SIPA (Stop Illegal Prostitution Act)

Hit the politicians where it hurts

against]

It is a well known fact that many married politicians are unfaithful, frequenting brothels and strip clubs. So let's hit them with a new proposed piece of legislation: SIPA.

What this does is allow neighborhood watch programs, Women's Rights groups, and the ACLU to file suit to shut down any taxi cab company that delivers clients to clandestine places of vice such as strip clubs, Asian 'massage' parlors, and brothels. It also allows these organizations extra legal rights to shut down phone book companies and online search engines that have listings for suspected vice clubs or adult escort services.

       [-] for the idea but [+] for the satire.

       Is europe really better? you guys have the RIPA act to deal with. (i know that has nothing to do with piracy, but still it bothers me)
  

       Personally I prefer the peace of mind of legally purchased digital content. I think piracy would be less of an issue if the pricing was more reasonable.

The interweb has no borders, [xenny] me old mate.
  

       [21Q] forgot to mention the need to close the streets that lead to either the clients' addresses or to the "clandestine places of vice".

       Yeah, I also forgot meth labs and crack houses...

       What we really need to be concerned about isn't SOPA but ACTA, which is international. And scary.

       What we really need to be concerned about is why you keep voting for these people.

       I'd propose a ban on frivolous acronyms in legislation, but I can't think of a title that can be shortened into a catchy acronym...
Alterother, Jan 22 2012
  

       BOFA. Ban on Frivolous Acronyms.

Yes, you!

       I'd say that this is boffo... but I'd be lying.
F.U.B.A.R. maybe?
  

       I think you severely misunderstand who is the prostitute when it comes to politicians.
