Science-Based Policy Means Decriminalizing Sex Work, Say Hundreds of Researchers

Social scientists ask Biden administration to embrace sex worker rights. In an open letter to President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, a group of more than 250 researchers and scientists are calling for changes to the way that this country treats sex work and those engaged in it. Most prominently, the letter—which comes in conjunction with International Sex Worker Rights Day, March 3—says that sex work ought to be decriminalized.

"We decided to launch this campaign because, for too long, policies regarding sex work have been largely evidence-free, and we saw an urgent need to intervene in the debate by re-linking scientific research with public policy," said George Washington University sociology professor Ronald Weitzer in a statement. For years, Weitzer's work has tackled questions of police abuse and shone a light on the shoddy statistics and secret agendas underlying activist efforts to rebrand all sex work as human trafficking.

Weitzer is one of four organizers of the Scientists for Sex Worker Rights campaign, along with Angela Jones of Farmingdale State College and Barb Brents and Kate Hausbeck Korgan of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. All four have doctorates in sociology and have published books and/or peer-reviewed articles on various facets of sex work and sex trafficking.

Drawing on empirical research from around the world, the letter makes the case that decriminalizing prostitution must be part of the broader criminal justice reform movement in the U.S.

"The data clearly shows that criminalizing consensual adult sexual services causes severe harms, which fall mainly on the most marginalized groups—women, people of color, transgender and non-binary workers, workers' with disabilities, and economically marginalized workers," said Jones. This criminalization "does not prevent or minimize violence or abuse ostensibly identified with human trafficking."

As we've been detailing for years here at Reason, this war on sex work not only harms people choosing to engage in prostitution but leaves little room for actually helping victims of violence and sexual exploitation.

In addition to calling on cities and states to decriminalize prostitution, Biden and Harris can demonstrate their alleged "commitment to science-driven policy" by supporting a Senate bill to study the effects of FOSTA—the 2018 law criminalizing online ads for sex work—with an eye toward FOSTA's repeal, the scientists say. Preliminary evidence suggests it has been disastrous for sex worker safety (in addition to having a chilling effect on all manner of sexuality-related content online).

Biden and Harris should also "commit to protecting the First Amendment and free speech" by opposing the bipartisan-supported Stop Internet Sexual Exploitation Act (SISEA) and Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham's EARN IT Act, states the letter.

"We have devoted our careers to the study of sex work, sexual commerce, trafficking, feminism, and law, and we are anxious to assist our nation in developing and advocating for policies that protect the rights, privacy, and autonomy of workers in the sex trade," the researchers conclude. "Doing so will promote public health and harm reduction while decreasing violence and the powerful social stigma that sex workers face every day in the United States and around the world. This is a social justice and human rights issue, and we urge you to act."

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is joining the fight against making nonprofit organizations disclose their donors. On Tuesday, the ACLU "filed an amicus brief with the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University, the Human Rights Campaign, and PEN America urging the Supreme Court to protect the privacy rights of non-profit donors across progressive and conservative organizations," the group announced in a press release.

The case, Americans for Prosperity Foundation v. Becerra, challenges California's blanket requirement for nonprofits to disclose their IRS Form 990 Schedule B documents, which identify their top donors. The groups argue that the rule violates the First Amendment right to associational privacy. Nonprofits' Schedule B forms contain the names and addresses of major donors, highly sensitive information. Although California purports to keep this information confidential, California has repeatedly failed to keep the information confidential. Recently, for example, California inadvertently published more than 1,700 Schedule B forms on a public website over a period of many years.

• Texas and Mississippi are moving to quickly end all mask mandates and lockdown orders.

• Newly confirmed Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo wants to destroy Section 230:

• A new bill proposed in Massachusetts would decriminalize prostitution and expunge the records of "marijuana and prostitution-related arrests, detentions, conviction and incarceration."

• Though a lot of folks are conveniently silent about it now, "the Biden administration has continued to use a Trump-era border policy to turn back immigrants at the border, including Haitians, much to the chagrin of advocates who point out that it effectively seals the border," Buzzfeed reports.

• The Washington Post covers Democrats' delusional economic plans.


CORRECTION: This post previously contained a statement from a Scientists for Sex Worker Rights press release about the percentage of anti-trafficking money used for arresting adult sex workers. The group now says that figure was an error, and it's been removed from this post.

  1. Social scientists ask Biden administration to embrace sex worker rights…

    …from behind and sniff their hair.

      1. That’s just creepy.

        1. You will be very happy to know that in the recent report of the NYT Newspaper, A man has earned $11000 in a month by doing simple works Online.AMsI read this report and started following him. Now I am making $10000 in a month.
          If you want to read this NYT Newspaper Report…….. JOBS APP

      2. Sexual assault of a minor at 2:20 in video.

        1. Is it still child porn if it’s produced by C-SPAN?

          1. I quit working at shoprite and now I make $65-85 per/h. How? I’m working online! My work didn’t exactly make me juy happy so I decided to take a chance on something new… after 4 years it was so hard to quit my day job but now I couldn’t be happier.

            Here’s what I do.=========> USA ONLINE JOBS

    1. I, mistakenly, briefly thought she was referring to ACTUAL scientists.

      1. Agreed – the idea this is “science” is idiotic. & note, I agree with decriminalizing sex work, but my agreement will never make it science.

    1. One day ENB will finally figure out that people think buying and selling pussy is gross and creepy.

      1. She might even think that! All she seems to be telling us is that being gross and creepy should not be a crime.

        1. You’re missing the same point she is SQRLSY.

          People think it’s gross and creepy so they WILL NEVER CARE ABOUT LEGALIZING IT and most definitely will never put any appreciable support behind such initiatives.

          1. But for some people, paying for something they think is gross and creepy adds to the thrill. Like whips and Nazi hats.

            1. Which has fuckall to do with getting enough people to get it legalized.

              1. forget it man it’s simptown

                1. Yeah that guy telling us his kink is buying pussy isn’t even relevant. It’s like he shut off his mind when his fetish got mocked.

                  1. He siad he buys pussy. His reasoning is if he simps for her then maybe ENB will sell him some.

                    1. Honest online career from home, I am making a good salary from home $7300-$9600/week , which is amazing, under a year back I was jobless in a horrible economy.CMs I thank God every day I was blessed with these instructions and now it’s my duty to pay it forward and share it with Everyone,

                    2. Honest online career from home, I am making a good salary from home $7300-$9600/week , which is amazing, under a year back I was jobless in a horrible economy.AMs I thank God every day I was blessed with these instructions and now it’s my duty to pay it forward and share it with Everyone,

                      Here is what I do..…….. Earn Pay

            2. “But for some people”

              Uh huh, “some people”

          2. I think it’s gross and creepy and I care about legalizing it.

            And, though it’s easy to forget lately, this is supposed to be a libertarian site. And a good chunk of what libertarians do is to take up relatively unpopular positions because they are the morally correct ones. Legalizing heroin and abolishing government schools are also highly unpopular positions.

            1. “I think it’s gross and creepy and I care about legalizing it.”

              No you don’t. You care about being a fart sniffing cinrmtrarian cunt. You’ve never done a fucking thing towards legalization and you’re straight up fucking lying.

              “I think it’s gross and creepy and I care about legalizing it.”

              I guess stupid lying contrarian cunts like you think “Libertarian” means “ignores reality”

              “And a good chunk of what libertarians do ”

              A good chunk of what you do is completely miss the fucking point. No one is saying she can’t or shouldn’t make her arguments. And she isn’t being told that selling cunt is unpopular.

              1. Zeb thinks “people” doesnt mean “the public at large” but actually means “Zeb” because for some reason he always posts this same ridiculous opinion as though he isn’t aware he is representative of exactly no one but him and that Libertarians are a tiny fraction of the populace. I cannot for the life of me understand why he thinks saying “this one fucking weirdo cares!” is even worth bothering with. I sometimes wonder if Zeb is a legitimate Asperger’s sufferer because it fits him to a T.

              2. “my body my choice” only applies to killing babies, per Lefty slavers

              3. What did I lie about?

                1. Well I’m convinced. Aspie for sure.

                  1. Well, better than being a giant gaping asshole who is needlessly shitty to people because you don’t like how they comment on the internet. I just don’t understand what motivates a person to behave in such an unpleasant and disgusting way.

                2. You didn’t. The Trump mean girls just like to call people liars. Often “lie” to them means “something I don’t agree with”.

                  1. You were proven to lie down thread. Lol.

                  2. And hi chipper.

      2. She bought into the Playboy Philosophy as a teen and stayed with it. Like Gillespie she never left the early nineties behind.
        She still thinks that the long gone prudes from the Moral Majority are the biggest threat to pr0n and hooking, and that the left is the home of anti-censorship on sexual matters.

        1. She is correct. All the womb police and Aborto-Freaks are conservatives.

          1. you’re not even the real Buttplug

          2. “Aborto-Freaks are conservatives”
            Conservatives support abortion? Pretty sure it’s actually the left that fancies babykilling.

      3. You’re snatch shopping in the wrong stores.

        1. You’re confusing “people” with “me”

          And why is it you think denying reality will get you anywhere?

          1. He thinks it’s the quality of the product when it’s actually the buying that grosses people out.

      4. Prepare to clutch those shining pearls cup cake, because the majority of Americans not only don’t find pussy gross and creepy. The majority of American’s believe sex work should be decriminalized.

        https://theintercept.com/2020/01/30/sex-workers-decriminalization-fosta-sesta/

        Cheer up nurse Kratchet, perhaps you can restart the temperance movement and convince people beer is gross and creepy.

    2. If they ever succeed in de-stigmatizing paying for it, women are going to be in even bigger trouble than the trannies are giving them.

      1. Well, paying for it and being a cum dumpster.

  2. “The Washington Post covers Democrats’ delusional economic plans.”

    Democratic economic “plans” — raise the minimum wage, pass Medicare for All, lift people out of poverty, “every billionaire is a policy failure,” ultra-millionaire tax, etc. Basically empty promises to trick a few poor voters into staying in the Democratic coalition.

    Democratic economic reality — extreme inequality (see California), Koch-friendly immigration policy to keep wages down and billionaire profits up, richest people on the planet rapidly gaining even more wealth.

    I call this OpenBordersLiberal-tarian’s First Law. Nowhere in American politics is there a more striking contrast between what politicians claim to stand for, and what they actually deliver.

    #VoteDemocratToHelpBillionaires

    1. With that in mind …

      In 2021 Democrats have raised the minimum wage by: $0.00 / hour

      In 2021 Reason.com benefactor Charles Koch’s net worth has increased by: $3.38 billion

      Numbers don’t lie. Democrats are objectively the pro-billionaire party.

      #InDefenseOfBillionaires

    2. Billionaires don’t do shit; it’s not like they came up with innovative ideas to problems, create companies, in order to sell us those ideas at rates we can afford!

      #RichPeopleAreTheWorstCauseTheyGotSomethingIDont

    3. OBL. Still the best one here.

      1. But almost too serious.

    4. It is kind of amazing to me that all the problems progressives claim to care most about are worst in the areas they’ve controlled since forever, and yet they still believe they’re the only people who can solve these problems. I know progressive politicians and equity hucksters are just grifters, but many of the prog rank and file actually believe they could fix every problem if only they controlled everything.

      1. They don’t solve problems, they amplify them. It is their cash cow. Take for example Seattle. They give enough money to homeless advocates to feed and shelter every homeless person in Seattle. The money goes to the liberals caring for the homeless though instead. They allow very little to actually reach the homeless.

        1. I guess what should amaze me is the total lack of shame, or maybe not considering Kamala Harris is one of their patron saints.

          1. “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” -CS Lewis

      2. I think that 2020 was the first time that a large chunk of minorities figured out that life under D rule wasn’t all that great.

        Nobody wants to be Baltimore. Or Detroit. Or New York City. Or Seattle. Or Chicago. Or San Francisco. Or Portland.

        1. Nyc, Chicago, Seattle, San Fran and Portland are better than the rural shithole most cons call home.

          1. You gross fucking pedo you admitted you’re jealous of a guy cause he fucked a 15 year old.

            1. He did do that.

  3. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is joining the fight against making nonprofit organizations disclose their donors.

    If the NRA counts as a nonprofit then a lot of attorneys are going to feel unsafe with this stance.

    1. I’m assuming they intend to be highly selective about which nonprofit organizations are to receive protection, unless as usual this is another example of progressives being unable to follow the obvious ramifications of their positions even just a few feet down the road.

    2. The NRA is sort of non-profit. 501(c)4 is there designation.

      501(c)4s are similar to 501(c)5s and 501(c)6s in that the organizations may inform the public on controversial subjects and attempt to influence legislation relevant to its program and, unlike 501(c)3 organizations, they may also participate in political campaigns and elections, as long as their primary activity is the promotion of social welfare and related to the organization’s purpose.
      The income tax exemption for 501(c)4 organizations applies to most of their operations, but income spent on political activities—generally the advocacy of a particular candidate in an election—is taxable. An “action” organization generally qualifies as a 501(c)4 organization. An “action” organization is one whose activities substantially include, or are exclusively, direct or grassroots lobbying related to advocacy for or against legislation or proposing, supporting, or opposing legislation that is related to its purpose.

      They have related lobbying organizations that clearly state donations are not tax deductible.

      1. There = their

  4. You know who I miss? The rug humper.

  5. https://twitter.com/yanisvaroufakis/status/1367005329846861824

    On the front page of the Guardian’s webpage just now. A headline straight out of Joseph McCarthy’s vocabulary, playbook and mindset. Lost for words (something that does not happen often to me!)

    1. No mention of Disney?

    2. The Guardian isn’t wrong.

      The Guardian often confuses me. Usually it’s a soft pink rag writing reassuring tripe for the wealthy, urbane, middle-class progressives who comprise the elite. A British version of Vox or the WaPo.
      But occasionally it jumps away and will write something that conflicts with the narrative.

      I’ve come to realize that the average British, Canadian and Australian paper is still a little more independent of the Davos narrative on the whole, than American ones. It’s almost impossible to click on an American paper from USA Today to the Boston Globe and see something that the DNC doesn’t want you to read.

      1. I’ve noticed that too. The portion of the American media that isn’t bought and paid for seems to be almost entirely on Substack, which ironically only works if you pay them.

        1. Not for long. Substack will be canceled soon enough.

  6. After a thousand years of “progress,” modern women have finally realized that selling their bodies is the surest path to true success and societal relevance.

    1. Capitalism at its best. No material costs, high selling price, huge demand, limited supply.

      1. Younger women. No man wants a 40 something, saggy breast, thinning hair hag with bag in box breath. Just sayin. The older women may oppose this.

        1. And, honestly, only about 30% of women under 40 (unless choosing with extreme beer goggles).

        2. That explains a lot.

        3. A fellow on YouTube was reading a survey where I believe it was across every age group of men, the average age that they found most attractive was 24. So even an 80 year old wants a 24 year old. Look out ladies – after 24 it’s all down hill.

    2. After a thousand years of “progress,” modern women have finally realized that selling their bodies is the surest path to true success and societal relevance.

      And all it took was Kamala Harris becoming VP for that realization to sink in.

      1. It took way too long for someone to post something like this. Thanks for stepping up.

    3. What about sandwiches?

      1. If you want a sandwich, and pay the going price of a sandwich. you can have a sandwich.

  7. A disturbing story out of St Louis about the courts colluding with lawyers and therapists to bleed parents dry. Judges assigned friendly GALs (court ordered guardians) who would bleed parents of tens of thousands for therapy and fees, ultimately siding with the parent who paid more. This includes cases of sitting the minors with sexual abusers and criminal parents. Included in witness statements is threats of zero custody for parents who refused to pay. Caught on video discussing the scheme.

    1. Local story.

      1. It literally is.

        Reason is not a newspaper.

        1. Every story is local to somewhere. Reason covers Asset Forfeiture cases from around the country.

        2. Reason’s not going to fuck you.

          1. Yes, they will. Ze is the Reason unpaid intern, won’t be offered a job.

          2. This made me lol.

            1. We’ll take up Trump’s speech that “laid out” the whole stolen election case again tomorrow.

              “No, no, those were Dominion ‘execs’. I’m sure of it. I read it somewhere.” Dude, if the Dominion execs only gave $1,241.15 in contribution in 96 separate donations, they need to be paid much better.

              “No, no, Trump didn’t say votes were counted on servers in foreign countries. He was just asking questions. What’s wrong with asking a question?” (“Are you still beating your wife?”)

              Pathetic.

              1. Trump didn’t say it.
              2a. Trump said it, but he was only asking a question. <– We are her.
              2b. Trump said it, but he was clearly joking. He only said it to tweak libruls.
              2c. Trump said it, but only libruls take Trump literally. <– Ken Shultz is here.
              3. Trump said it, but libruls have said similar things!
              4. You are a lefty shit! <- Sevo is here.

              1. LOL, the names of the Dominion employees that made the contributions are right in the article:

                https://thenationalpulse.com/exclusive/dominion-dem-donors/

                Let’s google their names:

                Samuel McGraw – Network Administrator at Dominion Voting Systems.
                Tomas Bellinghausen – Software Specialist at Dominion Voting Systems.

                Mother’s: “They were execs. I saw it somewhere.”

                1. We’re all familiar with your obsession; no need to continue to prove you’re a TDS-addles lefty shit.

                2. “Catherine Engelbrecht, founder of True the Vote, noted that many states commissioned a foreign company based in Spain to provide various election services — including online voting — in the 2020 presidential election.”

                  Frank Gaffney, executive chairman and founder of the Center for Security Policy… “we have 28 states — including 10 of the swing states — that have had their vote counts tabulated in Barcelona, Spain, on servers and computer systems.”

                  https://www.breitbart.com/radio/2020/11/11/catherine-engelbrecht-many-states-have-their-votes-counted-in-spain/

                  1. The Scytl misinformation was debunked in the article that I originally linked to yesterday:

                    https://reason.com/2021/03/02/americans-reject-republicans-and-democrats-in-record-numbers/#comment-8787659

                    We now know you didn’t bother to read the cites I provided.

                    “Scytl published a statement on its website (here) refuting all of the claims made in the article and social media posts: ‘Following several erroneous statements that have been published in digital and social media, Scytl would like to clarify the following […] The technologies implemented by Scytl in the US are both hosted and managed within the US, by a local subsidiary, SOE Software, based in Tampa, Florida; We do not tabulate, tally or count votes in the US; We do not have servers or offices in Frankfurt; The US army has not seized anything from Scytl in Barcelona, Frankfurt or anywhere else.'”

                  2. https://twitter.com/normative/status/1357816061480026115?s=20

                    “God help me, watching the Mike Pillow video. Giving a lot of time to Russ Ramsland talking absolute nonsense about Scytl, a Spanish company that does visual reporting of election results (which a lot of confused people apparently think means they ‘count votes’).”

                    1. Julian Sanchez? Seriously?
                      What, were Max Boot and Bill Kristol not tweeting that day?

                      Here’s some extra sand for your vagina, White Knight: Despite all the dishonest agitprop from DNC party organs you’ve posted in the last several days, and I’ve torn apart, I have confirmed that what Trump said was true.

                      Here, you can use this statement to quote me in the future, retard:
                      I have concluded that the accusations of election fraud in Trump’s speech on the matter were factual, regardless of what PoliTruk, Vox and Reuters have dishonestly claimed in their fraudulent “fact checks”.

                    2. That’s some world class gaslighting there, Mother’s Lament. I’ve shown you are wrong about the Dominion execs and the vote counting by Scytl, so you just resort to bald face lying about my having owned you in these debates.

                    3. You haven’t shown me jackshit. A PoliTruk factcheck means about as much to me as a Breitbart one would mean to you.

                    4. You are embarrassing yourself. Your Trump cronies may go along with your gaslighting, but any dispassionate observer watching us debate can clearly see you are sticking your fingers in your ears and shouting, “Nanny nanny nanny I can’t hear you.”

                      The facts in the fact check on Scytl came directly from Scytl itself. Who cares which website a fact is being reported on.

                      I clearly showed above that the Dominion employees who donated to Democratic causes were two dudes who worked in the IT department, not executives of the company as you claimed without any evidence.

                    5. Here you go. Direct statement from Scytl. No fact checking site involved:

                      https://www.scytl.com/en/fact-checking-regarding-us-elections-debunking-fake-news/

              2. OK, I didn’t totally let it go until tomorrow.

                1. No, don’t disappoint me.
                  I was waiting to milk my fat little lolcow for my daily laughs.

                  1. I’ve told her repeatedly that we’re laughing at her, not with her. She still doesn’t get it.

                    1. I get it. It’s a badge of honor.

                    2. Aww I bet you really think so too WK.

                    3. Being the butt of ridicule is a badge of honor?

                      Or is “badge of honor” another one of those phrases you don’t actually know it means?

                    4. Being on Hihns kill list was a badge of honor.

                      Being retarded is not. Sorry WK.

                    5. Damnit Jesse, why do you bring up my failures?

              3. White Knight flailing – “No, no, Trump didn’t say votes were counted on servers in foreign countries. He was just asking questions. What’s wrong with asking a question?” (“Are you still beating your wife?”)
                Pathetic.

                Do you think by some miracle nobody can read something that is plain as day?

                ““who’s in charge, who owns it, which we don’t know, where are the votes counted? Which we think are counted in foreign countries, not in the United States” Trump, January 6.

                Go fuck your hat, Wormtongue. You’re not fooling anyone.

        3. Almost everything in the Roundup is a local story you idiot.

          1. Thanks for the link Jesse.

          2. For a local story, this isn’t being reported ‘locally’.

    2. If the DDN was far off base, it would seem unlikely that the Saint Louis GALs would go to such lengths to uncover who is responsible for the reports. In fact, they admit in the secret meeting that DDN publishes information they know to be true, but their main concern is not the families who were harmed by this system but how Daily Docket News accessed the information. The GALs say in the secretly recorded meeting that they are willing to spend up to $10,000 to uncover and dox the author of DDN. Why would a large group of lawyers spend thousands of dollars identifying the author of DDN except to engage in lawfare against him or her and/or to silence, harass, and punish the author for exercising the First Amendment right to report news that is critical of them?

      Fuckers should be sent through a woodchipper.

      1. Judges first. All the judges had to recuse themselves from the case concerning the GALs.

        1. And that should make this a big story.

          EVERY judge had to recuse themselves? EVERY. SINGLE. ONE?

          This is bullshit of the highest order.

          1. Lord knows that, “Let’s not make a federal case out of this,” should be a mantra for government, but this is actually the sort of thing a Federal corruption and civil rights investigation could do a lot of good fixing. The whole thing is reminiscent of that Philly juvie judge a few years ago, who was getting kickbacks from a prison company for sentencing kids to it.

            Death by Torture is a bad road to head down, but I understand the impulse when confronted with behavior such as this.

      2. Truly evil behavior. I think stoning, by anyone screwed over by these people that wants to participate, is appropriate.

    3. EVERY judge on the circuit recused themselves in the lawsuit. That’s evidently pretty rare, which makes it sound ominous, like they are all in on it.

      But I suspect that it’s because the primary judge implicated in this scandal is the the presiding judge for the circuit, rather than that they are all potentially corrupted by this.

  8. Parler is dismissing its lawsuit against Amazon…

    You know who else gave up?

    1. Problem… Parler didn’t give up… They refiled a new suit immediately.

      1. Funny how ENB just somehow failed to mention that.

        I’m looking forward to breaking it to chemleft and White Knight after they do a little victory lap.

        1. Too late. I didn’t do a little victory lap. And now I saw JesseAz’s comment explaining that there is a new lawsuit.

          Sorry, to spoil your fun at my expense by not acting like the White Knight in your imagination.

          1. Lol. So fucking dumb.

          2. You just did.

      2. The original suit was an anti-trust action that had almost zero chance of success. The new suit claims breach of contract and defamation.

        1. I forget who it was, but someone here said this is what they should do when they filed the first suit.

          Probably White Knight because she’s thoughtful like that.

          1. You forget the details, and I do, too, but I think I was replying to JesseAz, and pointed out that he had no idea what the details of the contract between AWS and Parler are, so he should stop opining like he does.

            1. Lol. I was right you ficking retard, see new suit. You still don’t understand what unconscionable contract terms are. Hint. aws saying we can void any clause for any reason is unconscionable.

              Fucking lefty retard.

              1. OK, smart guy, what are the terms of Parler and AWS’ contract? Cite your source.

            2. Haha! I was ridiculing your shallow thinking, and you popped right up and played along. You really are clueless.

  9. Only a journalism major would think social science is anything like a real science.
    That said, people should be free to make a mess of their own lives, so long as they don’t mess up others and that they don’t have claim on resources of others to clean up their personal messes.
    You can go to hell in your own chosen way.

    1. I’m going to hell in a bucket.

      1. Rocket-sled.

      2. A wise and time-honored choice. A hand basket is also considered to be suitable.

        1. Just so you enjoy the ride.

      3. ‘But at least [you’re] enjoying the ride…’

        Not a bad album, even if it’s no American Beauty.

        1. Great video if you haven’tseenit. I’d post but Reason.

          1. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=cH7I6ibA-SM

            Nothing more 80’s… Or as one commenter noted, “AFLAC: The Early Years.” Sure gobbled up that bubbly like it was grain though.

            It looked like the boys got trapped in a Motley Crue video by mistake. The hot Dom, with kind of a Susanna Hoffs thing going on, was nice. Good recommend.

    2. “All four have doctorates in sociology…”

      LOLZ.

  10. Denmark is sending its Syrian refugees back.

    1. Do they get a full refund?

    2. And what if Syria says no?

  11. Texas and Mississippi are moving to quickly end all mask mandates and lockdown orders.

    Pin your tweets, everyone who is hoping for- er, I mean, predicting doom.

      1. Austin hardest hit.

        And this shouldn’t be a “Quick Hit”, this should be the top story. 2 of the 50 US states are restoring normal human freedom to their citizens.

        1. And Reason sees no need to applaud this.

          Libertarianism and all…

          1. Reason really needs to change the masthead from orange to blue.

  12. In a moment of lucidity, NYT reporters asks Pakistan why the Biden white house was taking credit for vaccines.

    “We wrote our first story at The New York Times about a possible partnership between Merck and [Johnson & Johnson] for manufacturing on Jan. 21,” a reporter said to Psaki during Tuesday’s press briefing.

    “My understanding is that talks between those companies have been in the works … could you help explain how it is that the Biden administration deserves credit for bringing these two together when it looks like the discussions had been under way before you guys got here?”

    Sad day when not even the NYT will peddle the administration bullshit about there being no plan in place when Trump left.

    1. I notice they won’t take the credit for the over 100,000 killed by the China virus in one month of the SleepyJoe regime.

    2. Again, Autocorrect changes Psaki to Pakistan… I’ll allow it.

      1. It probably still works, I just haven’t figured out how yet.

      2. Ah, I was trying to figure that one out.

    3. I figure they’ll attack Biden until he summits to a struggle session. He ain’t woke enough yet.

      1. That will actually be pretty entertaining, as long as Jill has to play too. Because she’s engaging in elderly abuse.

  13. Favorite story of yesterday was the consequences of the liberal narrative push of the CPAC stage being an Odin Symbol used by the Nazis. The stage was designed by Design Foundry. The owner was a big Biden supporter abd most of the staff is also liberal. They’ve been accused of designing Nazi designs and have begun to lose business. Sweet sweet victory democrats.

    1. Odin Symbol

      But Buttplug just assured us that CPAC was some sort of Xtianist revival meeting.

      The biggest problem with fifty-centing is keeping all your lies straight.

    2. Othala? Othala is a Nazi symbol?! Bahahahaha!

  14. Your regularly scheduled reminder that folks on both the left and the right have been critical of Section 230 typically for reasons that are incompatible with one another…

    Still counts as the bipartisanship that we all crave.

    1. If only there were a way to prevent all members of Congress, regardless of party, from passing laws regulating free speech or the right to petition.

  15. If they had anything, it would be all over CNN. They have nothing.

    FBI Director Christopher Wray refuses to confirm the cause of Officer Brian Sicknick’s death to Congress

  16. Wk hardest hit…

    Grassley asked Wray two simple questions: “Have you determined the exact cause of death and is there a homicide investigation?” Wray would not answer either one. Here is what he said:

    WRAY: So I will take the last part of your question first. There is an ongoing investigation into his death. I have to be careful at this stage because it’s ongoing not go get out in front of it, but I certainly understand and respect and appreciate the keen interest in what happened to him. After all, he was protecting all of you, and as soon as our information that we can appropriately share we want to be able to do that, but at the moment the investigation is still ongoing.

    GRASSLEY: So does that mean since the investigation is going on you have not determined the exact cause of the death?

    WRAY: That means we can’t yet disclose the cause of death at this stage.

    How many times has WK stated he waits for all the facts? Lol.

    1. I’m waiting for all the facts. You cannot brush off Sicknick’s death yet.

      1. Wasn’t me.

        1. Wasn’t me either.

          1. Wasn’t me.

            1. Maybe it was water?

              1. No it wasn’t me either.

                1. I got your number boy…

                    1. I prefer the Sublime cover.

                2. Did you know pepper spray causes strokes?
                  Ask the TDS-addled shit above.

                  1. Wasn’t us.

                    1. Don’t look at me!

                  2. Ask him if he realizes the Capitol police uses pepper spray in doors (against policy) right after.

                    But most deaths of pepper spray are linked through asthmatic attacks near the application of the spray, not a day and a half later.

                    1. And if you have read the coverage, it has been reported the FBI has video of a rioter spraying a chemical spray in Sicknick’s face.

                      https://www.npr.org/2021/02/26/971993022/fbi-singles-out-person-seen-on-video-spraying-capitol-police-officer-brian-sickn

                      But, hey, we already know you guys think Sicknick’s death is a big joke. Shows that all your concern for police officers and law and order is skin deep, and you only made such noises when leftist rioters were the culprits.

                    2. There you are waiting for all the facts. Like dismissing his family saying he was sprayed multiple times, not just once. Or the fact that there is no indication from anybody the spray contributed to his death. He wasn’t asthmatic based on any reports. And again, nobody who saw him medically stated his stroke was caused from chemical irritants. Once again you rush to a conclusion like the retard you are.

                    3. How much you want to bet that if anything was sprayed by a protester, it was hairspray.

                      The problem for paid shills like White Knight and their weapons narrative, is that everyone who went to Trump’s speech would have been searched and had to have passed through metal detectors. Even pepper spray couldn’t have gotten through.
                      You can see the NPR trying to dance around the problem in WK’s article.

                      If Sicknick got a whiff of pepper spray, it came from his fellow officers.

                  3. If you’d bother to look into it, yes it can:

                    https://www.healthline.com/health-news/how-tear-gas-and-pepper-spray-affect-the-body

                    “Past research also shows that inhalation of pepper spray can cause a sudden spike in blood pressure, increasing a person’s risk for stroke or heart attack.”

                    1. So can getting involved in a conflict, you pathetic piece of lefty shit. Maybe this individual should not have been there, ya think?
                      Fuck off and die. A slow, painful death.

                    2. Speaking of blood pressure, you may want to watch yours, Sevo. You’re going to stroke out during one of your anger fits.

                    3. Stress causes strokes. Stop trying to murder Sevo.

                    4. Speaking of stupid, you’d better get yours checked, or you could be the first to die of extreme stupidity!

                    5. Sudden spike equals “day and a half later?”

                    6. “Sudden spike equals “day and a half later?””

                      Hey, he died the SAME MONTH as the protest! Do I have to connect the dots for you?

                    7. Just can’t let it go, can you?

      2. You’ve never waiting for the facts this entire time. Most of us told you he wasn’t attacked by a fire extinguisher the week of the riots, that he died of the stroke. You peddled that lie for a full month, even after CNN and NYT retracted. Then you immediately switched to “well the bear spray got him!!!”

        1. Your retelling of past discussions always leave something out or distort what was actually said.

          When first shown the CNN article, I immediately admitted I was wrong. You would never do such an honorable thing as admitting when you are wrong.

          1. “…You would never do such an honorable thing as admitting when you are wrong…”

            Why is it that TDS-addled lefty shits never argue facts, but always some hypothetical they fantasize?
            Could it be that TDS-addled lefty shits are dishonest? Stupid? Both?

          2. “When first shown the CNN article, I immediately admitted I was wrong. ”

            Cite?

            1. He is lying. He had it linked to him a dozen times. And even after he admitted he was wrong he brought up the fire extinguisher again the next day.

            2. He was also linked to the family statements to the press that he died of a stroke just a day or two after jan 6th and refused to believe it. He is a partisan dumbass.

                1. Wow, you didn’t even wait until tomorrow to give me zero credit for admitting I was wrong.

                  1. You were lying then and your lying now.

                  2. “Wow, you didn’t even wait until tomorrow to give me zero credit for admitting I was wrong.”

                    “leisurely touring the Capitol building”

                    Did you see the impeachment video where a police officer was being crushed in the doors by the mob? Did you see the video of a police officer (who later died from the injuries) being hit on the head with a fire extinguisher?

                    I have proven you are lying. You did not admit you were wrong when you were first shown. You hid and denied it for several days until forced to admit ypu were wrong.

                    1. He’s going to lie and claim he didn’t see it despite it appearing in that thread and many others both before and after he posted.

                    2. Stop it, he’s dead!

                    3. Please don’t beat my lolcow to death with proof of it’s lies. It’s promised to let me milk it tomorrow:

                    4. *In Mortal Combat voice*

                      FINISH HIM!

                    5. I don’t know if this has occurred to you, but maybe just maybe I never saw Chuck P’s comment on February 10th.

                      It’s commendable how much work you just put into digging up those comments, though.

                    6. “… and after he posted.”

                      I love it. damiksec doesn’t know how “after” works.

                    7. “It’s promised to let me milk it tomorrow”

                      And then you went and repeated misinformation about Scytl that had already been debunked in the article I posted yesterday, which you obviously did not bother to read.

                    8. Yeah, I got to milk you today after all. You’re practically a free gift.

                  4. We all know you were just hiding from it for 13 days. Please stop. You’re embarrasing yourself.

                    1. “…You’re embarrasing yourself.”

                      You’re assuming enough intelligence to be embarrassed; not seeing it.
                      WK’s like turd and Tony; keep repeating a lie in the hopes repetition will somehow change it into truth.

                    2. She gets her fifty cents regardless.

          3. Yet you continue to cite articles that say shit like this:

            From your NPR citation.

            “Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick was injured while fending off the mob of Trump supporters who attacked the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. He died the following evening from his injuries.”

            1. A lot of mormons in southern idaho.

              The only good Mormon is a dead mormon.

              1. Too bad all you can do is talk shit and slink away faggot.

            2. “Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick was injured while fending off the mob of Trump supporters who attacked the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. He died the following evening from his injuries.”

              We’ll get the final report, hopefully, soon. But the sentence you wrote describes what likely happened that day. It is very unlikely he just died the next day by coincidence.

              1. Bullshit – if he were prone to strokes for a myriad of other reasons, it could be more likely to die of those reasons than of the protestors. We simply don’t have the data to make a determination yet. Only you keep acting as if we do.

                Idiot.

          4. When first shown the CNN article, I immediately admitted I was wrong.

      3. I’m waiting for all the facts.

        He is waiting for Sicknick’s death to get linked to Rittenhouse. Then he can have an opinion.

        Ching! Here’s your $.50 for posting in continued support of the ‘deadly attack’ narrative.

        1. Flag. Kill Mormons. Refresh.

          It’s bad enough you’re forcing your discredited, stupid, wrong religion on everyone Chuck, but do you have to be a Trump loving, America hating fascist?

          You need to get out of MY COUNTRY you pervert worshipping fascist.

          Mormons are scum of the goddamn earth. Their supporters and enablers are almost as bad. Anti American scumbags.

          Save America. Slaughter the mormons.

          Tell your far cunt wife hello fatty!

          1. “You need to get out of MY COUNTRY”

            Or what faggot?

            1. Didn’t your people leave the country to practice polygamy after you died? Then they abandoned it so Utah could join the union.
              Are you sore about that Joe?
              So are you team Brigham or team your son? Your son’s church barely exists now because most chose team Brigham and fuck like rabbits. At least your son’s church aren’t fascists trying to force your horseshit beliefs on everyone.

              1. Admit it SQRLSY, you just really want to taste me. This is all just sexual frustration on your part, huh.

                1. Keep thinking I’m Sqrls

                  You belong to a DISCREDITED fascist church dummy.

                    1. Including 15 year old Fanny Alger you perv.

    2. Sicknick’s body has been cremated. That destroyed evidence needed to continue the investigation. Either Wray lied when he said the investigation was not complete, or this was obstruction of justice.

  17. A new bill proposed in Massachusetts would decriminalize prostitution and expunge the records of “marijuana and prostitution-related arrests, detentions, conviction and incarceration.”

    “That’s illegal in Massachusetts.”

    1. No longer “Banned in Boston!”

  18. Though a lot of folks are conveniently silent about it now…

    Goes without saying.

  19. Decriminalizing Sex Work

    When your one-trick is covering tricks.

  20. Just last week DHS was claiming there was no emergency at the border… then Biden began reopening detainment centers, aka kids in cages. Including one shut down for being near a toxic waste site. Now smugglers are transporting large groups at sizes over 100 at a time in promises of amnesty.

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/smugglers-push-triple-digit-groups-of-families-and-kids-across-border

    Good work Joe.

    1. Saw a story yesterday about an accident just north of the border in Cali involving a Ford Expedition with 25 people in it. Yes, 25. In an SUV. About half died. They’re not sending us their best.

      I forget who said that?

  21. the Biden administration has continued to use a Trump-era border policy to turn back immigrants at the border, including Haitians, much to the chagrin of advocates who point out that it effectively seals the border…

    You’re going to have to find a way to turn them into reliable Democrat voters if you want that to change.

  22. The Washington Post covers Democrats’ delusional economic plans.

    …now.

  23. Almost 90 percent of the feds’ “trafficking prevention” budget has gone to arresting adults engaging in consensual sex work, say the researchers.

    Letting the federales focus on the easy, unnecessary arrests give taxpayers the most quantity for their extorted buck.

    1. They have to make most of their arrests for consensual sex work, because if they confined their investigations to actual sexual slavery, they would only have a few cases a year – and mostly not of forced prostitution, but of some loser kidnapping a woman or child and keeping her chained for his sole use. That has happened (Elizabeth Smart, e.g.), but the FBI has no way of even suspecting it has happened until the victim escapes.

      The only way a business model of enslaving women, raping them, and selling them publicly can work for long is if either society or the police support it.

  24. A while back, Google announced that they will no longer participate in using third party cookies to track users starting in 2022, which caused some howls in the advertising industry. Today Google doubled down big time on by announcing that they will no longer track individual users with individual identifiers across multiple sites.

    “Google plans to stop selling ads based on individuals’ browsing across multiple websites, a change that could hasten upheaval in the digital advertising industry.

    . . . .

    Instead, Google says its ad-buying tools will use new technologies it has been developing with others in what it calls a “privacy sandbox” to target ads without collecting information about individuals from multiple websites. One such technology analyzes users’ browsing habits on their own devices, and allows advertisers to target aggregated groups of users with similar interests, or “cohorts,” rather than individual users.

    . . . .

    Google’s changes come as big tech companies face multiple antitrust investigations. Smaller digital-ad companies that use cross-site tracking have accused Apple and Google of using privacy as a pretext for changes that hurt competitors.

    —-WSJ

    https://www.wsj.com/articles/google-to-stop-selling-ads-based-on-your-specific-web-browsing-11614780021?

    It should be noted that apps on your phone will still track you across multiple websites–within the app and on your phone.

    It’s interesting to note the different players on different sides, here. When Facebook, for instance, complains about Apple and Google having monopolistic like control over the apps in their app stores, and using it to hurt their competition, what he seems to be really talking about is the fear that Apple and Google will tell Facebook in the future that they won’t facilitate violating the individual privacy of the people who use their app stores anymore.

    In other words, when we’re looking to the Justice Department or the Federal Trade Commission to break Google’s ability to arbitrarily exclude competitors like Parler from their app store, we may also be carrying water for companies like Facebook, when Google is trying to stop them from ravaging our privacy.

    The legitimate purpose of libertarian government is to protect our rights, and there may be a legitimately libertarian role for antitrust in doing that. In fact, Google’s actions to protect our privacy, here, are probably intended to preempt some of the remedies that will arise as the antitrust proceedings against them come to a head.

    That being said, there are downsides to antitrust actions that need to be clearly understood, as well, and I wouldn’t put it past regulators to give companies like Facebook free reign to ravage our privacy in the name of protecting us from Google’s dominance on their app store.

    1. If there were a preview button, I’d still screw up the italics tags sometimes, but it wouldn’t happen as often. I’m just sayin’.

      1. We have to repeal 230 to fix commenting technology

  25. “FBI chief warns violent ‘domestic terrorism’ growing in US”
    […]
    “WASHINGTON (AP) — FBI Director Christopher Wray bluntly labeled the January riot at the U.S. Capitol as “domestic terrorism” Tuesday and warned of a rapidly growing threat of homegrown violent extremism that law enforcement is scrambling to confront through thousands of investigations…”
    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/fbi-chief-calls-jan-6-domestic-terrorism-defends-intel/ar-BB1e8rXk

    Not even AP can make that claim without the scare quotes.

    1. We might not have this problem if lawmakers and law enforcers weren’t so corrupt.

    2. I can’t read that without thinking of the bullshit allegations that were made by Preet Bahara.

      1. BTW, at least one thousand of those investigations are still aimed at showing that the cop’s stroke was somehow caused by one of the protestors.
        TDS-addled lefty shit tells us so!

        1. We spent a lot of time and a lot of ink talking about how Muslims get radicalized and how to prevent it. I doubt we will spend even a fraction of the effort to examine why there are so many angry Americans who are willing to resort to violence these days. “White supremacy” is a much better boogeyman than “the governed are rescinding their consent, because we suck at our job and we’ve failed at pretty much everything.”

          1. I think we’re talking about the uncanny valley. The more like us something is, the more we like it–right up until they become too much like us, and then we feel disgusted by it.

            A lot of people see the uneducated and poor mountain people of the Andes, Nepal, and Tibet as exotic, by which they mean strange but alluring. The uneducated and poor mountain people of Appalachia and the Ozarks, on the other hand, are often treated by the same people with contempt. Our fellow Americans are like us, and familiarity breeds contempt.

            I suspect it’s the same kind of thing with suburban progressives. They see fundamentalist Muslims, the street gangs of Los Angeles, and Republican conservatives in that light. Fundamentalist Muslims are exotic, the street gangs of Los Angeles are less exotic but not familiar enough to induce contempt, and they’re absolutely disgusted by Republican conservatives.

            Incidentally, I suspect this is also why a lot of people feel more compassionate about apex predators and contempt towards the humans who hunt them. I have a working hypothesis about what’s the driving force behind the uncanny valley–which has a lot to do with evolutionary processes. Regardless, it certainly isn’t about being rational. Their contempt is instinctive.

            1. Interesting. I’d never heard of that phrase.

            2. Here in the NW my liberal friends think that white Christians are idiots just for believing in god.

              Of course they would never apply the same standard to Muslim terrorists- I mean freedom fighters- cuz I guess they’re exotic or something.

              1. The liberal elite feel that their cultural hegemony is threatened by the other in their midst, just like medieval Jews in London, parvenus in 18th century Versailles or Gypsies in Romania.
                Islamists on the other hand are just a quaint abstraction.

  26. Cuomo isn’t the only blue state gov to send thousands of elderly to their deaths via C19 policy – they media is #MeToo’ing him to cover for all of those states, to not discuss it.

    1. Thus demonstrating that progs think “Creepy guy made me uncomfortable once” > “Let’s kill Grandma x20,000.”

    2. I’m sure that’s part of it. If they had to dig deep on the nursing home policy, Biden’s morbidly obese tranny HHS appointee might be seen in a bad light, and trannies are currently all saints who can’t be criticized for anything.

      1. But she was great in Pink Flamingos.

    3. I’ve been hoping that Whitless would start coming under fire for the same policy. Seems very unlikely now.

  27. Mormons are against legalizing sex works and drugs. They’d ban alcohol if given the chance.

    The only good Mormon is 16 million dead mormons.

    1. Ha! Your ineffectual pussy ass can’t do shit about it!

      1. Hey Joe ya know the Book of Abraham has been discredited. You claimed it was the same “reformed egyptian” as the book of Mormon? Well logically wouldn’t the Book of Mormon be horseshit you pulled out of your ass too?

        Chuck believes that bullshit is gospel. The stupid fuck gives 10% 9f his income to the discredited church and sends his fascist sons on missions to force that nonsense on others!

        Yet all you fascists are fine with that?

        Nazi motherfuxkers.

        1. Who knew that when you said Mormons need to be killed you meant by boring us to death with religious discourse you feckless nothing.

          1. “boring religious discourse”

            You started the religion JOSEPH SMITH. These are all your doctrines moron.

            Goddamn you mormons are fucking dumb. Yet you want everyone to embrace your nonsense.

            Nazis is what you are.

            1. I know you really want to taste me.

              1. Brigs are you pissed that in 1978 your church allowed Blacks to join the priesthood?
                I think your racist church should be destroyed, so your beef isn’t with me Brigs.

                1. Who knew when you said you were going to kill Mormons you meant by boring us to death.

                  1. With YOUR CHURCH’S doctrines.

                    You came up with them Joseph Smith.

                    I know they’re horseshit. It’s your church that forces them on people.

            1. All we can see is you still doing nothing sissy boy.

              1. So American Indians or Native Americans came from Israel joe? Why no archeological evidence then? They were once white, but aren’t now because of sin?

                      Twisting someone’s words to make it appear they were “jellous of fucking a 15 year old” is worse than fucking a 15 year old?

  31. Almost 90 percent of the feds’ “trafficking prevention” budget has gone to arresting adults engaging in consensual sex work, say the researchers.

    This is despite the fact that prostitution alone isn’t even a federal crime.

    Since the states are legalizing drugs, the feds have to get their extortion money from somewhere.

  32. Sex workers (and all who engage in sex) will be much safer once we recognize getting laid as a human right, and therefore a mandate for multiple federal and state programs to provide sex to all, regardless of gender, race, economic status, or personal hygiene. Think of the new college majors that can prepare government sex workers! Think of all the future happy endings!

    Of course, in the name of fairness and non-discrimination, a sex worker will be assigned to you based on employment targets and union rules.

  34. Hello my name is Rev kuck.
    It has been 15 days since I last clicked a sullum article

    1. And I’m gonna make sure to signal all my fellow Trump ass kissers to let them know!

      1. He really should coin an acronym. That would be effective.

        1. They’re called LACLOLS and I coined it. This is the goldurn US of A, and I can coin as many acronyms as I like, even a billion trillion.

        2. I laughed.

        3. Hey now! Not all acronyms are bad!

          Terrible and unfair maybe, but still funny.

      2. Triggered!

  35. “The whole thing smacked to me of politics, favoritism, elitism and racism,” Ken Schultz, a Manatee County resident, told CNN.

    The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office launched an investigation last week…

    Florida’s DeSantis faces criticism over Covid-19 vaccination clinics in upscale communities

    https://www.cnn.com/2021/03/02/us/desantis-florida-covid-vaccine-sites/index.html

    1. Oh well some guy thought it smacked of something

      The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office launched an investigation last week…

      A Florida sheriff’s office is investigating whether a Manatee County official broke the law when she organized a Covid-19 vaccine drive limited to two of the county’s most affluent ZIP codes.

      The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office said it has launched the investigation after a citizen watchdog filed a complaint regarding County Commissioner Vanessa Baugh, who last week admitted she chose the ZIP codes herself and also selected some people for the vaccination list, so she and others could access the Covid-19 vaccine.

      Lol you tried to make it look like they were investigating what DeSantis did Shreek and you totally fucked it up!

      AHAHAHHA YOU’RE SO FUCKING STUPID!

      1. That “scandal” was already debunked before Buttplug shit the bed with that weak effort.

        1. No no you don’t get it, Desantis must have gotten her to do it somehow!

      2. Nobody self-owns quite like our resident lefties.

  36. ALL SCIENCE BASED POLICY IS BAD!

    Science is not policy! Policy is not science!

    Science is not scientists!

    Science is not a set of facts, science is a process to weed out what is not true. And it’s a never ending process. We will never get the truth, but we can approach the truth.

    Now of course, science should inform policy. That goes without saying. But science itself cannot be policy. That just makes no sense.

    Data can help inform legislators about sex work, but data itself is not policy. The data cannot say if sex work should be legal or illegal or regulated or other. It’s neutral.

    Meaning I don’t need science to know that voluntary sex work should be legal. But science can inform the debate. The data can demonstrate that legal sex work is safe. But science itself does not provide explicit policies.

    {your nitpick of the day}

    1. Science does not speak to the goals and values that inform policy and politics.

      The logic trap is in trying to engage the rhetoric of the politicians rather than the underlying preferences of their constituents.

      People choose to criminalize and marginalize prostitutes because they don’t want their husbands using prostitutes.

      It’s not about the welfare of the prostitutes.

      1. And to limit the spread of disease. One hundred years ago five minutes with a hooker could lead to the death of you and your wife from some pretty horrible diseases.

        1. It’s a good thing we don’t live in the 1920s anymore.

          1. Yes, but penicillin wasn’t invented when hooking was banned.

    2. Science is data, interpretation of that data is opinion, not science. The left cannot understand that.

      1. Similar to how they don’t know the difference between “news” and “opinion” or “analysis”anymore.

    Amazon bans “Capitalism on a Ventilator,” a book of essays by prominent anti-imperialists. The book surveyed the role of capitalism in exacerbating the pandemic and contrasted China’s effective response with the US failure – too much for Amazon, apparently

      Just one book, just two films… How many ideas and accounts and viewpoints will Amazon have erased before we recognize the problem?

      Because we’ve got a big problem.

      New column: Without explanation, Amazon took down a popular documentary about Justice Clarence Thomas during Black History Month

        If the pipe that 83% of book sales flow through shuts off, those books will never get published. Why would a publisher take a chance on a book that
        @amazon
        won’t carry?

        It won’t.

          If Amazon decides to label conservative books “hate speech,” that’s effectively the end of conservative books. Publishers won’t bother publishing books that can’t be sold on Amazon. This is a hugely important issue. I don’t think it’s getting all the attention it deserves.

            1. Make my own, which will or won’t have antitrust laws enforced against it as long as I do what the government wants.

          2. The book is bullshit, but still:

            It was extremely obvious that begging/demanding Silicon Valley executives assert power over our political discourse – determine what’s hate speech and what isn’t, what’s true and false — would result in Jeff Bezos deciding what we can read. Congrats to all who made this happen:

            1. The left has this messianic idea that it and its “truths” are forever ascendant. That the “arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice”, which is a lovely utopian dream but also complete and utter bunk.
              They can’t imagine that all the censorship and bookburning that they’re doing can easily be turned against them.

    2. It’s available elsewhere. currently #1 on kobo

      Maybe they just ran out?

  38. The case, Americans for Prosperity Foundation v. Becerra, challenges California’s blanket requirement for nonprofits to disclose their IRS Form 990 Schedule B documents, which identify their top donors.

    Doesn’t NAACP v. Alabama already cover this?

  39. “. . . for too long, policies regarding sex work have been largely evidence-free, and we saw an urgent need to intervene in the debate . . .”

    I’m not sure how successful this tactic will be with the Biden administration, since you can say precisely the same thing about gun control.

  40. As long as there are fat, ugly, sexless wives, sex work will remain illegal.
