I think I'd rather set $10 on fire than buy this.
What's up with all these shoddy, absolutely no effort, PC ports lately?
Well, crappy ports are nothing new, but you'll notice that the really bad recent ports (Dark Souls and FFVII) both came from Japanese developers. The PC gaming market in Japan is almost non-existant, unless you count visual novels/eroges as games. As a result, Japanese devs tend to not take PC versions of their games seriously, if they even bother to make a PC version at all.
Hell, American developers do this too, albeit it to a much lesser extent. It's no coincidence that a lot of the highest quality PC games these days come from developers in countries where PC is the main gaming platform (see: Witcher 2, STALKER, Metro 2033, Crysis).
Of course the people playing CS1.6 are still playing CS1.6. They're just like the people still playing UT2K4 and Quake III Arena. They got good at that one game and refuse to move on to a game that is the least bit unfamiliar because they can't tolerate not having an intimate knowledge of a game's trivial nuances and glitches/exploits (which, ironically, these so-called "hardcore pros" believe are legitimate gameplay tactics). More importantly, they can't stand having to go back to being an average player instead of someone who can play a game on autopilot and still land at the top of the leaderboard. Their excuse for not migrating to the newest game in the franchise (or any other game for that matter) is that it's "not hardcore enough".
The people playing CS1.6 will play CS1.6 for as long as there are still servers up for it. They will never migrate to a new game until then, and when they finally do they'll **** and moan the entire time, assuming they even go back to gaming after their favorite (only) game becomes unplayable.
tl;dr - CS1.6 players are autistic.
Somebody mind giving me the tl;dr version?
Individual mandate upheld as a tax, meaning that while you aren't forced to buy healthcare insurance, you will face a tax if you don't have healthcare insurance. Pretty much everything else in the bill was upheld (I think there was something about medicare that wasn't but don't remember).There's more to it than that, it is now a tax, however the Government doesn't have the right to take all of the medicare money from the states. Also, iirc, states now have the right to choose whether or not they want to participate in Obamacare. In other words, conservative states won't go for it, liberals will.
On top of that, even though Obamacare is a tax now, the IRS has no authority to garnish your wages or impose any other type of punishment if you fail to pay the fine. So, if I for example don't pay the fine, nothing will happen to me. I will get free healthcare without needing to pay into it. Basically it will bankrupt the system because there is no incentive for people to pay into it.Are you a child? I only ask because yo seem to have never paid taxes before. If you don't pay your taxes, the IRS will audit you (not fun), garnish your wages, take you to court, and either seize your property or throw you in prison (or all of the above). I can't think of a reason why you would have believed they can't do any of these things seeing as how they do them all the time. Also, the states only have the choice in not complying when it comes to medicaid expansions. However, since the government is paying 100% of the tab for those expansions (which will eventually go down to 90%) there's no reason why a state wouldn't choose to comply.
