Another Quote of the Day: Stockpiled Youngsters Edition

Marriage is the crucible by which we pour all of our values and pass them on to our children, and that is how the culture is renewed each time. So, if we lose marriage — for instance, if our children are raised in warehouses, so to speak. There have been civilizations that have tried to do that. The Spartans did that. They took the children away and taught them to be warriors. It’s a good way to defend a country, but not much of a way to run a civilization.
- Rep. Steve King (R-IA), arguing the case against same-sex marriage.

Listen, if you're one of the warehoused kids in Boston or England or Iowa, comment below. How is the ol' warehouse? Good inventory policies? Are you barcoded or RFID chipped, or counted by hand? When they need a shipment of children, do they bring in dollies or simply have you walk to the loading dock on your own?

Also if you're in one of those places and you're not in a warehouse, how did you escape? Did you sneak out when the supervisor was marrying a dog or sheep?
