You know my my original thought on all of this is I think there's so much violence in these games I just don't know if the kids didn't compel the different should go. -- that's -- I think that's the whole thing. I believe that as long as the age appropriate I believe that some parents allow. They're ten and twelve year old to play games it was intended to play by seventeen and eighteen euros however. I know when I was a kid you know we played war we played cowboys and -- -- -- cops and robbers and crop and and and we had we had kept guns and our hands in fact. I actually have a gun.

At 878. 87 they are big -- somebody pretty jaguar opinion poll question. Still another study says kids who play violent video games would engage in more aggressive behavior. How -- you buy into this little a lot not of all you can cash to go to WW dot com. Or you can simply -- to secure -- well late 78668890870. Do you vote do you buy into this. All the way I'm I'm I'm trying to find basically what would agree because this week we seem to continue to get these type of -- Reports. Some suggest that. Kids should even be playing in -- -- a video games and we seem to be having this same discussion over and over again and it doesn't seem to have to change anything at all. Quite frankly. I think that the games are too violent. Especially for young kids. I'd I'd do believe that the parents. Little bit more attention apparently watched the games of parents tried to play the game parents sent down. What their kids and the games and and did their best to explain to the kids. This is not real this is something you would not wanna do. In relied you don't go rob and steal cars and kill people and chopped their heads off I think that maybe that would help. But I I don't anomaly perhaps -- actually do that would -- -- -- being a Jew plate of the kids play more video. More board gave up -- I played them more board games and I cover I remember I'm I'm I'm trying to remember as -- -- thing back. There was some type -- gain. Whom we'll -- operation or something and it will pair of tweezers and had to try to. Take things out in Allen and to be a little buzz if you didn't and of course I played I played electric football I don't know how many you remember. Electric football but little -- football in all you do is press the button. That was. A John's left -- that was the whole game. You know and you have little ball the kicker and a little little little cotton ball trying to kick it through the goal post. Net and I was never any good at that at all let's get back let's get back to the phone calls -- go to a Edwin Edwards how are you tonight. I'm Joba Ed and -- see you you wanna make a comment about the the first lady of the that is scheduled to be the keynote speaker. I only. And I. -- the First -- and also the mass of -- can't. I mean if if if your kid was graduating from high school would you want the partially -- to speak. Speaking and the different. It is. An Austrian you know -- -- you know that -- Would go to another woman -- -- -- to -- Obama and you'll be I didn't the. I don't I don't understand these people that. Say it would be a distraction first of all I think I can -- can recall. I think this is going to be at an auditorium and I believe. Seats around 6000 people so odd but I just don't understand. How people could think that this would be a distraction I I quite frankly that would be great. In the future to be able tell your children when I graduated from high school the first lady of the president of the United States was there and I think that would be great. Beckel economic you know if it was there again it's a lack of Obama -- into the -- army in Egypt. You know -- acknowledging the real reason which means you can you can read you know aren't being so big angry -- -- -- Why because of the president's wife. And may. Be because you know he's been in the Dutch resident. But I mean. You know. You know you know what I think it is and it in all honestly. There are some people that blamed the president. For every thing I mean if if -- if their checkbook doesn't balance that's the president's fault okay and -- I think. I believe they'll put the way politics as. And I think and I think unfortunately. That the the Republicans. Do whatever they tend to do to get people against the the Democrats from the president but however. I believe of the Republicans get in the Democrat to do the same exact thing this -- is just political war just builds on and on and I don't know what's gonna happen in the future are really don't. -- you -- get away from the -- court system altogether more it is you know mobile -- -- the best person. You know truth be the president had to attack. You know simply I've thought that for quite sometime I would like to see things change. Where the person that gets the most votes becomes the president and the runner up becomes vice president. That's it. -- There have to be real careful what you say the end. To imagine him that would work out where you know that that the anemic public displays of the country. Votes for the president. And the -- -- the person that comes in second almost decade in prison so. Rather than hit him have a vice president while not the personal terms and secondly the vice president. And it would definitely be more there maybe it. Thinks things through -- -- May have. Been little. -- from the original. And open JO. You know that the region and only. -- it. -- gloom and you know educator. And. The man oh man I think that is one young lady you would not wanna take to the senior prom that's for sure. Then. You'll like -- -- -- Yeah I am too of what type of games did you play growing -- board games or more video game. Want to beat. That had been Nintendo original Nintendo error. You know police incident. Saying. At least -- that -- yet. Are able sports game. And you know the bag and late stage in -- out there -- they did you know it is definitely go figure. Do you think it's okay for these these young kids mostly young kids I mean like. 910 years old to be playing these really violent video games. Not -- -- game and it surely try to didn't cater to don't don't industry. My children yet and it's you know anywhere you know it all but it went in. -- I think give a good point there because you know people. People the impression that people have the impression that only. Kids play video game but -- -- something. I have I have a son in law was in his -- and he plays a video games. Yes it. What doubles could be. Really -- -- it and. All right -- and I appreciate -- voting in okay. Thank you but let's go to Brian Brian how are you tonight. -- well thanks one on the on the -- you don't. That game. Played pretty much every voluntary being there's been an even when controversy mortal combat on an early ninety's. Out there have been corrected now than ever done anything stupid. And I just think it's in Italy anyway. Instead of blame and the kids -- to these opens stupid. At what age did you start play in the real violent games. Probably you'll be mortal combat would really the first one and and I actually knew I mean I'll give it Tom knew of that game. I about maybe eleven also. You think it's OK for young kids play those type games. You would -- well you would allow your children play him at that age. Well I think the -- -- They're not support the plan laid -- on camera -- me and meet some which are certain games and but yet RB has yet to be around seventeen no adult at least Mazzola. A bat and and it probably fit because I think you parents. You know they -- they explain you speak seat plane immediately and it. When our young -- The game you know they are real video game. And -- and it's always that question. And I think that's what the problem is a lot of these cute. Did your parents are doing their job you know -- you don't -- go on -- -- retain old school. -- it'll it'll spend a lot probably a public debate is go to work to -- put dinner on the table and -- and wrong. -- -- -- -- And it is not they're not involved but now. And and you gotta wonder how many parents to buy these games for the kids and don't even watch the game before -- -- -- to the kids. Why insists it's it's unreal it's the most Lee if during a member city. Itself and it happened. You know every time. If the video game and if you can go to school -- people staff people and -- other apparent is that simple. -- all time favorite movie monster. I had to save the alien in bidding. That thing. The alien and -- that was tough not tell you one thing the the alien in aliens that was that was a scary. Monster. -- -- -- -- thing you never knew who -- it's been imitated people can be whatever want. -- they have been a couple of versions of the thing. But the last one I saw I think the monster escaped in the body of a dog like it would call. Right it was a pretty cool to -- property there in 1982. Movie you know. -- pretty Internet. But it's it's hard to beat. Like god and Zola and king called hard to beat them. Well. You're a big and not just yeah obviously we could hit the ground but I'll check that out that was pretty good. No I didn't see that. I would recommend it in the god Villa King Kong that was really really -- A lot better enough thought it would be eight. But it's right up if one is kind of movies. Big mobsters and stuff like that. Yeah. The -- would recommend. All right I appreciate you voted and Brian. All right to -- -- late 78668890. Examining its go to Gary calling from what part of Missouri Gary. An hour north -- Joplin. Why -- -- listening online or at L 870. Saw little timer I do real radio PX thing. With the epithet. And a good -- how old timer I am my first -- was -- crystals that. You know that -- did it. And it tells the a lot yes the that's a bit. But a couple of quick points before I move on to my main subject. Any president or any president's wife at a high school graduation is going to be a security nightmare for all the other again. Matter -- it is. So you would be against it. Well thank how many days it's gonna take that bet all the people that shouldn't be attending the just so you could have won the IP I don't think it balances out and I don't care who the president is. It I guess not and I never I never thought about that so. They would have to. I -- the light -- come on my -- they would have to investigate. Or is that what to tell -- every one who won every and in the words everybody's name and have to be submitted and they would have to look into everybody's background. Who's going. Every single or. Oh my goodness. That's the hope you -- to. -- this alone I would be against. It any town you big city where the president or that firstly our. Just getting around that town while they're there can be in nightmare because they block off so much. Until they shut down the expressway is and things like that. Lot of cross street in -- buildings. Can't do business so just make that into high school graduation I mean it just seems like. It's not work that. In the long run for anybody. But what kind of games that you play as a -- We had board games that we played when we couldn't allow like monopoly. And strict ego. And we didn't have a scrabble we hadn't heard of that -- Chinese checkers chess. The kind of the run of the -- stuff. I tell you one game that I played one so with my sister and never could master -- I could not play Jackson. I couldn't get paths about -- that was it. -- that that was my limit right there. Well that and I coordinate this -- It's part of violent kids games in the violent plays that we did. We were kids we played cops and robbers and cowboys and Indians in war. But. 99%. That. What army donation -- -- dream that all up and make believe just about all. Video games or. In that respect a bit on the too real. But the other -- here very much right I believe and that the parents are falling down on the job. You could have a lot of its realism. In the games if the parents were. In game. And knowledgeable. And what their what their children do. And I think what happens a lot of times is the parents by the games -- -- again you -- I thought at one time couple years ago. -- only kids who play -- infamous not true I mean 2030354045. Year old people play these games and sometimes the parents. By the gains and the kids are watching the parents play the games and the -- play the game and sometimes against the parents better judgment because the the child is putting pressure on them to play the game that mom or dad as planned nothing that's -- on some -- -- -- extra violent games of some -- -- kids get introduced to them. I would disagree with that anyway. I have -- son in law that's a gamer. And I personally don't approve I think there's a lot more productive things he could be -- with this free time. But that's his decision. -- So as an adult he can make that decision but it. That children don't have a real solid basis to maybe sort out the game from possible reality. This does sound a little bit cool. Maybe. Put some of what's particularly younger people but. Only battle not to start playing in games like war cowboys and Indians. My dad went out Bradley -- one day. And took a couple of along. And we got to see what bullets did it. And it makes an impression on me. Much more so to see the blood and the dead animal than the word. This is what's gonna happen seeing it. Put an extra dimension into your understanding at least it did for me and my brother. Sounds like you learned a very good lesson. I spent 28 -- years in the military. Never had to use a weapon on anybody and just as glad. But on the other side is this is an accountable way I carry a gun to school for three years. On the school rifle team. Never was words. That. Up all the the youngsters that night competed well I don't think any outlets would ever considered. Using our target rifles on people.
