The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has always been a target of great disdain, and rightfully so. The department is inhabited by a bunch of heavy-handed tyrannical regulators run amok who care nothing about wreaking havoc at the expense of good old’ common sense.
“Your pier is 1/8 inch too wide. That’ll be $500 or 90 days in jail or both.”
Conditions have improved under current Secretary Cathy Stepp. Even so, a DNR ruling this week has head scratchers working overtime.
Wisconsin has a nude beach (Mazomanie) that features, of course, nudity, and lewd and lascivious behavior and illegal drug activity. The beach has largely been ignored for a long period of time. Now the DNR has stepped in but instead of lighting a match, it’s rubbing sticks together.
Why not just keep the beach open all the time and enforce the same rules that are enforced at every other beach in Wisconsin.
That would require more work for the DNR.
In case you didn’t realize, the Mazomanie nude beach is in…Dane County, the land of crackpots and dope heads.
And why the hell do we need a nude beach in Wisconsin anyway?
I get that some folks want to go au naturel.
