• Then They Came for the Toilet Paper and I Did Not Speak Out

      Having solved the rest of the world's problems, environmental groups like Greenpeace and the Sierra Club have turned their attention to our toilet paper. As you might expect, they don't like soft toilet paper. They think it's too soft.

      Why should Americans use luxurious toilet paper made from old-growth trees when much of the world gets by with a far more basic and often recycled product?...

      Mountains of paper are dumped every day into recycling bins in homes, offices, factories and schools. Use that to make toilet paper, the activists said.

      Charmin, Cottonelle, Angel Soft and Quilted Northern are the worst offenders, according to Greenpeace. Apparently the environmental group, after helping to kill millions of children through its campaign to ban malaria-preventing DDT has enough time on its hands to come up with a "toilet paper guide." If you like soft toilet paper, tough.

      It's always something. Meddling busybodies always try to insinuate themselves into our lives. Even locking yourself in the bathroom won't help.
