Movement to Rename Sewage Plant After Bush Gains Steam in San Fran


www.foxnews.com

"If the measure passes, it would rename [San Francisco's] Oceanside Treatment Plant as the George W. Bush Sewage Plant... sponsors of the ballot measure say it’s a fitting tribute to a president who made a big mess."

Love it! There could be no more appropriate name for sewage than GW, he is certainly deserving of this 'honor'.

Have you people no feelings for raw sewage everywhere?!
Raw sewage will hide in caves never to be seen in public again.

I find it rather disgustingly disrespectful.

You aren't the only one. Disagreement is fine, but things like this are pathetic. It simply makes the people in San Francisco that support this appear childish.

It sounds to me as if a few legislators in San Francisco need to grow up.

And "rock" the Curse Of Greyface like all the other [snip]legislators? I think George W. Bush is a beautiful name for a sewage treatment plant -- and, as Mad_Hatter pointed out -- very appropriate.

I agree 100%. Perhaps we should name one wing of the National Musem of Sex to the William Jefferson Clinton Oral Wing. That would be every bit as ridiculous as this. The office of the President demands a certain level of respect. This crosses that line and is a slap in the face to the office itself and every President we've had.

I love it! But to be fair to both of them, it should be named the Bush and Cheney Sewage Treatment Facility. If I lived there, it would give me tremendous satisfaction every single time I flushed.

Its also a slap in the face of civil discourse. I've never understood why people have to engage in these types of childish antics in order to make a point. In reality, it makes them look at least as bad as the one they're targeting, if not worse, and again, aids in lowering the quality of political discussion in this country.

Not that I really expect better, mind you. Its just a sign of the times.

Now, now don't get upset.

Think of the other side of the coin.

A sewage treatment facility that will take something yucky, and clean it up! Symbolic for a new beginning.

How can that be disrespectful?

All this naming stuff after presidents is silly anyway. Whether it's a library, museum or elementary school. Why can they not be more creative when naming a building?

Because they're funny. And at times like this, we need funny.

It's not like they bombed the facility with planes, now, is it? And if anyone needs to lighten up it's people who engage in political discussions!

Did you vote for Bush (not that a voting makes a difference)? If you did, you're damn right not to expect any better. A sign of the times indeed.

I don't agree with it on either side of the political spectrum. Its certainly a matter of opinion whether its funny or not.

I'm not partisan and have absolutely no interest in the "left/right paradigm" either, but I agree with it on either side of the spectrum. I do also have to agree with you that it's a matter of opinion whether this is funny or not. It was a little ignorant of me to word that post the way I did. It was not intentional and I apologise.

What I meant by all this was I think everyone should just lighten up -- especially people in politics. I think it would be beneficial to the world if those people, particularly, made more jokes (at each others expense and at their own expense).

what part of the clinton impeachment did you find respectful? the public reading into the records by the republicans of every DETAIL of clintons affair? or the constant repeating, everyday of what he had done, in the media? you know...the LIBERAL MEDIA!!!? the republican bashing of his daughter? accusing him of murder, drug running, by the right wingers?

you mean that type of respect for the office?

Perfect. And even better if Bush and Cheney are put into sewage treatment themselves.
