It's kind of funny when people talk about the Canadian military. Most people don't realize that the last time America and Canada got into a war during the American Revolutionary War Canada actually kept the American military out. 
 
As far as National Health-care goes I'm quite fine with it. Most sources I have heard from say it will lower the National Debit. Certainly there are a lot of obstacles, and I think many people are grossly uninformed and misinformed by the bill and the abortion issue is taking a far too prominent role in the debate than it needs to be. Why someone would place precedence of someone who hasn't shown any potential and isn't born yet and wouldn't care about making well a productive member of society is beyond me. Honestly I find it quite disgusting.

I doubt Blu-Ray will be dominating any time soon. Most people don't have high-def TVs, 97% of sales are DVD, and the difference between DVD and Blu-Ray is less than that of VHS and DVD, thus making people wonder why they want to spend money on a $300 Blu-Ray player when the movies are even more expensive than your typical DVD.

MechWarrior 2 and Sim City 2000. Both Great Games

I agree. I think genres go in cycles. Tycoon games,  beat-'em ups, and Spaceship simulators, like X-Wing and Freespace, all used to be extremely popular. Now, you can hardly find any new games for those genres being made. Will 1st person shooters do this? Probably not, I think that shooters instead go through theme shifts. Currently it seems that there are a lot of 1st person shooter stories that deal with invading aliens right now, which seems to make the entire genre tired. Although before the aliens it was Nazis and world war II. Now there seems to be very few World War II games. I imagine that after aliens there will be a big game, maybe the Soviet Union or WWI, that will cause the entire genre to shift toward doing games like that. That's my two cents.

Mostly because I didn't like the reviews after the Gamespot.com had its. . . issues.

Personally, I enjoyed them. They were very hard.
