I saw something today that upset and deeply disturbed me. I was walking past my son's bedroom, where he spends all his time on his computer playing those damn games of his. I stopped when I heard the sound of Wayne LaPierre's voice as he gave his speech about the Newtown massacre. I was surprised my son, who is just 14, was getting involved in anything political, but I was glad he was exposing himself to the right people. I opened the door, intending to tell him how proud I was, when the image on the screen stopped me cold. It was not, as I suspected, a video of Wayne LaPierre's speech, but was in fact a virtual recreation of the event, a video game. And in the game was a virtual Wayne LaPierre, standing at his podium, giving his speech... with a crosshair over his head. Before I could even utter a word to scold my child, he clicked his mouse. And the virtual Wayne LaPierre's face disappeared in a spray of blood.
I was horrified. I must have yelled at him for hours. I demanded to know where he got this game, and he showed me the thread on a website called "facepunch". You can see it for yourself here: http://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1239566&p=39218703
My son has since been banned from all video games and I had my computer-gifted daughter set up blocks on his machine so he can no longer access his game sites, at least for the time being.
The media in this country is out of control, and this is a perfect example. Movies and music and games have been getting more and more violent, and now we have game-people making threats against real leaders who speak out against this trend, and in defense of our right to bear arms. This needs to be held up as an example of what's wrong with our country, and what we need to change about our culture.
Now I'm a simple man. I love my God, my country, and my family. Heaven for me is a plate of mashed potatoes and a slice of corn-fed Iowa steak. I don't know much about computers and I don't usually involve myself in politics. This is my first time "posting" anything in fact; my daughter has been helping me write this. But seeing that horrible game brought something out in me. I don't know what, but something has to be done about this. This culture of violence corrupts our kids, and could very well cause the next Newtown. I'll be damned if I'm just gonna sit by and watch it happen.
The kid was simply playing a video game. He didn’t understand the political aspects and the underhanded brainwashing techniques that were being used there. At 14 he’s old enough to understand some things. Maybe spell it out or him why you got so angry. Otherwise you may well be assisting the left by making yourself the enemy. Just a thought.
The fond hope of the liberal who posted it.
The key difference, a very subtle difference, only distinguishable to people with IQs above the low 30s who have NOT been to Ivy League schools, is that this game has the participant shooting at recognizable, specific, public figures identifiable by face and voice; and that these figures are all nominally conservative.
If someone were to hack the game and put in David Gregory holding that, umm, clip, err, magazine, err, scary black boxy thing, or Perky Katie, or Charles Gibson during his dishonest ambush of Palin, you'd hear the libs singing a different tune.
I know this is stupid but
“Never bring a video game to a gunfight.”
Talk about your mixed messages.
> This is the same game that goes the rounds every now and then where some jerk uses images of variousleaders or people to incite anger.
One year they had Black leaders as the victims du jour, even added sound effects when the characters died.
Year after that they had Jewish leaders as the in game victims.
If they REALLY wanted to be edgy, cutting edge and inciteful they should use images of Harvey Milk and other homosexual leaders.
And add the sound bite My butt is on fire when the characters die in the game.
THAT would get a rise out of people.
Great idea since conservatives are more gun friendly it would only make sense they cater to us to drive their profit margins up since that’s only what matters to them (liberal gaming software companies). I’d say add in Alinsky and other liberal ideaologues, all the Communist and Fascist dictators and tyrants, Perez Hilton, Bill Maher, and other irritating Hollywood celebrities...They’d make billions more in profits

lol...so what does dark’s coffee taste like? :-P
We used to do this for every Zot that we could catch ;)
Well, I did post brewing instructions for it...
Somewhere in the realm of post 85 or so.
May Mod have mercy on our forum souls for it..
lol.... had missed the brewing instructions post...hehe
If your coffee maker levitates, speaks blasphemous things, holds somebody hostage, eats your neighbor/their soul please don’t tell me.
I, uh, accidentally gave Deo the brewing instructions for the Coughee.
And I have not heard a report that they are still at normal ground level yet.
Is it time to gather search party yet?
