Slippery Slope: California Begins CONTROL of Internet CONTENT

Editorialviagra order times;”>By Stephen Frank

pilule times;”>Notice that many tax increases and bond measures are “for the kids”? We want to make life better for children, so we pretend that government regulations are about making children safer, brighter, and more secure. In fact, taxes and regulations are based on power and control, by government. Seriously, Michelle Obama forcing kids to eat card board for lunch—pretending it is real food—is that for the kids, or just to show the next generation that government controls everything, even the morsels you are allowed to eat.

Now California has decided to use the power of government to determine what legal advertisements are allowed on social media. Soon, this will be expanded to ANY site that someone under 18 could look at, like the LA Times, blogs, etc. This is the slippery slope to government control of Internet content—for the kids!

“The law also makes it illegal to advertise items like drugs or guns to minors if it is illegal to market those products to minors in other media.

“If it’s illegal to sell something to a minor in a retail outlet, it ought to also be illegal to market that product to a minor on the internet,” says (former Democrat State Senator) Steinberg.”
