Baggy Pants Against the Law


Making baggy pants against the law is just a way to make it easier for our growing police state to harass people and call it legal. I admit to me saggy pants looks stupid and formerly was the style reserved for old men too fat to still wear jeans. If one doesn't own the right to one's own body, this country is pretty well screwed. Of course what you wear is an indication of your attitude and occupation and the hanging pants do not say conservative thinking.

You will never see any laws making $1600 purses illegal or in fact any of the absurd looks pushed by the fashion industries (and incidentally most trends start in the black community). I was looking for a picture of baggy pants to put on this post and found tons of baggy pants that are apparently the fashion, although they have a waistband. And what is retail fashion but continual obsolescence- the haute monde would not be caught wearing last years fashion. This is not entirely a harmless industry when you consider our growing garbage disposal problems and the energy used to keep pumping out clothes that are seldom worn out. Like the bumper sticker says: INSATIABLE IS NOT SUSTAINABLE.

Call me paranoid, but I often wonder about seat belt laws. We don't make lots of dangerous human behavior illegal but the seat belt laws enable police to stop people they want to harass and enables a quick inspection. Since medical mistakes kill more people than car wrecks, it would make more sense to imprison careless doctors if the state actually wished to protect us from fatal accidents.

    Yes, not wearing your seat belt says you might not be law-abiding. Speaking of medical mistakes, I watched an interesting movie about how syringe reuse by the medical establishment has caused as much as 20% of the AIDS in Africa and how one corp stopped the adoption of the one-use variety. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5182317638126553942

    The reason I do not have any spam guards is because it is so easy to delete them and I don't want to discourage comments even a little. Saggers Gone Wild is at least on topic but I am not interested in porn or inviting viruses. The anonymous link was actually very interesting. The producer of the movie also is doing another movie on the Korean War which he says was as unwarranted as the Vietnam War.
