Americans, according to a Winston Churchill quote of uncertain provenance, always do the right thing after theyve exhausted all other possibilities. More verifiably, Sir Winston, upon being asked if he had any criticism of the United States, replied tersely: Toilet paper too thin, newspapers too fat.
But that was then. Today America is a land of two-ply toilet paper and one-ply newspapers. Being made of sterner stuff than Churchills posterior, the eco-Left want to ban two-ply bathroom tissue on environmental grounds, which would devastate the economy of Canada, whence comes most American bathroom tissue, at least until the Canadians, being the House of Saud of toilet paper, start shipping it to China, as theyre now doing with their oil ever since Obama told them to go lay pipe somewhere else.

Perhaps Floyd Corkins had similar dreams: He would be the flamer that lit the fuse to liberate a continent from the oppressiveness of homophobic waffle fries.
Another Steyn home run.
This is where Biden hurts no budget barack. They look like a couple of buffoons. President Kardashian and Joe the Clown.
Even the dims know it now and are mad about it. But they are still trying to drag his skinny kenyan behind across the finish line.
This is classic Mark Steyn.
It just doesn’t get any better than Steyn.
Our elites have sunk into a boutique decadence of moral preening entirely disconnected from reality: A nonhomophobic chicken in every pot, an abortifacient dispenser in every Catholic university, a high-speed rail corridor between every two bankrupt California municipalities.
How true.... and how depressing.
Using Winston Churchill is very Poetic

Looks like Mark has counted the anti Mormon Lefties that constantly disfigure Free Republic in his mix of those deserving disdain
“....the anti Mormon Lefties that constantly disfigure Free Republic...”
You’ve noticed and correctly identified the essence of that sub-species of loons “living” amongst us. Good for you. The word “lefties” is a critical component of an accurate description of them.
Mark Steyn for Romney’s Press Secretary !
Yep: If you seriously think this election is about gay marriage or affordable contraception, youre about to do to America what Gavrilo Princip did to the Habsburg Empire.
He just nailed a bunch of FR to the wall.
I find it aggravating that a single government agency is costing America billions of dollars every year by outlawing a common sense industry for downright stupid reasons.
This would be the DEA, banning commercial hemp agriculture.
To start with, hemp is ruinous to marijuana production, because it cross-pollinates with marijuana and strongly reduces the potency of its active ingredient. Marijuana producers try to avoid pollination at all, but when they do pollinate for seed, they want marijuana, not hemp, pollen.
Hemp grows about anywhere, marginal quality farmland not particularly good for other crops, needing minimal irrigation, fertilizer or pesticide.
Hemp makes superb, pH balanced paper that is far superior and lasts much longer than acid washed wood pulp paper.
And yes, better toilet paper. Less abrasive to the skin.
Hemp also makes a silk-like cloth that holds dye colors well, and can be used for many other textiles.
And hemp oil is a healthy, high-temperature cooking oil, and the leftover parts of the plant can be processed into good quality animal fodder.
Terrific article. Love this line: “Our elites have sunk into a boutique decadence of moral preening entirely disconnected from reality.”
Ridicule is a powerful weapon!
It's apparently a Southern Thing.
great, I can see the kids hiding in the bathroom, smoking the toilet paper...
Mark Steyn for President. Hey, if one DUMB AS DIRT foreign born usurper could do it, what could stop the actually brilliant Steyn?
Mark Steyn ping. Also I think this Steyn essay was not pinged during the week:
Freepmail me, if you want on or off the Mark Steyn ping list.
Thanks for the ping Slings and Arrows.
He certainly did, and rightly so. The phrase “cutting off your nose to spite your face” has come to mind a lot of late.
Another fan-girl in the I Love Steyn chorus.
“Our elites have sunk into a boutique decadence of moral preening entirely disconnected from reality:”
Only Steyn can write like this!
EVERY Mark Steyn is classic Mark Steyn! :-)
