These are my links for August 9th from 07:14 to 10:04:
- Churchgoers, strippers protest one another in Coshocton County | The Columbus Dispatch – So now strippers protest a church– an interesting situation. What would you do?
- Craigslist is hub for child prostitution, allege trafficked women | Technology | The Guardian – The dirty secret of the internet is that everything that goes on in real life is magnified there. Take prostitution and craigslist: “All day, me and other girls sat with our laptops, pasting pictures and answering ads on Craigslist, he made $1,500 a night selling my body, dragging me to Los Angeles, Houston, Little Rock – and on one trip to Las Vegas in the trunk of a car,” the ad said. “Craig we write this letter so you will know from our personal experiences how Craigslist makes horrific acts like this so easy to carry out … and the men who arrange them very rich.”
- Social conservatives on steroids – “And if the Republican strategists are even halfway competent, Republican congressional and senatorial candidates should be able to ride the twin horses of the Soebarkah administration’s economic incompetence and the Defense of Marriage Amendment to a landslide victory in the fall. But then, as John McCain demonstrated so ineptly in 2008 when he rushed back to Washington to support TARP and sink his presidential campaign, one should never assume that the Republicans will play to win.” — So far, the Republicans have stayed away from this issue, though one wonders why. If people can come out in great numbers to pass gay marriage bans, you would think this would help to get more people to the polls, if there was something they could do. Not sure that there is until the Supreme Court rules, and maybe that’s what they’re waiting for.
- Marcela Hoeven Bikini Scandal? : The Other McCain – (Warning: North Dakota’s Governor’s daughter, Marcela, in a bikini at this link) Should the fact that there are photos of a Republican candidate’s daughter in a bikini be a family values question for an elected official?
- The Obama presidency increasingly resembles a modern-day Ancien Régime: extravagant and out of touch with the American people – Telegraph Blogs – We can only hope that this is true, and that President Obama will be reigned in by the coming tidal wave of libertarian/constitutionalist principles: “There is however a political revolution fast approaching Washington that is driven not by mob rule but by the power of ideas and principles, based upon the ideals of the Founding Fathers and the US Constitution. It is a distinctly conservative revolution that is sweeping America and is reflected in almost every poll ahead of this November’s mid-terms. It is based on a belief in individual liberty, limited government, and above all, political accountability from the ruling elites. The Obama administration’s mantra may well be “let them eat cake”, as it continues to gorge itself on taxpayers’ money, but it will be looking nervously over its shoulder as public unease mounts.”
