I live in Georgia, and I'll tell you how this got passed with a unanimous vote. Last election, the Republicans sweeped the Senate and House, but REALLY overtook the House. Then, they got a bunch of Democrats to jump the fence in the House, meaning that they pretty much dominate the house fully, with only a few straggling Democrats, who probably can be swayed. So, this is a Republican agenda. Don't worry, it wont pass the senate...too many Democrats there. And, even if it does, the minute someone gets a citation for it, or gets arrested, it will turn into a Supreme Court Case, just like when those two men got arrested for having gay sex in Texas. It will be overturned.

That's why we have checks and balances.

Basically, some politician found out that women had their genitals pierced - and he had never heard of such a thing. It shocked him so much, that he decided to ban it. It passed the house with a 160-0 vote! WHO ARE THE MORONS RUNNING THIS COUNTRY?

It's not like I love female genital piercings or anything like that, but it is a completely safe process that is enjoyable for women, and MEN DO IT TOO. Oh, but men are still allowed to do it in Georgia - that's the best part!

Between this and the whole Howard Stern debacle, I have to really question where this country is heading.

amen to that brother

That really sucks. I do not know where we are heading. Maybe because politians are not really that smart.

what policitians should is have a survey and see what the people think about the issue and have them vote on it instead of being little pricks about it

I agree with Tom 100%. What a hipocritical country, to think that "all are free and equal" when they think they have a say in every aspect of the populations life. Is it just me, or should America NOT be run by someone who was on crack till they were fourty, has a three time criminal record and can barely speak english? (That means you "W."!). I live in Canada, it is great here becuase the polititions have there shit in order (It goes; The people, then everything else!). Our government is kick ass. We have de-criminalized weed (too many people were being hassled when they used it medicinaly!) and we can pirate all the music and movies we want without any fear of being "taken down by the man!".

The Facts:
1. George W. Bush Jr. is the biggest terrorist in the world(he sends bombs over seas every day and takes out millions of innocents)

2. Canada is just allong for the ride. You guys can all go to war, we'll just chill(HA! it's funny cause were cold! but not like steriotypicly cold. it's like nice out usualy and if not we dont care because we aren't pussys.)

I agree completely. It is however not feesible. Do you realise how long the procedure of passing bills would take if that were the case.

or a quicker way of a survey could be to just do a random sample

My first post. Hey all... Well this is stupid. The law is getting way to personal by butting in the lives of people as of late. I have a prince albert I love the damn thing (women and some men love it more) I call it Lord of the Rings. I don't think much people can call their thingy that name...

Who cares if somebody seeks to do this procedure... it's not the country's bee's wax to care. I have been with a girl who had her hood pierced. It was very intresting. I gives a guy something to play. She never had an orgasm before the thing and now she gets at least two...

I can understand mutilation done to girls... but genital piercings are another thing.

No they were actually planning to imprison any piercer for 2 - 20 years for performing a piercing
However having realized their mistake, the law will make 0 references to piercing

they weren't making having a piercing illegal! They were trying to make piercing illegal. So the way to enfore it is quite simple, imprison anyone who performs a piercing on a woman. In this case for 2- 20 years. why don't people follow the links and read the story themselves? That is what is wrong with this country. Mr. FUlp is a brillant programmer and entrepeneur and web site manager. And you are also going to take his word on matters of legislation and politcs? It is vital to being ane mpowered citizen of a democracy that you keep informed, check sources.

Hey the first thing I did was to check up on any more recent news. However there has been nothing since the 25th of March.

In response to the original post I have this to say, after about twenty seconds of vigorous laughter at the absurdity of it all, what is the government doing? I mean the patriot act had some logic to it, but this is just rediculous. Outlawing female circumcisions is worth the legislation, but that usually involves hurting the woman maliciously. People who do piercings never act out of an intent to hurt the person, unless they are very, very sick. Still with all this publicity let's hope some people actually write to the governor about this. Let's see some action.

I don't know why anyone whould WANT to do that.
But if they do, why should they?

Even if it causes multipul weird desises and crap.

If they WANT to be stupid they can be! they arn't hurting others. (well maybe certain piercing could really someone innocently having sex with the person. but that's beside the point.)

The great thing about this country is you can do stupid stuff if you want!

Besides if ban everything that's a dumb idea. why start with piercing? why not credit cards, and crap like that?

Stupid.

I suggest that everyone who thinks this idea is stupid (so far every post i've read) should WRITE THE GUY!

Like so-

You'd better be careful what sort of liberties you try to repress. If you go a little too far, it'll give Dubya a good excuse to invade you guys in order to protect the freedom of the rest of the country.
