If Repukes GENUINELY believed that dressing a certain way was a disgrace/degradation/etc

then wouldn't they encourage Dems to dress that way rather than try to make rules against it?

If dressing a certain way is actually what they say it is, shouldn't they want their political opponents to run afoul of the consequences of doing so?



What we see instead is brainless authoritarianism. They are simply obsessed with making rules so they can then hurt people for breaking rules. Why? Because their hooting masses seem to like it when they hurt others.

It so fucking infuriating that half of the political power (or more, or less, depending on the measure) is held by dumbassed politicians exploiting easily manipulated dumbassed voters, with no substance to be found anywhere.

I live in a generally brainless state. haha.
