I don't frequent these establishments very often, but I have on occasion gone for bachelor parties and stuff. There are two of these clubs within driving distance of where I live and now a potential lawsuit will cause them to close. I don't really care either way if these clubs are here or not, but I absolutely hate the fact that any government local or federal should make my choice for me. As of now these clubs must act as "Preforming Arts" centers. I don't care what they are called, I just hate the government acting as my mommy and making laws based on "moral/religious" beliefs.

Clearly.

Smoking, helmets, guns, nudity, and diet are all clearly things that can't be left to the people's best judgement. Only people we vote to make laws should be allowed those decisions because.....uh....they.....got votes!

From the people.

Who's judgement can't be trusted...

Wait, which ones?

Both wing-tards are torn here.

Liberals have to outlaw the smoking and conservatives the nudity/morality issue.

But the conservatives have to protect smoking/private property rights and the liberals freedom of speech, art, and expression.

I am not a fan of strip clubs. It is not because of of any moral high ground, it is more of a hygiene thing. I unfortunately end up in one about once a month and usually on cesarean section night. I think it is idiotic to try to ban all nude. I do not like someone forcing their morality on me. That also goes for smoking, drinking, trans fat, foie gras, and anything else. I am an ex smoker but I was against the smoking ban. If I did not want to be around smoke I would move.
As for strip clubs the only thing I want to see is hand sanitizing wipes.

Your not to far off the trail.

I admit that if I shake hands with some one I have to wash my hands or sanitize them with in a few minutes or I get very uncomfortable.

Just imagine what is floating around a strip club. I get queasy just thinking about it.

I fully realize that. I also know that every one picks their nose, only 40% of people wash their hands after going to the bathroom and most guy's adjust themselves at least 2 an hour. Now add a strip club environment when I sure there is going to be much more adjusting and who knows what kind of fluid exchange.

Have you given much thought to fast food workers? How about those latex gloves that they end up wearing all day? You don't think they touch their face or scratch their ass with those things on do they? I mean surely they would get a clean pair of gloves if they accidentally sneezed on their gloves right? Surely these minimum wage workers care enough about food sanitation to avoid that right? And something like picking food up off the ground would surely never happen....?

There is one right outside Davenport called "Southern Comfort" which is where I had my bachelor party about 13 years ago, and there is one called "Club Shakers" in a small town called La Motte about 15 miles west of Dubuque. They aren't allowed to charge admission so they simply charge a "parking fee" to everyone regardless of how you arrived to the establishment. Also these clubs can't sell alcohol so they permit patrons to BYOB which really saves some cash over traditional strip joints if ya wanna drink some suds.

The place in question is Shotgun Geniez in Hamburg IA(next to the Pizza Hut). The Reason this is such a hot topic in IA is because the sheriff's niece(age 17) was on stage stripping.

I used to work across the street from the establishment named in the lawsuit. They get around the "no selling alcohol" rule by selling it in a "convenience store" located in the same building as the strip club. They're still getting the profit.

Yes, Mr Fish that is why I do not dine at such establishments. It is not so much the germs as the food born illness or pest infestations.

I have been fortunate enough to cultivate a relationship with a city health dept supervisor and he keeps me up to date on where to go and where not to go.

If I drop a piece of food at home I will pick it up and properly handle it to make it safe to eat.

I have walk out of restaurant before when I have witnessed poor hygiene or improper food handling. I have had bad food poisoning I do not want it again.
A quick piece of advice, if you are trying a new restaurant go to the bathroom the minute you walk in the place. If the bathroom is clean there is a good chance the kitchen will be clean.

That was meant to be light-hearted humor. I find germaphobes to be intriguing, and just wanted to see what you thought. I actually don't share any of those fears. My outlook is that you will find poor hygienic behavior anywhere and everywhere, and it's best to just put it out of your mind and let your immune system deal with it naturally. If you had a "germ meter" that could show the germs on common everyday stuff you touch and don't think about, you'd probably want to live in a bubble. And on the flip side of that, if everything you touched was actually germ free, your immune system would be so weak you would likely die from a cold. As much as you hate germs, you do need contact with them to be able to survive.

The one near where I work charges outlandish prices to get in. They don't sell alcohol, and you are not permitted to bring it inside. However, they don't stop you from getting wasted in the parking lot, and then going inside. When I worked second and third shift here, we constantly had drunks wandering over, knocking on our windows in the break room (thinking they were at Illusions still), using our parking lot as a public restroom, etc.

Should they be banned? No. However, if they don't allow alcohol in the building, I don't think they should allow it on the premises. That's speaking as a company that neighbors one, though. What's the point in not selling alcohol if they allow you to either bring it in or come in drunk? Kind of defeats the purpose of not selling it, IMO.
