…wants to stop the sale of Playboy and Penthouse at military bases around the world, invoking an argument that at the very least is scientifically questionable: that consuming even soft pornography makes men more prone to committing sex crimes. A doctor by profession, Broun says he began drafting the bill after a constituent described her distress at having watched, along with her young children, an officer buy a nudie magazine at a military exchange store.I can just imagine the effect of Broun’s actions now…
“Soldier!”Or something like that (yes, I know there was a bit of “license” there)…
“Sir! Yes, Sir!”
“March on down to the PX and pick me up the latest issues of Busty Beauties, Gent, and Celebrity Skin! ON THE DOUBLE!”
“Sir! No, Sir!”
“Sir! The private cannot comply as ordered because U.S. House Representative Paul Broun of Georgia had those magazines banned Sir!”
“WHY THAT LITTLE MAGGOT! HOW DARE A CIVILIAN TRY TO KEEP ME FROM PUNCHIN’ THE MUNCHKIN!! DROP AND GIVE ME TWENTY!”
And I would strongly advise Broun’s “constituent” here to grow up. Allowing this indulgence among our military men, many of whom are at their physical and sexual peak, is the very least we can do considering the likelihood that they could be killed or wounded (along with our women, of course) in combat.
As the story tells us, though…
Broun has been in Congress since last year, when he was elected to replace the 10th District representative, who died of cancer. This July he faces a primary vote against a conservative member of the state's House of Representatives, Barry Fleming, in a district Broun describes as very Republican. But Broun denies the bill is linked to the election. "The purpose is just to get DoD to uphold the law," he says.And if you believe that, then I’ll bet you believe that everyone buys Playboy and Penthouse only for the news articles.
Also, this takes you to more information on Broun. And you really don't have to wonder whether or not he has actually served, do you?
