Woman Honor Thyself

When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking. --Elaine Boosler

Jus AnotheR DaY inna HooD


Scene One: Gangstas toting machine guns massacring cops on the streets.
Yup you guessed it -
Alas the video game we have all been waiting for has arrived..NOT.

In this soon to be released video "25 to Life"-
"players" get to choose if they want to be a ganster or cop ...charming.

This latest in a series of violent video games is one in which -
"players take on the role of a drug dealer named Freeze who gets into gunfights with police officers, uses civilians as human shields, and shoots rival gang members."It sets gang members against police and sends them on a mission to fight their way through the streets, killing whatever gets in the way."

Some people are speaking out-
Senator Blasts Video Game

Senator Charles E. Schumer (D-New York) is embarking on a crusade against Eidos, "You certainly don't need a degree in criminal justice to understand that when you make sport of behavior that is dangerous and destructive you reinforce it. The last thing we need here in New York is to reinforce a destructive culture of violence and disrespect for the law."

"Little Johnny should be learning how to read, not how to kill cops," Schumer said.

While the Liberals continue to allege that their First Amendment rights are being trampled (which is a falsehood in and of itself)..I pose this question...What are the limits of this ideology?

Killing cops?...glorifying gansta life...o yea..jus another day in the Hood.

Yet there are those who still maintain ..it shouldn't be censored. Well if that's not a clear indicator of the public temperature on morality...I don't know what is.

    RPG's (role playing games) can be especially influential on young minds. Repetative actions can become learned behavior. The comic book industry was severely censored in the 1950's because socialolgists were able to prove to Congress that pulp fiction was pushing kids towards violence. In RPG's the child isn't reading a story, he is the story. Killing and crime are rewarded in the child's mind. Although I believe adults can handle this, some of these games need to be rated "X" for violence and criminal behavior.
    Therefore, rpg's shouldn't be allowed to be advertised to children. But ultimately, we rely on Parents who need to say NO for a change.

    It is not the game. It is the trendy message. The glorification of evil and the demonization of good. There is a twisted logic at work when it is ok to be the bad guy and participate in the murder or worse of the innocent. Lord konws kids love to be trendy.

    Video games have some very scary, icky things in them these days. Parents need to be more vigilant.

    Yeah, like that one move in "manhunt" where you take the plastic bag and wrap it around another guy's head, then turn him around screaming. A few blows to the head, twist the neck, and voilĂ !

    Good game...
