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

I´m sure that Mr. Chumley´s browser history is quite interesting.

How much for government computers?

I don´t want anyone installing any software on my computer. If I want something, I can do that.

Not a fan of porn, but this is unconstitutional.

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!

Just another new tax. For our own good, of course.

I don´t need the government to reject for me that which I can reject myself.

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)

I say that the South Carolina General Assembly has more important things to concern itself with. This is a big waste of time and taxpayers´ money.

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.

Once again, proving the adage that some in the Republican Party love to prove its the stupid party... jeez.

The Matter with Coal Country
National Review, by Kevin D. Williamson    Original Article

Harlan County, Ky., has a long history with two dirty business: coal and the Democratic party. As with much of Appalachia, Kentucky’s politics are more complicated than often is understood. There are many dividing lines in Kentucky, some of them familiar: Donald Trump won the state in the 2016 presidential election, but Hillary Rodham Clinton won the state’s two most populous and urban counties, which together account for about a quarter of the state’s population. But other political borders are more Appalachia-specific, and one of those is the distinction between areas where coal is mined and those where it isn’t.

“Progressive” is a funny word. It is what the self-consciously center-left element in American politics started calling itself after the word “liberal” was made into a term of abuse by the center-right element in American politics, which is made up mainly of liberals. Funny little eccentricities of the language: There are among our so-called liberal Democrats few surviving liberals and a rapidly declining number of democrats. And, thanks to the efforts of such excellent gentlemen as Jonah Goldberg and Glenn Beck in explaining the ugly history of American progressivism, “progressive” has become a term of abuse, too, especially on the

´This Is Your Brain on Drugs´ Guy
Supports Marijuana Legalization

In a recent Pew Research Center survey, Americans born between 1928 and 1945 (a.k.a. the Silent Generation) were the only age cohort in which a majority still supported marijuana prohibition. But the survey also found that support for legalization within this group has quadrupled since the late 1980s, meaning that millions of Silent Generation members have changed their minds about marijuana since then. One of them, it turns out, is John Roselius, the actor best known to Americans who came of age during the Reagan administration for his role in the iconic, moronic "This Is Your Brain on Drugs" ad.

LOS ANGELES - Hollywood star Mark Ruffalo accused US President Barack Obama of hypocrisy for allowing fracking and other fossil fuel extraction while presenting himself as a green president. The Oscar-nominated "Spotlight" and "Avengers" actor spoke out at a rally in Los Angeles protesting against man-made climate change and, in particular, the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline, the site of escalating protests in recent weeks. "President Obama, it is immoral for you to keep drilling in our state lands, in our federal lands, off our federal waters, while at the same time calling yourself a climate change leader," he said.

Arrest Numbers Reflect Growing
Pot Tolerance

FBI statistics released last week show that the number of marijuana arrests in the United States, after rising slightly in 2014, fell by 8 percent last year, reaching the lowest level in two decades. The total was nevertheless more than twice the number in 1991, before a nationwide cannabis crackdown that peaked in 2007. The number of marijuana arrests has fallen more or less steadily since then, reflecting a growing consensus that cannabis consumers should not be treated as criminals.

   

 



 
Build the wall
Washington Post, by Robert J. Samuelson    Original Article

Just because Donald Trump isn’t qualified to be president — and just because much of his agenda is hateful and undesirable — doesn’t mean that everything he says is automatically wrong. Some of his ideas deserve consideration and enactment. One of these is building a wall across our southern border with Mexico. It has been ridiculed as a monstrosity and a colossal waste of money. The theory of the wall is that it keeps out low-wage workers and, thereby, raises the wages of U.S. workers, including earlier Hispanic arrivals. They are most vulnerable to additional Hispanic workers, because their skills

Bill Clinton welled up as he praised his wife´s presidential campaign after casting his vote for Hillary. ´I never cast a vote I was prouder of,´ said the former president, an elector for New York, after casting his ballot in the Senate chambers of the Capitol in Albany, New York. Bill Clinton looked emotional as he described his wife´s long fought campaign for the presidency. ´You know, I watched her work for two years,´ he told reporters. ´I watched her battle through that bogus email deal. She fought through that. She fought through everything, and she prevailed against it all and then

Michelle Obama is tired of being labeled the “angry black woman.” The first lady told Oprah Winfrey that she was confused why the stereotype is so often attributed to her during one of her final interviews from the White House. (Snip) “We are so afraid of each other, you know?” she continued. “Color, wealth, these things that don’t matter still play too much of a role in how we see one another. And it’s sad, because the thing that least defines us as people is the color of our skin, the size of our bank account. None of that matters

While many of Hillary Clinton’s top advisers have focused their post-presidential election fury on blaming alleged Russian interference and FBI Director James Comey for Clinton’s loss, some in the so-called “Hillaryland” orbit are looking inward, including pointing fingers at Clinton’s most-trusted aide: Huma Abedin. “The real anger is toward Hillary’s inner circle,” a Clinton insider told Vanity Fair for a Wednesday feature on Abedin. “They reinforced all the bad habits.” One of the most important people in that “inner circle” was Abedin, 40, who has been by Clinton’s side since she was a White House intern during President Bill Clinton’s tenure.

Judith Herman, M.D. is a professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Nanette Gartrell, M.D., was once at Harvard Medical School, too, in an assistant professor of psychiatry role. Dee Mosbacher, M.D., Ph.D., on the other hand (read: coast), was an assistant clinical professor at the University of California San Francisco. What do they have in common? Well, these high-ranking professors in the psychiatric field have all banded together to write a letter to President Barack Obama about their concerns that President-elect Donald Trump might have a mental illness that should preclude him from the office.

WASHINGTON- With about one month to go before he leaves office, President Barack Obama gave some exit interview-type advice to his successor Donald Trump: Don´t rely too heavily on executive orders. In an interview with NPR´s Steve Inskeep on Thursday that aired in its entirety Monday on Morning Edition, Obama said it´s preferable to work with Congress. "Keep in mind, though, that my strong preference has always been to legislate when I can get legislation done," Obama said from the Cabinet Room in the White House. "In my first two years, I wasn´t relying on executive powers, because I had

The New York Times is calling for an end to the Electoral College. Americans would prefer by overwhelming majorities to elect a president using a popular vote system, the newspaper´s editorial board said in a piece published Monday. "They understand, on a gut level, the basic fairness of awarding the nation’s highest office on the same basis as every other elected office — to the person who gets the most votes," the editorial said. On Monday, President-elect Donald Trump sealed his presidential victory, even though his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, beat him by more than 2.8 million votes. "Yes, Mr.

President Obama has insinuated that Hillary Clinton lost the election because her team ignored rural America. In an hour-long exit interview with NPR, the president said that this year´s election proved that Democrats need to focus on hard-hit rural areas. This flawed strategy, he said, led some voters who backed him in both elections, to vote for Donald Trump - turning traditionally blue states, like Wisconsin and Michigan, red thanks to the overwhelming support of voters outside of the major cities. ´We know that there are a substantial number of voters out there who not only voted for me twice
