a selfless act

I love people who are always on the alert and ready to save the children, no matter who they have to sue. Think about how rotten, depraved and immoral the world would be without such selfless people.

The complaint, filed Thursday in Washington County Circuit Court, seeks an order requiring Wal-Mart to either censor or remove the music from its Maryland stores. It also seeks damages of up to $74,500 for each of the thousands of people who bought the music at Wal-Marts in Maryland.

``I don't want any other families to get this, expecting it to be clean. It needs to be removed from the shelves to prevent other children from hearing it,'' said plaintiff Trevin Skeens of Brownsville.

I believe that Skeens and his attorney are setting a wonderful example for the children: we ain't allowing no F-word on a CD; that's really offensive. So, we'll try to fuck Wal-Mart. (forget about the money-- this isn't about money.)

Oh, yes, little children. This is how responsible adults behave.

I refuse to buy music at Wal-Mart because they only sell the censored versions.
Fuck 'em, I want to hear what the artist intended, and I don't expect Wally-world to raise my kids for me.

Yeah, same for the video games. Dammit, I fought alot of crowds to try and find leisure suit larry, and oh no they didn't carry that. They also wanted to censor George Carlin's book, because it had him in a picture of the last supper. Next thing you know they'll quit carrying soda because there are studies that it makes you obese. No shit. Google it.

I just saw this article and I can't stop laughing. The sad thing is, you won't find a judge who just throws this out, so Wal-Mart will settle, and then, either not sell any music at all, crack down so hard that nothing will be worth buying there anyway (not that there is now), or cut it wide open and sell everything.

Wanna bet on what happens.?

Raise children? If Walmart can't do it, nobody can.

Getting sued? Walmart will hammer their ass. They also now have a Department of Defense.

Since I've become poor, I see Walmart in a new light.

I think Walmart should take over the Federal Government.

Keep in mind that when someone says "it's not about the money," it's about the money.

So should every store stop selling these cds becuase they have in then "curse" words, so tell me who has never used a curse word in their live, perhaps parents need to be teaching kids values and morals themselves and why do peopel sue for money anyways esp if they infact claim it's for the children, so how do they divide the cash they win up, how do they know these"kids" have listened to the cds they are trying to ban, as i said before show me soemone whose never swore atleast once in their live and I'll show you a liar. I think if it's aaginst your religion to listen to such things then do nto buy it, I knwo for a fact wal-mart askes for ID when bying a explicit cd or adulted rated video game(here in Canada atleast).
