Congress is crazy about online sex.

June 27th, 2006

A story on CNET outlines some of the crazy (and certainly anti-First Amendment) ideas Congress is considering in the battle against the online porn industry.

I could write a lot of different comments on the various proposals, viagra usa cheap but one quote in particular just begs to be called out:

Cliff Stearns, generic viagra sick a Florida Republican and chairman of a consumer protection subcommittee, cited a New York Times article about an adolescent boy who charged customers to watch him perform erotic acts in front of his Web cam. “We’ve heard about one Web site that had 140,000 images of adolescents from their Web cam,” Stearns said. We need “to do whatever we can in our power to protect the innocent.”

I just have to ask, how “innocent” is a kid who is CHARGING people to watch him masturbate in front of a web cam?

    More than just anti 1st amendment… anti 5th amendment! Like the search and destroy bot that would destroy computers that had child pornography… or the government agency that would decide these things absolutely so that “we don’t have to wait for the courts”. After all… who really needs due process.

    Yeah, that’s such a target rich article.

    I was so overwhelmed with possible rants, I decided to go with the thoughtless, but pithy, observation instead. ;)

    Where is that kids parents? If they are getting a piece of the action, can they be brought up on charges
