#MurkyPolitics #LikeHellThatWasMurky

Today... technically... within the last 24 hours... was one of the darkest days in American History. Future Historians may quibble over what exactly was the darkest moment of July 12th 2018.

Was it when a sworn officer of the law kept smirking and giggling during a congressional hearing over his criminal actions?

Was it when that sworn officer of the law was forced to read aloud his various biased statements of record and then declared that his bias did not make him biased?

Was it when Elected Representatives of the Democrat Party intentionally abused the rules of the hearing to run out the time clock on answers, harass parties asking questions, and eventually forced a suspension of the time clock rules because of their abuse?

Was it when an Elected Representative of the Democrat Party conflated the selfless and noble actions of a member of the US Military putting themselves into the path of physical harm way for their country... with the SELFISH acts of a conceited, arrogant, philandering creep who engaged in a wide array of acts involving theft, espionage, criminal collusion, and perjury?

Or was it when America learned that they had literally come within one presidential election of a Permanent Police State?

The #StrzokHearing demonstrated beyond any shadow of doubt just how close the United States came to actually being a police state under Hillary Clinton. If Hillary Clinton had won then American Citizens would never know just how deeply corrupted the upper tiers of the Federal Bureau of Investigation were; nor how tightly entwined those corrupted tiers were with the organizations of the Clintons, the DNC, and the Obama Administration. Those corrupted officials would be free to partake in any illegal action they desired with zero oversight and zero accountability.

The expectation on the part of the corrupted agents within the FBI has been demonstrated multiple times now. Lisa Page, for example, defied a legal subpoena to appear before congress... which in and of itself is a criminal action. Peter Strzok has been before congress twice. The first time he went into a closed-door meeting and in the few questions that Strzok deigned to answer he intentionally invoked classified material that would make the release of his testimony problematic. The second time, on 07/12/18, Strzok demonstrated zero respect for the legal congressional oversight of his actions and, at least on first analysis, committed perjury on live television.

In the aftermath of the disastrous hearings both DNC and GOP operatives were quick to place their own spins on how the hearings went. The DNC spin seems to be rooted in how little information was actually gained from the hearings. The GOP spin is that Strzok was actively aided by the DNC and his massive team of lawyers in avoiding actually confessing to any of the crimes that can be proven.

The problem with spin though... is that it relies on people not being familiar with a subject matter... and in the era of Youtube, twitch, Vimeo, and cloud drives... the hearing is available for anybody to watch an analyse... and from where I sit the GOP reps managed to land at least one solid blow on Peter Strzok.

The only issue of no doubt to anyone... is that Peter Strzok has no credibility. His bias was on full display for anyone to watch... and his own camera recorded admission that he had never recused himself from any case has opened up a huge can of worms for the Department of Justice.

As of right now; in order to assure the American Citizens that Peter Strzok and Lisa Page have not been involved in any other miscarriages of justice; the Department of Justice needs to launch an immediate review of all of the cases Strzok and Page have worked on.

That means re-opening every closed case with new agents... assigning all current open cases to new agents... and tying up the US Court System as any and all convictions that Peter Strzok and Lisa Page have been involved in must now be considered for re-trial.

That's how bad the damage is from the 07/12/18 hearings.

Will the DOJ actually take that step? Under Jeff Sessions? I doubt it.

#GNiE

One of the better known Linux news sites that caters to gaming interests (rhymes with Moronix) routinely runs a number of "scary" posts about how few users actually leverage Valve's Steam on Linux.

Those figures? Are pretty meaningless. For starters; I have Steam_Linux installed on 3 different Linux platforms. One is on my desktop Kaveri system, one on my media server, and one on a laptop that can barely play "Shatter." I have never been polled on any of those 3 systems by Steam... but I have been polled multiples times on the Kaveri system while booted under Windows.

Valve's figures for who uses Steam_Linux is only accurate in terms of measuring those users who not only are polled, but additionally opt-in to that poll. Basically, you cannot take Valve's published figures as the be-all-end-all of who uses what.

Now; Valve tracks concurrent users at around 14 million to 16 million users. If only 1% of those concurrent users are on Linux; that's still 140,000 to 160,000 unique users... and that's a significant amount of gamers to sell to. However; that number undershoots, significantly, since not all gamers are engaged at their systems 24/7.

Valve says that they have over 125 million unique users; so a 1% penetration would 1.25 million users. That's a lot; and that's one of the reasons why (Moronix's) scare stories about lack of Linux users in Steam can't be taken at value.

Yes; Linux users are a distinct minority; but they still literally number into the 7 digit figure potential market.

The point though of releasing Linux client's is not about attracting those few hundred thousand to potentially millions of sales.

The point of releasing Linux clients is Good Coding Practices. Leveraging Platform Neutral API's and simultaneously publishing across multiple Operating Systems forces developers to not just clearly document their code; but also avoid platform specific black box solutions.

I would go so far as to say that if you cannot hit the compile button in your compiler and get both Windows AND Linux builds natively... YOUR DEVELOPMENT TOOLCHAIN IS BROKEN

I'm not going to include Apple here since, well, need I say anything more than "Metal 2" to indicate a company that is all about not enabling platform compatibility?

That GoG can't simply recompile the existing GoG Galaxy client and have a native Linux client boom, right then and there, deserves and demands a significant amount of inspection into internal code quality generation practices. Whoever is working on Galaxy seriously needs to consider their development workflow; because SOMETHING IS BROKEN.

Yesterday was March 23rd 2018.

For many conservatives, libertarians, or just those who are fiscally inclined, it was a day of tragedy as President of the United States Donald J. Trump signed an Omnibus spending bill. The Omnibus; apparently so named for it's inclusion of not just multiple smaller expenditure and fiscal request bills but also bills that had little to do with the budgetary matters; was described as a Christmas Gift for Liberals and Democrats. The entirety of the Bill's passage was a near repeat of the failing Affordable Care Act, with a ludicrously short period of time between the bill's introduction and it's vote on the House and Senate floors. The bill contained boondoggles such as a tunnel favored by Chuck Schumer; as well as continued federal funding of Planned Parenthood's Eugenics program against African Americans.

In short; the Omnibus was little more than a Democrat's wet dream of spending proposals that flew in direct opposition to everything GOP candidates ran on in 2016. It was ramrodded through Congress by the GOP Establishment Swamp working hand in hand with Democrats to betray the American Voter.

It was also...

A Trap.

Just a few days before the Omnibus was set into motion there was a fundraiser held by the National Republican Congressional Committee for the 2018 elections. President Donald J. Trump spoke at that fundraiser and explicitly told attendees what conservative's have been saying for years. The Republicans needed to move further to the right-wing on their policies; because the Democrat's were continuously moving further left. The Republican strategy of fielding "Middle Of the Road" candidates has not been, and will never be, a winning strategy. There has to be a visible ideological difference between candidates.

Looking over history the most odd aspect of the Presidency of Donald J. Trump is the Republican Party itself. Traditionally once a President has been elected; that President becomes the Defacto Leader of that party. Throughout all of my life I've witnessed Obama, Clinton, both Bushes, and Reagan be the center of their political party. Not so with President Donald J. Trump. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan have exhibited behavior that indicates they believe they are in charge of the Republican Party; not the President. This came to a point in a recent election when a Political Action Party attached to Paul Ryan crossed Party Lines and actively campaigned against a GOP Contender aligned with President Donald J. Trump.

So it was without any surprise that the GOP Establishment Swamp quickly came up with a plan to get back at President Donald J. Trump for telling them to get out of the middle of the road. The plan was simple in it's implementation. The GOP Establishment Swamp would work with Democrat's to craft a budget bill stuffed with all the pork the Democrat's wanted; none of the funding that US Citizens voted for in 2016; and carrying numerous amendment riders that flew in direct violation of the ideologies already litigated upon and decided against in the 2016 elections. The Omnibus Bill would also be given an aggressively short time between introduction and voting to ensure that no members of Congress would be able to adequately examine or debate on the bill. To make the bill plausible though; it would also substantially fund the US Military.

The GOP Establishment Swamp knew for a fact, in their own minds, that President Trump would never sign such a bill. President Trump would never sign a bill that ran contrary to everything that Candidate Trump had campaigned on. There were no conditions in which President Trump would risk the ire of his voting base. There were no circumstances in which the bill would not be vetoed.

Thus; the trap was set.

As soon as President Trump vetoed the bill; which he would; the GOP Establishment Swamp would immediately use the Veto as Proof that President Trump was not willing to sign ANY bipartisan legislation; and thus that President Trump was LYING about making a deal on DACA or Self Defense Regulations. Furthermore; the GOP Establishment Swamp would then also be positioned to claim that President Trump was lying about supporting the Military.

Except... that didn't happen.

President Trump called the GOP Establishment Swamp's bluff.

Why Call The Bluff? National Security?

What the GOP Establishment Swamp hadn't counted on was two factors.

The first factor was the replacement of GOP Establishment Swamp Ally McMaster with the WarHawk Ambassador John Bolton. With McMaster in place the GOP Establishment Swamp had a fairly reliable ally who would inform President Trump that the US was already in possession of the most advanced weaponry and that Military funding could wait. With Bolton; that distraction went down hard.

I realize that there are a significant number of people who have issues with Ambassador John Bolton; and I do have to admit that many of those issues are perhaps significant enough to warrant a separate discussion. That being said; I do believe that Ambassador Bolton has an accurate grasp of the reality of the National Security of the United States. I do believe that Ambassador Bolton has an accurate grasp of the reality of the National Security of the Allies and Trade Partners of the United States.

It is my opinion that Ambassador Bolton sees China as an increasingly aggressive world player that may be at the point of opening an attack against Taiwan. It is my opinion that Ambassador Bolton views North Korea as a ticking time bomb where the biggest danger isn't necessarily an attack by the North Koreans; but a distribution of North Korean resources to terrorists and dictatorships. So on down the list it goes to Russian and Iran. The Clinton and Obama pacification and appeasement has not been working. Case in point; Putin is now claiming that Russia has a hyper-sonic missile that can get past the Patriot Missile Defense Network. I don't believe Putin is crazy enough to actually throw the first punch... but traditional Russian Weapons Nation Customers such as Iran or Turkey? Yes. Oh so yes.

Just to drive this point home; we know for an established fact now that members of the Obama Administration were reaching out to leaders of nations and groups that Obama engaged in appeasement with after the 2016 election. We know for an established fact that these nations and groups were told to be patient and resist Trump. We also know for an established fact that the reason the Obama Administration members gave for resisting Trump is that those members of Obama Administration flat told the leaders of those nations and groups that Trump would be impeached within a calendar year.

Think about that for a second. Some of the most unstable dictators and terrorists in the world have had Democrats shouting in their ears for over a calendar year to just wait until those Democrats had removed Trump from office. With the FBI's "Insurance Policy" crashing down; with the House Of Representative's Investigation finding zero collusion; with the wave of emails and texts clearly showing that the Obama Administration was the most corrupt Administration in the history of the United States... with all of that... does anybody really think that the collection of unstable dictators and terrorists appeased by the Obama Administration are just going to... sing KumBaYa... attach daisy flowers to their turbans... sit and smoke a peace pipe? Really?

It is with a realistic view of the threats arrayed against the United States; the allies of the United States; and the trading partners of the United States; that I believe Ambassador Bolton likely advised President Trump that funding the military couldn't wait. Research and Design programs needed to be cranked back up; facilities needed to be repaired; in-service equipment needed to be overhauled; and Soldiers needed to start being paid what they were worth for their service.

Why Call the Buff? The Long Game?

The second factor that the GOP Establishment Swamp had not counted on is that President Trump is very good at playing a long game. The vast expanse of President Trump's real estate assets weren't built on short-tail economic practices. Winery's and Hotels are business's that have to be constructed to last decades; if not generations.

When playing a long game it sometimes becomes required to, well, take one for the team. Vetoing the Omnibus bill would delight the vast majority of legally voting American Citizens for the moment. How would that veto play in the November elections though?

How would the GOP Establishment Swamp spin the veto? Would they, as already noted, use a veto to claim that President Trump was not actually open to bipartisan deals? Would they use the veto to indicate that President Trump was not actually willing to fund the military?

More importantly; how would it affect the political party of the Democrats? With a vast majority of legal voting American Citizens against the Omnibus; sending the collection of bills rolled up into the Omnibus back to Congress would only give legal voters time to express their displeasure. Politicians who ride polls for each and every decision would undoubtedly abandon an attempt to force a 2/3 majority override of the veto. Various bills would be sent back to committee; and a number of the pork projects that Liberal Democrats want would likely never be able to pass a future congress.

Who Would Those Liberal Democrat's Blame?

The obvious answer is: Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.

Both DNC leaders are currently fighting to maintain their control and grip over the various members of the DNC. A veto of the Omnibus would have only strengthened the positions of elected Democrat's like Conor Lamb who ran on Anti-Pelosi platforms.

While disarray in the DNC might be seen as a good thing; the reality is that Pelosi and Schumer keep pushing the DNC further and further leftward. Removing their influence could, in theory, allow the Democratic Party to actually go through a resurgence and reclaim disenchanted and disillusioned voters. Which is a bad thing to have happen.

That's the long game that I think President Trump had in mind.

Bait. Set. Hook. Game. Wait, Who Won?

By signing the Omnibus bill President Trump stepped square into the trap set by the GOP Establishment Swamp; performing the exact action the GOP Establishment Swamp had never considered President Trump could actually commit. President Trump ticked off his supporters.

Deliberately.

The fallout was immediate across many of the sources I keep track of. Press Releases were cancelled, emergency meetings were called, and memos circulated like wildfires. Collectively; the winners of the Omnibus bill weren't acting like winners.

DNC Agitators had lost their public relations victory by the very act of President Trump signing an ostensibly bipartisan piece of legislation. Far from being able to present a President who was unwilling to deal; DNC Agitators found themselves once again called out for their own refusal to deal on subjects the DNC Agitators had previously said they were willing to fight for. Need I remind readers of how DNC Agitators turned and ran from DACA once it suddenly became a possibility that one of the most despised over-reaches of power in the Obama Administration could actually go through a proper legislative process?

Active members of the DNC Resistance against Pelosi and Schumer were likewise engaged in twiddling their thumbs and looking morosely at each other. The sheer amount of pork brought home by the dynamic duo once again made the Pelosi and Schumer leadership ticket untouchable in the eyes of DNC donors. Far from fragmenting the DNC and creating an environment in which Anti-Pelosi tickets could attract big-donor-backers; the DNC has once against found itself in a position where donors will once again only back candidates who have the approval of Pelosi and Schumer.

The GOP Establishment Swamp found their names inextricably tied to one of the worst fiscal bills in the history of the United States. They had placed all their eggs in the basket with a presidential veto. Like DNC Agitators the planned propaganda had vanished with the swish of a pen. Instead of planting a target on President Trump; the GOP Establishment Swamp found themselves directly in the path of outraged voters.

From what I observed the DNC Agitators, Anti-Pelosi contingent, and GOP Establishment Swamp were at a complete loss of what to do in the wake of the Omnibus signing.

President Trump's supporters knew exactly what to do.

Typically in election history the party that takes the Presidential Slot looses congressional seats in the subsequent 2 year elections. There are any number of theories as to why this is so; but the dominant factor is likely voter engagement. The loosing party in an election, if they intend to run again, typically take some time to figure out who they didn't appeal to, why they didn't appeal to those voters, and what can be done to be made appealing to those voters. Ergo the loosing party does not stop engaging with voters and thus keep a running momentum.

The winning party, however, doesn't really see a need to change their approach. They won. If things don't go so well in the years between elections; then the re-election campaign is all about blaming somebody else for things going bad. If things went well, the re-election campaign is all about keeping things at the status-quo. Ergo; the winning party can stop engaging with voters and the momentum of winning is lost.

With a dramatically successful 2017 under President Trump's belt; it's very easy to imagine the Trump Supporter base sitting back on it's laurels. The economy is moving again; the Obama Era Regulations are biting the dust; taxes have been lowered; and paychecks are going up. Across 2015 and 2016 the Trump Supporters were fighting for their very livelihoods; fighting to take back control from an openly corrupt administration.

In 2018? Everything's fine? What's to worry or panic about?

Then President Trump tossed a hand grenade into his supporter base.

As the day wore on I tracked a number of potential candidates for congressional seats nationwide taking stances on what they would repeal from the Omnibus if they were elected to office; taking stances on approving President Trump's request for Line-Item-Veto's of passed legislation; and openly committing to helping President Trump's aim to Make America Great Again by preventing such an abuse of legislative rail-roading by getting into office and forcing Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan out of their offices.

Within hours of the signing of the Omnibus bill; the voting base that carried President Trump into office in the face of a hostile purchased media, a rigged election, and a mandated coronation was in a full-blooded red-tilt frenzy. From what I tracked donations to #MAGA candidates soared as legal US Voters dug into their pockets to help elect representatives who would fight against the DNC and GOP Establishment Swamp.

In Total

By signing the Omnibus bill President Trump managed to pull off an exceptional series of subsequent actions.

President Trump managed to ensure that Pelosi and Schumer retained their top positions in DNC Leadership; ensuring that DNC candidates in November would be cut from the same cloth that Legal US Voters abhor.

President Trump managed to nail the GOP Establishment Swamp into taking specific voting positions on everything from Gun Control to Planned Parenthood that are deeply unpopular with Legal US Voters. Now the GOP Establishment Swamp will have to answer for their votes at the election poll; instead of being let off the hook by a veto.

President Trump managed to reignite the fire and passion in his base. Some might argue the fire and passion never went away; but the ripples of candidates saying "Never another Omnibus" went from shore to shore.

President Trump managed to fund the military. After years of being turned into a giant social experiment by an openly corrupt administration there is much work to be done to once again establish the US Military as the one force other nations can turn to for help and security.

Was all that worth another round of deficit spending; ticked off voters; and fulfilling pork projects voters already said no to?

I'm thinking... Yes.

I do think President Trump made the right decision; both in the military aspect; and the aspect of what will happen come the November elections.

Let me say this as clearly as possible.

This is not #MurkyPolitics

The #NunesMemo documents facts in which the chain of events show that #HillaryClinton #Paid for the #SteeleDossier

The #ObamaAdminstration knew that the #SteeleDossier was #Fiction

The #ObamaAdministration went before #FISA courts not once, but FOUR different times with a #FictionalDocument

#FictionForFISA is not just #OpenCorruption

Using #FictionForFISA also falls under the strict standards of #Perjury

Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Comey, Sally Yates, all the leadership of the Clinton Campaign, all of the appointed officials within the FBI and DOJ under Obama... Every single one of them was aware they were using #FictionForFISA

There is no way to spin this.

There is no way to undo this.

Whether or not #FictionForFISA counts as #Treason under US Law I am unsure of; but it likely does count as #Sedition

Here's a #MurkyPolitics #LikeHellThisIsMurky aimed straight at +Sundar Pichai

Sundar: You #ScrewedUp when you fired #JamesDamore

It is still not too late to fix your #Mistake and fire the executives who have turned Google into a bastion of Liberal Ideology that's more concerned with fostering Social Justice Warrior workshops than creating Cool Technology.

Let me put this in perspective. A couple years back Google had this great I/O conference where #GoogleGlass got shown off... by having people skydive in order to hand off the prototypes. It was a truly awesome practical demonstration of what Google was capable of achieving; from a company that took tech creation seriously.

Then after that? Hasn't been anything since. Google's turned into Apple; just going through product motions; releasing new products that have no impact. Android 7 is nice; but where are the tablet's using USB+DisplayPort to function as both a tablet computer and a display? Where's the hooking of a 10" or 12" Android Tablet up to a PS4 and being able to hard-core game... while still getting all of the Android OS goodies with a hardware overlay? Where's something that is actually spectacular, mind blowing, and has real-world usage implications?

I already know the answer. You, Sundar, have a legion of vice president's and executive manager's who aren't concerned with making great tech; who aren't concerned with hiring people who want to work; who aren't concerned with actual results.

What you have, Sundar, is a legion of VP's and Executives who are more interested in making sure that they fulfill some random checklist of international hires; non-Caucasian hires; female hires; trans hires; homosexual hires; using all sorts of such employment filters to hire people who fill an ideological mandate rather than a mandate to actually do a job. So instead of getting the best possible employee you can get for any specific task; Google winds up getting whoever fit whatever ideological mandate the hiring manager had in mind.

You finally have somebody in James Damore who has the guts to bring up just how much the Liberal Ideology mindset is harming Google... and you #FIRE him?

Seriously?

Sundar; you're not Tim Cook. You're not Larry Ellison. You're not Steve Ballmer.

You're supposed to be smarter than them.

There's no way around it Sundar; but you've got a Legion of cleaning up to do; and everybody who filed a complaint against James Damore... that's your list of people to show to your door.

Whether or not you have the personal guts to turn Google around and recover is entirely up to you.

Since I just pushed a multiple paragraph response a thread by SJVN to the #RedShirt #Trump meme... here's the response on it's own for #MurkyPolitics ::

I kind of wanted to weigh in on this particular meme. We, as in the US Voter, didn't hear anything of the personnel changes of Obama's White House. I couldn't tell you who the White House Chief of Staff was, who the communications director was, who the press guy was, who the chef was, who the liaison to the chef was... and so on and so forth. Obama's Administration was the most opaque administration in the history of US President's; rivaling tyrannies and actual dictatorships for sheer hostility to public requests for information.

However; these hires and fires of the Trump Administration have somehow become front page news. Some of it is deserved; such as the controversy surrounding Mooch. All the way up until he lost it Mooch came across as a pretty good guy to have on the team. He had a powerful story about growing up and how he would not insult his father by even insinuating that the family grew up poor; and he was well known for getting things done. As pointed out by a number of people; people outside the White House didn't learn that Mooch had been fired until the White House press actually made the announcement; crushing the credibility of any left-wingers still saying they had sources of some kind... and also showing that despite his loose lips and powermad psychosis... Mooch had successfully completed at one task he had been assigned; stop the leaks.

There seems to be a mentality out there that once people have landed a job; their job is safe. There isn't anybody else out there willing to do that same job even better for less money. Call it a union mentality; the California Employment Mentality; or whatever... but simply landing a job isn't a free pass to keeping that job.

Obama had one of the worst run administration's of all time; of all countries; and people like Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, and Lois Lerner who have all confessed to various crimes ranging from deliberate fraud, to participating in Pay2Play, to flat out ignoring established law by committing espionage, to persecuting civilians who held different political or religious beliefs, to simply displaying gross incompetence... all somehow kept their various jobs in places under the Obama Administration. To date; none are serving hard time yet; which is a damning indictment of the Jeff Sessions run DOJ. Hillary, Eric, and Lois should have been in handcuffs awaiting trials within hours of his taking office... not months.

So... it is indeed a shock to see a President.. ANY President... who comes along and starts hiring or firing employees of the administration based on performance. This is not something that American's have witnessed since the time of Reagan... and that means that a significant number of eligible voters today; and those coming of voting in 2018; simply aren't old enough to remember a time when job performance meant that somebody in the White House kept their job... rather than when simple political loyalty and like-minded ideology was enough to keep people rolling in cash.

Quite frankly it's insulting to both Star Trek and the White House to link performance-based metrics to the Red Shirt Meme.

Years ago I would have described myself as an Audiophile; with more money invested in amps and speakers than went into visiting Six Flags every summer. While I spend significantly more time these days just paying down medical bills; doesn't mean I stopped keeping an eye on quote/unquote "Audiophile" products.

Since I'm still steadily going blind in one eye; and the other definitely in contention for loss as well; I've been taking quite a bit of solace in just listening to music on my admittedly aging Velodyne reference headphones. I've always wanted a Planar Magnetic Headset... just for the... how shall I say... how shall I say... desire to have one. So when I see one pop up for under $200... I'm at least going to tilt my head. When I see one pop up for under $180 I'm going to take a closer look.

When I see a Planar Magnetic with a $170(US) price-point from a brand I've not just actually heard of; but have encountered in the past; I'm going to start rethinking how much mac'n'cheese I can get away with eating to scrape enough pennies together to buy a set.

And... there is one: http://dro.ps/b/tZxSj9p/l

I'm not entirely sold on the whole #MassdropMade tagline... or just #Massdrop as a vendor in general... the audio section of their site was filled with various cheap Chinese earbuds being offered as In-Ear-Monitors... but $170 for a HifiMan Planar Magnetic Headset based on the HE400 series?

That looks like it could be well worth the risk.

... I played the first Destiny a lot... and I really did want the special edition PS4 Console. Just... well... medical bills prevented that from happening.

So queue up #Destiny2 and another special edition PS4. Time for +Sony / +PlayStation to wow with new exclusive artwork... right?

#Wrong

Whoever did the #Destiny2 special edition controller and console design should be fired.

There isn't really enough time for +Bungie to work with Sony and +Activision, Inc (assuming correct account?) to stop the production of this design disaster and come up with something that isn't an insult to the effort that was lavished on the promotional designs for the first game.
