Craigslist Prostitutes Viciously Assaulted, Robbed in Manhattan Hotels

Craigslist Prostitutes Viciously Assaulted, Robbed in Manhattan Hotels

“The illegality of sex between consenting adults is about as big and intrusive government as you can get. I say this as a liberal.”

ThoughtThrough on May 7, 2011 at 19:12:40

“The idea of paid sex between "consenting adults” is more accurately described as consent between a john, and a pimp.
There is no point in pretending that women are not forced onto craigslist just as often as they are forced onto the corner.
We cannot expect legal protections, or even self sovereignty and ignore that sex trafficking is supporting the largest slave trade the world has seen in recorded history
Who will we be helping by rationalizing to ourselves....."well its their choice, and right"
It seems self serving in light of the reality of human trafficking.”

“I completely respect this decision. The downsides of this are very real. Terrorists don't need more propaganda materials, we ourselves don't need t-shirts and such plastered with death. The only purpose I could think of to release the photo's would be to satisfy fringe elements who doubt his death. There's no need whatsoever to cater to those people.”

“Seth Meyers coined that, and I don't agree with you. Jon does both clapter and laughter, the latter in segments, the former in interviews.”

“Oh, my mistake. Still, I didn't mean necessarily all the time does Jon get more clapter than laughter, just that I think I find Stephen funnier sometimes and less bent on making a political point. But then again, it's often reversed.”

“The woman should not have called them animals, and the girls should not have proved her right.”

sistahfriend on Mar 20, 2011 at 21:47:13

“The woman stood up and got in her face, then she pushed her.

The woman should of never said something, then after she did and saw the young women not backing down, she should of shut up.

When my daughter was in the 6th grade there was a woman who was out of line with her and a few of her friends, as they were walking home. The woman hit one of the girls and all of them jumped her.

As an adult, we are not suppose to get ourselves caught up in this type of craziness. That's why young people don't respect us.”

“Simple. To get favorable poll numbers for the issues I mentioned, you simply have to explain the choices to people in clear terms; honestly explain the dilemma. People vote back and forth between D's and R's (2008 for D's, 2010 for R's) because they hear policy described in distorted half-truths propagated for partisan gain. If you boil it down to the cold, hard facts (i.e. "do you want public investment in jobs programs or spending cuts to balance the budget?") you will no doubt find this is a progressive country. You also have to take into consideration that certain words were made "dirty" by the Republicans, such as the word "liberal".”

“What cowards, the Democratic establishment. I love Sanders and Kucinich, but beyond long floor speeches and go-nowhere bills that appease the base, what good are they? At this point, a primary challenge from the left seems to be the ONLY way we'll get what we want. Either by pushing Obama back to the left or replacing him altogether. Guys like Kucinich, Dean, etc. seemed eager to run after Bush's policies screwed up the country. Why not after Obama, considering the fact that he continued a great many of those policies? Cowards, I tell you.”

gfs5541 on Feb 25, 2011 at 16:02:54

“No, he's just calling out Assange that's all. Wikileaks edited the footage. Show me a good video editor and I show you someone that can make soldiers look like murderers.”

“"disappointing"

Yes. I don't watch Colbert any more because he was too good at being right wing.

Not funny.”

Inquisitr on Feb 25, 2011 at 12:06:11

“It's not really jingoism. Wikileaks did in fact edit the footage. Not in any truly meaningful way after viewing the unedited footage myself, but it did, and Colbert is right to point that out.

He's also right to point out that Wikileaks has a political agenda. I happen to agree with that agenda right now, but it is important to say they are doing it for political purposes.

He did seem a tad taken aback at the whole thing, which is odd for Colbert, but I wouldn't come close to calling it jingoism.”
