The Rich Do Not Have Sex

Breaking news from The Corner:
My colleague Charlie Cooke shows how easy it is to get free condoms by the handful in New York City. As he points out, these “free” condoms are, of course, paid for out of tax revenues. So, in effect, the free-condom program is a transfer of wealth from people who are not having sex to people who are. Shouldn’t it work the other way?
It makes so much sense. Had I more free time I too might while away the days stealing candy from babies.

I thought this was called prostitution.

So, er, the two wetsuit bizzo isn't sex?
I knew.

Ahh, but as usual, they overlook the big picture, preferring to focus, unsurprisingly, on the genitalia only at the expense of epidermis.

The "free" condoms are actually a stimulus (sorry) program for the latex/rubber industry, creating hundreds of jobs from Rib Designer to Reservoir Tip Molder to Quality Tester.

Keynes was RIGHT!!

keep fucking those chickens, Cornerites. Eventually all those people will realize they are better off without birth control and/or sex.

That explains it. Assholes need to get laid.

It is, at the very least, a transfer of drivel...

I will NOT be a filthbot and riff on Wiley's comment. I have TOO MUCH respect for this blog.

Wait, is he seriously pre-supposing that abstinent people are the Archie Bunkers on whom slutty welfare queens rely? Is that what I'm getting?

Can the Republicans finally figure out now why they're going to lose the coming election?

The thing is that the law, in its majestic equality, allows the rich as well as the poor to sleep with each other under bridges, to beg for sex in the streets, and to steal into each others' beds.

I would like to carve the above comment into stone somewhere. Maybe on the abutment of the bridge under which we'll be having sex.

Exactly. Which is why this discussion is happening on the Corner.

I didn't know you had a think for Monsieur McGravitas... although he does have an enticingly large forehead.

I sure as hell hope the GOP runs on an anti-sex platform this year.

So is Social Security, because those old people screw like BUNNIES.

It is refreshing to find things that one has forgotten completely.
