Occupy Calgary protesters post plea for toiletries and condoms
http://www.calgarysun.com/home ^ | October 17, 2011 | Calgary Sun

Posted on 10/18/2011 10:22:34 AM PDT by sarah palin rocks

Occupy Calgary protesters entrenched in Olympic Plaza have put out a call for donations from the public, asking for medical supplies, toiletries and condoms.

The group, which expanded from its city-granted camp on St. Patrick’s Island following a Saturday protest at Bankers Hall, posted the plea for supplies on Facebook as city officials kept a close watch on the latest annexation of public property.

Donations from the public have been coming in for the movement, which organizers say will be used to buy supplies such as food, but a plea has also been posted on Facebook for condoms, antibiotic ointment, gauze, hand sanitizer, hand warmers, toothpaste, toothbrushes and warm clothing among others.

The local action is an offshoot of Occupy Wall Street movement, which began as a protest motivated by the inequities of the U.S. financial system.

I came across this story of Lefties begging for condoms and other personal items at the 'Occupy Calgary' protests. They not only want guaranteed wages, free education, and housing but free condoms too...

—...free condoms too...—

What about dental dams. I don’t know why they want them, but I remember homosexual groups, a few years ago, talking about needing dental dams. Is it an oral hygene thing?

If they don’t get their condoms, I expect the abortion rate will climb over the next several months.

Well, I guess it’s obvious that the OWS gang don’t use condoms - that might be the only thing they haven’t asked be provided for free.

I could tell you, but this is a family board.

I got married in the State of Michigan, which required all couples to attend a public health lecture on AIDS prevention before they'd issue the license. I learned how to protect myself during activities I never would have thought of in a million years, had it not been for the generosity of the Taxpayers of the State of Michigan.

The fools were too stupid to take a box of ziplock bags with them ... to zip up their effluence. I use them for cleaning the cat box, so I know it works. May they contact disease in their foolish state.

Condoms are made by corporations. As are antibiotic ointment, toothpaste, etc.

Why would they want this corporate-ly made offal?

An enterprising young capitalist could clean up (pun intended) by pushing a cart through the great unwashed and selling them these items at a modest markup.

Condoms are made by corporations.

Would you want to have to rely on a condom that was manufactured by a non-hierarchical egalitarian green workers cooperative?

As Woody Hayes would say...

Serves you right for getting married in that state up north !

Seriously, if someone has to rely on a condom, they shouldn’t be having sex, its that simple for me..it would seem to be logical

Dear OWS participants. Condoms...

We can't send you condoms because both the product [condom] and their raw materials [synthetic rubber] are produced by evil CORPORATIONS and that would just be wrong and not in solidarity with your cause.

Historically, natural condoms were made from the intestines of sheep. But providing finished & packaged product would again involve evil CORPORATIONS.

But, we understand your urgent need. So, here is a flock of sheep. Consider them an all natural, ecologically sound, sustainable and non-corporate evolved, "do it yourself" kit.

Have fun & be safe!

It’s interesting that you hide the location of the link you posted.

You have used an URL shortener:

http://bit.ly/pHxxub

In order to obscure the fact that you are pimping the Dullard blog.
The actual address your link refers to is:

http://patdollard.com/2011/10/occupy-calgary-protesters-begging-for-free-condoms/

How do you explain that?
