Virginia Bob Marshall’s Progressive
War on Porn

Reason, by A. Barton Hinkle

Del. Robert Marshall and his liberal critics might be appalled by the suggestion that they share anything in common. Marshall ferociously opposes abortion, he co-sponsored Virginia´s constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, and he once even tried to prohibit single women from getting pregnant through artificial insemination. But while he and those on the left differ on policy specifics, they share a core assumption. This year the Prince William delegate wants the General Assembly to take a stand against porn. He has drafted a resolution declaring pornography a public health hazard and advocating a "policy change . . . to address

I would LOVE to see his browser history. It would be quite informative, I think.

Ok, but I just wish we could get somebody that had some passion about balancing budgets and reducing my taxes. Maybe somehow get that on the priority list.

If we buy into the public health argument, then we must also buy into the public health argument against guns. Public health involves diseases and poisons, not girlie pictures.

As soon as you start infringing on my freedoms to satisfy your own morality you become my enemy and will be treated as such.

Best line in the article: "Why is this the government´s business?"

Clearly, we need a war on impure thoughts.

....and they will need tons of ammunition.

Leftists have known what others are thinking since Nixon was President.

Unlike Obama, Nixon became the Devil because the MSM knew what he "Wanted to Do".

Federal Appeals Court Nixes Blanket Drug
Screening of State College Students

Last week a federal appeals court ruled that requiring incoming students at a state college to surrender their urine for drug testing violates the Fourth Amendment´s ban on unreasonable searches. The decision is a welcome departure from a body of case law that usually defers to the government´s perception of "special needs" that supposedly justify analyzing people´s bodily fluids without a warrant or any evidence that they pose a threat to public safety. Linn State Technical College, now known as the State Technical College of Missouri, started demanding incoming students´ urine in 2011 because members of its advisory council

On Oil, No Backsies!
National Review, by Kevin D. Williamson    Original Article
Posted By: zoidberg- 12/22/2016 5:51:09 AM     Post Reply
Barack Obama, utilizing the hitherto unknown "No-Backsies!" provision of Article II, has unilaterally declared an "indefinite" ban on oil exploration in certain parts of the Atlantic and Arctic. The president is relying on a novel - and imaginary, and dishonest - interpretation of the 1953 Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act, which he says empowers him to make, by unilateral executive fiat, new drilling rules that cannot be undone by any successor president. Legally speaking this is, as Professor Patrick Parenteau of Vermont Law School wryly put it, "uncharted waters."

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

The Matter with Coal Country

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.

A group of more than 1,100 law school professors from across the country is sending a letter to Congress on Tuesday urging the Senate to reject the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) for attorney general. The letter, signed by professors from 170 law schools in 48 states, is also scheduled to run as a full-page newspaper ad aimed at members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will be holding confirmation hearings for Sessions on Jan. 10-11. “We are convinced that Jeff Sessions will not fairly enforce our nation’s laws and promote justice and equality in the United States,” states the letter,

Megyn Kelly is leaving Fox News. The popular host of The Kelly File, who many saw as the future of the network, has taken a job with NBC. In a statement released on Tuesday, NBC revealed that Kelly, 46, will anchor a one hour daytime program running Monday through Friday on the network, along with a Sunday evening news magazine show. She will also be involved in the network´s political and breaking news coverage. ´Megyn is an exceptional journalist and news anchor, who has had an extraordinary career,´ NBC Chairman Andrew Lack said of his high-profile hire. ´She’s demonstrated tremendous skill

NBCUniversal will spend millions of dollars each year for the next few in the hopes that Megyn Kelly can succeed in areas in which she’s never been tested: daytime talk and Sunday newsmagazines. (Snip)And yet, Kelly’s current halo does not necessarily mean she can also triumph over splintered broadcast-TV audiences and tired formats. Those are hurdles she and NBC will have to leap over in the months to come. NBC said it intends to place Kelly in a new Monday-through-Friday daytime hour set to launch sometime over the coming year. To accomplish that feat, NBC would have to either take time from

Megyn Kelly is leaving Fox News after 12 years to take a multifaceted role at NBC News. Just minutes after she made the announcement Tuesday, speculation began over who would take her 9 p.m. slot on the network. (Photo) According to what insiders at Fox News told Gabriel Sherman at New York Magazine, “the consensus seems to be that the Murdochs will choose a woman” to replace Kelly. “The leading internal contenders include Trish Regan, Shannon Bream, Sandra Smith, and Martha MacCallum. Two sources said Kimberly Guilfoyle is lobbying for the job,” Sherman said the insiders told him. Trish Regan

Megyn Kelly’s decision to jump from Fox News to NBC resolves one of the last unanswered questions of the Roger Ailes scandal: Would she stay or would she go when her contract ended? With her last show set to air on Friday, Kelly’s departure raises a new series of questions about how transferrable her talents are and where Fox News is headed now that the network has lost its biggest star and one of its few hosts with serious mainstream credibility. For Kelly, the jump from a primetime perch at Fox to a multifaceted role at NBC carries a high degree

Bracing for an adversarial relationship with President-elect Donald Trump, the California Legislature has selected former U.S. Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. to serve as outside counsel to advise the state’s legal strategy against the incoming administration. The unusual arrangement will give Holder, leading a team of attorneys from the firm Covington & Burling, a broad portfolio covering potential conflicts between California and the federal government. “He will be our lead litigator, and he will have a legal team of expert lawyers on the issues of climate change, women and civil rights, the environment, immigration, voting rights — to name just

Megyn Kelly, who arrived at Fox News 12 years ago as a television news neophyte but rose to become one of its two biggest stars, has decided to leave the network to take on a broad new role at NBC News for an undisclosed amount, people briefed on the negotiations said on Tuesday. The NBC News chairman, Andrew Lack, wooed Ms. Kelly away from Fox News by offering her a triple role in which she will host her own daytime news and discussion program, anchor an in-depth Sunday night news show and take regular part in the network’s special political programming
