Ban on Christians in Texas?

This month busybodies have grounded a lawn chair balloonist and cracked down on internet porn, but Nanny of the Month zeroes in on San Antonio where a hubbub is brewing about whether a proposed ordinance might actually ban Christians from holding city office.

Is it an unprecedented attack on Christianity or just a bunch of right wingers hyping a phony threat! Tune in and decide for yourself! H/T Reason.TV

 

Britain to Filter Out Porn

The United Kingdom’s Prime Minister David Cameron is cracking down on internet porn. Starting from January 2014, all broadband internet connections from the UK’s four ISPs (Virgin, Talk Talk, Sky and BT) will come with filter technology known as ‘default-on’ pre-installed. Default-on will see ISPs block pornography automatically. Only account holders who opt out will be able to access porn. H/T Next Media Animation

Iceland Chills to Internet Porn

Bloomberg Gun’s A-Blazin’

Diane Feinstein (circa 1995), Mayor Bloomberg and Sam Donaldson self-righteously denounce guns. Also, did you know that porn allegedly hurts short-term memory?

Porn Threatens Pullout

The porn industry failed this week in its bid to stop Measure B — the Los Angeles County Condom Initiative. Voters, by a margin of 55 to 45 percent, passed the initiative requiring XXX performers to wear condoms for their sex scenes. The measure also will set up a squad of health inspectors to periodically drop by the movie sets — unannounced — to enforce the requirement.

What next? Porn vows it won’t take the setback lying down. Some industry leaders are considering whether to vacate Los Angeles County and the San Fernando Valley that has long been the industry’s home. Where might they go? Neighboring Riverside and Ventura counties have been mentioned as possibilities. Another option: New Hampshire, where XXX filming is permitted. Guess that would put a new twist on the state’s motto: Live Free or Die.

Will Condoms Ruin Porn?

One of the most controversial ballot initiatives up for vote in the Nov. 6 election would require actors in porn movies shot in Los Angeles County to wear condoms and practice safe sex on camera. AIDS activists support the proposed measure while porn industry officials say it’s overly intrusive and harmful to their business. Reason TV takes an in-depth look at one of the most heated – and divisive – regulatory battles ever put to a vote.

Porn Gets Behind Obama

The porn industry backs Obama 5-1. “Ah, no surprise there,” says pundit Stephen Green. “Everyone in that business is used to getting professionally screwed.” Also find out who told the biggest lie of the week — Vice President Joe Biden, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) or First Lady Michelle Obama? Green brings you all this, and the latest on the Benghazi attacks, in this Week in Blogs.

Should Porn Go Third Party?

After Jenna Jameson’s declaration of support for Mitt Romney, President Obama has now picked up a bevy of endorsements from an entire entourage of adult film actors. But in an interview with RT, the Russian global TV network, Quentin Boyer of Pink Visual pimps Libertarian hopeful Gary Johnson as the best choice for the porn industry.  Boyer, an industry insider, also says it’s not the threat of government regulation that poses the greatest danger to porn so much as shrinking revenues due to piracy.

In closing, we can understand the inherent appeal of a Johnson candidacy for porn stars, but how might the XXX vote be divided if there was also a Captain Winky in the race? H/T Blazing Cat Fur
