Maybe given what's going on at the state level regarding abortion, he should focus on his party's attempts to sneak into women's bodies and clog their uteri.

He's right. I'm off to the store to get a vat of benzene to clean the freaking mold of my driveway.

Can you pick me up some asbestos while you're there? I want to reinsulate my hot water tank.

No, that whould be the brown river trout I dropped in there yesterday.

At least with the new government-mandated light bulbs I won't be able to see stuff my government-mandated toilet won't flush.

that's what I was thinking... did this republican actually go on an tirade on how anti-choice this lady is?

She really should have called him out on it.

PS. The government not only restricts my choice of toilets and lightbulbs, it also restricts my choice of drugs. I'd rather have Rand Paul working on legalizing some drugs.

He's right. We have a God given right to do whatever we want whenever we want, and our actions never have any consequences beyond our immediate self. The government has no right to make so called "laws" dictating what people may or may not do.

Like RAND PAUL, I also believe paint chips taste better if they contain lead. They're not as crispy for one thing, and they're a snack that really sticks with you.

Unfortunately in the real world, where things don't flush like they do in the movies, it can take three, four, or, in the case of my wife, Peggy Hill, six flushes to completely remove solid waste.

So Rand Paul is too stupid to operate a toilet, who knew?!?!?

You really think he meant sexual behavior? I highly doubt it. He was probably biatching about the "do not remove" tags on mattresses.

This is why you get in the habit of pooping at work.

Toilets? Tea baggers use toilets?

I read they swore off in case someone used pages from Atlas Shrugged as toilet paper.

Lead paint also helps to stop my neighbor from stealing my wireless bandwidth. Why does the EPA want my neighbor to steal from me?

As an anecdote, my two experiences with old style toilets with a 5 or more gallon tank is one of clogs. Modern toilets do the job far better -- but that might just be because those old ones were connected to drain pipes as old as they were.

If Rand wants one of those things, they're out there.

If he has that problem, he bought the wrong farking toilets.

Got the Toto Sanagloss with the Ultramax II flushing when I did my remodel a few years back. Buy crap and you won't get rid of your crap.... simple as that.

LOL. That and the episode on transfats. Paraphrasing:

Bobby: Dad...what are transfats?

Hank: Well, Bobby, transfats are what they put in food to make it delicious.

As a person who regularly drops boulders that challenge commercial facilities and would probably horrify the likes of even Jessica Simpson, I freely share my acquired wisdom: BUY A QUALITY TOILET. My low flow toilet does what my previous higher flow crapper could not. They're not hard to install, and you can give your old one's to your hillbilly friends to shoot up.

No, I don't think he was talking about sexual behavior either, but I just thought it was ironic that he mentioned the bedroom. I think Rand Paul is a joke, and we should point at him and laugh as much as possible while he's in office.

That's true. I bought some cheap toilet for a bathroom remodel that had a "pressure-assisted" function on it. The toilet was supposed to use the pressure from the water line to help flush things, like a jet. Yeah, THAT didn't work, but it DID spray water all over the goddamn bathroom.

I took it back and paid good money for a Koehler. Works great.
 
2011-03-11 10:58:09 AM
Damn liberals. I'm perfectly capable of clogging any toilet, anywhere, any time, and I don't need any government help.

A rich dude says he can't find an efficient toilet that flushes well? I call no way. Even the low-end high-efficiency Totos operate remarkably. Maybe buying from the shiatty selection on display at Home Depot is the bootstrappy Real America thing to do, but seriously, if the guy has the money he should buy a decent toilet. (Though I guess then he doesn't get to complain).

2011-03-11 11:03:01 AM
We ought to be using dual flow toilets. Tiny flush for grey water. Normal flush for solid waste. More efficient and reliable than low flow toilets.

I'd like to once again thank the sister farking hillbillies from Kentucky for electing this guy to the senate, if only because he will tak advantage of every opportunity to expose his insanity )and by extension, the insanity of libertarianism) to the nation well in advance of his eventual but short-lived presidential run.

Is there any Republican idea/speech/policy initiative/talking point/marketing slogan these days that isn't an appeal to pet peeves??

Help me out, I'm having trouble thinking of any.
 
2011-03-11 11:04:39 AM
Is... is this it?

This is the big, scary boogeyman that the "Right" is fighting?

This is what the anti-choice crap all boils down to? You want to be able to buy "Cheap shiat X" over "Cheap shiat Y" and because someone comes along with a VERY reasonable explanation as to why X is bad enough to warrant regulation, you think THAT is the evidence of the government taking choice?

Am I missing something? Their are questions as to the fundamental nature of rights, as to the definition of a person and as to the very nature of the society we wish to have, and people honestly give a crap about light bulbs?! We are currently ACTIVELY engaged in TWO wars of conquest with no end in sight... and light bulbs are what you wanna get up in arms about?! We have a legal system becoming more and more seperated by class and wealth, restricted to all but those who can afford it, and you think that water regulation is what is harming this country?!

(Five minutes of violent and impassioned ranting omitted for good taste)

I...I... I don't want to insult people with broad strokes, I don't want to stereo-type... but if you view this as an "important debate"... then you and I just don't see eye to eye. Regulation is one of the roles of government, and while you might disagree with certain specifics (low flow toilets) that is not the same thing as being "anti choice" or "anti consumerism". Smog checks on my car are "anti choice" by that measure, as is the USDA and its "grading" systems; not to mention health inspectors in restaurants.

Yes, it is the role of government to implement effective regulation and enforce said regulation. With the increase in population and the growing awareness about pollution, I really just don't understand how people can be so upset about water regulation. Were people this pissed off when leaded gas went away?

Oh, another liberal turd asking for help. Can't you shiat stains do anything on your own? Always with the helping hand, wanting a free shake.

"No, that whould be the brown river trout I dropped in there yesterday."

This....had to disassemble a toilet a couple of days ago and go after it with a water hose after my teenage son crapped a baseball. He's paying me back by washing and waxing my truck.

The "Al Gore" toilet thing is a good example of unintended consequences. Usually have to flush 3 times now since we got our toilets replaced a while back as opposed to a single time. But, we're "green" now in terms of the porcelin (sp?) god.
 
2011-03-11 11:12:49 AM
Actually the toilet thing does annoy the hell out of me too. The "efficient" toilets in my home mean that if I wipe more than 2 times I have to flush twice.

Look, I'm not even on city water, I have my own well. If I want a toilet of such power and flushing magnitude that it can put out a lit match I really don't think it's anyone's business but my own.

Actually, I have had similar experiences. My parents have older toilets that use a lot more water but just don't seem to apply it well. They fill up the bowl, but the water's relatively placid.

If you eat according to the USDA food pyramid, your waste will be compatible with government-mandated toilets.

They've thought this through.

"These things you want us to buy are often made in foreign countries. You ship jobs overseas. The same thing your administration claims to be in favor of, you're shipping jobs overseas by saying we can't make these items over here."

We COULD make these items here, but the Free Hand of the Market™ says it's in a company's best interest to outsource. We could put in regulations and stuff to make imported goods either too expensive or too troublesome to import, but then you'd just complain about the government interfering with business.

...and that's why you and every other nutjob conservative is such a goddamn tool, Mr. Paul.
