Hola Readers! Hope you all went out and voted yesterday. I had to do quite a bit of reading, as there were so many propositions on the ballot time around. Generally, I'm against over regulation by government. I think it's a bad idea. I know most laws are enacted with good intentions, but I don't think we need a law for everything. The problem is that people challenge common sense or try and circumvent the exsisting laws and go around the spirit of what was written. At any rate, I'm getting side tracked here. I would like to say that we are living in exciting times. Our President elect is a black man! I don't think his race had much to do with the election at all for most people, and that my friends is a good thing. Maybe our nation can finally put past pain and wrong doing behind us and move forward together as one. It's a proud moment for America, whether you voted for Obama or not, you have to be proud of our nation for taking this step. In San Francisco there was a proposal to bar the police from arresting hookers. Not exactly the same as legalized prostitution. I could see how the cops would then target the johns since they couldn't go after the hookers. If you're going to legalize prostituion, you have to do it right. Make it legal only under certain strict circumstances. Have health checks, age checks, no pimping rules, control pricing, and maybe a zoned area of activity or only allow transactions to take place indoors. Knee jerk initiatives have no place on the ballot, I wish people would think things through before they put things out there. I shouldn't say any more, this isn't a political blog after all. Have a great week everyone!
