Make Tide Pod Look ‘Less Appetizing’

Breitbart Big Government, by Katherine Rodriguez

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.

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.

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.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) and ranking committee member Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) each asserted counter-narratives on Saturday over government surveillance of a former Trump campaign advisor. As the White House released a memo produced by Schiff and House Democrats accusing Nunes of doctoring a report on surveillance practices, the committee chairman took center stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). “We actually wanted this out,” said Nunes of Schiff’s memo, adding there is “clear evidence” that Democrats are colluding with “parts of the government” to cover up FISA court abuses. Schiff’s memo claims that Nunes’ report “draws

The House Intelligence Committee on Saturday released a long-awaited Democratic rebuttal to a GOP memo that outlined alleged government surveillance abuses during the 2016 presidential campaign. (Snip) The Democratic rebuttal finds that the FBI had an "independent basis" for investigating Page´s motivations, and that he had been targeted for recruitment by the Russians. It also claims that the DOJ "repeatedly informed the Court about Steele´s background, credibility, and potential bias." It also says that the Justice Department infomed the FISA court that Stelle was hired by "politically-motivated U.S. persons and entities and that his research appeared intended for use "to

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., acknowledged its release at his appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference, at about 4 p.m. (Snip) The Democratic memo says in its first page that "FBI and DOJ officials did not ´abuse´ the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) process, omit material information, or subvert this vital tool to spy on the Trump campaign."

And there’s one consideration driving their thinking perhaps more than any other: what some of his advisers consider the very real, maybe even likely, possibility that Trump doesn’t run again — by choice or not — or that the president becomes so politically hobbled by late next year that the political landscape fundamentally shifts in Kasich’s favor.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel—the man whose agency failed to prevent the Parkland massacre despite having received a tip last November that Nikolas Cruz was plotting a mass shooting—has been accused of public corruption. Two years ago, the Sun Sentinel reported that Israel was rewarding top political supporters by giving them and their family members cushy jobs doing public relations and community outreach for the Broward County Sheriff´s Office. One such position, outreach manager, paid out a salary of $78,489. The person who got that job was the husband of Israel´s campaign manager. Israel had been a Republican but ran

A discussion among students at Oberlin High School in Oberlin, La., about a mathematical symbol led to a police investigation and a search of one of the student’s homes, according to the Allen Parish Sheriff’s Office. On the afternoon of Feb. 20, detectives investigated a report of terroristic threats at the school, where they learned that a student had been completing a math problem that required drawing the square-root sign. Students in the group began commenting that the symbol, which represents a number that when multiplied by itself equals another number, looked like a gun.

A report released Friday claims four of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s deputies waited outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while the attack was occurring. On February 22 Breitbart News reported that one deputy resigned after it was learned that he was on scene but failed to control Nikolas Cruz. Sheriff Israel told ABC 13 that video shows the deputy, Scott Peterson, “arrive at the west side of Building 12” and “take a position” outside the school — but never go inside. The sheriff’s office moved to suspend Peterson, who resigned before the suspension could take place. Now CNN reports

The way Rush Limbaugh sees it, CNN has become so consumed by hatred of President Donald Trump that everyone at the network has full-on descended into madness. The conservative radio host began his Friday show by applauding Trump’s CPAC speech and saying once again that CNN’s town hall on the Parkland shooting was nothing but terrible, nasty, anti-gun mind control. After that, he turned his attention to a CNN piece published Thursday titled “Trump’s language on school shooter’s mental health could be harmful, experts say,” which asserts that Trump and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch are not helping discussions about mental

This strikes me as really pushing for any excuse to attack Trump for any reason whatsoever.

From CNN: (Snip) And although Trump has said he wants to focus on mental health to stop school shootings, calling Cruz a “sicko” doesn’t help, those experts claim… “When it comes to mental health, language really matters.

Two people who work to prepare food for students at New York University have lost their jobs for serving a meal featuring food and beverages believed to be stereotypically associated with black cuisine. The New York Times reports: On Tuesday, a dining hall at New York University advertised a special meal in honor of Black History Month. On the menu? Barbecue ribs, corn bread, collard greens, and two beverages with racist connotations: Kool-Aid and watermelon-flavored water.
