Two New York state lawmakers are pushing legislation that would ban manufacturers from making laundry detergent pods that look edible. New York City Democrats State Sen. Brad Holyman and Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas introduced legislation Tuesday in Albany that would prohibit manufacturers from making detergent pods that look like candy or other edible items, the Associated Press reported. The bills, proposed in the New York State Assembly and Senate, would require detergent packets to be one color, have packaging that is not see-through, and carry warnings about the risk of poisoning if pods are ingested. “Bright colored detergent pods look like candy, they look

Good. Grief. Democrats doing what they do best. Passing a ridiculous law that will never stop stupidity. All they do is reactionary that never solves any problems but creates more control by the government.

What a brilliant marketing strategy, make your product look as ugly as possible. 1) You could print Schumer´s face on each pod. 2) You could accept the inevitable and make them peppermint flavored to cover that yucky soap taste.

How about passing a bill to get mental health treatment for anyone who would eat one of these pods. Who knows what that might prevent down the line.

My idea was to put Nancy Pelosi´s face on the packets. Make sure she has on bright red lipstick and is smiling. That would scare anyone away.

One possibility that doesn´t seem to have been considered is adding denatonium benzoate, the most bitter substance known, to the detergent capsule. It´s already used in such products as nail polish remover and denatured alcohol to discourage people from consuming them. It´s also the active ingredient in some animal repellents and anti-nail-biting preparations. This substance is vile-tasting enough that nobody should be able to choke one down.

Oh for gosh sakes. For the little kiddies, mom and dad need to keep all things potentially dangerous up and away from little ones. I had child proof latches put on some of my cupboard doors. Form the laundry room I had a high shelf installed for potentially harmful items. Now if the older kids think this is a fun thing partaking of the harmful pod tasting, then let them get a really bad tummy ache or worse. Maybe then they will rethink their foolishness.
As for the lawmakers, is this what the voters sent you to Washing to do???

Require English proficiency for resident aliens.

Stop lottery and chain migration policies and instead adopt a merit based immigration policy based on the Canadian model.

Support remedial English programs in high-need neighborhoods.

Don´t promote students to a higher grade if they haven´t attained the required literacy level.

When people can read the labels, they won´t have to rely on the labels design to figure out what´s inside.

Of course, no self-respecting Democrat would ever vote for any of the above suggested policies. Racist, doncha you know.

Should be a three day waiting period for these pods and they certainly should be locked up and away from the kids. A good pod safety course would be beneficial for owners.

To a child, they look like candy. Even to an unsuspecting adult they can look tasty. They´re convenient because there´s no messy powder or liquid spilling everywhere. Maybe they should put spikes on the surface of the pod to deter consumption.

Paul Manafort wants investigation
into a member of Mueller’s team
Washington Post, by Rachel Weiner    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 5/22/2018 1:06:33 PM     Post Reply
President Trump’s former campaign manager is calling for an investigation into a key lawyer on the special counsel team that is currently prosecuting him in two districts. Attorneys for Paul Manafort filed a motion in Alexandria federal court Monday evening claiming that Andrew Weissmann may have leaked information to the Associated Press in April 2017, before joining Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. At the time, Weissmann led the Department of Justice’s criminal fraud division. Manafort’s lobbying on behalf of a pro-Russian political party in Ukraine had been under investigation by the Justice Department

After former Democratic IT aide Imran Awan allegedly threatened his stepmother not to talk to police, her email account was accessed in suspicious ways and a lawyer for one of Awan’s brothers found out she emailed the FBI on specific dates and lashed out at her: “You’re a liar, aren’t you?” Days after that, a bank account the stepmother controlled was almost completely drained through a payment to Imran’s brother, Abid Awan, bank records show — but she said she is too afraid to press criminal charges because she claims he has threatened her. The stepmother, Samina Gilani, also previously

Washington The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee is pointing to a recent agreement between Justice Department officials and the White House to investigate the use of a confidential source sent to speak with Trump campaign aides as an attack on the department´s independence. "We´re seeing an erosion of the independence of the Justice Department," California Rep. Adam Schiff told CNN´s Suzanne Malveaux Tuesday morning on Capitol Hill. "That is gravely concerning." After a meeting at the White House Monday, top officials at the Justice Department, the FBI and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence agreed to

A prominent human rights activist is suing two of the founders of Fusion GPS and several Venezuelan businessmen under a statute usually associated with the Mafia. Thor Halvorssen, the president of the Human Rights Foundation, claims that Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch, two former Wall Street Journal reporters who founded Fusion, engaged in a conspiracy to retaliate against him for blowing the whistle on one of Fusion’s clients, a Venezuelan power plant company called Derwick Associates. The two Fusion founders were hired to produce a dossier and a media campaign “to depict Halvorrsen as a pedophile, heroin addict, and embezzler of the

Former Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday urged Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI officials to "simply say no" to President Trump´s demand for an expanded investigation into his claims of FBI wrongdoing as it relates to his campaign. "More DOJ norms being eroded. Trump-a SUBJECT of the investigation-wants access to material related to the inquiry," Holder tweeted. (Snip) His latest criticism of the president came as Trump and his allies have claimed, without evidence, that an FBI informant spied on his campaign for political purposes. On Sunday, Trump said he would demand the DOJ investigate the matter.

After about thirteen years of being a loyal customer of Netflix, the time has come for me to say goodbye. (Snip) Given that I’m a conservative, one might be inclined to believe my choice to leave Netflix is predicated upon the company’s most recent decision to partner with Barack and Michelle Obama’s new company, called “Higher Ground Productions,” to produce loads of new content. And in a way, I guess that’s correct. But this choice by Netflix has not alone led me to this decision. Rather, this was the straw that finally broke the camel’s back -- the latest in a series of indicators that the network has become little more than a

Pope Francis has reportedly told a gay man that "God made you that way and loves you as you are," apparently pushing the pontiff´s acceptance of homosexuality to a new level. Francis made the comments to Juan Carlos Cruz, a Chilean victim of priestly sexual abuse who recently spent days with the pope at the Vatican to discuss his ordeal as the pontiff moves to tackle decades of coverups and ostracism of victims in the Chilean church, according to the Spanish newspaper El Pais. Cruz was quoted as having discussed his homosexuality with Francis. "He told me: ´Juan Carlos, I

At the end of all the scandal and drama, all of the breathlessly reported lies and false accusations, at the end of all the money wasted on some zany kabuki swamp dance choreographed to the thrumming of giant bullfrogs and yipping of excited coyotes — at the end of all of this — it comes down to precisely what we said it was a year and a half ago. The Obama administration — with or without the knowledge and direction of President Obama himself — perverted one of the most powerful, clandestine spying operations in the world and used it at the very height of a presidential campaign to spy on political opponents,
