Just Slide Into The Ocean, Already!

Leftist Democrats in California are proposing a bill which will make it illegal for wait staff to give a patron an “unrequested straw.”

The offense could result in a hefty fine and imprisonment. Imprisonment!

Ian Calderon, the Democratic majority leader in California’s lower house, has introduced a bill to stop sit-down restaurants from offering customers straws with their beverages unless they specifically request one. Under Calderon’s law, a waiter who serves a drink with an unrequested straw in it would face up to 6 months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.

“We need to create awareness around the issue of one-time use plastic straws and its detrimental effects on our landfills, waterways, and oceans,” Calderon said.

This isn’t just Calderon’s crusade. The California cities of San Luis Obispo and Davis both passed straws-on-request laws last year, and Manhattan Beach maintains a prohibition on all disposable plastics. And up in Seattle, food service businesses won’t be allowed to offer plastic straws or utensils as of July.

It truly is a shame what has happened to that state. Every time I beg my wife to move us out of this despicable shithole of a city, I remember I could be living in California.

  1. The biggest problem with Kaliforniastan is the idiots that leave it because of how bad it’s gotten, then vote for the same stupid shite and same stupid leftists they left because of. See Seattle for case in point. It’s like a contagion spreading.

  2. I’m sure the ratio of straws given out in fast food restaurants far exceed the number given out in “sit down” restaurants. What a piddling, niggling, useless and punitive law! Take some poor guy making minimum wage plus tips, throw him in jail for six months , during which he probably loses his job, and fine him a thousand bucks, which, admittedly Nancy Pelosi tells is is but “crumbs”, over what could amount to a “he said/ she said” infraction.
    Then, let’s take law enforcement off of something useful to bust and book this guy!

  3. We are forced to put up with this crap almost continually here in CA, if not from the Lazyslature then from the idiotic big-city mayors. This state attracts all manner of mental midgets, too many of which think it’s OK to constantly try to change much of the cultural climate that the rest of us are satisfied with. With every success these beings gain, it becomes even harder to resist the cultural attacks, as the balance of political power in the State gets further out of balance. If you could see the dollar figure these lefties have racked up as pure waste, you would be astonished. It’s well into the two-digit billions now, and as more money gets thrown away trying to “fix” the “homeless” problem, more and more bums are drawn to CA to get the free goodies. Do they vote? You bet your a$$ they do, and here comes more imbalance. I’m about ready to fly the 51st State of Jefferson flag under my 24/7 Old Glory.

    Mike – OMFG, I just saw that.

  6. I am willing to bet this jerks carbon footprint is much larger than any of ours. Until these idiots practice what they preach, I am going to ask for 2 straws and be thankful I live in the midwest. We don’t have that crap going on very often in the fly-over states.
