Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book.

Next they'll be doing it at the grocery checkout counter...

It's stories like this that make me feel I dropped through a worm hole into the Bizarro Universe:

AP - Wednesday, January 16

ST. PAUL, Minn. - In an effort to help Sen. Larry Craig, the American Civil Liberties Union is arguing that people who have sex in public bathrooms have an expectation of privacy.

Craig, of Idaho, is asking the Minnesota Court of Appeals to let him withdraw his guilty plea to disorderly conduct stemming from a bathroom sex sting at the Minneapolis airport.

The ACLU filed a brief Tuesday supporting Craig. It cited a Minnesota Supreme Court ruling 38 years ago that found that people who have sex in closed stalls in public restrooms "have a reasonable expectation of privacy."

That means the state cannot prove Craig was inviting an undercover officer to have sex in public, the ACLU wrote.

The Republican senator was arrested June 11 by an undercover officer who said Craig tapped his feet and swiped his hand under a stall divider in a way that signaled he wanted sex. Craig has denied that, saying his actions were misconstrued.

The ACLU argued that even if Craig was inviting the officer to have sex, his actions wouldn't be illegal.

"The government cannot prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Senator Craig was inviting the undercover officer to engage in anything other than sexual intimacy that would not have called attention to itself in a closed stall in the public restroom," the ACLU wrote in its brief.

The ACLU also noted that Craig was originally charged with interference with privacy, which it said was an admission by the state that people in the bathroom stall expect privacy.

Craig at one point said he would resign but now says he will finish his term, which ends in January 2009.

Okay, so now as our children go into the restrooms they'll be serenaded by the sounds of two pigs who can't/won't afford a room somewhere. Lovely. And let's call a spade a spade, it will be two nominal males. Most females, even the randiest, won't go for slapping bellies in a stall. Not saying there aren't some, just the level of minimal discernment is higher in women than men.

Firecrackers are legal here in Texas. Wonder what lighting one and rolling it under the stall door does to some fudgepacking couple's "expectation of privacy"? For those who live in areas they can't be sold, I'll merely observe there are several internet sites that give instructions for making homemade firecrackers. Try any half decent search engine and VOILA! you'll find 'em.

I'm NOT advocating anything illegal, just making an observation on the uses of modern technology.

I guess this is one of those things you get when the number of lawyers exceeds a given value for 100,000 people in the population.

I guess i do have the expectation that some objectionable person, for some objectional purpose, won't look over or under the stall door while I attend to business, but at the same time I don't think that opening the restrooms of America to random anonymous boinking is what was meant by privacy in this context.

I would never roll a fire cracker under the door of a restroom to disrupt boinking--it might cause one or both of the people to devlop and explosion fetish.

But if I needed to go, and all the stalls were full because of boinking, I might just hang it over the top and let fly!

IR, you have that option...I could never get "it" over the top....but I would start banging on doors and throwing rolls of TP over the top...anything to disrupt the mood. but hey, that's just me and I have to take my KIDS to public bathrooms!!!!!!!!!

Among other things...I'd start yelling..."Hey...They're boinking in this stall...lets all wait around and see who comes out!"...

Might just kill the mood.....

I can see the signs now....

"PUBLIC MEN'S SEX ROOMS"

I guess I am rather old fashioned in this regard because the only expectations that I had were that this apparently galavanting caballero would have resigned immediatyely instead of claiming not to be a gay or bisexual (did he say that too, I think so); and maybe that after resigning he would have gotten his affairs in order, written a note to his family apologizing for his lavatory antics, and then shot himself to death. I am not thinking he would have done this because he was evidently caught in a gay act, but rather because he was caught in the perversion of seeking sexual gratification (of any sort) in a public restroom. As for the being gay, if that is actually what he is, or even bisexual, why not just admit it. All this pussyfooting around the truth is abhorrent. When caught with your pants down - you may as well admit that yes indeed your pants were down for a reason and be truthful about it. It is more than apaprent now that he was untruthful about something - did he not claim having done none of this - and now his lawyers in the ACLUU are saying it was okay that he actually DID it?

Unbelieveable indeed.

All the best,

My expectations to pinch a loaf in peace are more reasonable than those who think they should get privacy in a public bathroom.
