For those of you that are familiar with Jack Thompson, the idiot on a crusade against GTA and The Sims 2, he's Penny Arcade is laying the smack down hardcore.

Mr. Thompson said he'd donate $10,000 to charity if someone developed a game featuring the murder of various video game executives and game store clerks.  Of course, when someone did just that (by modding GTA, ironically enough) he renegged and said his challenge was "satire."

So, Penny Arcade did it for him.  They cut a check for $10,000 to the Entertainment Software Association Foundation, which I thought was a hilariously appropriate choice.

Apparently, Mr. Thompson just won't learn his lesson.  He's attempting to have Gabe and Tycho arrested over the debacle.

What an idiot.

Various military installations, naval ships, nuclear reactors, etc. via Google Earth.  Very spooky.

I'd ask him about his dealing with global take over and if he left I'd file suit against services not rendered.....I wonder if he puts out on the first date?

You see, this is why only cops should have guns!  I always knew that cops had some kind of Jedi-like mastery of their weapons that mere subj... err, citizens could never hope to attain.

I'm thinking we should execute by firing squad anyone who misues a firearm.

1) It gives guns a bad name...we don't need that.  The guns didn't do anything to you  Cry
2) It would help the global elite lessen the population of Earth to 500 million (look it up on the Georgia Guidestones and in the UN charter!)
3) If we really believe in evolution then these people aren't the "fittest" so they shouldn't survive.

I thought this particular smiley was worth a Random Stupidity post.

There is quite a story behind this picture, which lead to Jack Thompson calling for the creator's incarceration.  Yeah, you only think I'm kidding...

After stalling in Congress last year, the firearms industry protection law finally passed.  S. 397 is on its way to President Bush's desk, and I quite certain he'll sign it.

http://today.reuters.com/news/NewsArticle.aspx?type=domesticNews&storyID=2005-10...

This law is freakin' common sense.  If someone gets shot with a Colt Python during a drug deal gone wrong, how in the world is Colt responsible for that?  Colt didn't sell the gun to the drug dealer, and Colt didn't pull the trigger.

This law should end such nonsense.

This is a fantastic article about the state America is in these days.  The author gets bonus points for using the term "sheeple," which I've never seen outside of firearm/survivalist websites.  Enjoy!

Quote:
A nation of sheeple

Oct 19, 2005
by Walter E. Williams


President Bush informed the nation, during a press conference, that he might seek to use the U.S. military to quarantine parts of the nation should there be a serious outbreak of the deadly avian flu that has killed millions of chickens and 60-some people in Southeast Asia. That's the second time Bush has expressed a desire to use the military for local policing. The first was in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The Posse Comitatus Act (18 U.S.C. 1385) generally prohibits federal military personnel and units of the U.S. National Guard under federal authority from acting in a law enforcement capacity within the United States, except where expressly authorized by the U.S. Constitution or Congress.

Enacted during Reconstruction, the purpose of the Posse Comitatus Act was to severely limit the powers of the federal government to use the military for local law enforcement. Would Americans tolerate such a gigantic leap in the federalization of law enforcement? I'm guessing the answer is yes. In the name of safety, we've undergone decades of softening up to accept just about any government edict that our predecessors would have found offensive. Let's look at some of it.

The anti-smoking movement might be the beginning of the softening up process. They started out calling for reasonable actions like no-smoking sections on airplanes. Then it progressed to no smoking on airplanes altogether, then private establishments such as restaurants and businesses. Emboldened by the timidity of smokers, in some jurisdictions there are ordinances banning smoking in outdoor places such as beaches and parks. Then there are seatbelt and helmet laws that have sometimes been zealously enforced through the use of night vision goggles. On top of this, Americans accept government edicts on where your child may ride in your car. Americans sheepishly accepted all sorts of Transportation Security Administration nonsense. In the name of security, we've allowed fingernail clippers, eyeglass screwdrivers and toy soldiers to be taken from us prior to boarding a plane.

We've accepted federal intrusion in our financial privacy through the Bank Secrecy Act. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, says, "More than 99.999 percent of those [who] had their privacy invaded were law-abiding citizens going about their own personal financial business." Most recently there's the U.S. Supreme Court Kelo decision, where the court held that local governments can take a private person's house and turn it over to another private person. Politicians have learned and become comfortable with the fact that today's Americans will docilely accept just about any legalized restraint on their behavior.

You say, "Hey, Williams, but it's the law!" In the late-1700s, the British Parliament enacted the Sugar Act, the Stamp Act and the Townshend Acts, and imposed other grievances that are enumerated in our Declaration of Independence. I'm happy that we didn't have today's Americans around at the time to bow before King George III and say, "It's the law." Respectful of the Posse Comitatus Act, President Bush has suggested that he'll ask Congress to amend the law to allow for the use of the U.S. military to enforce regional quarantines. Whether Congress amends the law or not, Bush has no constitutional authority to deploy military troops across the land. Why?

The U.S. Constitution's Article IV, Section 4 reads, "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence." Coupled with the Tenth Amendment, "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people," this means short of an insurrection, the U.S. military must be invited by a state legislature or executive. Any federal law that violates these constitutional provisions is null and void and can only be enforced through fear, intimidation and brute military force.

Very nicely written article. This avian flu panic is crazy. They are just building it up to be inevitable. Its strictly a bird flu right now, it would still have to mutate to kill human beings. The panic over a breakout of the disease and the timing of the Bush ruling that puts Avian flu on par with Smallpox and other deadly diseases, is very suspicious.

If anyone has read Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan book series this is all too familiar.

Debt of Honor has a commercial jet slamming into Congress, wiping it out and leaving Jack president. The book after that, Executive Decisions, has Iran distribute a disease similiar to Ebola in the United States. Martial law is declared and everything is locked down while the US goes into Iran and kicks balls. The next book, The Bear and the Dragon, puts Russia and the US at war with China over oil. Now this will be different because it is likely that Russia would side with China in the event of a war.

Recently China has been found to have understated its defense budget by about 65 billion dollars. They are building up their forces to fight a conflict bigger than Taiwan. A couple months ago China's Defense Minister gave a rousing speech to his soldiers saying that China must invade the United States by 2008 to protect its intrests and gain land. Rediculous.

Interesting tho.
