Oh look everyone! It's False Equivalency Man!! These two situations have nothing in common. One involves a rich guy donating money to a political cause that suppresses the rights of others. The other is a bunch of women just trying to earn a living using one of the options available to them. The strippers don't have an axe to grind, and just want to do their jobs without being harassed by stiff penised evangelicals (outside of work anyway)

I'm willing to bet that the law requiring them to register probably came from the brains of jokers like this in the first place. "If they have to register the fact that they take their clothes off for money, those harlots will think twice about stripping for money!"... Also, I don't doubt that his "desire to pray for them" might be in fact, a way to shame them into quitting their jobs lest they become publicly exposed (nyuk nyuk nyuk). Either that or he's a little perv wanting to stalk them... Honestly with the fundamentalists, it's a toss up either way.

In your haste to make a "communism" reference, you missed: In order to receive federal student aid, the law requires that most for-profit programs, regardless of credential level, and most non-degree programs at non-profit and public institutions, including community colleges, prepare students for "gainful employment in a recognized occupation"

So you either subsidize it with your taxes (a fixed amount) or you subsidize it by getting raped by the ISP (an amount that can change when the CEO farts). Also, how many of your "5+ choices" are top tier providers? If the answer is 1, then you're dealing with a monopoly. If there's only one car company that makes highway capable vehicles, and everyone else is manufacturing golf carts, then they're hardly the same thing. Even if the answer is 2, then it's a duopoly because there still won't be competition, as history shows that those circumstances lead to collusion, not competition.
