"Grand Theft" of Our Rights

Posted on

Who cares if adult males can sit at home and watch CGI characters perform sexual acts on each other? Is it really any of our business what people do in their own homes?

I’m speaking of course, about the video game “Grand Theft Auto” and the hacked download that allows certain features of the game to be unlocked. I haven’t seen them, but these features are supposedly sexual in nature. As I understand it, these features were not built into the game by the developers, even though the game already carries an “M” (Mature) rating and should therefore be allowed to include whatever content it wants.

So, we have a game rated for “Mature” audiences, which means it should only be played by adults, and we have Senator Clinton requesting an investigation into the download. She has now proposed a $90 million investigation (yes, another one) into the effects of violence in video games on children.

Ignoring the fact that $90 million could feed every homeless person in America for the rest of their life, why is there an investigation into something that only adults are “supposed” to be able to access anyway? Now, being a Christian conservative, I don’t agree with sexual acts in video games, but my take on it is to not purchase the product. It’s that simple.

People, if you don’t like something, then don’t purchase it, don’t play, don’t endorse it in any way. But for the love of all things free and holy, don’t take that freedom away from other people. The founders of this country were conservative beyond belief, but even still, they created a document that gave everyone freedom regardless of whether or not those freedoms flew in the face of the drafter’s personal beliefs. They set aside their personal feelings so that you and I could be free to do as we please.

People like Senator Clinton want to take those freedoms away from us and impose their own personal prejudices on the collective. It’s unnecessary and it’s unwanted. We have laws in place for reasons. If the intent of those laws, in this case the intent being to ensure that only adults view certain material, are not respected, the what’s the point in having the law?

I urge Senator Clinton and her GOP associates to drop this line of pursuit and let people look, read and speak what they want.

    IFLH announces Senator David Cain has joined its Board of Directors!!

    IFLH volume trading is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement. The value of this
    stock appears poised for growth! This one should not remain on the ground floor for long.

    BREAKING NEWS!!
    InterFinancial Holdings, Corp. (OTC Pink Sheets: IFLH – News) announced that they have added
    David Cain to their board of directors. David Cain is currently the Chairman of the advisory
    board to TTI (Texas Transportation Institute). Senator Cain represented Senate District 2 for
    eight years in the Texas Senate and Chaired the Senate State Affairs Subcommittee on
    Transportation and served nine terms in the Texas House of Representatives for District 107.

    During his twelve years as Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, Senator Cain�s
    efforts on behalf of the people of Texas have been widely recognized. He was named to Texas
    Monthly Magazine�s list of Ten Best Legislators, the Dallas Morning News said he was one of
    the outstanding legislators of the 73rd session, and the Texas Department of Transportation
    awarded him the Russell H. Perry Award in 1995 for his efforts to gain public awareness of
    the need for and benefits of transportation facilities in the State of Texas.

    Jeffrey C. Bruteyn, Managing Director, stated, We at InterFinancial are proud to have such a
    widely recognized Senator join our board and oversee out automotive lending division. His
    affiliations and connections to the automotive industry will be invaluable to our company.
    Senator Cain will be instrumental in expediting our approval to use a government issued Seller
    Finance License.

    Seller Finance Licenses are very difficult to obtain and are usually reserved for the Big Boys
    with heavy lobbyists. These licenses are highly coveted because it allows the finance company
    to collect the entire down payment, instead of paying a portion of it to the taxing authority.
    This dramatically helps a finance company�s bottom line if the buyer defaults on the loan.

    With the new GPS tracking systems being installed on every car to dramatically improve
    repossessions and with Senator Cain on the Board of Directors, InterFinancial Holdings
    is ready to take their business to the next level.

    Conclusion:

    The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little known Companies
    That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens. This stock will not be a Secret for long.

    Having now had several months in which to further consider this issue, it seems to me that my conclusions in this regard can be considerably refined. ,
