hey they're just spreading the Christmas cheer I actually like seeing these.

Re: GameTap Holiday Wishes...

If there's no news happening, why don't you just make some stuff up and report it?

Re: GameTap Holiday Wishes...

It was a shock today when we found out that EA executives joined in a pile naked reenacting South Park Episode 118 'Goobacks'.  The cause of these actions seem to be them trying to gain more attention as people are still pissed off at them for SecuROM.  Local police quickly apprehended the executives and arrested them for public indecency, and can be imprisoned for up to 2 years.

In other news, Sony and Microsoft have went belly up, and are filing for bankruptcy.  Rumors quickly started that SEGA is going to make a new console now that Nintendo is the only competitor.

Remaining employees at EA decided to try to help their image after their executives typical disgraceful acts, and made Spore and Madden 09 free to everyone online for download at EA's online store.

With the activity at EA, Ubisoft and Activision decided to compete with them by making Prince of Persia and Azada 2 free online, respectively.  Problem is, hardly anyone knows what the hell Azada 2 is, and are wondering what the hell.

Meanwhile, 4 children went to the back of a Walmart in Maine today and broke a mirror to destroy the Walmart store, successfully I might add.  This form of violence was said to be caused by GTA.  Government appointed 'Experts' say they can prove GTA is the cause, though no logical human can even consider the fact from the bullshit foaming out of their mouths.

In Australia, the government allowed an R18 rating, then 5 minutes later abolished it.  Gamers protested, and burned down government buildings.  US 'experts' believe this was caused by GTA as well.

G4TV reports that these 'experts' are fucking morons, and will have more on this story on Monday in the Loop.

A violent killing happened in Germany, US 'experts' once again blame it on GTA.  German police blame it on abusive  and neglectful parents that were not part of their children's lives.  When investigating the parents, they found illegal substances on them, and have been put in jail with their teen sons.

Infophile(cont'd) about non-union police officers being given hell until they joined the union.07/07/2015 - 4:58pm
InfophileParadoxically, the drive in the US to get rid of unions seems to have left only the most corrupt surviving. They seem to be the only ones that can find ways to browbeat employees into joining when paying dues isn't mandatory. I've heard some stories ...07/07/2015 - 4:57pm
Matthew WilsonI am old school on this. I believe its a conflict of interest to have public sector unions. that being said, I do not have a positive look on unions in general.07/07/2015 - 3:59pm
TechnogeekWhat's best for the employee tends to be good for the employer; other way around, not so much. So long as that's the case, there's going to be a far stronger incentive for management to behave in such a way that invites retalitation than for the union to.07/07/2015 - 3:10pm
TechnogeekTeachers' unions? State legislatures. UAW? Just look at GM's middle management.07/07/2015 - 3:05pm
TechnogeekIn many ways it seems that the worse a union tends to behave, the worse that the company's management has behaved in the past.07/07/2015 - 3:02pm
james_fudgeCharity starts at home ;)07/07/2015 - 2:49pm
james_fudgeSo mandatory charity? That sounds shitty to me07/07/2015 - 2:49pm
E. Zachary KnightGoth, if Union dues are automatically withdrawn, then there is no such thing as a non-union employee.07/07/2015 - 2:38pm
Goth_Skunka mutually agreed upon charity instead.07/07/2015 - 2:33pm
Goth_Skunkyou enjoy the benefits of working in a union environment. If working in a union is against your religious beliefs or just something you wholeheartedly object to, dues will still be deducted from your pay, but you can instruct that they be directed towards07/07/2015 - 2:33pm
Goth_SkunkBasically, if you are employed in a business where employees are represented by a union for the purposes of collective bargaining, whether or not you are a union member, you will have union dues deducted from your pay, since regardless of membership,07/07/2015 - 2:32pm
Goth_SkunkIt's something that has existed in Canada since 1946. You can read more on it here: http://ow.ly/PiHWR07/07/2015 - 2:27pm
Goth_SkunkSee, we have something similar in Canada, called a "Rand Employee." This is an employee who benefits from the collective bargaining efforts of a union, despite not wanting to be a part of it for whatever reason.07/07/2015 - 2:22pm
Matthew Wilson@info depends on the sector. for example, have you looked at how powerful unions are in the public sector? I will make the argument they have too much power in that sector.07/07/2015 - 12:39pm
InfophileIt's easy to worry about unions having too much power and causing harm. The odd thing is, why do people seem to worry about that more than the fact that business-owners can have too much power and do harm, particularly at a time when unions have no power?07/07/2015 - 12:31pm
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
