Well I have to say that Stossel patronizing attitude was directed the opposite way I thought it would be. Good for him.
In regard to the sexy nurse thing, people sexify all kinds of professions, like librarians. I bet librarians love the fact that someone might think they are sexy.
Also, I loved his question about Dr. Pepper.
"constant association of sex and nursing"
Oh man, he was doing so well up until that last sentence.
John Stossell: Libertarian Crusader FOR GREAT JUSTICE!
John Stossell will stand up for your rights when small business are oppressed by governement institutions who.... write a letter and then do nothing afterwards. If ONLY there were businesses where employees were allowed to be sexualized without government interference.
I too am a Libertarian Crusader FOR GREAT JUSTICE!
Damn government is standing in the way of this man and his business, plus that ugly woman needs to get a sense of humor.
And like Stossel, you're not an actual libertarian, just a conservative trying to feign an independent streak.
"halloween people dress like slutty nurses all the time"
second on the Dr. Pepper question. or rather on her response.

where the hell is this place so I can go there tomorrow?
i caught an awesome 20/20 recently about 'orthorexics' -- people who have an eating disorder and somehow occasionally die from trying to eat too healthy. that and this clip seem to clearly place 20/20's view on food, like making fat viewers comfortable with themselves.
3 stars only because this could be WAY trashier and was only mildly entertaining.
I want to curl up inside Stossel's luxurious mustache.

1). I am honestly surprised OSHA doesn't have some issues with this.
2). Is Stossle honestly saying that it is a bad thing to have laws requiring that people who are called and advertised as nurses in a place of business actually be nurses? Seriously, just don't call them nurses; people will get the joke without you abusing a legally defined term.
Dude, you can dress them like sexy nurses, just don't call or advertise them as nurses. The government has an interest in making sure certain professional titles goes with certain professional training.
The OSHA thing is a fair point. My second thought (after "Hello, hot mamas") was "Good lord, that is a lot of exposed flesh to be around those huge open fryers full of boiling hot oil."
Oh I get it, I see what you did there.
no one could be that stupid, you must be trolling.
Not trolling at all. I am the anti-Stossel in that I take bureaucratic power and technical legal definitions very, very, very seriously. As for the Doctor Funk issue: Doctor has a wide variety of meanings in our Society: MD. JD. PhD. DDS. DD. DoMJG. (Doctor of motherfucking journalism goddamnit). "Nurse", on the other hand, is nowhere near as poorly defined. I choose to withhold judgment on the Doctor Funk issue until it is determined whether Doctor Funk holds some kind of doctorate, and/or whether Doctor Funk's usage conforms to conventional naming standard for the funkologist profession.
ps: Fuck Dr. Laura. If I had my way there would be a disclaimer on that show every time she came back from break.
"I take bureaucratic power and technical legal definitions very, very, very seriously. "
why? Are you worried someone will confused a slut dressed as a nurse for a real nurse? Slutty nurses give real nurses a bad name? Nurse A spent gobs of money studying to become a nurse, now nurse B works at the heartattack grill and that makes nurse A sad? Thinking of the children? WONT SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!
fight the power homey.
Fight the power? Why on earth would I do that? I want to become the power. I trained to become the power. Brother, let me tell you, when I am the power there will be Sexy Nurse licensing, a National Sexy Nurse Registry, and possibly real-time sexy nurse tracking. In Diogenes America you'll be able to call up a satellite photo overlaid with the locations of all the sexy nurses in a fifty mile radius.
And nobody will be able to stop me because the Sexy Nurse Clarification act of 2015 used the phrase "is committed to agency discretion" in creating the Federal Bureau of Sexy Nurse Management.
you're really bad at defending what you believe in.
either that or you realized how silly your argument was.
Uh oh, looks like someone was just added to two or three watchlists.
Stossel is the guy who did a segment on 20/20 about how food standards are NAZI KKKOMUNIST LIBERAL STALINISM and how the free market would naturally maintain proper food standards because businesses would realize that if people ate their bad meat and died, they would lose money, so without health standard laws, food would be better.
Be a man.

John Stossel's mustache don't cotton to that.
Well they had better start going after all the exotic dancers; who publicly and privately, wear nurse and police officer costumes in their routines as well...I mean it would only be fair.
Sexy nurses are like sexy librarians; they're sexual unicorns, and we all know they don't really exist.
That's a whole lot of stupid in one video. Bravo.
This is sorta like that one King of the Hill episode.
And BTW: "res-tau-rant"
having worked in restaurants since i was 13 the only thing I see wrong with this is the fact that the nurses (obviously real nurses) are in stilleto heels, in my parts if you're in a kitchen you're required to wear non-slip shoes and for good reason, I dont understand how one of these real nurses hasn't slipped and broken their breasts (obviously real ones).
As far as the restaurant owner, It should be well within his rights (as long as he is honest about the products) to serve whatever he wants. What goes on in a private business is the business owner's prerogative. The state shouldn't have the right to ban smoking, or trans-fats or anything else for that matter.
Y'know what really grinds my gears??
Wouldn't it just solve everyone's problem if we just made a new word?
The old, bitter, hideous people who insert catheters can be "nurses", and those pretty young ladies who bring you your burger are "sexnurses".
