A small-town library is at risk of shutting down after residents of Jamestown, Michigan, voted to defund it rather than tolerate certain LGBTQ+-themed books. Residents voted on Tuesday to block a renewal of funds tied to property taxes, Bridge Michigan reported. The vote leaves the library with funds through the first quarter of next year. Once a reserve fund is used up, it would be forced to close, Larry Walton, the library board’s president, told Bridge Michigan–harming not just readers but the community at large.(Snip)Residents ultimately voted 62% to 37% against a measure that would have raised property taxes by roughly $24 in order to


The community fell short of burning the place to the ground, so shutting it down is the next best thing. Too bad they can't pull the funding immediately.

Normally, I'd say that we shouldn't be censoring reading materials and stooping to the liberal level. But, since the liberals want all things conservative censored, and conservative speech stifled or banned, I say, go for it!

If these books were kept in the adult part of the library, where nobody under the age of 18 could look at them or check them out, then I would not have a problem with them. Our public library in my hometown did that with Madonna's soft-core porn book years ago. I am a conservative, and I don't believe in censoring what adults can or cannot read. But since they insist on putting these materials where children not only can see them, but where they are actually pushed on children, that is just pure evil and I wholly support the 62% of Jamestown, Michigan who are fed up and have put a stop to this evil sodomite insanity!!!!!

Hmmm I wonder what books they HAVE banned... Dr. Seuss? Christian-themed? The Bible itself? Any conservative stories, promotion of heterosexuality? Huckleberry Finn? any Mark Twain? How about Rudyard Kipling? There's more. We know who the book burners are, and it isn't conservatives. But as we know, there are subjects and themes that are too mature for children. And, in the context of school libraries promoting aberrant sexual behaviors, nowadays, the last thing you want is for a confused child to go ask a "teacher" to explain.

FTA: “I’m not quite sure what instigated the culture wars that we’re seeing, but libraries are certainly at the front end.” What instigated the so-called culture wars is the Democrat Party. I would hesitate to approve banning a book but I don’t believe that badly written smut, designed to push an agenda, need have a place in a public library. In the article a library critic lists the type of books this library purchased. A huge proportion of those purchased, for adults as well as children, fall into the LBGQ whatever category. This genre of writing is not known for its literary quality. It’s safe to assume all these books are trash. Tax payers are right to cut this activist library off public support.

“I’m not quite sure what instigated the culture wars that we’re seeing, but libraries are certainly at the front end,” Mikula said. " Satan instigated the culture wars. Satan has led the "children" (the baby boomers) to destruction of absolute truth where now everything is relative. Now the children and grandchildren of the baby boomers are living in a world where true truth no longer matters. As a student at one New England's prestigious small colleges (which were originally founded as Christian seminaries) in the late 1960s, I recall (with embarrassment and shame now) conversations with fellow students where WE declared that there is no absolute truth...."everything is relative". Apparently, it was quite a common declaration for our generation. We turned our backs on Christian truth... even at those elite little "Christian" colleges. Now, two generations later, we are living in hellish times when no one knows what is true any longer. Even the "news" is untrue, not to be trusted. The United States has become a land of the People of the Lie. And I helped. I see it all so clearly now. We need Revival. And revival starts with the individual as it must. How do we get there? Read 2 Peter, verses 3 through 10 for starters. There is a reason that the great colleges of the United States were seminaries first.

I remember when libraries first started installing computers for public use and they had to put all kinds of filters on them because perverts were using them to watch porn. Now those same libraries are promoting porn. This country is no longer sliding down the slippery slope. We are in free fall.

Yes, shut down this tyranny of the minority. We're sick and tired of lowlifes telling us what we can and can't do and forcing their immorality on us. Remember when they used to say you can't legislate morality? Well, they're certainly trying to legislate immorality, and that's exactly what they were doing back when they were telling us we couldn't legislate morality. Pure evil.

Instead he demanded that control of the bank be handed back to the American people and slammed the way it had freely been printing money through the pandemic. 'We don't need to audit the Fed,' said.

Russian tanks, trucks and artillery are amassing in southern Ukraine as Putin's forces seek to tighten their grip on the region amid a valiant counter-offensive by Kyiv. The Kherson region near Crimea has been under Kremlin control since March 2 after a bloody six-day battle, with Russians driving north from the occupied peninsula. Yet the invaders have faced intense pushback by Ukraine over recent weeks, with Kyiv now confident it will liberate the region by September. According to the British Ministry of Defence (MoD) daily intelligence update this morning: 'Long convoys [...] continue to move away from Ukraine's Donbas region and are headed southwest.'

In February, American basketball star Brittney Griner was arrested at a Moscow airport after attempting to bring cannabis oil into the country, which is illegal according to Russian law. In the almost six months since being apprehended, Griner has lingered in a less-than-comfortable prison cell. On Thursday, the legal proceedings of the case came to a close when a Russian court delivered a guilty verdict, followed by a harsh sentence of nine years behind bars. None of Thursday’s developments should have come as a surprise to anyone.

The IRS budget for FY 2022 totals nearly $14 billion ($11.9 billion in appropriated funds) with a full-time equivalent (FTE) staff ceiling of 79,808 (75,533 from appropriated funding.) Now, the Democrat-controlled Congress, at the behest of the Biden Administration, wants to take that up an additional almost $80 billion, with 1% going to Department of the Treasury offices other than the IRS. That adds up to nearly $93 billion, seven times this year’s budget. SEVEN TIMES.

The package would be one of the largest so far and is expected to be announced as early as Monday, three sources briefed on the matter told Reuters. The US has given about $8.8bn in aid to Ukraine since Russia’s invasion on February 24. The officials, speaking to Reuters on the condition of anonymity, said that President Joe Biden had not yet signed the next weapons package, and cautioned that weapons packages can change in value and content before they are signed.
