She can't. The SCOTUS has already dealt with this.

But yeah, she's showing off her fascist/authoritarian side.

Good. I hope people will take notice.

She clearly doesn't know much about how the First Amendment works in this area.

Obscenity can be banned (whatever that is), but indecent speech and media cannot. Practically all porn falls into the latter category.

She's ignoring several decades of case law on this topic.

Typical.

Sadly, your comment applies to much more than "religious people".

We have lots of people on the opposite end of the spectrum who want to tell us how to live our lives. Idiots who want to outlaw toys with food, for example.

There are at least as many on the liberal end of the scale who like to tell us what to do.

She ignores many things and forgets that others will call her out on them, even her fellow GOPers. I cannot tell if she is just scatter-brained or she has no brains at all, I find it amazing that she holds a powerful office in our government are the people of her state really that dumb or is she the best they have to offer?

We do NOT need morality laws. We need ethics! Problems solved. We'll never have high ethics amongst humans, because it's easier to go to church and point fingers at those who don't live the way X or Y deems everyone else should live.

That is the problem with the Bachmanns. And over my dead body will they force me into the Christian taliban.

The porn business sector in the US is huge estimated on the low end to be 4 billion, on the high end 14 billion. Talk about putting people out of work.

I understand "conservatives" preoccuption with sex. By discussing it, it gives them a thrill. And from what I see, a lot of them are getting it on the side.
