Big News Out of San Fran

Wow, this is big. It appears that next month the residents of San Francisco get to vote on a new law that would decriminalize prostitution. Interesting!


A sex worker who goes by the name of Violet
stands at a San Francisco, California, bus stop.


San Francisco would become the first major U.S. city to decriminalize prostitution if voters next month approve Proposition K, a measure that forbids local authorities from investigating, arresting or prosecuting anyone for selling sex.

The ballot question technically would not legalize prostitution, since state law still prohibits it, but the measure would eliminate the power of local law enforcement officials to go after prostitutes.

Proponents say the measure will free up $11 million the police spend each year arresting prostitutes.

I didn't realize that city was spending that kind of money arresting prostitutes. That's a ton-o-money. And could someone please explain to me why "these" woman use stupid names. Yes, I realize using their real name isn't suitable but come on. Example, "Violet" depicted here. Couldn't she use the name Jane, Julie, Sheila, Janet? Dumb!

Today, I think we should all pick "new names" for ourselves. Today, you can call me "Daisy".

Have a super day!

Well it's about time! If there is one thing in this country that needs to be decriminalized its procrastination. Seriously! I've been a procrastinator for as long as I can remember and I've my fair share of fingers pointed my way with shaming looks. I'm looking forward to the day I can hold my head high and proclaim "I'm a procrastinator"

Let's hear it for legal procrastination!!!!

That's an interesting thing. It may save the city money but men across that city are going to be going bankrupt!

Well, I gotta tell you -- I think that's just fine. Seriously. It's not illegal in Paris. Everyone knows where that area is located and they keep to themselves. Everyone knows that if you want a disease -- then that's the place to get it.

And I think my married name works fine, Lacy Razor. LOL!

Blessings!

Rhea said...

I think it's a smart idea to decriminalize it. Free up money for other things.

Just call me Cash Cow.

Just kidding, I choose that name because I saw it's a buzz word you didn't like. lol I'm silly like that.
