The Purple Parade is marching in full stride to the beat of that 'other' drum we all hear, but generally ignore.

QuoteTake-Two Interactive Software, Inc., through its Rockstar Games, has distributed tens of millions of units of its Grand Theft Auto games to kids. The FBI and Secret Service found that games like these trained teen killers for their massacres at Columbine and other schools like Paducah. We increasingly have a nation of "Manchurian children," ready, willing, and able to kill.
QuoteJack Thompson's nearly 100 national and international television appearances, hundreds of radio interviews, and nearly 200 college campus appearances detailing the aggressive marketing of adult entertainment to kids, with the help of other dedicated citizens, have blown the whistle on this industry, and they are on the run.
QuoteThe American Psychological Association issued its blockbuster findings in August 2005 proving that violent video games lead to violence by teens. The US Supreme Court ruling of Roper v. Simmons this year endorses the brain scan studies emanating from Harvard, Indiana, and Michigan State universities that prove violent games are processed differently in teen brains, thereby causing dangerous copycatting behaviors.
QuoteThe neuroscience proves the danger of these games, and it provides the basis for the laws that Michigan, Illinois, and California have passed to keep these adult games out of the hands of kids. Yet the Entertainment Software Association, the lobbyist for the video game industry, is filing lawsuits trying to strike these child protection laws down.
QuoteJapan won't allow these adult games to be sold to Japanese children, but Sony is selling them to American kids. The UK won't allow Grand Theft Auto to be sold to anyone under 18, but Rockstar's Scottish design studio makes and sells Grand Theft Auto to our US kids, a game in which you have sex with a prostitute and then kill her.
QuoteIn 2006 Rockstar plans to release Bully, which allows you to bludgeon your classmates and teachers--a Columbine simulator. Jack Thompson has filed a lawsuit to stop the release of Bully, but the Blank Rome law firm of Philadelphia is fighting him in a courtroom to make sure kids in your community can buy it. Blank Rome is the most powerful law firm in America. It has given more money to President Bush and the GOP than any other.
QuoteUnlike alot of the other stuff going around, I like the approach you took of simply pointing out his many fallacies rather than inject your own counter fallacies.
