Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

Hahaha!  I thought the same thing except Baraka Obama Vs. John McKano XD

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

I would have went for John McKano myself, I think Kano is a little closer to McCain than Cage but I guess its a tossup given that his first name is John....

SOLIDUS!!!!!

Fuck that! You give me John McCain as Solidus Snake, then I'll be impressed!

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

As slow as the weekend may be, it's still nice to get a humorous update like this every once in awhile. I think so, anyway.

Being a regular reader of Dueling Analogs, I already saw this... but I still think it's funny; Steve Napeirski was right about not being the only to think "Baraka" upon hearing Obama's name. Now if only he had those arm blades...

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

Yep, it's a slow day. But can you blame GP? It's the weekend, nothing big happens in the weekend that effects gaming, we wait for our workdays from Monday to Friday to get the stories rolling. Damn weekends...

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

Saw it a while ago. Slow day is awesomely slow.

JACK!

Maybe Jack will post an unrelated comment that offends everybody. That'll liven things up.

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

Umm guys, that's not Baraka they put Obama's head on its Maskless Sub-Zero

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

There's another little problem with that, namely the fact that Sub-Zero wears... what's it called...

oh yeah. BLUE.

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

Note the blades protrudting from the forearms and the lack of blue o nthe uniform. It's Baraka.

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

As soon has i heard Barack i thought Baraka

MORTAL KOMBAT!!!!!!!

Totally! And they're so simillar, I mean, they both have amazing skill in Pencack Silat, and they both have deadly blades that pop out of their arms!

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

AWESOME! I was hoping someone would do Baraka Obama!

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

Matthew Wilsonthe thing is unions earned their bad reputation in the US. the way unions oparate the better at your job you are, the likely you want to be in a union.07/07/2015 - 11:33am
InfophilePut that way, "right to work" seems to have BLEEP-all to do with gay rights. Thing is, union-negotiated contracts used to be one of the key ways to prevent employers from firing at will. Without union protection, nothing stops at-will firing.07/07/2015 - 11:06am
Infophilehas an incentive to pay dues if they're represented either way, so the union is starved for funds and dies, unless things are bad enough that people will pay dues anyway.07/07/2015 - 11:02am
InfophileFor those who don't know, "right to work" laws mean that it can't be a condition of an employment contract that you pay union dues. That is, the right to work without having to pay dues. Catch is, unions have to represent non-members as well, so no one...07/07/2015 - 11:01am
MechaCrashUnexpected? Seriously?07/07/2015 - 10:55am
Mattsworknamejob they wanted without the unions getting involved. The problem is, it has some unexpected side effects, like the ones Info mentioned07/07/2015 - 8:49am
MattsworknameThe problem being, right to work states exsist specificly as a counter to Unions, as the last 20 or so years have shown, the unions have been doing this countries economoy NO favors. The right to work states came into being to allow people to work any07/07/2015 - 8:49am
Infophile(cont'd) discriminatory. This can only be done for protected classes which are outlined in law (race, sex, religion, ethnicity everywhere, sexual orientation in some states). So, a gay person could be fired because they're gay and have no recourse there.07/07/2015 - 7:27am
Infophile@Goth: See here: http://www.snopes.com/politics/sexuality/firedforbeinggay.asp for a good discussion on it. Basically, the problem is that in the US, most states allow at will firing, and it's the burden of the fired person to prove the firing was ...07/07/2015 - 7:25am
Goth_SkunkAssuming that's true, then that is a fight worth fighting for.07/07/2015 - 6:58am
Yuuri@ Goth_Skunk, in many states being gay is not a protected status akin to say race or religion. It's also in the "Right to work" states. Those are the states where one can be fired for any reason (provided it isn't a "protected" one.)07/07/2015 - 6:07am
Goth_Skunkregarded as a beacon of liberty and freedom that is the envy of the world, would not have across-the-board Human Rights laws that don't at the very least equal those of my own country.07/07/2015 - 5:47am
Goth_SkunkI find that hard to believe, Infophile. I have difficulty believing employers can *still* fire people for being gay. I would need to see some evidence that this is fact, because as a Canadian, I can't believe that the United States,07/07/2015 - 5:46am
InfophileFor that matter, even women don't yet have full legal equality with men. The US government still places limits on the positions women can serve in the military. And that's just the legal side of things - the "culture wars" are more than just laws.07/07/2015 - 5:43am
InfophileAnd that's just LGB issues. Get ready for an incoming battle on rights for trans* people. And then after that, a battle for poly people.07/07/2015 - 5:41am
InfophileA battle's been won. In many states employers can still fire people for being gay. And in many states, parents can force their children into reparative therapy to try to "fix" being gay. Those battles still need to be fought.07/07/2015 - 5:40am
Goth_Skunkand now they've switched to battles that don't need to be fought.07/07/2015 - 5:37am
Goth_SkunkIn my opinion, it was the final legal hurdle denying homosexual couples final and recognized statuses as eligible spouses. But even though this war's been won, some people are still too keen to keep fighting battles,07/07/2015 - 5:28am
Goth_SkunkAnd it's a trend I don't mind seeing continue. Same-sex marriage was at long-last made definitively legal by SCOTUS, and it's about time. I'm glad it's finally happened, as it was desperately needed.07/07/2015 - 5:25am
Infophile(cont'd) It started long before that. Perhaps the American Civil War comes to mind?)07/07/2015 - 3:59am
