At a squat, concrete brothel on the muddy banks of the Arauca River, Gabriel Sánchez rattled off the previous jobs of the women who now sell their bodies at his establishment for $25 an hour.

“We’ve got lots of teachers, some doctors, many professional women and one petroleum engineer,” he yelled over the din of vallenato music. “All of them showed up with their degrees in hand.”

And this, THIS, is what the great feminist Paleface Lizzy Warren wants for the women of the US so she can live in her mansion.

“who has the money to pay them?”

The party elite are always much better off than the plebes in that sort of government, right down to the bitter end.

These women have gone to Colombia in search of food and jobs since socialism eliminated them back home.

Colombians have the ‘real jobs’ but it has legalized prostitution giving these women ‘work’.

Oh, I’m sure some enterprising men find money to have their fun.

“Why do they not barter for food?”

Carrying food in some places would just mark them for robbery. Cash is concealeable and can be used any time. It also can be used for things other than food.

Another successful cultural revolution.. Honestly, socialism is so dangerous that it should be labelled like cigarettes (e.g. This form of government is hazardous to your health and happiness, and can kill you).

If I have a way to help someone, they won’t have to provide sex to get my help.

They won’t have to be young and pretty, or have something else I want to get my help.

I guess there will always be people out there who are willing to capitalize on other people’s misfortune.

judgement day is coming folks

Why can’t we send Bernie and a few hundred thousand really smart, tolerant, diverse, passive College Kids and their Professors to show them how it is supposed to work?

The prepper guru Selco, who survived in a city under siege during the Bosnian conflict, said that a couple of hours with a woman could be had for a can of Spam. Doesn't sound like they would be much better off.

Well, it happens a lot. Some people can’t find a real job and go to work at the Old Gray Whore as presstitutes

There are A LOT of US Dollars floating around in Columbia... (And usually looking to be layered a few times before it is clean enough to be used.)

The savvy amoral scumbags will always seek advantage. That’s the way that the world goes ‘round.
