    from outside the USA-- to them it's like dropping down in some alien world, encountering the prevalence, in the southern US, of this christo-fascist right wing prudery.

    That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10

    •  You have to understand a couple of things. (4+ / 0-)

      To begin with Middle Tennessee has become rabidly right wing. It wasn't always like that. Secondly most of the printing companies in the state have ties to religious groups.  Nobody wants to take the chance of pissing off their main source of business.

      As for the idiocy of our elected officials - it runs rampant.
      We're stuck with Phil Roe, Lamar Alexander, and Bob Corker.
      Bob Corker has had so many folks telling him what they think of him and his positions that there is no longer a way to email his office unless you want your group to get a tour of Capital Hill. Who knows what he does with all the actual letters that are sent to him! Phone calls don't get answered either.
