I didn't know the rest of the world had a Fox News equivalent.


^ You like to mock FOX news, but the truth is that it is far more fair & balanced than anything else.
I'm not saying its perfect, as they allow crack-pots to come on....but they always offer both sides of any issue, and the viewer is free to decide for themselves.
Unlike most other News networks that have only one-side, who are completely biased, and try to tell you what to think.

I watch FOX News, and I see opposing views regularly...people like Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, Diane Feinstein, Barbara Boxer, Juan Williams, and so many more.
I watch CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, etc...and they only have their special selected Democrats as guests.
It's like.....
"Today we are going to talk about Republicans and their policies, and we have a nice group of guests who just happen to all be Democrats"
Yeah, that's so fair & balanced.

Plus, pay attention to the way they word stuff....
They talk about a Republican and they try to use words with a negative connotation in the same sentence....such as "pain, war, blood, violence, racism"...and etc.
Yet when they talk about Democrats, it the opposite, as they use words with positive connotation....("peace, bright, daring, charismatic, shine..." and etc.
Its a form of brain-washing, and its so easy to spot it.
Pay attention, and you'll spot it too...although you probably won't care if you are a staunch Liberal-Democrat, who wants to win at any cost (even through manipulation & lying).

Remember when Bush was President, and all these other News Networks would talk about the deaths of soldiers on a daily basis...plus they would have specials on Poverty, Homelessness, Crime, Pollution, and other negative stuff.
But now that Obama is President you don't see none of that...even though it still exists, but they don't want to give the same impression.
Or how about how they covered the rising cost of gas under Bush, but don't hardly talk about rising cost of gas in the same light under Obama.
Under Bush, it was all his fault ("blood for oil")...but under Obama its never his fault.
And they never cover any of the Obama scandals (go look up the Fast & Furious Obama scandal).

Or how about how horrible having a deficit was under Bush, and it was causing our economy to worsen...but under Obama a huge deficit is a good thing, and we need to make it bigger if we want to improve the economy.
Under Bush, a 6% unemployment rate was terrible...yet under Obama, we should be jumping for joy now that its at 7.9%.
And I could literally go on & on with examples...

Its quite obvious to see the blatant bias & hypocrisy.


Wow. In any case, people need to think for themselves and not watch FOX news and CNN for all their info.

This is hilarious. Sony fans consider themselves to be an expert in gaming and now politics. You people give yourselves way too much credit. Stop kidding yourselves with all this BS and just admit that you don't like having a black president. The denial in here is astounding.


Being black got him a crapload of free votes, that's true, but that's not reason.
We don't like him because of his sheer hypocrisy.

Just to mention a few things: giving himself credit for Bin Laden's death when he's not one of the thousands of soldiers who died in the war, being immune from his own gun banning measures (not that I'm against gun regulation) and the infamous "Michelle Obama, discount shopper" pictures (never mind her buying 1000$ jewels every now and then).

I agree with you about those who give themselves too much credit when they don't know a damn, though.

It's funny how MotiJR has nothing to say about the actual content of the topic. You know, arguing for and against studies on video game violence.

I fail to see how the pigmentation of the president's skin factors into that whatsoever.

But here's the deal: There exist studies on video game violence. They have proved time and time again that there is no causal link between violent crimes and video games.

Thus, predicting that these further studies will have the same result and end up as a waste of both time and money is more than reasonable.

Or worse yet, some fear that the government will keep throwing time and money at it to produce the results they want.

My opinion? Besides the health care reform, Obama seems to run the exact same policy as his predecessor. The police state reforms pre-date him.

Socialist? Hardly. He's still catering to the most powerful lobbies at the expense of the majority population.


I already stated my view on the idea that videogames cause violence in another thread. Having studied it as part of Psychology, I can confirm there is no causal link between videogames and violence but only a correlation between aggression and violent video games. It cannot be identified whether violent video games make children more violent or if violent children play violent video games.

Like I already stated, I couldn't care less if your President wasted money on research or not. Doesn't affect me in the slightest. What I find sad is that there are so many people here who claim to hate on him for his political standing when the fact is they have no idea about politics. They use the idea of politics to hide the fact that they don't want to be governed by someone whom they consider to be inferior to them just because his skin happens to contain more melanin than theirs.

If you're going to hate on someone because they are a different race to you, atleast have the guts to come out and admit it. Don't hide behind political BS and then behave as if you're some poor misunderstood soul when you're completely transparent. This doesn't apply to you specifically but in a general sense.

I think that if the games were related at all you'd be seeing far more cases of real world violence, especially killing than actually happen.

I used to play M rated games a lot growing-up or otherwise games with guns and what have you. Something must have went wrong though as my Brother and I haven't started acting like ravenous murders or otherwise violent maniacs. Hell, I've played a lot of shooters since the early Wolfenstein 3D and Doom games when they first game out, played the crap out of Perfect Dark, Goldeneye, Halo, Halo 2 many other violent ones in between and even still... I'm have 0% interest in owning a gun or any other kind of weapon. Quite frankly, in real life they scare the living crap out me... granted, I can't stand gunfire and HAVE been held-up at knife point before.

But anyway, most people are perfectly capable of realizing that a game or any other type of media is fantasy, not matter how realistic it is. So long as the parents of the newer generations assist in making sure their kids are aware of that, I don't see the problem.

I believe for a game to have any effect whatsoever, an individual would have to have already been quite disturbed in some way beforehand or have a special type or severity of a type of mental illness. Even then, I'm skeptical.

Oh and lets not forget that even if you take away the games and people are still going to have exposure to the sorts of things that parents and the government would be trying to protect them from. Movies, books etc... they could see objectionable things at a friends house whose parents might be more easy going with this stuff.

To be honest, you could use the healthier menu. I've seen what schools serve for lunch over there and it really explains a lot. Some restrictions might do you good. Not to mention a lot of food available in America is fake. By that I mean there are a pile of artificial colours and flavours in foods, honey is usually only a tiny bit honey and the rest is corn syrup, cinnamon is actually cassia bark and you have ammoniated pink slime for meat etc.

Considering I've played GTA since it's release and I've never shot anyone, stolen a car, bought a hooker, committed random acts of violence, or killed anyone, I don't think it really matters.

Not really not all schools go the junk food, fake food route.

My school actually served decent food. Fruits or vegetable was required but there were no complaints. Now they removed some good food and replace most bread with whole grain. Because they cut food there is a longer snack line on Wednesday because no one want to eat the other food they're serving. And to top it all state laws require lunch price to go up. So we're paying more for less.

^ What many people don't know, is that Obama was told about the whereabouts of Bin-laden 3-times.

The first time Obama made no attempt to make a move...the second time he made no attempt to do anything either.
On the 3rd attempt, he (Obama) was warned that if we don't act fast, then the window for opportunity would be lost.
That's when he decided to get Obama.

So Obama didn't even want to get Bin Laden at first...and it wasn't until he was urged to act that he did finally give the order.
This was confirmed by a secret-service agent who was there and quit because he got tired of Obama and ended up writing a book about it.
But it gets no attention in the main News Networks because it makes Obama look bad, so they keep it under wraps.

But of course now he uses Bin-laden to brag how tough & wonderful he is.
Never even giving Bush credit for the intel gathering that had to take place in the previous administration that eventually led to the whereabouts of Bin Laden.

The issue with obesity isn't what food we eat, it's the activities we do. Most kids these days do absolutely nothing except sit their fat asses down when they should go outside for a little bit. Run around. Be active. Do SOMETHING!
