Is the big picture always in focus? Do we take our eye off the main focus and prize? Are the tiny mo hills getting in the way?

You know I have had it up to hear with some things in this lifetime. I am so serious and mean this from the bottom of my heart!!! Law makers (men) have come up with some of the silliest and craziest things…..And trust and believe I know why certain laws were produced and made to protect us. And I appreciate that very much. Because those are the laws that need to really be enforced, they make pure sense! But when you start taking things to an entirely different level. And you are telling me someone can literally go to jail, or pay a huge fine. This is where the problem comes in for me. Let me give you some examples.

In Los Angeles, you cannot bathe two babies in the same tub at the same time.

In Los Angeles, a man is legally entitled to beat his wife with a leather belt or strap, but the belt can't be wider than 2 inches, unless he has his wife's consent to beat her with a wider strap. What???? Are you serious?

In Denver it is unlawful to lend your vacuum cleaner to your next-door neighbor.

In Hartford, Conn., you aren't allowed to cross a street while walking on your hands.

Is this…are they for real???? Come on! Stop it!

It is illegal to say "Oh, Boy" in Jonesboro, Georgia. Now who made this stupid law?

But when you make silly and stupid laws as what I have given you. I feel that the silliness and bureaucracy of law makers are at times challenged. And mentally challenged in the head if you ask me. So here is the scenario, I was placed on assignment from my job to go to a foreign country and interview an actor who had become quite popular there. I had seen a few of his movies. And though I had to read the subtitles, I must say that he was a very dramatic actor. I was also to report on the countries culture, the locals, the cuisine, etc. etc. I was to be over there for two weeks. So I was going to take my fiancé with me. It would be like a mini vacation for the both of us. We were being put up in this posh villa with all the amenities and our own cook and maid. I was already loving this!

So as I always do before I go out on an assignment. I do some research on the city, country. So that I do not say or do anything to offend the natives of the country. Find out where are the best places to eat, dance, popular places to go to soak up the local flavor. Things like that.

My fiancé was due for his vacation. And we were looking at some exotic places to get married at. We were not really looking to have a huge wedding at all. For those who we knew could afford to travel and could schedule the time to come to the wedding. Of course our parents would be there and fully involved. We were going to have an extravagant reception and play the video of our wedding at our reception for those who could not attend. And when I had done the research and showed Walton what the country looked like, he was impressed and placing this place at the top of our list. I was really getting excited.

Now as I researched and Walton had researched the country he had found a very interesting law. He had called me the day before we were to leave.

“Hey hun, how you doing?’
“I’m good love. You?”

“I am wonderful.” And then he had began to laugh.

“Okay, what is so funny?”

“I just came across something very interesting, Something I thought you needed to know.”

“Okay. Shoot.”

“There is a law that Milavado has. And that is all the women must wear under garments at all times. It says here that women that do not adhere to this law will be penalized to the fullest extent of the law and pay a fine of up to $5,000. From what I am gathering here is. This can stem in doing jail time.” And he fell out laughing again.

“Are you serious?”

“Yes quite.”

“You are playing.”

“Not at all babe. So if you plan on going on this trip, I suggest that you go out and buy you some under ware.”

“You gotta be kidding me!”
“Baby you know this is extremely funny to me. But I am as serious as a heart attack.”

“So how in the heck do they know if a woman is wearing under garments are not?”

“I have no idea. But I remember when you and I had looked up all types of odd laws certain states and countries had that made no sense. Well to us anyways. And with this you can be fully prosecuted.”

“I do not….”

“I know you do not wear panties. And I love it. I think it is sexy, never had a problem with it. But they do and this is no joke at all.”

“But it is my choice, my personal choice…..”

“Baby….baby hold up.”

“I will not!”

“Yes you will calm down.”

“So what will they do? Look up under my dress? Or tell me to pull my pants down to see if I am wearing any?”

“Hey I don’t know.” And he started laughing again.

I was now on a quest to find out who made the law. Why the law was put into existence. And who was the silly MAN who had decided that all women had to wear panties or be prosecuted with jail time and fines. And was this indeed a law like the others that was made but not enforced. Because to me it seemed pretty odd and silly to me someone would make such a stupid and …..let me calm down. Because I lived in California , I knew of some silly laws and had questioned the ones they had. Cars are the only item allowed in a garage. Now how many people do you know have only cars in their garage? This is a law in the city of Long Beach. And in Los Angeles, you may not hunt moths under a street light. Do you see where I am going with this? Who is enforcing these laws and how?

I was up all night doing research on this law. Because it was my personal very personal choice not to wear panties. I have not worn panties since I had graduated from high school. And it was not like I sat across from my clients and gave them a peep show like Sharon Stone did in Basic Instinct. I wasn’t flashing people on streets, at bars, clubs or even restaurants. I just enjoyed the freedom of being free. Of being uninhibited. I felt liberated to a certain extent you could say. Did some men make comments? I really couldn’t tell you, because I never had a strange man that I did not know walk up to me and ask me, “Do you have on panties?” Just like I didn’t walk up to a strange person and ask them,” Umm, did you bathe today?”

There maybe some things people say and do that we may or may not like. And that is what I love so much about being an American. The freedom that we have. Freedom of choice to vote, marry, live, drive, work where we want to. If some of the laws that I have found out about in various states as trivial as they are. There should be laws that should be forced and made for people to do. Like brush your teeth, and you can not come outside if your breath smells. And oh, I love this. There should be a law in every state that states anyone who holds a job should NEVER come into work reeking of foul body odor. No let me change that. Anyone who comes out in public should bathe! How about that? Instead of a silly law that states in Los Angeles, toads may not be licked.????

Where do we draw the line? What politician came up with this malarkey? Was he smoking something? On something? Drinking? Tripping out in his office with his friends and said, “Hey, let’s think of some stupid outlandish laws and see if congress passes them.” And passing a joint to his fellow mates. And they all are laughing and agreeing with him. Tell me what drug or drink they were having when they passed these laws. The senate and those in congress and the legislators that said, “Hey works for me!” I would like to know the drug they were alllll doing. Because that is a drug I do not want to do and want to band from being brought to the states!

Because in Los Angeles zoot suits are prohibited. But this is 2008, and who in the hell is going to wear a zoot suit? And why? Was wearing a zoot suit back in the day a crime? Did it represent some sorted bad background? Now I am aware that in Georgia and Louisiana about the “sagging law” You can not wear your pants low, or under your buttocks. Which, well, that is a law I would like to see enforced. If only some of the young men and boys only knew what sagging your pants actually meant. If you were in prison and you sagged your pants. It meant that you were “available” And what am saying? That you were open to have any man take you and have their way with you. It meant you were gay. So are all of these young men and boys gay? I beg to differ. But who wants to see that? Your under ware?

But this is about my right not to wear panties. My choice, I was offending no one! No one at all! And I was going to be prosecuted to the law and pay a huge fine if I did not wear panties.

Well, needless to say after making phone calls. And really checking out this law that was made in 1970 was due in part to a woman that was in public. A homeless woman who was diagnosed with psychotic behavior had made her way in front of city hall ranting and raving. Arms flaying in the air, making gibberish talk no one could understand. She was wearing a short dress and had no panties on. And she had no shame that she had none on. Now if this woman had a mental issue, and was homeless as well. Why would her display get the lawmakers to propose a law for all women to have on panties? She did not have all of her full faculties. And when the police came, they apprehended her of course and took her to a mental hospital.

Now the funny thing about all of these laws I have found out. That when it really comes to the bottom line or wire if I may. Some laws should have been passed in many states and countries a loooooong time ago against certain offenders that commit crimes against people. Why does something always bad or erratic have to happen for someone to make a law up? Please tell me this? The Amber alert for example should have been in existence a long time ago. Why did a child by the name of Amber have to be kidnapped and murdered for her parents to go to congress and pass this law? And it took awhile for the legislators to make it so. Missing children that have been abducted have been going on for years and years! Why was the law fully prosecuted recently not to have pedophiles live in proximity of a school? That should have been done years ago! Do you get my point? Me not wearing panties is not hurting anyone! Not one soul! It hasn’t hurt me all these years, so why would it hurt or offend someone else who may and may not know. Or even pay attention that I have no under garments on. And though these young guys do take the sagging to an unbelievable high. And it is bothersome to see. Why are lawmakers pressing the issue?………….





I wrote this piece for a purpose. Though the content was at first humorous. My point to this is……get out an vote!!!!!! And if there are not laws that are established that should be. You be the person to take it to congress and have it become a law, and not vote or let your lawmakers pass things that will and can not help us as a whole. Because some things are totally blown out of proportion. If you would like to see and view some of the silly laws that are in effect in our country.
