    All The Other States Beg California To Add Them To Travel Ban

    U.S.—After California added Iowa to its growing list of states to which the government will not fund trips, all the other states began clamoring to get added to this ban list.

    "Wait---there's a way to get Californian politicians banned from traveling here? Where do we sign up?" said one state legislator in Georgia. "Is there a waiting list? Wait---all we have to do is refuse to fund gender transition surgeries!?! That's amazing!"

    While just eleven states are currently on the list, dozens more are applying.
    As can be seen, this is from the Babylon Bee. HOWEVER, the first sentence of the article is not satire. It is true. The "ban" pertains to state-paid travel to other states for conferences and such.

    1. The Babylon Bee is not clickbait. It is a satire site akin to The Onion. It's articles are original, not rip-offs of other people's work. Unlike many clickbait sites. It does not use hype-headlines to exaggerate the outcome of events. Unlike many clickbait sites. The Bee clearly states it is satire. Unlike many clickbait sites.

    2. This particular satire piece is commentary on California's state-paid-travel-ban list, and thus is a proper fit for this Political News and Commentary forum.

    3. Get a freaking sense of humor! You're going to need it for the events of the coming 14 months.

    All good reasons the BB sticky is in humor rather than in politics.

    Political Commentary like the OP article of this thread should be posted under Humor if the Political Commentary happens to have been published by the Babylon Bee?

    That does not make sense.

    Itís satire as defined by BB.

    Satire is humor.

    Posting satire notin humor is misleading.

    Monitor around all you want but appearance is in the eye of the beholder and more than one person agrees BB belongs in humor.

    Commentary would not make stuff up but simply remark on the reality.
