People are full-on triggered by Trump’s
bathroom talk: ‘People are flushing toilets
10 times, 15 times’

Original Article

President Donald Trump triggered his most fervent detractors Friday by making somewhat outlandish statements about toilets, sinks and showers.During a business roundtable, he revealed that his administration is looking into maybe loosening toilet, sink and shower water-saving regulations because these regulations are making the normal drudgery of life particularly inconvenient for the American people.“We have a situation where we’re looking very strongly at sinks and showers and other elements of bathrooms where you turn the faucet on — in areas where there’s tremendous amounts of water, where the water rushes out to sea because you could never handle it —

It’s hard to get Vivek’s take on PDJT. But that aside, read the article, esp the President’s own words re light bulbs. His humor will make you smile.

First time we ever had a President that enjoys poking fun at himself. Its funny. OTOH, imagine Nanny Bloomberg regulating water and energy. Its frightening.

He's right on everything he said, when you had 3 gallon flush toilets only one flush. Who likes taking a shower with the low flow shower heads.

My entire life I have watched bureaucratic bozos intrude increasingly into my private life. It started with smoking. As a non-smoker, I'd been subjected to appalling behavior by smokers at work on airplanes, buses, and restaurants. So I agreed with the general idea of smoking and non-smoking areas. However, I feared it was just the first click in a bureaucratic ratchet that would lead to more. Soon after, smoking was banned in restaurants and bars, and the bureaucratic persecution escalated to the point where smokers were forced outside to huddle around burning bins in the middle of winter. When the lunatic Gore started telling me how I should light my home, the bureaucratic ratchet began clicking increasingly for me. They forced me to wear seat belts and motorcycle helmets. They ruined my shower. They now tell me what I can eat and how to excrete. Having literally taken control of my body at both ends, they are now trying to get inside my head. With the rise of "safe spaces" and speech codes, they are trying to police what I can think and say. Enough. President Trump may be joking, but I am not. I want all of this stuff ratcheted back. I want my shower back. I want lights that work and toilets that flush. I want to be able to smoke a cigar in a bar. And I want them to stop trying to force my life into their "safe spaces." Instead, I want a free space where people can think, say, and do whatever they like so long as it doesn't directly and materially harm someone else. I call that free space America, and I hope very much that President Trump will continue to lead us there.

Always drill out the flow restrictor on new shower heads. A 1/4" bit works nicely. It's more satisfying than pulling the labels off of pillows and mattresses and one still gets the "Rush" of being a dangerous criminal ! All together now: "You ain't takin' me alive.......coppers !"

Comments after the article shows how completely devoid of a sense of humor the left is. They thought Trump was serious in everything he said; even about rain. Maybe it isn't lack of a sense of humor. It could be that the left is stupid and devoid of any sense.

Ask any reputable plumber or septic tank/sewer installer and you'll learn one thing ,right away. The more water that comes through the system the more efficient the result. The water utilized does NOT go into outer space -regardless of what you hear from the in- viro mentalists.

Of course he’s right. The new little-water toilets work very poorly, no matter the price. It is not uncommon to flush at least two times. I am still trying to figure out why anyone reads Vivek.

I can not see see where the US Constitution allows the Federal Government to regulate any of this... unless the water crosses an interstate line between the control valve and your shampooed head. In which case, move.

Not only are the twirly lightbulbs dangerous - they produce terrible light. Some people may not care but I’m a professional hand embroiderer and I carry my own light with me when I travel because so many hotels use those PC bulbs and I can’t see well enough to work in those rooms.

As others have said, plumbers have advised us to flush several times. Our 1960s pipes weren't designed for a teaspoon's worth of water to move things along. We're also clinging (bitterly) to our early 1990s dishwasher which works quite well, and (gasp) uses a respectable amount of water while doing its job.

Those low flow toilets were one of the worst things ever invented and forced upon the public. Instead of one flush, you now have to do several to dispose of waste. Trump is just verbalizing what the public has known for decades. Those low flow toilets stink. The shower heads are even worse IMO, especially if you have a thick head of hair.

Exaggeration or sarcasm, works for me. I often DO flush a couple of times, or hold the handle to get more water to flow than would normally flow with the damned sad excuses for toilets that we have now. I found that I could purchase 5 gpm aerators for my bathroom faucets, which all come with 3 gmp aerators to reduce flow to California (spit) specifications. Unscrew the 3 gpm, screw in the 5 gmp, fixed. Check at your plumbing supplier. A couple of bucks well spent, IMO. Try a Toto Drake toilet, too. It has a larger diameter flush passage and a quicker, higher velocity flush. Works way better than most.

Hunter Biden’s name is ringing throughout the political universe — from the halls of Congress to the annals of social media and the cornfields of Iowa, messing with former Vice President Joseph R. Biden’s “No Malarkey” mojo in the Democratic presidential race. The 49-year-old has emerged as a central character in the impeachment inquiry on Capitol Hill and is complicating life for Mr. Biden on the campaign trail. Questions about Hunter’s tabloid-worthy personal life, as well as his cushy position on the board of a Ukranian energy company, are muddying his father’s message.

Ted Cruz: Horowitz report shows FBI was

Senate Judiciary Committee member Ted Cruz, R-Texas, called the Justice Department inspector general's report both "chilling and encouraging" in an interview Monday on "Hannity.""It is stunning the abuse of power that we saw in the Obama administration and sadly it continued over in the deep state for the first couple of years of the Trump administration," Cruz told host Sean Hannity, adding that even if a reader gave the FBI the benefit of the doubt, Michael Horowitz's report would still be damning."The very best interpretation of the Horowitz inspector general report is that the FBI and Department of Justice were manifestly incompetent," he said.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General (IG)’s report Monday on the FBI’s use of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants found that the agency misled the FISA court, though not due to political bias. It also found that the decision to initiate an investigation into Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign was adequately founded — although Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham disagree. Both Republicans and Democrats claimed that the report corroborated their respective political narratives. Republicans said that President Trump’s rights had been abused, and Democrats said no political bias was shown.
