I'm really sick of all this crap lately. Video game violence blah blah blah and how CoD are "murder simulators".. What a bunch of morons. Don't let your kids play "violent video games". Instead, let them watch violent cartoons, violent movies, play with violent toys and let them pretend to shoot each other for real with water guns and Nerf guns.


I wonder if they ever go look at the shows that are on Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. For example, Adventure Time has more blood and gore than most shooter games. It's almost like watching Fat Princess put into a TV show. Yet nobody realizes this?

2. More Socialist health care crap, more of what we don't need.

16. More Socialist health care combined with an invasion of privacy, typical Obummer moronic crap.

20-23. More Socialist govt. interference in the medical community.

I remember seeing a clip from an old folks home, I think it was probably Daily Show showing a Fox News clip, where they were asking the people there about their thoughts on socialized healthcare. They all hated it. And I thought, ummm what is Medicare and Medicaid? So nice of those people to not only bleed the pot dry but to actually have the audacity (rather lack of brains) to say they are against what they are doing.

It boggles the mind that Americans would prefer the current system whereby the insurance company takes over 30% of all spending for its own profit, and their lawyers actively try to prevent your treatment because it saves them money, and where if you get a serious illness you go bankrupt.

Btw, "Obummer"? I've always thought the anti-President name calling and general disrespect are racist in nature, because I don't recall any other sitting President getting that kind of abuse.

I wanted to added that there's a bill proposed in Missouri to tax "violent" video games.

If passed, the bill would impose a 1% sales tax to violent games, to be used to finance mental health programs and law enforcement measures to prevent mass shootings. No other form of media is being targeted by the proposal.

You're overreacting.


Look into what Bloomberg and Feinstein have already done, and are proposing for the future, and the hypocrisy of them owning and CARRYING guns on a daily basis, and tell me I'm over-reacting.

Anti-gun politicians that are armed themselves and have armed bodyguards refuse to allow people to defend themselves.

Hypocrisy Much ? ? ?


Please explain the Hypocrisy? Did they outlaw guns, And for Anti Gun Politicians that have armed bodyguards, 1. they are high profile risks who must be protected from people like you that would take their conspiracy theories to the extreme and wish harm on them and at risk to act on this mental breakdow, and 2. Citizens are more than welcome to hire professional highly trained armed bodyguards for protection, no one is trying to take that away?
3. most of these antigun politicians are not looking to ban all firearms, they just feel that the there should be more regulation. You can't own a tank, a rocket launcher, a nuclear missle, what would you need it for other than killing.


So people should be required to hire armed bodyguards instead of defending themselves?

Where's the money for that again?

And actually you CAN legally own a working firing tank and a rocket launcher in 18 states as long as you can pass the NFA background check and obtain a Dangerous Devices permit for each round of ammo.

There's more than 16,000 firearms acquisition laws already on the books in the USA, we don't need more, we just need to enforce what we already have.


Again this is all regulation which is necessary. And if we didn't have the excessive firearm problem we have today, almost no one would need to hire armed bodyguards. I don't think we need to ban firearms, but we sure as hell need more regulations on them. More training, and more education, and make them less easily accessable to those who are not mentally or physically capable of handling firearms safely, this includes the mentally unstable that live in daily fear of government takeover and could snap at any moment. Excessive fear and hate can (and does) lead to unnecessary use of firearms quicker than most other factors.

Please name one other country that has the same or less gun control (or none as many seem to want) as America that you would feel as safe living in or safer than America.

In a similar instance, they had a guy from the south complaining about Obama handing out entitlements, and they asked him about him receiving food stamps, and he said that was different because he was entitled to them...absolutely priceless moment.

Speaking of Obama-care....

He promised that it wouldn't cost anything....
Then he promised that it wouldn't cost more than 90 Million.
Current estimates have it at 2-Trillion, and counting.

How can anyone believe anything that comes out of his mouth ?
