California Managing Sex and Drugs

Like my point of view? Then consider investing in my book The BIG Black Lie. Check it out on my website, or see the reviews at Amazon! You might miss me, when I'm gone!

Pot smoking prostitutes, pimps, drug peddlers, and other perps may soon be in heaven. There is a possibility that they can deal, toke and have sex in the streets to their heart’s delight…as long as they “earn” for the government in California.

Along with the potential to legalize marijuana, California is also reconsidering an initiative that arose in 2008 to legalize and thus tax prostitution. The world’s oldest profession is reintroduced to the world’s second oldest profession...government!

If private citizens were to do what the government is proposing, they would be called drug dealers, pimps, and prostitutes and be carted off to jail—along with the people they “service.” However, when you are dealing with the government in a Democrat stronghold, California, led by a RINO, Governator Arnold Schwarzeneggar, you get the new definition of vices of drug dealing, prostitution, and pimping: Pharmaceutical sales, Sex Therapy, and Sex Therapy Management. All for the sake of “revenue enhancement.”

I’m sure all the pimps, prostitutes, and drug dealers in America are happy to know that their professions carry new, more distinguished titles. These former outlaw professions are now considered noble enough for the government to not only sanction, but to participate in them. Read more here...

I may be off the reservation in terms of regular conservative mantra regarding this topic, but why should Alcohol and Cigarettes be taxed to the gills and pot and prostitution not be? I mean, if we are going to deem these professions and product more "noble" just because they get taxed, then aren't we retro-actively blessing booze and cancer-sticks as well?

Some may say your stance is selectively picking what things have liberty of process and which don't. Maybe its something all fiscal conservatives can re-examine?. After all, morality, is -at best-, very subjective.

As always, ... good insight and perspective.

The Black Sphere said...

@Truth - I am not here to moralize necessarily, though I have my personal feelings on the issue. It's just that what the gov't has deemed "illegal" is suddenly en vogue, when it meets their needs. That's MY point in this piece.

TRUTH-PAIN said...

On that point, we both do concur. I, like you, have my personal pangs about the topic, but also do not appreciate Government using it as a political football when there's 2 minutes left in the game and they are looking for the proverbial Hail Mary to get out of a fiscal jam.

Always appreciate your candor.

Maybe it will become a mecca for all the prostitutes and drug peddlers in our town, go west young creeps, go west. They are trying to legalize marijuana in my state also. Can't smoke cigarettes anyplace but now you can tote up in church if it helps your migraines.

Up until fifty years ago homosexuality had always been suppressed (since the fall of Rome- which didn't seem to be weakened by it). conservatives (meaning those cautious of new ideas) wished it to remain so (simply because it had not been tried in their experience). Now, after fifty years of experience hardly anyone proposes a renewal of suppression- precisely because experience has shown it unnecessary.
Drugs were legal throughout the world until the early twentieth century, and there is currently a program running in Portugal that indicates than legalization does less harm than prohibition. Prostitution has been legal (if restricted) throughout western Europe for nearly fifty years without any problems. These ideas aren't new or theoretical- they're tried and tested (albeit not in the US)
Yes its a shame that governments need pushing before they look round for better policies- but that's government for you. The less of it the better, experience tells, is the correct approach.

I don't care how much gravy you put on a turd, it will never become a Swedish Meatball. Enough said?

AskMieke said...

I think the point of Kevin's article is the hypocrisy of the government. Health, safety, morality are all put aside at their pleasure. I think Ron Paul has it right.

I desire to be more single minded when it comes to liberty and the constitution. I hope that society as it gets older could become wiser, like on the slavery issue, or woman's suffrage, but with great debate and beginning in the hearts of men.

Even when we deem something despicable or morally wrong, do we have a right to interfere in a man's choice or lifestyle? I don't think we do unless they infringe upon another's rights. I was just a kid learning the constitution, but the "inalienable rights" meant to me that they were universal to humans and given by God. Even God allows us to make choices that aren't in our best interest.

Speaking of "services"...

Internal Revenue 'Service'
U.S. Postal 'Service'
Telephone 'Service'
Cable TV 'Service'
Civil 'Service'
State, City, County & Public 'Service'
Customer 'Service'

This is not what I thought 'service' meant..But today, I overheard two farmers talking, and one of them said he had hired a bull to 'service' a few cows.

BAM!!! It all came into focus. Now I understand what all those agencies are doing to us.
You are now as enlightened as I am, Black Sphere.
You're welcome;)

aren't government and prostitution the same age? i mean, cumon, arent they the same thing?
another great rant!

If California actually goes the legalize crime route ...

I see all normal people leaving California whilst all the drug and sex dealer from around the country migrate in.

California will be one big free-for-all with gangs shooting each other is increasing numbers for control.

The extortionists (state guv) will rake off their take through their soldiers (police) and try to get back to funding everything from abortions to sex change operations to bowel movements.

This will be fun to watch as the gentile Leftist set and all the various strains of the gay communities try to live their latte lives while dogging bullets and hordes of diseased drug addicts and hookers.

Or they could simply adopt some real conservative values and cut the welfare state, cut taxes and cut the bullshit.

Okay, that's my fantasy for today.

njsoifa - Very true!

@Hello Birdy - You cracked me up!!

To AskMieke: You said; "Even when we deem something despicable or morally wrong, do we have a right to interfere in a man's choice or lifestyle?"

God gave us free will, so as far as two adults wanting to live an immoral and unnatural life-style, that is their business and their right, but they do not have the right to flaunt it in every body's face. And as for the government, state or federal legalizing perverted life-style is totally wrong on at least two levels. First, when I was a teenager, the mantra by the liberals was, "You can't legislate morality." Well, if that is so, then by the same token the government has no right to legislate immorality. Second, leaving religion out of the picture, homosexuality, besides being totally unnatural, it is a very destructive life-style. It is destructive physically, mentally, emotionally, as well as destructive to the social fabric of society and to the healthy sexual development of our children. Because of this, I believe society does have a right to interfere only to the point of placing limitations on such acts.

The Lord works in mysterious ways. . . After all the liberals, pros, dealers and every sicko looking for their services moves to the golden state, God will send a giant earthquake and the state will fall off into the ocean.
Not so much a prediction as a wish

"First, when I was a teenager, the mantra by the liberals was, "You can't legislate morality."

Which they knew was a lie when they said it. Someone back in the '80s (maybe Jerry Falwell, can't recall) said, "Make no mistake - ALL laws are the legislation of one groups morality onto everyone else." The only question is, whose in charge/whose morality we talking about?

Frank449 said...

"Even when we deem something despicable or morally wrong, do we have a right to interfere in a man's choice or lifestyle?"

Is his choice going to violate the rights and liberties of others? If so, then yes, we damn well do have that right.

My rights STOP where yours start, and vice versa.

Prohibition did not work in the 1920's regarding alcohol and it has not worked with marijuana either.

If states decided to legalize prostitution, as Nevada has, it would be regulated and much safer for the prostitutes and the johns.

These are two things that will never cease to exist. Too many tax dollars are wasted each year to combat Prostitution and marijuana use. the result is more Prostitutes and no decline in marijuana use. It is time for the fed to step out of the way and the States to invoke 10th amendment rights.

I have not been able to support much of anything that comes from California, but here they are heading in the right direction.

Government is wnat should be outlawed. not prostitution and narcotics.

If you are in the grip of erectile dysfunction, you can treat the disorder effectively by taking the anti-impotence drug Levitra in accordance with the doctor’s instructions but it is altogether a fallacy to assume that Levitra is capable of providing you immediate erections. Get in touch with the website and you would get to know that after taking Levitra, the medicine for treating erectile dysfunction, you need to be sexually stimulated to achieve erections necessary for satisfactory sexual intercourse.
