I don't understand why anyone would want to combat porn. Yes, some people are addicted to sex and porn, but let their loved ones try to help them rather than the government. I see the porn addiction issue something for society to handle and for communities to come to together over. If the government gets involved, it would be like the issue would lose its communal feeling and its being handled by a small group of people who - to me - seem distant from mainstream society.

And that goes for alcohol abuse and other addictions. I don't know, I just don't like the government getting involved in social issues because I think it would work better among support groups and such. Legislation seems to take the power of the people out of their hands.

Gosh, I hope I made sense.

Anyway, just my thoughts.

That's another thing, too. Santorum wants the government to get involved. Again. So do conservatives like government interference or don't they? They need to start making up their minds, 'cause I'm really confused.

Apparently a while back we got notice at our store that there was a lady in a nearby town who was calling around to every one of our bookstore chains in the area complaining about the adult magazines we carry, because her husband is a porn addict and she feels that all the stores are just enabling his behavior by keeping the porn magazines out there. She says that we're breaking laws by putting that stuff out (if we were, we'd probably have been shut down, duh), and she's threatened legal action and that sort of thing. If any of us answer the phone and she's on the line, we're to not answer any of her questions and simply hand her over to our manager to deal with .

I don't know how they handle it at any of the other stores in our chain, but the adult magazines at our store are all in one little section on a top shelf. Most are covered completely in plastic, many have a black bar thing on the plastic covering all the parts that one would cover. And when our staff puts them away we always try and keep them as hidden away from the general public as possible, so that people who come in with their kids don't have the children stumbling across it or people who may not care for such things don't have to see it. We do everything in our power to keep that section as discreet as possible. The porn addiction is her and her husband's problem to deal with, not anyone else's. I just work there, I'm not trying to turn our customers into filth mongers.

I'm not saying everyone should be forced to deal with an individual's problems. I just feel the government should not get involved because it would as if the power is out of the people's hands and into those who are only concerned about being reelected so they would have a job.

Oh, I agree and understand what you meant. I was just ranting about my own situation in relation to that a bit, sorry . Not targeted at you or anyone else in particular.

It's about time someone is going after smut. It's degrading to women, and encourages kids to grow up to become out of control sexfiends. We need to protect society from this stuff!

One of my friends from high school is an obsessive Paul supporter. And on Facebook, he sent me this-



He also wants to add Obama's face in that mash-up. Sweet delusions...

Obama is more of 'the establishment' than they are, actually.

Obama is establishment(which is the opposite of what the right is saying), but what are your arguments that he is moreso than Romney or Newt?

Can you reword that? I'm not sure what you're saying.

How is Obama "more of the establishment" than Romney or Gingrich?

They're all establishment.

Well yes, not 'more of' but a very fitting example.
