You can't make wrong into right by doing wrong more effectively. It's time for real MEN to stand up and take back our families, our society, and our self respect. It is not a crime to be born a man. It is not a crime to act manly.

Brattleboro Chooses Freedom

One small town council votes to mind it’s own business. Vermont prides itself on protecting personal freedom. In much of Vermont that includes the freedom to dress as you want, or not, without the government sending blue gun thugs to haul your ass off to hell. In the town of Brattleboro, VT, last year the national media discovered that many young people were choosing not to dress, and it was legal. Talking head bigots on the usual news sources all snickered because human bodies are titillation. They flocked to show legal images of naked teenagers on their “news” programs. News talking heads love to use soft pornography to gain ratings whenever possible, sex sells on news, and a naked teenager sitting quietly is sex in the twisted minds of psychosexual sickos like Nancy Graceless, Geraldo, and O’Really.

In the town of Brattleboro, VT, the national publicity attracted a few people from other states who were tired of the police state control of our lives from cradle to grave. One man from Arizona traveled all the way to VT for the freedom to walk naked. it was about personal freedom. Some merchants in Brattleboro complained that naked men walking down the street were bad for business, so the SelectBoard passed a temporary “emergency” ordinance limiting nudity (requiring clothing) on its main streets and other parts of the town. The “emergency” ordinance lasted for 30 days and was extended for another 30 days while people in the town debated individual freedom vs. state control. In the end, freedom won in Brattleboro, Vermont. In a 3-2 vote the SelectBoard rejected a proposal to make the emergency ordinance permanent. It will expire at the end of the 60 days, and freedom of dress or undress will return. Read story here

Many other states have laws similar to that in Vermont. Washington state, for example, only prohibits nudity if there is an intent to cause distress to someone else. But the police state in other places is unwilling to obey the law and captures law abiding men for simple nudity. They blue gun thugs use brutality, intimidation, harassment, beatings, and arrest to enforce police state control of our lives, including our clothing, even though the law allows us to make our own individual decision. Just last month in Seattle, WA, the blue gun thugs attacked participants in a “Naked Bike Ride” event that had official permits from the city park department and had been coordinated with traffic control authorities. The blue gun thugs of Seattle, WA, beat up and caged three men who had broken no law.

Bob is encouraged by the decision of the SelectBoard in Brattleboro, VT. It’s one small decision for personal freedom. We need to get the blue gun thugs off our backs and out of our lives. What a free man chooses to wear or not on a hot summer day is nobody’s business but his own.
