Has anyone heard about an adult nightclub trying to get a permit to operate in the old Williamsons BBQ building? I heard it was turned down but that wont be the last of it.

Douglasville doesn't have any city ordinances that would allow an adult nightclub.

The real question is do they have any ordinance that does not allow one?

I hope so. That is something we don't need.

I know "to each their own" but PLEASE not right on one of the busiest corners in Douglasville! I don't want to drive by that everyday - or drive my child past it either!

And aren't they pretty much magnets for criminal activity? Do we really need more crime?

Define "Adult Nightclub". I don't take that term to mean strip club but a club that caters to those over 21.

Good point!

I think adult nightclub means xxx

A classy nightclub that catered to 30+ would be nice...

I don't go to adult clubs as you describe but there is nothing wrong with them, they do cater to a certain type of person. Governments have used the crime thing to keep adult (xxx) clubs out of certain areas for years. Them being a crime magnet is totally wrong, there is more criminal activity drawn to places that serve alcohol, malls and even department stores.

Crime or now crime - I think it would be a step in the wrong direction because xxx nightclubs just aren't family friendly.

I guess it is just a stereotype of drug use affiliated with xxx nightclub establishments and the crime that comes along with drug abuse.

Family friendly? No club which is geared towards adults is family friendly. The myth that drugs are affiliated with xxx night clubs is just that a myth. All types of governments around the country have used the crime issue to try to stop these clubs from opening. There have been untold amounts of money spent on legal battles to stop them from opening. DC commissioners are so afraid of getting sued they would allow them to open anywhere. Whether you agree with the club or not it is not my, yours, nor the governments right to stop a business that is legal from opening. All that is doing is forcing my, yours or the governments morality down our throats. We should be trying to get government out of our life not into it more, of course that's not very popular today.

Well, I am tired of having immorality shoved down our throats. And let me tell you, most billboards and advertisements don't feature "morality" as a selling point.

Everyone complains about how stupid government is - it is a reflection of society - I would not like to see the application of less government in today's society!

Really, what would that look like?

You are correct about the advertisements, company's use what sells within the law. Once again you are correct that government is a reflection on the people that it's supposed to govern. IMHO you are terribly incorrect about less government. The feds should do what it was created to do and not micro manage every aspect of your life. The government should not tell law abiding adults what that can do that does not infringe on anothers rights, government should not tell you what you can and can not put into your body, a government should not tell a business what it can and can not sell as long as it does not infringe on another person or company's rights.

Less government would mean alot to all of us not just a few.

I cannot believe,doddleville would get a nightclub.We aren't talking about a stripclub.You can't even by beer on Sunday.When it comes to anything that doesn't involve Church people get all jerked out.People don't want a nightclub?I don't want a church on every corner either.Another thing why are all these Baptist Churchs always called the First Baptist Church.I would prefer not to have a Jehovah Witness,catch me at 6:00 in the morning talking to me if I believe the crap they are trying to feed me at Racetrack and shoving there watchtower down my throat.Can't even get gas in peace.

as long as it does not infringe on another person or company's rights is the key here - and that is why the government is in everything - it is the people that don't respect each other, they just do whatever they want with no regard to others - that keep the government embroiled in the "small" things.

we have all heard of some of the ridiculous laws that were on the books in the past - this is a balancing act that has been going on for years, and will continue to go on

I think it all boils down to the loss/lack of common sense.

Technically there are no "Nightclubs" allowed in the City- only restaurants that can serve alcohol and have live music. A certain percentage of food must be sold in order to keep the alcohol permits.

The government has inserted itself in almost every area of our lives that has nothing to do with violating someone or some company's rights. Just look at the last SPLOST. Government inserts itself when the people in office want something. IMHO government doesn't have a thing to do with respect, heck look at how little respect it has for the citizens. Using the words common sense and governemnt in the same paragraph is ridiculous.

You don't have to sell alcohol to have a night club. This was proven in SC.

whyus,

I respect your opinion, but I have to invoke my right not to discuss politics and "big" government. I have to stick to local.

Government & politics stress me out. Stress can make me fat (according the idiot box), so I must avoid stress at all costs. I prefer to get fat strictly from Krispy Kremes.
