Keep On Kissing Your Freedom‘s Away.
Yesterday the government made sure to take yet one more of your freedom's away. How's that you say? Well, in federal courts yesterday, a guy named Max Hardcore, actually his name is Paul Little, was found guilty on 10 counts of distributing obscene materials over the internet and mail.
First off, here's a little background. The Postmaster in Tampa Bay Florida ordered these videos. With the help of the Attorney General's office, they basically set up a sting, and all they had to do was wait for the DVD's to appear. As soon as they showed up, and probably some back room private viewings, with the repeat button on, they pressed charges.
Now here's the important part. Obscenity is a kinda moving target. What I find obscene you might not find obscene and vice versa. But the thing that is the most obscene is that the government is going to tell you and me what is obscene. It's not their jobs, this is not a nanny state. We have freedoms, we should have the freedom to do anything that is within the boundaries of the law in the privacy of our own homes.
Back to Max Hardcore. So this guy films consensual adult performing consensual sexual acts, all be it, some pretty gross stuff. Even by crazyshit standards…well kinda. Stuff like fisting, double fisting, golden showers, and throat gagging etc. Not the kinda porn I'd like to watch at home, or in the office. But there are people out there that like this shit. And guess what, there is this Constitution that says he can make it. Whoa, crazy huh? But then there some people that don't want this to be viewed by any human, so they have to figure out a way to get rid of these types of videos. That's where all of this comes into play. They don't like it. They arrest the people that make it. Then there are no more videos they don't like. Even if you like these videos.
Just keep all of this in mind. Since our current administration has put prosecuting obscenity above prosecuting drugs, violence or fraud. These are OUR tax dollars at work here. These people that prosecuted this case work for us. And yet, they are wasting out time, our money and our resources on a bullshit idea of controlling what we can and can't see. Please, please think of this the next time you vote. Make your voices heard. Write to your local papers, senators and congressman's office. Whatever the fuck it is. We need to let our government know that we, as adults, can pick and chose what it is we want to view or be a part of in our homes.
