    Perhaps if you got off the fence?

    I'm not on any fence. In other threads people keep telling me I'm too hardline about my beliefs, and now I'm being accused of being a fence sitter.

    My opinion is that you're the fence sitter with regards to personal responsibility. When it comes to guns, you think it's a matter of personal responsibility for how they are used, but when it's a bunch of dried out herbs or a vagina, you don't think people should be trusted to use them responsibly.

    Stop fence sitting, either we hold people responsible for their actions, or we blame the objects they use, you can't have it both ways
    If you hate capitalism so much, then just write everything in lower case. Problem solved.

    It's people like you who gave Congress back to the Republicans, but then turned around and gave President Barack Hussein 4 more years. Fence, meet HumanBeing.

    Your problem is that you think drug use/prostitution and self defense are on equal footing. You're one half Liberal, one half Conservative, and 100% frustrating. Welcome to the fence.

    Stop pointing your finger and get off the fence. We either hold people responsible for their actions (Conservative) or we blame everything on everything else (liberal).

    Wow, and I managed all that without ever having set foot in America, and despite my opposition to electoral politics? Maybe I was stoned when it happened, but I don't remember doing any of that stuff. (and in case you're interested, I would never have voted for Bush or Obama. I would have been tempted by Ron Paul but I think he's a hypocrite so still probably wouldn't have voted).

    I'm not one half anything, i'm 100% pro personal responsibility. Guns can take lives or save lives, vaginas can make lives or money, and weed can make lives better or worse depending on the person and how it's used.

    I'm just not into blaming inanimate objects for the actions of people who use them, whether the objects be guns or weed. It isn't my place to tell you what you can or can't use to defend yourself with in your own home, nor is it my place to tell you what dried herbs you can or can't smoke in your own home.

    Waitwut? I thought you only wanted me to hold people accountable for shooting each other. With weed it's all the fault of the inanimate object, so we have to ban it. No?

    What shape is this damn fence anyway? It seems all curvy and inconsistent.

    Still completely wrong. We're extremely progressive in comparison to the rest of the world. The only countries less conservative than us are europe, australia, and a few other exceptions.

    And if we're so conservative, why do we have the highest divorce rate in the world? Just looking at the data, you'd think prostitution in a country actually strengthens marriages. It's the exact opposite of what some of you are claiming.

    Men who use prostitutes should be ashamed of themselves..
    Assault is and should be illegal. Totally different topic.

    Yes, and well regulated too with tax inspectors and health standard requirements.

    And hopefully, this will cause some of the violence against prostitutes to diminish and offer a safer work environment, under the coverage of the law.

    There's also girls (and boys) who go whoring around for free. Maybe we should pass laws on casual sex?

    Re: Should prostitution be legal?

    From: Ain't Nobody's Business if You Do: The Absurdity of Consensual Crimes in a Free Society

    THIS BOOK IS BASED on a single idea: You should be allowed to do whatever you want with your own person and property, as long as you don't physically harm the person or property of a nonconsenting other.

    Simple. Seemingly guaranteed to us by that remarkable document known as United States Constitution and its even more remarkable Bill of Rights. And yet, it's not the way things are.

    Roughly half of the arrests and court cases in the United States each year involve consensual crimes—actions that are against the law, but directly harm no one's person or property except, possibly, the "criminal's."

    More than 750,000 people are in jail right now because of something they did, something that did not physically harm the person or property of another. In addition, more than 3,000,000 people are on parole or probation for consensual crimes. Further, more than 4,000,000 people are arrested each year for doing something that hurts no one but, potentially, themselves.

    The injustice doesn't end there, of course. Throwing people in jail is the extreme. If you can throw people in jail for something, you can fire them for the same reason. You can evict them from their apartments. You can deny them credit. You can expel them from schools. You can strip away their civil rights, confiscate their property, and destroy their lives—just because they're different.

    At what point does behavior become so unacceptable that we should tell our government to lock people up? The answer, as explored in this book: We lock people up only when they physically harm the person or property of a nonconsenting other.
