A Ramble for Thursday

Adelphia Cable has triple X porn and we all should be ashamed! Hark! Everyone batten down the hatches and sign the petition to have this REMOVED or we are going to HELL!

I got an e-mail at work Tuesday and it proceeded to tell me all about Adelphia, XXX movies, how I should feel, and that it is going to ruin the moral fiber of today's youth.

Who are they to tell me how I feel? I am not going to lie and say I have never seen one. I have. Would I watch one again? Maybe, maybe not. Don't get me wrong, I am not a porn star, nor do I know any or support any, and I am not sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for whomever is the top star of the moment, to release their new video. But after reading this article I was a little irate. I am an adult, I should be smart enough and strong enough to make up my own mind. I don't know, If they start with a pay cable access thing, what will be next.

Of course getting a little irate strikes up a few questions in my mind..
Isn't this a pay service?
Aren't there such things as parental lock outs on TV's, cable boxes and such now days?
Don't you get access to it if you want it and want to pay for it?
Could it be that people now days don't have the time or take the time to look out for their kids? Take the time to wonder where they are and what they are doing?
Why are we picking on Adelphia? They for sure aren't the only ones out there offering this service.

If you don't want it, don't pay for it or watch it..

It is out there for free. On the streets, on the web...
Some places will rent it to anyone regardless of your age.
Some people recruit kids for it.
Pimps beat up women daily.

Shouldn't this be where these people should start?

Hasn't Porn in some form or fashion been around for ages? Adult porn, however right or wrong it may be, is just that. ADULTS. OF AGE. Some a little slow in the head and not making wise life choices but it is their life. They will have to answer for it themselves. They are going to ply their trade one way or the other and some people are going to get it one way or another.

Obviously there is a demand for it or Adelphia and others would not be doing it.

Talk openly with your kids and best you can direct them in life.
Once they get a certain age, you have no control anyway, but can hope what you gave as guidance will be there for them.

Don't subscribe, use parental locks, be there for your kids
Less demand, less money to be made, less availability.
Better yet, turn the TV off and take your kids to a park.
