Well, it's politicians that are the disease, of course!

I don't think electronic entertainment is any more harmful than politics. Rather than real concern, you can point to the suggested $90 million study and say with confidence that pork is the motive.

Is this just about giving game ratings in the US so children can't say buy GTA?

This has been happening in the UK for ages, still doesn't stop kids playing them though!

Venom

Ummm, we've already got ratings here too.

Supermarket Killer: Get back! I got a bomb here! I'll blow this whole place up!
Marion Cobretti: Go ahead. I don't shop here.


Marion Cobretti: You know that's bad for your health?
Punk smoking cigarette: What?
[looking threatening]
Marion Cobretti: [grabs cigarette away from punk's mouth] Me.
[pause]
Marion Cobretti: You need a new image.
[Cobra looks at punk's shirt, pulls it till it rips and then walks away with a smirk on his face]

That movie is one of the so bad it's good movies. Or maybe not. It's really bad.

It is horrible.

Doesn't even have mocking value.

Darkstar

:eek: You mean, mocking it doesn't make it better?

Chris

That is how bad it is.

Stallone actually mocks YOU for having seen it.

Cobra. Another masterpiece from Cannon Film Group in the 80s. Their set piece shoot outs resembled video games. And then another trademark seemed to be the use of rocket launchers. The end of Invasion USA is a duel with rocket launchers.

Its funny. As insanely liberal as the Clintons are supposed to be (as opposed to the moderates they are and the rest of the world sees them as), you know who they are buddies with now?

Bill Clinton and Bush Sr have developed a great friendship, golf, go to dinner, etc together etc. To the point where Dubbya has even mentioned it in jokes about his fathers tastes. Apparently Bush Sr changed his mind about Clinton during the Tsunami relief efforts and Clinton slept on floors and gave up private space completely during traveling for Bush. Apparently Bush walked in on Bill asleep on the floor.

And Hillary is now buddy buddy with her husbands old arch rival, Newt Gingrich (no joke at all, although it summons a few to mind). They have worked on quite a few proposals together i the last 2 years. He has made many public remarks about her chances of nomination and winning the election in 2008. He has also hinted at possible cross party tickets.

So creepy...

then again, Bush Sr is a moderate conservative, and Gingrich is a core Republican as opposed to the extreme nonsense we ahve now.

I think people can get along once they're out of politics. The stakes are lower then. Newt had a reputation for playing rough, but now he can do the pundit rounds. Clinton and Bush have both gone as far as anyone can go in US politics. Might as well play golf and share stories. Iraq, Somalia, Congress, etc. are somebody else's problem now.

But Newt and the Clintons aren't done with politics. Newt has been caught on tape admitting that he is just kissing up to the Wicked Witch of the Democrats (his words) to keep his name in the national media for his up coming presidential bid. Madame Clinton has been caught on tape saying she's only hanging out with that dried up crazy freak (her words) to look like she can work with the opposition for her political future needs.

Bush 41 is definately out of it. But--- if "they" (whoever "they" are) can convince Jeb to run for Prez, then he's already admitted he'd be out campaigning for Bush 44 or Bush 45. But it seems that Jeb doesn't think its worth the additional hassle to try to be president, let alone to actually be president. But hey, who knows what the future will bring?

I think Newt's odds of becoming the Repuk's candidate in 2008 is slightly less then Venom getting to drive down Hello Kitty's chocolate highway live on Hustler PPV. But national politics are strange enough that it can't be ruled out completely.

He's dreaming about us being naked once again.

Darkstar

That's not true. I'm dreaming of Hello Kitty being mostly naked. She's dressed in one of those wicked looking Amazonian styled dom outfits. You are covered in head to toe in one of those plastic pour on things, Venom. The less we see of you, the better. ;)

Venom
17-03-2006, 21:51:02
She doesn't have the rack for one of those outfits.

Darkstar
17-03-2006, 22:57:18
What? Still? She just hasn't been getting enough Cow Growth Hormones yet, obviously. Damned free range, no hormones California meat! How are we to ever get her to full Dom status so that we can charge all those Poly virgins $35/month for her to insult them via webcam at www.hellokittykicksyourarse.com ?

Deacon

Dried up crazy freaks and wicked witches. Sounds like Oz. Or Washington. Newt is gonna have to do more than click his heels together to be nominated by either party. My guess on 2008 for the GOP is the governor of MA, Mitt Romney. Democrats, I dunno. Whoever it is, senators need not apply.

Shining1
18-03-2006, 02:22:31
That implies Hillary is going to get nominated. WTF?

Darkstar
18-03-2006, 05:13:29
There's some small buzz that she's working towards that. Whether she is or isn't, only she would really know at this point.

HelloKitty
18-03-2006, 06:15:39
How did anyone construe this to mean Newt was ever going to get on a ballot again?

Darkstar
18-03-2006, 11:32:14
It's from a few somethings that Newt himself has said in the last few years. Supposedly, he's been telling his closest media friends "off the record" that he will pitch in his hat for 2008 at the slightest call from the Republican voters. I suppose that even the people his campaign pays to put him forward might decide not to... but otherwise, it's just too easy to arrange a "DraftNewt.org" site and have 10K worth of names on it. But, we will see what happens. It's a long span of political time between now and the meat of campaign 2008.

Deacon

Hillary isn't a done deal, but she has been doing a posture change of late. National security is what decided 2004, though the importance of that issue and what defines it can certainly change between now and 2008. At any rate, by opposing the sale of P&O to DPW she appears to be banking on ill will towards faraway places of which we know little.

The problem of Chamberlain's day has been flipped. Now we're willing to do hard things like kick the door in and shoot up the place. But we're not prepared to do easy things like allow a routine transaction by a company located in a country that has given us assistance.
