The man that owns that club runs a tight ship. I know a girl that works there and they have many rules to follow or get canned before you can blink an eye. She makes more money in two nights than I do in two weeks. She is NOT on welfare, does NOT do drugs, and is NOT in debt. If this man can provide this woman with a steady and stable income, what is the problem. Does Barbour want everyone in this state to draw a fucking check?

no he does not want us to draw a check, because he just cut the state budget, gave toyota a break, raised taxes on our smokes, and refused the obama federal assistance money for creating jobs. he wants us to be homeless standing in the soup line. oh by the way we paid for that service road leading up to the new toyota plant in case you did't know.

You live in a conservative, poor, uneducated state, so.....the laws will reflect this status.

I used to work at this club, the stallion is not anatomically correct. They chopped it off. This club provides great, steady pay to many people in N Mississippi. I for one averaged $500.00 a week, working 4 nights. There is no drug use permitted at the work place, and it is not a whore house. This club should be left alone.

First of all you should go back to school and learn to spell and I think most schooling is free, at least through the 8th grade. You sound like a freight train getting ready to wreck. You have to many bad HABITS!

i have read your comments, i do not see any mis spelling. i did complete high school. i also have a 2 yr college degree. also the bad habbits that i have do not break or violate any laws, or harm anyone.

i have been to up state new york and jersey city several times. i drive a long distance mail truck. you people up there have a slurred speech. i can not understand what they are saying most of the time. maybe you need to go back to school and take a speech class?

I understand pleasing the baby boomers, but how long can we do this? So the stallion is offensive to granny going for her daily doctor's appointment? lol. Who cares? The strip club is not harming a soul, is pulling in money, sustaining a cash flow (to not only the girls), and is entertaining to both sexes and all races. It's a cash cow! If the stallion makes some uneasy, then fine, pull the trademark down. Just like erasing the Wal-mart trademark off the building, it's not gonna keep people from going.

First of all. Everyone knows strip clubs are full of drugs. The owner may run a 'tight ship' to the customer's eye, but more goes on behind the scenes than anyone can imagine. Many of the girls are on welfare and food stamps, and make over $500 a week. Hell, some make $500 up a night. But that money is not reported. Just tax-free dollars in their pockets to support their habits, and yes, in some instances, education and diaper money. But a good bit of that money goes directly into their 'coca-cola' fund. These clubs need more regulation. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are put into the hands of employees and not reported to Uncle Sam. Do you think the admission money is recorded properly? No. Pocketed.'Dance Fees.' Paying off cops and judges with money and poon. And let's not forget 'lap dances' and 'I'll meet you after work'. Regulate!!!!

"Everyone knows strip clubs are full of drugs."

"Many of the girls are on welfare and food stamps..."

"Hundreds of thousands of dollars are put into the hands of employees and not reported to Uncle Sam."

[citation needed]

"Do you think the admission money is recorded properly?"

I would say it is highly likely. If not, it would give the government reason to shut down the bars, which many are itching to do anyway. The owners would not want that so they would have to be very careful. The IRS can be very heavy handed. You don't want to attempt to screw them.

"Pocketed.'Dance Fees.' Paying off cops and judges with money and poon."

[citation needed]

Your entire argument reeks of being based on bias without a foundation of facts.

You obviously have never worked in one of these fine establishments and think everything is cut and dry like Showgirls or Striptease. I got your citation right here.
