I'm Sam... yes, that Sam. Hi.
Bowling For Columbine, a documentary by Micheal Moore.
Micheal Moore... a simple man... with a shit load to say. He... is god. He exposes truth and what they don't show you behind the scenes. Bowling For Columbine is about the shooting at a school called Columbine high. Two kids... killing 12 students and one teacher. The main problem today is guns.
"TV's corrupting our children's minds."
"Music has subliminal messages."
The TV can only corrupt one kind of people... kids. What about the adults? When someone's killed in a shooting, a KID is killed by another kid in a shooting... the blame: TV; Music. What's different about kid's and adults? Adults... it's drugs, it's alcohol, it's everything else. But, kid's are corrupted by two main things. You blame the actors, even though you watch the same movie's. You blame the music, even though you listen to music. But, Noooooooooooooooooooo, it's the KIND of music, it's the KIND of artist, it's the appearance of the artist, it's the message you THINK they're sending. All kid's had left were music bcuz there was a huge deal about TV which was the second last thing we had. It's like you give us freedom and take it away, like teasing us everyday sssssssooooooooooo slowly, and confusing the hell out of us until we just crack! That's why President's are being assassinated, that's why kids are killing other people, you've pissed us off enough to. You give us the freedom to listen to whatever music we want, you give us the freedom to watch whatever the hell we want. Movie's have ratings to limit kids... Parent's bring them into movie's anyway... maybe we should blame the parents. But, if we blame the parents, you lose your votes... you lose the "discipline" of the kids... so, it's more chaos. Let us have our music, let the artists make their music. Let the TV productions corrupt our minds... it's keeping us at home, at least! Leave the music alone, it's the only thing that speaks for us. Leave the TV alone, our entertainment is limited! There's violence in almost everything... don't blame that on the kids! Don't blame that on the parents! Don't blame that on the stupid reality TV shows we watch! Don't blame the only thing that could be keeping half of the world alive, music.
Music CAN do incredible things, Music is what some people live for. And you're gonna take that away from them??? I would choose music over TV anyday. Music is a source of entertainment as well as expression. The reason kids crack and shoot the shit out of everything is bcuz we aren't listened to! Where is OUR freedom of speech?! How do we tell you how we feel when you won't listen?! Why can't we express how we feel about war and the government?? Is it just an ADULT thing?! You ARE training us to become adults, aren't you?! LISTEN to US! We're gonna tell you to sit the fuck down, and shut the fuck up! We need a say in everything. Kid's need to speak out. Tell us we don't understand what the hell you're talking about and what's going on.
Ya know what? That's your other reason for suicide, right there! You can't even call it suicide, it's homocide. The government chops our heads off and shits down our throats. Suicide isn't suicide anymore... it's homocide. The only other reason for suicide besides "attention." Where is our freedom? It's like when Bush lost those threat letters from Saddam and Osama and then all of a sudden forgot to tell us about them. Kid's are apparently our future... this society will fall faster if kids can't do anything or say anything. If we have no way of expressing ourselves, then how are we suppose to run a world that's FILLED with emotions? No one wanted to go to war. NO ONE. People can SAY they wanted war... but, thats bcuz they're not being transported from their homes to some foreign land. If the government is about "the people" then why have we done what the government says we should do? What ever happened to "Majority Rules"? If we can't make our own decisions, how do we keep this society SANE?!
Sometimes we miss what's really important, you wanna keep your kids alive... give them freedom. Freedom of speech, Freedom to listen to whatever the hell they want, Freedom to express themselves, Freedom to make their parents listen to what they have to say. Kids have right's too. Kid's deserve rights just as much as adults do. Making us believe what we don't want to is corrupting us, being tied down and SO limited is corrupting us. Corruption leads to chaos, chaos leads to homocide, corruption, chaos and even homocide leads to suicide. I don't believe in the whole suicide deal and blaming "your shitty life" for it... There is no real good reason to kill yourself, there is no real reason to hurt yourself when everybody else is already hurting you and killing you. It's giving up, it's backing down from what you believe. Suicide and cutting yourself or hurting yourself is letting everyone else step on you. It's YOUR voice, YOUR opinions, YOUR freedom that YOU have to get for YOURSELF. It's YOU, fuck the government, fuck anybody who puts you down, do things YOU want to do. You want freedom of speech, stand the fuck up and say whatever you need to say. Never stay bottled up... it gets you no where, which is where society is heading... and we're not that far from falling.
First Woman President, a government with emotions.
