Republicans to soldiers: You can risk your life but you can't read Playboy

Can you image a bill like this coming from anywhere but Dumbfuckistan Republicans??


House Rep. Paul Broun [R-GA], with 15 Republican co-sponsors recently introduced a bill that would ban on sales of Playboy and Penthouse magazines on U.S. military installations.

Let me get this straight... US soldiers are involved in 2 hellish wars, both of which aren't going well, and these congressmens' biggest concern is to remove soldiers rights to read Playboy??

Rep. Broun explains:
"Allowing the sale of pornography on military bases has harmed military men and women by: escalating the number of violent, sexual crimes; feeding a base addiction; eroding the family as the primary building block of society; and denigrating the moral standing of our troops both here and abroad."
If this doesn't give you an idea of how fucked up and backward thinking these morons are, I don't know what could. I'm speechless.

What you're missing is that without "Playboy" and "Penthouse" there would be more time for the troops to read their bibles--especially the OT.

Right -- the rise in violent sexual crimes are because of a magazine, not the amoral, violent war that is all around them.

Maybe those crimes are increasingly common because they're so infrequently prosecuted.
