    Funny, Jessica.We have a saying at home, so very tru and sort of rude: Rules are prtttiouses everyone of us sleep with his own way! .the same applies to words and the piece you posted can easily be mirrored. Interestingly too, it could have actually been written by one of these conservative right wing christians that would have mainly described the part where you play the evil side and kill Christians, with a conclusion of hope: the game also allows you to be on the non – evil side Obviously, this is a really well written (lots of witds) fundamentalist piece preaching and appealling to one side .Do you think it could have looked like that too: Are you a true liberal? Do you just know deep down in your black Wal-Mart socks (note from Eric:I am sure they go there to, or at least the huge base of their electorate and they should not make fun of it!) that every word of the ACLU is the absolute literal truth and nothing dare be doubted and anyone who thinks that the CLINTONs are merely ambisexual omniblissful bloom of moist divine nondenominational honeydew melon should be strung up by their small intestine and beaten with sticks sharpened by Michael Moore’s teeth?Do you feel, furthermore, that human cretins like, say, Christians, and Jews and Wiccans and all those clean cut biz casual people with their jobs and families and easy laughter are a plague upon this fine and non-denominational land?Do you think that contemptible books like “The Bible” are not only blasphemy, but that you should probably go out into the street right now and behead a few meat eaters and perhaps mow down some pro-life with a Gatling gun just to deflect its horrible notions of the sacredness of your Metrosexuality? You do?Praise Hillary! Your video game has arrived.Behold, blessed children, the new and upcoming “Left Behind but entitled” video game, based on the freakishly best-selling series of moveon.org. It’s an ultraviolent, hilariously inept, wondrously accurate portrayal of what every true left-wing fundamentalist nut really fantasizes about after they’ve had one too many latte and have walked butt-naked a few hours to many under the sun in the gay pride parade, and have sufficiently indoctrinated their happily numb kids with tales of vile heteros and scary “christian” conservatives who want to teach them values, discipline, right from wrong, prevent drugs, tattoos, tramp looking clothe and brain damaging recreational deviances, and feed them with all the food mother earth provided us when we reached the top of the food chain..What’s the game actually about? How do you play?Imagine: you are a foot soldier in a leftist revolutionary group whose purpose is to make America as a ldictatorship of the liberals, and establish its worldly vision of the dominion of their views only over all aspects of life. You are issued high-tech military weaponry, and instructed to engage the enemy on the streets of New York City. You are on a mission — both a political mission and a military mission — to convert or kill Catholics, Republicans, Conservatives, red-necks, heteros, meat-eaters, hunters, fishermen, NRA members, soldiers, policemen, firefighters, gas guzzler and muscle car drivers, conservatively dressed people, and all the members of minority groups, Black Muslims, Buddhists, gays, illegals that drifted away from the only ideals of liberalism — especially moderate liberals, successful minority, mainstream democrats, non-metrosexual crowd, non promiscuous teens, non drugexperimenting young. Your mission is “to conduct physical and political warfare”; all who resist must be taken out with extreme prejudice.Ah yes, the neo-Liberal ideal. The ultimate dominionist political activist state, a smoking, reeking, post-apocalyptic vision of New York, a world teeming with nonliberals just waiting to be either converted or massacred by nothing less than a Liberal American Taliban, a world of righteousness and judgment and death, all in the name of one very nasty and bloodthirsty LEFT WING. It’s “Resident Evil 4″ for ACLU – PETA- Medicinal Marijuana – Metrosexual – cross and trans – gay types who eat too much organic food and often have promiscuous unprotected aborted sex ..blah blah blah . By the way let’s try to go back to the original topic now!
