Ha! Late Jesse Helms Doesn't Rate Enough Posthumous Support To Put Name On A Post Office

tweeted by, PublicPolicyPolling@ppppolls

Both black (14/61) and white (36/44) North Carolinians oppose the Jesse Helms Post Office renaming: http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/main/2012/12/north-carolina-miscellany.html


-Only 31% of North Carolinians think the Post Office in downtown Raleigh should be renamed after Jesse Helms to 48% who are opposed. Both African Americans (14/61) and white voters (36/44) are against the renaming. Even among Republicans there's only 44% support for it, while Democrats are far more unified in their opposition (60%). Independents oppose it 28/47 as well.

4. I can't find a direct source, but I remember reading that Helms felt there was no rape if

a woman got pregnant as a result - because to get pregnant, a woman had to have an orgasm, so if she was pregnant, she must have had an orgasm. If she had an orgasm, she felt enjoyment. So therefore - no rape!
I heard this in the mid-eighties, when I lived in NC.

6. Dog Shit Bags Dispensers might be about right for this tool............

 

if some one hung his dired out carcass from a tree & treated it like a pinata, that might be appropriate too.

7. Jesse Helms was a STAIN in American political history.

He doesn't deserve to have a gas station restroom named after him. No legacy for Klan fuckers who make not-so-veiled, "IOKIYAR" threats against sitting Presidents. "Aw shux, that's jest Jessah bein' Jessah, no big deel . . ."

8. That old racist doesn't even merit a porta-potty named after him

He'll be a footnote in history about what was wrong with this country.

9. How about a urinal at an I-95 rest stop?

That would be appropriate.
