FASCISM ALERT

Now they're taking away our right to go naked, AND to go dressed.

(Thanks to many alert readers, and to Rebecca Roser)

"I have no idea how you detect the naked."

I have got to rush this guy a sales brochure about my patented (okay, pending) Nekkid Detektor Devices (NDD). I gotta translate the instruction manual into Español first, I guess.

*assateague*

sorry, wrong thread

re the Confederate flag dress... shoulda just run her up the flagpole...

*shakes head in disgust*

Some days living in the South is just too much for me. The worst is her parents are probably proud of her and she probably legitimately has no idea how offensive and/or ridiculous her actions are.

said her lawyer, Earl-Ray Neal

Yep, they're in Kentucky...

Key Quote: "We are talking about zero tolerance ... for a lack of morality."

Help me out here. Being naked, in an attempt to keep cool in the swealtering heat, IN ONE'S OWN HOME, is somehow immoral?!

Damn! I guess I can't EVER tell the cops there that I regularly go to Haulover Beach in Miami and Orient Bay on Sint Maarten. Sheesh!

Part of me wants to sign up as a member of the police's Naked Task Force . . . but then I remember that there are many, MANY people that I just don't want to see undressed.

PS Judi! I love you! You are the best! Happy holidays - and screw the Scrooge. (Better still, DON'T screw him.)

Regarding "Stars 'n' Bars Prom Dress Girl"; wasn't Kentucky (at least officially) neutral during the Civil War? I think it was. I don't know if this makes this gal's actions more or less stupid and pointless but it kinda undermines any "heritage" angle to her argument.

Kentucky was a border state, with parts both Union and Confederate. The problem with the 'heritage' argument is that part of the heritage of the Confederacy is some very ugly stuff. And doubtless, Miss Prom Girl would probably claim, 'well my family didn't own any slaves (as most Confederate soldiers didn't)', but what is the difference between that and a German displaying the swastika, saying it was a proud battle emblem, etc., and thinking it was alright since they didn't personally kill any Jews?
*end of sermon*

I would like to see the ACLU's reaction
to some girl trying to go to her prom wearing a swastika dress...Morons...they are all Morons!..

Take heart, gang. The US will catch up! We're just one elderly and ailing Supreme Court Justice away from being able to persecute naked people in their own houses and wear offensive clothing out of doors...

I was on this site "Something Awful" the article wrote by Rich Kyanka sayin stuff about the confederate flag... And the stuff that he had said was wrong.. The confederate flag stands for PRIDE... NOT RACISM. That is where most people are wrong.. They think that the flag is about racism.. WELL SORRY TO BUST THEIR BUBBLE... IT STANDS FOR PRIDE OF OUR SOUTHERN ANCESTORS.. I may be young.. but i am all for supporting your heritage. It agrravates me that people can say that kind of thing... like one of my favorite shirts say "If you dont like my flag You need a history lesson" If that guy what ever his name was.. looks back and DOES HIS RESEARCH.. the Civil war was not all about slavery. Yea that is what split the North from the south. BUT all the states that had slavery didn't all go to the south.. General Lee did not own and slaves BUT Grant did.. NOW TELL ME SOMETHING. Lee was in the south. GRANT WAS IN THE FREAKIN NORTH..i have studied many of my history books.. and that is what they all say.. SO TELL ME ANOTHER THING. HOW CAN THE SOUTH BE RACIST AND ALL THAT OTHER BS WHEN THE NORTH HAD SLAVES ALSO.. im not sayin that there arent racist. people that are racist are just ignorant. People can talk about the flag all they want to but there is something that they are forgetting... THEY HAVE A HERITAGE AND I AM PRETTY SURE THAT THEY SUPPORT IT.. SO if a southerner does it..WHY do we get shot down...FOR DOING THE SAME FREAKIN THING???? FOR SUPPORTING OUR HERITAGE?????? SOME ONE ANSWER THAT ONE.. YOU HAVE A HERITAGE AND I HAVE MY OWN.. I DONT SAY NOTHIN ABOUT YOUR HERRITAGE.. SO WHY DO YA'LL KEEP INSULTING MINE AND MANYYYY OTHER SOUTHERNERS THAT FEEL THE SAME WAY THAT I DO? You black people are proud of being from africa..WHY CANT I BE PROUD TO BE A SOUTHERNER BORN AND BREED HERE... The stuff that happend back then with the whole slavery thing happend then.. SO DROP THE PAST AND GET OVER YOURSELFS???? and if u have a problem with all of the things that i have said.. UR RACIST AGIANST WHITE PEOPLE.. HAVE A NICE DAY

Hello, i am a southerner! How are you today. I am fine, and the south is fine, that is without people like you here. You know, people that call racism, are the ones that are racist. I am the most free minded person that sees both sides. I understand alot of what the slaves went through, no i was'nt there but i have read my history books. It was not a good thing that alot of them had to go through. But i am not going to appologize for something i did not do.
Some black people want to blame the white people for what happened to their ancestors. Some of them want us to appologize to them for something that was out of our control. Sir, there are certain types of people in this world. I will not mention them because i may offend you with some of the types. But my point is that in life you have to stand up for what you believe in. You want to live your life living in the past and being racist, that is fine with me. I will respect ignorance. (people not knowing any difference) That comes in to where some people that have not read their history books.
No, i am not proud of what some of my ancestors done, but that does not stop me from being proud of where i come from. Are you perfect? No! Are you proud of what all you have done in life. No! But you are proud of where you come from. I don't put down the african flag, i don't put down any other flag. That is where they come from. They have a right to be proud of that. Why should some racist pig come and try to put it down.
I deal with racism in the type of work i do. I am sick of it. It is to get what some of them want. To strike a nerve. The only reason it will hit a nerve is because it is all stupidity. Yes, there are some white people that refuse to get out of the past also. That is them! Just like you. Get over it!!!! Go on with life and be happy without trying to hurt others.
I am proud of the southeren flag. That is me! Not trying to make you happy. I am making what i believe in happy.You make where you come from happy. That is cool. I like Nascar. Is there anything racist about that? They race up North too! well!
I am not going to get into the history lessons. You need to read them yourself. But what i am going to say is that i live with the saying "treat others the way you want to be treated." If you show me respect, i will show you respect. If i show you respect, then i deserve the same. I really think some people need to get into doing the same thing. It is not a south thing or a north thing. It is the human race thing. Try it, you might like it.
have a good life and look to the future, not the past.
