Jackie spoke in against the 1012 Inititive back in 2008 at the city hall. We predicted then this outcome. Escort services have exploded in growth and make it easier to exploit the workers.

How about some views of Amsterdam, as well as news? Anything to cover up the angry thread below. Stealing a link posted by wc, on another forum far, far away..

I wondered why speed cameras were called 'Gatsos'

Now I know!

The hateful bastard. Colorado has a death with dignity law working its way through the system. Religious people who disagree need to shut the fuck up and mind their own business.

Nice wallpaper . On one wall in study , perhaps .

I'm surprised that 'Lush' haven't negated any of this, in any city . Its often all you can smell as you walk down Kalverstraat .

She was also somewhat medical Cannabis friendly and the only real home doctor ever in that position.

In the greater scheme of things , this sort of place wont be a great loss to the visitor seeking the simple pleasure of some coffee and a Zoot . As if getting bottom porked for something costing 17 e a gram wasn't enough . Oh fucking no . Now you run the risk of being shot by ' eurochav ' in a gangsta beef . Amsterdam . Its all peace and love , man .

Had a few nights at the Amstel Eden week before last , just behind Rembrandtplein . Quiet midweek . Had a beer and watched people for half an hour . Not a favourite spot but points scored for fucking top Guinness in Mulligans , decent lamb tikka in Shiva and the new marketed hashes at Boerejongens on Utrechtsestraat .

Nothing to do with second tier policing on the tourist strip but there you are .

Always has been, but now it's affecting tourism, the wethouders will start to take notice. They'll use it as an excuse to kick more coffeeshops out of the city centre and shrink the red light district further, blaming them for the venal greed and apathy of the gemeenteraad that's spent the last 30 years having its arse stuffed with American, Russian and Chinese cash rather than, say, doing their fucking jobs.

Fuck them.

I've just seen Sarah Jessica Parker advertising Blokker on tv but maybe it was the bong.
