Let's get this straight. An "escort" is a woman you pay to accompany you to galas and other events (or a cheap Ford POS). The person you dry-fark in the bathroom of a seedy motel is known by one of three terms: "hooker", or "whore", or in certain instances, "your mom".

What is wondered by me is was this the problem in the past? Did the individual proceed to the library or perhaps to the Barnes and the Nobel Prize or when this was probably passed of the law Ye Olde Booking Store and put the piles of the books then do the spitting? Is this perhaps the hobby there?

I do not know what is doing at the place of Grand Rapids in the state which is Michigan but this just seems to me as the weirdest of laws although I can see the point of this. If I am trying to find the book in the library of me I do not wish for someone to do the spitting from atop the book. But it just seems as the easiest thing for they to just say OH HELLO EVERYONE NO SPITTING IN THE PUBLIC PLACE AT ALL NOT JUST FROM THE BOOKS.

Hey, Grand Rapids City Commission...

Since you've obviously got WAY to much time on your hands,...

Maybe you could go help govern Detroit.

Lord knows they could use a hand.

Sin_City_Superhero: An "escort"


Honest question: Do people actually take escorts out on dates?  I always thought that was just a cover to avoid the anti-prostitution laws. Like, the date would be 5 mins long and then you're off to do the stuff you're actually interested in.

Another archaic law bites the dust.  Saw an old sign about that once.  "Gentlemen who expect to rate are expected not to expectorate."  Hell, somebody probably passed that law simply so they could make that sign.

and in Winnipeg, within the last 7 years we have gone from having a ban on spitting only in the downtown area, to banning spitting on public property city wide..

Also, I think you can pre-pay escorts with a credit card, while a whore only takes cash or drugs in exchange for services rendered.

At least that's what I've read.

Are there penalties for early withdrawal?

Funny how they will remove these (and a couple other laws that are out dated and unenforceable, but the mayor is refusing to remove a city ordinance about firearms that directly violates state law.   Interesting.    MCL 123.1102

Based on your screen name, one can only speculate where you learned this distinction, after you'd already paid the money.

Gag me. The last thing Detroit needs is some old fashioned, Dutch, fundamentalist, right-wing conservative jerkholes making policy. I left Grand Rapids for a reason. I don't want their kind of community on my side of the state at all.

Yeah, because your modern, liberal, unionist, Democrat policies for the last 50 years have worked so wondrously well.  Detroit and environs would have gone bankrupt in the 80s if they hadn't had the political clout in Lansing to suck the rest of the state dry.  When "outstate Michigan" cut off the money supply and told you you were on your own, you crashed.

I suspect the feeling is mutual.

Sigh.

Once again, Detroit does not nor has it ever represented a "liberal" or truly Democratic government. They were ruled by corporations who left them in the lurch, and since then were governed by opportunists and con artists who slapped a "D" after their name because it was what got them elected. They do the same thing in lots of Republican areas, too. They sense corruption and they move in to take advantage.

If you want some cities that are ACTUALLY governed by liberals, look at Ann Arbor (frequently on lists of the top places to live in America), or perhaps most of the European nations that are considered the most pleasant places in the world.

I'm just so sick of this veiled racist "It's them damn liberal Blackies" comment. You know damned well the government in Detroit isn't representative of liberal or progressive ideals, and that your statement is basically an underhanded way to say "Black people can't run a city", which is just bullshiat.

There is nothing racist about calling Detroit a liberal Democrat paradise.  There has been no other party in Detroit since WW II.  Corporations didn't control Detroit, union bosses did.  Union bosses weren't black - as a matter of fact, public relations releases notwithstanding, it was difficult to tell whether union leadership was driven more by anti-black racism or misogyny.  Blacks never had the opportunity to run Detroit until liberal Democrat, union bosses had already destroyed and abandoned it. I would never suggest that blacks can't run a city - there are too many examples to the contrary.  But the race that could save Detroit from the effects of unionism when the economy crumbled as automakers were faced with foreign competition has not yet evolved.  As with so many liberal Democrat policies, blacks are the victims, not the perpetrators.

And Ann Arbor succeeds because of the massive amounts of money that come to UM.  Be it federal and state spending on the University; the massive amounts of money that flow into the UM medical complex; the huge amount of research grants; sports dollars that come in to the various university programs without those professional salaries to pay (even the football and basketball coach aren't paid what a starting NBA player earns); and the tuition and student loan dollars.  That coupled with the number of students who get to spend Mommy and Daddy's money for living expenses while not competing for jobs results in a huge influx of money without having to provide a functioning economy.  I have nothing against UM, it is a fine university, it provides a valuable service to the state and to the nation, it's medical school is among the finest in the world.  But even liberals can look successful in that environment - they never run out of other people's money.

Based on his post he didn't have the $ available to make the distinction the proper way.

Legitimate escorts may exist in the world but in Vegas the only difference in the terms is price and quality.

Most ordinances against spitting in public were because of spreading diseases, especially tuberculosis.
