"Any leftover funds are put toward dismantling ICE"

Oh yeah, because enforcing legal immigration is so horrible, who needs to make sure people follow the law.

Honestly this game is just someone making fun of the right wing and disguising it as a "game"

(+24)

I'm sorry, was it not politically correct enough for you

(-17)

Yeah, how could they say something so politically incorrect, don't they know it's illegal to speak their opinions

(+7)

Yawn

(+11)

Sir, how could you denigrate ICE, the make-work organization for dudes whose necks were too thick to fit into a police officer's uniform?

(-8)

Wow actually never heard of the word denigrate till now. Still not sure what on earth this post means

(+2)(-1)

r u dumb

(-3)

No I'm just not sure what you're talking about in the previous post

(+3)(-1)

How is it that most people immigrate illegally per logistics, and what is their crime rate compared to citizens, and what do they asymmetrically contribute to taxes?

Are you aware the differences between the DHS and ICE, their separate founding dates and impacts? Also, do you think stealing children and deporting their parents is ethical or humane?

I'm not attacking, I'm asking questions to foster intellectual honesty, so please answer as such.

(-14)

Actually, Trump has been the one trying to fix that (children being separated), but nobody wants to admit that he's doing something good even by their standards. Also, ICE is a part of DHS, so I'm not sure what you're really trying to get at

Not really sure what you're saying in the first sentence either, but technically all illegal immigrants commit crimes, so their crime rate is 100%, if that's what you're talking about.

You suck at facts

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-says-he-is-considering-a-new-famil...

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/03/30/upshot/crime-immigration-myth.htm...

I know, I know, "The liberal media!!!!!!" Cuz why think when you can shout nonsense

(-10)

Ok first of all, I'm not wrong about criminal illegal immigrants. They're criminals because they ILLEGALLY entered the country. Meaning they broke the law. Making them criminals. Also, you directed me to a post about immigrants in general.

(+3)

Wow what a take, "this class of people are illegal because we've arbitrarily decided to make it that way even though up until the 90's it wasn't actually a crime."

If we don't factor in that semantic bullshit, immigrants are far less likely to commit crimes (because, y'know, they have a lot more to lose for even minor offenses no one cares about). If they weren't being persecuted, they might do things like join unions and demand higher wages. The persecution of immigrants is kind of why pay sucks for some jobs, because businesses can exploit those workers and threaten to turn them in if they complain.

It's almost as if companies who are paying undocumented immigrants below minimum wage are manufacturing a situation to make the lives of their workers hell so that they can keep their wages low. It's almost as though your own life, personally, would be improved if we didn't spend an absurd amount of resources putting migrants into labor camps and instead reformed our immigration policy so that these people could legally exist in the US and have a path to citizenship.

Of course, you better not have smoked any fucking pot or broken any laws yourself if you're going to be calling people criminals for trying to work for a living.

(-7)

And for the other article, I guess I was wrong, that's it. I heard somewhere Trump was fixing that problem (which I think Obama put into place, again, not sure since I don't keep up with politics enough) But I do think Trumps right that illegal immigrant families can use children to sort of cheat the system. I think there was another way to do that but I forget. Personally I just think we should send the whole family back where they came from, with this new law in place it'll be the immigrant's fault for crossing illegally. They knew the risks and decided to take them

Dear Plasma45.

Without any undue hostility, I would encourage you to look up the facts, all of them, from both favorable and hostile sources, and then make up your own, enlightened opinion.

(+1)

nothing gets past you, huh

(-3)

um, thanks?

(+3)

How much money has Jeff Bezos earned while I sat playing this game?

(+2)

The Citizen Kane of videogames. Better yet, the Mario Kart 64 of cinematographic arts

true ending first run.

i.. am speechless..

Another game, a bit more theoretical, but with graphics:

Good game, reminder to rise up comrades

It's true, having five money is four evil

(-1)

this guy knows what's up

(+5)

this is accurate actually 

(1 edit) (+1)

I love this! Here's an excellent companion piece courtesy of the Onion: https://www.theonion.com/you-are-all-inside-amazon-s-second-headquarters-jeff-18...

(+2)

This is super super excellent, I put $10 towards you amassing a fortune as enormous as Jeff Bezos's, however I would also like to reserve the rights to make a videogame where people have to spend all your money

DEAL

(+7)

This is a truly amazing, inspring project. I don't think I've ever felt closer to being able to comprehend the impossible amounts of wealth of these monstorous people.
A new favourite game of mine.

GOTY 2018!

(+7)(-1)

Where's the start a socialist revolution option?

(+6)(-30)

Being rich isn't bad.

(+19)(-3)

yes it is

(1 edit) (+2)(-6)

Why

(+15)(-1)

it is almost not possible to become rich through ethical means and hoarding wealth instead of using it to help people who need it is morally indefensible 

(1 edit) (+1)(-11)

Morality is subjective, no?

(+13)(-1)

hey, congrats on taking a philosophy 101 class! consider this: the subjective nature of morality does not make moral judgments invalid

(+1)(-6)

A nobel peace prize is worth 1.5 million dollars. Though I'm sure they had to do some shady stuff to get it, am I right fellow socialists!

(+6)(-1)

if you’ll reread my reply you will notice the inclusion of the word ‘almost’. instead of making inane, tedious nitpicks in a feeble attempt to score points for your team, try to actually engage with ideas openly and understand what people are trying to say

(1 edit) (-4)

This guy knows whats up

(+7)(-1)

People often defend the rich because they want to believe they themselves will be rich someday. Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but,

better than all of my twines rolled into one :D

(+8)(-1)

Absolutly amazing. Make this into an app and make it free on the Amazon App store.


And continue the story! Let's make billionaires extinct!

(+4)

This is such a good idea omg

it's an addictive game!

(+5)(-40)

the options for what to spend money on are big gay, it would be a lot cooler if you could buy some kind of gun and / or an island and also a boat now that would be a good game

(+20)(-2)

You may have missed the point.

(+2)(-7)

I like the way this guy thinks

(+3)(-2)

Fuck yeah a boat

(+3)(-1)

this is so good

(+1)(-1)

This was beautiful. I love it.

(1 edit) (+2)(-1)

Fantastic. Play this right now.

(+1)

I love this. I got the neutral ending with Elon.

(+3)

I got the true ending. I am Elon.

I got the bad ending.

(+2)

AMAZING

(+9)

my only and largest criticism with this game is that i cannot buy the assassins out so that they will also kill me, jeff bezos, at the end of the game, ending my, jeff bezos', reign of terror

(+2)

this is such a good game!! fun, clever,  and super satisfying...wish it was more than just a fantasy lmao!!
