Some Annoying Things This Week

Here are some things that are annoying me this week.

To begin, some people think that food stamps should apply to pets. Yup. There should be no problem with that. After all, dogs and cats are a part of the family, aren’t they?

I can see Fido going to Stop & Shop and using his food stamps for a can of Alpo, and he can use his EBT card, too.

Should dogs and cats get Medicare as well? How about dental? “Oh, Rover has buck teeth, so we better go to the orthodontist and get him braces.” (Oh wait, that might conflict with his piano lessons schedule. Sorry.)

And when he’s old maybe the Medicare policy will cover his dentures, too. When Rover and Fido retire they can go on Social Security, except that they probably won’t get back nearly as much as they paid into it.

Another annoying issue. In California the state assembly leader, Ian Calderon, wants to fine restaurant waiters $1,000 and throw them in jail for 6 months for giving restaurant patrons a straw with their drinks. According to Reason, Calderon (a Democrat — what else?) says, “We need to create awareness around the issue of one-time use plastic straws and its detrimental effects on our landfills, waterways, and oceans.”

So, this is what these environmental stasi are threatening now, and who knows what in the future. They’re really concerned about garbage. Yes, people use straws, they use plastic garbage bags or shopping bags, and a lot of other disposable stuff that they throw out.

Reason writes, “Calderon, along with news outlets writing about this issue—from CNN to the San Francisco Chronicle—unfailingly state that Americans use 500 million plastic straws a day, many of them ending up in waterways and oceans.”

Well, that’s not because people are using them and throwing them out in the garbage where they are supposed to throw them out. It’s because they are littering! That‘s the problem. How about punishing people for littering? The environmentalist stasi wackos just don’t get that, obviously. But throwing a waiter in jail or stealing his money away from him, because of a straw? Is the waiter responsible for other people littering? Only brainwashed lunatics would think that. These people are definitely dangerous, these stasi nutsos.
