Check Out What Virginia City Has Planned for Teens Who Dare to Trick or Treat

Published

on

If you’re a teenager in Chesapeake, Virginia and you’re contemplating going trick or treating this year, you might want to reconsider your plans, because it could end up getting you tossed in the clink.

Yes, that’s right, folks. The city has passed an ordinance code that now prohibits anyone who is over the age of 12 from being allowed to trick or treat, and the punishment for getting caught is ridiculously steep.

You could face a between $25 to $100 and six months in jail.

This is further proof that government, no matter at what level, is inept.

The code also prohibits trick or treating after 8:00 p.m.; those who violate the code “shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine of not less than $10.00 nor more than $100.00 or by confinement in jail for not more than 30 days or both.”

The city’s website claims police “will focus on making sure the evening is safe for everyone” but won’t be “actively seeking out violations of the time or age limits.”

“[A] thirteen year old safely trick or treating with a younger sibling is not going to have any issues,” the statement said. “That same child taking pumpkins from porches and smashing them in the street more likely will.”

Evan Maguire, the Editorial Associate of the American Spectator and a native of Chesapeake, Virginia told the Daily Wire he was “upset” about the ordinance. “Having an unjust law on the books, even if it’s rarely enforced, is not right.”

Maguire said he reached out to the city and asked them the purpose for the rule. “This goes against our most fundamental freedoms as Americans and I find these penalties downright authoritarian,” he said in his message to the city. “How dare you prosecute kids over 12 for having fun, they’re still kids!”

Listen, at the end of the day, if everyone is being safe and having a good time, does it really matter how old the kid is at your door? Sure, it seems a bit ridiculous to be that age and still trick or treating, but there’s a whole lot worse things they could be doing.

There are so many more important things going on in the world, and yet, these elected officials would rather limit the fun of its citizens with a nonsensical law as opposed to using tax dollars wisely to ensure prosperity in the community.

And liberals wonder why conservatives want less government?

Francis Filets Critics, Says Church’s Haters Related to Satan Himself

Until Pope Francis can muster some results, his words should be carefully critiqued.

Pope Francis

Amid all of the depraved and gratuitously horrific sins occurring just under his nose, Pope Francis has been his church’s own worst enemy.

His response to the ritualistic and habitual sexual abuse of children being committed by thousands of Catholic Priests the world over has been categorically unacceptable.  In fact, the pontiff has, on several occasions, lashed out at those who criticize the church’s rampant and ongoing pedophilia problem.

His latest tantrum included some childish name-calling, in which Francis related his critics to the devil himself.

While addressing pilgrims from the Italian diocese of Benevento on Wednesday, Francis said people cannot live their whole lives constantly accusing the church of wrongdoings. He referenced the Bible and rhetorically asked who the office of the “Great Accuser” belongs to.

“I’m sorry, I did not understand … I cannot hear well … the devil!” the Pope said, according to ANSA. “And those who spend their lives accusing, accusing and accusing are — I won’t say children, because the devil doesn’t have any — but they are the friends, cousins and relatives of the devil.”

The Pope added that when things aren’t right, people have to report the defects in order to correct wrongs that were committed. However, he said that when defects are reported, they’re made known and the person loves the church

This isn’t the first time that Francis has chosen to on the offensive rather than address the issue.

For all of the pontiff’s vast pontification on the subject of Catholic Church abuses, there has been very little corresponding action.  Record numbers of church members are coming forward to tell their tales of assault, molestation, and rape while the Pope himself takes to labeling his enemies as denizens of the nether.

Until Pope Francis can muster some results, his words should be carefully critiqued.

PETA Launches Anti-Burger Hollywood Campaign for Attention

PETA is a marketing company who kills thousands of animals per year, so, somehow their advice on where to eat after The Oscars is important.

Published

PETA

While many see People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals, PETA, as a mere pest in our popular culture, there are far more sinister realities that should be discussed.

For instance, the fact that PETA does an absolutely abhorrent job as rescuing cats and dogs – something that Humane Societies have perfected over the course of their existence.

Worse still, the main focus of PETA has been marketing and brand promotion – not the treatment of animals in the least bit.  Their constant, grating stunts do very little to save critters whatsoever, while doing an excellent job of reminding us that PETA still exists…for some reason.

Their latest piggybacking marketing scam has the disgraced organization riding the coattails of The Oscars and one of the nation’s most popular burger joints.

Animal rights group PETA is urging Hollywood to skip the growing tradition of hitting an In-N-Out Burger after the Oscars because the fast food joints sell meat.

It has become the “in” thing to hit the In-N-Out drive through after Hollywood’s big awards shows. Indeed, a recent article in People featured a photo spread of the stars visiting the burger chain, according to Hollywood Reporter.

But PETA is highly annoyed with the burger-eating trend. The animal rights group has sent letters to some of Hollywood’s biggest stars to urge them to skip their new In-N-Out habit.

Of course, PETA doesn’t want us all to realize that farmers who grow the food for vegetarians exterminate entire acres of animals in order to put food on the table for the rest of the nation.
