Post Bill would block computers bought in S.C. from accessing porn

Quote:
People buying computers in South Carolina would be limited in their access to porn online under newly proposed legislation.

A bill pre-filed this month by state Rep. Bill Chumley would require sellers to install digital blocking capabilities on computers and other devices that access the internet to prevent the viewing of obscene content.

Proposed legislation would block online porn from computers bought in South Carolina.
The proposal also would prohibit access to any online hub that facilities prostitution and would require manufacturers or sellers to block any websites that facilitate trafficking.

Both sellers and buyers could get around the limitation, for a fee. The bill would fine manufacturers that sell a device without the blocking system, but they could opt out by paying $20 per device sold. Buyers could also verify their age and pay $20 to remove the filter.

Money collected would go toward the Attorney General Office’s human trafficking task force.

Chumley’s bill has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee.

My first thought when I read this is it has to be an onion story. Unfortunately it's not. It's a real live idiot story.

By paying the government to have to restriction lifted, effectively 'registers' you as someone who wants to look at 'obscene' material...

The term Big Brother doesn't begin to cover this. Not that I care to look at porn on the internet, but I can scratch off SC from my 'Possible Places to Retire To' list....

Obscene is different from illegal. This an end around of the first amendment. and the fourth. This one will never make past the SC, if indeed it makes it out of committee.

This will be shot down as soon as the first civil liberties group files a lawsuit, which will be the same week where it enters the books as official law. The lawsuit will succeed, appeals get dragged out, and ultimately the law is struck down. Tax payers foot the bill on this entire misadventure.

This is not the first time this has happened.

Its actual point is for the bill's Republican sponsors to rile up a group of supporters. When it fails, they can blame it on those dern libruls controlling everything, but vote for me because I'll continue fighting them. They win by consolidating the base even more, and bear no cost for the bill's inevitable legal failure.

At this point, it is a pre filed bill. Meaning that no one has acted on it. My guess is that even in South Carolina this one will never make it out of committee.

Correct...

I HATE when bills that are going nowhere are shouted from the highest mountain as if there's some great movement going on...
