It's not violent video games that are the problem..
His point wasn't valid sure finding a link to say no link or only a casual link is easy peasy, but he instead choose to link an opinion piece, Then he deided to curse, and curse and curse. Yeah if you want to get across a point, you can do it without the curses. When you curse, it just makes people think you have nothing else to say.
Again I'll say it, you can't link violent video games to mass murders a clear and difinitive link can be made to violent video games having a direct effect on the chemicals in your brain for hours after watching the violent movie or playing the violent video game. Tried to find the link but as I've already said I no longer have access to ebscohost. (that's a database of educational information, since seeing from your post I know you don't know what ebscohost is, typically used when writing reports.
Then he deided to curse, and curse and curse. Yeah if you want to get across a point, you can do it without the curses. When you curse, it just makes people think you have nothing else to say.
Only people with very small, very arrogant minds think that way, the rest of the 7 Billion people on the planet simply don't give a s*** about swearing because they don't look down their noses at other people.

This guy is killing me with his "Miss Cleo" predictions. Get out into the world, you'll find many people cuss at one another when making a point and having an argument and rarely does it lead to a physical confrontation. My wife and I have done it a few times, and even while drinking but I would I never lay a hand on my wife other than to help her up.
Bluesig I like and agree with your points. We're not children. We're free to pay attention, ignore, succeed and fail all by ourselves. We don't need government to hold our hands from cradle to grave, we can make our own decisions and live with the consequences. The way I see it, government has 2 jobs, deliver the mail and protect our borders from invasion. Since they can do neither well, why would we allow them more responsibilities?
BTW, your signature is just as true today (if not, more so), as it was 250 years when originally stated and also one of my favorites by old Benny-boy.
