That is why I would never want to go to a national convention again. It is a convention and they should want to know the location of the nearest strip  The nominee is normally already decided and it should be a time or drinking and enjoying all that a city may offer with people that hold similar views. The people that attend the RNC now, while secretly doing a number of things that could be called questionable, do not drink and other than the group from Wisconsin the few that do are lightweights. Not really a fun convention unless a person enjoys the company of vocal evangelical Christians

If they want to help the city get the event they should have put up posters advertising an all-male revue on the date of the convention.

Turns out the Republican Conventions are really good for the sex trade.  It also spikes craigslist ad's for random gay hookups. (Both links are SFW)
 
2014-06-08 08:36:01 PM  
They already know where it is

And kept the "Totally Nude, Barely Legal" signs.  Although those cheap farkers will just use craigslist to hook up with their boy toys these days, not spend money on a cover charge.
 
2014-06-08 08:41:05 PM  
Is this about classing up the joint and preventing Republican visitors from being scared off, or to prevent the media from taking clearly-labeled photos of convention attendees on their way into and out of the club?

"Oh, I thought it was something else, and I left right away.  I swear."

Proof republicans grow the economy and are tolerant of private gay relations.  I hope everyone will remember those matters are settled from now on.

Better to put up a sign offering tax credits on the purchase of commercial-sized cans of Crisco and battery-powered Earnie Shavers Rubber Fists

Wrong sex. Move along.

Be offended? I think that would be a selling point. Remember, the last GOP national convention was held in Tampa, which is #3 for strip clubs per capita in the US (Vegas being #1 and Cincinnati being #2).

It took 2 comments for someone to point out the obvious.
 
2014-06-08 10:39:14 PM  
Honestly though, the thing that probably offends the people that would go to a GOP convention isn't the nudity so much as that a bunch of women are working outside the home and making money which means that they aren't beholden to some man that they are completely reliant on for support.
 
2014-06-08 10:40:40 PM  
Yeah, if anything, KC doesn't have enough strip clubs or gay bars for the RNC. And there's no nudity in most of the strip joints if I remember correctly.

They only went in there to ask directions on how to get away from there.

Aren't they competing with Dallas, which if I recall, also has a high number of strip clubs per capita?

I know a dude who started an "Almost Legal" strip club. He almost didn't go to jail.

Dr.Zom: Yeah, if anything, KC doesn't have enough strip clubs or gay bars for the RNC. And there's no nudity in most of the strip joints if I remember correctly.


It would be a good reason to have their convention in KC, then. So that the "Log in the Cabin" weirdos don't show up to do their false flag act.

I found the Dallas strip clubs better than Tampa's, IMHO.

Yep, that's why they held the last convention in that becon of "Family Values" known as Tampa.

Let's change all the speed limit signs to say "barely legal speed" and see what happens.

Hopefully, they don't pull a King Joffey and use the girls for target practice.

The sign actually just says "Totally Nude." Subby invented the "Barely Legal" part.

The no-nudity, no touching laws are only for places that sell booze for some reason. You'll notice in the video that there's a bar right next door to this strip club because it can't sell alcohol itself.

No SMU coed has to dance for her tuition. Mommy and Daddy pay for it and live just across the street.

I've never quite understood the regulation/law that says "Fully nude cannot sell alcohol." Is it too much sin in one place or what?

I don't understand it, and I live here.  Plus there's no strip clubs at all in St. Louis County, unless they're underground or something and don't advertise.  So people here drive to Illinois for strip clubs.. and since I don't have drinking buddies, and don't want to visit southern Illinois, especially at night, I never go.

It was a pretty blatant attempt to First Amendment issues by making it difficult to run the business.  Same thing they do to abortion clinics.  You don't actually outlaw them, you just use the full force of the government to make it impossible to do business.  You know, free-market conservatism.

California is the same way. Being from Oregon it always seemed odd.

In Missouri it is no touching not boobies alcohol or not.There are still clubs in Missouri but they are pretty boring.  The totally nude sign is an artifact of the law.  Because of laws about adult signage they can't make a new sign that might be considered adult but the old one is grandfathered in.

Exactly.  East St. Louis, the town where the police chief quits every few years.  "I can't do this!"

They were probably just worried that Republicans would see "Barely Legal" as a cry for help from an oppressed business and relax the relevant laws.

They've already tried to repeal all child labor laws in Missouri.  There were no exemptions for types of business.
