If these conservatives had their way, pretty soon we'll have women wearing clothing from head to toe, only being able to see their eyes...

What? Wait a minute...

jude, I'm really, really sorry, you asked for this...



I'm the one on the left.

It was a bad hare day. . . . . . .

Go yoga pants!


Hares should be outlawed.


Peace

I support this. No one NEEDS to wear yoga pants!


Oklahoma huh? And no one needs overalls and Skoal dripping off your chin either!

Americans glorify violence, torture, blood and guts, shooting people, but the human body is to be hidden and legislated against being exposed. imo...symptoms of a very sick culture. No wonder the www. is mostly porn. See the disconnect?


We shouldn't generalize. It's one lawmaker in one state who is trying to pass this-not Americans. I certainly don't glorify violence and don't know anyone else who enjoys it, although it does seem to sell-to a lot of people from a lot of countries.

Wait, isn't "big government" the same whether at the Federal, State, or local level?

Local laws and government officers have a much higher impact (intrusion) into our daily lives than anything Federal.


You can move away from a town or state.


You can move out of the Country too; but this is not a common sense approach to the issue.

It is a principal known as "voting with your feet". It means that if your local government becomes too oppressive or maintains a policy that detracts from your ability to get work and make a living, you can leave and find greener pastures.

This is impossible if those deleterious policies are national.

Okay-Well, maybe it's the element of those we associate with? I honestly don't know (personally) of anyone who feels the way that you describe, but I think that people are (mostly) the same everywhere. We all have differences yes, but we are more alike than we are different.. for the most part.

Have you ever seen what a beer drinking man can do to a toilet? And I have to clean it.

Lol, I did for a period of time work as a janitor..womens washrooms where a horror show far beyond the mens

As for the subject at hand it just sheer pandering to his audience..very silly stuff. Scared of the human body and his own reaction to it is my guess.
I love that this mental midget suggests he trusts the police to use their discretion..like each individual officer?..sounds reasonable..lmao.

Why would any man want to ban Yoga pants? What will he want next, families required to sacrifice their 1st born. No, this man is a terrorist.

No! You can't sacrifice the first born. Don't you know! The first born always goes to Rumplestilskin! Man, do I have to teach you guys everything?

How do you ban the greatest invention ever? Below I have made a list based on importance.

1. Yoga Pants.

2. Automobiles, Airplanes, Computers, Modern medicine, and a bunch of other nonsense.

From the Declaration of Independence:



We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.


So, whenever ANY government becomes destructive to our LIBERTY, we are not to run to the next state and hope they don't take up the same stupid laws. We should alter or abolish the oppressive government with the voice of the people, not run from them with our feet.



This is impossible if those deleterious policies are national.


It's not at all impossible to move to another country.

And if one state gets away with it, another state will surely try. It's our job and responsibility to make our employees (the government) work for us, not run away from them when they get too oppressive.

The constitution is for the union of the states, the federal government.

Also, that is the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution (not that I consider the DOI beneath legal consideration).

So, are you saying that, if I don't like the prices at one store I should kill everybody rather than go next door to check the competitors prices?

I should make it clear that we will dissolve the federal government if it continues to ignore the constitution as we rightly should, most likely without bloodshed.

Many years from now, while you lay watching re-runs of Dr. Oz in your beds, would you trade all the days from this to that for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our politicians that while they may take our yoga pants, they will never take our freedom!

First they came for yoga pants and I did nothing for I did not wear them. Next day they came for wife-beater sleeveless shirts, and I still did nothing for I did not wear them. Then they came for (insert male equivalent of yoga pants here) and nobody did anything.

What do you mean by that? It's for us all. It regulates the states. (Check the 14th amendment). And what I said has nothing to do with the Constitution.



Also, that is the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution (not that I consider the DOI beneath legal consideration).


Then why do you mention it? I SAID it was the Declaration of Independence. It's a highly regarded clause.



So, are you saying that, if I don't like the prices at one store I should kill everybody rather than go next door to check the competitors prices?


Yes, that's exactly what I said... :rolleyes: We're not talking about STORES or the free market, we're talking about the government. ANY government. Federal OR state.

Oh dear, I think you have entirely misunderstood the purpose of the federal government.

I think you have misunderstood what I've said. I didn't say it "rules" us. Where do you get this? It regulates the state government in some areas to protect the PEOPLE from state government. If that's not clear, I can draw pictures.
