Oh wow.

An old white Republican and a self righteous hipster democrat. Yep this election is TOTALLY different.

The guy who does that comic used to be a staff member on this website....

 

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

Seems like according to this that perhaps the last game McCain played would be Pac Man, which is still newer than the last game Obama has said he played with Pong. >_>

 

Either that or it's just the last game McCain heard of. <_<

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

Shouldn't Obama be asking where the ball and paddles are?

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

 Yeah, and asking where the quarters go! McCain's comment should have been more along the lines of "Where are the flippers at? TILT!"

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

Well, I believe they're using videogames as a metaphor for underachi... I mean, as a metaphor for being in touch with what's going on.

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

I see wat you did there...

Also, I think most politicians are 'out of touch' with what's going on.

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

From the linked website

"The spin of his campaign is that polls don’t matter and things are “more or less tied,” but really, is there any hope at this point?"

If McCain actually wins this thing, there's going to be a major backlash and investigation into the republicans. The numbers already showed some suspicious things in 2004, but the race was closer then. If the GOP pull a win here.... woah!

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

There is absolutely no connection to the fact gas prices are plummeting right before a Republican needs a big win.   please keep your tinfoil hats on and look the other way.

Here are we -- and yonder yawns the universe.

Nope, it is about supply and demand.  Oil prices rose on demand.  They are plummeting because people have lost lots of money in the global economic crisis and cutting back on their trips, holidays, getting more fuel efficient cars etc and so oil has had to drop.

Additionally, oil prices rose exceptionally high because of speculative investment.  People were buying up oil to sell at a higher price and it's a self fulfilling proficy.  Once they start to hit a peak and people start to sell, the speculators quickly sell up all their stock and the price comes tumbling down again.  In reality, the price should have settled at about $100/barrel but it coincided with the banking troubles and financial recession and so just kept on going.

The notion it was something to do with a conspiracy theory or Republicans trying to win an election is hillarious.

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

What does GOP stand for?

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

Grand Old Party.

Which is odd, consdidering that the Republican Party is newer than the Democrat Party.


If you go crazy then I will still call you Superman.

InfophileOn Goth's linked article: Historically speaking, there may have been cycles, but remember that the left has steadily gained ground. Is there a good reason to expect that to be different this time? (Oh, and no, Culture War 1.0 wasn't with the Baby Boomers.07/07/2015 - 3:59am
Goth_Skunk"THIS VIDEO IS PROBLEMATIC:" About Social Justice Warriors, by J.T. Sexkik. Excellent video. http://ow.ly/PgGnD07/07/2015 - 3:22am
Goth_Skunkand repeats the cycle, over and over. Presently, the far left culture is overreaching, and is about to lose their stranglehold on power.07/06/2015 - 10:01pm
Goth_SkunkAs far back as the 60's, according to the writers. The culture war moves in cycles from one generation to the next. The left rebels against the right, takes over, overreaches to the point where the right rebels right back, takes over, overreaches ->07/06/2015 - 9:58pm
MattsworknameGoth, what "Comming overreach" , the media and goverment have been overreaching for years07/06/2015 - 9:34pm
MattsworknameJim sterling is awesome ,dont always agree with him, but when it came to those guys, he was dead on. Thank god for jim.07/06/2015 - 9:33pm
Goth_Skunk"Welcome to Culture War 4.0: The Coming Overreach" an excellent opinion piece by The Federalist. http://ow.ly/Pggw507/06/2015 - 9:32pm
Wymorencehttp://goo.gl/snN00H Okay, this is hysterical if you've followed the Digital Homicide Vs. Jim "Mother****ing" Sterling stuff. A podcast of the two groups talking it out with one being eviscerated07/06/2015 - 9:12pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.engadget.com/2015/07/06/kuratas-versus-megabot-robot-duel/ ok I want to see this. not gamming related but still cool. us giant robot vs Japanese giant robot.07/06/2015 - 8:39pm
Goth_SkunkFair point.07/06/2015 - 7:56pm
Andrew EisenNo argument there.07/06/2015 - 7:46pm
Matthew Wilsonwell it would benefit Reddit to fix that asap. when of of the work on the site is done for free, there is no reason not to give them 1 of the few things they are asking for (better communications).07/06/2015 - 7:45pm
Andrew EisenRight and THAT'S what she appears to be apologizing for.07/06/2015 - 7:39pm
Matthew Wilson@AE the thing is it wasnt the firing in of it self that people got upset about, its the lack of communication. this would not be a issue if admins would just communicate more with mods.07/06/2015 - 7:39pm
Andrew EisenI don't get the sense she's apologizing for firing one of their employees. For all we know, they could have a very good reason for letting her go. But yeah, hopefully Reddit's subsequent actions speak louder than Pao's words.07/06/2015 - 7:34pm
Goth_SkunkIf Pao is directly responsible for the termination of Reddit's AMA co-ordinator, then good for her for owning up to her mistake. If she wasn't, smart business sense to take the fall. It will all be in vain though if she can't earn back the trust she lost.07/06/2015 - 7:23pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://money.cnn.com/2015/07/06/technology/reddit-back-online-ellen-pao/index.html she kinda had no choice given what happened Friday.07/06/2015 - 6:48pm
Matthew Wilson@matt dont get me wrong, I think steam is a better platform, but it does need to improve in some areas07/06/2015 - 6:48pm
MattsworknameYes, but thats only cause its actual software systems are far worse thn steam07/06/2015 - 5:56pm
