When did Mike Bloomberg move to Texas?
This is ridiculous on every level. This is not conservatism.
Dancers at strip clubs in Texas soon might have to add something to their attire: a state license to do their job.
State Rep. Bill Zedler, R-Arlington, has filed a bill to require employees at sexually oriented businesses – including dancers – to get a license and display it while working.
You’re doing it wrong, Zedler
The conservative lawmaker said he hopes the measure, if it passes, might encourage women to find another line of work.
“They won’t want to get a license as a stripper from the state of Texas,” Zedler said of his legislation. “I think it would keep a lot of girls from getting involved in that lifestyle and basically wrecking their lives.
“This will force everyone to clean up their act,” he said. “Overall, it will be a benefit to everyone concerned.”
Hey, and you know what you can do next? You can ban soda if it’s more than 16 oz. Or maybe keep Walmart out of the city.
What is this guy thinking? First of all, we don’t need no more stinkin’ government licenses. Second of all, the government shouldn’t TREAD ON ME. Remember that? Am I advocating for stripping? No. I don’t go to the strip clubs. And that’s where my activism ends. The government should not be in the business of dissuading a legitimate life choice because some girls can’t handle it.
I would like to think that everyone that objected to Bloomberg’s government hammer which “curbs behavior” into his personal vision was an objection based on principle, and not what the targets of the hammer were.
