Environmentalists have a new
target: Charmin toilet paper

Consumer goods giant Procter & Gamble faces pressure from environmentalists to clean up its act. More than 150 groups are pushing the maker of Charmin toiler paper and Bounty paper towels to use recycled materials in its products. Currently, neither of those products uses recycled paper, and about one-third of it is sourced from Canada's boreal forest — a large swath of virgin forest that rings the Arctic Circle and acts as a critical check on climate change. "It's just unacceptable that a company like P&G is making toilet paper, a product that is used for seconds and flushed, from virgin pulp,"

Time to start buying more Charmin and Bounty to offset these idiots' efforts.

That's it!, they can't touch the Charmin. Pulp lumber is grown like a crop.

Again..... trees are a cash crop. They are literally grown and harvested like corn. Recycling paper is a huge waste of time and resources just to virtue signal. If you want to recycle paper, mulch it or burn it for energy.

Well if all these maroons who are concerned over global-warming-climate-change-climate-disruption would just change back to old corn cobs the "crisis" would be much less threatening. Problem solved for everybody. Go ahead, all you Chicken Little climate alarmists. Show us how its done.

A critical check on climate change? I thought we were all doomed in 11 years but if stop wiping my hindquarters with Charmin I could make a difference? I thought Cheryl Crow had this one covered years ago.

"and acts as a critical check on climate change" -- oh, bull. In reply to the environmentalists' assertion that it's unacceptable to make toilet paper from virgin pulp, I can hardly think of something more appropriate to make out of virgin pulp than tissues for wiping the nose or butt (uses that call for maximal softness and strength - properties for which I specifically look to buy the Charmin).

Proctor and Gamble now is taking it from the left. The right hurt them badly after that Gillette toxic masculinity advertisement. I made an effort to avoid using P&G products after Gillette catered approach to the snowflakes at the expense of American men. As such, I found a toilet tissue softer than Charmin, and that is Cottonelle.

Fun fact: Charmin toilet paper is made in Green Bay, Wisconsin, who besides the Packers, has the title of "Toliet Paper Capital of the World." As a friend of mine who lives there reminds me, Green Bay will always have a good economy because (1) we all need toilet paper (2) it's not easy to open a toilet paper factory because of environmental issues and (3) any time they've tried to import toilet paper from China, the rolls arrive crushed.

Once again, these groups are showing their ignorance and stupidity about a product. Where I used to live, a great deal of land was given over to the pulp tree crops. These people hate working people so much they don't care to learn actual facts and reality about farming. All they do is spew the nonsense their puppet masters tell them to spew.

If you have a septic system, you're much better off using Scott. My plumber years ago told me to stop buying the soft, pretty, luxury toilet tissue. It doesn't break down as quickly or as efficiently.

There's no doubt that over/under has been solved. Rolls with designs on them are printed to show with the roll 'over'. The lower hanging part wouldn't be visible if hung under.

NEW ORLEANS – On Saturday morning, structural engineer Walter Zehner’s phone rang with news of a devastating construction collapse on a site he once worked. The plan for 1031 Canal St. had completely changed since Zehner left the project approximately three years ago, moving from a mixed use retail/residential design to what was planned to be a Hard Rock Hotel. When Zehner arrived at the downtown construction site Saturday, he saw six to eight concrete levels had collapsed, the edges hanging down the side of the building as if they’d melted. “It was a lot worse than I could have imagined,” Zehner said. “And I’ve seen the videos of the collapse

Why are we so eager to search out scapegoats for the injustices of history? Whatever the reason, Christopher Columbus is now the fall guy for the sins of slavery, the exploitation of indigenous peoples, the rape of natural resources and most of the legal, financial and territorial abuses that followed the first European steps in the New World. His accusers want to eliminate Columbus Day and replace it with Indigenous Peoples Day. Columbus is a 15th-century man in a 21st-century court, and the jury is stacked with self-righteous, injured parties who have 20-20 hindsight. Vilifying him won’t change the unfairness of history, but it will delegitimize

Elizabeth Warren has a moving story about being fired from a teaching job because she was pregnant, a story that perfectly complements her political narrative that she is the tribune and champion of those who have been treated unfairly by the powerful. Joe Biden has a moving — and horrifying — story about his wife and daughter being killed by a drunk driver, a story that similarly could not have been designed more perfectly to bolster his political image as a man who can be counted on to soldier on in the face of adversity. Of course, neither story is true. Are we still caring about that sort of thing?

Nearly a week after the U.S. announced its decision to pull out troops from northern Syria to make way for a Turkish incursion, Kurdish forces in the country have reportedly agreed to a new deal with Damascus in a desperate bid to face off against Ankara's offensive. The New York Times reported that the deal-- which was announced Sunday evening-- would enable President Bashar al-Assad's forces to attempt to regain a foothold in the country's northeast. The Kurdish fighters had few options after the United States abandoned them, and it had been anticipated they would turn to Assad’s government for support.

Retired Army Master Sgt. Mark Allen died on Saturday, 10 years after he was shot while looking for a missing soldier in Afghanistan back in 2009. He was 46. Allen was unable to walk or speak since being shot in the head by a sniper in July 2009 during his attempted search for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who walked off his base in Afghanistan and was imprisoned by the Taliban for five years. Bergdahl later pled guilty and was dishonorably discharged, reduced in rank from sergeant to private and fined $1,000 per month over a ten-month period for deserting his post and endangering the lives of fellow soldiers, including Allen.
The case for identifying the whistleblower 3 replies

The identity of the person who filed the intelligence community whistleblower complaint that sparked the drive to impeach President Trump remains a secret. Democrats leading the impeachment campaign say his or her identity (for brevity, the whistleblower will hereafter be referred to as "he") must remain closely guarded. Advocates of whistleblower laws, such as Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, agree. The New York Times came under heavy criticism when it reported that the whistleblower is a CIA officer. "Any decision to report any perceived identifying information of the whistleblower is deeply concerning and reckless, as it can place the individual in harm's way," Andrew Bakaj, the whistleblower's lawyer, told the Times.

Pope Francis spent a brief period of his Jesuit formation in Germany. He was sent there to get a doctorate in theology, but, finding the work tedious and feeling homesick, he returned to Buenos Aires. He once told a fellow Jesuit that studying “fundamental theology” is “boring” — a bizarre attitude for a churchman that explains his intellectually slipshod pronouncements. Not that Francis doesn’t revere German theologians. He does, exceedingly so, particularly heretical ones. During the conclave that elected him, he stayed in a room across from Walter Kasper, the German cardinal famous for his project to liberalize and Protestantize the Church from top to bottom.

I wrote here and here that, although the Democrats’ impeachment claims are frivolous, they have hurt President Trump in the polls. Trump’s history is that he tends to rise in the polls until a negative news cycle hits–which happens often–and then he will drop back down. In the latter post, I noted that before the impeachment frenzy struck, Trump had been rising in the Rasmussen survey. He was at 53% approval among likely voters as of September 24, a number that if maintained suggests a clear path to re-election. The coupling of the words “Trump” and “impeachment” in newspaper headlines–the real purpose of the Democrats’ impeachment drive–drove

And that rise will likely continue, since she is bound to benefit from Bernie Sanders’ health crisis. She and Sanders have spent the year so far splitting the progressive Democratic vote, and his heart attack last week, as well as the three days of prevaricating his campaign did about it, will likely hasten his polling decline.

Madison, Wis.—The nation's largest independent spice retailer is peppering Facebook with ads calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Wisconsin-based Penzeys Spices spent nearly $100,000 on Facebook ads last week calling for Trump's impeachment, making it one of the largest social media spenders on impeachment to date. Facebook says Penzeys spent nearly $96,000 on ads supporting impeachment between Oct. 4 and Oct. 10. The Wisconsin State Journal reports Tuesday that one post generated 257,000 reactions, 55,000 comments and 45,000 shares. House Democrats are pursuing an impeachment inquiry to investigate Trump's suggestion that Ukraine investigate the business dealings of Joe Biden's

A new report by the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee reaffirms what the White House refuses to accept: Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help then-candidate Donald Trump and to hurt his presidential rivals. The findings are alarming for the breadth of Russia’s operation, the Kremlin’s direct involvement and the ongoing threat posed by foreign meddling to American democracy. But perhaps more than anything, the report amounts to a bipartisan rebuke of the White House’s own disinformation campaign to shift the blame away from Russia. The committee, chaired by Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., released a second report this week that furthered the findings of America’s intelligence community

News broke yesterday morning that Hunter Biden has officially stepped down from the board of directors of a Chinese-backed private equity company. Additionally, he made a public promise that if his father, Joe Biden, wins the presidency, he will "forego all foreign work." Quite a lot to unpack here. Firstly, he's missing the point entirely. While President Trump's Ukraine phone call shined a bright light on Joe and Hunter Biden's corruption, the outrage was never about him working for a foreign company. It was about how he got those positions in the first place — with his father's power and status in the U.S. government.
