This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
The message boards have been upgraded. Please log in to your existing account by clicking here. It will ask twice, so that it can properly update your password and login information.

The RPGPundit's Own Forum Rules
This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind. Note that this is the only part of the site where political discussion is permitted, but is regulated by the RPGPundit.

Except if you need a peacemaker and there's none because your government wants to buy them at 90 pesos. Dude we have socialized medicine here since before I was born, don't try and tell me how it works or not.

We have had socialised medicine since before you were born and I am telling it can work OK.

Maybe the problem is with something else?

The value of a socialized medicine program is based on the amount of money spent. If your nation buys the lowest quality for the masses, that's a far cry from buying the medium quality of care.

You could call our Medicare program "socialized medicine" and its superior to most (or all) other programs because the USA spends insanely on Medicare.

It's usually a money versus target demographic issue.

30 million dollars of our taxes "donated" to El Salvador while we have 50 million in poverty, hell he could have donated 10 million pesos each and have some money left. Bum! no more poverty! (for a while) https://www.yucatan.com.mx/mexico/mexico-dona-a-el-salvador-30-millones-de-dolares/amp/

Aaaaand I was right in my suspicions, our beloved comrade leader IS counting people getting money from the government to learn a trade as part of the work force. http://hugopaez.com/?p=4875

Maybe ISIS just got hungry for some delicious carnitas and cold cerveza?

https://www.foxnews.com/world/isis-plot-westerners-mexico-border

Well we could throw some cold carnitas oil and pulque on top of them, maybe then they will go back to their shithole

At the very least that would result in a lot of ritual cleansing.

Pretty sure mentioning Soros in  a negative light is more or less anti semitism, so be careful on that one.

LOL, no, it's not. Unless you start talking about "they" with echoes around. I don't think what a scumbag like Soros does reflects on other Jews, but those who do ARE anti-semites.

That scumbag bets against/in favor of certain currency, then proceeds to do what it takes to make money out of his bet, mainly destabilizing the country to topple their economy and thus making a few bucks. That has as much to do with other Jews as him being a fucking Nazi collaborator (which he was).

   People like the CNN Vanderbilt spawn would disagree with you.   I made the point about the guy being a nazi collaborator before, linked the video where the guy said from his own mouth the time he spent turning people in to nazis were the best years of his life, and folks said he was just a victim of circumstance.

Actually yeah Soros did in fact work for the Nazis.  Fucker sold his people out.
