    Thank you.

    But why stop? Does this not also show the need for legal child prostitution, and the abolition of our borders? Come! Follow the logical trail you've opened. Be careful if you do though, it seems to descend rather quickly into a Hell In Earth.
    Had it been libertarian though it would have been acceptable? In all reality, i hold those views in many ways when it comes to many vices including drugs, gambling and prostitution. But I do hold true to the moral belief that it should be for adults to decide, and I am very against the exploitation of minors. If a legal adult wants to engage in these activities it should be their right to do so, and it should be the governments responsibility to make sure that these things are as safe as possible. Prohibition in ANYTHING has been proven time and time again not to work. I love that you try to play the partisan card when in reality this is not a republican or democratic point of view, when in fact more libertarian in opinion, which is shared by both of the two main parties. I know many people on the right on this forum who would agree with me about prohibition, but you for some reason need to make it partisan because I lean left.

    I agree that these actions are despicable, as I previously stated, but as ratings have shown (fox being the most viewed), something being shown only on Fox News is ANYTHING but a news blockout

    the governments responsibility to make sure that these things are as safe as possible
    Of course, silly me, it's the government's responsibility, I forgot. They are to take care of us in all ways, at all times, in all manners, lest we have to set moral boundaries of any kind.

    You misunderstand my bent, it is not in this case partisan, but philosophic that is to say, Modern Conservatism (order,) as opposed to Modern Liberalism (chaos,) or even Libertarianism (have my cake and eat it too.)

    I disagree...I think in the case of vices, it is only the governments responsibility to make sure that the vices are regulated in a way to cause the least damage possible. An open legal market for drugs is safer than a black market run by cartels. A legal gaming casino is safer than underground gambling institutions with no regulation (indian casino's are a decent middle ground, though by no means the only solution). Legal brothels with std testing and proper protection are safer than whore houses run by pimps or madame's with no standards for testing. This has nothing to do with partisanship but with the basic truth that these things will happen regardless, and as such should be regulated, though not RUN by the federal government. To legalize such things is a far cry from saying the government will run them. Please, do tell me a time when prohibition has worked. Again, I only support these actions for legal adults. I believe that any corruption against minors is despicable and should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

    That was my thought. Yeah, IRS thing, bad, here have a smack on the wrist. The transportation of seemingly illegal individuals that are underage into the country to prostitute them seemed the the bigger deal to me.

    The IRS doesn't care if somebody is a prostitute. You don't need to lie about the work you do. They just want the taxes.

    I hear ACORN fired the two turds.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
