And if those people don’t let their kids play when you’re around, their kids would then be missing out on one of the best dudes east of the Mississippi.

It’s like guilting people for not being vegan for destroying the planet when big Agra does more to harm our environment than me eating shrimp pad Thai.

My beef with this wasn’t so much the ban on plastic straws. That’s definitely a step in the right direction. And let’s get rid of plastic sacks nationwide, too, while we’re banning plastics. And Q-tips. Because remember that little seahorse?

My eye roll was more, as fivewayrack pointed out, how lopsided our laws can be.

From what I’ve read commercial fishing pollutes the oceans with more plastic than anything else. So where are the regulations, enforcements, and punishments for that group?

And more… Where are the strict emission laws for the airlines and the shipping industries? How many pollutants are they dumping into the atmosphere each day?

If we’re gonna clean up the oceans, we really need to go full balls. Is banning plastic straws really gonna make that big a difference? Seems to me it’s like using that same straw to suck up an entire ocean.

Don’t buy the anti straw propaganda. That was a stir stick! LOL

Maybe we can form a NSA (National Straw Association) to defend straw rights nation wide.

Exactly what is an “assault rifle” and what isn’t often depends on who a person is talking to. Granted, fully automatic rifles are how the government defines “assault rifle” but I bet anybody that looks at an AR-15 is gonna say it looks like an assault rifle, whether the particular model is banned or not.

Assault rifles are illegal

Plastic straws are also actually useful to some people and the most viable option for them. People who don’t *need* straws can always decline them, or people who *do* need them should be able to ask. Now people are talking about a prescription for plastic straws. But yeah, keep those high capacity rifles on the shelf.

Exactly this.

Yeah, it wasn’t so much about the straws as to what’s still legal.

It is always been my view that while some of us identify as left and some of us identifies right. Almost all of us truly exist somewhere in the center. We end up electing fringe candidates out of fear of each other. As a result straws get banned in California and in other parts of the country you can’t even buy a glass of wine with your dinner.

Plastic straws have been found in the noses of turtles

Because people have more empathy for dead sea turtles than dead children…

Someone told me that the cartoons we watched as kids, the Looney Toons, were banned because of all the violence. Wile E. Coyote, Bugs Bunny, Foghorn Leghorn, etc, were all banned due to excessive violence. I can only surmise they thought watching this…See More
