It’s not much of a poll. They ended the voting with less than one thousand votes.

Yes, you are correct. I was taking a look at the comments when I finally remembered what the perverts mean by the City of Brotherly Love.

The FREEPING is working, the YES is now up to 31%.

Looks like they pulled it. I saw a poll asking what event you’ve attended.

Odd that there wasn’t an option for a Tea Party.

Now up to about 34% after my vote. Results show 66% want these books on the library shelves ... pathetic!

Right up Kevin Jennings’ (”safe schools czar”) alley. The dark alley...

I can only imagine how horrible they are. Yet ANOTHER reason to homeschool.

The poll question isn’t specific enough.

For all we know, some people voting “no” might be thinking that the school should’ve banned all three books.

This is the next county over from where I sit. No wonder so many families homeschool there.

I know if I move down that way I will still home school. I don’t ever see Sassy going to public school again.
