#rsrh You know: I think that I have a problem with this.

This is one time where the title says it all:

House GOP seeks to bar the use of welfare funds at strip clubs

Look, I’m not a bluenose.  But that’s MY tax money that’s funding welfare; and I can’t say that I approve of it being spent on lap dances. It… grates.

PS: If it’s such a trivial issue, then why is CAP whining about it?  Truly trivial issues simply get passed and people move on with their lives.

    The nerve of those lousy fascist RethugliKKKans, trying to abridge our Constitutional right to federally funded lap dances!

  • Ric Locke says:

    *sigh* Truly the Stupid, or at least the Non-Introspective, Party. Next time they start maundering on about the “Nanny State” or bemoaning Federal intrusion into private behavior, we’ll be reminded that the US can no longer cast tank hulls, but can deliver irony in multiton lots.

    If we’re going to have a welfare system at all, the only halfway sensible way to do it is give the folks the money and tell ’em “go for it”. Collecting evidence of waste and inappropriate use might help toward eventual elimination of the system, but trying to do it piecemeal just ups the cost and irritation factors without achieving anything useful.

    And tell me, just how frickin’ hard would it have been to send a staffer over to Marcotte’s place and a few others to collect the terminology, then cast this in terms of forbidding ‘patriarchal sexploitation’ or whatever the current vogue may be? The Democrats appear to have some grasp of tactics. Republicans sometimes seem like they have no frickin’ clue.

    If anyone is going to spend my money on lap dances, it should be me.

  • Jeff says:

    I suppose the counter argument here is that the GOP is taking hard-earned money (mostly singles) out of the wallets (G-Stings) of hard working single mothers…

    My actual opinion is that some people are just going to blow their money stupidly no matter what you do. Also, sometimes you have a right to blow a little money stupidly, irregardless of where that money came from.
