ANOTHER SILLY BILL FROM THE TEXAS LEGISLATURE

A ban on suggestive cheerleader costumes and dance moves:

The bill filed by state Rep. Al Edwards, D-Houston, would ban “sexually suggestive” performances by school dance teams, drill teams and cheerleaders at athletic events or competitions. A squad that performs an inappropriate routine could be banned from performing for the rest of the school year, and the district or campus could be fined.
...
It was unclear late last week how much support Edwards' bill would garner in the Texas House. In the past, he has introduced bills that generated headlines but not much support from his legislative colleagues.

In 1989, he proposed allowing the state to amputate the fingers of drug dealers. And in 1991, he introduced a bill calling for a statewide vote on allowing corporal punishment of inmates in state prisons, saying that such disciplinary measures as flogging would help rehabilitate prisoners.


And he's a DEMOCRAT. How embarrassing.

Amputation and flogging?!

I don't get how this man calls himself a Democrat. Or, for that matter, a human being.
