This is what the socialist need, along with the influence of "dreamers". Builds their voting base. Tide pod eaters are already calling for the abolishment of inalienable right. Just what America needs. We already got the gentle mind of women calling some shots. We don't need children in the mix. This is a terrible idea for the Republic.

Newsflash: DC could let 5 year olds vote and the result will not change.

I'm calling BS. HOw many people actually ate tide pods?

This...In Summary this year alone a couple of dozen kids..probably under 100...the over 60 generation is more likely to eat tide pods...the true catastrophy is how many young kids eat them 5 and under. This is a non issue. Stop bringing it up.

Thirty-nine reports of teenagers intentionally misusing laundry pods came in during the first 15 days of 2018 alone, according to data from the American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC). For context, there were 39 cases of intentional misuse of these pods among teenagers in all of 2016, and 53 in 2017, AAPCC spokesperson Edward Walrod told TIME — suggesting that while the problem may not be hugely common, it is on the rise.

While teenagers are making headlines right now, parents and consumer protection groups have for years been concerned that the laundry pods too closely resemble candy or toys and could be accidentally eaten by young children who don’t know the difference. (The USCPSC has been warning parents about laundry pods since 2013.) In 2017, about 10,500 of the 12,300 estimated exposures to laundry pods occurred in children younger than five, according to the AAPCC.

The products may also pose a risk to elderly adults who have Alzheimer’s or dementia. Last year, 167 incidents involving adults older than 60 were reported.

In all, 456 people across age groups have reportedly been exposed to single-load laundry packets so far this year, whether intentionally or not, according to the AAPCC data.

16 year olds eat tide pods. nuff said,..


30 year olds soak tampons in hooch and stick them in their ass.

Nuff said


I have a little life experience, raised 2 boys and was a 16 year old once myself .

16 year olds are idiots who are still in high school still going through puberty.





There should be an intelligence test.
Just cause you're a certain age does not mean you're not a dumb ass

Oh, that would not sit well with minorities who already claim intelligence tests are biased against them.

I wouldn't be opposed to that! But what measure of intelligence? Also I am quite sure within seconds of that being proposed you would have protests and riots on the streets screaming it's racist!

This is the element you want voting:





You showed me 2 people out of millions. LOL

Didn't you see who the older generations put as their candidates last time? Hillary and Trump. LOL

Didn't you see who the older generations put in congress for the past several decades? Pelosi, Mitch Mcconnel, harry reid, Barbara Boxer...and on and on and on.

Didn't you see who the older generations picked to run against Obama? Mitt Romney! LOL

I ask again, how can the younger generation who is not influenced by TV and Radio pundits do worse than us? They can't


Who do you think teens would have voted for? Do you think there would have been a difference in candidates? If so, how is that possible?

Well, if we're going to limit people from voting according to their intelligence, we should also do it for stupid people who want to do other things. Like having children. Or posting on the Internet.

Enough that it made the news

Enough that Tide and others had to change their product

I'd say.... Enough that it can be used as a valid point. Who knows how many were not reported.

Historically, changes to voting ages have tended to favour the Party which advocated for them in the first place. Given the brunt of Republican voters fall in the older age range and the Dems get a younger crowd, I wonder who would benefit from this change?

It's the Dems, right?

We should be raising that number, not lowering it.

President is required to be 35 or older. Widening the empathetic generational gap is unwise. Younger adults struggle with a proper understanding of politics and college action groups have no trouble brainwashing a large amount of young vulnerable college students.

They don't understand that what they are most vulnerable to, is thinking that they won't be lied to by groups involved with "college" students.

The idea is that college students are inherently a "smarter pool" of the population. In general this notion causes a subconscious belief that no one will try to deceive the "smarter sample" of college students.

It gives them false security, and they fall for groups that have questionable motives.

I disapprove.

It won't change anything as far as DC goes, but they need to get on this and get it in front of the courts to stop them from doing a sidestep around the Constitution. Only a child would think this is a good idea. Or a childish mind.

Imagine 10 million votes for Green Party and Libertarian or Constitution party candidates. That's just for president. Now imagine 10 million votes for independent or third party congressional candidates.

It was like 39 kids who took the challenge. Actually more over 60 year olds ate tide pods than the teenage demographic.

That's a small small number. It only made the news because it's ...shocking...train wreck can't look away stuff. It would have only taken 1 kid though to make the news.

Tide is really changing product because of the thousands of children under 5 that eat them.
