(CNN)   Two Congress-critters think if the Secret Service hired more women, they could hire less hookers. Perhaps that should be rephrased   (politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com) divider line 14

quatchi: Corvus: quatchi: To be perfectly honest I don't give a flying f*ck if these guys do fark professionals while off duty in far off lands unless there is some kind of security breach/honey trap thing going on.

How the fark would they know? You think after they have sex the hand out the agents "This will/will not be used for black mail in the future" documents.

You never know if it would be used for blackmail that's why you are not allowed to do it.

They have a morality clause built into their contracts specifically citing "No Nookie"?

You got a link to that? Curious now.


Probably not "No Nookie." More like, "No Nookie with A Prostitute the Night Before the President Arrives, But If You Do, At Least Have the Sense to Pay Her So She Doesn't Throw A Justified Fit and Get the Cops Involved When You're in A Country with Legalized Prostitution, Because Unlike American* Prostitutes, They CAN Get the Cops Involved."

Something like that. I'm sure they get special lectures on honey traps as well.

*Void in Nevada.

Yes, It's called having a security clearance. It's not a specific "clause" it's you are not allowed to do things that could have you black mailed.


So, nothing specific then?

I can see candid photos of SS agents having sex with strange women they are not married to being a concern with married SS agents, obviously, but in 2012 is "I'm gonna reveal to the world the fact that you like to fark" really something you can use to blackmail an unmarried agent?

It does need to be rephrased. If they hired more women they could hire fewer hookers.

quatchi: Hiring more women who are qualified for the job is neither revenge nor "trying to take it in the extreme in the opposite direction". It's simply addressing an imbalance. It's identifying and fixing a problem. It is, in fact, not "using race or gender as a basis for hiring" in the sense that it is not giving preference to male applicants. I'm not saying 50-50 is the ideal or should be stated goal here merely that having more women in the SS ( they do have some now, ya know) would do more to help break up the current boy's club culture that's led to this scandal. It's that simple. Speaking of simple...


You shouldn't be hiring "more women who are qualified". You should be hiring the most qualified who apply.

As long as they can fulfill all the requirements of the job, sure.
But any physical requirements shouldn't be lowered just so that women can compete for positions.

I'm reminded of a report on women trying to become firefighters and complaining about the unfairness of the physical requirements.
If you can't perform the physical tasks that the job requires, too bad. If nature deems that men are generally larger have more upper body strength and are therefore better for some very physical jobs, oh well. When we're talking about carrying people from burning buildings or acting as a human shield for the President, your concerns about gender equality become lower priorities.

It was a woman Secret Service agent that blew the whole thing open, sent the offenders home and rearranged the security detail with hours to spare.

"I can't help but keep asking this question, where are the women? We probably need to diversify the Secret Service and have more minorities and more women," Maloney, a Democrat, said.

You know, if she had only mentioned women, I might think this was a solution proposed out of genuine concern over the "prostitute problem". But when the "and minorities" is thrown in, it sounds more like someone fishing for an excuse to beat the diversity drum.

Am I the only person to whom the phrase "congress critters" is like nails on a chalkboard? I just want to cockpunch anyone that says it. Don't get me wrong, like, ooh burn! and all, you really had a great "put-down" there Cletus, but that lowly "critter" is getting the last laugh by selling our country's future to the highest bidder while you are sitting there basking in your smug sense of anti-intellectual superiority.

Corrections officer Jayme Biendl had complained repeatedly to supervisors about working alone in the chapel at the Monroe Correctional Complex. The 5-foot-3, 130-pound officer also complained that security cameras in the area didn't work.

Late Saturday, her worst fears were realized when she was found strangled in the chapel, and a microphone cord was found near her post.


what could go wrong?

baorao: quatchi: More female SS agents?

Why the fark not?

Because they are the Secret Service not the Passive Aggressive shiat-Talking Service.


You think women aren't up to the gig?

That a female SS agent would somehow take the job less seriously than the assclowns who got fired here?

This is stupid. People should be doing their job regardless of their gender.


I'd hire a hot male prostitue.

I wouldn't dicker about the prices if I were a secrete service agent.
