Recommended Posts

sorry, gotta come out and say it but the moscow mitch thing (in general, not the thread title per se) is just very dumb and silly

but anyways, glad to see the rod blagojevich innocence project is having a good day after their years of hard work

I guess at least in Biden's case it's more likely he had a brain freeze and didn't mean what he initially said. Though there is still a chance he's racist, and age is putting holes in his filter and allowing the racism to spill out.

Well there is a big difference between "Let's run the guy and gamble losing to Trump on him" and calling Biden a racist. I mean, if Biden does win the nomination, the first thing that will happen is the various right-wing Putin trolls on this board will be pointing out that board members called Biden a racist and how we need to vote third party for Jill Stein to stay pure.

Much as they took every opportunity to point out what a hard-right libertarian and plutocrat Clinton was.

we'll never get rid of all the guns, and there's always knifes. Or becoming a bomber. I think we have to figure out what the real root causes are and address them, or at least be able to identify them.

We are what we eat.  That's the cause.   Most people can handle Call of Duty without turning it into training for shooting real people.  But for some, it's that doorway.  For them, it was the video game.   Freemium game makers know that a small percentage of the players will be obsessive compulsive and buy everything in the game to follow their completionist urge.   They lose control.  And it helps pay the game makers' salaries.  Same with casinoes and degenerate gamblers.   They know.  It's part of the business model.  "Drink Responsibly."  They know their best customers are the ones downing 70 drinks a week who've lost all control.   The military knows these games are training material, which is why they use them as such.  But we, the oh so smart, can't quite see the connection.

We know what the causes are.  It's the things we'd rather not deal with.   Bad father figures, or none.  Can't address that one because single parent households must be glorified.  Then there's the whole culture of death, with games and movies that show societal breakdown as if it's our new porn, and since we keep buying it.... it IS the new porn.  Well?  The mass killers are the new rapists.  They don't want it to be just on the TV screen anymore , they want to make it really happen. 

So why our society is so fascinated with the thrill of our demise, that's the issue.  Why do we keep whetting the appetite of the crazies and then acting shocked when they act?  The sickness is more widespread than your list of undesireables.  It's in the feed.   We're all eating from the contaminated trough- - this diseased culture.   Not everybody gets killerized, but those who do do.  And we keep instructing the band to play on.  To play the siren song of crazymaking.   Rather than deal with that, it's far easier to use tragedy as a time for political gain by demanding people's guns.  Easier and horrid.   Neither shooting would've been prevented by that power grab.

Hey.   Comedy is worth a lot.  Points for having the balls to promote your old baller!

He entertains.   Same as trump.   It's an entertainer's game now.   Twits on twitter are 10 times as tall as regular human legislators.  It will be hot, though, when all the PC crowd has to vote for Biden who will have offended each and every one of them by election day, and it'd be especially rich if the left runs a racist against trump, and he blurts out worse things than trump ever has.

That is completely false. No one has been turned into a murderer because of video games. This mass shooter problem is an uniquely USA problem and the USA is not unique in its video game consumption. People all around the world like Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty, Doom etc in equal measure to US gamers. It's absolutely clear that video games are not a cause either at the societal or individual level.

These homicidal maniacs like playing shooter games because they are homicidal maniacs, they didn't become homocidal maniacs because they started playing shooters.

I really can't see a third party candidate picking up much from the left side this time around.

I don't have any issue calling Biden out on this shit now.  If he gets the nomination I will vote for him

Well that gun/mass shooting rant is so far off base I don't even know where to begin.  Kudos for blaming everything except a massive proliferation and availability of firearms.  

 

Your answer is (seriously?) father figures, culture of death (this has to be a joke), and video games?  Wow, those are some really interesting ideas.  You may be on to something.  I've heard that these other countries that don't have this mass shooting problem, they have zero divorce, no video games, television, or books.  Did you give this any thought at all or is this just some exercise in free style posting where any structure and critical thought are against the rules?  I mean your analogies don't even make any sense: "with games and movies that show societal breakdown as if it's our new porn, and since we keep buying it.... it IS the new porn."

The thing about porn is it's free, you don't have to buy it.  While surely we fetishize violence, why ignore so many larger ways in which we do this?  Instead it's video games?

Beyond that, serial killers have been around much longer than video games, the current state of the American family (although if porn is any bellwether here the American family is not ok), and this 'death culture' (as if thinking about death in art and entertainment as remotely new).  But I'm sure you know that.  This is just the same thing condensed into one act. 

Let's blame all the technology we can except the actual gun.  I mean, I doubt this could be called predictable consequence of enshrining firearm possession into the Constitution?

You know what pretty much every single one of the shooters has in common?  They're men who have a history of violence towards women.   

And thinking the Biden v Trump shit is funny... Anything to own the libs, eh?  Do you really think that it'd be the first time any of us have had to suck it up and vote for someone who we don't like?  I'm not marrying the guy.  All you edgelord, 'red-pill', types are so horrified at the idea of picking the least bad option you will jump through any hoops to make them suck equally in your mind.  Usually in the form of a Being Libertarian meme.

Is this a parody account?
