    Here, let me say it once again.

    I have worked in the Adult Entertainment Industry!

    I myself have nothing against prostitution. I think it should be legal. However, it should be restricted and regulated as well. I would not want hookers walking up and down my block, no more then I would want a strip club or an adult book store on the corner.

    *shakes head - wondering why some in here are seeing restrictions on such transactions as a violation of their Civil Rights*

    You dont have to bother, that response came before your links.

    I dont particularly care, this isnt an issue for me. You may carry on with someone else.

    mantra for so called "victimless crimes"

    tax it / regulate it / keep it away from minors. Off the top of my head, can't think of which doesn't fit into this criteria.

    So...can you please answer the question, as the article did not.
    Then you are obviously playing a game. You know exactly what was being talked about.
    So stop your game.
    It was a further erosion of decency standards.

    Hookers....

    Damn Canadians forgot the blow.

    You were almost out of the doghouse, you're hereby declared as America's hair. You have been upgraded from the level of America's hat. Congratulations.

    If you make the blow legal, and lose the silly gun laws....you are officially America's over the top high five. Best buddies. Brahs for life. BFFL. Ride or die.

    Oh what's your countries motto?
    Oh, yeah, it's no big deal but...we are basically the best high five in the western world.

    I asked you a very clear and courteous question. A few times, as have others.

    There's no game. I do not know what "you" are thinking. And there's no basis to your pat answer of 'erosion of decency standards' which you cannot even describe.

    You are unable to answer it.

    Yes you are playing a game.
    You know damn well what standards of decency were being discussed.
    And that the Courts decision is a further erosion of those standards.

    They were not listed in the article. I went back and looked...at your request. I have no idea what you are talking about and since you cannot describe them, you must be full of BS.

    You know what standards of decency are. You know they were further eroded by this decision.

    So go play your stupid game elsewhere.
