Comments: Taking Out the Eurotrash

So the German government decided to get into the pimping business? And the United States is constantly criticized for not being more like Europe? I guess we have such outdated bourgeois ideas such as respect for women.

Interesting. Jon's comment makes me wonder: Would men be forced to do the same? One presumes that male prostitution has also been legalized. If Hans is forced to start doing... Franz, I think this law will disappear pretty quickly.

Surely there's some sort of gender-discrimination laws in Germany, screening applicants for gender would be sexist.

The Law of Unintended Consequences once again delivers comedic gold.

Yet another illustration that human history can be summed up as folks saying, "What can it hurt?", followed sometime later by, "How was I supposed to know?"

Liam, evidently the bureaucrats knew that this was a possible outcome so it is not an "unintended" consequence.

This happens because the Euro form of socialism empowered moronic bureaucrats over the people.
