MONTPELIER, Vermont - The Vermont state senate has just voted on a music bill which is the first of its kind in the entire United States.
Congressman Cooperton Blizzardbinster, 68, told the news media that after every state congressman received hundreds of emails, text messages, tweets, phone calls, and letters they decided that they had to listen to the voices of the people and act on their wishes.
The vast majority of Vermont residents (95.5%) are White and only (1.1%) are Black.
The Vermont senate, which consists of 30 senators, voted on The Anti-Rap Music Bill that would ban all rap music from being performed or even played within the state.
Congresswoman Marigold "Granny" Butterbuck, 63, who spearheaded the bill, was very clear in her explanation as to why the vote came out 29-1.
She pointed out that a vast majority of the residents of Vermont who are over the age of 50, are old-fashioned White folks, and therefore lean more towards classical music, opera music, Viennese waltzes, old German polkas, and the Hokey Pokey.
Congresswoman Butterbuck went on to explain that lifelong Vermont resident Henderson F. McPickles, 73, of Berlin, Vermont, expressed the thoughts and views of most of the state residents.
He stated that just about everyone in Vermont feels that rap music causes senior citizens lots of needless stress, tension, pressure, and the uncontrollable urge to want to scratch furniture.
