You still need psychological help if you can't see that telling them that, then telling them to eat a bullet isn't....off your fucking rocker crazy.
More redneck than anything else, I'd say. The United States was built on people objecting to laws on moral grounds, and flagrantly violating them. Generally the laws that originally governed this country when it was a colony were wholly unfair. They are unfair again, and I see little benefit to bowing to the whims of the filthy rich.
A lot of the "crap" and "freeloaders" that got "flushed out" are good friends of mine. Quite a few of the people I work with are Katrina refugees, and they are some of the coolest, hardest working people I know.
Ironically, I can suggest good filtering software. There was one I found for Firefox, called Glubble. While it is a pain in the patootie, it does allow me total control of the content, administration is password-protected, and attempting to close it out without the proper admin authorization shuts down the browser entirely. it makes my son happy, because I can enable things like Ninja Turtles and Chaotic, and he can watch episodes online.
It also comes with links to age-appropriate stuff, like Clifford for my five-year old. This is customizable based on age.
I even have some games-for-kids sites on there, just for kicks. He likes driving games. A warning -- you will need it installed on his browser and yours (if they're separate -- my child has his own desktop (inherited when I upgraded). You just disable it on your browser when your not administrating and you can surf normally.
Of course, eventually he'll graduate to full Net use, but it's idea for what he wants to do right now, and it seems to protect him from Porn pop-ups and malware traps.
Avast rocks. Catches stuff on web pages and web *searches.* (favicons infected with trojans). I've never had a botched install routine, updates itself every day (sometimes more than once), and I've used it for years. Never had a virus slip past it. I even use free net virus scanners (like McAfee) as a bench test.
Doesn't slow down any of my computers, either. Not my XP desktop (1.33 GHz with 512 MB RAM) nor my dual-core laptop with 4 GB RAM. As with anything, YMMV.
Easy. Package it with some unobtrusive DRM -- DRM that includes levels, monsters, critical files that make the game work. Maybe include a code that, when it hits the servers, downloads those critical files. Now, what if those critical files were maybe hooked to the unique IP address of the person registering the game, so that they won't work on someone else's machine when they download it as a torrent?
This can be done. I know it can be done. The how is up to the developer.
Additionally, make the manual available for purchase. Then, have random questions about the third word in the second paragraph of Section V, Subsection XXIV or some such. Piracy as "prevented" in the 80s.
And send a takedown note along to Replacementdocs.com so that they don't have a PDF version of your manual for download.
There's a not well-known game called Two Worlds, which I actually liked better than Oblivion, truth be told. They have an online activation thing, like Vista, but it's a one-time deal, and they have promised to release a patch killing the activation if for whatever reason they stop support for the game.
Every company that uses Dumb Restrictions on Media should do this, and stick to it.
The Incredibles, was, in a word, incredible.
Better by far than alot of the superhero fare nowadays. Enjoyed it more than Dark Knight, both Fantastic Four movies (which seem to care more about Jessica Alba half-naked), and Spider-Man 3.
That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed Watchmen, though. It was fairly faithful to the comic, and that's mainly what I wanted.
The purpose of the Second Amendment is very simple. Once the American Revolution was underway, King George's generals were confiscating weapons from the Colonials. The right to bear arms is expressly for a well-organized militia to repel the British. Anything else is window dressing.
Any gun nut who says a polite society is an armed society has never been shot over a disagreement. What?
The Second Amendment was very clear on the reason why. It's just that the first part of that sentence is always ignored.
