Pandering to Voter base is about right.
Both of them.
I was not aware that Montana had enough of a population to have a vote on anything.
It's Montana, so an election there is like one guy arguing with himself over what he wants for lunch.
I kid. I kid.

OTOH, there are some people you don't want to see nekkid. I propose a limited policy based on aesthetics--a panel decides who is okay to expose themselves and who is not.


Ha! Yes there are some people you just don't want to see naked!

LOL

I've had to avert my gaze many times while perusing the aisles of my local K-Mart.

Religion is a sickness of the mind in many cases. Many people that buy into it are weak of mind and soul. Is it any wonder why we see stories like this.

Second verse same as the third verse saying:

What is seen can not be unseen.

But supports the creation of petty laws like this.


Hmmmmmmm

Hypocrisy and false outrage come to mind


Just be honest with yourself mate, you are all full big goverment, as long as its big government with laws, rules and priority you agree with.

Not that I agree with the the idea of tightening decency laws, but have you been to the "People of Walmart" site? LOL

I still don't understand the reasoning behind a flat chested petite woman getting arrested for going topless yet fat men with their boobs hanging out are able to walk around all day no problem.

(Disclaimer: This Post is the Opinion of an Atheist)

While Religion has been often cited by the non-religious as a bad thing, I don't see it as a mental sickness of any sort. Yes, there have been atrocities committed by the religious in the past and even in the present. But the same can be said of Atheists as well, such as the mass genocide that took place under Stalin's rule. Or the massive starvation as result of China's Mao.

Religion has also been responsible for significant scientific advancement (even if that same religion held back progress in certain areas), and wondrous works of art. I think to paint all religion with such a broad brush is erroneous. Certainly religion has provided a great moral compass for those who might otherwise be led to lives hedonism and avarice. Though there are those who take their beliefs too far.

What I'm trying to say is, Religion has it's good and bad, just like any ideology. And just as any ideology, it's largely subject to wide and varied interpretations.

Congratulations you get a star from me. I rarely see anyone who is a committed atheist, give a fair representation of Religions role in history.

Let's not make any new laws please, can't we all just agree that yoga pants are universally despised and move on?


Depends on who is wearing said yoga pants.

Well that's easy, most men like boobs, on their women, but not so much on other men. LOL
To be honest I don't know much about what is going on in Montana from what little I do know I think it has more to do with someone riding their bike around in the buff to protest some oil thing or another.

I think when you go out of your way to show someone your stuff it starts getting tricky.
After all what is the difference between a old man begin pervy and "exposing himself" to children, and a old naked man riding by on their bike "exposing themselves" to children?

Thanks. I'm not an atheist by choice, so I certainly see the good it has done as well as the bad.

Get real.

There are those kinds of laws on the books. ALREADY.

Namely to protect children.

I like nudity as much as the next guy., but NOT when kids are around.

Yes there are.


But adding MORE laws and rules is not making goverment any smaller is it?
