That's garbage about libraries being filled with books advocating marijuana use. We have anti-pot books in my library. We have plenty of kids' anti-drug books, we don't have one single one advocating drug use.

Ha! That's funny.

(step back and realize that this is adult humor in the form of a children's book)



I guess were back to no humor around here.

I think the universe would implode if FYM had a sense of humor for more than three days.

The problem isn't that there's no sense of humor; I'm sure that the book is meant to be a satire. What scares the heck out of me is the possibility that some people might not get the joke and actually give it to a kid.

no, it's not a satire. that's the thing. i love satire. this isn't it.



read:


Book Description
This full-color illustrated book is a fun way for parents to teach young children the valuable lessons of conservatism. Written in simple text, readers can follow along with Tommy and Lou as they open a lemonade stand to earn money for a swing set. But when liberals start demanding that Tommy and Lou pay half their money in taxes, take down their picture of Jesus, and serve broccoli with every glass of lemonade, the young brothers experience the downside to living in Liberaland.

From the Publisher
Would you let your child read blatantly liberal stories with titles such as "King & King," "No, George, No," or "It's Just a Plant"?
Unless you live in Haight-Ashbury or write for the New York Times, probably not. But with the nation’s libraries and classrooms filled with overtly liberal children’s books advocating everything from gay marriage to marijuana use, kids everywhere are being deluged with left-wing propaganda.

"Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed" is the book conservative parents have been seeking. This illustrated book — the first in the "Help! Mom!" series from Kids Ahead — is perfect for parents who seek to share their traditional values with their children, as well as adults who wish to give a humorous gift to a friend.

Hailed as "the answer to a baseball mom's prayers" by talk radio host Melanie Morgan, "Liberals Under My Bed" has already been the subject of coverage in The Wall Street Journal and Harper’s magazine. Written by a self-proclaimed "Security Mom for Bush" and featuring hilarious full-color illustrations by a Reuben Award winning artist, it is certain to be one of the most talked about children's books of the year.

so Amazon has been fooled?

i suppose we could get very artsy, deconstructing the whole thing; however, i think we all know that there are people out there who are going to buy this for their children and read it to them as if it were a storybook.

those people are idiots.

but still ... what does it say about a movement that is looking more and more maoist in propaganda tactics?

All it says is someone is trying to make money on the whole "conservative/liberal" divide.

I'd worry more about the stuff that is handed out for free.

Perhaps a bit of info on the publish, whom I tracked down, may shed some light. Seems to support Irvine's contention.....

"South Park Conservatives" cracks me up, considering the show is a parody of small-town conservatism and their narrow POVs. When they make fun of "liberal celebrities," how is that any different than how a small town hysterically would perceive Hollywood?

The show is decidedly anarchist.

anyway, satire or not, the lemonade stand example of what liberals will do to you is pretty funny.

Humor around here generally gets tossed out the window when liberals are made fun of...personally, I think political satire on both sides of the spectrum is pretty darn funny.
