Has anyone noticed the latest insult perpetrated by the democrats? I mean the uproar started by Mrs. Clinton (in an effort to promote herself politically on a national scale) about the Grand Theft Auto “Hot Coffee” modification. The focus lead by Mrs. Clinton and other democrats, is that sex acts are simulated by CLOTHED characters in the game. This they contend will corrupt young kids leading to sex at earlier ages, increasing STD`s, and raising the number of pre-adult single mothers.
Do they think we are stupid or uncaring? The game, which was originally marketed to be sold only to those 17+ (with an adult present) and targeted to mature gamers, is horrendous. Why? Because it promotes Black on Black crime and violence, drug dealing and thus addiction, violence against women, random violence, police corruption, abuse of power, gangs, stereotyping of the highest order and a few items I probably missed. Yet those issues are OK for the democrats as their central issue is the sexual content that was not intended for access by the public. The game MINUS the disabled portion was OK and appropriate with the above issues intact. But the Democrats claim to be the party of the people, and Blacks make up a significant portion of their party (the reason for which continues to elude me).
The solution they propose is to have the gov`t dictate what can be placed in games (or interfering with the First Amendment right to free speech) thus placing the gov`t in the marketplace. Another solution they have is for games to be equated with alcohol, cigarettes, and other items sold only to adults. While slightly better what other items of entertainment might follow suit? Restrictions on books, music and videos, movies? Maybe restricted channels for TV shows like 24, Desperate Housewives, Sopranos, General Hospital, ect. Sounds a bit like Farenheit 451?!
Aren`t parent responsible, and should act accordingly, for what minors view and do? Shouldn`t PARENTS decide what is appropriate for their child(ren)? The gov`t MUST protect its citizens but the citizens are responsible, and accountable, for the welfare and morality of the youth. Give up that right and you give up the future. Hitler stated, correctly, “Give me the children of today, and I`ll have the world tomorrow”.
If Democrats want to gain political clout (in a bid to gain the presidency) should they want to speak out about all the issues rather than 1 point in a sea of troubles? And why do we not hold them to such a standard. Why has there not been an outcry on what they FORGOT to have soundbites on?
Beyond my own disdain for this game, and the Democratic party are questions people should ask. Why not start with telling me what you think. Don`t stop there, but at least start.
