    It is, by most people's definition, prostitution.

    Except that it is not. If it were prostitution, then the sex would be guaranteed, as it would be the service that business is providing. The business however does not provide that as a service, they essentially provide an introduction to these girls, it's up to the girls if/what they want to do it.

    They string the guy along before giving in to get him to spend more. At some point they all felt obligated to sleep with a guy after he has spent enough time and money. Not sleeping after a certain point would cause problems. He might never come back to the club.

    Which is no different than dating. If a girl doesn't sleep with a guy she's dating, at some point he's going to get bored and leave. He may never talk to her again.

    Is dating prostitution?

    but Democrats people got it really easy because the MSM supports them and paint this beautiful picture for them

    Are we watching a different Fox News from each other? I've never seen Fox support the democrats or paint a rosy picture of them.

    I think "the swamp" is a metaphor for "official Washington".

    Why would it be that? Trump was appealing to the regular man, who felt cheated by the higher ups who were stacking the system against them. It's naive to think that is only official washington folk, as anyone who is part of the status quo was causing that. Filling the swamp with CEOs is just a different type of swamp. It's water in which alligators have been crapping, rather than crocodiles.

    I've come to realize, the lefties here just don't know what real leadership looks like. They've had no problem with Obama and Hillary being the top weapons sales person year after year. As long as they hear about LBGT or whatever, they're content. No problem with Obama inflicting death and misery upon thousands, as long as they hear about Hope and Change. What a conflicted mind you lefties must have.

    Why do you think this is a left/right thing? Do you not remember Bush starting a war in Iraq that ended up with death and misery of hundreds of thousands (some say millions)?

    It's hardly a political spectrum issue. It's an American issue.

    Oh yes they are - a friend of my cousin (female) used to work in one she and most of the other girls that worked there were sleeping with customers when the money was right

    As you say - when the money was right. They decided when they wanted to do it

    A place of prostitution is a place where you walk in, pay money, and get sexual services. In a hostess bar, you pay for the chance to talk to a woman and have her treat you nice. There is no guarantee of sex, and the money you pay is not for sex. Therefore it's not a place of prostitution.

    If you redefine prostitution to be the payment for the potential to have sex, then all dating is freelance prostitution, which in turn means pretty much every woman is a prostitute, and pretty much every man is a user of prostitutes.

    Media regulars are all exited what the first lady will be wearing.

    And afterwards, they can go online and she what she looks like when it's off.

    Again, as I have asked others before, I will also ask Katsu78: given that you are not impressed with Trump's cabinet selections, who do YOU think would be better? It's easy to throw stones from the sidelines, but get into the game!

    Anyone who would have not filled the swamp back up would have been better. When it comes down to it, the outgoing administration is out. At that point the 'swamp' was 'drained'. Trump then filled it back up with even swampier guys than there were originally. We aren't the ones chanting about draining the swamp, he was. So it's not who we think he should have put it, it's who he did put in.

    And before you get all frustrated with no concrete reply from on who would have been btter, remember how the past eight years the right complained about Obamacare, but never came up with a concrete substitute?

    Also, why stay at a cheap hotel if there isn't porn on the telly?

    In the age of smartphones, we all have porn in our pockets.

    These protesters are just protesting democracy itself.

    Protest is a right of democracy. So your comment is itself a protest of democracy.

    We live in interesting times.

    Implicit in that exchange of money is the expectation of sex.

    That expectation is there when taking a regular girl on a date, but it's not promised, nor guaranteed. It's up to the girl. Same as a hostess bar.

    there is no explanation to it, except demography fall.

    Suicides have fallen about 25% since 2010, but the demography has not fallen nearly that much, so that explanation isn't so likely.

    However, the government has been focusing a lot of resources on the suicide problem for years now, and their efforts seem to be paying off.

    The more expensive hostess bars (table charge of 20,000 and up), sleeping with the customers is strongly encouraged.

    It's not that it's encouraged, it's almost like dating of a sort. These girls know that if they just sleep with the guy, he's not going to come back and be a customer again. But if they put him off indefinitely, he's going to get bored, and go somewhere else anyways. The girls who are the best know where to walk the line, and sleep with the guy. They do it of their own volition, to get the most out of their customer.

    I noticed it - it was word-for-word the same thing in this article.

    But it still proved my point.

    No I think my point made itself. Fox is MSM.

    Friggen MSM and their global fear campaign.

    I agree, Fox News is deplorable:

    The incident comes amid global concern over extremists using vehicles to strike crowds, following truck attacks in Berlin and Nice, France last year. Police Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton said the Melbourne incident had no links to terrorism.

    I already miss Obama. But, it's nice he can finally relax after eight years.

    If your emphasis is on that, you may not want to push your historical stance so hard.

    It's not my historical stance, it's the official record of what happened based on the facts and evidence. It's not an opinion I hold.

    History has shown that avoiding atrocities had not been one of its strengths.

    Ridiculous. The world is safer today than it has ever been. We see very few atrocities nowadays, and when they happen, we're all over them because we have learned from history.

    As far as Japan is concerned, Nanking pales in its importance and "universal appeal" to Hiroshima as an event that shows the horrors of war.

    Hiroshima is a lie that is perpetuated by those who want to pretend that the Americans did something bad to Japan. It was actually the Japanese who set off a bomb so they could save face by surrendering. You must know that, right?

    Hostess bars are places of forced prostitution by victims of Japan's sex trade.

    I've been to lots of hostess bars, never once seen nor been offered prostitution.

    That's not to say it doesn't exist, but hostess bars are not in and of themselves places of prostitution. Rather some hostess bars do offer it. But they are by far not the norm.

    You can hide under your bed if you want, but I'm popping the champagne. The pro-war candidate lost.

    Regardless of whether she was pro-war or not, all Trump's actions show him to be pro-war. He has only just taken up the presidency, and he's on the verge of war with China.

    So your comment is pretty confusing, as you seem to be praising the hiring of a pro-war candidate instead ofa another potentially pro-war candidate.
