A follow up on circumcision

Wichita Falls, TX - Back in June of 2008 I found this guy on the side of the road in Tallahassee, FL. Under the heading of "there's something you don't see everyday" the need to stop, take a picture and hear what he had to say was overwhelming.

I wrote about it in this blog post: Circumcision causes brain damage! That post is in the top three for most comment counts. Go figure.

This morning's USA today is running a story about a ballot proposal in San Francisco that would ban circumcisions.

City elections officials confirmed Wednesday that an initiative that would ban the circumcision of males younger than 18 in San Francisco has received enough signatures to appear on the ballot. The practice would become a misdemeanor.
USA Today - Circumcision ban to appear on San Francisco ballot

Only in San Francisco…

Based on President Obama's insistence that we have to find ways to save money in healthcare a valid argument could be made for the other side of this proposal. Numerous studies from around the world show significantly lower rates of sexually transmitted diseases in circumcised males. So perhaps the government would have a vested interest making male circumcision mandatory.

Clearly the government has no place in this decision one way or the other. The thing that bothers me about this is that San Francisco is the only place in the United States where a ballot initiative like this has more then a snowball's chance in Hell of passing.


As they say around the Texas Legislature, if you can't drink their whiskey, screw their women, take their money, and vote against 'em anyway, you don't belong in office.

Consider how much better you could think with your dick if that foreskin were there! You'd be able to think thoughts you never could now; you would be like unto a GOD.

I've been accused of thinking that way.

Yee haw!

Rollicking good discussion on your blog! For, you know, a guy with brain-damage.

I appreciate the recognition being mentally limited and all.
