Grand Theft Auto - the latest Weapon of Mass Distraction

What an absolutely pathetic waste of taxpayer dollars:

H RES 376 2/3 YEA-AND-NAY 25-Jul-2005 7:23 PM
QUESTION: On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Agree, as Amended
BILL TITLE: Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that the Federal Trade Commission should investigate the publication of the video game : San Andreas to determine if the publisher intentionally deceived the Entertainment Software Ratings Board to avoid an Adults -Only rating

That's right, the house of representatives wasted our taxpayer dollars to spend time paying attention to a video game!

Whats the matter guys? Couldn't find a family struggling with a long term debilitating condition to grandstand about? No baseball players and steroids to get you in the spotlight? Sheesh! NONE of them cared, by the way, when Grand Theft Auto was just a violent video game - Nope, nope, it wasn't until the hackers opened up video game sex that folks in Congress decided to pretend they cared. Yup, the grand ol Puritan America double standard - Violence is good, sex is bad.

More brought to you by the idiots in Washington.

Well, at least Rock Star Games has to be lovin the free publicity. For more on this waste of time click here.
