what gets me and still can't grasp it, you see a guy go out buy a half ton/3/4 ton pick-up with wheels and low profile tires, dress in crack of your ass shorts, drink wine coolers, color his hair and so on and so on, now thats being a little strange.

If you owned a business, who would you hire to do a very important job?

Like it or not, someone's looks and behavior DO matter. (and I'm not talking about beauty). You can tell a slacker from a professional pretty damn easy.

Just a few reminders to all.

1) We cannot judge the value of another, God imbued each of us with the same human value, as one of his children.

2)Though we cannot judge the value of another, it is important for each of us to judge the value each person has in our lives. We should strive to invest our lives in time with those that add value to our live, and avoid those that subtract value.

3) Like it or not, external visual, olfactory and auditory cues cause each of us to judge whether or not a person will add or subtract value to out lives.

I put a bandaid on my wrist tattoo in 1990 because I knew "it" would be the deal breaker. I got the job - and "the lady" said OMG you have a tattoo we didn't know. HAHA fool. That humming bird and flowers about the size of a 25 cent piece did not interfere with my job skills. Besides, I still work here too! 24 years!

There's no chance in hell if hire the guy on the left to tattoo me..
Seriously, I doesn't matter to me, if the guy on the right has the qualifications and references to do the job and the guy on the left does not, I'd be putting my company in a bad spot by hiring based solely on looks.

Also, keep in mind that a good amount of our service men and women in their daily lives appear to be well mannered or distinguished. Yet they have far more discipline then most of us.

Judgment is above my pay grade.. I will not live in fear of people based on their appearance.

So you'd hire the wannabe punk rocker over the professional business man? Your choice. Your company probably wouldn't be around long though.

How many people dressed like the punk have you seen working for Fortune 500 companies other than in the lowest positions available? How many CEOs dress like that? Successful salesmen? Doctors? Lawyers? Judges? I'm guessing none.

I'm given to understand Law Enforcement and intel types do that sort of thing all the time. I make no claims at being particularly expert at it, but I figure if someone is assuming a certain appearance and the accompanying mannerisms, there is typically a reason. Deserted parking garage: Would you prefer to be followed by a group of people who look like thugs or a group who look like Mormon missionaries? If this guy came to take your daughter out, tell me you would be OK with it? http://fox13now.com/2012/10/03/accused-cop-killer-pleads-guilty/
+100. At the risk of drawing the ire of some of the anarchists on here, I will say that about 4/5 times I can spot somebody who's got issues (contraband/warrants etc.) in the time it takes me to pass them at a red light or slow roll by them on the sidewalk.

Sure there's also people I never see coming that have issues of their own. And there's always that guy who doesn't have it on him today, hasn't had his warrant put in the system yet or just got out of prison and hasn't had time to do anything else yet. But in general, actions, attitudes, facial expressions, appearances and personal hygiene/equipment maintenance all indicate a BUTTLOAD more than these PC idiots want believed.

Don't drink the kool-aid. If it looks like a crack-ho, acts like a crack ho, and is playing in traffic......

It's probably a crack-ho.
