sex 'n violence in the media??

I’m living proof that no matter what the hell a kid sees on TV the kid will grow up to be a normal human being. It’s not sex that people need to be worried about.

The only person sex has ever killed was the old man who took too much viagra. And he probably died happily.

No one on this planet gives a rat’s ass.

Just for general information, I DO !!

That’s not illegal in Arizona.

All I’m saying is that at the rate this is going the conservative news sites would be all over Mmph! if they caught wind of him (and the reaction will not be good at all)

If the public in general caught wind of me… they would move upwind… Just did a bowl of chilly…

There you go again with your stupid assed politics. What a dumb salamander!

But the conservative news media and church pastors will be raining the word ‘dangerous’ on you if they knew about you.

Plus they might call you Satan’s bellboy, I can’t help you if that happens.

wow, this is the first time i worte a really long post in a thread and it was ignored, i didnt even get attacked! yay!

Njrotc: You honestly think people around the world are angry at us because they’re jealous of our powerful world position? You make this huge big long statement about how the US, ever since it’s birth, has done nothing but fight everyone. Up until and including WW2 we had good reasons for fighting - People were attacking us. What country has openly attacked the US since? No one wants to fight us anymore because they know we’ll hand them their ass. And i;m fine with that.

But since then we’ve used our powerful position to corrupt the rest of the world. Yes, corrupt. There is a lot of anti-American sentiment popping up very recently for one very good reason: Our empire is on the brink of utter collapse, and most of the people living here are blissfully unaware because the talking heads on TV keep telling them “everything will be OK”. but we’ve done nothing but go downhill since the 40’s, on every single front. Economically, socially, morally, etc, etc.

When it was established, the USA was a beacon of hope to millions of people around the world, who came here to build themselves a life where in their own countries they could not do so. But we, as a nation, have evolved into a selfish nation. No longer a beacon of hope, we are a fist of demand. People hate us around the world because we force them to do things they don’t want to do. We have, effectively, enslaved the world. Now the slaves are breaking free, and it’s no wonder they are shoving it in our faces and gloating about it. We’ve been screwing them all over for the past 50 years. And it’s the fault of the politicians who have been given far too much power by people such as yourself. Easily pacified by this blind patriotic bullshit that gets crammed down kids throats.

Of course, you see us as the good guys. We ride in and save the day and the townfolk are all happy to see us. We’re the bad guys, man. We topple the governments of sovereign nations to set up our own US-friendly dictatorships. We’ve been doing that for decades, and now it’s all coming back to bite us in the ass. It doesn’t help that people like yourself are so eager to swallow the bullshit spewed about how leaving Iraq = “surrendering” or how, if I don’t support the war I’m not a true patriot.

if being a ‘true patriot’ means handing over my entire existence to a government that - admittedly - wants to do nothing but create war after war after war, then no,… I am not a true patriot. The difference between the US back when we WERE the good guys and the US as it stands today is the fact that before we would wait for the fight to come to us. Now we go looking for them.

EDIT: AHAHAHA you posted that one about 2 seconds too early :stuck_out_tongue:

Shoot, you could not help me anyway,salamander, what are you going to do, chase a tadpole? I have no fear of immature frogs. Get a grip will ya?

Yes the church often does operate from a position of fear. Though, I think it hypocritical to chastise someone for his or her beliefs when one’s own beliefs requires walking a higher path.

Such actions come from a position of weakness. Their beliefs need to be validated at every given moment.

But let’s stop this line of conversation before this topic faces the same fate as those that have come before it.

Don’t feed it. :ba:

I am not saying to ban it at all…

But if the law of the land dictates that all books of such nature , are forbiden, then it is just a “catch 22”

sorry man, sometimes Irony sucks…

In my opinion all books should be legal and for sale.

All books and views should be available for the public.
None should be suppressed.

I think it is the Hippocratic common view of it all that pisses me off the most.

I believe a lot of rape victims would have to disagree with you.

As for the banning of any books, etc. I’m a Christian, and I believe God gave us all free will to believe whatever we want to. If there is something in the media that I find offensive to my beliefs, I simply don’t watch/read/listen to it.

I’m having a hard time getting my thoughts across here… I guess what I’m trying to say is that there is a fine line between justice and censorship, and justice will always be defined by what society as a whole believes at the time. So unless everybody starts having the same set of values sometime in the near future (unlikely), there will always be what some people view as censorship. So instead of getting your nose out of joint every time you see something you consider offensive, simply realize that that complete freedom of belief and complete tolerance of others can’t co-exist, and just let them believe what they want to believe. I don’t know… I don’t think I’m communicating myself very clearly here. Hopefully I haven’t offended anybody. (Thinking about that statement, lol.)

ah, there we go! now it gets spicey! :yes:

okay first off 911 was an attack, we didnt go looking for the middle east, and we did nothing to provoke it. are only invoulvements with middle eastern affairs was supplying weapons to afagan fighters to repel the soviet union, which truely was an empire of want and oppresion. you can also count somalia, but thatwas mostly a united nations thing, but hey we were there.

the only goverment im aware that we toppled recently was iraq’s. and we all know how much better iraq was with a goverment that tortured and used biologicl weapons on it own country is than a nation such as ourselves. so who cares if we remake a country into something that resembles ours, were prosperous arnet we? were safe are we not? were succesful right? so if we build a democracy in iraq that is our friends then doesnt that mean were setting someone up for success? england is “us friendly” and democratic with its own paralament, and it is very succesful, same goes for many other european countries. so if we set up iraq and afganistan to be like most european countries then that only makes sense right?
iraq and afganistan were the only countries we have toppled and reformed, and of couse if we reform them they are going to be US friendly. its like you taking someone to the hospital who is bleeding in the street and tell them they have to hate you when they get out and have to be your enemy.
iraq is US friendly becuase we helped them, they mostly like their new goverment (even though i find it to be lazy) and they definately like it more than their previous one. afganistan didnt even have a real goverment, sure it was claimed to be controlled by the taliban, but it was mostly war tribes.
most of the fighters in iraq are forgien religious extreamists that hate us becuase were in their “holy ground”. they would hate anybody who set foot there who didnt belive the same way they did, it just happened to be us.
were not fighting to topple goverments, were fighting to save people from a another group of extreamists who say “if you dont believe as i do, i have a right to chop off you head”. that makes us good guys in my book

What i don’t get is this: People disallow kids to see boobs EVER, and make a HUGE deal about it when it does happen. Then, for some reason, adult women are surprised when guys do nothing but stare at their boobs at every opportunity.

i agree. if your sexuality is never fully explored then it leads to alot of awkward situations later life, ive seen it first hand.

NJROTC,

Next time you think about speaking for all us Americans, why don’t you hold a vote?

Thanks :smiley:

You’re DRAMA BOMBING again…

Nobody said this. He simply said that if you’re not allowed to sell books with incest, sex, and violence then the rule eliminates the bible.

THATS IT.

Mmph said nothing about banning the bible or killing christians or anything like that. So PLEASE keep the accusations to a minimum.
