Whereas I would agree that the example he pulled out on the spot was off--he should have pulled out some silly federal regulation of which we have in abundance--the underlying premise that we are an over regulated society is one I can agree with.


Star for not letting ideology retard your thinking centers...

Now explain how the rest of the right wing on this thread is still defending his comments.

See? Nothing to argue with there

Also no reason not to laugh at this story :-)

You know what I wish? I wish people would stop using this kind of party-based, ass-kissing, political, partisan, idiotic sound bite shorthand. Dog-whistling to your own constituents is not going to ever win anybody new over to your side or fix a single thing

And, yes - that goes for both parties. If we're at all serious about making things better for people in our country (and not just a select few) then we need real discussions with real situations - and sincere attempts at problem solving

So, yes - fewer regulations. Show us senator - where are these superfluous regulations that don't benefit anybody?

Just 2 more years doc - I'm bored and annoyed already :-)

Yo FREE MARKET is not nor has it ever been 'right' wing.

That is, and comes from classical LIBERALISM.

Government regulation of the markets is RIGHT WING.

Be nice if people got it right.

Hilarious example he chose. Who's going to regulate that they put a sign up to tell people they don't wash their hands. This makes my head hurt. LOL

Whatever he meant, I predict this dude is going to get a whole lot of kaka piled on his doorstep/desk/car. Maybe he better put some signs up explaining what he meant.

Wait...

They don't want to be regulated to wash their hands -- but they also are told to put up a sign saying they don't wash their hands? Isn't forcing them to put up a sign saying that...regulation?

Free market absent any government regulation is right wing. Specifically far right libertarianism, like David Koch's failed 1980 bid for President on the Libertarian ticket...before he realized he could just buy the government.

You can look it up...the flat earth debates get strange around here..

I didn't see it mentioned, but does hand sanitizer count as washing your hands? Or does that fall outside the regulation and is not considered hand washing?


I'm sure that Rep Tillis and the GOP have brought in a bunch of consultants to figure out how the sign should read for this eventuality. lol

WHATS FUNNY IS THIS WHOLE THREAD IS ABOUT WASHING HANDS, not about the topic of the federal government over regulating. I think that I am going to switch over to the left so I can get some of what there smoking.

PS I'm not a right winger, I just don't have wool over my eyes.

What a p*** poor example of something to deregulate. I work in the industry, trust me its very necessary to put up signs so employees wash their hands. How about washing hands after handling money at the cash register or after shaking hands with a politician? I mean who knows where someone's hands have been...ugh. Its a good thing those little germs can't be seen with the naked eye because no one would ever touch anyone, ever.

Yes, too much regulation is tedious and ridiculous in many cases but when it comes to those who handle and prepare food it's pretty important. In fact, health inspectors should all get raises and visit restaurants more than they do.

Just wow!

If I saw a sign like that in a restaurant, I wouldn't ever go there again, and I'd urge my family and friends not to go there either.

That is just gross and nasty.

I'm surprised that this is not in the hoax bin, the title is a complete lie the Sen. never said what was in the title.
