    We have a large number of Indonesian girls at the school I go to. They wear head coverings and full length dresses, but the costumes show that one can 'work to rule' and still give it the finger

    That's as dumb as some of the idiot stuff PETA does.

    I think they're more all about seeing how much attention they can draw to themselves rather than any protest statement.

    That's fair for you to think that but all protests are about drawing attention to the protestors and the message. Can't do one and not do the other

    They should be very VERY happy they are in France and not some sharia ruled country.

    Can we say public caning and honor killing?

    that is all.

    The Burka ban or niqab ban I believe would be unconstitutional here in America as well. So long as women are free to choose not to wear the garment of course.

    Another "problem" for the private sector IMHO. Or, at least in a limited way, the States, such as saying your can't wear something that covers your face in a State ID. But as usual, private solutions are best. Banks wanna bar them? Fine, there is a legit self interest there. Bars wanna bar them? Fine, not that you will see them show up in bars a whole bunch but if it saves just one guy from being tricked into taking home a fugly girl it was worth it. :lol:

    Niqab at a baseball game? Who cares? A national ban? Too far IMO. Just as every newspaper, magazine and TV show should have shown the Muhammad cartoons in support of free speech, everyone in France should wear a niqab one day just to stand up to goofy laws.

    I know this much, as an employer, I also have the right to not hire them for failure to comply with company dress code.

    I think that would be fair in the private solutions sense. Those things would kill a Hooters overnight. :lol:

    Photo ID's? Checking an ID's to match up to who is carrying it?
