    first happy meals, now raves.

    sounds like a catalyst for...

    ILLEGAL CHEESEBURGER PARTIES...
    an entirely new counterculture centered around dangerous over-consumption of mcnuggets to the beat of repetitive techno beats in abandoned crack houses.

    lolz. yeah this shit lately is fucking stupid. the politicians think that they can control every part of someones life, and most people in this country are gonna let them because theyre apathetic. first with too many retarded new jersey college freshmen spiking their four lokos with vodka (and having 4 at a time) and now dumb 16 yr olds ODing at massives/raves/edm shows and getting it taken away for the rest of us.

    dont ban shit just cause some people are retarded. just regulate it so the dumbasses who dont make good decisions arent allowed to have fun.


    not to mention i work at a YMCA part time and i almost got fired for drinking a gatorade (the kind my diabetic brother INHALES because its the only drink that wont mess with his blood sugar) in front of kids who come into school/the y after school with 2 lunchables, a 2 liter coke and a bunch of twinkies and havnt seen the light of day or fresh air in 2 yrs cause theyre addicted to their xboxes. because gatorade isnt promoting healthy eating habits. fucking nonsense IMO.

    (a) Any person who conducts a public event at night that includes prerecorded music and lasts more than three and one-half hours is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or twice the actual or estimated gross receipts for the event, whichever is greater.

    Just curious, what counts as "prerecorded music"?

    OMG this just makes me Effing Sick:

    By creating a new crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated
    local program.


    By creating a NEW CRIME???? since when did goverment one created by the people and for the people have the right to create NEW CRIMES out of thin air.


    Also, I thought there was a federal law already inplace for this? The rave act which was attached as a rider by that asshole Joe biden, in 2005 to the amber alert bill.

    Wow this just makes me sick...

    First off it is a huge human rights violation to prevent people from holding a "public event at night that includes prerecorded music and lasts more than three and one-half hours"

    What constitutes a public event, the fact that this is not defined anywhere in the act means this can cover almost anything. A crime has to be specific public event is not.

    As mentioned above what constitutes pre recorded music? This was not covered in the act and therefore could cover any number of things.

    I also like how they said that night is between sun set and sun rise. This means that the hours this law would be in effect would vary from day to day as the days get longer and shorter.

    I hope this does not get enacted...

    end of my rant

    If this act gets passed, events need to start at 2030 and end by 0200? To be within 3 1/2 limit. I dont see this passing. If it does, they will take it up to higher courts
