    They pit employees against each other to maximize performance, set financial quotas and are adapting to a rapidly changing technological landscape. That sounds like a description of corporate executives, but it also applies to the illegal sex trade, according to a study published Wednesday by the Urban Institute in Washington. "Many pimps had a business savvy, and they knew what they needed to do to maximize profits," said Meredith Dank, the study's lead author and a former commodities analyst. "They saw themselves as managers, as business owners, as entrepreneurs." The conclusions are based on interviews in eight U.S. cities. The...

    Henry Wallace’s Progressive Party of the 1940s was nothing but a tool the Communist Party USA – and by extension, the Soviet Union. Today’s Democratic Party is also heavily infiltrated by the now pro Chinese Communist Party USA and their almost as equally extreme comrades from Democratic Socialists of America. Here’s an interesting picture from the 1940s. Henry Wallace chatting with Chicago journalist and Progressive Party supporter Vernon Jarrett. It turns out that around this time Vernon Jarrett was a leader of the Chicago chapter of American Youth for Democracy – the youth wing of the Communist Party. Chicago communist...

    Entrapment n. In criminal law, the act of law enforcement officers or government agents inducing or encouraging a person to commit a crime when the potential criminal expresses a desire not to go ahead. The key to entrapment is whether the idea for the commission or encouragement of the criminal act originated with the police or government agents instead of with the "criminal. It's turning into quite the morning for NBCers to defend the left on Morning Joe . . . First, Chuck Todd flatly rejected the notion that the MSM failed to adequately report on Van Jones, suggesting coverage...

    My previous story was about an ACORN worker arrested for prostitution in Cincinnati. I thought it an interesting fluke. But what do you know, it seems that prostitutes and Obama are quite an item. Majority of Allegheny prostitutes are on the Democratic side John McCain and Barack Obama, if you're wooing a population of registered voters who are young, female and drawn to men in suits, then Allegheny County has 675 ladies ready to pull your lever. They're convicted streetwalkers, escorts and brothel babes collared in 2000 and from 2003-2006, uncovered by the Trib. Based on the prostitutes' voter registration...

    WASHINGTON — A prominent civil rights leader has told the Democratic National Committee that refusing to seat delegates from Florida and Michigan would disenfranchise both states' minority communities. In a Feb. 8 letter to DNC Chairman Howard Dean, NAACP chairman Julian Bond expressed "great concern at the prospect that million of voters in Michigan and Florida could ultimately have their votes completely discounted." Refusing to seat the states' delegations could remind voters of the "sordid history of racially discriminatory primaries," he said. The DNC penalized Michigan and Florida for moving their primaries to earlier dates in violation of party rules....

    Fourteen-year-old Cara and her 15-year-old cousin, Stacy (not their real names) walked out of their homes in Toledo, Ohio on a rainy May day in 2005 to get milkshakes. A few blocks away, a couple driving a Lincoln Continental pulled alongside the cousins and asked if they wanted a lift. Believing the man’s claim to be a schoolmate’s father, the girls stepped into the car — and entered a nightmare world of sexual slavery. The couple drove the girls to a house and locked them in. As their families frantically searched for them, the teens were sold over and over...

    Never will a presidential debate occur without at least a passing mention of “poverty” and the ideas that a politician has to fix it, which generally includes a significant expanse in federal government control. Poverty is awful, they say, but it also serves as the surest mechanism to keep our current crop of politicians in power. Who needs a government if the warm sun shined down upon us each day, and we all held well-paying jobs, drove nice cars and lived in 5000 sqft estates on the top of a hill? Who needs a government when people are happy and...

    The sentencing today of an illegal immigrant caught up in an Eastern Shore prostitution ring turned into a debate on immigration policy.Javier Merino-Torres of Mexico was sentenced to 45 months in federal prison despite a plea for leniency from his attorney, who cited the employment and social needs fulfilled by his client and others like him.“He works here because there is no work at home,” the attorney, David Bouchard of Chesapeake, told the judge.“What I’m suggesting is that we have created a monster because our economy depends on these people,” Bouchard said.He suggested that the judge deviate from sentencing guidelines...

    Rep. Mark Foley, a Florida Republican, has resigned abruptly from the House on the revelation by ABC News of “sexual” instant messages to underage male pages. The Democrats in Congress and in the media are trying to hang this albatross around the necks of Republican leaders, and Republicans generally. There is incompetent reporting, either accidental or deliberate, on this story. Foley sent e-mails to some pages that were not overtly sexual. Almost the entire press has failed to report the differences between e-mails and instant messages. Since most reporters use both methods of communications or can easily get information about...

An item that looked so sharp at first glance can lose its zing when thrown into the wrong spin cycle. And it's only when we pull it out, misshapen and ruined, that we realize last season's trendy purchase is this year's damaged goods.Take Plamegate, where the beautiful blond wife of an ambitious diplomat was unmasked as a CIA operative. Never mind the fact that Valerie Plame, Mrs. Ambassador Joe Wilson, wasn't exactly the spy who came in from the cold since...
