If you support Obama, it's still a bad idea to hope that the weakest candidate gets nominated to oppose him. If it were Obama vs Santorum (which it won't be), Obama could still lose, say if Israel bombs Iran and gas prices go to $8.

Maineman,

Not really.

The story here is that the "war on porn" is a family values issue, which is why it motivates leftists to react this way. THIW.

I used to live above a pizza place and a kosher bakery, and I wouldn't want to do either again. I still support the legality of pizza and baked goods.

Of course you did. You're half Italian half Jewish and wanted to be close to the ethnic foods dearest to you.

Would you mind if you wife patronized those two businesses?

Living above a restaurant produces consrant food smells. Porn shops do not.

It wasn't the smells that were troublesome, it was the customers coming in and out, and in the case of the pizza joint, hanging around outside.

If you had an issue with the pizza patrons, how would you feel about the adult book store patrons? Like if one of them started talking to your wife. Or said hello to your children.

Environmental issues are not private conduct. They have significant negative externalities. While children are also not private conduct by virtue that children are separate human beings and not chattel to be treated as you wish.

Because there are xxx book stores everywhere. They buy interstate billboards up and down 95. There are stores all over America and more visible than ever. There are probably fewer in NYC, but they show no sign of going away.

Huh?

There are huge numbers of different types of business establishments that are legal and that I agree should be legal. My attitude toward my wife patronizing them varies depending on the type of establishment.

I might for example feel a bit unsettled if she partronized this store, even though I fully support its right to exist:

Having seen bar clientele and having seen porn shop clientele (about 3 blocks away, long closed), I prefer porn shop.

Porn shop clientele are very discreet. They definitely are not out to attract attention. Bar clientele can make an awful lot of noise, especially at 4 AM.

But as I said, I don't want either next door.

Yes. That is probably true, but if you had to live in let's say an apartment above stores, it's safe to say you rather be above a florist shop than a porn store. That's the point (don't bring up nonsensical sewage treatment plants or slaughter houses, as those aren't the same sort of retail/service businesses as a hair stylist, florist, or a porn shop. Those would be industrial, and not able to come into retail locations.

Unless it's a "tittie" bar or a "biker bar", most people would rather have the normal clientele a bar gets than the type of people that patronize a porn shop (or at least the stereotype of the type of people that patronize porn shops.
