Hasn't anyone heard of safe sex?? You can't get an STD or pregnant or anything but satisfaction from a toy, so why has it been determined unfit for the public?

Our government needs to learn to mind it's own business. If you look at the small things in life it's changed. We are slowly but surely loosing our right. We are no longer the free county we once were. We need a change I just wish their was a way to do it. Our government is supposed to be someone we trust but as of now 78% of the American people no longer trust our government. Because of these things in multitude we are in another recession. I run a shop www.swordsnknife.com and in the last 2 years business has dropped 50%. The first step would be to make it illegal for lobbyist to contact any person in the house or senate. This would stop some BS and make it clear to future people of office they get out of line they are gone. Not wait until their term runs out impeach them. Then and only then would our government get back to where it needs to be.

It seems like the more we fight for rights in other
countries, the more freedoms we lose in the US.
Where will they stop? It's a cancer and will continue eat until nothing is left.

People need to look after themselves.

Can the Clinton/Laurens areas support another resturant...that will have low-key live music, sometimes a d.j.,karaoke, great drinks, food from HELLS KITCHEN, and a friendly atmosphere.
Part two question is: We want a cafertia style Sunday Dinner that will be affordable to everyone catering to the grand church folks of the community.

Republican Representative Ralph Davenport of Boiling sure is depriving his wife of sexual enhancement that don't offend when purchased and used as current law is written. Now he wants the "Dildo Police" to come alive. I feel sorry for his wife, if he has one and if he doesn't I can understand.

I am a very religious individual and I haven't seen anything in my Bible (King James Version) that says anything against it use in a proper atmosphere. If you use in an inappropriate atmosphere the you and God will resolve that issue. Now, for all of my religious friends, go out into the yard and pick up a stone and be prepared to throw it! You know, there are only 10 laws to which I must answer to and the rest are man made.
