This won’t last. They celebrated the poor tax on plastic bags (so much for helping the working class, comrades) but they don’t like it up ’em.

“That is all well and good, but according to further investigation by Reason, these “strawless lids” are kind of too good to be true because they increase the chain’s plastic use. By their calculations, this switch actually adds between .32 and .88 grams of plastic per drink, compared to the weight of their current plastic lid and straw combo.”

Capitalism wins …again.

And sippy cups are what babies use, making the safe space memes almost -too- easy.

1. Be civil. 2. Be logical or fair. 3. Do not bore me.
