    Oh come on, the pauls are the biggest political joke in america. Even they won't vote for themselves. the only people who follow them are a bunch of hipsters who think that rand and ron are actually libertarians. Neither are, they are just really pathetic republicans who cannot even best herman cain. Which is sad for them considering how much of a pair of racist twits they are.

    Post noted because this is the first time I've seen a left winger admit blacks can be racist too.

    Please prove Ron Paul didn't vote for himself. Or hell, that he ever even remotely had trouble winning his district, over and over, versus any misguided fool presenting a primary challenge let alone the hapless members of America's socialist party.

    Rand Paul handily won his primary for Senate and handily won office.

    And "racist twits?" Oh, come on. This is just inflammatory nonsense from you, brony, and you know it.

I mean, c'mon, folks...how difficult can it be to drive down to the nearest Lowe's, Home Depot, Sears or some mom and pop hardware store and purchase the toilet you like that you can install yourself?

    Good grieve... Rand Paul is certainly a piece of .... work. (Ha, Ha! You thought I was gonna say something else, didn't you? It does make one wonder, though...are Rand Paul's poops that big he needs some specially made toilet to flush them? )
    Yeah, Mo Brooks is so much better

    As I'm fond of saying, "a little perspective goes a long way".

    The "American Standard" for low-flow toilets clearly has a purpose - to conserve water and reduce waste. However, there's no federal law that I'm aware of that precludes a homeowner from going out and purchasing and subsequently installing a different style of toilet in their home. Want a bidet? Go buy the darn thing and have it installed. Want a different type of toilet that has a higher flush rate? Go find it at your local hardware store or importer, if necessary, and have it installed.

    Most of the toilets in American homes are installed based on industry homebuilding standards. It is a baseline standard, not an "all or nothing" standard. Folks who have a problem with this need to get over it and just canvasse the free market and buy whatever is legally available and have the toilet of their choice installed and be done with the stupidity!

    More than half means less than 50% of homes had toilet trouble. So that could mean the 48% did. Since it is a pro-low flow study conclusion, if the survey was that only 1% of homes had a problem they would have reported it that way. It doesn't even say less than 1/4. Just more than half. Half is 50%.
    You are cherry picking the article let me help you read it

    170 Tucson households where low-flow toilets had been installed seven years earlier. Among their findings: (1) more than half the homes had no detectable toilet trouble; (2) about 11 percent of the low-flows got double-flushed at least once a day, somewhat but not much more than the rate seen for higher-volume models; (3) low-flows were seemingly more prone to developing flapper leaks; and (4) in over a quarter of the homes at least one of the low-flows was using significantly more than the 1.6 GPF it was meant to, whether because of malfunction or tampering.
    Does that help you, You get what you pay for if you purchase a cheap low flow or cheap regular toilet you will probably have difficulty. As far as physical size the toilets will accommodate even the well endowed without the fishing experience. R Paul needs to get his plumbing checked there is a problem other then his toilet.

    He's a buffoon. Why is he a buffoon? You'd have to ask him. He takes wacked out far right positions on just about every social issue. He's a Libertarian, of course, but he doesn't have the guts to run as one. Although, there really isn't a dime's worth of difference between the TeaPublicans and the Libertarians, so I suppose it doesn't make much difference.

    Yeah, he won his primary and his election, but this is Kentucky, for God's sake.

    Some would say "special" in the "special needs" way.
