    Here they go again! Republican religious conservatives don't seem to understand the meaning of the word, "freedom". They say they want to keep government out of people's lives, but it's all a sham.

    WASHINGTON - Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.), one of the most religio-conservative politicians in Congress today, has introduced House Resolution (H.R.) 3726, which would amend several federal laws, including the Recordkeeping and Labeling Act (18 U.S.C. ยง2257). The move marks the Religious Right's most blatant attempt yet to destroy the adult video industry, this time by granting the Justice Department increased powers to target adult producers within a state, without having to wait for them to ship their product across state lines.

    H.R. 3726, which was first introduced on Monday, has been added as a rider to the Children's Safety Act of 2005, H.R. 3132, which was scheduled for a full Judiciary Committee hearing today. However, H.R. 3132 was apparently fast-tracked, since the bill, with CPPA 2005 added to it, was passed by the House today, and now goes to the Senate for consideration ... and likely passage.

    Ah but Bush "Wont Do Anything That Will Harm Our Economy".

    And the Porn industry is worth billions.


    Oh wait, I forgot: They'll all a bunch of fucking hypocrites!


    By "Wont Do Anything That Will Harm Our Economy", he actually meant "I wont try and save the planet by signing the Kyoto Protocol, because that's much less important than adult entertainment."

    :eyes:

    Ahh well, I'm in the UK anyway... :beer:

    The porn industry should just offer the GOP a direct percentage of gross sales. That would help change their minds.

    Too true, Speedo. It certainly helps the oil, automobile, and tobacco industries.

    but I just have to go on record as saying that this southern republican loves her porn!

    You are NOT a republican!!!!!!!!!! I am sending your name in to the central office for processing and hopefully, excommunication from the righteous membership of the one and true American Society for Superiority.

    For the porn industry (read Mafia, etc...) to have flourished this easily over the years, there has had to have been complicity from the monied Right Wing at the very least, just as there has been complicity with regard to drugs, booze and other opiates. Bread & Circuses, folks.....

    Well, they are by and large things that are Mafia controlled and therefore somewhat cleaner than government. At least the Mafia is direct- shit on us and we'll kill you. I can appreciate that. With government they smile in your face while they rob you blind, chicken shit assholes, one and all.

    And bullets are so cheap.

    So, guess who owns most of the cable and satellite porn channels available, along with the porn delivered to hotel rooms and delivery systems worldwide? AOL/Time Warner, Viacom and their ilk. It's a "dirty" little secret they really don't want anyone to know about. It accounts for hundreds of millions of dollars to their bottom line every year.

    Porn is one of the few profitable things on the internet. I thought we WANTED the economy to thrive? And what is with the American hang-up with sex anyway? Iit's just a FUCK.

    Mafia? I don't know about the entire industry, but I can tell you that in my years of experience with adult entertainment, I've never come across anyone associated with The Mafia.

    Well, that's because you don't work with shitbag back-room operations, thankfully. It still exists, probably less now than in years past because porn has got some acceptance- even their own awards program. Back in the day when Larry Flint was still around northern Kentucky, it was a different world. I mainly got long after the fact stories, but I saw a tiny bit of it (Mafia) before it fell into what it is now when the old timers died off.

    Pornographers are actually in a lot of ways more legit than the mainstream media these days. I remember a while back, a cyber-buddy of mine was protesting Harley Reagan. If you're not familiar with Harley, he also goes by "Swift Deer" and "Thunder Strikes". In an interview, he describes his puberty including plains images (vision quest, but traditionally it was four days and no "aligning" or whatever), "generic savage" materials (wrist-cutting; fine, but tell your elders it's down not across), and sexual instruction which really jumps the shark (e.g., being taught masturbation by older male relatives at 4, sexual instruction at 12). Anyway, Harley's notable for his sacred sex classes and alternately claiming to be Cherokee and Mayan. Anyway, the porn distributors we emailed rather quickly dumped the tapes, but HBO has yet to so much as issue a retraction for their Real Sex episode.

    I like how Harley claims a Navajo taught him to shapeshift. That would make him a yei nadlooshi. (They're bad.) Harley also talks about stuff even mainstream Americans should realize is fake, such as Mormon exorcisms. Not to mention his racist militia connections.

    This is another toilet paper bill.

    If this schmoe thinks he's going to save the world by stopping porn hes more of an idiot than he appears to be.

    California would Fold. Trickling down, would be the movie industry and everything connected to it.

    Porn isn't for "Sick Minded Individuals".
    Its for people that DONT want to run out and have sex with a ton of people, and WANT stimulation right in the comfort of their own homes.

    Its what keeps rape counts DOWN by providing a release of sexual tensions, and STD's at Bay.

    When will these idiots wake up.... :spank:

    Its truly sad what this country has become.
