I honestly don't care if you want to watch it or view it. I don't like it being so readily available to minors, though. I don't think it's unreasonable to expect to be able to drive down the street without seeing advertisements for it, or to be able to turn on my tv without stumbling across some pretty nasty stuff while watching tv with my family.

There are ways for you to keep those materials from your children. Filters of all sorts for tv, internet, etc. that work well unless your good little child is actively trying to circumvent same. At that point, it's a family issue, not an America issue and responsibility.

She had a chance to stand for the First Amendment and, y'know, small government. She blew it.

Well, Bachmann's candidacy was fun while it lasted. Who's next?

BREAKING: Bachmann pledges to ban pornography | ThinkProgress
An extreme leftist source trying to put a negative spin on a candidate actually taking a stand against immorality. Sad that such a ridiculous spin could gain traction even with the extreme leftists who have no moral values in the first place. I see the character assassination of Bachman has begun. I guess the Dems fear her so they are going to try to "Palin" her.

"Real" politicians look for populism. They say what the audience wants to hear. And so is expected of Bachmann. It speaks more about the supporters than of her.

Default jobs or pornography, your choice

What's worse, banning pornography by MB or banning all jobs by BO?
