Republican Congressman Paul Broun of Georgia has uncovered the real problem with America’s problem in eliminating miliants in Iraq–the sale of Playboy and Penthouse on military bases! His “Military Honor and Decency Act” would ban sales of “sexually explicit material on military bases. Broun argues, “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.” He does not want the American government to “foot the bill” on the sale of such material to our fine young men and women.
Finally, a Republican with a plan to end the war in Iraq!! If only President Bush would listen to the wise words of Congressman Broun it would send a message to al-Qaida that America will not longer support pornography. Once al-Qaida and the Taliban realize the Bush administration is on their side in the fight for decency, all fighting will cease in Iraq and Afghanistan. Why hasn’t the Bush administration told us about such brilliant Republican congressmen? Up to this point I thought the Taliban and al-Qaida were the enemies, little did I realize it was Playboy and Penthouse!
