There really needs to be a "NO POLITICAL DISCUSSION ALLOWED" rule here. This forum just isn't good at it. Almost everyone is far too convinced that they're correct, far too eager to condescend to others and make needless personal attacks, far too willing to make ridiculous assertions and blanket statements without backing them up, and far too stubborn to concede any points or admit to faulty logic. It's not worth bringing things up.

And no offense meant, but I'm certainly glad that I don't know a lot of you personally.

You actually have to go through a few links to get here:

http://www.eppc.org/publications/pubID.2189/pub_detail.asp

The Ethics and Public Policy Center (EPPC) is one of several policy institutes established by neoconservatives to promote the increased role of religion in public policy. Other closely interlinked institutes include the Institute on Religion and Democracy (IRD), Empower America, and Institute on Religion and Public Life. Also closely connected to these institutes are the religious programs at Freedom House and the American Enterprise Institute, whose program officers sit on the boards of these neoconservative institutes and whose programs often coincide.

Established in 1976, EPPC aims “to clarify and reinforce the bond between the Judeo-Christian moral tradition and the public debate over domestic and foreign policy issues.”

http://rightweb.irc-online.org/org/eppc.php

Elliott Abrams now (2000) the president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center

Elliott Abrams was assistant secretary of state for Inter-American affairs during the Reagan Administration. As such, he was responsible for the repressive and illegal policies pursued in El Salvador and Nicaragua during the 1980s, and played a key role in the US relationship to Manuel Noriega, and then lied about the whole deal to the US Congress.

In 1991, Abrams was indicted by the Iran-Contra special prosecutor for giving false testimony before Congress in 1987 about his role in illicitly raising money for the Nicaraguan Contras. He pleaded guilty to two lesser offenses of withholding information to Congress in order to avoid a trial and a possible jail term.

A book he wrote was underwritten by the Bradley foundation via the Hudson Institute.

Abrams is on the advisory board of the Media Research Center, an organization that opposes any traces of liberalism on TV or in films. Chairman L. Brent Bozell III publishes the newsletter TV, ETC., with an advisory board that includes Abrams, Mona Charen, Pete DuPont, and Rush Limbaugh.

(Note: Abrams is no longer the President of the EPCC; he has served since June 2001 as Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Democracy, Human Rights and International Operations.)

Man, if you fuck with their computer game, they'll stick your ass in Guantanamo, hold you indefinitely without trial, and they might torture you some. So watch out.

I hope this game lets you smoke weed. Then you could smoke game weed while smoking real weed, and that would be totally trippy, man.

"Dude! After I finished off the bowl I drove to work at like 120mph!"
"Dude! Wow, how long did it take you to get there?"
"Dude! I don't know, I think it was like an hour 'cause I was only an hour late."
"Dude! How far of a drive is it."
"Dude! Like almost ten miles. And the crazy thing is people were passing me like I was standing still. They must have been going like 200!"
"Duuuuude!"

Whoah dude, have you been like, following me and videotaping my life and shit? That's some crazy shit, man!

Alright, I'll give you that. It's gotta be good for Wendy's business, though. Who do you think is allowing them to stay open until 2 AM? Hmm...

Weed's been legalized? Since when?

Re-read my wording.

The thing is, whether you think weed should be illegal or not doesn't change the fact that it is.

That's fine, that's your choice to make. But just because it is illegal doesn't mean we have to accept that that's how it should be. Smoking weed in your own home is nothing like driving to work at 120 mph. The former scenario poses hypothetical long-term health risks to yourself only, while the latter endangers your life and the lives of other people on the road.

Actually, yes. I assume that means you have a problem with dealers of illegal drugs serving time?

Please. In case you're not intentionally misunderstanding (for a change) I didn't say anything about all illegal drugs, I made a comment about weed. And yes, I do have a problem with it. And yes, I think the "war on drugs" on the whole has been an abject failure. Illegal is not the same as immoral.

I agree 100%. Prison should be a punishment, not an inconvenient vacation.

Yeah, make those dirty pot-dealers suffer!

Keep in mind, this guy is only 19... he's still young and idealistic. That'll wear off.

Right, but he's never getting that finger back. Now he can't wear a replacement ring, either. A symbol is not the same as the thing it symbolizes.

If the story is true and the situation was as depicted, he made a stupid choice, and perhaps the doctor shouldn't have let him.

I should have told him my little brother, was CHAZZ, one of the most famous hackers for CS.

That's hilarious. Reminds me of a comedian (forget who) who did a bit about porn stars... "You know, porn is the only industry where you can suck off a donkey and be labelled a 'star.'"

While you're at it, lock up cars, knives, ropes, bathtubs full of water, rat poison, arsenic, nurses with large doses of drugs, and people with strong muscles, because they all have been used to kill people, too.

Yes, all those things are appropriate substitues for guns in this context. What an airtight argument.

It's like something you could have seen two+ years ago.

I don't know what demo you were watching, but it can't have been the same one the rest of us got. Definitely couldn't have seen this two years ago.

Y'all are getting bent out of shape way too easily. I bet you all didn't go off like this when GTA was released. I think it sounds somewhat interesting... at least different from all the other games being released lately. I want to see how it plays before I make my judgment.

I agree. You folks are uptight. Are we that afraid of censorship that we begin to think like the censors ourselves? Are we living in the panopticon or what?

That said, after perusing the website and reading the semi-coherent and bland-sounding gameplay descriptions, I doubt this will be any good, but not on account of the subject matter.
