Had the same thought. I don't buy into such things as Max peddles, but I'm still trying to figure out where the FBI became the Porn Police. I musta missed that article the last time I read the Constitution...
I remember reading statistics on % of hotel guests who access porn from their rooms, and it was over 50%, as I recall. I think the story had to do with Rupert Murdoch, because he peddles that stuff to hotels everywhere. I just think it's a big fat waste of time, but some ppl like stuff like that: go after porn, go after marijuana, and pass anti flag burning amendments.
I wasn't aware the Constitution addressed porn.
Me too, although it would seem that some FBI agents don't really want that duty. They'd rather be fighting the War on Terror, which has consumed so much of the FBI's time since 9/11 that new criminal cases are down 70% from the 2000 level.
Other agencies are having to pick up the slack, according to news reports.
Maybe we'll eventually have a porn control agency along the lines of the DEA or the BATF so the FBI can get back to its primary mission, whatever that is. Oh, yeah -- to investigate certain crimes after they've been committed. I think that was what J. Edgar Hoover always advocated as the purpose of the FBI; he was adamantly opposed to a "national police force." Nobody in authority at the FBI apparently shares that view these days.
It happened after they rounded up ALL of the ISLAMOFASCIST SAVAGES WHO WANT TO DESTROY WESTERN CIVILIZATION, and found themselves with nothing useful to do....
