It Takes A Village?

The BBC reports that a court has thrown out COPPA, an Internet-based nanny state law passed “for the children”:

A US federal judge has overturned a law designed to protect children from viewing internet pornography, saying it violated the right of free speech….

“It is not reasonable for the government to expect all parents to shoulder the burden to cut off every possible source of adult content for their children, rather than the government’s addressing the problem at its source,” government lawyer Peter D Keisler wrote following the four-week hearing, the Associated Press news agency reported.

If it is not reasonable to expect parents to care for their children, shall all children be rounded up into communal homes, watched over by Tyne Daly? Give me a break. If we’re going to ignore so clearly and completely the First Amendment (in the true sense because this is the US Congress we’re talking about here, so there’s no ‘incorporation’ involved), can we at least not channel Hillary Clinton while we do it? Thank you.
