On one hand, the government is doing its best, through the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, to remove books from the hands of children. After all, children might be hurt by books (never mind clothes, beds, chairs, etc.). On the other hand, the courts declare children can watch anything available on the internet, even porn. According to Fox New.com "The government lost its final attempt Wednesday to revive a federal law intended to protect children from sexual material and other objectionable content on the Internet."
Huh? As Rena Jones stated on a private forum, "I'm sorry, but people are so mixed up these days. Protecting kids from lead is good. Making the law so it affects everything a child touches nearly illegal is bad. But now this?
"Sorry kids, but I'm gonna have to confiscate that classic copy of Winnie-The-Pooh. Why don't you go surf the Net for porn. Now, go on, have a good time."
Sorry -- some things just make me rage! Who are these people and who voted them into office?"
Good question, Rena. I wonder if anyone has a reasonable answer?
We must keep fighting stupid laws. Have you visited with your Congress members lately? Well, that's too long.
4RV Publishing won't add porn to the book list for children's books, we promise. Ish.
