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.

Infophile@Matt: Apparently Dan Aykroyd actually is involved. We don't know how yet, though, but he's apparently going to be in the movie in some way.08/02/2015 - 4:17am
MattsworknameI still hold that not having the origonal cast invovled in any way hurts this movie, and unless the 4 actresses in the lead roles can some how measure up to the comic timing of the origonal cast, i just don't see it being a success08/02/2015 - 12:46am
MattsworknameMecha: regardless of what you think of it, GB 2 was a finanical success and for it time did well with audiances ,even if it wasnt as popular as the first08/02/2015 - 12:45am
MechaTama31I think they're better off trying to do something different, than trying to be exactly the same and having every little difference held up as a shortcoming. Uncanny valley.08/01/2015 - 11:57pm
MechaTama31Having the original cast didn't do much for... that pink-slimed atrocity which we must never speak of.08/01/2015 - 11:56pm
MattsworknameAndrew: If the new ghostbusters bombs, I cant help but feel it'll be cause it removed the origonal cast and changed the formula to much08/01/2015 - 8:31pm

MattsworknameNomad colossus did a little video about it, showing the world and what can be explored in it's current form. It's worth a look, and he uses text for commentary as not to break the immerison08/01/2015 - 5:49pm
MattsworknameI feel some more mobility would have made it more interesting and I feel that a larger more diverse landscape with better graphiscs would help, but as a concept, it interests me08/01/2015 - 5:48pm
Andrew EisenHuh. I guess I'll have to check out a Let's Play to get a sense of the game.08/01/2015 - 5:47pm
MattsworknameIt did, I found the idea of exploring a world at it's end, exploring the abandoned city of a disappeared alien race and the planets various knooks and crannies intriqued me.08/01/2015 - 5:46pm
Andrew EisenDid it appeal to you? If so, what did you find appealing?08/01/2015 - 5:43pm
MattsworknameIts an interesting concept, but it's not gonna appeal to everyone thats for sure,08/01/2015 - 5:40pm
Andrew EisenThat sounds horrifically boring. Doesn't sound like an interesting use of its time dilation premise either. 08/01/2015 - 5:36pm
Mattsworknamean observer , seeing this sorta frozen world and being able to explore without any restriction other then time. no enimes, no threats, just the chance to explore08/01/2015 - 5:34pm
MattsworknameAndrew: I meant lifeless planet, Time frame is an exploration game. Your dropped onto a world which is gonna be hit by a metor in 10 seconds, but due to time dilation ,you actually have ten minutes, so you can explore the world, in it's last moments, as08/01/2015 - 5:32pm
