  1. Nearly half of the members of the U.S. Senate are urging Attorney General Eric Holder to step up federal prosecutions of adult pornography.

    In a letter sent to Holder earlier this week, 42 senators encouraged Holder instruct prosecutors and FBI agents to counter what the lawmakers called "the growing scourge of obscenity in America." Anti-pornography activists have noted with alarm that, under President Barack Obama, the Justice Department has not filed a single new obscenity case anywhere in the country

    "We write to urge the Department of Justice vigorously to enforce federal obscenity laws against major commercial distributors of hardcore adult pornography," the senators wrote. "We believe it is imperative that the Department, with cooperation by the FBI, investigate and prosecute all major producers and distributors of adult obscenity. We need your leadership."

    Revolution, war, earthquakes, tsunami, more revolution, more war, superbugs, radiation, food riots, etc... but we have to spend some time on porn!
  3. Hello


    I agree..... total waste of time/money when everything else is put into perspective.
  4. Pornography is the real cancer that is destroying the world and some world leaders say terrorism is the cancer.

    Terrorists kill instantly/immediately whereas pornography kills people everyday for 10 years and more and ultimately people die.

    Were you able to get your PC cleaned up, or did you have to replace it?
  6. Isn't that a good thing. I'm guessing there are more serious crimes to prosecute.
  7. Hello


  8. Conflict of interest: They would need to investigate and prosecute government workers.
  9. So the GOP, who has done nothing about creating new jobs, now focuses on shutting down on of the USA's biggest exports...
  10. Unbridled capitalism doesn't work.

    Neither does unbridled Government.

    How about a balance for a change?

    Government needs business, and business needs government so that businesses don't destroy the fabric of the middle class.
