pornography block on new computers

Reuters, by Brendan O´Brien

Original Article

Posted By:zoidberg, 12/20/2016 4:35:03 PM

Computers and devices sold in South Carolina that can access the internet would be required to have filters installed to prevent people from viewing pornography, although buyers could pay a $20 fee to remove the blocking software under a proposal before the legislature.The amendment would require manufacturers or sellers of computers and internet-accessible devices to install software that blocks pornography, according to a draft of the amendment filed with the South Carolina General Assembly on Dec. 15. One of its sponsors said on Tuesday the amendment would help raise money for the state´s task force to combat human trafficking

Obviously this will require a new state Department of Pornography... after all, somebody will have to review all alleged pornography and make a determination. It should probably be that guy who said, "I know pornography when I see it."

Some people consider the Victoria Secret website to be pornography. And maybe they´re right.

This lawmaker Bill Chumley annoys the heck out of me. The left-wing has shown themselves to be wackos. And just when that is happening, we have to get a conservative Republican acting just as ridiculous to bring ridicule back on the GOP.

This is big brother, big government junk...THIS IS NOT WHAT WE STAND FOR!!!

Thanks for nothing Chumley, except making us look stupid!

FTA: "..buyers could pay a $20 fee to remove the blocking software"

So who would collect the fee, who would receive the fee, who would keep the records of who had paid the fee, who would have access to those records, and who would one complain to if they had paid the fee and still couldn´t get porn? Yes, this sounds like a wonderful idea. (s/o)

This is impossible. Photos are not stored with a flag that says ´this is porno´. There are millions of unique pornographic pictures available from hundreds of thousands of sites on the web. Even if you could have human viewers generate a cryptographic hash of each one to put in an online database, you would never keep up with the new pictures and movies. Plus the hundreds of millions of men who would volunteer to help with the reviewing process are going to get sore eyes and miss a lot of work. The medical bills for carpal tunnel alone would probably be in the billions. This is a DUMB IDEA.

Forget Reagan: Trump’s Tax Plan

Posted By: zoidberg- 4/27/2017 9:37:04     Post Reply
In the run-up to today´s big White House tax-reform announcement, the question among many analysts was: Would President Donald Trump´s ideas look more like Ronald Reagan in 1981 (when he and a bipartisan congressional majority cut rates) or 1986, when they simplified the code? While Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, flanked by National Economic Director Gary Cohn, bragged that the administration´s plan was both "the biggest tax cut" and the "largest tax reform" in U.S. History (Snip) the more apt and less comforting historical precedent might be the guy who Trump never tires of bashing: George W.

Canada is poised to approve a law
legalizing marijuana nationwide
Washington Post, by Christopher Ingraham    Original Article
Posted By: zoidberg- 4/13/2017 6:22:57     Post Reply
The government of Canada on Thursday released a plan to legalize recreational marijuana use across the country by July 2018. With a solid Liberal majority in government, the plan is widely expected to become law, but it would leave the details of implementation, including commercial regulations, to individual provinces. The bill’s backers framed it as an effort to reduce adolescent drug use and take profits out of the black market. “Criminal prohibition has failed to protect our kids and our communities,” Bill Blair, parliamentary secretary to the Justice Minister and one of the architects of the legislation, said at a news

The Other Side of Legalized Theft

During a meeting with county sheriffs in February, Donald Trump was puzzled by criticism of civil asset forfeiture, which all the cops in the room viewed as an indispensable and unobjectionable law enforcement tool. "Do you even understand the other side of it?" the president asked. "No," one sheriff said, and that was that. Trump might get a more helpful answer if he asked Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.), who last week reintroduced a bill aimed at curtailing civil forfeiture abuses. As Sensenbrenner observed, "These abuses threaten citizens´ Constitutional rights, put unnecessary burdens on innocent Americans, and weaken our faith in

The conservative commentariat is full of suggestions these days for how Donald Trump can salvage his first 100 days. F. H. Buckley, the organizer of “Scholars and Writers for Trump,” writes in the New York Post that the president should “split” the GOP, align himself with Democrats, and embrace Canadian-style single-payer health care. Ross Douthat of the New York Times says Trump should get a brain trust that can guide him on the right policies, since he seems not to have many of his own. Similarly, my National Review colleague (well, boss) Rich Lowry penned a widely discussed piece for

DEA Seized $4 Billion From People
Since 2007. Most Were Never Charged with a Crime

The Drug Enforcement Administration seized more than $4 billion in cash from people suspected of drug activity over the last decade, but $3.2 billion of those seizures were never connected to any criminal charges. A report by the Justice Department Inspector General released Wednesday found that the DEA´s gargantuan amount of cash seizures often didn´t relate to any ongoing criminal investigations, and 82 percent of seizures it reviewed ended up being settled administratively—that is, without any judicial review—raising civil liberties concerns. In total, the Inspector General reports the DEA seized $4.15 billion in cash since 2007, accounting for 80 percent

Massachusetts Prepares to Vacate
Nearly 24,000 Tainted Drug Convictions

Massachusetts prosecutors will move in mid-April to vacate nearly all of the roughly 24,000 drug convictions tainted by a single corrupt forensic lab chemist, The Boston Globe reported Saturday, marking the denouement of one of the largest drug lab scandals in U.S. History. A Massachusetts prosecutor told the state´s Supreme Judicial Court last week that D.A.´s would seek to keep fewer than 1,000 of the 24,000 convictions tainted by drug lab chemist Annie Dookahn, who pled guilty in 2012 to falsifying test results in favor of law enforcement and tampering with evidence over a nine-year period starting in 2003.

Alex Jones, the conspiracy-loving media personality, apologized Friday for his role in promoting “Pizzagate,” the baseless viral story that a Washington pizza restaurant was the locale of a child sex-abuse ring run by Hillary Clinton and her campaign chairman, John Podesta. In a surprising and rare bit of backtracking, Jones posted a six-minute video on his website, “InfoWars,” in which he read a prepared statement formally distancing himself and his site from what became a textbook story of fake news run amok. He addressed his apology to James Alefantis, the owner of Comet Ping Pong, the restaurant that was the

"Our nation needs to say clearly once again that using drugs will destroy your life," Attorney General Jeff Sessions declared last week. The main problem with that message: It isn´t true. Yes, using drugs, both legal and illegal ones, can destroy your life, but typically it doesn´t. By arguing that drug education should proceed from a false premise, Sessions reminds us what was wrong with the Just Say No propaganda he would like to revive. Sessions, a former senator who was the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Alabama in the 1980s, looks back proudly at his efforts, alongside

When early drafts of the Trump budget started to circulate after the inauguration, the Export-Import Bank—one of Washington´s most notorious corporate-welfare programs—was among the agencies destined for the chopping block. Now the actual budget is out, and the bank has been spared the ax. The Washington Examiner´s Tim Carney reports that this "follows many reports from congressional fans of Ex-Im that Trump had been persuaded to love the agency, which primarily subsidizes Boeing sales." (Barack Obama underwent a similar transformation, denouncing the bank as "little more than a fund for corporate welfare" while he was running for president

DAHLONEGA, Ga. — The mayor was still home when his phone started ringing. The reverend was still down with the flu when he began getting one message after another. Valerie Fambrough had just dropped off her daughters at day care when she heard. “Have you seen the sign in the square?” a parent asked her on a cold morning three weeks ago. “There’s a Ku Klux Klan sign in the town square.” And, in fact, there was.

Every few years, a word or bit of terminology comes along and captures the political imagination. During the George W. Bush years, the magic word was “neocon.” For years, it was used as a term of abuse by the Left; later, it was adopted as a term of abuse by some elements of the Right. What they had in common is that neither camp had the faintest idea of what the word meant. “Neoconservative” was first brought to popular usage in the American context by left-wing intellectuals (the socialist Michael Harrington most prominent among them) to describe the thinking of

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., argued Thursday that President Trump and Republicans in Congress will have "doo-doo stuck to their shoe for a long time" if they pass the revised American Health Care Act (AHCA).

"I think President Trump is really making fools of the members of Congress, of his own party," she said in her weekly press conference.

Although President Donald J.

That´s about 877 abortions per day, 36 per hour, or 1 every two minutes.

The United Nations warned the Trump administration earlier this year that repealing ObamaCare without providing an adequate replacement would be a violation of multiple international laws, according to a new report. Though the Trump administration is likely to ignore the U.N. warning, The Washington Post reported the Office of the U.N. High Commission on Human Rights in Geneva sent an "urgent appeal" on Feb 2. The Post reported that the confidential, five-page memo cautioned that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act would put the U.S. “at odds with its international obligations.” The warning was sent to the State Department and reportedly said
