1. I guess it was inevitable...

I shudder to think what comes next. Fortunately, I'm old, so I probably won't be around to see it.

2. I never trust a book-burner. They'll burn anything and anybody. The kindest

thing we can do to them is lock them up.

5. I didn't know they read books there, LOL

I live in N. Virginia and it's not far from the truth, there are some real dumb asses in the southern parts of the state.

6. One quick way to solve this shit

Get a Bible, turn to one of the really pornographic parts…the part where Lot’s daughters raped him will do nicely…change the names and read the story out loud at the next school board meeting.

9. We don't need no stinking books...

Just like in the latest Fahrenheit 451 movie, we just need Kindle so the Government can "update" the subject matter as needed.
