Myrtle Beach, SC - Dozens of bikers protested a thank-you barbecue held for South Carolina officials who helped pass rules to remove the May motorcycle rallies after anyone on a motorcycle wasn't allowed into the party.
Multiple media outlets reported Wednesday that security guards turned bikers away from the Myrtle Beach luncheon sponsored by the group Take Back May, which was formed to get rid of the motorcycle rallies that take up much of the last half of the month.
Group founder Tom Rice says he doesn't want people to forget the inconvenience of the rallies now that they are gone.
Myrtle Beach passed several new laws before this year's bikers rallies, including ordinances banning parking lot gatherings, loud mufflers and riding without helmets.
Ah yes, makes me long for the old days when they had book burning parties and rock and roll record burning parties and dress codes and censorship and wait a second, read this from Brooksville Fl:
Brooksville, Florida - Brooksville is known for its moss hanging oak trees, its quiet country charm and now some say a city council that's gone too far.Heathens that's what they are, heathens I tell you! Brothers and Sisters I tell you that as foretold in scripture evil has come to destroy the earth. Can I hear an Amen? All across the land morals have been corrupted by the pantiless, by the braless, by those that ride motorcycles by God, and reach over and cover your children ears lest they be contaminated by what you are about hear, that's right brethren, the deoderantless!
"I just think its stupid Brooksville is getting so anal they're telling people what they can and can't wear," says Brooksville resident Allen Branch.
What city employees don't wear is making as much news as what they do wear. A new dress code addresses both. In her 13 years as a city employee, Linda Sidor says she never noticed a problem, "I've never seen anyone any employee dress inappropriately."
The new dress code calls for employees to use some protection the deodorant kind. Underwear is also a must for both women and men.
"It's pretty sad they have to do that most normal person puts on underwear and deodorant," says Skip Haragan.
"I don't understand how are they going to be able to tell if they're wearing underwear or not," adds Branch
Showing your midsection may be fashionable except at work.
Tattoos are seen as art by some but it's not for show when working for the city. Skip Haragan's employer makes him cover up is tattoos. "It's fine with me," says Haragan. "If you work for the courthouse, a bank or represent someone you don't want to be showing them."
The dress code also says employees are not to wear clothes considered to be distracting offensive or revealing. Body piercings are to be limited to the ears.
There are other government officials who say they have to abide by dress codes too, it's part of the job. Hernando County Chief Deputy Property Appraiser John Emerson goes to work every day in dress pants, a shirt and tie. "We do deal with the public on a regular basis we try to look professional. I think it looks professional," says Emerson.
The city council voted 4 to 1 in favor of the updated dress code. Mayor Joe Bernardini voted against the dress code, "I voted against it. I think it takes away people's personal freedom in my opinion it insults their intelligence a little bit."
Bernardini says the new dress code aims at employees that don't always use common sense. He says the way employees dress hasn't been a problem the city just wanted to update its policy and procedures. Even so Bernardini doesn't agree with it, "I thought it is a little extreme taking away people's choice and personal freedoms."
Sidor says the city is wasting time focusing on a dress code, "I think there are other things to think about that are more important."
That's right you heard me Brothers and sisters, you heard them words come right out of my mouth. But you needed to. We must not close our eyes to the rampant Godlessness that is sweeping the country. Stinking Heathens what don't wear no panties have spread near and far. As far as from the Holy town of Brooksville, Fl to Golf Mecca in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Why there may even be some Godless non panty wearing, pierced in nefarious places, motorsickle heathens sittin right here amongst us. That's right! Right here amongst us. Lean over and sniff your neighbors arm pit and see if I ain't lying by God. Oh how far we have strayed when we stopped nailing people to crosses and burning them at the stake, can I hear an Amen! I say can I hear an AMEN?
And do not think my children that you are immune to the ways of Satan. Who amongst us is not guilty of "freeballin"? Who amongst us has stepped out of the shower before putting on deodorant? Who amongst us has not strayed into a Fredricks and coveted a pair of crotchless pantihose? That is the way of the Devil Brothers and Sisters and before you even know it you are led into that den of iniquity
to worship at the altar of chrome and leather!
Congregation I beseech you, turn your thoughts from your evil ways. Go out into the world and spread the gospel. Steal from the poor and give to the rich, send your children off to war for oil, spy on your neighbor and report them to the thought authorities, run over motorcycle riders if they get in your way!
But do it with perfumed pits and clean panties and you too may enter the gates of heaven and be greeted by Lexus driving Angels in suits and ties and perfumed pits. Yes brothers an sisters, you may walk among the homeless, the sick, the crippled, the mentally challenged and the spiritually broken and not be tempted.
You will pick from the tree of plenty, be forgiven your sins and rewarded with eternal life if only you rebuke Satan and wear your underwear.
Can I hear an Amen!Add to Technorati Favorites
