What Seattle Just Banned From The City Demonstrates How Silly Liberalism Really Is



Seattle has officially become the first major U.S. city to ban single-use plastic straws and utensils, all in the name of creating a “public dialogue” about environmental conservation.

Please note that anytime progressives use the term “public dialogue,” they do not mean they plan on having open debate on the topic where folks who might oppose their particular view get to freely articulate their belief system. They simply mean they’re going to force their worldview on you wether you like it or not.

This is mind-blowingly stupid.

The ban has been a long time coming for the city in Washington state: at least 150 restaurants began participating in the “Strawless in Seattle” campaign last year, reducing the number of plastic straws entering the waste system by 2.3 million.

As of Sunday, the rest of Seattle’s nearly 5,000 restaurants were required to begin providing compostable or paper straws and utensils to consumers.

The ban imposes a $250 (£190) fine on restaurants in violation of the new rules, but Seattle Public Utilities spokeswoman Ellen Pepin-Cato told The Seattle Times that the goal for the rest of the year was “continuing outreach and assistance to businesses to help them come into compliance, rather than enforcement”.

There are some exceptions to the ban, however. Flexible plastic straws can still be provided to customers who require them for medical reasons. Restaurants can also continue providing plastic straws to customers for dine-in or takeout meals, so long as they are recyclable.

The Lonely Whale Foundation, an environmental conservation group which launched the “Strawless in Seattle” initiative, recommends using alternatives to single-use plastic food items, including glass, bamboo, paper, metal, silicone and steel.

Are these folks seriously recommending people use a glass straw? For real? Because nothing could possibly go wrong while using a breakable drinking apparatus that uses the force of suction, right? Just imagine that sucker breaking and inhaling some glass or cutting your mouth to pieces.

Yes, we should take care of the planet, but we can do that with private sector solutions and avoid bloated government. As you can see, government does a lot of stupid, stupid things in the in the of whatever political issue is hot at the moment. If these people can’t even handle handing out driver’s licenses, why would we trust them with more important matters, like the environment?

Former Acting DNI Says Trump Told Him ‘Multiple Times’ He’s Running for POTUS 2024

It’ll be here before you know it.

The first openly gay cabinet member got little to no recognition from the mainstream media because he worked for a Republican administration. After all, the MSM works as the public relations branch of the Democrat Party. What Richard Grenell said on Monday, though, will have every liberal in the media listening intently. #Trump2024 WATCH: President Tucker Carlson? How does that sound to you? Could it one day happen, perhaps as soon as 2024? Only time will tell, obviously, but the rumor is abuzzin’. From Politico: Tucker Carlson’s audience is booming — and so is chatter that the popular Fox News host will parlay his TV perch into a run for president in 2024. Republican strategists, conservative commentators, and former Trump campaign and administration officials are buzzing about Carlson as the next-generation leader of Donald Trump’s movement — with many believing he would be an immediate frontrunner in a Republican primary. CONTINUED: “He’s a talented communicator with a massive platform. I think if he runs he’d be formidable,” said Luke Thompson, a Republican strategist who worked for Jeb Bush’s super PAC in 2016. While practically every Republican eyeing a 2024 presidential run is professing loyalty to Trump the person, Carlson has become perhaps the highest-profile proponent of “Trumpism” — a blend of anti-immigrant nationalism, economic populism and America First isolationism that he articulates unapologetically and with some snark. At the same time, he’s shown a rare willingness among Republicans to bluntly criticize Trump when he believes the president is straying from that ideology. VIDEO:

Chief Justice Roberts Will Not Preside Over Impeachment Trial, Will Be Top Dem Leader Instead

They want revenge, vengeance.

John Salvatore



“Wanna know how I got these scars?” That was the question Heath Ledger’s Joker asked a partygoer in 2008’s The Dark Knight. Said partygoer is the man who will preside over the second impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Not a joke. Just search the internet for SENATOR LEAHY BATMAN. From The Hill: Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts will not preside over former President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, which is scheduled to begin in earnest on Feb. 8. Instead, Senate President Pro Tempore Patrick Leahy (Vt.), the most senior member of the Senate Democratic Conference, will preside over the trial. CONTINUED: Leahy on Monday confirmed he would wield the gavel and promised to administer “impartial justice.” “The president pro tempore has historically presided over Senate impeachment trials of non-presidents. When presiding over an impeachment trial, the president pro tempore takes an additional special oath to do impartial justice according to the Constitution and its laws. It is an oath that I take extraordinarily seriously,” he said in a statement. How incredibly moronic is it to impeach a president after he has left office? What a waste of time. Democrats have proven, time and again, that they are not out for “unity.” Not at all. They want revenge; vengeance; blood. Okay, I did the search for you. Watch below…
