I used to be referred to as Polish Engineering but that's not
Politically Correct so a group of folks who don't care had to
be chosen to take responsibility for all bizarre and stupid constructs.
White Trash is such a group of people and it may not be widely known
but February is White Trash Month and has been for many years since
it's the shortest month and WT has always gotten to short end of the
stick. The White Trash month celebrations going on at trailer parks
across the nation have been quite entertaining for the participants
this year. ^_^
It started in the '70s with that memo about it being wrong to say
something was 'Afro Engineered'. Some day, all of the rednecks will
decide they've had enough and there will be hell to pay. 'Riled-up
rednecks on a rampage! :)
They live in trailer parks, because they aren't minorities who can
get subsidized housing.
Oh I know plenty of WT on the government dole. Most people refuse to
believe that Caucasian females account for the greatest number of
welfare recipients. It used to be that they would stay on welfare until
they could get back on their feet but from what I've seen, they will now
accept it as a way of life. O_o
Fourth or even fifth generation in some families. Sad, but true. I
don't see it much anymore, but back in the '60 & '70s I did TV repair
and saw a lot of disgusting things. Did you ever run a service call in
a whorehouse? The place reeked, and everyone there looked like death
I ran TV service calls back in the 70's but here in the Bible Belt, a
whorehouse was something hidden and only available to the well-heeled
and politicians. Of course I had to bug bomb some TV sets outside the
shop to keep roaches off the bench and had to explain to a number of
folks that their cherished Sony TV should have been unplugged, hosed
out and allowed to dry after their kid spilled milk into it and brought
into the shop immediately, not a week later. My Dog, I swear I've been
a witness to "The Dumbassification of America" over the past half
century and it's getting worse. I run service calls in retail stores
and my favorite is the Ann Taylor stores where I find the funniest
things wrong with equipment. The gals working there invariably nice but
I find things unplugged or network gear with stuff piled on it as though
it were a shelf causing it to overheat or knocking the wires out. I
often have to explain to the manager that nothing should be leaned up
against the telephone backboard and the equipment closet containing any
network, phone equipment or electrical panels is not a storage space. O_o
The nastiest TV service call ever? A tube type consolethat the slobs
had tossed used diapers behind, until it blocked all of the vents and it
died. It had to be pried out of that mess, then the manufacturer of the
set had to explain to the morons that it was not covered by the
I see that in homes, as well. People used to bitch about Commodore
64 computer power supplies failing, then you find them under piles of
newspaper and other junk, instead of out where they can radiate exces
heat. There was a reason for the fins molded into the case.
Copy & enlarge the section of the NEC about clear space around
breaker boxes. It MIGHT help. A little. Oh, well. :(

I was "night security" at a cat house in Ely Nevada in the early 1970s
several nights a week..and it was clean, as were the girls..most of
whom came to work during school breaks. A noted lawyer and a rather
famous pediatrician were house girls who came to earn their tuition
money and enjoy the break from school
No heavy lifting and you get to meet new people ...
Rumor control is that is how Nancy Pelosi gained her skills at
screwing the people.

Prostitution in that part of Nevada was legal. So it was far more
"commercial" than in other places. No money spent on keeping the cops
away via bribes and whatnot. And the girls were well paid.
As a cop..Ive seen a bunch of poorly paid ladies..their pimps taking
the vast majority of their pay. Which is why it should be legalized
across the US.

I could go on. Now its your turn to advise us of what problems it
The biggest problem it will create is having a profound affect on the
society that permits it to happen openly. Some don't think that's a
problem, but it goes against the idea of family values and attitudes.
Other than that, licensed or not, brothels affect land values, tend to
attract the criminal element to wherever those brothels are centred,
(even if they are licensed). I'm sure with a little further thought, I
could think of few other contraindications.
Would it bother *you* to have a licensed brothel next door? Would it
bother you to have a licensed addiction needling sight next to where
you live? How about a licensed marijuana grow op that supplies to the
medically ill? I don't know of anybody who would say, "no it wouldn't
It's easy to say "why not", but there's *always* consequences.
