Already do. Well, these idiots should have never been voted into office in the first place, but that's another story.

This blows. Games don't need a ton of violence in them for me to like them, but there are MANY adult games out there that I'm a huge fan of. I see even only the proposition of this making many devs second-guess whether they want to put out an adult game, or try to make more money selling an E-Rated game. Getting really sick of this govt.

Indeed. Biden's certifiably insane as far as I'm concerned. Between this and his shotgun comments not too long ago, I think dementia's hitting him pretty hard.

Lol, Of course old Plugs Biden wouldn't have any problem with taxing violent video games. Hell, he and the democrats ain't never heard of a tax that they didn't like...

Can we rename this thread to "What happens when a vice president completely gives up hope on holding the main office"? Clearly he didn't consider things like freedom of speech.

Then again, if you would've asked any Founding Father how long they expected the government created by the Constitution to last (even with amendments), I'm none of them would've given it more than a century.

They would've expected another revolution of some sort, or at least a new general Constitutional Convention to fix whatever flaws the future government under the Constitution they were working on developed.

lol who says that's not happening in the "inevitable" future...

This path leads us back to Salem Witch Trials.

While the rest of us support a woman's right to choice, pro-advancement of science and education, moderate gun availability with at least keeping tabs on gun owners, support equal rights to LBGT community, equal pay in the workforce, finding a working solution for illegal immigrants where they pay taxes and contribute to society, wring in Government spending to be more efficient and thorough without cutting actually used services to citizens, and revamping the tax schemes so that it is impossible to control 99% of the value of the free market and pay less taxes than the other 99% combined. All the while teaching tolerance and understanding of others, and accepting any of faith and faithlessness.

This path leads us to United Federation of Planets.

You don't seem very tolerant or understanding towards people whose worldview doesn't mesh with yours...

Indeed. There are so many things wrong with that post I'm not even bothering.

The video game industry is worth billions, it's only a matter of time before the government starts figuring out ways to milk us for that too.
