Offendeditis strikes Lewisville, Texas

Lewisville is not too far from Dallas, and I used to go there a lot. So it is with a heavy heart that I report that a case of Offendeditis has been confirmed there


A patron called Lewisville police after what they claim happened during a stop at the restaurant and bar called Redneck Heaven. When officers went to the establishment to investigate they found female waitresses serving customers with only body paint and pasties covering their breasts.

There were no charges filed or arrests made, because the wait staff had broken no law.

Lewisville Police Chief Russell Kerbow subsequently sent a memo to the City Manager saying that while the restaurant was not in violation of the current ordinance, members of the department feel the definition of nudity or state of nudity needs to be changed.

Kunke said the issue would be presented to the city council. “The discussion for council tonight is whether they want to amend the ordinance to say specifically that body paint, body dye and tattoos do not count as opaque coverage.”

As Stephen Green commented

Somebody went to a place called Redneck Heaven, saw some body paint, and went to the cops about it. Now the city council needs to get involved, because… well, I guess because of pretty 23-year-old waitresses who aren’t wearing very much.

If you don’t like what the servers are (or aren’t) wearing, then just leave the damn restaurant. This business of people thinking their personal preferences need to be given the weight of law accounts for every major problem facing this country today. Every single one.

So now we’ll have a bunch of ignorant politicians debating the weighty matter of exactly what geometry of the female breast away from the nipple is allowed to be exposed and what constitutes proper coverage of said side- and/or under-boob.

I’ll tell you who the boobs are: the people who went to the cops instead of walking back to their car.

I could not have said it any better!


California City Manager Paid $677K To Manage City Of 5,000

California City Manager Paid $677K To Manage City Of 5,000 – Big Government

California’s economy is going south at a dizzying rate, but not everyone is suffering, especially in the government. The former city manager of Indian Wells, a town near Palm Springs with a population of 5,000, made a nice chunk of change last year.

Well, perhaps more than a nice chunk. Would you believe a gargantuan chunk? A chunk worth $677,172?

……Former Indian Wells city manager Greg Johnson – right

Yes, you heard that correctly. Greg Johnson received $230,697 in salary and another $446,475 in severance pay last year.

This exorbitant sum of money came at a time when public employees in California received more than $17.6 billion in wages. Unlike Johnson, the average chunk for city employees around the state was $61,259.

There was no comment offered by mayor Mary Roche and the city’s interim manager, Roderick Wood.

Not even, “I knew I was in the wrong job.”
