Video Games Are the New Rock and Roll - Gamer Horizon

Early this month Vice President of the United States Joe Biden met with several leaders of “faith-based organizations” to discuss gun control, immigration, and video games. Joystiq, via Politico, reported that Franklin Graham, CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association suggested “media and entertainment that portray violence should be subject to a special tax, with the proceeds going to help victims and their families.” Has he read the Bible? (GameCube, Nintendo DS, PC, PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii, Wii U, Xbox, Xbox 360)

We will just have to wait for all the dumbfuck old politicians to pass on before before rational debate can be had on the issue. But then again, maybe not, the government is always ever reaching and trying to dictate and control your life in one way or another thinking that they know best in this expanding nanny state, Bloomberg is one of the worst offenders. Also they never let a tragedy go to waste in their push for new regulations or taxes.

Agreed about Bloomberg. The worst.

I gotta say though, while I'm not defending the Government, Biden's statements seem more of a way placating rather than a to do list. Which is politics in a nutshell.

We will see what happens if and when this study comes to fruition.

"media and entertainment that portray violence should be subject to a special tax, proceeds going to help victims and their families."

1 million Iraqi civilian non-combatants killed by the US government. Who is paying for their families?
