Joe the Plumber vs. Joe Sixpack, Mortal Kombat Style

October 20, 2008 -

Republican presidential candidate John McCain introduced the world to Joe the Plumber during last week's presidential debate.

His running mate, Sarah Palin was recently quoted to the effect that the time is right "that normal, Joe six-pack American is finally represented in the position of Vice Presidency..."

Now, Joe the Plumber and Joe Sixpack battle it out...

Re: Joe the Plumber vs. Joe Sixpack, Mortal Kombat Style

Like what Ashla was saying...

People who generate more than 250+ K's IN NET, NOT GROSS, will suffer the tax increase. So if your company generates more than 250K in gross but after all the other things like writing paychecks and getting whatever your company needs, your net is far less. And in that case, your income would be less than 250K and you will not suffer the tax increase. I think that's what people are confused about. Which is why some still think that most small businesses will suffer which IS NOT TRUE.

Not only that, with talks about people believing you should keep the money you earn and not have to "share the wealth" by paying higher taxes, here's something to consider: If that were true, then those failing big banks would of not gotten a bailout and the economy would have collapesed. And the United States would no longer be a world power.

I'd read up on Factcheck.org and other sites.

You may be right... you may be wrong, who am I to say such things? Find out for yourself just how full of crap *both* of them are.

Re: Joe the Plumber vs. Joe Sixpack, Mortal Kombat Style

I still can't believe the way that plumber guy got caught up in this whole mess.  The press made him public enemy #1 and its not like he pounced on Obama or anything...

Re: Joe the Plumber vs. Joe Sixpack, Mortal Kombat Style

If only he was a plumber, if only he quoted accurate figures and statistics... If only he wasn't related to people involved with the Keating 5 scandal.

 

He was a stooge from the get go.

Re: Joe the Plumber vs. Joe Sixpack, Mortal Kombat Style

And we only know that because the press decided they didn't like the question he asked Obama. 

I am also considered "rich" according to Obama, and will be targeted for his tax penalties (even though I created jobs for others).  I would have asked the same question had he approached me.  Does that mean I would be targeted by a unhappy press and have my name dragged in the mud?

Re: Joe the Plumber vs. Joe Sixpack, Mortal Kombat Style

I'm not sure what the nature of trades is in The US, but in canada, a pluber could expect to make 40k a year, not 250+

Further, the 250 k bracket comes AFTER buisness expenses; thus joe would need to be making considerably more then 250k a year in order to enter onto the new tax bracket.

Lastly: If I was making 250K a year I'd drive my tax money directly to the IRS with a smile on my face.

Re: Joe the Plumber vs. Joe Sixpack, Mortal Kombat Style

Put in the time, sacrifice, sweat, tears (not to mention headaches and other stress-related problems), and get back to me about that. 

Re: Joe the Plumber vs. Joe Sixpack, Mortal Kombat Style

 I'm so sorry for your loss.

Hmm, no, too ambiguous. How about:

 I'm so sorry for your loss.

Re: Joe the Plumber vs. Joe Sixpack, Mortal Kombat Style

  Vaguely funny, but pretty meaningless.

  The Palin quote had a bigger effect on me than the actual video.

I don't think this is quite what you wanted, is it Dennis?

Just another crappy fighter that tells nothing.

MaskedPixelanteIf by "distance themselves from Google Plus" you mean "forcing Google Plus integration in everything", then yes, they are distancing themselves from Google Plus.07/26/2014 - 12:20pm
MechaTama31I wish they would distance G+ from the Play Store, so I could leave reviews and comments again.07/26/2014 - 11:03am
Matthew Wilson@pm I doubt it. Google seems to be distancing themselves from G+07/25/2014 - 9:31pm
Papa MidnightGoogle+ Integration is coming to Twitch!07/25/2014 - 8:41pm
MaskedPixelanteThis whole Twitch thing just reeks of Google saying "You thought you could get away from us and our policies. That's adorable."07/25/2014 - 2:52pm
Sleaker@james_fudge - hopefully that's the case, but I wont hold my breath for it to happen.07/25/2014 - 1:08pm
SleakerUpdate on crytek situation is a bit ambiguous, but I'm glad they finally said something: http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2014-07-25-crytek-addresses-financial-situation07/25/2014 - 1:07pm
E. Zachary KnightMan Atlas, Why do you not want me to have any money? Why? http://www.atlus.com/tears2/07/25/2014 - 12:06pm
Matthew WilsonI agree with that07/25/2014 - 10:45am
james_fudgeI think Twitch will have more of an impact on how YouTube/Google Plus work than the other way around.07/25/2014 - 10:22am
IanCWelp, twitch is going to suck now. Thanks google.07/25/2014 - 6:30am
Sleaker@MP - Looked up hitbox, thanks.07/24/2014 - 9:40pm
Matthew WilsonI agree, but to me given other known alternatives google seems to the the best option.07/24/2014 - 6:30pm
Andrew EisenTo be clear, I have no problem with Google buying it, I'm just concerned it will make a slew of objectively, quantifiably bad changes to Twitch just as it's done with YouTube over the years.07/24/2014 - 6:28pm
Matthew WilsonI doubt yahoo has the resources to pull it off, and I not just talking about money.07/24/2014 - 6:15pm
SleakerI wouldn't have minded a Yahoo purchase, probably would have been a better deal than Tumblr seeing as they paid the same for it...07/24/2014 - 6:13pm
MaskedPixelanteIt's the golden age of Hitbox, I guess.07/24/2014 - 6:08pm
Matthew Wilsonagain twitch was going to get bought. It was just who was going to buy it . Twitch was not even being able to handle the demand, so hey needed a company with allot of infrastructure to help them. I can understand why you would not want Google to buy it .07/24/2014 - 5:49pm
Andrew Eisen"Google is better than MS or Amazon" Wow. Google, as I mentioned earlier, progressively makes almost everything worse and yet there are still two lesser options. Again, wow!07/24/2014 - 5:43pm
Andrew EisenI don't know. MS, in my experience, is about 50/50 on its products. It's either fine or it's unusable crap. Amazon, well... I've never had a problem buying anything from them but I don't use any of their products or services so I couldn't really say.07/24/2014 - 5:42pm
