At the highest of the agenda have been books to be banned that comprise heinous materials that might pervert the minds of adults. “Capitalism and Freedom” by Milton Friedman was focused by the India Pale Ale Caucus as a result of it is a blueprint for the wealthy to get richer whereas screwing employees. “The Conservative Intellectual Movement In America” by George H.

But a last-minute maneuver by the Pilsner Coalition, citing Henry Miller’s “The Tropic of Cancer” and “Lolita” by Vladimir Nabokov, kicked book-banning again to the Stout Subcommittee based mostly on the truism that banning books simply makes them extra widespread. Bottoms-up!

Just as a result of there isn’t a basement at Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington D.C. does’t imply Democrats did not have a world baby intercourse trafficking operation beneath the pizza ovens.

None of it’s true, in fact, however so what? It’s politics, Republican type. Get used to it.
Hey Satan, Where’s the Good Stuff?
When Ken Burns involves city you understand feathers are gonna fly. He retains making documentaries that dredge up information and truths that may put folks on edge—particularly the individuals who might have been pulling the feathers over our eyes.
Well, maintain onto your “Pearl of Great Price,” as a result of Burns has been sniffing round The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its ongoing battle with … await it … that is proper, Satan.
In an epistle for The Salt Lake Tribune, Burns notes that “the devil has been used as a political and theological figure in LDS discourse.” But—and here is the kicker—Satan’s needs have shifted over time. As Burns defined it, Satan as soon as pushed for interracial marriage and jobs for ladies—issues the church fought in opposition to tooth and nail. But oddly, the satan does not care about these issues now that the outdated white males in The Tower of Power have accepted them.
Then Burns dropped the hammer: “Given LDS assertions that good and evil are fixed and immutable, how could Satan’s political interests have changed so dramatically?” DO NOT LOOK AT THE MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN!
Something is rotten at Temple Square and it could possibly be that bastard Satan or perhaps … Well, by no means thoughts.
Postscript—That’s nearly it for one more week right here at Smart Bomb, the place we will not outline “woman,” however we all know one once we see one. OK Wilson, inform the fellows within the band to chill it—for cryin’ out loud.
Anyhow, the Mormons appear to have a Satan drawback however alternatively, the place would Christianity be with out the satan? Our researchers right here at Smart Bomb have but to make a direct connection to Satan on this one, however the Trumpists appear to have a Donny Jr. drawback. Looks just like the prince-in-waiting despatched a textual content final 12 months to then-White House chief of workers Mark Meadows on tips on how to seize the presidency after Big Daddy’s loss on the polls.

The veto was overridden by Republicans within the Legislature however that did not cease Carlson from questioning Cox’s manhood. (We child you not.) “Spencer Cox identifies as a male, at least to some limited extent. Now, Cox could have cleared up that mystery a lot more quickly, simply by declaring, ‘I’m a man.’ …” Well, think about the supply—Carlson additionally thinks Vladimir Putin is a cool dude. ‘Nuff mentioned.
It does not seem like Satan goes out of enterprise anytime quickly, regardless of the LDS Church. Yep, outdated beelzebub has been busy recently and he appears to have a lot of helpers. So let’s give him his due, Wilson—choose it:
Please enable me to introduce myself
I’m a person of wealth and style
I’ve been round for an extended, lengthy 12 months
Stole many a person’s soul and religion
I used to be ‘spherical when Jesus Christ
Had his second of doubt and ache
Made rattling certain that Pilate
Washed his palms and sealed his destiny
Pleased to fulfill you
Hope you guess my identify
But what’s puzzling you
Is the character of my sport
I caught round St. Petersburg
When I noticed it was a time for a change
Killed the Tzar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in useless
I rode a tank
Held a basic’s rank
When the blitzkrieg raged
And the our bodies stank
Let me please introduce myself
I’m a person of wealth and style
And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed earlier than they attain Bombay
So for those who meet me
Have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and a few style
Use all of your well-learned politesse
Or I’ll lay your soul to waste
Tell me child, what’s my identify
Tell me honey, can ya guess my identify
Ooo, who, who ooo, who, who
