    So there are now directly contradictory articles on what the officers found.

    DPS officers outside the Senate gallery and at each entrance to the Capitol told The Texas Tribune they had not seen or found jars containing feces or urine, and multiple officers throughout the Capitol said they had not heard of any jars being found until a reporter mentioned it. Several officers also said they had not heard anything on the DPS radio system about jars of any excrement.

    Yet you choose to believe the story in which the finding of feces is true over the story in which the officers were asked to comment on that story. Why is that, I wonder?

    Supposedly the Texas legislature heard from somewhere that they might be possibly used to disrupt the proceedings. So my question is, do you find this action justifiable?




    I don't believe that anything that the GOP does in Texas could ever surprise me.

    Re: Was This Acceptable?

    I think it's "acceptable", since they have a right to regulate whatever products they wish with regard to what enters the building, but I also think it's incredibly stupid, and not just because of the appearance it gives.

    They are soft, cottony things. They are not a real threat. Granted, it makes some sense to confiscate them because the people involved in that decision look like a bunch of giant ****ing pussies for being worried about it.

    I can't help but wonder if men had any packs of condoms they may carry in their wallets confiscated also?

    Let me get this straight..

    By referencing castle doctrine, you are referring to an unborn child as the equivalent of a home invader?

    So you think the guns should be banned then?

    If you read the preceding posts (hard, I know, but maybe you'd get it), someone was busy justifying how it's better to allow guns than maxi-pads.

    Stuff like this belongs in the conspiracy theory forum.

    I shouldn't laugh though, my state has produced such luminaries as Darrell Issa, Maxine Waters and Barbara Boxer.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.
