Rep. Paul Broun, a Georgia Republican, has introduced a bill that would ban the sale of soft-core pornographic magazines on military bases.

According to Broun, "Allowing sale of pornography on military bases has harmed military men and women by escalating the number of violent, sexual crimes, feeding a base addiction, eroding the family as the primary building block of society, and denigrating the moral standing of our troops both here and abroad."

The bill would amend a 1997 law that banned more hardcore magazines,

Soldiers have enjoyed looking at pictures of nude or scantily clad women for a long time. According to IMBD, "During World War II, Miss West's name was applied to various pieces of military equipment and was thus listed in Webster's New International Dictionary, Second Edition. The Royal Air Force named its inflatable life jackets "Mae Wests," and United States Army soldiers referred to twin-turreted combat tanks also as "Mae Wests."

I say let the people have their porn!
