In an attempt to save its citizens from the dangers of an evil western haircuts, the Iranian Government has issued a list of acceptable male hairstyles. Ponytails, mullets, and large spikes are forbidden but looking like Elvis or Simon Cowell is ok. A neatly trimmed goatee and "modest" quantities of hair gel also made the non-evil list. From the article: "'The proposed styles are inspired by Iranians' complexion, culture and religion, and Islamic law,' said Jaleh Khodayar, who is in charge of a Modesty and Veil Festival later this month at which the guide will be promoted."

  • before you call the kettle black, the US is about to get a Supreme Court Justice who doesn't have a problem with laws that tell people what to eat, under the "Commerce Clause" of the US Constitution (meant to prevent trade wars among States).

    • You think that will make a difference to a Supreme Court that has already decided that the Commerce Clause allows the Feds to regulate what plants you grow in your own home for your own use, on the premise that you just might sell them to somebody in another state? (Gonzales v. Raich) []State's Rights have already been completely nullified by the current court.
      • Well, it's also a Court that hasn't granted certiorari on personal-right aspects of 2nd Amendment cases since 1930.

        There's some small hope, which is what Coburn was on about. It would be interesting to see Thomas join with the left wing on the court on an illegal plants case.

        • What's interesting is that the Republicans that want to argue that the National Health Care plan is unconstitutional will also implicitly be arguing that Gonzalez v. Raich was incorrect -- despite the fact that it was strongly argued for by the last Republican administration. (In my opinion, based on results, G. W. was NOT a good Republican!)
          • In my opinion, based on results, G. W. was NOT a good Republican!

            When you're down to 4 out of 435 that can be called 'good', I think the label has lost any virtuous value.

The Bush Jr. administration oversaw unprecedented deficit spending and intrusions into personal liberties, admittedly as a a knee-jerk reaction to horrendous act. But "Conservatism" means maintaining the status quo, not going into fits of over-reaction. It was that "tax and spend liberal" Bill Clinton that balanced the budget,

                The USA PATRIOT act is nearly 400 pages of detailed legislation dealing with operational intricacies of many branches and departments of government. It was introduced just 3 weeks after the attacks.

                While I have no doubt it took some staff time to bundle the bill, large portions were ready to go before 9/11. Never let a crisis go to waste...

                A few weeks ago I noticed two news stories on the same day, I forget the exact topics, but the Democrats and Repu

  • They've actually made "looking like a douche" illegal! Now, before you argue that you have a constitutional right to look like a douche, let me remind you that your right to swing your fist ends where my nose begins, and if people scream "My God, My eyes!" when they see you, chances are you are infringing on THEIR right to not see mullets while walking down the street!
