As you all should know California Governor arnold schwarzenegger has gone to the supreme court in an effort to ban Video games in the stae of california. This not only completely ridiculous, but if it is passed it could quite possibly be one of the biggest breaches of our constitution rights this country has ever seen.
Video games themselves are a form of free speech, and it would be completely against the grounds that this country has been founded on to make them illegal for all people under the ages of 18.
I suppose that seeing as the parents of our nation are not competent enough to provide there children with the proper care and do not have the responsibility to watch over there childrens actings we may as well band the book, music and movie industries as well right? After all we would not want to corrupt our children's minds with all of this evil evil media. Oh, and while we're at it why dont we just take a look at some of the great child friendly movies mr schwarzenegger has made in the past few years shall we?
yep this is definetly much more child friendly then say
grr look at that hedgehog run, he MUST be teaching children how to run from the police, and all those rings? Surely they must stand for all the rings children get to wear when they cheat on there future spouses!
Wow mister arnold, you're right these video games ARE bad. But wait a minute, wheres one of the places where some of the most violent acts are comitted to date? That's right the schools!
So I suppose we should all homeschool our kids now to prevent them from being subjected to the incredibly violent day to day experiences that stem from children being bullied.
Oh and while we are at it why not just eliminate history cIass because you know this great nation that we live on was founded by VIOLENCE. that is right the United States of america became ours through war and murder. Oh dear we would HATE to expose our children to that, it would be columbine all over again!
Oh no mister governer, you better not teach people about our own history of how we came to be, we would really HATE to expose the darling children to the terrible terrible violence that we ourselves have experienced.
But you know what, thinking about children, let's look at some children programming, we would hate for children to experience anything violent, or unjust in that.
Oh no! That fox, he's a thief AND he is on a show that children watch on a daily basis. Better give him the boot, I certainly would hate my children to grow up to be thieves, wouldn't you? Plus who does he steal from again? Oh yeah, a Mexican girl! Oh no a MEXICAN??? It must be racist gasp, I would hate my children to grow up racist. Therefore it must be assumed that
Now, finally we have hopefully successfully made the media safe for children to experience. Thank GOD!
Oh, right speaking of god, we should probably go round up all the priests of any religion and imprison them as well because as you know many religions have been founded on war, and tell stories of violence. An example being the story of god killing the entire earth except for the pure which consisted of Noah, and his family, and killing must mean that you are evil so again we must assume that:
Now, I am going to close this post off because I feel that I simply cannot elaborate on this issue any further and I am all ranted out. Just post your comments and tell me what you think, about this issue. I hope this gets the most views out of any blog I've posted as seeing as gamespot is a California based video game journalism company who's user base can range from as young as 13 I am sure this issue at least effects them a small bit.
