I'm from the Government, and I know what's best for you.

Decency in video games act. Bleh.

Friends, you need to make sure your congressman knows they need to keep their grubby paws out of "decency" legislation of any kind, particularly video games. I mean, really, there are few things that sound more orwellian than legislating "decency." What's next, the thought police? Oh I forgot, we already have laws that change based on what you are supposedly thinking at the time.

No government agency has our best interests in mind. This is not about "protecting children." This is about grabbing power under the auspices of the public interest. Do you really want the FCC, or another agency like it, clamping down on video games like they've clamped down on radio and TV? It's sickening. People need to stop delegating their parenting to the Government and mind their own business, not to mention mind their kids.

NINTENDO IS NOT YOUR GODDAMNED BABYSITTER. For that matter, no media should be. Put the welfare of your family ahead of your own personal creature comforts and desires for once in your selfish lives, you worthless, brainless sheep!
