PTC Wants You to Thank AGs That Supported California

October 19, 2010 -

The Parents Television Council (PTC) is urging its ranks to thank attorneys-general from the states that supported the California side in the Schwarzenegger vs. EMA case now before the Supreme Court.

The PTC’s website features the mailing and email addresses for AGs from Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Texas and Virgina in order to make the process easier.

But what if you don’t live in one of the aforementioned states? The PTC then would urge you to “please write to thank California Governor Arnold Schwartzeneggar and California State Senator Leland Yee for creating and supporting this law.” Lee especially might appreciate such correspondence, as he, “in particular has come under attack from the videogame industry.”

Perhaps, you, dear readers, might utilize the list as a primer for which attorneys-general not to vote for, should they be up for reelection this year, or running for other office (like Connecticut’s own Dick Blumenthal, who is gunning for a Senate seat).

It’s probably not advisable to look to the Governator for letter-writing tips however, even though he wields a mean letter-opener.

Yee has been under attack?  Since when?  I like the guy, even though I don't agree with him.  At least he's civil with us, unlike he-who-shall-not-be-named.  Hell, I wish there were more politicians who behaved as if the people opposed them were still human beings.

Re: PTC Wants You to Thank AGs That Supported California

Well, I now know who to send my letter to, thank you.

Re: PTC Wants You to Thank AGs That Supported California

I'm not sure that the PTC quite understands the concept of "attacking".  Yee and these buffoons are the ones trying to censor the game industry.  The response to this would be known as defending.

Wow.   Their logic is kinda scary... 'the american people own the airwaves, so do what we say!'

Re: PTC Wants You to Thank AGs That Supported California

A more accruate statement "We the PTC own the networks, so we will bully them into doing what we want.

I will not thank anyone that wants to take away my rights!

Re: PTC Wants You to Thank AGs That Supported California

Considering that Minnesota and it's taxpayers got burned with the legal fees from one of the past game-legislation efforts, I took the email provided and voiced my disappointment that the AG failed to learn anything from that incident. I most likely will not be voting for Lori Swanson any time soon.

 

Re: PTC Wants Idiots to Thank AGs That Supported California

I'll "thank" them when California inveitably loses their case before SCOTUS. Thank those motards for wasting taxpayer money on a show of support for anti-American ideals, for supporting a state that wasted its taxpayer money on a doomed appeal that could have better served for more useful purposes.

Thanked? No, the ten AG's that supported California deserve condemnation than gratitude that they didn't earn or deserve.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Hornets, Jack Thompson can geaux chase a chupacabra. Hell will stay frozen over for quite a while since the Saints won the Super Bowl.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Pelicans. Solidarity for the Saints = No retreat, no surrender. 2013 = Saints' revenge on the NFL. Even through the darkest days, this fire burns always.

quiknkoldAndrew : I dont accept any worded apology unless I can look the person in the eye when they say it. For me, he'd either have to make a video so I could read his bodylanguage, or actually do something. actions speak louder than words.10/20/2014 - 8:04pm
quiknkoldwell if they are looking for social pollution, Twitter is a great breeding ground for it. Its a breeding ground for deviance.10/20/2014 - 8:03pm
Andrew Eisenquiknkold - He had three tweets worth of apology the following day.10/20/2014 - 8:00pm
quiknkoldyou know, people keep saying Biddle's comment was sarcasm, but the thing is, Sarcasm doesnt translate well in Tweets. I took his words as really hateful, and unless I see an honest apology, I'm not going to be happy with him.10/20/2014 - 7:38pm

Andrew EisenBut again, this whole thing is just too damn vague to form an opinion on.10/20/2014 - 2:40pm
Andrew EisenWithout the original communication, it's impossible to say if it could honestly be misconstrued as a friendly suggestion rather than an employer directive. However, it appears that subsequent emails should have cleared up any doubt.10/20/2014 - 2:40pm
Andrew EisenThose aren't the owner's words, they're Chris Dahlen's. For what it's worth, we do see an email from Gonzalez stating "you've already broken the only rule we set for you!!!!!!!"10/20/2014 - 2:38pm
