Nicole’s response to the front-page piece in the local newspaper is, well, predictable. She’s busy spinning away.
However, I was right. They are, in fact, going to clip the article and put it in a scrapbook, you know, for “documentation.” Because everyone involved will be “held accountable.”
Somehow this sounds a lot like my years in fundy churches where the preacher would insist that we’d all stand before the “judgment seat of Christ” one day and we’d be sorry, so put money in the plate and go drag all your neighbors to church.
She insists that they are not just “throwing shit on the ground.” But she will not, absolutely will not, show us what they are doing with it. How many times have I asked? I know she says she doesn’t read this blog, but it’s obvious she does. So answer the question, Nicole. What are you doing with the shit?
And “composting it” isn’t an answer. Any organic matter rots if you just leave it alone for a while. Exactly how are you “composting” it?
But Nicole’s spin is getting boring and repetitive. What is hilarious are the comments. Here are some gems.
First, here are the “how dare the newspaper do that – sue them” comments.
Uh, Tina, libel is written. Slander is spoken. Otherwise they are identical. And Hinton did, in fact, specify exactly how to fix the issue. He sent them a letter telling them all about it.
Yeah, they’re gonna sue the newspaper for an article without a single factual error. And they can post the address (and I didn’t black it out) because it’s public information.
Then we have the “why can’t human shit be deposited just anywhere” comments.
There are a few important words that these folks simply aren’t considering. One is “disease.” The other is “treated.”
I would make sure the court is reminded that poop is poop.
I would suggest that maybe that wouldn’t be a very good idea, Debbie.
But a couple of commenters (including the “moderinator”) seem to realize that some sort of treatment of human feces is necessary to avoid the spread of disease and other harmful things. This would seem to indicate that they have IQs slightly above the absymal level of the other commenters. But they latch onto two ideas: first, that somehow the Blessed Little Compost Heap meets those requirements without anyone ever knowing exactly how it does that, and two, that even though treatment is required by law, it’s dumb and in fact dangerous, so we shouldn’t do it.
The article, “S”, you blithering idiot, is about properly treated human waste.
I have actually been to the Blessed Little Homestead. Before everyone goes ballistic, I have not put my clean feet over the Blessed Property Line, but I didn’t have to. It is a trash-strewn mess. It looks like a third-world encampment. Refugee camps look better.
The truth is that nobody who sees that place would trust the Nauglers to have the slightest idea how to responsibly feed a chicken, much less operate a human waste compost system.
Yes, they do. They clean it. They treat it to destroy dangerous pathogens and they clean it to remove harmful chemical compounds. That’s exactly what they do. And that is what the Nauglers are not doing.
. . . I am not backing down.
But that is exactly what they do every time they are dragged into court. Every single time. Joe takes some plea deal or agrees to conditions that result in a deferral. In this case, they were very slightly proactive. They ran out and rented a porta-potty just days before court so they could say they had complied. That is the very definition of “backing down.”
Joe and Nicole often blather on about how they are documenting stuff. Well, I’m collecting and documenting this sort of thing. This is a veiled threat.
Let’s do what needs to [be] done.
Exactly what “needs to be done,” Breck?
