This is a bad idea.
Clearly if people with differing genitals or gender identities or abilities use the same bathroom there will be a tear in the time space continuum and there may be a terrible paradox that will eventually lead to the heat death of the whole universe.
chiefnek-o is right and I am sick of seeing this on my dash. Maybe before people start acting all high and mighty they should think of the ramifications of this sign. If people are allowed to go into bathrooms, they will pee in there. Is that what you want? Well, is it? What is going to happen to our freedoms, our rights and our children if people are allowed to pee in restrooms? See, you haven’t thought this through at all, have you? Oh my goodness, I just realized there was a person in a wheelchair in that picture. So people in wheelchairs deserve to pee now? Is that what you’re trying to force onto me? Try not pushing your lefty, pinko, commie, socialist, vegan, feminist, hug a puppy agenda on me. No! Not while I still have a breath left in my body will I allow a world where people are going into bathrooms and peeing.
THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!
Elizabeth Warren = Most awesome human being on the planet.
Wall Street doesn’t just dislike Warren, they FEAR her! I look forward to watching her over the coming years. I just hope the Democratic Party can grow a set and properly back her up! Sadly, there’s been no evidence of those balls for the past 12 years, and our President definitely doesn’t have them.
Oh, you don’t want me to lead your consumer protection panel? Cool, I’ll run for senate and wind up grilling Wall St. there.
I love her.
The suit states that as Nestle expanded production of Poland Spring water, the company began digging supply wells and using nearby groundwater, much of which had high potential for contamination.
One of Poland Spring’s sources, Garden Spring, taps into a common aquifer underneath a gravel pit eight miles away from the site of Poland Spring. According to the complaint, the well is not located deep in the woods of Maine as Nestle advertises, but in a parking lot along the side of a road used by hundreds of trucks and cars daily.
According to the complaint, hydro-geologists hired by Nestle found that another current source for Poland Spring water near the original site stands over a former trash and refuse dump, and below an illegal disposal site where human sewage was sprayed as fertilizer for many years. The suit argues similar contamination problems were found with other sources of Poland Spring.
Water & Wastes Digest, “Nestle Sued for Falsely Advertising Poland Spring Water”
While this 2003 lawsuit was settled, the company still continues to use the same sources for bottled water after agreeing to step up quality controls and pay $10 million over the course of five years in discounts to consumers and contributions to charities.
How is this relevant? Well, it’s the brand of choice for Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. who grabbed a huge gulp of Poland Spring while delivering the GOP’s State of the Union response. Considering he said, “When we point out that no matter how many job-killing laws we pass, our government can’t control the weather — [Obama] accuses us of wanting dirty water and dirty air,” I’m assuming he’d like to know what this private sector corporation discovered in their own water. I also thought he’d be interested in the lack of regulation to keep Poland Spring and Nestle from bottling water from above a trash dump and below a field treated with human shit, and selling it as “pristine spring water” that “tastes just like it did when we found it.” Somehow, I doubt that.
tl;dr version: Yeah, there could be poop in that. But it’s okay, because it’s private sector poop!
here’s a screen cap of a correspondence between a woman named telisha cobb and senator campfield, who is at the forefront of tennessee’s “don’t say gay” bill (actually called the classroom protection act), a bill which would require teachers, counselors, etc. to inform parents if their children are gay, or even if they ~appear~ to be gay. (here is some more information about it.) she posted it on her facebook (easier to read!) and is urging others to share it so the word can get out about what an unbelievable asshole this dude is (if it wasn’t already obvious enough).
in case you’re having trouble reading the screen cap, it says:
I am writing to you as a mother, active citizen and born & raised Tennessean. You are an embarrassment to our great state. Folks all over the country and here in Tennessee are looking at the bills that you are proposing in shock. They are the most ignorant and morally lacking legislation that could be proposed this year. It is clear that you are targeting homosexuals and low income families with hogwash legislation. You need to search your heart, your values and your Christianity to find a better way to represent us as a whole. We will do everything in our power to make sure you are not here in 2014. There are numerous grass root parties that are making their voices heard.
his super classy response to her email reads:
You seem to have some serious, deep anger issues. Have you ever thought about therapy? I hear they are doing some wonderful things with medication these days.
Yours in service,
Sen. Stacey Campfield
like come on. you’ve gotta be kidding me here.
so! if you wouldn’t mind reblogging this and spreading the word, that would be great! telisha wants others to spread this around as much as they possibly can. this is a totally inappropriate and unprofessional way of addressing criticism and more people need to know about this dude and what he’s trying to pull.
