"The Senate passed a resolution Thursday night that calls on the newspaper Village Voice “to act as a responsible global citizen” by taking down its “adult entertainment” section of its classified advertising website.
Lawmakers said that website, Backpage.com, ends up promoting child sex trafficking in the United States."

does this strike you as strange, as in W.T.H.

Senate wants to go easy on this. Too many teachers read the village voice for just this reason. And they're union members which means votes for democrats.

I'm lost here. What does this really mean?

Well. The Obama administration wants to confiscate guns from law abiding gun owners but the Senate respectfully asks the village voice to stop their adult entertainment section which facilitates child porn.

The liberals are desperate to take total control of the internet. There is too much content that (this section was deleted by the Internet Responsible Supervision Act) and then they'll be happy.

Well I'm glad they did. I got no use for porn and I think that porn sites should be restricted to a secluded part of the internet that requires a special access code. I can't tell you how many times my 9 year old son has come across porn in his google searches for school and the filters don't seem to work all that well. Why should smut being floating out there with everything else? I'm not suggesting censorship, but I think that all smut should be quarantined so that kids can't get access to it. At least the Senate is doing what I want it to do, standing up for decency and attempting to put an end to the child sex slave trade that's taking the porn industry by storm.

Here's a thought - why not nab and prosecute those engaging in illegal sex trafficing?

Naw, that's not progressive enough. Just punish the rest of the law abiding citizens.

How are law abiding citizens being punished? Nobody is having their access to porn restricted. Who's being punished?

Yes I did, which gives rise to my question.

BTW, did YOU read the clip?

So they're asking to take down a site that is frequented by illegal sex trading - but is also used by (and designed for) law abiding citizens.

Those dots didn't need connected if you read the clip.

Sorry, but this isn't a matter of opinion. The rights of law abiding citizens aren't being violated by the Senate asking a porn site to be taken down. There are 42,337 other sites to choose from. Unfortunately we have to deal with the fact that the explosion of internet porn has created a huge market for the exploitation of underage children. So we can't start the conversation with any restriction on porn being characterized as "punishing law abiding citizens". That's just absurd. Adults will be able to view adult pornography with no restrictions no matter what changes are made, but we need a multi national effort to stop the child sex slave trade and the sex slave trade in general which the porn industry makes very profitable.

Hence my point.

Punish law abiding citizens in place of prosecuting lawbreakers.

You have been useful, to a degree.

You have yet to demonstrate that law abiding citizens are being punished or that their unfettered access to porn is somehow being restricted.
