    How many crimes in France have been committed by people wearing burqas?

    Unless they have jet packs.....

    That's it. Women wear burqa's to hide their face and jet packs so they can rob banks and make a quick get away! I knew it!

    What if they WANT to be one cold, expressionless tent of a million? Not everyone in the world cares as much about individualism as most Americans. There are people in THIS country that prefer to blend in instead of stand out (e.g. The Amish). Should their clothing be outlawed as well?

    I don't think anyone would suggest that women want to be honor-killed. The same cannot be said of the burqa.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

You seem to want to justify a bad law through absurd and extreme examples. That does not make for a good basis of law.
    People standing with ski masks outside banks is completely comparable to people wearing Burqa in train stations.

    They're gonna rob the train? What the **** are you even talking about anymore? Do you even know? People wearing ski masks outside a bank=woman wearing a burqa in a train station. I mean, what the hell is wrong with you? Seriously.

    I saw a lady in a burqa in Target last week. I was shocked that no bombs went off.

    Women should strip to their thongs in train stations - just in case.

    This argument is so absurd that it doesn't even require a rebuttal.
