 board. I tested the psu and it tested out fine.

     

    If somehow the Asrock board doesn't start up then I'll go ahead and replace the psu (and buy a Dell) j/k.

     

    Thanks for te tips gang :)

    I did test my psu gang :)

    Replacement board comes tomorrow so I can finally get my new hardware up and going, assuming this board isn't doa like the last one.


  10. Anyone find it odd that the majority of the politicians pushing this are Republicans? There are a few Democrats in there, but that's fine because they're Socialists, but shouldn't Republicans be against this sort of Socialist movement? :P

     

    Pelosi opposes it, not much more to say ...


  11.  

    Hitatchi drives suck. They have one of the highest failure rates in the hard drive industry. The seagate ones I suggested are about the same price and are much better for read and write times. :thumbsup:

     

    I've had several hitachi sata drives and I can honestly tell you I've dropped kicked butchered and battered them over the past 5 yrs and they still work great.


  12. Question: Is it normal for a game to finish downloading and then go through a hundred and 5 "updates" that all look like they are same update as the one before or did I screw something up?

    Yep. Just let steam do it's thing , it will keep all your games patched to the latest updates.


  13. I bought these two through steam but play them very little:

     

    Far Cry 2

    Rome Total War Gold Edition

     

    because.. :no:

     

    I too have been only playing my retail copy of Skyrim, the game even made me upgrade to an i5 2500k set-up(coming soon) :doh:


  14. Only if the return was because of their error. I just returned an unopened psu yesterday to the tune of 17.83 because I didn't need it.

    Their error they pay ,your error you pay. Thats just life in the big city.

    I dont mind paying a re stock fee for that reason. After all. It costs them time spent packaging your order and shipping costs. It's not like you went to Walmart , bought a pair shoes and decided to return them. You do most of the leg work there and it doesn't involve someone driving a brown truck. :)

     

    Oh and Newegg also will waive re stock fee if you return an item and purchase something else.


  15. If your getting the same thing from two different set ups using the same psu looks like you have found the problem. Do you have or can you get another psu ?

    Do the voltage checks as you mentioned but I think you will be needing a new psu. Newegg has the Corsair HX 1050 on sale ,reviewed here. http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/corsair_hx1050/

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139034

    Free shipping ,199 price and a 30 dollar gift egg card. Good deal. The same unit goes for 253 out the door at Microcenter.

    Good Luck. Hope you get it fixed soon ;)

  16. I am replacing parts in my sig with i5 2500k , intel dz68db mobo and patriot ddr3 1600(2x4)

     

    I did basic test set up with mobo on cardboard CPU and 1 stick of ram in dimm1 per motherboard manual.

     

    Connected CPU and 24 pin connectors and CPU fan to its header.

     

    Power up and nothing but the standby light on mobo. Built in speaker didn't beep either.

     

    Unplugged everything , took battery out for five min , and still nothing but little green light on mobo.

     

    I re install my old system(in sig) and it does same thing. Just the little green light.

    I take battery out and clear jumper and nothing.

    I think it's time for a break. I come back hour later and press case start button and still nothing. I flip the rocker switch on back of power supply and nothing.

     

    I wait another ten minutes and I flip the rocker switch and my old system(in sig) lights right up and boots into windows.

     

    I'm ready to rma the motherboard but can't help but think maybe it's my power supply or something really strange.

     

    I plan on testing the supply wih a volt meter but do not have the time until Tomorrow.

    It's about 4 yr old FSP Group
