MJ must be rolling in his grave right about now. Poor guy.Moonwalkers and crotch grabbers; you’re types aren’t welcome in the small Floridian town of Weston. As reported by the Sun Sentinel (why does every other news paper in Florida have the word sun in it? Slightly redundant & boring but if the shoe fits).
If only Ren McCormack were here to settle things straight. He’d be T.C.O.B all the way (taking care of business to the late person).
It seems like the city commission would rather let the minority of criminal instances take precedent over the majority of normal people who want to have a good time besides the typical tried and true classic aka YMCA. Um, no thanks. Regulation is one thing, but an outright ban may cause other Ren McCormacks of the country (including myself) to set up some secret underground world of dance offs and shoulder leans. Here’s a snippet from the article:
The city has no nightclubs or dance halls and, thanks to a new ordinance, it never will.
The commission specifically banned those kinds of businesses, and skating rinks, to prevent a temporary rink from being used conceal a nightclub or dance hall, said City Manager John Flint.
Mayor Eric Hersh called the decision a “non-issue,” because leaders in suburban Weston have always tried to keep those kinds of businesses out.
“There aren’t those uses in Weston, there won’t be those uses in Weston, and we were never planning to allow those uses in Weston,” he said. “This is something that we thought would protect the city.”
To “protect” the city?? Are you high Eric “two step” Hersh? Well, at least we have those ready and able supermen of society there to catch us when we fall. Perfect timing because I was just reminded of a brilliant quote:
“Politicians are people who when they see light at the end of the tunnel go out and buy more tunnel”
True that my friends. True that.
The idiocy continues:
The reason for the city’s ban: Crime and crowds.
Nightclubs, dance halls and skating rinks all attract “large crowds” on a nightly basis, the new law says, which can cause traffic and noise problems for residents and businesses nearby and strain city resources.
With that novel logic, one would be able to ban almost anything. As they say “completely asinine.” With ailing local economies, one would think that appropriately regulating new businesses (instead of pushing everyone to another town) to pump up the economy might be an attainable goal, but it doesn’t seem likely with the aforementioned naysayers. But whatever you do don’t look up. The sky is falling.
