    I would have thought the Republican's would be behind this 100%. Being a party for the rich and effluent.

    Believe it or not, I'm not in favor of this.

    Lord knows I think Bush is pond scum and have even taken a number of good cracks at him myself. But making a permanent statement by naming an undesirable building after him?

    If you can do it to them, they can do it to you. Next time it might be somebody I view favorably "honored" with such a "tribute".

    No, there are some shots that are so cheap and so partisan that even I will not take them.

    (Though I must say, it might at least balance out the fact that they put Reagan's name on an airport. That's ridiculous too.)

    The bottom line, it gives the treatment plant a bad name.

    Wastewater treatment plants are a critical part of protecting our environment. Without effective wastewater treatment our cities and eventually the entire nation would become one giant cesspool. Do you guys really think that naming a plant that protects our environment and keeps our country from becoming a pile of crap after Bush would be a fitting tribute?

    This is the most juvenile, eighth-grader thing I've ever heard of in my life. Some people have waaaaay too much time on their hands.:rolleyes:

    SF Ballot Measure: George W. Bush Sewage Treatment Plant

    A link I saw on the Chronicle this morning:

    I'm not sure whether or not to laugh about this, but I think I'm going to end up doing exactly that.

    Laughing, absolutely, unless there is some arcane provision in the Declaration of Independence prohibiting the denigration of The President.

    Why would anybody care enough to vote on this. It's useless and childish.

    Childish you say!!! You speak as if "adultish" is something better??

    Ridicule is still a very strong weapon, and yet no one is physically hurt. ;)

    But it's not doing any harm, and it's not like Bush isn't generally recognised as having been a miserable failure. Personally I'd love to hear of this getting through :D

    but as it was said, its an integral part of any city. not to mention its still a 'tribute' of sorts. a landfill would be a better place if you really want to convey the right message.

    AH, but land-fills usually end up to be a park, or some such.

    Do we want a memorial park for Georgie Porgie?

    Nope.

    A landfill in San Francisco? Where would they put it? :confused: I don't think the dredged up Treasure Island would suffice considering people well, live there.

    Silly and childish? Maybe. Hilarious? Definitely. One of the signatures that helped to get on the ballot is mine so you lot know where I stand on it.

    For all those who are thinking its inappropriate due to it being a treatment plant and being an integral part of the city, you're way overanalysing it. Its going to be called something like "The George W. Bush Sewer Plant" for ****s sake. That's all you need to know.

    I love this city.

    I don't even know what to say. This just shows the true colors of those that support it. Congratulations on resorting to name calling.
