Indecency in Advertising

Email Print

In a bipartisan display of mindlessness, Rep. Jim Moran – did I spell his name correctly? – (D-VA) and Robert Brady (R-TX) have introduced legislation that would require the FCC to define – and enforce – Viagra commercials as “indecent.” If these clowns really want to go after commercials that lead people to engage in “indecent” activity, why do they not include prohibiting commercials from the Pentagon urging young men and women to join the military for the purpose of engaging in the slaughter of men, women, and children in foreign lands? Is killing others to be encouraged, while enjoying mutual consensual pleasure is to be criminalized? People like these probably spend a great deal of time wondering why intelligent persons no longer give serious consideration to their babblings.
