Terrorism? Incompetent Homeland Security? Ballooning national debt? Overextended military forces?
These are not the things foremost on Senators Lieberman, Clinton, Santorum, Brownback and Durbin. No, no, no. Video games are enough of a threat to warrant a sweeping CDC study:
This "is a big step toward helping parents get the information they need about the effect of media on their children," Lieberman said after the vote by the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions. Lieberman's two Republican co-sponsors of the bill are senators Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania and Sam Brownback of Kansas.
To be fair, it's actually a witch-hunt on virtually any kind of electronic media ... not just video games. Oh, did I say ... witch-hunt? Right, well ... what do you call a scientific study to further provide the groundwork for the exaggerations we've seen in the media and politics? Basically, since there continues to be no real link between these media and problems of the state ... real problems which would worry taxpayers like crime not problems like unruly kids ... they're just going to keep spending money until they find some more nothing.
