    You guys remember when NYC Mayor Bloomberg tried to limit soda cup sizes so you wouldn’t drink soda?

    This is why sensible people put Trump in the WH.
    This country has so many crazy people running around that it’s actually scary.

    Banning plastic straws isnt going to change anything.

    Straws used to be paper, back when cups were paper with wax coating.

    Also not sure how glass can decompose … I donn’t get it but I sure like candy bars 🙂

  9. Why don’t these nut jobs leave the American alone? As if banning plastic straws will change anything.

    I’m going to hoard plastic straws to show these tree huggers that they can’t infringe upon my right to bear plastic straws.

    I am gob smacked by the lack of concern for the environment in the oceans shown in the comments on this website… I would prefer this website would be about food and entertainment, but since it ventures into politics, I am shocked at the cavalier attitude regarding the effect of plastics on the oceans. We live in South Florida, people… We have to care about our Ocean. The ocean isn’t conservative or liberal, it’s not Democrat or Republican. Do you really want endangered turtles swallowing plastic straws? Would you be OK with your domestic pets swallowing classic straws? Why are you OK if it happens with turtles, or fish? Geez.

      I say screw the turtles.
