No, that asinine letter has nothing to do with 'the left', although it is couched in similar rhetoric. That letter has everything to do with being a jerk. Believing holiday lights are an attack upon non-Christian religions? Give me a break, that's just stupid, not 'lefty'. I'm guessing many of the supportive replies were from left-leaning types as well. Whatever wacky fundamentalism you're trying to ascribe to 'the left' as a whole is absurd. Just as absurd as the writer of the letter.

So, Kurt, you appreciate that somehow one idiot in Minnesota complaining begets 2 tellings of the story that has you blaming the Democratic party for canceling Christmas.  Do you think...just maybe...you would have been better off just leaving it alone and going about your own holiday celebrations? 

Who cares what others think about your way of celebrating?  Sure, if it includes direct images or language of hate, maybe you should re-think it, but if you're merely putting up Christmas lights as your way to make your place look a bit more special during this shit-storm of a year,  who TF cares?

Blaming the Democrats only reinforces the hate, and I know that's not your intention for the holidays.

Kurt, we finally agree on something.  I'm skeptical that the bag bans on a town by town basis do much.  NJ has one coming in a few years, which makes a bit more sense.  As others noted, bags find their way into everything...everywhere. 

I would totally agree with taxing plastic based on its environmental impact.  Charge $1 for a plastic bag at the grocery store.  See how long it takes for people to change. 

I think it's interesting that you post this in the Democratic Party thread.  I'd guess it was delivered to you with its own biases and assumptions.

 

My opinion is based on anecdotal eyeball evidence: 

Before DC imposed a 5-cent charge for plastic bags, they were floating on the streets and sidewalks all around town. After the tax, they disappeared. 

I paid that 5-cent charge once at the grocery store and it stuck in my craw. The store sold re-usable cloth bags for 99 cents and let you exchange worn-out ones for new bags. I have a huge stash of 'em at my place. 
 
I noticed the same thing at, of all places, the dump. The fences and trees around the place were covered with the damn things, stuck like tumbleweeds. Staff would periodically clean them off - a considerable expense passed along to taxpayers. After the ban started, much fewer bags = much less expense. We've since moved to a place without a bag ban, and they're the single most common plastic trash item. Worse, they're often stuck in difficult-to-reach places. At least heavier plastic trash is generally on the ground. Sure there's always gonna be jerkwads who dump their trash roadside, but at least it stays mostly in one place, instead of floating hither and yon.

I still have mixed feelings about bag bans, but anecdotal evidence shows they reduce visible trash.

Figures.  Metaphors.  You kids.  Maybe a generational thing ...

But it doesn't matter what you think it means. 

It matters what I think it means and I think that the message I sent was the one received since I wasn't speaking to you to begin with.

OBTW ... I once heard that at low tide no man is an islander.

Didnt realize this was a partisan political issue, but gotta stop the plastic madness somewhere.
ps, many mfg are looking for ways to cut plastic packaging, but it still highly effective in reducing damage/ product shrink...whereas a plastic bag provides little value.

Comrade KarmaKarma.

You support an obese President with the most gorgeous man breasts and the sexiest, hottest love handles/lard ass in America. 

Do you own shares in opioid companies?  Do you own shares in companies that make medicine for those suffering dementia?    Do you own shares in diabetes companies?  Do you own shares in companies selling pop-a-pill cures for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder?  

Why do you appear to have a vested interested in reducing American immunity to diseases and making Americans stupid?
