Federal GTA Lawsuit

Suit seeks to ban sales of popular video game (thanks Mike Martinez): "A lawsuit by Haitian groups that asks for the top-selling video game 'Grand Theft Auto: Vice City' to be removed from store shelves will be decided in federal court. " Also, Give Back Take Two (thanks Hump and Steve Nutley) has complaints from The New York Post about GTA, apparently making the case for how depicting violence in a game is worse than molestation: "This is 10,000 times worse than the worst thing anybody thinks Michael Jackson ever did to a little boy."

Moog,

I am not even gonna bother with your conspiracy theories anymore. You are obviously pretty wacky. I'm sorry you think the US is the great evil in the world. Truly. Too bad you can't see that we are the hope for freedom for humanity.


Tango,

I disagree once again. I think it is entirely evident that freeing up money for investors stimulates the economy. Give $1000 to a bum and he will drink it. Give $1000 to an investor and he will invest it. When cash is infused into the system, it sprouts. Always with the same results. As I said, you can directly see the results. Each time the taxes are cut, the ecomnomic impact actaully IMPROVES taxation for the government. More business transactions and more personal wealth to tax.

The budget.

These stats are from the United States Budget.

2003 stats in billions.

Discretionary programs:

Defense: 368
Non-defense 405 (Education, grants, roads, etc...)

Mandatory Programs:

Social Security 472
Medicare 231
Medicaid 159
Other mandatory 297
Interest 191

As you can see, social programs are eating up the vast majority of taxes. And, these are mandatory programs. They will never be cut and only grow. THIS is the problem in the US. It's funny how the independant American spirit seems to have vanished. I remember my Grandfather telling me that when he grew up, nobody would ever take a handout if they could help it from fear of embarrasment. Now, we have a growing percentage of people in the US that don't pay taxes and live on the dole. Welfare and Medicare/Medicaid are socialist programs doomed for failure.

http://w3.access.gpo.gov/usbudget/fy2003/maindown.html If you wanna check it out.

And, Sep 11th should be all the explanation you need concerning our military budget.
