Help! Mom! There's Wingnut Idealogues Writing Children's Books

Looking for a book that will teach your children that taxes are eee-vil and that liberals and broccoli are scarier than the ghosts under your bed?

Well look no further. Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed is here to help!

The Amazon synopsis is as follows:

Written in simple text, readers can follow along with Tommy and Lou as
they open a lemonade stand to earn money for a swing set. But when
liberals start demanding that Tommy and Lou pay half their money in
taxes, take down their picture of Jesus, and serve broccoli with every
glass of lemonade, the young brothers experience the downside to living
in Liberaland.

Call me crazy, but when's the last time a liberal demanded that a private enterprise couldn't display a picture of Jesus or demanded that they sell something that they don't want to sell? And since when are taxes half of a business's revenue?

Shakespeare's Sister has some nice commentary as well.
