I need some help from this community getting thoughts and forming an opinion about this. The question is whether it is inherently immoral to visit a sex worker  for sex (e.g., prostitute).
Yes, I know that it is illegal except in a few places in Nevada.
Yes, I know that it is risky and probably a bad idea.
And yes, I know that most prostitutes are in fact coerced and trafficked into their situation.
My question is- assuming that the sex worker is there of her own free will, is not coerced or trafficked, is there anything inherently wrong about it?

According to the latest CBS poll, only 26% of Americans support the Obama/Boehner tax plan, which will add $700 billion to the national debt. This is all the more remarkable given that this plan is also the official line of the GOP, the party which won 52% of votes in the last Congressional election.

Only 46% of Republicans support their own party's position on this issue. 41% of Republicans support the Democratic party's position.

11% of Republicans are to the left of the Democratic party's position. Overall, 52% of Republicans oppose Obama-Boehner.

Among independents, 64% oppose extending tax breaks for the rich. Only 25% support the Obama-Boehner consensus compromise.

The Year of Our Lord 2010. People were just sick of what was going on around him. It was so hard to stand a communism of Obama administration and a corporatist socialism of those authoritarian liberal establishment.

The two leading Corporate Health Care Socialists: President Barack Obama (born Barrack Hussein Al-Abama, Kenyatown, Kenya), and Senator John Thune (R-SD)

Not surprisingly then, it was just a right time to take our country back! So the majority of patriots formed a Tea Party to bring back an ideological sanity, purity and common sense to the GOP.

New Poll Explains Massachusetts

by papermoon

There has been up until now a lack of polls explicitly dealing with what the pundits and politicians are most curious about, which is what exactly voters were asking for in the MA-SEN.

A new Washington Post Harvard Poll shows what it was not:

* It was not a call to return to the Bush years. 63 percent of Massachusetts voters thought the country is on the wrong track, but that is still down from 83 percent in 2008.

* It was not a sign Obama has made no progress on the economy. 45 percent say they are very worried about the economy, but that is down from 55 percent in 2008.

Like many of you I saw this video of Glenn Beck in July of going completely crazy on "Kathy of Massachusetts" after she accused him of not caring about the "trillions of dollars to bail out the banks and the credit card companies."

"Get off my phone you little pinhead!" Beck screamed in self righteous anger. "I don't care... I don't care" he seethed sarcastically.

But today, I came across this piece in which last year, WHEN IT MATTERED, Beck not only supported the bailout, but he thought it wasn't enough:

"I think the bailout is the right thing do. The "REAL STORY" is the $700 billion that you're hearing about now is not only, I believe, necessary, it is also not nearly enough, and all of the weasels in Washington know it." - Glenn Beck, 9/22/08
