I do for multiple reasons, I love visiting the Northern part of the state and have friends that own and operate breweries there. The taxes and regulations are killing them, and many lean liberal, yet still complain that itís gone too far. Once you get north of SF and all itís homeless and other problems, and over the Golden Gate itís beautiful country that everyone should visit.

And of course I am concerned about the silliness like this where governments believe they know whatís best for businesses and individuals. Granted, this will save tens of millions a year for the hotel industry and they may even have been involved. But it comes down to the government telling a business what they can and cannot legally offer its customers.

Just remember the next time you use a bulk shampoo dispenser, you never know what a conscientious objector could have put in there.



Government makes these decisions.

Alcohol, tobacco, drugs, food.

Im sure the soap issue has to do with the amount of opened and 3/4 unused bottles that add immensely to garbage and waste disposal.

Sometimes the government does overreach. They tried in NYC to pass a soda ban on restaurants limiting how much soda could be sold.

BTW, that was a proposal of Mayor Bloomberg REPUBLICAN and quickly challenged by the NYC liberals.

See you and me can be on the same side sometimes as im certain you dont support the government telling businesses how much soda they can sell right?

I agree. And so does CET, really. When I get a basic room I'm stuck with those dispensers. I use my own. For all I know, some jerk has added hair remover to the shampoo.

The reason I say CET agrees is, when I get an upgraded room, it has the individual soaps and shampoos, even if it also has the dispensers in the shower.

People share lots of things - salt and pepper, sugar shakers, ketchup and condiments, towels and sheets that are laundered - and I rarely think twice. But something about those dispensers and their simple lids gives me the creeps.

I know several other people who bring their own bedlinens, though, so at least I don't take it that far...lol.

Not exactly. Bloomberg was a lifelong Democrat who switched to the GOP to run for mayor who later left the GOP and stayed as an independent.

RINO at best.

The only bad thing about that policy was the banning part. If soda was banned forever, or never existed it would be absolutely great. A literal gift to humanity.

I keep hearing that "pro-choice" folks are not "pro-abortion." Well, look at a recent USA Today headline:



Fewer women are having abortions. Why?


If that not clear enough that they think a decline in abortion rates is not a good thing, how about a quote from the article:

Quote: Mary Ziegler, a professor at the Florida State University College of Law who specializes in the legal history of reproduction



"We've changed what was an undeniable consensus ó that reducing abortion was the goal," Ziegler said. "Now we're looking at whether the decline in abortion rates is something to be celebrated or worried about."



So please, do not tell me the "pro-choice movement" is not really pro-abortion. And when you support them, know what you are really supporting.

You can tell me whatever you want. This is at least the third think I have linked to show my point. A John Cleese reply of "no, it isn't" does not compare.
