    State Senate passes bill that would allow teachers to be prosecuted for distributing materials deemed harmful to minors. The GOPers say it's to combat pornography and that teachers won't be prosecuted for teaching works of literary or scientific value. Of course, there's no real definition of what would be considered pornographic. But hey, at least Kansans won't have to worry about Toni Morrison anymore.

    These Kansas republicans have been on the top of their game lately.

    Put them in jail? Geez, even YankeeFan thinks video surveillance and a 50 percent termination rate would be sufficient.

    If you ever read a Poin Files thread you'd realize they're already putting teachers in jail in each and every state.

    Presumably there are already laws against distributing pornography to minors.

    Apparently the Kansas Teabag Party is convinced there needs to be additional reasons to throw teachers in jail. Wonder what those might be?

    Apparently also they feel no need to fix the nearly billion-dollar budget deficit nitwit teabag Guv Brownbrain has steered them into.

    Not to worry. They'll all just wait until the phone call comes from KockBros.Com, giving them all orders on what to do.

    Kansas has been racking up WTF points left and right while Florida and Ohio get the glory.

    Yeah, for doing something actually illegal, not doing something that's in their scope of duties.

    It's not like they're assigning them to write Penthouse letters in their creative writing classes.

    Kind of reminds you of that phone call from George Soros, doesn't it?

    Democrats had planned to fight the bill Tuesday when it was up for debate, but because of confusion and the absence of a few key members from the Senate chamber, – one of whom was in the bathroom – no Democrat spoke against the bill or posed questions about when it could be amended."

    The fuck?

    Any teacher with any common sense is only showing sex ed stuff that has been stamped for approval by the central office or the school board. If a teacher gets thrown in jail for that, doing their job as directed by their bosses, then the applicable lawsuit should be coming.

    I would not think this deals only with sex ed.

    I could see a teacher showing a PG movie and having a parent bitch. (Only show G, FYI).
    What about giving a kid Harry Potter to read?
    How about teaching about a universe being created 5 billion years ago?
    What about doing research that the Gulf War was a mistake?

    It's just too vague.
