And once again, I'm reminded of why I became an anarchist.

Thanks for posting the bill, which was in response to some sort of public nudity event, a bike ride if I remember correctly.

It says nothing about yoga pants. That was a joke. J-O-K-E.

The bill is dead, as expected.

I don't know about all of you but I'm tired of our over-paid and under-worked legislators wasting so much of our time with their frivolous Going-Nowhere bills.

These bills are designed to never really pass muster (or even to be taken seriously) but to set an agenda somewhere with some constiutents, or to get some kick-back from a Lobbyist. They're also designed to waste time and to distract the rest us from real issues (have you noticed that nobody ever proposes a bill to fix Detroit's broken transit system?).

The Bills To Nowhere

Editorial board: Enough with the frivolous bills already

If you're not in a yoga class you shouldn't be wearing those pants. Those are training pants; that's like a ballet dancer walking around in a tutu.

This stands in the same category with those parents taking kids to the bus stop in their pajamas...so rude and embarrassing for the child and his/her friends. Use common sense and see passed yourself for a minute.

I guess no Playtex 18-hour bras will be sold in Montana, once the law passes. No outline of nipples on either sex is going to leave pert near everyone unable to leave their home out of fear the headlights might involunarily jump on high beam.

Hey! At least they aren't discriminating about it. No nipple means nobodies nipples!

You dont need yoga pants to practice yoga. Sweats work just as well.

That community obviously is not interested in being distracted by the very detailed display provided by the pants, and other sheer and glove-tight clothes. If the community in question is good with it, I dont have a problem with it either.

Live in a place that doesnt mind exposure - like NYC or most beach communities in CA - if the use of the product is that important to you.

That guy needs a heavy dose of something psychedelic to have any hope of breaking out of that miserable, puritanical mindset.

Yoga pants seems to be standard uniform for waitresses at most of the restaurants I've been to.

It's obvious that this politician has too much free time on his hands and has lost his way. Instead of focusing on foolish things, he should focus and concentrate his efforts to adopt laws to impose severe prison sentences for politicians who are corrupt and to impose mandatory term limitations for all politicians.

On another note, I thought that the Republicans were for less government!
