    When the toilets don't flush and are overflowing, the last thing I'm thinking about is how many people have been killed by tampons.

    Funny thing is that people HAVE actually died from tampons. Toxic shock syndrome. The info about it is always included in the pamphlet inside the box of tampons. Lol. Just thought I'd throw that in there for the heck of it.

    Forget calling it theft. Robbery is theft by threat or force and that's what you're saying happened right? So security actually committed felony robbery. Those people were robbed.

    I don't... think he knows what tampons are for.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    Theft by force or threat is actually robbery.

I had my nail file taken out of my purse and temporarily confiscated when I entered a court house before, and there were no signs specifying that my nail file could be taken.

    This is their government at work. They have a right to watch without having personal items pointlessly confiscated without any advance warning.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I beat the OP feels pretty stupid about now that his left wing so called news organization failed to mention the crap and piss, this is a prime example we have these left wing knuckle heads come to this forum so misinformed and looking foolish
    Well I suppose the opposition would do what rightwingers advocate and bring loaded guns to the proceeding. After all I heard so much about how Republicans would consider "2nd amendment solutions" so maybe women should start doing the same. After all Texas allows for it. Nothing potentially disruptive about that.

    No, I don't think so. Nobody said "your tampons or your life."

    Menstruation and Toxic Shock Syndrome
    Veering off subject, there was a local celebrity wrestler here in Dallas that got that.

    200px-Mike_Von_Erich.jpg

    Mike was married on February 14, 1985, to Shani Garza.[1] He underwent shoulder surgery on August 22, 1985, due to an injury suffered during a wrestling tour of Israel; he was involved in a tag match against Hernandez and Adams with his brother Kevin when his shoulder "went out." He was released from the hospital in good condition, but four days later he developed a fever of 107 degrees. He was later diagnosed with toxic shock syndrome, a rarity among men; it is theorized that this resulted from his surgery, which was performed by Dr. Stonie R. Cotton at Brookhaven Hospital in Dallas, Texas.

    When you enter any governmental building the security officials CAN conduct a search and seize your property, if they have a reasonable belief that it would be used for any kind of assault. The fourth amendment only applies if it is considered unreasonable.
