Senator Joseph Lieberman, determined to stop this
annoying thing called "Freedom of Speech" that we have in America,
announced, earlier this week, that he is pushing forward with legislation he
wrote that would give the Government the power to stop movie studios from
marketing "damaging" movies to kids, and also give the Government the
power to determine which films are "damaging." Lieberman is
confident that he will get a majority Senate vote on his bill, and, if people
don't write their Senators (hint, hint), saying that they are against this
legislation, he just might be right. In yesterday's Wall Street Journal,
Censor Lieberman said that he "is concerned that some of what comes out of
the entertainment industry is having a damaging effect on our
children." Because of this "concern" that he, one
individual, has, he is willing to take away all of our rights, as adults,
to watch movies that big Government consider inappropriate for "kids"
(a person under 18). You may say that all Lieberman is doing is stopping
the "marketing" of these films (God knows he's said it
enough). I say to you that if the marketing stops, the films will stop
along with it. That's Capitalism, gang. If you're a fan of movies,
or Freedom of Speech, please take a few minutes and go to http://lieberman.senate.gov/newsite/contact.cfm?lowsrc=true,
where you can send Senator Lieberman an email, reminding him that it is NOT
against the law for somebody under 18 to go to an R-rated movie, and that it is
not against the law for an R-rated movie, some of which are indeed appropriate
for "children" under 18, to be marketed to "kids."
After that, please write to your Senators and tell them that you are opposed to
Lieberman's Media Marketing Accountability Act legislation. If you don't
know who your Senators are, or how to contact them, send
me an email, and I'll send you the info. you need to make your voice heard!
This update was best viewed with the "Andy" font. I probably should have told you that earlier, huh?
Another totally JUICY update on Joe!
