More politicking on this election cycle

2008-10-27 15:35:34.14006+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

My car died on Friday, and on the tow into the shop the guy in the truck was listening to a talk radio program discussing San Francisco's Proposition K, which would legalize prostitution. One of the "against" arguments was from someone who self-identified as a stripper, who complained about what this would do to her job.

I think this totally nails the anti-prostitution argument. Whether the competition is to marriage or to strippers, anti-prostitution rules are about removing choice and engaging in protectionism.

The stripper wouldn't lose her job. It might expand her job description though...

I forwarded the link to the German bordellos to a German friend. He thought it was funny - not the bordellos - but the American attitudes towards prostitution.
