Problem with priorities at Department of Justice

Apparently, the Attorney General has decided not to waste all of his resources on the War on Terrorism.
Early last month, the bureau's Washington Field Office began recruiting for a new anti-obscenity squad. Attached to the job posting was a July 29 Electronic Communication from FBI headquarters to all 56 field offices, describing the initiative as "one of the top priorities" of Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales
Maybe I'm a cynic, but it looks to me like Gonzales is attempting to burnish his conservative credentials in advance of a future Supreme Court nomination.

Mind you, I have no problem with local authorities enforcing community standards. I fully support any and all efforts to combat the exploitation of children by the porn industry. However, I don't think the feds need to be involved in policing adult porn. Sort of like my position on littering. If a cop sees someone littering by all means issue a citation but don't ignore a 911 call in order to track down litterers.

Bill, I think we get this sort of action gets started because of rulings like RoeVWade. States start having such disparate views on what is right and wrong and pretty soon their saying there isn't equal protection under the law. Looking to stem the tide before the supreme court steps in and invents some right to pornography that isn't in the constitution
