Game stop

Mass media sources have gone wall to wall with coverage of Aaron Alexis, the Navy shooter..As HORROR REPORT reported early this evening, there are reports that Alexis heard voices in his head and said someone was following him sending vibrations into his body..

There could be debate as to whether Aaron Alexis was a victim of mental illness or MK ULTRA-like programs, but that is being pushed aside. The typical blame goes to guns.. but something else is joining the culprit category in this incident: GRAND THEFT AUTO.

The media is now reporting the gamer world of Alexis and how he could be in a game 'all day and all night.'

The HORROR REPORT wrote early this morning that this was coming--we saw it early because Alexis was a gamer who vanished from reality into a world of violent videos, or so we're told..

Tonight the game blame game went further than usual.. Ed Schultz blamed GRAND THEFT AUTO on MSNBC tonight (Which  means about 25 people saw it) and said the game makers have fostered an environment in which games such as that are creating monsters .. Schultz said

“It’s got shooting people, stealing cars and beating up hookers,” Schultz said of the game. “If you’re a parent, and you allow your son or daughter to watch this — even if they’re beyond 18 years old — you’re a lousy parent in my opinion, and you play a role in this.”
And he's right.
It is about shooting people, stealing cars, and beating up hookers. And I also tend to agree that parents who haphazardly disregard what games their child is playing are probably lousy parents, at least sometimes.
I still think this is a delicate issue of First Amendment rights vs parental duties..

As a father, I respectively will be a dictator when it comes to certain things within the confines of the home. And perhaps violent video games will wait until a year in the future when I know my child can understand the difference between the violence and reality. With that said, it would appear that a newfound urge for game banning is upon us, a campaign that would make Tipper Gore tip with glory..

Just as the Second Amendment cannot be blamed for Newtown, I think it's a cop-out that the First Amendment is a cause of the Navy Yard shooting in D.C. ..

At the same time, my mind in conflicted by the game blame.
I know, as you may know, that GRAND THEFT AUTO has ties to mind control programs, Project Monarch, and sex kitten. (MORE HERE on that) .. so I find myself somewhat hard-pressed to defend a game that, in most respects, disregards human life as trash and allows you to mercilessly kill people.

Do games cause people to kill? Probably not. Do they help inspire? Not likely.. But do they desensitize? I think that one is possible. The bigger question, though, is to ask: Are they meant to desensitize?

I dismiss calls to ban games, just as I dismiss calls to ban guns.
Amendments must be respected.
Parental  duties must be  adhered to.

Most importantly, some thought behind who you support when you support mass entertainment conglomerates should be taken into consideration...



STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..

Before discussion.. take a glance:

My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…
