He can take it off, or I'm taking it off.. and that's a fact.
Like you said, you have to pick your battles and that would be mine.
Exactly.. Its a social moray. Make society not accept it. If he's trying to make money on it, he's defrauding people. That's a civil matter usually.
Its just ridiculous all the laws about every little thing. Much less someone dressing up and playing soldier. He can dress up like ANYTHING else, but not a soldier no no no.
If he was trying to fight a war.. that would be the act I would find illegal. Just like a fraudulent doctor practicing all the way down to putting a loud on muffler on your car. It impinges other peoples safety and liberty.. Its wrong. This guy just rubs you the wrong way and harms absolutely nothing but your sensitivities. Do you not see the paradox. I'm generalizing here, but I bet a lot of people on that side of the argument are against a lot of other nanny laws. I don't need the government telling me how to raise my kids, or when I should be offended.
You have every right to spout off about or at him, as long as you aren't threatening him, cause then you're breaking the law. "terroristic threatening" they call it here, to sound big after 9/11. But congress wasting time putting out all these "acts"... seeing baseball players before special sessions of congress? BS. Wasting our time and money.
