This one will require mandatory HIV testing of PIMPs (Prostitution Industry Management Professionals).
This has taken things too far.Â Â It’s about time someone stand up and push for deregulation of PIMPing.Â It has gotten to the point that PIMPs are so busy filling out gov’ment paperwork and making sure they are abiding by all of the codes that they hardly have time time to concentrate on their core business–smackin’ ‘ho’s and foldin’ bank.

”As the U.S. Surgeon General said last year â€” the debate is over, the science is clear. Secondhand smoke is a serious health hazard that causes premature death and disease in children and nonsmoking adults,” said Conte.
That statement is certainly true, and I’m not contesting it.Â However, there is one small detail to this issue that proponents of smoking bans overlook–the freedom to choose. Continue reading “Do Smoking Bans Cause DUIs?”
One of the big issues surrounding the illegal immigration debate is language. Here in Tennessee, legislation has been sponsored to limit the languages of state documents to English only, and there have been other issues involving foreign language books in public school libraries. It seems to be old reliable for anti-immigration people–attack the fact that immigrants can’t/don’t/won’t speak English.

Bob Krumm on the Tennessean’s scoop reporting tactics.
I don’t understand criticism of the Tennessean for filling its pages with stories about an ignorant thug who happens to play a sport.
Sure, on the surface it seems like a ridiculous story for a major newspaper to follow, but not when you consider that they held the Gore story (a real story) without running it.
It’s what those in the big newspaper business call a “news offset”.
The Liberty Papers are painting a scary picture for our future…
Further, if things get bad, you can expect a quick increase in the level of socialism in this country. In an effort to placate both American big business and American voters, youâ€™ll see the government take over health care. As a result of the inflation government will cause, youâ€™ll quickly see them try to institute price controls and wage controls, like the 1970â€™s. All the while, theyâ€™ll blame scapegoats like outsourcing companies, while their own inflationary policies are causing the problem.
Pretty soon there won’t be anything left to socialize, then what? The whole article paints a pretty bleak picture. The ARMs, interest only loans, and baloon loans that have propped up the real estate market are some of the most worrisome. As bad as it is going to be for all those people who thought the ride would never end, it sure would be great to be sitting on a big mountain of cash.
Huh? Think professional wrestling has nothing to do with legitimate competition? Read on…
I’m proud to admit that I’m a big fan of professional wrestling. I have been since I was a kid. Back then, when I thought it was real, I was drawn in by the characters, the storylines, the drama, and the suspense. Now that I’m all grown up and I’m wise to the game, I love it for the exact same reasons. The only difference now is that I seldom watch the matches anymore. Thanks to TiVo, I’m able to forward through them in order to get to the interviews and trash-talking. As I said, the characters and the storylines are what make it great for me.

Google entering the corporate software market.Â Actually this is a step toward what I’ve predicted will happen.Â Currently, Google’s model is to host all of the information on their site.Â Some companies will have an issue with this, which is reasonable.Â
I’ve predictedÂ Google’s ultimate objective will be to sell an appliance that runs inside the corporate intranet.Â The hardware will be bought/leased from Google, and no corporate information will get past the company’s firewall.Â Google will maintain and patch the appliance from Mountain View, so users will always have the most up to date versions with the latest patches.Â This will free up IT departments to deal with other issues, like keeping Microsoft patched and secure.
The big gotcha here is that all the users need to run the software is a browser.Â Enter simplified versions of opensource OS’s that do nothing but run a browser.Â Google can take a big bite out of Microsoft, not necessarily by stealing market share, but by eliminating a large part of the office suite and operating system markets entirely.

Too bad companies can’t choose to tie their money to privately run schools that have to compete for the dollars. What a great recruiting opportunity that would be for industry.
