Look at the news should that be banned ? besides its all bolloxs because when you hit 16 you can join the army and do some "Real Killing". Ask yourself is the gaming industry imitating life or the reverse ? I would give him credit if games endorsed by the government "Americas Army" game didnt exist, hmm kettle and pot comes to mind.

These games duty is to past the time, release any aggressive tendencies, entertainment, obviously differentiate the difference between virtual world and the real world, some may say they help to train future soldiers on the cheap for the army ? Cowboys and indians bang bang YOUR'E dead we heard them say yesterday, nowadays its click boom PWND yo ASS biatch Laughing

PoliticalMaestro I could not agree with you more.

Its is a well know fact the our government as taken a big interest in videos games especially first person shooters.They have funded and set up studios to get theses games into the hands of would be soldiers.There idea is.If you can kill someone in a video game you can do it on the battle field.

MySpace Is The Trojan Horse Of Internet Censorship
Media elite's last gasp effort to save crumbling empire
MySpace isn't cool, it isn't hip and it isn't trendy. It represents a cyber trojan horse and the media elite's last gasp effort to reclaim control of the Internet and sink it with a stranglehold of regulation, control and censorship.

Since Rupert Murdoch's $580 Million acquisition of MySpace in July 2005, it has come from total obscurity to now being the 8th most visited website in the world, receiving half as many page hits as Google, despite the fact that on first appearance it looks like a 5-year-old's picture scrap and scribble book.

MySpace is the new mobile phone. If you don't have a MySpace account then you belong to some kind of culturally shunned underclass.

What most of the trendy wendy's remain blissfully unaware of is the fact that MySpace is Rupert Murdoch's battle axe for shaping a future Internet environment whereby electronic dissent, whether it be against corporations or government, will not tolerated and freedom of e-speech will cease to exist.

MySpace has been caught shutting down blogs critical of itself and other Murdoch owned companies. They even had the audacity to censor links to completely different websites when clicking through for MySpace. When 600 MySpace users complained, MySpace deleted the blog forum that the complaints were posted on. Taking their inspiration from Communist China, MySpace regularly uses blanket censorship to block out words like 'God'.

Earlier this week Rupert Murdoch sounded the death knell for conventional forms of media in stating that the media elite were losing their monopoly to the rapid and free spread of new communication technologies. Murdoch stressed the need to regain control of these outlets in order to prevent the establishment media empire from crumbling.

we should ban any remotely sexually related content as well...its terrible for the minds of our children. May as well throw all women in jail too if they don't cover themselves up.

Jack would love it in iraq, we should deport him there.
