But back but so feminists have discovered that Rick Santorum.
Things pornography is bad yet he said so on its web site.
Wow what a surprise a religious conservative -- -- in other news kittens are adorable.
But Santorum says we suffer from a pandemic a porn and -- president he would strongly enforce federal obscenity laws.
I'm not sure that means -- that will make porn go away look at prohibition or the drug war but the left can -- Santorum all they want.
If you can't see the truth -- santorum's claimed that pornography harms families that your deal.
Sure things were different back when porn -- sneaking a look at a barbershop Playboy.
But today the engine -- delivery -- change the Internet now pipes porn freely into your home the crud makes Playboy look like highlights so what.
What's his -- your brain with a more you dig into artificial novelty the last passion you have for real actual people.
Not surprisingly churches are at the forefront of this battle not because they're up tight -- but because they see the damage up close.
Through withering marriages and distraught families.
Can you blame Santorum for caring and it's something feminists should applaud.
Porn is about as empowering to women as cats art -- mice.
If you don't believe me Google dead porn stars and see for yourself.
In that line of work forty is the new dead.
I -- I was an uplifting now what would ask you because I -- -- adults can make their own decisions.
And you I don't think you can you -- you can control -- activity but because this.
The win the world has changed in this stuff now comes to you how can't Santorum legislate -- how can he make this how can be changed its is that possible well look.
A laws are -- on that books are quite expensive at in the -- in terms of federal laws prohibiting.
And pornographic material.
But it's up to someone to file a complaint to say this is what's going on and they have to investigate it and then -- -- where you gonna happen issue is that some loophole for all of you.
Out there who want -- now.
And -- distribution.
That's the difficulty and I can have jurisdiction over so what would happen is if there -- to be cracked down here that little people sending in yeah.
That is the problem the problem pornography is the Internet about 9% of its revenue comes from pornography.
And it has -- from the beginning there's so much money involved in this stuff.
That is highly unlikely that you -- going to be able.
To do anything about it it's on the books yeah but -- go to any hotel in America with the exception -- us.
There it they have porn sites on kids the danger here is that children can get on the Internet and find anything they want yeah and it does it.
It is gonna have a corrosive impact on people and.
I -- sitting even Bob kits don't get it wet ground but I -- as if there's a bit.
-- it gets it nobody but nobody enforced it.
To say that it on the books with a -- on the books.
Well it's been on the books -- -- -- and it's also settled case lie and then you also have state laws prohibiting distribution.
Pornographic material and then you get into definitions of what constitutes.
Pornographic material -- Amber's got some healing is repairing our vendors have won the strictest rooms and.
In the -- yet you go to Alabama and they still victory of movies movie theaters yet but.
And they get on the Internet but I mean X rated movie theaters alike that's of the from the seventies right now we're talking about a different kind of vehicle -- -- you've got kids and you -- Have to go out and buy this stuff it's makes a scary scary concept how.
Available it is eminently literally you say 90% of -- you -- -- 90% of the sites are also porn related -- or lead to a point site.
You really have to be as -- yet to be so carefully at the meeting and yet to get the password -- to know what -- what what your kids are watching.
Also the grip first you do that no idea I -- -- that you you tight -- that that that monologue.
It didn't take its side on that either way I was very then I thought I.
Don't think I don't know how you can you can enforce these rules but I do realize -- destructive impact it's like a drug here's how you start taxing.
Yes certain risky start going and giving thanks for your shut down unless unless you pay -- -- that's for let's.
I've talked to our residents for a while when I actually -- I -- they don't wanna talk to end the wanna talk to Dana about.
Put the Puerto Rican.
Like I'm at one point Imus I was at Xavier I can't take it back I have a political announces went on -- bridges.
Rick santorum's position is not that I -- I said from apart from.
Yeah but for religious conservatives in fact if US President Obama about this.
He might say the same thing anchoring the problem for have Rick Santorum with the media is that people are looking.
For these types of things -- would get headlines while he might be trying to talk about his jobs program and the economy.
This is kind of thing that he has a policy positions but on -- website and then they come through and they find that and then it becomes a story that we talk about yeah.
-- is exactly right there's not a politician to get ready for presently for anything out that would not be in the same position as just talk.
And in particular on human trafficking I think they should make -- on a foreign issue and especially when it comes to children are out things you can and -- -- I direct it's a direct line that is the child abuse of directors I want to talk about santorum's comments are speaking English in Puerto Rico I don't wanna run the stock -- -- -- -- time.
But he says you know as a requirement for US territory to become a state.
Speak English and he said this in Puerto Rico to Puerto Rican people -- Paper.
Eric does he have guts for say or what honestly -- I don't he's -- he's trying to appeal to his his audience his audiences is very conservative -- who think.
English should be spoken the first and foremost in any state the problem is he went to Puerto Rico with twenty delegates he wants twenty delegates honestly Rick.
You could've done it after it is the primary because you're gonna end it would no doubt I had not -- and it.
That both -- most of stated people who also where Anderson are Republicans always all right but if that's -- -- of the supply of Puerto -- what about New Jersey.
Well with minor markets.
President until I -- I think yeah my place yes please as in this -- -- -- appointed yes Adam.
Where Rico act -- it very much in favor of that Mitt Romney -- the governor who Lisa factoring -- very popular amazing guy.
He's supporting governor Romney governor Romney has come out as a very strong advocate -- supportive statement.
For Puerto -- so this didn't -- Rick Santorum yes -- ill advised.
I have I theory that no one will agree with if you are the most successful country in the world ever you get to choose the language.
And then win like China comes along and bumps us off then we -- to speak Chinese but whoever's number one.
It's like the World Series cup you know that's.
Good pain -- -- hot I.
-- -- and -- -- -- today UN but I can't so the I will take it doesn't back to front arguably all right.
