The proposed ban on saggy pants is more serious than most people would think. For one thing it is and unconstitutional violation of freedom of expression.

Secondly it interferes with parents' rights to dress and raise their children as they see fit.

Third is affirms terrorist organizations and Islamic extremists. In Saudi Arabia a woman can be fined or jailed for not wearing a veil or for wearing one that is too thin. In Afghanistan, it was illegal under the Taliban for a woman to appear in public without being covered by a burqa and girls and women were beaten for wearing nail polish. Men were jailed for cutting their beards or persecuted because they did not have enough facial hair to grow one. Public dress codes are always a sign of government oppression.

In underdeveloped countries the governments make school too expensive for poor children by requiring uniforms. Nazi and communiist countries and other dictatorships require children to wear school uniforms. So do dictatorial Catholic schools that don't hire real teachers, accept children who are different or allow diversity of any kind.

Banning baggies is racist, sexist, ageist and supportive of political and religous conservatism and the Catholic church.

Louisiana already has a reputation for being backwards. Jena 6 was the latest black eye. Running David Duke for governor----seriously, not as a joke----and parishes actually voting for him was an affront to the entire Southeast. Recently we lost a plant to an equally backward state, Alabama. Louisiana is the only state where the population has actually decreased! People don't want to live here because of its reputation.

Banning baggies is just another nail in the coffin. For a suburban area like Ascension Parish it is especially deplorable because it is in the spotlight by virtue of its decent schools and rapid growth. On top of all this, the ACLU does have the word. So taxpayer money will be wasted trying to defend any ordinance passed. This is as ridiculous as Baton Rouge not passing the One Baton Rouge resolution. It needs to be stopped now. We cannot let Ascension add another nail to the state's coffin.

For starters, Twinkie, the US constitution does NOT give you the freedom of expression. "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." That's the first ammendment.
Second, no matter color, sex or age you are; we don't want to see your undergarments. The problem is not baggy pants, it's saggy pants. "Banning baggies is racist, sexist, ageist and supportive of political and religous conservatism and the Catholic church." That's your quote and I agree with that, but it's not the issue. The problem is exposing your undergarments and bare pelvic skin to the general public. I don't care who you are, I don't want to see your underwear.
"Secondly it interferes with parents' rights to dress and raise their children as they see fit." That's your quote, too. Gee, I hope you're not sending your children to school with their genitals exposed.
If you don't agree with me, lets have someone expose themselves to your mother and then we'll talk about what US "dress code" laws are appropriate.
