    Uh, the "save the children" chestnut has run out of gas on obscenity, eco. MANY years ago.

    Hello? The airwaves. Like streets. We only have so many and people gotta vote on what can and cannot be on them. Do whatever you want with cable, net, etc. That's your business. But not in the streets. Drive your super monster truck on your property and places permitted, but not I-95. Party all you want, but not in public parks. Be vulgar all you want, but not on public airwaves.

    In other words the answer is...this law is just a tool for democrats to use against republicans. It is a goofy law. Everyone knows we have no King but Caesar.

    What I would allow my children to watch has really nothing to do with if it should be restricted it or not. I will say however that there is no chance it could hurt a child. No matter what people think of porn it is nothing more than human interaction.

    It cannot be too far back. Good luck with your hunt. I am sure you are eager to see it.

    YOU are a prude? Holy cow, I cannot believe I am reading this. You are the foulest-spoken person on DP, IMO.

    Am I being punked?

    Streets are not "airwaves".

    Airwaves- The medium used for the transmission of radio and television signals.

    Public airwaves are like public streets and not only adults are subject to them.

    It's a limited, common, public resource. Regulation by vote is fair. Just like for streets and water.
