This does not sound good.

All I want is for the US gov’t to ban hardcore porn. I trust them enough they will not go past that point to infringe on our liberties. We are not that socialist UK after all.
We shall all come to love big brother
Yet Rob Halford would vote FOR the very people he railed about if their stance on gay marriage was “aye”....
Just imagine the possibilities against your political opponents...
Sad, but probably true, still a great song, though.
If one wants to be a REALLY bad guy, it’s pretty simple:
1. Pay cash for a laptop in a city not close to where you live.
2. Get some mild disguise stuff (baseball cap with dreadlocks, sunglasses, etc. maybe a pillow to make you look heavier)
3. Keep all of the above in a cheap storage unit which you pay cash for.
4. Use the computer only at free wi-fi spots, preferably at a broad range of locations. Homes with unsecured wi-fi would be the best. Use each location only once.
5. Use that computer only for your nefarious activity and NOTHING else.
6. The disguise is for security cameras at the starbucks, etc. that you use. And don’t ever drive up to them. Walk from a more remote parking stall.
If the authorities even believe it’s you and search your house, the only thing they will find connecting you to the storage unit is the key, which is simply a key to a Master-lock. And for all they know it’s one of lots of “old” keys in your house. Without the computer
You’d have to be up to nastyness to go to that trouble, but I have a feeling it would not be all that hard if you were up to “borne conspiracy” type stuff.
I used to work at Penneys in the warehouse back in 1972. A coworker asked me why I came up with so many ways to rip off the company. I never, ever did it, but my mind always went that way when we were just sitting around. Same thing here.
“I trust them enough they will not go past that point to infringe on our liberties.”
Are you serious??
it was sarcasm...
ban hardcore ... just a stepping stone, just like the 1/2% income tax of only a few Americans in 1913.
The Regi me has already set into place Ges tapo-style surve illance and snitc hing.
Actually, it would be to their benefit to keep porn so the younger and energetic will be distracted and not focus on the Reg ime’s removal as such a ban will be recognized as cens or s hip and open up many eyes to what is really the A genda.
Am I missing something, or did you perhaps forget this: </s>

So sorry to hear this coming to our good friends in the UK.
I am sure we will be joining them shortly as should Odumbo get reelected this will definitely be something he wants to incorporate.

I should have known, but my the batteries in my sarcasm detector are a little run down.
