Real prostitution

A lot of language is being thrown around on the topic of political prostitution lately. It is, of course, metaphorical and largely hyperbolic.

The real thing is much more disturbing than anything that happens in the political arena….

    Misha Glenny talks about trafficking women in his book Mcmafia, it’s pretty horrifying stuff.

    This is very bad. Liberals and Conservatives need to put up a united front against this sick crime!

    From the article:

    One 60-ish man, a former Fortune 500–company administrator, bragged, Sergeant McKee says, that his retirement plan consisted of having sex with as many prostitutes as possible. Most of the johns were startled to learn that the girls were not acting of their own free will—75 to 80 percent of prostitutes don’t. The men believed the ads, and the legend of the Happy Hooker. Each of them also assumed they were the one exception to the rule of the repulsive customer.

    This is the psychological profile of the right winger. A delusional and willfully blind mentality.

    The right wing will never collaborate very well in eradicating this atrocity. They want to cut the taxes of the johns to enable their behavior – so many of them are the johns themselves.

    Here’s one:

    We can put a stop to this by renting some Taliban guys from Pakistan. Within a month, everyone will be wearing burkhas, all the adulterers will be stoned, and pimps hanged. All you have to do is pay these guys 200 rupees a week and pray facing Mecca 5 times a day.

    I’m surprised you liberals haven’t legalized prostitution. You’ve been screwing everyone in this state continually for years without paying them.

  6. 8

    spews:

    I talked to a couple of prostitutes. Casual conversations. I wasn’t paying them for anything. I used to encounter them in my old job. And each one of them, on their own, talked about the contempt they have for white men. They said that only black men are real men, and know how to be a man, and how to handle women. White men are soft, boring, and weak-minded, they said. The two prostitutes I spoke with admired their pimps, who they didn’t think of as their pimp, but as their boyfriend. In their mind they weren’t being abused or used.

    LD, why not legalize it?

    you believe in freedom, deregulation, the market?

    tell us how you reconcile banning sex commerce with your view of “less gummint means more freedom.”

    try to use real logic, not just cuss words, okay?

    because I bet you you will end up saying “well in this case it’s good for SOCIETY” thus proving you, too are a SOCIALIST.

    you’re on dude. take it away.

    No, just state employees who are expected to work for nothing, and King County taxpayers who are expected to support everyone else.

    In today’s Seattle Times, Ron Judd calls it like it is, saying the legislature’s Tim Eyman-inspired fiscal policies are turning Washington into “Arkansas North.”

    You were a pimp? That doesn’t surprise me.

    the same mentality is at work between the white working class in America, and conservative and republican leaders. The white worker’s who’re abused and screwed by the rich and the GOP just love the GOP and the rich! They look at D’s as weak. They don’t look at the GOP as their abuser, but as their friend and protector from the weak people, their real enemy in a harsh world. You can argue with them or show them facts till blue in the face, and they won’t change their mind as it would require them to admit

    “oh shit. I am like a total fool — I am ridiculous — I have been used.”
    It’s just too humiliating to admit you’re THAT stupid and manipulated. So you do ANYTHING to not admit it, even vote for guys attacking government or lowering tax rates for the rich, you know, the principal cause of our budget problems right now whereas under clinton we had a surplus and jobs both??

    I would bet, if you talked to 99.9% of prostitutes, and told them you wanted to “save them,” they would tell you either to pay the fuck up, or get lost.

    Legalizing prostution has had a pretty mixed record in regards to trafficked women. A lot of the legal brothels windup filled with trafficked women from eastern-block countries.

    Prove it beta boy! You can’t. Since we know more liberals are in the upper echelon, I bet this could be a flaming libtardo!

    We have real evidence of Dominique Strauss-Kahn treating hotel maids as prostitutes, but as always you make stuff up!

    LMBBAO!

    um puddy buddy, you provide proof every day. the childish rants…the faux bluster….the resentful attacks against the liberal upper echelon revealing your own insecurity is at the bottom of it all….the disjoinder of your thoughts, sliding from an attack on right wingers to a prove it response, to the unrelated assertion that “we know” (grandiosity muich?) that upper echelons are liberal which isn’t responsive and in fact supports the argument being made that lower class right wingers are tools like abused women…..your refusal to dialogue or debate…okay puddyfudgy, answer me this:

    you support legalization of prostitution don’t you?
    oh you don’t?
    on what basis, why no freedom freemarket blah blah blah there?
    oh because social good demands we ..ban and regulate this ?

    iow, you’re a socialist, too.
    there.
    qed.
    you have no principles, your mind is mush.

    The first four entries bemoan the issue.

    Then the HA databaze hateful beta, yelling lost beta arrives at post #5 and adds his special brand of leftwing libtardo loony leftist hatred to the thread.

    One of President Obama’s closest friends has been arrested in Honolulu in a prostitution sting.

    Yes here’s one! Much more recent too.

    I already posted the link loser beta boy! You can find it in your HA databaze!

    Moronic fool @ 27

    Never said anyone to the left of your beloved lower taxes all the time politicos never use the services of a prostitute.

    It’s you morons who tout your fambly values until you’re caught with your pants down practicing your true fambly values.

    I’m for freedom and liberty between consenting adults. I’m for human rights and dignity. What was described in that article was SLAVERY!

    Notice that all this going on during the height of right wing power in this country. To Bush’s credit he signed legislation that strengthened the hand of the law but to what degree was the white slave trade in this country a priority?

    Nothing like the obscenely expensive debacles in foreign lands that enriched the well-connected few at the expense of so many.

    Sure sucks to be a “fambly values” right winger!

    Jesus Fucking Christ.

    Gotta go back to Puddy @4. This isn’t just prostitution – it’s slavery – and as such something any decent human being, regardless of politics, should join in working to end. Puddy had it right at the beginning. The fact that he and YLB immediately degenerated into a pissing match about which side’s politicians have been busted more often or with more hypocrisy is entirely besides the point. Both of you have said you oppose this practice. Now rise above, quit thinking with your dicks (isn’t that what this is all about?), and just this once agree that women’s lives are more important than scoring stupid political points.

    It’s slavery and rape for profit. It goes on all over the world and those profits go to banks in places like Dubai where they are co-mingled with legitimate profits from legitimate banks and businesses.

    Just another reason why we need a little more daylight in dealing with big business and big banks.

    puddybud accused of having an outlook that shows lower class folks in usa are tools of the rich emulating their oppressors much liek women who admire their pims…and his defense is

    “Where the proof of my lower class? Links?”

    Puddybud, if you are pulling down $450K in software and living it up on the waterfront in medina, feel free to tell us. otherwise your silence as to most of the accusation is telling and your own refusal to answer it in any meaningful way constutes a default win — you admit it’s true as you don’t respond.

    now, this requires some mental understanding of common norms of debate, logic, etc. so if you don’t get it, which I don’t think you will, go back to attacking libtardos and other third grade rants that basically prove my point entirely.

    Would that include the legal brothels in Nevada? I don’t think Dennis Hof (who’s a fairly big player in Nevada’s Republican circles, BTW) would stand for that at his houses. I’ve met a few of his girls from the Bunny Ranch – away from the Ranch of course, I don’t have that kind of money – and aside from being as American as pizza and chop suey, they each struck me as pretty much normal, no more damaged than any other average American.

    Thanks Pete. The rest of the thread is the issue of the moronic yelling loser beta boy who had to hatefully politicize it. As you can see he doesn’t care about women are treated like chattel. It shows in his commentary. I bet he treats his “SEIU wife” like chattel. Notice he didn’t clean up his sick 24x7x365.25 hateful act?

    Would you wanna live in that house!
