Barack Hussein Obama needs to stop making the news on KoopaTV. We have videogames to write about, but when the president of the United States tries to bring the world against someone (like he did with George Zimmerman), we'll write about it. 'cause it shouldn't be done. Anyway, after our article yesterday and subsequent e-mail to the White House (he hasn't replied yet, but when he does, we'll have an article on it), Obama has made a public statement attacking bloggers. See the Best of Cain counterpart article to this article for the exact quote and video.
As a matter of fact Mr. President, you have no idea what the majority of Americans sent you to Washington D.C. to do. Heck, I don't know either. We have opinion polls, but those don't tell us why people voted.
Meanwhile, lobbyists, activists, and bloggers do know why they support the things they do, and they spend a considerable amount of their time trying to influence you and let you know about the things that go on outside Washington D.C.. So regular people don't have to spend their lives doing that. In other words, a few people sacrifice their time to deal with the giant, cumbersome bureaucracy while everyone else does productive work. The activists are representative of who you're representing.
While everyone enjoys playing Madden NFL 25 (if that's possible), bloggers/activists like me can investigate what happened to the Madden Curse movie and Elizabeth Brett, and EA's cover-up. It's efficient distribution of labour.
But if you want to bash the "professional activists who benefit from conflict", why not play Trayvon Tyson's Punch-Out!!? The whole storyline of that game culminates to Little Mac fighting off someone who gets their power from aggravating conflict. Oh, and that person happens to be a close friend of yours, Mr. Barack Hussein Obama. He might even be using you for his aims.
Ludwig wants to get back to talking about games. Someone tell Obama to stop bringing Ludwig into public policy. Meanwhile, if you have anything to say, shout it in the comments! Or whisper. Or communicate in a normal voice.
