Just drove 2 hours round trip to hit up a target, best buy, and 2 gamestops. Hit a best buy and 2 gamestops yesterday. Have several open preorders for both CoD and Destiny I plan top cancel in a couple of months but total would be $612 - $290.50 spent = $321.50 profit plus I renewed my pro membership, got a hat, got some beta codes, got black ops 1 & 3 for 360, and black ops 3 for ps3.

Oh I have, this must have been like watching the JFK assassination, or the challenger/hindenberg blow up. Just a god awful trainwreck that you can't look away from. It is full of crap, contradictions, junk science and cringe. This is a greater allude to why science and academia is such crap these days -

Besides the fact that Jenner should be put behind bars for killing a woman, it is ludicrous to insinuate that "she" would be the first "woman" president. First trans president okay but saying first woman takes away any agency that actual women might have when it comes to the process. It is the similar to the crap with the transwomen athletes competing against actual women.

So CoD is going back to World War 2 in their next installment and they released the singleplayer trailer that actually looks pretty good - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4Q_XYVescc

Livestream reveal where they talk more about it (the talking about how they examined footage and tested weapons made me jealous) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2wNC5TYjyw

It will have a nazi zombies mode again, there will be a private beta (probably open later too) before release in november, they will also make "other content" (possible W@W remaster?), playstation will get the beta plus other content first, and there is two editions put up right now (regular or pro/digital deluxe versions).

Preorder at gamestop to get a free hat (pro and digital deluxe versions might be exclusive) - http://www.gamestop.com/collection/call-of-duty-wo...

best buy preorder (looks like it might be getting a $10 reward preorder bonus) - http://www.bestbuy.com/site/gaming-collections/cal...

amazon preorder (currently only shows digital deluxe for ps4 and standard editions for multiplatforms) - https://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&lo...

Hopefully best buy gets a digital deluxe edition for xbox one but they have not for others.

There is a lot of ifs for anything in life, for instance you may run into a junkie selling a copy for $30 on a street corner. These types of loyalty programs are never for the people that only shop at a place once or twice a year but rather are for their moderate to reliable customer base. Heck sign up and get a "free" $10 used game a month or trade in loads of stuff to them. It is a lot like a costco membership, I have no interest in buying 256 rolls of TP at once but someone will to save $2.

Look at Nier Automata as an example.

Preowned price = $54.99
Preowned price minus 15% = $46.74
15% off price minus $10 rewards = $36.74
add $5 for the cost of the membership for the month = $41.74

So $41.74 + tax, possible shipping charges or other discounts (If SAVER and CAG16 stack then it would be amazing)

lowest amazon price = $42.48 shipped
lowest ebay BIN price (new) = $43.15 shipped
best buy GCU new price = $47.99 + tax
best buy GCU used price = $44.99 + tax

It can be worth it but it requires you to be smart about it.

Commies loved proxy wars, ACA was never meant to succeed, not really a right or left issue it is an authoritarian vs libertarian issue, he was getting more partisan and stepped outside his role as a judge to push liberal principals, gulags and labor camps are loved by commies, lefties are just as good if not better at populism, again commies love controlling and knowing everything about their citizens while being far far left, yeah to industries that helped fund a lot of DNC campaigns.

Not saying Obama is a commie but those are all weak arguments as neo liberals, commies, and socialists are far left.

The right has moved more towards the center, which is why someone like Trump won. There are still plenty of neocons and other establishment republicans though.

So you are telling me the windows working acted as a deterrent and the scumbag resorted to other methods?

Do you not understand velocity? You also understand how the USD works since we moved away from backing the value of the USD through commodities too right?

edit: Not to mention loosing less manufacturing jobs to overseas which while they could very well go away in the future due to automation, the factories would still be in the USA to employ technicians and prop up our economy instead.

How so? You keep saying it but never show any evidence but shout out, "you are retarded" at people. Wake up and look into the issue at a micro and macro level. The fence does not cover it the border and people just walk around it or through it in areas where there are large enough gaps. Most illegals, guns and drugs run through the border and not via flying or boating over. To build the wall would be an active determent to make it harder for those people/drugs to cross the border and would put strain on other methods like flights or boats which are more closely monitored. It would make the legal methods more attractive.

Move to AZ, Texas or Commiefornia and see for yourself. The border is not secured. You are retarded if you think bringing in millions of illegals to fill jobs that will be overtaken by automation is going to do anything but wreck the poor and middle class, increase strain on social services, and result in voting for larger "socialist" government policy that will eat away at our freedoms and lead us down the same path as countries like Cuba, North Korea, Venezuela, etc. There was a thread on here that I am too lazy to look up right now that I showed pictures of our borders and how easy they are to cross. I have known plenty of legal and illegal migrants along with a few people that used to run illegals across the borders for $300 a head. There is a reason you hear stories about "Mr. X" being deported 4 times prior to committing a heinous crime and it is because they do not serve out their time here but rather get deported then turn around to cross illegally again.

They will, either in losses or by contributing, if there is an import tax levied on their goods then they will lose business which would make americans get their products elsewhere like in america which would increase velocity of our money.

A nation is not a nation without borders, same thing for states. It is a primary duty of the nation to monitor and protect their borders. Other programs often are not a direct duty of the federal government but even if they were they would be lower in priority. People do not have a right to travel across nations freely and squat where they want. America is for Americans and Mexico is for Mexicans, legal citizens pay their taxes to their government to govern and protect their land which is why Mexico has a wall on it's southern border plus they strictly punish those that do illegal cross their borders. If you want to go a different nation you need to get legal authorization from that nation as either a visitor, migrant worker, or defector to that country. Also thought you were employed by the US Gov?

> And isn't the gun you own the back up plan for the Mexicans getting in your door?

No but it is a measure I can use for any person doing a B&E, sort of like a lock or door or wall. If you truly want to stand by what you mean feel free to remove the doors from everything you own and depend on the security that you tell people you know to not mess with your stuff without your express permission.

Average doors for houses in the $100k-$200k range here cost ~$1k-$2k installed with locks, labor, hinges, weather stripping.

This is utter stupidity, the $25 billion for a wall would cost less 1% of the USA budget for something that is actively the governments job. To put that in perspective your car door or house door will typically cost you more than 1% of the total value of that property.
