Jack Thompson Writes Obama

Jack Thompson Asks Obama For Nationwide Ban On "Killer Games" reproduces a letter from disbarred but unbowed anti-gaming zealot Jack Thompson, addressed to United States President Barack Obama. The letter references the recent school shooting in Germany and, taking a page from the playbook of fellow fanatic David Grossman, repeatedly makes use of the phrase "murder simulator." He also outlines highlights of his ten-year campaign combating violent video games that began after his attempts to blame society's ills on rap music began falling on deaf ears. After a decade of effort, he has finally concluded the only solution is to ban violent games altogether:
I conclude by asking you, one father to another, to take the bold moves necessary to get these murder simulators out of America. We have more guns than people in this country. We are training our teens to be Manchurian Candidates to use them and to author what will be more Columbines, more Virginia Techs, and more shattered communities.

I live in the UK... least accountable government ... overthrowing of foreign governments, assassinations, wiretapping, monitoring of communications

I don't want to get into the pro gun / no gun debate, but I thought this was pretty funny. I love how people who live outside the US always have a problem with the US wiretapping its citizens and monitoring their communications. Seriously, why is that? I can see why people are worried about the US "overthrowing governments," (Although nobody complained about it when Europe wanted something done about Milicic and begged the US to come help?) but why are you so worried about the US wiretapping? They won't wiretap YOU?

It's especially amusing when you consider that MI6 has had the right to wiretap you WITHOUT a legal warrant for basically forever. The FBI would LOVE to have MI6's freedom. Most intelligence agencies in Europe actually have this freedom. The BVD in Holland has almost no limits when it comes to intelligence gathering, and the BND in Germany is pretty lax too.

The FBI has to get a federal warrant signed by a judge in the large, large majority of cases before it can wiretap someone. And yet, that's always the thing everyone bleats about.

As for the assassinations, what exactly are we talking about here? The attempted murder of Fidel Castro back in the 60s?
