The Great Votetonting – 2012 United States Elections

 

Yes ladies and gentlemen today is the day (at least in the states) where we elect the president for the next four years. Now, as we all know, this year’s been a little rough because of all the commercials, debates, and name calling. Even was effected too; from little girls to our own True Backlash who swore he would punch his computer if he saw one more Mitt Romney commercial on you tube. I talked him down and said after everyone votes for  Barack Obama today everything will get back to normal.

 

I kid, I kid: the electoral process a fundamental right of all American citizens, that gives power to the people and chance to decide how their government is ran. Who they want to vote (and essentially represent them) for in the process is up to them and no man can make them do otherwise (but seriously vote Obama).  However since we won’t be able to experience this kind of madness for at least four more years here’s some of my favorite you tube  findings I’ve, well, found. Consider it a rewarded for voting today. Enjoy!

At the end of the day, Wrestlemania XXVII came in with a whimper and left with a mighty roar. There is no question, Taker and Triple H was match of the night. Seeing the WWE Hall of Fame inductees and Flo Rida confronting Heath Slater was also awesome. It wasn’t perfect, but it was money well spent. I hope you guys enjoyed the show, I know I did. Good night.

SOPA & PIPA – The internet strikes back!

 

The World Wide Web is looking weird today; things are blacked out, whole sites are shut down, and people on message boards are way angrier than usual. What’s going on? Oh that’s right, the U.S. government is trying to bring into law two forms of legislation called the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Protect IP Act (PIPA) from both House and Senate. These two Bills are very similar to the S.978 bill we here at Armada posted about last year. In the broad strokes if these Acts become law; they will give the government and IP owners the ability to take off their posted copyrighted work off any website (no matter the context) and effectively shut down the site. It was proposed to fight internet pirates, but I don’t have to tell you how these bills can be misused. From reviews and parodies to simple pictures and the like, all will fall under these Bills and so all sites can be terminated – mines and yours. As a result the internet is under a one day protest, showing what could happen if these Bills comes to law. Heavy hitters like Google and Wikipedia to fan favorites like the Spoony Experiment are all in on the rebel rousing, and so far it is making waves.

 

Many congressmen (and women to be sure) are now speaking out on the Bills’ scorched earth like solution, as it may cause more harm then good. Despite this however we’re not out of the woods yet; the Senate vote on PIPA is on Tuesday – while SOPA’s House vote won’t come till February. So people, please for the sake of the net itself contact your representatives and say: “We don’t truck with no Pirate, but we love our sites, please don’t kill ours” Thank you.

 

 

Update 1/19/12: Good news fokes, thanks to the near total boycotting of the net and the most aggressive peaceful demonstrations across the country; the PIPA bill has lost a total of 18 Senators so it looks like its on its way out. Vigilance however is still advised, it ain’t over til its over.

 

 

This just in (or not) – President Obama is an American citizen.

This may come as a shock to some, after the concrete evidence of businessman and alleged presidential candidate, Donald Trump’s investigator’s proving otherwise, United States president, Barak Obama once and for all, proved that he was born in the United States of America. I know, I was stunned as well, but his papers look legit. I always liked the president so, in any case, I’m happy for him. So now, ARMADA can go back to doing video game and product reviews and Mr. President can go back making the country a better place. Everyone can move on, well right after the post-victory gloating over Trump in an event that took place yesterday, check the video below.
