Hot Topic is known amongst artist groups as one of the worst offenders of art theft in U.S. retailers. I know artists are important to What Pumpkin, and I’d imagine multiple cases of art theft would be a very big deal. The most well-known of the cases were stolen fan art from independent artists, which is the same demographic the Design Contest was aimed to.  I’m an artist myself and I wouldn’t want to support a store that steals from my peers.

The people running Hot Topic have zero respect to artists and to copyright law. They’ve been ripping-off independent artists’ storefronts, and continue do so. The whole company really should have been shut down long ago.

If you support artists, independent, fan artist, or any kind, you should oppose Hot Topic and MSPA’s association with them!

Tell What Pumpkin to kick Hot Topic out of the Design contest RIGHT NOW.

We have so little time left to stop this please tell them that it is completely unacceptable to do any sort of business with petty art thieves.

Even if you don’t know what to say, or if you think it would compromise the contestants; It won’t. Just please voice your thoughts in anyway you can put them. Don’t let Hot Topic get a dime out of Homestuck.

Why Greninja?

I don’t have anything against Greninja, I even picked Froakie as my starter. But, why is Greninja being put in the new Super Smash Bros? Do they feel some obligation to put him in because one of them is going to be on the 3DS? To appease fans of the sixth gen? Why didn’t they do this with previous generations when their games were on the Wii or Gamecube?

It doesn’t make sense.  Greninja is new to the Pokemon community and such an arbitrary choice that I feel like they’re just shoe-horning him in to take advantage of the Pokemon X and Y hype.

It’s kind of stupid, but I will say at least it’s not Fennekin.

Game Developers Video / Anita’s Kickstarter / Stolen Footage / Stolen Artwork / Anita Sarkeesian “I’m not a fan of video games”

AND THIS IS WHY I DESPISE ANITA SARKEESIAN’S CON-ARTIST, FRAUDULENT ASS.

I loathe Feminism as well but her attacks on video games are trite. Bitch needs to fall back.

Games definitely need feminism, but not this walking pile of scam artist trash.

I have bronchitis. Thanks to the ACA, I was able to get medicine for $0. #ThanksObama

LIES.
that came from taxes I paid.

Well, let my know how much I owe you and I’ll drop a few pennies in the mail. War comes from taxes you paid, and I personally dislike the amount I pay going for that… Maybe we should check “yes” or “no” on our 1040 forms this year for allocation of tax dollars.
I’m sorry you think I’m lying, but I’m not. I qualified for the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, which is partially funded through taxpayer revenue. I don’t think the IRS mailed you a letter saying, “Nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah! This year’s tax dollars went to pay for medicine for poor people mwahahaha!” Who knows? Maybe YOUR portion of tax dollars went to a Hellfire missile that took out a village in Afghanistan. Ooh, how exciting for you!
Comfort yourself with that thought as I use my inhaler, which I would not have been able to afford without the ACA.



#gonna need obamacare to afford treatment for that burn jackass

what the fuck is wrong with Americans who aren’t on board with free healthcare. I’m Canadian and I don’t care that I pay extra taxes so a little boy in Alberta can have open heart surgery, or an elderly man in Nova Scotia can get the heart medication he desperately needs. It’s called taking care of your people. I’m glad I pay so that people can have a good quality of life. It’s called being a decent fucking human being.

You know this makes me SO ANGRY BECAUSE NOT EVERYONE CAN REAP THE POSITIVE BENEFITS OF OBAMACARE.
I’m sidelined from work due to a work-related injury I’ve been dealing with for two years.  My employers have denied me unemployment, if I were to go back to work prior to some court proceedings and assistance from my lawyer I would have entirely lost my benefits granted to me from the state I live in.
I’ve been out of work since September, but due to some technicalities and my employer ignoring procedures and protocol I was forced into signing a document for fear of “resigning” my job — not being terminated — resignation, which would also cancel my benefits because if I quit then out it fucking goes.  Basically it boils down to that I am still technically employed there but from a legal standpoint I cannot work there.
At the end of March I was informed that I would have to sign up for a new medical insurance (because the one at my job was nulled due to not rolling over my benefits on the New Year because I could not pay for it because I — you guessed it — HAD NO INCOME.)
So I still have no income and sadly I’m having to rely on someone else to help me scrape by a living.  But that still doesn’t stop our wonderful President from forcing me to get health care.  So, of course the insurance I’m eligible for was based on my Federal Tax Return from 2012-2013 and on paper I’m still employed at my old job so naturally there’s nothing stopping them from assuming I’m still making the same amount of money even though I cannot actually get any money.
As a result I’m having to pay $144/month that I DON’T HAVE thanks to Obamacare.
So yeah, good for you that you can reap the positive benefits of it.  All it’s doing to me is forcing me further into debt.
I don’t want MY taxpayer money going to a program shoving me deeper into a financial deficit.  So fuck you.
