    Reid Calls on Nevada Legislature to 'Outlaw' Prostitution
    Published February 22, 2011 | FoxNews.com

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, urging Nevada to have an "adult conversation about an adult subject," called on his home state Tuesday to abolish legalized prostitution.

    The Nevada Democrat issued the call during a speech to the state Legislature. Anticipating the challenge to their livelihood, brothel owners and prostitutes traveled to Carson City in advance to attend the address.

    Reid cast his plea Tuesday as an economic decision, suggesting major businesses will not invest in the struggling state as long as it's the last holdout where prostitution is legal.

    "When the nation thinks about Nevada, it should think about the world's newest ideas and newest careers, not about its oldest profession," Reid said. "If we want to attract business to Nevada that puts people back to work, the time has come to outlaw prostitution."

    A Democrat that's not promoting whores, what is next anti sodomy?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Reid, trying to take more jobs away from his state.

    Seriously, when people think of Nevada, they instantly think of Vegas. Not the Kitty Cat Ranch, or whatever the hell that place is called.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    It's something to do with poultry.

    Nah, it's one of the legal brothels in the state. HBO did a "reality" show about it.

    When I read this article, what flashed in my mind was Hairy signing
    "how do ya like me now!" to all those idiots in NV who voted for him.
    Next he will be wanting to outlaw gambling for them.

    Reid could find himself in handcuffs if he gets his wish and Nevada whores are made illegal.

    Outlawing prostitution hasn't worked anywhere else. Look at the whores to the insurance industry and how they refused to include a public option.

    I guess Reid does not like the competition.
    Only the government should get paid for the pleasure of screwing us.

    Maybe Harry should run for State Legislature. That is, after, all the body of lawmakers who are responsible for governing the State.

    Speaking as a resident of Mississippi, I think Harry should leave Nevada alone. Nevada is one of only a handful of states who manages to graduate less of its high school students than Mississippi. We enjoy the insulation the Nevada provides, which insures that Mississippi will not be roasted in hell for being at the bottom of every conceivable measure of educational success. Yea, Nevada!:D
