NO one claimed that an idiot would even consider that it would
On the other hand decriminalizing it would remove the (criminal) profit of
it, and provide the opportunity to control, and generate tax and licensing
revenue. Not to mention reduce to costs of poilcing and pursuing all those
criminals making an (illegal) profit from it.

Now if you have a religious or moral objection because of your

Making it lawful doesn't solve the problem, just makes more.
That's the first correct thing you've said in this thread.
It's *NOT* going to magically eliminate the street hookers, pimps, or
children. The problem will persist because there is a market for all.
It *might* clean up the whorehouses but that's not guaranteed, either.
At least you're admitting illiteracy.
Moral, perhaps. Practical is more important, though.

Why not? Stay that is. The traditional way "off the dole" has
been to get married. But what guy in that socio-economic demographic
can compete with Uncle Sam when it comes to being a good provider? Had
a friend who was on the Dole, because the alternative was losing
custody of her child. (She had a job, but the only shift she could get
was graveyard. Tips are good, but the schedule sucks.)
Years ago I read an essay in which the author recalled how before
the expansion of the Great Society, there were parts of the country
where it was kind of accepted that sometimes boys and girls would be
boys and girls - and she'd get in the family way before she was
married. Sigh. "It happens." The traditional pattern was then that
Gramma and Grandpa would raise the kid, until one of two things
happened: the child reached age 5, or she got preggers again. At
which point the entire community would start asking "So when are you
going to get married and settle down?" Of both her, and the boy. And
he'd better man up and do the right thing, which he already knew.
But, along comes the Democrats and their Great Society, and she
can get far more from Uncle Sam than the father could ever provide.
And if Democrats ever wonder why there has been an increase of out of
wedlock births, they are just part of the reason.

I grew up with jerry-rigged or jury-rigged, depending on who said it.
Some sources say that jury-rigged is a bastardized version of jerry-rigged
with "jerry" referring to the ways the Germans were often forced to
improvise as they were losing the war and couldn't get supplies.
