Default The Underwear Police

You would think that there would be more important things they could be working on.

And who will be measuring how much is too much?

LMAO!! hilarious!! don't these people realize that they look like complete idiots dressed this way?! i absolutley laugh my ass off, they think they look cooll hahaha!! A couple of months ago this dude walked across the street (while several lanes where stopped at the red light ,me included) and i absolutly pissed myself when i saw that his jeans were way down his ass, crotch down to the knees, i mean he had to walk slowly just to make sure they didn't fall down
Funniest of all even his underwear was apparently victim to this fashion craze and we all got an eye full of his ASS!!!!

Its a symbol of the decay of society. Politicians with such cushy lives they havent got anything else to deal with than crap like this.
The Roman empire went the same way - they got soft and spent too much time on non vital issues - then the barbarians came and took it all away.

Me? my pants are going to stay firnly hitched above my armpits...

Anyone remember in the 60s when some people wanted to ban long hair for guys because it made them look like girls ?

Good Taste is a very individual (or group) thing. My own teenage daughter wears Goth stuff. She is a tall, leggy, slim, (natural) blonde who looks fabulous in an elegant gown. Who am I to tell her that her Goth stuff is in bad taste just because I don't like it ?

I think that the ass-hugging fashion is ridiculous, but I wouldn't presume to tell the kids at the Mall as much. It's none of my business.

Tolerance of differences is a wonderful thing.

Seriously though, it's an odd thing. Many Americans grow up believing, as an act of faith, that this country is more free (without providing any definition of "free") than any other; that the Press is the best (and the most free, naturally); that the education system is the best; the economic system is the best; the health care system is the best, etc. etc. Most of them can't substantiate it, don't know anything about how things are in other countries; they just believe. I'm not saying there aren't a lot of good things to say about this country, but it is, in the end, like any other place - some good, some bad. But it is extraordinary how they truly believe that the very essence of freedom is the U.S.A.

My husband is the worst offender for that. I've asked him about it and all he (card carrying NRA member) can come up with, is the right to bear arms!

The reason why some dudes wear their pants so low down (and the tradition is without a belt) is because they are show solidarity with their brothers in the big house who can't wear a belt.

Don't ask me how I know that...

On that basis, Afghanistan and Yemen are free countries.
