    Default Hugging Elmo

    I was watching TV this afternoon and an ad for a new "Elmo" doll ad came on. This doll will actually hug your child and say "I love you". The whole idea creeps me out somehow. Just seems really wrong on some level. YOU should be hugging your kids and YOU should be telling them that you love them. This has to be confusing. I attribute some human emotions and feelings to animals, but NOT to machines (not yet, anyway).
    Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.

    I don't think I smell like a brewery. I was drinking Scotch.

    I thought that was a parents job?

    In fact my kids are in their 30's and I still hug them and tell them I love them when we see each other.

    EVERY TIME!!!

    Maybe Jeb Bush will buy a few million, and pass them out to illegal aliens, as a act a love. It's not like they committed a felony.
