Hijabs allowed in new Minn. driver's license bill
StarTribune ^ | 3/6/09 | AP

A St. Cloud lawmaker says he has changed his bill that would have barred all headwear in driver's license photos to allow for religious headwear.

Rep. Steve Gottwalt says his new bill is a compromise between public safety and cultural respect.

The Republican introduced a bill in 2007 and again this year that would have banned all headwear in driver's license photos to make them easier for law enforcement to use.

Funny, how when we voice our opinions on issues that concern us, we are largely ignored by our lawmakers.....

::::::
Well, a government for-and-by the people, died a long time ago. They only work for themselves and their empowerment over us -— I think the disaster that is the Obama mob, is the ultimate evidence to that fact.

Vote the bastards out. Clean house.

Everybody in the state should wear headgear when renewing their license.

A politician’s headgear is his sphincter, if this guy is any representative of the species.
Question: can you DRIVE with a veil on? NO

Flash forward to the squad room where a victim is viewing a photo line up ... “Yes, that’s her! She’s the one that did it. Numbers 1,3,4,6,and 8.”

How the hell can they see where they are going when they are behind the wheel wearing those damn things?

Make them take a driving test while wearing those head dresses or whatever they are, then let’s talk about a license.

Will female drivers now be allowed to keep their veils on for their driver’s license photos? Wait by implementing sharia law in Minnesota women can’t drive so the problem is solved.

The opinions of normal people don’t count. Legislators care only about the special interest groups.
The people who founded Western Civilization and built it up are not worth [expletive deleted] to them.

That's because your legislators don't imagine that you'd cut off their heads.

Now if they did things would be far different.

How come I can’t have anything hanging from my rear-view mirror by law, but these scumbags can have their faces covered while driving?

Instead of doing it incrementally, why not just do it all in one go and mandate sharia law as the law of the land? We’re headed there anyway.

I’d like to know eggs ackley what is the range of headgear allowed in this law. If it’s a veil, covering the face, no way! But if it’s just a scarf covering the hair (not including mustaches and eyebrows) that’s not too bad. I never saw my Great Grandma Bupko without her headscarf.

There was an article in the Chicago Tribune recently about a young Moslem woman in a surburban high school who plays basketball for her high school dressed completely covered from neck to wrists to ankles and wears a head covering. She said it used to be real difficult until she discovered Under Armor. She’s her team’s leading scorer and is going to college on a basketball scholarship.

Under Armor is ".....form-fitting, moisture-wicking performance apparel ...." ~ so those Moslem boys can just imagine what that girl is like UNDER that Burqua ~ she's hot, sweaty ~ dripping sweat in fact, and performing athletic motions.

Yup, they'll be droppng by the school laundry pick up later to pick up some "used" stuff.

Japanese guys buy used panties from vending machines on the street.

All same thing. Mo can't win this one!

Our Legislature is filled with spineless, sh*t-for-brains
politicians. Is this really any surprise?
All they really care about is increasing taxes & thier per-diem allowances.
