HR 140

Ridiculous.
This bill has 70% popular support on PopVox.com at the moment, which is clearly an unthoughtful, emotional population. A lot of the anti-birthright sentiment correlates with founding father worship, but the founding fathers clearly did not have American citizens for parents.

If the day comes when this bill passes, the future of the United States is looking to be pretty sad.

"Ex-SC GOP Official Calls Pelosi C-Word On Twitter, Tells TPM It Was A Joke | Election 2012" from Talking Points Memo

Ex-SC GOP Official Calls Pelosi C-Word On Twitter, Tells TPM It Was A Joke | Election 2012: @ToddKincannon: @TeresaKopec “The Crabby Cunt from the California Coast”? #NancyPelosi
@ToddKincannon: @TeresaKopec Or how about “The Botox Bitch from Buggeryland”? That seems to work for Nancy Pelosi too.
@ToddKincannon: @TeresaKopec Would you prefer Nancy the Crooked Whore? More accurate, but also more words.
He later walked one of these back, but not for the reason you might think:
@aterkel I wish I could walk back the “Nancy the Crooked Whore” thing. It’s not alliterative.

"Nancy the Crooked Whore" is more words than what?

"The H-Word: 'The Pricetag is High.'" from Bitch

Like my problem with immigration laws, my biggest problem with prostitution laws is that these laws tend to negatively impact the lives of desperate people working hard to get by. Sugar daddy dating seems like a pretty fantastic solution to the prostitution problem. The system is rough and imperfect- as the first anonymous commenter on the Bitch piece laments, "But, in my own experience, these men are just looking for a cleaner, cheaper hooker - And, they take advantage of women that are young or struggling financially to get that." However, while laws against sugar-daddy-dating would be virtually impossible to enforce, systems could easily be developed to screen out many dangerous or conniving people on both ends of these potential transactions. An online dating site, say, with a background checks that runs your subscription payments to your sugar baby. Such a system should be so much safer than the traditional outside-the-law pimping system. I'm amazed that the traditional method of prostituting is still around with this innovative line of sex work to compete with it. The full story at Bitch: The H-Word: "The Pricetag is High.":
