Onward Kiddie-porn Warriors

Alberto says: Oh no you don't!
In this meat and potatoes election season, nothing gets the GOP base more riled up than SMUT! And when it comes to smut, nothing is more disgusting than kiddie-porn! But don't worry, Republicans have got yer smut solution right here, and the House Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations is just brimming with nifty ideas. Here are some examples:
Forcibly blocking off-color Web sites: Internet providers should block, "American predators from using U.S.-based platforms to access child pornography at any site worldwide."
Cool! But...uh...who decides what sites to block and how many thousands are you gonna have to hire to vet all of those sites?
Eavesdropping on what Americans are doing online: Rep. Diana DeGette (D CO), "I don't think that people who are raping 2-year-old children on the Internet have any right to privacy."
Nor anybody else for that matter. Oh sorry--keep forgetting--nobody but pornographers worry about their privacy on the Internet.
Making certain hyperlinks illegal: The way we do with off-shore gambling sites.
How do you make a hyperlink illegal? Illegal to click it? Illegal to receive it? What about email?
Dispatching "search and destroy" bots: Rep. Greg Walden (R OR) proposes that search and destroy bots be launched to scour the Internet for illicit content.
This is the best! Get one naughty email from pornographer, and the Feds blow up your computer. BOOM! I can't wait.

great.

what will they think of next.

assholes!
Ah froggy. When I wrote more than your original, in reply to this post, I thought twice about pinning it up here.
I might just waste some scrap paper over on my site to reply.
Good post.
much like the flag crap, this is unenforceable and outrageously stupid. WTF?!?
Anything to detract from the important stuff..what will the asshats think of next?

men who love their parakeets and what they do behind closed doors.

Women that secretly wish to become scoccer players and how they suffer in silence.

If we toss some biblical crap in there..I bet they bite :p
Gary...what won't they think of? They've come up with some zingers there.

Cartledge, honored to have you dissect with your usual zeal.

Helen, more than unenforceable...unimplementable. Well...not without simply taking control of the whole Internet lines, servers, NAT, and all.
Too true!

I just don't understand what it is going to take to get them to work together on the real issues facing our country?

Does the only issue that really matters to them have to be baseless (or full as the case maybe) pandering?

We are at war for God's sake...How does porn fit into that reality?

Well duh...War on Porn! Now hush up before you give them any ideas.
War on Porn. Egads. The perfect storm of sex and violence. I say let 'em go nuts on the porn industry. It's less time they can spend murdering and stealing.
It is a clever play on their part. See the logic?

If you support privacy, you support kiddie porn.

Brilliant.
dissect with your usual zeal.
Funny that, I never did dissection. Most of my school mates did a pigs eyeball and a frog.
I guess it's never too late to catch up.
porn, war, flag burning, where is Carrie when you need a "God Loves America Best" Comment....

internet porn, perfect. excellent. brillant in fact!

we have to save the poor kiddie's from the nasty internet preditors before we feed, house, educate, or give them health care . . . . absolutely logical.

there has got to be a toy kiddie we can place around for this one.

Now that's just cruel!
They just don't have any real concrete things to do anymore...so they probably throw darts at a board and whatever they tag is the deal of the day.
Yes! Let's just block it all! Great idea! They have done such a great job of preventing identity theft and securing government web sites and laptops, of course they'll find this a piece of cake.
(End sarcasm here)

Another thing to keep people from looking at the real issues. And from a technology standpoint, virtually impossible--unless the government owns the and controls the Internet like in China.

And a chill fell over the room...
Hmmm, if they can make email illegal, I've got some spam I'm pretty sick of.

Also, why can't they make telemarketers REALLY quit calling me?
