No freaks at our fair, please

A “spiritual adviser and psychic consultant” is being blocked from operating a tent at the Kane County fairgrounds due to a St. Charles ordinance which basically keeps spiritual fruitloops from having any fun.

“No person shall perform or practice within the city as a fortune-teller, clairvoyant, spirit medium, necromancer, seer, astrologist, palmist, prophet or in any other pretended art of telling past, present or future events of another’s life or affairs, to obtain money or property by fraudulent devices or practices.”

I don’t know that fortune telling is a fradualent practice. At least it can’t be any more fradulent than McDonald’s trying to sell healthy meals. It is all in the wording, and if you are boneheaded enough to believe it, you deserve to pay for your stupidity.

    Wow – I never thought I’d respect St. Charles this much.

    I do not believe that anything fraudulant is going on. Theres 2 types of readers, open eyed and shut eyed.

    Open Eyed- Knows they are scamming you

    Close-Eyed- Sincerely believes in his/her gifts

    I perform a form of psychological reading in which a lot is read from a reader. More mind reading and therapy rather then psychic, but it works and most believe what I am doing is really psychic. I NEVER claim this, but they displace the power on me……
