The Selling of Sex Flips Left and Right

Writing at Dean's World, Scott Kirwin notes how when it comes to businesses selling products through sexual-based marketing, both conservatives and liberals change their principles. I don't agree with everything in the post, but he's right to note that liberals seem to want virtually no restrictions on sex-related businesses (condoms, birth-control, abortion, porn) while wanting to control the entire medical industry and that conservatives like minimal regulation of everything except sex-related businesses. Thankfully, most Americans want some amount of both. Sadly, they don't seem to be coming around to my desire to abolish the income tax.
