Republican Congressman Trying to Ban Soft-Porn Magazines in the Army

Representative Broun (R-GA) from Georia has introduced a bill into Congress that would outlaw the sale of magazines such as Maxim, Playboy, and Penthouse at Military Bases. He would also define lewd so that it would include Laddie magazines, thus bringing them under existing government law. “Our troops should not see their honor sullied so that the moguls behind magazines like Playboy and Penthouse can profit,” said Rep. Paul Broun, unveiling his House bill April 16. 

I love how republicans always cry about supporting the troops, but now they want to remove any ability of service men to get some gratification while putting their lives in harm over seas. At least their priorities are straight. No protection on Humvees, lack of funding, upgrades to armor? Nah, those aren't important things to the troops. Seeing girls boobies...now that is an issue causing a crisis for our men and women in uniforms. He has justified the bill by using some twisted logic making the argument that this is aimed at protecting the honor of the troops. So we honor service men and women by preventing them the ability to acquire jack-off material? This isn't going to effect rapes of civilians over seas at all. 

Can't a Marine Jack-off in peace? Seeing a military barrack without pictures of naked women in it is like seeing an army uniform that is not camouflage. This is attacking the very fibers that make the military what it is. I wonder if this bill would cover the Miley Cyrus Vanity Fair photo shoot? Republicans are soo backward. I am just waiting for a bill that would declare that the world is flat, or that the sun revolves around the earth. Don't worry, I am sure that Mr. Broun will be caught with a prostitute or with child porn with in the year. The text of the bill can be viewed here.
