Mitt Romney vows to ban pornography by installing a filter on every U.S. PC

Did you know Mitt Romney has vowed to install pornography filters on all new U.S. computers?

That's going to do really well with the blue collar white male demo.

Hey all you Libertarians. How do you like this?

Or does all that talk about Government overreach only count when there's a Democrat doing it? I got a feeling this will hit most of you where you live. Just be aware. For all of his Father Knows Best appeal, Mitt is a religious zealot crossed with an Amway salesman.

Well shit! He just lost my vote.

I'll give you my porn when you take it from my cold, dead sticky hands!

Wouldn't this be unconstitutional? They tried that in the Telecomm act of 1996, and the Supreme Court said it was unconstitutional.

That won't stop them R3. In the 1980's a Mormon U.S. attorney in Utah drove all the porn palaces out of business by harrassment, knowing it was illegal but that the legal fees and business interruption would make it impossible for adult businesses to continue.

Wonder if Romney knows every US PC is made in China.

by Anonymousreply 507/22/2012

Knows, he helped send the jobs over there.

by Anonymousreply 607/22/2012

"on every PC"? As is, software? Does he know how computers work?

It seems you'd have to implement such a ban at the ISP level.

In the video clip, he said that it would be a filter that parents could turn on, not a filter that would automatically be on for everyone. That could be achieved just by requiring a pre-load of one of the internet nanny programs for parents to use. You had me worried with that headline.

Utah has the highest purchase of internet porn on the country...

Spread this headline across Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, etc. and Romney will only get the One Million Mom vote.

Yet another "big government" promise that panders to the social conservatives.

Do you really want a man this craven to be President?

We need to ensure this message gets out to the red states somehow...

I have read that porn out sells mainstream movies in hotel movie purchases- but a large margin.

Maybe then gay bars and back rooms will come back! Many gay Internet hookup sites are basically porn, right?

Romney is ridiculous.

by Anonymousreply 1309/07/2012

Well, there go those Republican Perverts again. They want a small Government but can't stay out of people's bedrooms..

Remember everyone, it's the liberals that want to create a nanny-state.

Hey come on now! Think of how many fourteen year old geeks will get rich DISABLING the Mittens Filter for new computer buyers! That truly IS "job creation!"

One of my very first acts will be to prohibit the touching of one's Latter Day Taints.

I think Romney is saying he wants parents to be able to block pornography from their children's computers...which, correct me if I'm wrong, is already available to parents, am I right?

by Anonymousreply 1909/07/2012

What does being Libertarian have to do with this?

by Anonymousreply 2009/07/2012

Ummm...can't parents do that already????

Another BRILLIANT idea, Mittens.

This is what's on the minds of Americans at a time of economic turmoil....PORN FILTERS. Because THAT will help our country most right now!

You'll be a President for the ages!

Just a big give away to all the major donors who are heavily invested in profitable streaming porn to their hotel rooms: the Pritzkers, the Marriotts and that nasty fuck rat bastard Sheldon Adelson.

The COLDS also recently 'modified' its revelation on caffeine. See what letting in Coloreds does to COLDS dogma!

by Anonymousreply 2209/07/2012

And who is going to pay for all these filters?

by Anonymousreply 2309/07/2012

R23, You mean who is going to pay for the cost of altering new computers, and inspecting that it's successfully done, when watchful parents can already restrict viewing habits, or with present technology on old computers? MR obviously doesn't know anything about computers.

by Anonymousreply 2409/07/2012

R22, Of course porn would no longer be allowed in hotel rooms either. What is COLDS? Tried googling it and only got the illness version.

by Anonymousreply 2509/07/2012

COLDS; a more fitting acronym to the Church Of Latter Day Saints.

They are an icy bunch.

To be fair, that's also how Mayor Daley (the elder) drove adult bookstores, massage parlors, and the like out of Chicago in the 60's and 70's.

Constant harassment by the building inspectors, the fire marshal, and a traffic cop out front ticketing all the customers was standard operating procedure.

And yet the Bijou survived it all R27.

[quote]And yet the Bijou survived it all [R27].

Yup, and the Cinestage (fond memories!) was right there in the Loop, a stone's throw from City Hall, showing XXX 24/7. There was also a couple of adult bookstores Near North that seemed to operate openly.

In the early 80's there was rather elaborate brothel that specialized in S&M with dungeons and the works that was owned and operated by one of the very top officers in the police force, so maybe it would be more accurate to say Daley used those tactics against the ones who didn't pay off or weren't owned by friends of the mayor?

Porn always comes out on top!

by Anonymousreply 3009/08/2012

Then they better include FOX because you just know the old fucks watching are getting off on the hot chicks made up like whores and shooting their mouths off about minorities.
