    France says no to burqas. Is France just being French or are they using common sense? I hear the left already coming to the Muslims defense!

    Well...if I were Queen I would outlaw burkas and Muslims in general. But in the USA it would be unconstitutional to do such a thing.

    I've no idea what the French constitution says.

    You at least have the right to ban them from your house. And that's something, eh?

    TBH, I think Burqas are ridiculously stupid and degrading. I'm opposed in principle to allowing the state to dictate which types of clothing can and cannot be worn.

    lol, I'd outlaw McD's as well, but not because I care if you are a porker. More because of the cruelty to animal aspect.

    But I thought women were just meat anyway?

    That's what they tell everyone anyhow.

    Didn't the Brits want to outlaw that?

    Personally if the Frogs are doing this to protect women than I think the law is ill-conceived. However, if they want to do it to prevent crime. I mean, if you owned a bank or jewelry store would you want masked people (you can't tell if they are women) coming into your store!
