THE MAYER IS RIGHT ON ON THE T SHIRTS. I AGREE WE HAVE LOST THE MORALITY TO THE POLITICAL CORRECT. HE IS NOT BANNING THEM JUST PUTTING THEM IN A PROTECTIVE SPOT. RIGHT ON MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

I agree. These shirts should only be in an Adult Store and not even in a special area of a beach souvenir shop. Isn't Sislin making enough money without having to make a few more bucks by selling this trash. Go Orange Beach Mayor--finally, somebody with guts to say what he thinks. Now, if Mayor Craft of Gulf Shores would do the same it would be helpful.

I agree with the idea of putting the vulgar shirts in another room BUT you really have to wonder about the ADULTS that come to the shops and buy this crap for their children and let them wear them out in public,on the beach,and out to eat. I guess it's a redneck generation raising ANOTHER redneck generation of trash.

This is another reason why they should not be in a souvenir store at all.

Pigeon Forge and Gatlingburg are selling the same tasteless garbage. It's all about parting rednecks from their money. To some ,impressing the people back at the trailer park with a tacky shirt is more important than time spent at the beach or mountains. "OHHHHHH , Tinkubettymuch" !

My wife and I recently returned from Gatlinburg and saw what you mean. There is no way that I would ever be caught wearing some of the T-Shirts that were displayed in the windows but if you print them, someone will buy and wear them. Many towns have codes that forbid pants from being worn below the waist so I think it is also possible for a town to have codes that forbid certain types of lewd T-Shirts. Some people complain about the Government having too much control over their lives but some people are pushing things to such an extent that some Government control has to occur in those instances.

I am sure you are just spouting off about a issue where you are more than incorrect, it takes a dime or two just to afford these "T-Shirts,"
I have seen customers leaving the shops on the Beach with "T-Shirts" and other items and driving off in Corvettes,BMW'S ETC.
You must be mighty rich as you continually down grade others, we all wish we were just like you-(NOT), But I do agree the shirts with questionable content should be out of site and sold only to adults. Think about your statement and give me and the world a definition on what a "Redneck" is.

"Think about your statement and give me and the world a definition on what a "Redneck" is."

Look in the mirror and you might get a hint. Like a Supreme Court judge once said about pornography:'I can't describe it but I know it when I see it.'

Well, I looked in the mirror and did not find the definition for "REDNECK", but if you keep making stupid statements like that, it might be you...

Well, if there is a definition for "Redneck" then it ought to be in the dictionary and anyone who is not a Redneck should be able to check it out on their own if they are so interested. I'm satisfied with my understanding of Redneck and need no further clarification.

Guess what, if you and others don't like it in the "SOUTH" or the people, the interstates are open, have a nice trip.

As far as Rednecks go I do see one in the Mirror.. I might now live in California but I was born in Arkansas to working class folk and see no reason to be ashamed of that.
I believe in keeping my word, helping my family and friends when needed, treating everyone with respect and going fishing when I can, and if people have a problem with that, well, they are the ones with a problem not me.

<quoted text>Nothing wrong with being Southern working class. It's when you get in public and act like trailer park trash, using vulgar language openly in public, talking out loud and on your cell in theaters, walking around without a tee shirt with your big nasty beer belly hanging down, lighting up cigarettes in a smoke free area, getting mouthy when the law tells you to put the open container away,(like you've never heard of a red cup), and the best sign of an Ill MANNERED GENUINE REDNECK is sitting in a restaurant with a baseball cap on. Those toads don't remember how to act in public and the good manners their mothers taught them.
You forgot to add a few items: Quit your job every year when hunting season starts. Avoid any job that has a 401A attached to it. Never work at the same job for more than a couple of months. Always have a plentiful quantity of clutter around your yard. Never pick up dog mess--just run over it with your lawn mower if you ever cut your lawn in the first place. Try not to graduate from high school and be sure that you should be paying at least 3-4 child supports that you never do until the Courts threaten you with jail. I'm sure that I have not listed all traits of the typical REDNECK so anyone who would like to add to this list, please do for those who conveniently say that they can't recognize a REDNECK when they see one.
