Op Ed

Forbes - Fun with Reductio ad Absurdum, the NRA and Video Games.
Is it because the media is a corruptible influence? Hereís a hint. Itís because we love real life guns so much as a society that violent shooter games are so popular. A society that is inherently fascinated with violence creates violent media, itís not the other way around. And say what you will about this debate, but a kid playing a video game where he shoots a gun is safer than a kid who is shooting an actual gun, even just at inanimate objects. Compare a kid playing Call of Duty five hours a day to one who goes to the shooting range for the same duration. Which one might be better at hitting real world targets? Adam Lanza was a crack shot, and itís more than a little bit likely it was from his time spent with his mom on the shooting range than it was from his hours spent playing Starcraft.

What is this, Forbes? SANITY?

Begone with you! There is no room for logical thought in the Lieberman witch hunt!

Edit : Wait... what just happened. A politician showing some sanity as well?

The world is REALLY getting strange.


It's all a trick. Once behind closed doors they put on their Star Trek mirror universe style evil beards and resume their plotting (while stroking said beards). Currently on the agenda is a bill to authorize an experiment for seniors to be isolated and studied so that it can be determined what nutrients they have that might be extracted for our personal use. It will be a rider attached to a bill originally designed to prevent elder abuse, purely for the delicious irony.
