    This thread is full of nothingness with no relation to the section topic whatsoever. But now, I actually have a rant, and I really just need to vent.

    I am just plain sick of the federal goverment impeding on gamers right. All I want to do is play my video games, and just because you believe that a reason for a teenage murder is based on games like GTA, you think it needs to be banned. You just do not have the proper intelligence to be in such a high office. This is beyond idiotic, beyond unreal, and I am sure I'm not the only one who agrees.

    With that said, I urge the users here to read this common sense defying article fully. At this point, I am just speechless and I don't know what to say. I will leave commenting to the users who read this. *Sigh* I feel bad just copying this link....

    Department of Homeland Security Issues Ban on video game.

    As much as I am pissed off about banning my favorite final fantasy ever in texas, I find this article rather amusing.

    The comments from the "public" are hilarious. Pure propaganda in that there is no one arguing on the contrary in the whole article. Just sardonic comments that lend to neither side. And saying they "found child pornography" acts as a double in that it makes them look better by saying this person was not only a terrorist, but also a pedifile, so we are gonna take an even worse person off the streets," but also makes people who play fantasy games look like they all have child pornography, as well.
    And that our governemt fears bombing from children that played the game, must only mean that our government is evil, and wishes on world domination, but then, I really didn't have to point that out.

    On second thought, maybe its no so amusing.

    Remember guns aren't evil, kids who play video games are.

    Who cares that men like Gengis Kahn killed before guns or video games, now days all violence can be blamed on items not the people who did the act.

    I would be mad if that were the actual CNN site instead of a spoof.

    I still think that its funny that a game promoting violence, drugs and crime is suddenly horrible because of a little soft porn.

    That it's so easily believable is pathetic, though.

    Eh, I use New Posts on the main forums, and all the subforums show there. I'll randomly post in the subforums if the topics are something I'm interested in. :)

    "First Grand Theft Auto, and now this. I'm starting to think we should just ban all video games. Final Fantasy VII is an awful game, and should have never been created in the first place. I mean, look at the size of Tifa's breasts! They're destroying our childrens future. The problem of explicit video games is spiraling out of control." Clinton wrote in a letter to the head of the Federal Trade Commission. Tifa's breasts were unavailible for comment.

    Oh dear God. I haven't laughed this hard in a month. [​IMG]

    I heard that left breast is pretty stern. :lol:

    I'm glad you liked it. You think I should post this in the General Off-topic forum? It has gained popularity so they may already know about it.
