Donors can only donate so much according to US law and Bernie is not a billionaire like Tom Steyer or Michael Bloomberg. There are Super Pacs they can donate to but Bernie Sanders tries not to rely on big donors so he could say he’s not beholden to them. I’m not a Bernie Sanders supporter but there is a reason he’s asking for money.

No, actually donors can spend all they want. That is pretty much what Citicens United is all about, Money = speech. Also corporations are people -> corporations can donate as if they where people. Also super pacs dont have to disclose who donated money to them. So basically you guys have a system, where unknown entities, be it corporations or billionaires, can buy influence enough to to swing votes in their favor. Been doing that for over a decade.

In otherwords, it is aping a Bernie Sanders political advert in which he has asked for more political funding. Sanders wants to increase US taxes to fund a single payer healthcare system and his campaign is primarily funded by small donations, thus his fundraising rather than soliciting in private for one off large donations is instead focused around trying to convince a large number of people to give a small amount. Being with the fractured nature of US politics, depending on where you sit on the political spectrum he is either the Second Coming of Christ (or being that he… Read more »

Considering the other candidates, being “Better than the rest” is not exactly setting a high bar. I can see him geting the nomination, enough democrats lean socalist to give him a chance. I dont see him winning the general however as I think independents will flee from the prospect of a socialist president and even a good chunk of the democrats may have second thoughts. Wont get many Rep defectors, they love trump to the tune of high 90’s approval in party.

That bothers me, too. All these other, vastly less-rich countries can “afford” it, so what gives? I think it has to do with the business end of research and development – the profit motive drives capitalism (news flash lol) which drives drug and medical companies to constantly push for new advantages in the field. Other countries rarely contribute to medical development (proportionally speaking). If we stopped developing, we could knock prices of medical services way way down, and make medical care socialized. BUT then… we stopped the development…

Large swathes of our government and operations are already socialized, y’know. Tends to work well in sections of the government concerning the direct public well-being. Our Fire services, police, many utilities, etc, are all socialized. Having profit-motivated medicine is a pretty obvious conundrum, though I don’t think Bernie’s proposition is the answer, its easy to see how socializing medicine has an appeal.

Hilary wasn’t the lesser of 2 evils because the democrat establishment stole the nomination from sanders by tipping the scales so Hillary would win. That alone ensures that she was going to lose. The last election should of been sanders and trump.

If they hadn’t done that I think Bernie would be in Office right now. I am not sure the DNC will make the same mistake this time around but the current primary system by the DNC is pretty fishy. I know they made some changes to the superdelegates but we will see what the convention looks like.

In a broader sense, retail as a profession is dying out. Everything can be bought online these days. Gamestop and similar retailers need to move with the times and make their eCommerce options more accessible and sexy. For a lot of these stores, their online shopping experience feels more like an afterthought.

As for the jobs themselves, I don’t have a fix-all solution for that. The best thing I can think of is to sidestep into other, similar areas of face to face service that aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.

So true about online. We have the technology now that congress should require every online retailer to charge sales tax and send it off to correct county/state/city. Walmart, Best Buy, etc already do this because they have presence in most states and therefore it is required. This means it’s plausible. I’d hate having to pay the tax but it would help level the competition for physical locations including mom and pop shops.

Of course, selling games online _might_ work for them, but a probably significant portion of their business consists of buying used games from players and selling them again at a higher price.

And that is exactly why I don’t buy used games from those clowns. I will deliberately by a new copy of the game to ensure the developer, you know, the ones who made the game, get some revenue from it, not get cut out by them reselling used games at almost new prices. I have to wonder how significantly that affects new game sales numbers. I seriously don’t understand their business model, how do they expect to get new games to sell when they do their best to make sure the game developers can’t survive and produce new content.

Big companies like to push for internet sales tax because they can afford to set up systems to track that all, which smaller mom-and-pop internet sites can’t.

And when you buy something online and they DON’T take your taxes out, you’re supposed to report that on your Iowa tax returns so they can get their taxes then. That’s Use Tax. Clearly you don’t know how it works. The only way your state isn’t getting their cut of taxes for online sales is if you’re committing tax fraud.

Not that sales tax should exist anyway – we already have income tax. Get taxed when you make money, and get taxed again when you spend what’s left? That’s not how this should work. The government is screwing us.

@Steeeve if Businesses did not pay the taxes, then why do they collect the sales tax money? The truth of the matter is that both the customer and the Business pay the tax. Businesses set the price of the item and then factor in the sales tax since they have to pay a portion of the sale of the item/service. Customers then pay for the item/service when they get it.

A high-tier gaming hang-out, with quality games and “retro” (hate that word) stuff – also to sell! If they do this, set the prices of what they still do sell reasonably (instead of the upwards of 1000% increase over other stores) and keep it a nice place it will explode.

Earlier this week, my wife and I went to GameStop looking for Civilization VI for $15. While they were out, she did also pick up another deeply discounted game, and I grabbed a few shirts in their “buy two get one” deal, for roughly the same price as I’d spend elsewhere. I know in a lot of respects they’re a terrible company. On the other hand, growing up in the 90s means that game merch still feels magical to me, and going to a place where I can grab a Zelda T-shirt and a Snorlax pillow and a coffee press… Read more »

This guy like to poke the sleeping bear every now and again. I think he knew what to expect.

I’m going to miss my Gamestop ritual.
1: Enter gamestop
2: Browse games to discover games I’ve never heard of that look interesting
3: Make note of game titles to google later to check reviews.
4: Forget to google reviews, continue playing whatever game I’ve been playing for the last six months.

After receiving notice that my credit info MIGHT have been leaked, MONTHS after my bank caught someone in China using my credit card info (I think might have been one of the events that lead to the detection of the leak), So they took months to fess up to a security breach and then lied about how bad it was. Safe to say I haven’t shopped there since. <_< Good riddens to a company that treated PC gamers like a side note in their brick-n-morter stores.

BERNIEEEEE!

Love the comments here. I’m not a huge Bernie fan, prefer Warren. But between the two we could have a decent POTUS. He’s good in an argument – errr, debate so if he wins the nom the Presidental debates will at least be entertaining.

Man I get Gamestop had a really bad rep in the lower-48, but like they are super important up here in Alaska. Mom and pop game shops don’t really work up here because the shipping fees and Walmart’s game selection is miniscule up here. And like Amazon shipping fees are still a problem and digital isn’t feasible for most people up here as our internet sucks a lot. So what I am saying is; please support Gamestop so us here in the frozen north can still game. (I can’t even order a new PS4 controller or a wireless headset due… Read more »

I like the new concept store ideas from GameStop, actually. I have a GameStop that I always go to, and its always a blast when they convince corporate to let them use their demo units to host tournaments and stuff. I getting to play in an Injustice 2 tournament 2 hours before MK11 came out. They even sprung for pizza and everything, it was really cool.

If only they had acquired a different company that was wildly successful and killed it thinking that would help their main brand.

Oh wait….
