    Give me a ****ing break. Michelle Obama eating a cheeseburger at a Super Bowl party does not mean she cannot promote healthier eating and exercise habits for children. Her message is not that you cannot eat a cheeseburger or hot dog, ever. It's about controlling your portions, eating other healthier things more often, eating less healthy things in moderation, exercising, etc.

    That is another topic for another thread if you'd like to make it. But to compare the two is pretty laughable.

    Re: Bachmann pledges to ban pornography

    Bachmann is doing what every politician does during election season --- pandering to specific voter blocks. Obama did it, GW Bush did it, and probably every Presidential hopeful has done it for a very long time. This is "business as usual", though I see why my Progressive buddies want to have a mouth foaming moment to make a splash.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    "support human protection of women and the innocent fruit of conjugal intimacy” and protect them from “seduction into promiscuity and all forms of pornography…and other types of coercion or stolen innocence"

    ....somehow equates banning Pornography.....according to the "Jounalists" over at Think Democrat.

    Suggesting better eating habits is a far cry from "dictating" what you can eat. Get real dude.

    And as we have seen this pledge doesn't call for banning porn. I don't wish to make this about those who wish to control our lives in areas other than porn but much of that seems to be supported by those who would have a tizzy here.

    It wasn't long ago that it was the left claiming that porn was bad for women.

    I'm not claiming that the pledge DOES say that. Refer to my earlier post:

But it does at the very least call for more "protection" from it or controls on it (and again, that's just at a minimum)...which, as I said in my previous post, is more government intervention from a candidate built on the idea that government intervention is inherently bad.

    Look, it's an interesting topic I suppose and I don't want to take it way off topic but there are many, many, many topics that I could note that would be similiar. Such as the billions we have gave to Wall Street the last two and a half years.

    You can smuggle porn over the border for a tidy profit.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are

    And all the little pigs have God
