True honor

There are 7 comments on the TwinCities.com story from Aug 31, 2010, titled True honor. In it, TwinCities.com reports that:

To those juveniles of all ages who can't wait to play the soon-to-be-released video game, "Medal of Honor", I would suggest they step away from all the games they are playing and read a few books about real-life Medal of Honor recipients.

"We're still recovering from the Bush presidency and Republicans who controlled Congress for most of those years. " The country was in great shape during 6 of those years, the 6 controlled by Republicans. It went to hell the last two, when Democrats were in control of congress. Just want to set the record straight.

I think Deborah is right. But I also think the Democrats should go too. Politicions are our worst enemy. Most are lawyers paid to do the wants of big money.

The issue of the Medal of Honor game gave me two thoughts:

yes, parental oversight would be wonderful. If a parent would make their kid read one book for every video game they bought, especially one on Medal of Honor winners, that would be awesome. But of course, parental oversight is usually lacking.

My other thought was about the nature of these games. I went skeet shooting last year, and had a ball. Do kids see these games as just an on-line way to do target practice with ever more interesting targets, but really not intending or seeing harm? I think so. I will ask my nephew when I see him - if instead of just shooting at someone to get points, you instead had to hold someones head under water, while they slowly died and you had to see that and do that to get points - would they still enjoy it? I don't think they would.

Enough about Bush, Ms. Johnson. Here are the facts today:

Mr. Obama spent 18 months begging to be given the job of President. He promised solution after solution, change, and hope. He got the job and has proven to be not only ineffecitve, but damaging as well. He bows to foreign leaders, refuses to recognize sworn enemies of United States (muslim extremists and islamic terrorists), and is crippling the country economically.
