Dave Matthews Band Takes a Dump on Liberal Principles
by Thom the Blog Culler
So, despite pimping his band as being environmentally responsible, Dave Matthew and his bandmates are in hot water for dumping a huge amount of poop into a public waterway, and also onto, well, members of the public too. From Foxnews.com:
The state of Illinois sued the Dave Matthews Band on Tuesday for allegedly dumping up to 800 pounds of liquid human waste from a bus into the Chicago River, dousing a tour boat filled with passengers.
Can you imagine being one of those poor tourists, enjoying a nice ride along the river, when suddendly crap literally starts raining down on you? Yuck!
Don't blame the bus driver. The Illinois Attorney General is going after the band itself. That may mean they have reason to believe Dave knew what was going on.
Actions really do speak louder than words folks. If you really want to bring America together because you care about the "little people" you don't poop on them. If you really care about clean air and water, you don't dump 800 pounds of bio-hazard waste into public waterways. They are called "septic" tanks for a reason, no?
Surely this couldn't be evidence of liberal hypocrisy, could it? Gosh no. Kerry and Streisand own SUV's and private jets because they really need them, right? I'm sure Dave has a perfectly environmentally acceptable reason for dumping its septic tanks where it did, right?
What can I say more?
