prince of peas: But your post made me realize that the press did try to connect Bush to Lynndie England when the debacle at Abu Ghraib was communicated.


The reason for that being that Secretary Rumsfeld, who served as Defense Secretary, specifically authorized torture of Iraqi detainees to get the information the Administration wanted. Its a pretty goddamn big leap to say Marines picking up hookers is the same sort of thing. The policies of the Bush Administration specifically authorized it. The policies of the Obama Adminstration do not authorize government personnel to pick up or stiff hookers, nor is cavorting with prostitutes anything like torturing Iraqi detainees.

Gyrfalcon: This just in! Men like whores!

I'm just really really having trouble being outraged about the hooker part of all this...if only you douchebags would pay the women.


Godfarkingdamnit THIS!

Newsflash! Men use hookers! Different kinds of men, that span the entire spectrum of income and power. Every last ounce of outrage should be directed at the scumbags who wouldn't pay the women and/or committed violence against them.

And maybe the families/wives of these men need to shame/divorce them. But it's a farking smokebomb, distraction, election year NON-STORY about the whores. Can we please decriminalize prostitution and get over this puritanical bullshiat in my lifetime already? I assume that it's the norm that very powerful people frequent sex workers. Why wouldn't they?

Speaking to the Jornal Nacional news programme, Romilda said she tried to hold on to the door but was dragged under the wheels.

having fallen off a motorcycle at low speed I can attest that she is one tough broad having been dragged under the wheels.
no not a bad rider. Piece of pipe from a plumbing truck under my front wheel while pulling away from a stop light.

Don't doubt she was dealing with men who said they were with the Marines. But the implied violence is suspect.

It would be humorous to find that the Marines were from some other embassy.

humorous - get it? No?

That's true and I agree. And I am a Las Vegan and have a few prostitute acquaintances.

A couple things: as demonstrated in Brazil legalizing it won't necessarily get rid of the violence. And that the women who are usually victimized are the lower streetwalker types who would not be employable (drugs, schizoid, etc) in a brothel, if it were legalized. The higher end prostitutes in the US very rarely get busted and if they do very, very rarely get convicted.

But again, I do agree if for no other reason than that I have a libertarian slant.

Except when it's legal the prostitutes can feel comfortable calling the police when they are assaulted or robbed. Now, if they call the police, chances are good the cop will just laugh and demand his own freebie BJ. It's such horseshiat that it's not legal and regulated.

jagec: spawn73: jagec: the £800 they had agreed upon.

Seems a little pricey for a third-world hooker. Wouldn't it have been cheaper to just buy random girls drinks at a bar until one of them agreed to sleep with you?

She were one of those girls that dressed up nice, had good manners, and went to official parties with you, thus the pricetag.

That makes more sense.

But why bother? It's not like the rest of the room is going to believe that you just HAPPEN to have a hot Colombian girlfriend in town that you've never mentioned before.


What we have here is a breakdown in communication! :P

It's kinda like tourists in Thailand that purchase drinks for Thai girls in discos/bars the whole, and doesn't realise that they're expected to pay them in cash afterwards. Much drama often ensues, because where the tourist comes from, the drinks themselves would be the payment.

Well, that's opening a whole 'nother can of worms. If the COPS in a given area (i.e. Brazil in this case) are themselves such whores, "enforcement" of legal prostitution amounts to nothing more than the girls having exchanged one set of pimps for another. True legal prostitution would require an actual non-corrupt government structure--you'll notice that much legal whoredom flourishes in countries where the "government" is as pure and wholesome as a frontier gold-rush town back in the day. (Thailand, Colombia, etc.) Illegal hookers in America probably have more legal rights than some of these girls.

He's the Commander-in-Chief. It's not that it's bad for Obama stateside, but overseas. They'll (foreign govs) look to him for answers.

/your world view is a little US centric


Um, no, the Right is indeed taking extra trouble and making attempts to pin all this armed servicement-using/abusing-hookers specifically on Obama. Any other year/time, this would be a non-story (which isn't to say I necessarily approve of the abuse of women- by servicemen or anyone else- but then again, we know that this isn't why the Murdoch-media is reporting it, either).

I don't think it should be bad for Obama stateside- because the connection is frankly pretty damn weak- but that isn't what your right-wing media outlets (both stateside and in other parts of the world- many Murdoch-owned) are banking on. They're looking at anything to rupture Obama's waning credibility. Problem is, even waning and ruptured as Obama might be, the Right can't seem to muster up a candidate who measures up any better than that.

I voted for Obama. I'm not a huge fan of his. I can see he's done more than a few things wrong in his run thus far, and I can definitely see potential room for improvement in the next election. It seems to me the Right wouldn't have to resort to weak crap like this if their caucus could come up with a cast of characters in which the one who came off the least like a mustache-twirling Saturday morning cartoon villain didn't end up being Mitt Romney.

In a capitalist marketplace, the guy with the best product makes the most sales. Trying to defame the other guy's product whilst having no better offering isn't thought of as a particularly effective sales pitch in most corners of that market.

There isn't a federal ban on prostitution, its quite legal inside the U.S. ... in 1 specific county in Nevada only, but there it is. The bans on it are from every state and county.

It is more likely just State Department policy to prohibit it for its employees.

In this case it pertains to the possibility that indiscretions could be used to blackmail the John. It's more for security than legality. It is why being ghey used to cost you a clearance, although I think that that has softened as more and more gheys are out of the closet now. Maybe some high clearance farker can clear that up.
