What is skunk water?

Police departments in the United States are reported to have bought a foul-smelling liquid developed in Israel to repel protesters. What is "skunk" and how is it used?

When we were kids, we found, under our house which was raised up on blocks, where the chickens had a secret egg laying spot. Except they didn't bother sitting on them to hatch them. So these eggs were perhaps six to eight months old...and VERY ripe, if you know what I mean. My brother found out when he tapped one on a rock and it exploded in his face from the putrid gases under pressure. He must have puked six times. Anyway, we found that if handled very carefully, these eggs made excellent stink bombs and used them for foul smelling capers we probably should have had our asses beat over.

We should just use real skunks. We've got plenty of those in congress. I'm sure we could spare a few for a good cause.

I said back when they were developing this stuff that it would end up coming back to bite them in just this manner. It also happens to be basically useless, the only reason the Palestinians haven't figured out how to neutralize it completely is because they're a bunch of inbred Muslims. The simple fact of the matter is that there is a limit on how harmless something can be and still be useful as a means of fighting a war.

So much for free speech. Government doesn't like what you have to say at your peaceable assembly....they declare it an unlawful one, spray you with this shit and now you can't even go to work for a period of at least several days before the stink wears off.

Remember what Stalin said, "Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas."

Free speech and peaceable assembly are about the spread of ideas. The fact that WE are ALLOWING our government to entertain notions of stopping the spread of ideas is just another step in totalitarianism.
