Why I need EDS' Free Points: I'm Mexican Edition

First of all, I'd like to inform you, EDS, that even though I'm Mexican, I'm elligible for the MS Points because I have a US account that I use for Rock Band DLC and other stuff.

Anyway, why do I need the free MS Points? Well, it's simple: I'm 16 years old, living in Mexico, and supporting 2 whole families with the salary of a farmboy. Ok, that last part may not be true BUT being 16 years old and living in Mexico is not the best thing to do when you're a gamer.

I'm sure you've all heard about the ridiculous markup stores apply to all electronic items in Mexico. Why? I don't know. Shipping costs, maybe (although that makes no sense due to NAFTA but whatever)? The point is: having to pay around $90 USD for the first Pikmin is a freakin' rip-off.

How does this relate to MS Points? Well, the 1600 MS Points card costs around $40 USD and seeing as how I have other things to spend my money on like, y'know, games, food, and friends, I never save enough for Wii Points or MS Points.

All this means is that I need the free MS Points to game, which is something I'm sure we can all aprove of. So give me the points or I'll slit your throat and have a lemon party at your funeral.

Seeing as how this thing is supposed to be 500 words or more, I will use the bullshit generator 2000.

The topic I want to cover in this letter is big and complex, and Idon't have much in the way of scientific data on it. Nor do I have alot of hard statistics, just a number of general observations and agood bit of specific anecdotal material. What follows is the story ofhow Mr. Paper - EDS can be so rich in the rhetoric of democracy andyet so poor in its implementation. His principles symbolizelawlessness, violence, and misguided rebellion -- extreme liberty for afew, even if the rest of us lose more than a little freedom. In hiscodices, voyeurism is witting and unremitting, purblind andexploitative. He revels in it, rolls in it, and uses it to reopenwounds that seem scarcely healed. Here, too, we can see how EDS isalways prating about how he can scare us by using big words like"indistinguishability". (He used to say that free speech is wonderfulas long as you're not bashing him and the feckless, sappy knee-bitersin his coalition, but the evidence is too contrary so he's given up onthat score.)
EDS, with his craftiness and effrontive intimations, willentirely control our country's exuberant riches some day. EDS willthen use those riches to weaken our mental and moral fiber. The moralof this story is that he does not tolerate any view that differs fromhis own. Rather, EDS discredits and discards those people whocontradict him along with the ideas that they represent.

There =D
